We are not suggesting or recommending the use of psilocybin or any other psychedelic drug medicinally or recreationally to our readers.

We are providing harm reduction information for those individuals that are already self-medicating with mushrooms containing psilocybin despite legal implications, as well as bringing attention to the use of psilocybin being further researched and introduced in a clinical setting as an alternative to pharmaceutical medication.
