Magic Mushroom

  • By Blair

    Magic truffles/shrooms can now be used for cancer patients to help them relax and less distressed about their disease? I have read some articles from that psilocybin which is a major component of magic truffles can help ease anxiety and depression and on some circumstances open your creativity. So what is magic truffles anyway? Is it legal? Well the drug is clearly not for everyone, but further studies are on-going for it’s medical purpose. I would really want to hear your stand regarding magic truffles. Thanks

    Hi Blair! This is an interesting question. While members of our community are quite open to more natural or holistic treatments choices, we always suggest that people make sure they are using safe, proven methods of treatment and run any treatment changes by their physician before proceeding. As with medical marijuana, knowing exactly what you are getting is vitally important to your safety. I would be leery of buying any unregulated product off the internet. And while truffles and mushrooms are quite delicious, again, I would only buy from a reputable source.

    I don’t know anything about these “magic truffles”, although I have heard that some types of mushrooms can have a hallucinogenic affect. These mushrooms are not considered safe for general public consumption and I don’t see how hallucinogens of any sort would really help with RA symptoms.

    On another note, mushrooms of the more standard variety are considered a great anti-inflammatory food. You can read more about mushrooms and other anti-inflammatory foods here —

    I hope this information helps and that you get additional feedback from our community members.

    Thanks for reaching out!
