WHAT IS PSILOCYBIN?
Made by Nature
Psilocybin, one of the safest drugs you can take, is a molecule capable of effectively treating mental illness ranging from post-traumatic stress disorder, addiction, and end of life anxiety for an estimated 100 million of Americans.
Psilocybin occurs naturally in over 150 species of mushrooms world-wide.
Yet, the DEA listed this compound as a schedule I drug under the Controlled Substance Act in the late 1960's. This scheduling is usually reserved for drugs that have no recognized therapeutic value. The DEA maintains this classification despite an increase in research that suggests psilocybin is safe and effective.
Research continues to be published about this compound and communities are beginning to create common sense psilocybin laws in their communities.
PSILOCYBIN IS SIMILAR TO SEROTONIN
Psilocybin activates multiple serotonin receptors and evidence suggests that activation of these receptors produces the therapeutic effects of the compound.
Psilocyin, a derivative of psilocybin that is created after human ingestion, binds to 5-HT2A. Serotonin and many antidepressants also bind to this receptor.
