Research Fields Where the Study of Magic Mushrooms Could Be Beneficial in the Future
There are over 100 mushrooms which contain psilocybin, the active ingredient in the so-called “magic mushrooms”. Although these mushrooms have been used for thousands of years, the compound was isolated only in 1957, and was produced synthetically in 1958. Ever since the ‘70s, mushrooms have been included among the most restrictive category. Nevertheless, there are many researchers stating that these mushrooms can have a beneficial effect on human health.
Therefore, the study of magic mushrooms could be very useful in the future. According to the studies, mushrooms can be beneficial for treating depression and tobacco addiction, i.e. smoking. For instance, only 3 doses of psilocybin, together with therapy, helped patients overcome their smoking habit.
Some other fields of research are that for cancer-related anxiety. Apparently, what these mushrooms succeed in doing is helping people cope with their problems and learn from their experiences. The professionals at Shaman Mushroom Spores support increased research and studies to determine how magic mushrooms can have a positive impact in treating mental disorders and generally increase the life-quality of those suffering from such illnesses. Their brain connectivity was improved not only during the treatment per se, but also up to three weeks after it was completed.
