A Brief History of Magic Mushrooms

There is so much attention being placed on magic mushrooms today. We are all eager to uncover the endless benefits they have to offer our mental health and spiritual lives. Scientists have discovered that shrooms can positively change our lives through spiritual awakenings and alleviating mental conditions, such as anxiety, depression, and addiction. But how did it all start? Who discovered shrooms, and how did we end up here? Let us look at a brief history of magic mushrooms throughout the different historical eras.

 

Prehistoric Times

Archeologists have discovered mushroom-depicting iconographies that date back to 10,000 B.C.E. This proves that mushrooms have been used since the pre-civilization era. They were considered sacred by the various communities. Shrooms are common across all seven continents, which means that people have consumed them throughout history.

 

Ancient Times

history 3

In the more recent past, tribal societies like the shamans have used mushrooms for spiritual, religious, and therapeutic purposes. During this time, most communities like the Aztecs, Mayans, and Toltecs assumed that the psychedelic experience offered by the shrooms was an indication that the shrooms paved the way for the people to communicate with the gods.

Serbia’s ancient tribes incorporated psychedelic shrooms in their divinatory rituals. They also used the shrooms to promote higher than the typical physical capacity that enabled them to withstand the high temperatures of the Serbian region.

Ancient civilizations like the Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians were regular consumers of psychedelics. They used them recreationally as intoxicants and also as anesthesia during human blood sacrifices.

 

Modern History  

The use of psychedelic mushrooms in modern history can be traced back to 1799, when a family picked, cooked, and consumed psychotropic shrooms unknowingly. Consequently, they experienced euphoria, confusion, altered perception of time and self, nausea, and hallucinations.

The Haida Gwaii community found in Canada holds all the Canadian magic mushroom history. They were the first community in Canada to join other nations in utilizing shrooms for therapeutic and spiritual purposes.

 

How did the Term Magic Mushrooms Come to be?

In 1957, Life Magazine wrote an expose dubbed ‘Seeking the Magic Mushrooms,’ which featured a story that involved a husband, wife, a famous mycologist. The three were the first people from the West to participate in a sacred indigenous ceremony officiated and presided over by Maria Sabina, a famous shaman.

The news of the event travelled fast and soon caught the attention of the famous LSD creator, Dr. Albert Hoffman. By 1958, the scientist had identified and isolated the two main active compounds in magic mushrooms, psilocybin, and psilocin.

Between 1960 and 1963, scientists Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert conducted several studies that explored the shrooms’ various applications. However, a concern was raised regarding the safety of the compound and the test subjects (students from Harvard University).

A bad trip that ended with a student being sedated, the scientists abusing the drug, and going against the law that prohibited the use of undergraduate students as test subjects led to the firing of the two scientists. This was around the time when the hippie movement was rampant.

Unfortunately, in 1971, psychedelics were banned via the 1971 UN convention on psychedelic substances. It wasn’t until recently that people worldwide began shaking off the stigma associated with psychedelics and gradually began to accept them for their myriad benefits.

Today, shrooms are very popular, especially in Canada. The use of psilocybin is slowly moving away from being a social or legal issue. Shroom enthusiasts are free to purchase a wide range of shrooms across the many dispensaries. Microdosing has become a growing trend that offers consumers numerous benefits. 

 

The Future

With the global psychedelic renaissance, we can expect more psychedelic-based studies in the future. Collaborations will be inevitable, and the only expected outcome is that science will finally catch up with the knowledge of the ancient civilization tribes.

What is the Future of Medical Psychedelics in Canada?

Canada has some of the most progressive health policies and takes the front seat in drug reforms. Besides having the best cannabis globally, Canada is currently considered a hotbed for psychedelics in general and psychedelic-assisted research.

The renaissance is real, and it’s just getting started. One thing is for sure; the future for medical psychedelics in Canada is bright. To understand the strides we have made, it is prudent that we look into the past, present, and future of psychedelics.

