Benefits of psilocybin mushrooms
Some fungal species contain psilocybin naturally. This is a serotonin receptor which according to different studies contain a great therapeutic potential which can help us against numerous different health conditions like for example: obsessive-compulsive disorder, serious anxiety, alcohol dependence and smoking and the results are amazing.
This serotonin receptor has also been proved to be able to treat severe depression very quickly and in an extremely safe way!
Magic mushrooms have been discovered to contain a hallucinogenic chemical which could treat depression in patients which were incurable previously. There was a research performed on 12 people at the Imperial College London. They consumed high doses of psilocybin which was banned because it caused intense psychedelic trips.
All of the volunteers were without depression only 7 days after the experiment started. 3 months later, 5 of the examinees didn’t have symptoms at all. Psilocybin can relieve depression because it disrupts the neural network and targets the receptors in the brain. They are overactive in people who have depression.
Psilocybin, which is a part of magic mushrooms, can cure depression with only one dose

Still, the scientists don’t deny that it’s the psychedelic trip which could have provoked a sort of an “awakening” that has actually eliminated depression.
Even though the results were great, people shouldn’t test these magic mushrooms without monitoring and try to cure depression.
Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris was the lead author of the study. According to him, the psychedelic drugs were chosen very carefully. The team also offered professional therapeutic support at all times.
People shouldn’t think that depression can be treated with the use of any magic mushroom. This could be very dangerous.
The patients who were a part of the research received psilocybin orally in the form of capsules. They were monitored very closely and at all times. The psilocybin acted very fast and quickly, but it was administered very carefully. All of the patients had good and valuable results.
According to Amanda Feiling, who is a part of the Beckley Foundation and was a part of this research, the depressed patients could be seen with a greater optimism and will to live and enjoy everything. After numerous years without any treatment that gave such results, this one could be the greatest success as well as revolution if the treatment of depression.
