Micro Dose Mushrooms For Mental Health and Substance Use Challenges

The Canadian micro dose mushrooms canada is investing in a series of randomized clinical trials to determine the safety and efficacy of psilocybin (the active ingredient found in magic mushrooms) in combination with psychotherapy for treating mental health and substance use challenges. This is in line with the government’s commitment to advancing drug policy that is compassionate and evidence-based.

Psychedelics are known for their powerful effects on consciousness, from ego dissolution to feelings of connectedness with the universe. Using them to treat mental health issues is gaining popularity, but the evidence is still thin. CBC’s Nick Purdon hears from people who swear it works and researchers trying to find out if it does.

The Microdosing Movement: Mushrooms in Canada

As more and more people turn to psychedelics for help, the demand has grown for low-dose products such as magic mushrooms. They are easy to find in back alleys, and online stores selling psilocybin for microdosing have popped up across the country. But the cultivation, sale and possession of magic mushrooms are illegal in Canada, and police have raided a number of these retailers in recent years.

At a store in downtown Toronto called Mush Luv, Bezo West sells the illegal drugs to people who say they want to microdose. He says he knows what they are doing is dangerous, but customers don’t seem to care. They come to his store because they have been told by doctors that the drugs might improve their mood and help them with mental illness, he says.
