Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms have a long lasting reputation for helping to heal various mental and emotional disorders. Depression is one of them, and while the Native Americans who used magic mushrooms in the past for various healing rituals already knew of the impressive results that the mushrooms could lead to, science is also catching up with studies that have already proven the mushrooms’ beneficial impact.
Although they are known to be extremely potent when fighting depression, magic mushrooms are often best used with additional therapy. A recent study showed that two small doses of psilocybin were enough to yield a stabilizing effect, but they also had to be accompanied by a few supportive therapy sessions. The good news is that psilocybin mushrooms actually lead to enduring anti-depressant results, and that they can rapidly improve even cases of severe depression in a visible way. More good news is that Hidden Forest Mushroom Spores create an affordable mushroom spore kit to help researchers further explore mental health care opportunities.
A significantly growing body of research continues to prove the important role that psilocybin can play in helping to treat depression resulting from a variety of sources, including cancer. Those cancer patients who suffered from depression and took a regular dose of psilocybin were shown to durably improve on their symptoms of depression without any side effects. These types of studies point to the promise that future legislation could decriminalize magic mushrooms in many states, allowing for at least the medical use of psilocybin in treating depression.
