Psilocybe Cubensis, also known as magic mushrooms, was intensely researched in the 1960s and 1970s. Still, the legal ban on the possession and usage of mushrooms that came about in the 1980s stopped medical research as well. However, scientific interest has turned towards magic mushrooms again at the beginning of the 21st century, most of the efforts being directed towards researching the medicinal effects of micro dosing magic mushrooms.
Companies that grow psilocybe cubensis spores for research highlight some of the achievements:
- Possible help with severe depression – several research programs have worked with volunteers to test the benefits of micro dosing magic mushrooms for treating depression and anxiety. The results are great so far, with most volunteers reporting instant and long-lasting positive effects after taking a single micro dose.
- Cognitive benefits – magic mushroom micro doses have proven efficient in improving various cognitive functions, including concentration and problem-solving.
- Emotionally fact – micro dosing magic mushrooms have positively affected the volunteer’s emotions and improved empathy, and inducing a generally more positive attitude towards life and its hardships.
- Beneficial for cancer patients – cancer is often associated with depression and anxiety, especially in the case of terminally ill patients. Magic mushroom micro doses have proven effective in inducing a more positive state of mind in these patients. The process has potentially positive effects on the whole treatment process as well.
