 Psilocybin Mushrooms.

What exactly are Psilocybin mushrooms?

Psilocybin mushrooms are mushrooms that contain the psychotropic compound Psilocybin. These mushrooms are categorized in whats known by biologists as the 'Psilocybe Genus'. There are over 200 mushroom species in this genus, and each possesses significant differences in potency, visual appearance, & growing requirements.

 

By far the most well-researched, commonly-found, and easy-to-cultivate species is Psilocybe Cubensis. Almost any Psilocybin mushrooms that you can purchase online are Psilocybe Cubensis, and all of the mushrooms available on Blue Goba are Psilocybe Cubensis.

 

It's not clear why mushrooms of the Psilocybe Genus evolved to produce psilocybin -- a psychoactive compound which is able to bind with human serotonin receptors (specifically the 5HT2a receptor), and cause several psychotropic effects including visual hallucination, euphoria, feelings of love and connectedness, introspection/revelation, and even out of body experiences.

Most of these aforementioned effects lend themselves well to recreational use of these so called "Magic Mushrooms" however there is robust evidence to support the fact that psilocybin has immense potential for use as a treatment of a host of mental health conditions, neurodegenerative disorders, and chronic pain disorders.  

Although literature regarding the medical and therapeutic benefits of Psilocybin dates back to the late 1960's, it has only been in the past few years that interest has risen exponentially. In 2021 there are several Publicly traded companies who hold licenses to produce and research Psilocybin mushrooms, and we at Blue Goba feel that legalization, or at least decriminalization is near.
