There is large number of fungi characterized by their content of psilocybin, in different concentrations. There are about 200 fungi, in the basidiomycota group, that contain this substance; they can be found in various areas in America, Europe and Asia. They are known as magic or hallucinogenic mushrooms and they have been used for millennia, in a playful or spiritual way, especially in ritualistic and shamanic contexts.
The amount of psilocybin content in these mushroom species is variable, (often between 0.1 and 1% of the dried mushrooms’ weight). Regardless of it, cultivation, production, manufacture, processing, supply, sale, distribution or other operations involving the circulation of this substance – all of these are still illegal in the United Stated.
However, the spores can be purchased legally from Hidden Forest Mushroom Spores, because they do not contain psilocybin, and are useful for research and studying. What makes a laboratory grade mushroom so special is precisely its potential to be used for treating certain disorders – and this potential must not be neglected. These mushrooms have been found to be useful in alleviating mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, and researching these benefits further may help a lot of people in the future.
Recently, psilocybin has been decriminalized in Oregon, as well as in a few city councils in Colorado and California. Make sure to check reliable, accurate sources of information on the legality of using psilocybin and other psychedelic drugs in your state.
