There is no secret about it: the ritual use of magic mushrooms began more than 3,000 years ago, and the first documented use dated back to the 16th century. In many ancient and more recent cultures, they have been seen as a way to spiritual enlightenment and to connect deeper with oneself.
The modern Western world got away from these practices, forbidding them due to their potential to cause harm. However, the therapeutic potential of psilocybin (the hallucinogenic substance contained in magic shrooms) should not be ignored, not even now, as our civilization has become so… civilized.
This substance was isolated by Albert Hoffman in 1957 and then synthesized in 1958. Since then, many researchers have become very interested in it and have found that it has the potential to change that side of the personality that is closely related to imagination, feelings, abstract ideas, aesthetics, and creativity in general. Additionally, ongoing studies are increasingly showing the positive effects of the medical use of psilocybin in treating anxiety and depression. Medical researchers can find psilocybin spores for sale on ecommerce sites.
Therefore, the latest approaches to legalizing magic mushrooms are focused on decriminalizing the use of this substance, but from here to making magic mushrooms legal, there is a long way.
However, it is essential to keep emphasizing the medical benefits of psilocybin use and the importance of continuing research in this direction.
