More and more is being discovered about Magic Mushrooms and the numerous health benefits Psilocybin can offer. Many people who microdose mushrooms have noted several subtle changes in their mood, behaviors, personality and overall well-being. Let’s look at just a few.
Many users have expressed claims of feeling a certain open mindedness and enhanced compassion they hadn’t otherwise experienced previously. Mushrooms have opened the door to a more stable sense of mental health, and almost fine-tuned the way they deal with anxiety and emotional struggles. Some go so far as to say they are able to get though periods of sadness and depression they would have otherwise been hampered by. For those having a hard time connecting the dots with their own mood issues, mushrooms have proven to be the subtle nudge they needed to make sense of things.
Mushrooms can fine tune one’s personality. Mushrooms go to work on areas of the brain that control the perception of situations, can stabilize moods, and stimulate the cognitive areas of the brain. Even many with mental health issues can attest to the fact that mushrooms have helped re-shape their personalities and given them the stability to face life, and it’s many challenges. Mushrooms can provide a certain open mindedness that leads the user to feel more connected to people, places, and their surrounding environments.
While nothing can entirely replace hard work, and commitment to change, Mushrooms have given many the drive necessary to commit to drastic, healthy lifestyle changes, such as giving up smoking and drinking excessively. Mushrooms can provide a certain spark, and open mindedness that allow the user to focus on things that may have otherwise been overlooked or proven too challenging.
Mushrooms are said to improve creativity. Many artists cite the effects of mushrooms as an integral part of their own personal process. Microdosing especially seems to keep the mind focused and in synch with its creative side. This is likely due to the user feeling more relaxed and in tune after a trip.
A recent study suggested that even a single microdose of Psilocybin can result in a significant improvement of stress and anxiety in cancer patients for as long as five years. Scientific evidence dating back into the 1950s suggest that mushrooms can significantly reduce stress and can be a means to improving one’s overall wellbeing, and overall psychological health. As time goes on, more and more studies seem to agree with these findings.
Psilocybin has been found to be “As Effective” as conventional medications used today. So much has yet to be learned about the correlation between depression and magic mushrooms being used to treat depression, but early indicators are promising. Psilocybin is thought to work on the brains stress system, meaning it may be able to dull someone to the stress indicators the brain is sending out. The possibilities for microdosing therapy to become a regular treatment ordered by a physician is likely on the horizon.

The Future of Microdosing
The Netherlands currently allows the over-the-counter sale of Psilocybin in the form of truffles. Some in the industry say Canada is up next, likely within three years though the pandemic put the brakes on things moving forward for the moment. The USA would not be far behind. Look for more and more individual states to decriminalize Psilocybin before it is eventually approved nationwide.
