Hi Rodney,

It’s kind of strange that you would ask here of all places, as this is an observation of a non-hallucinogenic mushroom, but I do know of quite a few studies on the medicinal effects of psilocybin mushrooms.

Micro doses, small amounts that won’t make you trip, have been found to give relief to sufferers of cluster headaches.


Johns Hopkins has reported quite a bit of success treating anxiety in cancer patients with psilocybin:


And they have also reported positive psychological changes in healthy people who were administered the drug:


There are a few links to get you started. Good luck with your research!

Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. Like this one from:https://www.trufflemagic.com/... .They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I’ve read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder and anxiety. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks
