“When we look within ourselves with psilocybin, we discover that we do not have to look outward toward the futile promise of life that circles distant stars in order to still our cosmic loneliness. We should look within; the paths of the heart lead to nearby universes full of life and affection for humanity.” - Terence McKenna True Hallucinations

Psychedelics: The scientific renaissance

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most common questions asked when beginning to explore mushroom therapy

What is Psilocybin?

Psilocybin cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principal active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Psilocybin mushrooms belong to the fungus family Hymenogastraceae and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis. More than 180 psilocybin-containing mushrooms species are found all over the world and many can induce hallucinogenic/psychedelic effects when consumed.

-Increased libido
-Better mood and stress management
-Deeper sleep & energy
-A greater sense of connection and gratitude
-Creativity and focus
-Less dependance on alcohol & SSRI(Anti-depressant) medication

What is a Micro dose?

In short, a microdose is a very small portion of a substance—in this case psilocybin. The dose should be small enough that it won’t cause any relative perceptual changes, meaning you won’t have any hallucinations and apart from passive feelings of warmth and comfort you won't feel high. Even on a microdose you can continue to go to school, work, or operate in any social setting as if you had taken nothing at all. Most people find they function better than normal while on a microdose.

Is Psilocybin safe?

According to multiple university and medical reports psilocybin aka magic mushrooms appear to be extremely safe to ingest. The findings of a high profile US study found that only .2% of almost 10,000 people who reported taking psilocybin hallucinogenic mushrooms in 2016 reported that they needed emergency medical treatment, according to the annual Global Drug Survey. The survey, of more than 120,000 participants in 50 countries, found that the rates of emergency medical treatment for MDMA, LSD, alcohol and cocaine were almost five times higher.

Is Psilocybin detectable on drug tests?

Drug tests do not usually look for shrooms. These substances do not show up on many of the tests involved in common or everyday purposes, such as screening job applicants. While many standard panel tests will not detect mushrooms, there are specialized tests that will.

Is it safe to mix psilocybin and alcohol?

Generally it is considered safe but not recommended. Magic mushrooms are naturally occurring and contain psilocybin, a substance that has hallucinogenic effects. Hallucinogens interact with serotonin receptors in the brain which causes a variety of side effects, especially when mixed with alcohol. Drinking alcohol while taking mushrooms can lead to a number of health problems due to the fact that alcohol is a central nervous system (CNS) depressant and psilocybin causes impaired perception. Because of this, you may not realize how much alcohol you’ve consumed in a given time.
