Studies on Magic Mushrooms and expert opinions

Magic Mushrooms

Nowadays, the popularity of magic mushrooms is increasing because they contain psychoactive compounds such as psilocybin, producing a range of effects including changes in perception, thought, and emotion. There has been a growing interest in the therapeutic potential of magic mushrooms, leading to a surge in research on the topic. Here are some of the current studies on magic mushrooms and the experts’ opinions in the field.

Studies on Magic Mushrooms

Several studies have investigated the therapeutic potential of magic mushrooms with pretty impressive results. For example, a study by Imperial College London found that two doses of psilocybin were more effective than a commonly prescribed medicine for treatment-resistant depression. A study by the John Hopkins University School of Medicine found that a single dose of psilocybin led to a significant reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression in cancer patients.

Another study in the Journal of Psychopharmacology showed that a single dose of psilocybin in combination with psychological support leads to long-term changes in personality, including increased openness and self-reflection.

Studies have also shown that magic mushrooms have the potential to help people with a range of other conditions, including PTSD, addiction, and OCD. So if you struggle with something like that, finding a magic mushroom dispensary and giving it a try can be worth it, but make sure you approach these substances with caution and under the guidance of a medical or therapeutic professional.

Expert Opinions

Experts in the field have spoken positively about the therapeutic potential of magic mushrooms. Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris, head of Imperial College London’s Centre for Psychedelic Research, has said that “psilocybin has the potential to be a game-changer for the treatment of depression.” Dr. Michael Pollan, author of “How to Change Your Mind,” has said that magic mushrooms have “enormous therapeutic potential.”

Dr. Roland Griffiths, a professor of psychiatry and neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, has said that “psilocybin has the potential to be one of the most important medicines of the 21st century.”

However, it’s necessary to note that while the research is promising, much more is needed before psilocybin and other psychedelics can be approved as medicine. These substances are still classified as Schedule 1 by the FDA and DEA, meaning they are considered to have a high potential for abuse and no medical value.


Recent studies have shown that magic mushrooms have the potential to be a powerful tool in the treatment of a variety of mental health conditions. Experts in the field have spoken positively about the therapeutic potential of magic mushrooms, with some suggesting that it could be a “game-changer” for the treatment of depression and other conditions.

While the research is quite promising, more studies are needed before psilocybin and other psychedelics can be officially approved as medicine. Who knows, maybe it won’t take long to come to the point when people can use psilocybin without any restrictions, but for now, you need to keep in mind that these substances are still outlawed in many places, and possession and consumption of magic mushrooms can carry legal consequences.