 

The Past

In the 1940s and 1950s, researchers across the globe were busy exploring the different types of psychedelics and the myriad of benefits they could provide. The substances displayed immense therapeutic, medical, and spiritual potential.

Substances like LSD and psilocybin were highly beneficial in treating mental illnesses, addiction and dependency. They provided a more efficient, quicker, and safer alternative to electroshock therapy, years of therapy, solitary confinement, and lobotomies. Some of these methods were crude and are considered significant contributors to the stigma associated with mental illness to date.

Psychedelics made the process of managing and treating addiction and mental illnesses more humane and economical.

Unfortunately, several high-profile individuals were concerned about the risks that psychedelics posed. Additionally, this was when the ‘hippies’ and ‘free spirits’ were rampant. The disdain for the psychedelics and the people who actively consumed them triggered a widespread movement that was specifically started to discontinue their use in any form. In 1968, psychedelics were denounced, and this meant that all the research conducted had to be abandoned.

 

The Present  

Fast forward to the present day. It’s a new dawn, and the psychedelic renaissance is here. Canada has become the hub for psychedelic-related research. How did we reach here? What is fueling this sudden interest in psychedelics?

 

The Canadian Mental Health Crisis

The Mental health crisis in Canada has become a menace. More and more people are suffering, and the current solutions don’t seem to work for everyone, hence the need to seek alternatives. Psychedelics such as psilocybin and LSD offer the best alternative. Research indicates that psilocybin can positively alter lives by rewiring the brain to adapt new thoughts, ideas, habits, and memories (neuroplasticity).  

medical shrooms

 

Rediscovery of Past Research and the Push from other Countries

Canada is slowly revisiting the research that was either abandoned, criminalized, or forgotten during the earlier days. We are starting from where we stopped, and now, the laws are more accommodative and flexible (although we are not 100% there).

In the US, numerous states are taking bold steps by decriminalizing psychedelics through ballot measures. Oregon became the first state to legalize the use of psilocybin for the treatment of mental conditions. This acceptance of psychedelics by the people and the government in other states has helped create awareness of the immense benefits the substances have to offer.

 

The Booming Cannabis Industry

The evolution of the law surrounding cannabis has shown that it is possible for things to change, even those that seem impossible. Cannabis has been through a series of social and legal evolutions to attain its status as a legal substance. The optimism it brought has allowed psychedelic advocates to push for some leeway, which they have attained in the form of exemptions. Canadians can now access psychedelic-centered treatment through an exemption under section 56 of the CDSA.

 

The Future

Looking at the promising research, the shift in government perspective on psychedelics, and the global psychedelic trend, it is safe to predict that there is a high chance that the Canadian government will legalize the medical use of psychedelics for specific conditions, scientific purposes, palliative care, and maybe for spiritual reasons.

This groundbreaking change may result from legislation, exemptions under section 56 of the CDSA, individualized approvals from Health Canada, or through a court challenge.

In August 2020, the Health minister granted exemptions to several cancer patients to use psilocybin as part of their end-of-life care. Since then, many Canadians have received the same exemptions for various conditions and others for non-palliative care.

The hope is that the Canadian federal government will continue with its progressive drug policy reforms and lead the way towards the medicinal acceptance of psychedelics such as magic mushrooms.

dried lizard king

Lizard King: Magic Mushroom Strain Feature

Origin

The Lizard King Magic Mushrooms is a highly coveted mushroom strain that is a cult favorite in Canada and beyond. This Psilocybe Cubensis strain was discovered by Lizard King, a man who played a significant role in the discovery of many other Mexican-based specimens. He found the shrooms growing on a blend of horses’ stool and wood.

It is estimated that this mushroom strain rose to prominence back in the 60s. This is because its name (Lizard King) depicts the counterculture movement dominant at that time. The lead singer of the world-famous rock band dubbed ‘the Doors,’ Jim Morrison also went by the moniker Lizard King. His experience living with desert animals like lizards and snakes earned him the nickname. Additionally, Jim also identified the lizard as his spirit animal, or spiritual alter ego.

