Like all magic mushroom enthusiasts, here at MagicMushroomsDispensary.ca we love being at the forefront of discovering any new information on our favorite pastime – shrooms. We thought we’d take time to highlight some TV programs, documentaries and films that we think might be beneficial in helping you have an even better psychedelic experience.

In the first episode titled “The Healing Trip”, Paltrow takes a look at the benefits of psychedelics in an interview with Mark Haden, the executive director of MAPS Canada.

After Denver became the first U.S. city to decriminalize psilocybin, in May 2019, debate raged on whether Canada should follow suit.

Forbes describes it as “a must see for anyone interested in life, death and the pursuit of the planet’s well-being”. Fantastic fungi is a nature documentary which looks at the connection between humans and mycelium.

We are mushrooms.”
This fascinating feature documentary talks about the recent revival in psychedelic research, specifically on the various ways that psychedelics can be used in medicine.

The film features interviews with Gabor Maté, author of the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, and psychiatrist Julie Holland, among other guests.
This is an adaptation of Rick Strassman’s book that goes by the same name. This documentary investigates the psychoactive compound dimethyltryptamine (DMT), which is found in Ayahuasca, and almost every living organism on earth.

Society gives a great deal of attention to cancer treatment, but not much focus goes into the emotions of the person who’s dying of cancer.

For anyone interested in understanding the healing power of psychedelics, this is a must watch.
Aya: Awakenings is a documentary adapted from Rak Razam’s book Aya Awakenings: A Shamanic Odyssey.
