Magic mushrooms contain psilocybin, one of the many psychedelic substances that are studied for its potential beneficial effects on the human brain. In the case of patients suffering from depression, the connectivity of the brain is likely to become rigid and limited. What psilocybin manages to do is help the brain escape this to such a degree that the conventional therapies could not possibly manage to achieve.
After recent studies were performed, patients reported positive effects of psilocybin on their general state. And brain scans also revealed connectivity between different parts of the brain which were previously separated in the case of patients with depression.
Despite the encouraging news about the effects of these mushrooms on our nervous system, we have to underline the fact that the trials took place under supervised, clinical conditions. The regulated dose was established in a laboratory. There was a strong psychological support before, during and after the mushroom dosing. Researchers that rely on being able to find a full line of psilocybin spores for sale will continue to carefully direct and observe the impact magic mushrooms have on physical and mental health.
People who suffer from depression should not, under any circumstances, try to self-medicate with psilocybin, as this can actually do more harm than good. The findings stated that psilocybin is good not only for depression and anxiety, but for other conditions such as anorexia, bulimia, addiction, etc.