The Lizard King shroom variety has average to above-average potency and is guaranteed to offer its consumers a boost in moods and levels of excitement. In the right dosage, Lizard King offers spiritual awakening.

 

Appearance

While fresh, the Lizard King stem takes on a white hue while the cap is beige. When dried, the cap becomes dark beige or brown, and the stem is light brown. The strain is usually between 5 to 12 centimeters in height and 2cm to 3cm wide in diameter. Its dense, thick caps make it look puffy and stuffed, while the fruits are average-sized.

lizard king 1

 

Psychedelic experience

The effects set in 10 to 30 minutes after consumption, and immediately, the consumer experiences enhanced moods, excitement, and euphoria. The Lizard King allows you to get in touch with your inner self and connect with the people and things around you. This strain is perfect for anyone seeking to get high while out exploring mother nature. It provides minimum body high.

You will experience mild or intense visual hallucinations, depending on the dosage. A majority of users have described the effects of Lizard King as life-changing, whereby it puts the user in deep reflective thoughts that are coupled with strong feelings and, sometimes, a mystical experience.

 

Therapeutic properties

The Lizard King heals the body, mind, and spirit. Shrooms have been scientifically proven to hold numerous therapeutic properties. They help with anxiety, depression, stress, and addiction.

 

Growing

Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms 2

Penis Envy: Magic Mushroom Strain Feature

Origin

The Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms strain’s origin can be traced back to the deep parts of the Amazon. It was discovered by Terence McKenna, a renowned author, psychonaut, ethnobotanist, and lecturer during one of his many visits to the massive forest.

When Terence went back to the USA, he began cultivating the shrooms, and later on, he shared the Penis Envy prints with some of his colleagues, including Steven Pollock. Ultimately, the Penis Envy reached different parts of the world and is now regarded as one of the most prized shroom variety.

The rare and sought-after strain is regarded as the most potent variety of Cubensis Psilocybe due to the high psilocybin/psilocin and psychotropic alkaloid levels. In fact, the experience it offers is often compared to that of much more potent psychedelics, such as DMT and LSD.   

Appearance

The physical attributes of the Penis Envy have primarily contributed to its name. Looking at the strain, you will notice that it looks like a large penis. The striking resemblance to the human organ and its enviable size explains the name given to this shroom variety.

The strain looks smaller than other shrooms, but it does have a large, dense, thick, and healthy-looking white stem. It has an undeveloped bulbous cap that looks more rounded than your typical psilocybin Cubensis strain. This is due to the lack of a ‘velum or veil’ that separates the shroom’s stem from the cap. Its primary role is to keep the spores intact until the shroom is fully matured.  

Penis Envy Magic Mushrooms

Psychedelic experience

The effects occur almost immediately, and the psychedelic trip is characterized by wavy and intense visuals, time distortion, deep introspection, hearing color, and seeing sounds. Additionally, one is likely to have a deeper connection with the universe while on an out-of-body experience. On a high dose, you may achieve total ego dissolution.

The Penis Envy offers minimum body high, meaning the consumer will feel lighter, less tired, and more energetic. This shroom variety offers 6-8 hours of a clean psychedelic high.

Therapeutic properties

The Penis Envy Shroom has both medical and mental health benefits to the consumer. Shrooms have been scientifically proven to hold numerous therapeutic properties. They help with anxiety, depression, stress, and addiction.

 

Growing

Penis Envy Shroom strain is difficult to grow; thus, it is not recommended for amateur mycologists. The high levels of difficulty can be attributed to its lack of a velum which causes less than ideal sporulation. The cultivator will have to use a high number of shrooms to acquire a viable spore syringe.

Additionally, the Penis Envy strain required special treatment and care due to its high susceptibility to contamination.

