Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound produced by more than 200 species of fungi, commonly known as “magic mushrooms.” When ingested, psilocybin is converted by the body into psilocin, which is responsible for its psychoactive effects. These effects can include visual and mental hallucinations, changes in perception, altered sense of time, and spiritual experiences. In recent years, psilocybin has gained attention in scientific research for its potential therapeutic benefits, particularly in treating depression, anxiety associated with life-threatening diseases, and other mental health disorders. This has led to a reevaluation of its legal status in various regions and ongoing clinical trials to assess its safety and efficacy as a therapeutic compound.
