Psilocybin Mushrooms as Medicine

Psychedelic plants have been used by humans for thousands of years for their entheogenic properties. Entheogens are defined as “psychoactive substances that induce alterations in perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, or behavior for the purposes of engendering spiritual development or otherwise in sacred contexts”.1 Entheogens from the Fungi Kingdom, i.e. magic mushroom spores, are the most common naturally occurring psychedelic used for many centuries by our ancestors in religious and spiritual ceremonies to access cosmic, or divine, consciousness and for healing. Most recently, psilocybin derived from the psilocybin cubensis and other psychedelic mushroom species have been researched in prestigious academic medical centers such as Johns Hopkins and proven effective in treating severe mental health conditions such as addiction disorders, major depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and other psychological and psychiatric conditions. While this effective form of therapy for common disabling psychological conditions is limited to a few areas of the country currently, decriminalization of psilocybin is occurring across the US and within the next few years medicinal psychedelic mushroom products will become more widely available.
