Researching various substances for their curing potential is extremely important, as it may lead to medical breakthroughs. Psilocybin is no exception, even if it is banned.
Psilocybin is an indole-based secondary metabolite produced by several mushroom species. Hallucinogenic mushrooms, also known as magic mushrooms, contain this substance. Psilocybin and its active metabolite, psilocin, are similar to lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and are on the controlled substance list. Growing magic mushrooms for consumption or trade is prohibited, but this does not mean that scientific research must also be stopped. Fortunately, it can continue due to a legal gray area regarding psilocybin spores.
The spores are not prohibited because, before they germinate, they do not yet contain psilocybin. This substance only appears in the next stages of development. This detail – apparently insignificant – means that the spores can be sold, purchased and used to grow laboratory grade mushrooms for scientific research.

Unlike LSD, psilocin has no significant effect on dopamine receptors and affects the noradrenergic system only at very high doses. The psychedelic effects of psilocin are thought to originate from its agonistic activity on the 5-HT2A/C and 5-HT1A serotonin receptors, but there is still a way to go until a scientific conclusion will be formulated.
