Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound found in certain species of mushrooms, also known as “magic mushrooms” or “shrooms.” When consumed, psilocybin is metabolized in the body to produce psilocin, which is responsible for the compound’s psychoactive effects. Psilocybin has been used for thousands of years in spiritual and religious practices, and more recently has gained attention as a potential therapeutic tool for treating a range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and addiction.