Psilocybin for Athletes

Across the globe, we can see a psychedelic renaissance. The once uninformed and biased views on psychedelics have slowly transformed to acceptance. More and more people are tapping into the numerous benefits offered by hallucinogens, and athletes are at the top of the list.

According to researchers, different psychedelics such as psilocybin, LSD, ayahuasca, DMT ibogaine, and ketamine are highly beneficial to athletes due to their ability to heal and manage mental conditions like anxiety, stress, and depression.

Major sports associations like the UFC are looking into how psychedelics can help their athletes with brain health. Notable celebrity athletes like Mike Tyson, Riley Cote, Lamar Odom, and Ian McCall have come out to say how psychedelics helped them overcome addiction, brain injuries, and mental health conditions.

Below, we look at how psilocybin from magic mushrooms can help athletes with their performance and overall physical and mental health.

 

Psilocybin Rewires the Brain

brain 2

Athletes who engage in high-impact games like hockey and wrestling are subject to numerous body blows, and some might end up on the head. Such blows may lead to concussions, which could have adverse long-term effects on the athlete, leading to headaches, insomnia, migraines, dizziness, aggression, and in some cases, suicidal tendencies.

Results gathered from a 2018 study indicated that psychedelics like psilocybin could rewire the brain by facilitating the increase of neural connections.

 

Psilocybin Enhances Convergent and Divergent Thinking

Did you know that psilocybin can improve cognitive function? According to recent studies, microdosing psilocybin does enhance divergent and convergent thinking. For athletes, this means that they can perform optimally during matches. They can come up with better strategies that give them the upper hand against an opponent.

 

Psilocybin Increases Focus

A psilocybin ‘trip’ can cause ego dissolution. With ego death, a person becomes the best version of themselves: they let go of the negative state of mind, competitiveness, and selfishness. This allows them to immerse themselves in the game entirely.

An athlete’s level of focus can make or break the game. With the help of psilocybin, the plays can keep their mind on the activity ahead of them. When the athlete is focused, the body and mind become one: the individual experiences balance and quicker, more precise reflexes.

 

Psilocybin Improves Cardiovascular Endurance

endurance 1

Small to moderate doses of psilocybin can help improve cardiovascular endurance. With magic mushrooms, an athlete can get a boost in their physical stamina. This happens since the heart is able to pump extra blood that boosts their stamina during any activity they engage in.

As a result, the athlete can perform better and for a longer duration without feeling fatigued.

 

Psilocybin Helps Curb Performance-Related Anxiety and Stress 

When an athlete is faced with mental distress, their performance dwindles. Stress and anxiety are some of the leading factors that push athletes to drug and substance abuse.

Psilocybin alleviates mental conditions by working on serotonin receptors, which are responsible for improved moods. With the mental issues handled, the athlete can concentrate fully on the game and give it his best. The psychedelic has also been known to help with pain and inflammation

Additionally, psilocybin offers an effective and natural solution for all athletes who struggle with various types of addictions. Hundreds of athletes like Riley Cote have attested to its effectiveness.

 

Take Away

Psilocybin has so many benefits to offer athletes. However, the necessary research needed to push for its legalization is still limited. In the next few years, the hope is that the stigma around psychedelics will be discarded and that more countries, states, and provinces will embrace the therapeutic potential that psilocybin possesses.

What are the Most Popular Magic Mushrooms Strains?

Magic mushrooms come in a variety of strains: some contain higher concentrations of psilocybin and psilocin than others, and each offers consumers unique psychedelic experiences. Below, we look at some of the most popular magic mushroom strains.

 

1. Golden Teacher Magic MushroomsGolden Teacher – Magic Mushrooms 1

The Golden Teacher magic mushrooms is the best strain if you are looking for a trip that will lead to a spiritual awakening. The shamanistic experience will leave you enlightened and more connected with yourself, others, and nature.

The strain gets its name from its appearance ‘Golden’ and the wise lessons it offers during the trip’ teacher.’ It has a thick stem, and the caps are wide and golden in color.

