Microdose Mushrooms Canada

The recent popularity of Microdose Mushrooms Canada with psychedelic substances, such as LSD, dimethyltryptamine (DMT) ingested with a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) as in the Amazonian concoction known as ayahuasca, and psilocybin found in mushrooms of the Psilocybe genus, is partly due to extensive news coverage and active online communities, and also because some research reports positive benefits to mental wellbeing and cognitive performance from these lower doses. This research, however, is minimal compared to the much larger body of evidence on higher doses of these same drugs.

The use of psychedelic plants and mushrooms for purposes other than ritual religious experiences, at low doses, has long been part of human culture. Anthropological reports indicate that many traditional societies used peyote, morning glory seeds and psilocybin-containing mushrooms for their ability to change consciousness and for their therapeutic effects in daily life: for example, as an aphrodisiac, to reduce hunger, inspire courage or nullify pain, and to help overcome anxiety.

Microdosing Magic: Navigating the World of Microdose Mushrooms in Canada

The production, sale and possession of magic mushrooms and psilocybin are illegal in Canada without a licence, exemption or authorization from Health Canada. In this study, we conducted a double-blind placebo-controlled experimental trial with a small dose of dried psilocybin mushroom to examine its acute and short-term effects on mood, creativity (divergent and convergent thinking), perception, and cognition. Results showed that the 0.5 g dose of psilocybin mushroom significantly reduced power in the theta range (4-8 Hz) in comparison to placebo while preserving Lempel-Ziv broadband signal complexity (an indicator of neural complexity). These results are consistent with the hypothesis that psilocybin can enhance cognitive performance by increasing the availability of information to the brain and by slowing down the pace of thought.
