Although science is only just starting to recognize the benefits of magic mushrooms, psilocybe cubensis mushrooms have been used since ancient times as part of healing and spiritual rituals.
Most rituals were unregulated, but some also specifically focused on the use of large enough dosages that could produce a consciousness altering effect in the user. These episodes were considered not only to transform the person’s emotional and mental setup, but also to cure various diseases and help them achieve spiritual breakthroughs.
Some healing rituals have survived the test of time and are still practiced today in various places in South and Central America. The best known ones are healing rituals that are used when a member of the community is suffering from some type of mental or physical disease, and the mushrooms are used in conjunction with the ritual to trigger changes in the patient’s body.
Various types of magic mushrooms have been used since prehistoric times, and their recreational and ritualistic use can be traced to ancient civilizations including those on the American continent, Europe, Asia and Africa. Ancient Greece and Siberia, as well as the Mayan and Aztec cultures are just some of the ones that have been solidly documented to have used magic mushrooms as part of their rituals on a regular basis.
