Psilocybin – Self-Awareness and Psychotropic Breakthroughs
Shrooms can expand your imagination and improve your creativity up to a week or more after consumption, according to the latest research. The trippy truffles also improve empathy and relieve symptoms of anxiety, PTSD and acute anguish.
New research in The Journal of Psychoactive Drugs (yep, that’s for real!) has found that certain compounds in magic mushrooms can improve your creativity for days after you take it. Scientists have been looking into the effects of psychedelics like psilocybin and other fungal hallucinogens to see whether they offer therapeutic relief for mental health issues and existential unease. Recent evidence suggests that shrooms are super-duper constructive for your mind, body and spirit. Watch this.
Natasha Mason, author of a new paper on this topic from Maastricht University, told the neuroscience publication Psypost about the latest, utterly exciting findings: “In the last decade, there has been a renewed scientific interest in the utility of psychedelics. Increasing evidence suggests that psychedelics like psilocybin may have potential therapeutic value for disorders like anxiety, depression, and PTSD.”
Users in Holland drank tea infused with magic mushrooms and were monitored for eight days straight. Researchers studied their psychometrics and vitals days before and after the subjects consumed the mind-altering mush and found a common thread: the trippers became quantitatively and qualitatively more empathetic, mentally perky, emotionally upbeat and even more creative. “I had many Eureka moments,” said one subject. “I was able to conjure countless mental adjacencies and new modalities of thought.” Others described their experience in terms of having “heightened creativity” and “cognitive resurrections.” Whoa.
There is widespread interest in legalizing shrooms in order to mitigate episodes of depression, PTSD and myriad other mental health disorders. In Oregon and Colorado, for instance, voters will have the chance to decriminalize the production, distribution and consumption of magic mushrooms and other psychotropic substances in a referendum soon.
It comes in the wake of the Global Drug Survey’s declaration that shrooms are amongst the safest drug, saying the euphoric-inducing toadstool could be many magnitudes safer than LSD, cocaine, or MDMA. Advances in psychopharmacology is confirming the the medicinal virtues of doping with shrooms and its derivative ingredients.
This week the US approved a ketamine-like nasal spray to soothe those suffering from clinical depression, acute anxiety and suicidal ideation. Anecdotal reports suggest that it has already saved countless lives and soothed many souls. Breakthrough progress indeed.
Magic mushrooms are a magnificent and arguably ‘entheogenic’ (“the god within”) medicinal fillip that allows us to reprogram our mind and curate our consciousness in cathartic and constructive ways. As Terence McKenna once said, “in order to use your head, you have to first go out of your mind.” WE LOVE DRUGS ♡ !