Golden Teacher shrooms are by far our #1 top seller.

 

2. Penis Envy Magic MushroomsPenis Envy Magic Mushrooms 3

The Penis Envy magic mushroom is rare to find due to four reasons: a small percentage of its mushroom drop spores, it is easily contaminated, the shelf-life is short, and it is highly sought-after. This explains the slightly higher prices.  

That notwithstanding, this particular strain is one of the best in the world. It offers a transformative trip characterized by intense visuals and a shamanic experience.

It is twice or thrice as potent as most strains, and the effects are almost instant (20 to 30 minutes). Users will experience hallucinations and time dilation. In high doses, one may hear colors and see sound. Due to the trip’s intensity, the strain is not recommended for beginners or casual shroom consumers.

The name ‘penis envy’ results from its physical appearance: it has a thick stalk with a round orange head.

 

3. Blue Meanies Magic Mushrooms

Blue Meanie Magic Mushrooms

Blue Meanies magic mushrooms is, without a doubt, one of the most popular magic mushroom strains. It’s a potent strain of psilocybe cubensis.

Our Blue Meanie Magic Mushrooms are of the P. Cubensis type and is not to be mistaken.

This shroom is known to be a prolific fruiter, often growing many flushes and easily bruising (blueing) at the point of physical contact. Expect above average intensity compared to other cubensis shrooms strains.

 

4. Amazonian Magic MushroomsAmazonian Shrooms

These thick, fleshy shrooms offer users an almost magical balance of spiritual experience and colorful visuals for over 50 years. Over the years, Amazonian magic mushrooms have become one of the most sought-after strains.

addiction 3

Are Magic Mushrooms Addictive?

Magic mushrooms are diverse in their uses, effects, and compound composition. In the past, shamans used the fungi for spiritual and religious purposes, while the hippies sought it for its recreational properties.

Along the way, it was discovered that the shrooms held the potential of becoming powerful therapeutic agents that could help with conditions such as depression, anxiety, and addiction.

While a substantial number of people have embraced magic mushrooms, there are still some uncertainties surrounding the fungi. For example, many people have this question lingering in their minds: are magic mushrooms addictive?

 

Magic Mushrooms are not addictive

Are magic mushrooms addictive? The answer is no; it is not possible to become addicted to or dependent on magic mushrooms. Addiction can be defined as the inability of an individual to stop using a substance despite the adverse side effects attached to its use. An addict will continue seeking the drug even after witnessing or experiencing health, family, or social problems brought about by its consumption.

When a person becomes dependent on a substance, they cannot function at full capacity without consuming the drug. They experience physical and mental withdrawal symptoms, such as sweating, anxiety, vomiting, insomnia, and general body pain.

Drugs such as alcohol and opioids may require an individual to go to rehab to overcome the addiction, but with psilocybin, ceasing use does not require any professional intervention.

 

Magic mushroom tolerance

Consuming shrooms regularly will lead to the body building up a tolerance. With each dose, the body adapts to the psilocybin, making it impossible to attain the same results with a set quantity of the fungi. Increasing the dosage becomes imperative in order to enjoy the myriad of benefits it offers.  

However, regular consumption over a long period may render the drug ineffective regardless of the dose quantity. With such a high tolerance for psilocybin, an individual’s system becomes tolerant of other types of hallucinogens, such as LSD, ayahuasca, and MDMA. This is referred to as cross-tolerance.

addiction 2

 

Can you overdose on magic mushrooms?

Consuming an overdose of magic shrooms may lead to effects such as terrifying hallucinations, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, or coma. The toxicity levels of mushrooms are too low for it to be fatal even when taken in excess.

For magic mushrooms to be fatal, you will have to consume a thousand times the regular dose. This makes it nearly impossible for anyone to die from an overdose. 

An overdose episode of shrooms takes around 8 hours to end, although the consumer might still experience some side effects for days.

