Magic mushrooms show promise in depression treatment, study finds

A new study has found that an ingredient in magic mushrooms can help treating depression. It said two doses of the ingredient –psilocybin – appears to be as effective as the antidepressant escitalopram. However, Dr Robin Carhart-Harris, head of the Centre for Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London and a co-author of the study, warned against seeking magic mushrooms for self-treatment.

I “micro dosed” magic mushrooms for about a month. Took anywhere from .7g-1g a day. Most productive and disciplined I had been in my entire life.

If natural drugs were actually researched 50 yrs ago, we wouldn't have opiate abuse and addiction problems.

But that would mean pharmaceutical companies would have to stop making money on their take-daily “cures”.
