Magic mushrooms or psilocybin has recently become a very popular alternative treatment for mental health illnesses such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and drug addiction. The psychoactive properties in psilocybin alter one’s reality, which opens the mind up for self-discovery and spiritual awakening.
Magic mushrooms can be purchased online in Canada, just like cannabis products. Magic mushrooms come in many different forms for users looking to microdose or experienced users looking for an intense psychedelic experience.
Terra Cannabis offers 1g, 3.5g, 14g, and 28g mushrooms to purchase online. Browse our online store for high-quality mushrooms and have them delivered directly to your door.
Benefits of Taking Magic Mushrooms
Magic mushrooms have been used for thousands of years for both spiritual and health benefits. The low toxicity level makes this drug very safe, with only the possibility of having a “bad trip.” Here are some of the top three benefits of taking psilocybin:
Taking psilocybin, even at low doses, can connect neural pathways in the brain in new ways. This opens the user’s brain to new ideas and an increase in creativity. Psychedelics are used to free the conscious mind for the ego, which in the right context can be very beneficial in creative pursuits.
Many artists and musicians have taken psychedelics for inspiration because while tripping, their minds perceive the world differently.
Reduce Anxiety and Depression
Psilocybin connects to serotonin receptors in the brain, which controls mood, memory, cognition, and many other physiological processes. Unlike prescription drugs, magic mushrooms allow the brain to naturally work through anxiety and depression.
The two benefits listed above can be attributed to a new sense of mindfulness that occurrs after taking magic mushrooms. Being mindful means being aware of oneself, which can only be achieved when the ego is suppressed. Having a mindful outlook is the key to a fulfilling life because you will have a better understanding of yourself, your surroundings, and your relationships.
What is Microdosing Magic Mushrooms?
A full-on psychedelic experience might not be for everyone, so taking a small amount of psilocybin has become a popular way to reap the benefits without the trip. People often microdose psilocybin to increase focus, creativity, and one’s mental state.
The typical amount taken to trip is 3.5g and a microdose is roughly 1/10th of that. At Terra, we have psilocybe tablets that are carefully dosed for a microdosing session. For more information on the benefits of microdosing, check out our recent post that breaks down the latest health phenomenon.
How to Safely Take Magic Mushrooms
Now that you have purchased your magic mushrooms, it is important to plan out your trip to prevent any bad experiences. Please remember that psilocybin is a powerful substance that affects everyone differently. Magic mushrooms may not be right for you if you suffer from any psychotic disorders such as bipolar or schizophrenia, as a psychedelic experience could trigger them.
Here are some beneficial tips to keep in mind while planning out your psychedelic experience.
Set and Setting
Set and setting are some of the best tips for any psychedelic experience. Set and setting refer to any internal and external factors that could influence your experience. Set is the mental state that you are currently in before you take psilocybin. The setting is the external factors, including location, people around you, the music played, weather, etc.
It is best to enjoy psilocybin in a place where you can take in your surroundings, such as the beach, the mountains, or the comfort of your backyard. Music will also be very enhanced, so having your favorite music playing can significantly enhance your experience and deepen your appreciation for that music.
These factors play into how you will experience your trip, so it’s important to keep all of these in mind when planning your psychedelic experience.
Have a Trip Sitter
A trip sitter is someone sober that stays with you for the trip’s duration to ensure everyone is safe and having a great time. Magic mushrooms will not make you act uncontrollably, but having a trusted friend there will keep your mind at ease if you become overwhelmed with thoughts and emotions.
Magic mushrooms have been around for thousands of years for its spiritual and health benefits. The increased creativity and reduced anxiety and depression can be attributed to the sense of mindfulness that the magic mushrooms bring.
That is why set and setting are important factors for an enjoyable experience. If you take psychedelic mushrooms in a safe place with trusted friends, you’re sure to have an experience like no other.
Microdosing magic mushrooms is also a highly popular alternative medicine practice that naturally allows the brain to understand new ways of thinking without the psychedelic effects.
Within the past few years, magic mushrooms have become more a part of mainstream society as a safe way to become in touch with oneself. Purchasing mushrooms in Canada has become very easy through online dispensaries that deliver right to your door. Check out our products here!
