The Therapeutic Benefits of Magic Mushrooms


What Makes a Mushroom Magic?

While there are over 6 million fungi species in the world, we only use and eat a small fraction of mushrooms. Millions of fungi species that we have not yet studied are found in soil and plants, and scientists have identified and described around 10,000 mushrooms.

In those 10,000, we generally think of the mushrooms as edible, functional, poisonous, or magic. There are big differences between what you find at your local grocery store or pizzeria and what you might stumble upon as you hike through a forest. You should always exercise caution with mushrooms. 

Pro tip: Leave it to the experts who manufacture gummies to avoid becoming ill. 

Mushroom poisoning causes extremely unpleasant side effects such as diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting, and it can be extremely serious and needs to be addressed by a medical professional. The best way to play it safe is to assume all mushrooms in the wild—whether that's your backyard or a state park—are poisonous.

Magic mushrooms are prized for their psychedelic effects, but they, too, are generally poisonous. Thankfully, methods have been perfected to remove toxins from these mushrooms without removing the magic! Mushrooms can be dried and prepared for use in gummies and other products without fear of poisoning.

Magic mushrooms have been used and prized for centuries: those containing psilocybin were made especially popular in the 1960s counterculture movements, and many people still associate mushrooms with hippie culture. But it just might surprise you how far-reaching the magic mushroom movement is today, with many people microdosing them for their beneficial effects without experiencing the full-blown shrooming trip. 

How to Use Magic Mushrooms

How you will use magic mushrooms will be dictated both by preferences as well as your individual circumstances.

First and foremost, magic mushrooms should be used by adults only. If you are new to shrooming, you will want to decide which is better for you: a full dose or microdosing.

Taking the Plunge: A Full Dose

If you want to try a full dose of magic mushrooms, make sure you are doing so in a space and time that is free from restraints. Trying a full dose as you head into work for the day could lead to disaster! 

A shroom trip could have you seeing movement in inanimate objects, lights and colors around people, and any number of hallucinations. It may temporarily change your perception of time, have you experiencing vivid flashbacks, and, in some cases, you might begin to feel paranoia. 

For many people, shrooming offers a greater sense of mental clarity and self, allowing you to tap into thoughts and emotions that may not have previously risen to the surface.

Not two trips are the same, and no one can accurately predict how a full dose of magic mushrooms will affect you. Therefore, it is always wise to assign a "trip sitter," someone who will not be under the influence and can help to guide and calm you if needed.

Taking the Small Step: A Microdose

Many people prefer microdosing to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of magic mushrooms without the intense experience. A microdose, which would generally be around one-tenth of a full dose, may improve your mood or mental clarity but without hallucinations.

Those who microdose are able to enjoy the benefits of magic mushrooms as part of their daily routines; however, it is still best to try a microdose in a safe setting first to see how it affects your body before managing your normal responsibilities.

The Therapeutic Benefits of Magic Mushrooms

All of the mushrooms we consume—magic or not—offer benefits to our bodies. Did you know mushrooms are the only source of Vitamin D in the produce aisle? There are so many good reasons to add more mushrooms to your diet. They help with everything from inflammation to brain health. They are densely packed with nutrients while having a low-calorie count, making them an ideal food for those looking to lose extra weight and increase overall health.

Magic mushrooms offer their own set of benefits that scientists have been paying more attention to in recent years as we have unlocked their most promising potential: to offer a solution to treatment-resistant depression and other mental health conditions.

So far, we know from studies that magic mushrooms may help patients reduce the symptoms associated with depression and anxiety, and they may also be effective in those battling addiction, especially alcohol and nicotine.

Are Magic Mushrooms Legal?

Psilocybin is still illegal in most places, though efforts are underway in some areas to legalize it for the treatment of mental health disorders. We will likely see efforts that mirror those previously focused on legalizing medical marijuana, thanks to the growing evidence of mushrooms as a potentially powerful tool for mental health providers.

Fortunately, there is also an alternative for those seeking the benefits of mushrooms. Amanita Muscaria mushrooms do not contain psilocybin; however, they do contain muscimol, which creates psychoactive effects. Mushrooms containing muscimol are still legal in most places—with Louisiana being one exception.

Amanita Muscaria gummies allow you to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of mushrooms in either full-dose spiritual trips or as a microdose for a gentle uplift. Road Trip offers the best of Amanita mushrooms in a wide variety of flavors you are sure to love. 

If you have been on the fence about trying mushrooms, take a Road Trip to discover the magic that has been waiting for you!
