Hey, what's up folks? I am here to talk about one of the most controversial and exciting topics out there - magic mushrooms. Now, I know a lot of you out there are interested in trying them out, but the biggest challenge comes when you try to buy them. That's because most countries have made them illegal and marked them as controlled substances.

For instance, some states in the United States consider magic mushrooms as a Schedule I drug. That means the state governments define it as a psychedelic drug that has not been accepted for medical use and has a relatively higher potential for abuse. But guess what? Denver and other cities are taking various measures to legalize magic mushrooms. That's right, folks - the times are finally changing. For Canada, provinces like BC, Ontario, Alberta, Quebec, and Nova Scotia, we are seeing both online & offline shroom dispensaries opening up. 

Now, it's important to mention that every state or country is different. Some nations like the Netherlands, Brazil, and Jamaica have legalized magic mushrooms. Other countries like Japan, Australia, and the United Kingdom have stringent regulations that illegalize the use of magic mushrooms. So, if you're thinking of trying them out, you gotta know the relevant laws and regulations depending on your location.

Legality of purchasing mushrooms

Things get a little tricky in the US because even though psilocybin mushrooms are listed as Schedule I drugs by the Federal Government, some States have already decriminalized them. Now, note that decriminalizing substance use in this context means that the state chooses not to spend resources to enforce the penalties for using the product. It doesn't mean you can abuse it. So, it's important to be responsible and use these substances wisely.

Now that you know whether or not magic mushrooms are legal, it's up to you to figure out how to get your hands on them. Here are a few options you may want to consider.

Where to buy them online

First off, one of the safest and most discrete option is that you can easily buy shrooms online whenever you need them. This is probably the easiest and safest way to acquire these products if they are illegal where you live. The only downside is that you may find only certain species usually available in their psilocybe cubensis form, even when there are over 180 species of psilocybin mushrooms out there.

One exciting thing about psilocybe cubensis is that it can be broken down into more than 40 different strains depending on the geographical location where it was discovered. Some people can also mix different strains to form a new strain of psilocybe cubensis. So, if you choose to get magic mushrooms online, here are a few top options you can choose from.

Growing Magic Mushrooms

You can get a growth kit that includes a box with a substrate that has been fully inoculated with psilocybin mushroom mycelium. This option requires you to expose mycelium to air, water, and light, and it will begin to fruit and produce your desired mushrooms within a week. But be warned - this option may be challenging to acquire depending on your location. That's because more than 80% of countries have made it a controlled or illegal substance, which means they will not allow you to import the kit. But could there be a way around this?

3 ways to get magic mushrooms

Option one is online dispensarys. Even if you try to ship it to your location, there's a good chance it will get seized at the custom long before you get it. So, it's essential to analyze a specific seller's shipping methods to ensure that the product can be sent to your location without being seized. In most places where mushrooms are illegal, it's challenging to find an offline seller. So, online may be your only option.

Option two is the spore print. This is where you cut off the top cap of a mushroom and place it gill-side down onto fertile soil. After 24 hours, you'll see that it leaves behind lots of little spores. You can scrape these into distilled water and add them to a syringe, which you can then inject into your substrate. This is the cheapest option, and the spore print can be stored for up to two years in a fridge.

Option three is to buy a vial or spore syringe that's already mixed with distilled water. This is a great option for some species that aren't available as a spore print.

If you don't wanna buy them online, you can always try to find them in the wild. But be careful, picking the wrong mushroom can land you in the hospital. It's important to learn about the specific features of the mushrooms you're looking for before you head out to the forest. But let's be real, it's much safer and easier to just buy them from a reputable seller.

So, there you have it, folks. Getting your hands on magic mushrooms might be a bit of a challenge, but with a little bit of research, you can find them for your needs!

Benefits of mushrooms (List of studies in references below)

Psilocybin is the primary psychoactive compound found in magic mushrooms and has shown potential benefits in the treatment of various mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, and addiction. Studies have found that psilocybin can lead to significant reductions in symptoms of depression and anxiety in individuals with treatment-resistant depression and cancer-related psychological distress (Grob et al., 2011; Ross et al., 2016).

In addition to mental health benefits, psilocybin has also been found to have anti-inflammatory properties and may have the potential to boost the immune system (de Faria et al., 2021). Furthermore, users have reported enhanced creativity and problem-solving abilities after taking magic mushrooms (Studerus et al., 2011).

It is important to approach psilocybin with respect and caution as it can have powerful effects on the mind and body. Psilocybin use should only be conducted in a safe and comfortable environment and under the guidance of a trained professional. Despite the potential benefits of psilocybin, it is not suitable for everyone and may have adverse effects on individuals with a history of mental illness or certain medical conditions.

In conclusion, psilocybin has a long history of use in various cultures and traditions, and modern research is beginning to confirm its potential benefits. If interested in exploring the benefits of psilocybin, it is important to do research and approach it with caution and respect.