Best practices when it comes to magic mushroom consumption

To avoid psilocybin tolerance, always ensure you take the recommended dose of magic mushrooms when tripping. Do not overdose or take the shrooms regularly. Tripping once or twice a month is sufficient to achieve your spiritual, recreational, therapeutic, or religious needs.

Ensure you are in the right state of mind and that the set and setting is favorable to mushroom consumption.

 

Take away

Magic mushrooms are not addictive, and it’s almost impossible to die from an overdose. However, regular use can lead to tolerance, which means you will have to take higher doses of psilocybin to achieve the results you once did on a lower dose. Always ensure you take shrooms rarely, safely, within the recommended dose.

Magic Mushroom Dispensary offers Canadian residents a wide variety top-notch magic mushroom products sourced from all over the world from edibles to capsules to dried or raw magic  mushrooms. Visit our online shop today for the best deals.

mistakes

5 Mistakes to Avoid During Your Psychedelic Trip

A psychedelic trip can either be recreational or purposeful. The majority of shroom consumers turn to the product for a life-altering experience that changes the course of their lives for the better. After the trip, one becomes more perspective, in tune with the surroundings, and open to foreign ideas, ideals, and opinions.

However, there are a series of events that might lead to a bad experience. With an experienced trip sitter, it is easier to overcome any unforeseen outcomes and have a smooth trip. On very rare occasions, one may need to end up in an emergency room.

To avoid such instances, you need to avoid the five mistakes that we have highlighted below:

mistakes

1. Not Being Prepared

Before embarking on your psychedelic trip, ensure that you are imparted with the necessary knowledge on the ins and outs of shroom consumption. This is especially true if you are an amateur or casual consumer.

Ensure you know what is normal and what is not so that you can seek assistance at the right time. Research on the correct dosage that will allow you to achieve your intended results, look into the set and setting, and ways to heighten your experience.

 

2. Overlooking the Set and Setting

The set and setting refer to the consumer’s state of mind and the surroundings. Shrooms have a way of amplifying our innermost fears and emotions. If you trip on an unsettled mind frame, chances of experiencing a bad trip double, if not triple. Be mentally prepared for the trip and shake off any fears and doubts.

Additionally, where you trip and the company you choose play a significant role in determining how settled you will be during the entire journey. Choose a room you are comfortable in and adjust the lights and temperatures to an ideal setting. You could also trip outside as you enjoy nature. Take your time and choose a place that is free of people or any disturbance.

 

3. Mixing Shrooms with Other Mind-altering Substances like Alcohol

Combining shrooms and other substances like alcohol is a recipe for disaster. It is nearly impossible to predict the outcome and, in most cases, a bad trip is guaranteed.

To get the most from magic mushrooms, take them alone. This way, you can experience a full and uninterrupted trip. Substances like alcohol have been known to lower one’s inhibitions and impair judgement. You may also end up experiencing paranoia, nausea, and vomiting.

 

4. Forgetting to Stay Hydrated

Some of the side effects of tripping include dry mouth and cold sweats. To stay ahead of the situation, stay hydrated before, during, and after the trip. Every article on ‘having a good psychedelic trip’ emphasizes the need to drink plenty of water, and you shouldn’t take this lightly.

 

5. Not Having a Trip Sitter Around

A trip sitter is an individual who babysits the psychedelic consumer to ensure their trip is as smooth a possible. Their role includes assuring the consumer that everything is okay and ensuring that they are in the right set and setting to commence and complete the trip.

A sitter has substantial experience in psychedelic consumption and is usually someone that the consumer trusts and feels comfortable around.

 

Take Away

Avoiding these rookie mistakes will guarantee a safe, memorable and impactful psychedelic trip. Remember to let go of all distractions that may hinder you from attaining your full potential.

 

Shrooms have been associated with numerous therapeutic and spiritual benefits, and you are just a purchase away from attaining the benefits. At Magic Mushroom Dispensary, there is always something for everyone. Sign up and get access to a vast collection of dried shrooms, edibles, and capsules.
