There are many misconceptions about magic mushrooms and they are often treated as a recreational drug. However, there is a lot of potential for them to be used in the medical field.
However, we should not think of them as a replacement for all other drugs and treatments yet because they don’t work for everyone.
With this caveat, there are some promising studies and research that show positive outcomes for users of psychedelic mushrooms.
Here are some recent articles in the news about promising research with psychedelics.
“The scientific evidence that psilocybin can help people kick bad habits and addictions is compelling. Two studies by Johns Hopkins University found that just two full doses of psilocybin (that is, enough of a dose to produce the full-blown psychedelic effects of a trip) administered on separate occasions under close observation in a lab were enough to help both smokers and people with alcohol dependency to overcome their addictions. Out of 343 people involved in the latter study, 83% no longer met the criteria for alcohol dependency after taking part. ”
“If we think about how psilocybin therapy (if approved) may be delivered in the future, it’s important to demonstrate the feasibility and the safety of giving it to more than one person at the same time, so we can think about how we scale up the treatment.”
Dr Rucker, who is also an honorary consultant psychiatrist at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust added, “This therapy has promise for people living with serious mental health problems, like treatment-resistant depression (TRD) and PTSD.
Some stocks to look into of companies planning to produce psylocybin medicine for those of you who want to capitalize on this trend as an investment.
Having seen the life-changing benefits psilocybin therapy can bring, I hope UK patients will soon be able to access it safely and legally
The use of magic mushrooms for medical treatment is not new. It has been used for over a thousand years in the past by native cultures but the use of these drugs in the mainstream has been on the rise in recent times, especially due to the good news about its benefits. With researchers and medical companies delving further into psilocybin as treatments for common ailments, the future looks bright for these little fungi derivatives.
