Psilocybin is a hallucinogenic agent that can be obtained from some varieties of mushrooms found in Europe, South America, Mexico, and the United States.
What is Psilocybin (Magic Mushrooms)?
psilocybin (4-phosphoryloxy-no, N-dimethyltryptamine) and psilocin are chemical compounds found in Mexico’s, South American, southern and northwest regions in dried and fresh hallucinogenic mushrooms. The indole-alkylamine psilocybin is known as (tryptamine). They exploit these compounds for their hallucinogenic and euphoric effects to induce a “trip,” and they have a structure similar to lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). The activity on serotonin (5-HT) receptors in the central nervous system cause hallucinogenic (psychedelic) effects.
The chemicals psilocybin or psilocin are used in over 180 species of mushrooms. Hallucinogenic mushrooms, including peyote (mescaline), have been used in native or religious rituals for decades. Both psilocybin and psilocin can be synthesized in the laboratory. There have been rumours that psilocybin sold on the street are probably

Canada has been one of the few countries that allow people with depression and other mental illnesses to consume psychedelic mushrooms. The active ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms is psilocybin, which is illegal to manufacture, possess, or sell in Canada, except for licensed research purposes.
People with terminal diseases were given exemptions by Health Canada, allowing them to possess and eat mushrooms.

Psilocybin is illegal to possess, sell, or manufacture in Canada. The government is now considering making exceptions to the law under some circumstances.
Mona Strelaeff is one of those that have been granted an exception to the drug laws.

According to TheraPsil, a non-profit that campaigns for psychedelic therapy in end-of-life treatment in Canada, this opens the door for more mushroom-based therapies. TheraPsil CEO Spencer Hawks well-told VICE World News, “Our goal is to help Canadians in need access medicinal psilocybin.” “For a variety of factors, we began with palliative Canadians. The first is that you have the right to die in Canada, so you should have the right to try psilocybin as well. They didn’t have time to wait, for the second reason. We had found several Canadians who were dying and only had a few weeks or months to live. Foremost, we had to assist them.”
