Psychedelic Mushrooms in Vancouver

If you’re a shrooms in vancouver , chances are you’ve heard of the new, mind-awakening craze that’s been taking over our fair city. Although cannabis has captured the public’s attention, psilocybin magic mushrooms have been making quite the impression lately. With a growing body of clinical research demonstrating their effectiveness in treating mood disorders, psychedelics have been on the minds of many.

Mushrooms contain the psychoactive compound psilocybin, and have been used for millennia in religious and spiritual ceremonies. They have been known to provide a mystical experience, with altered perceptions and feelings of connectedness. Some people report feeling euphoria, while others feel relaxed or even calm. Psychedelic experiences vary from person to person, and are dependent on the dosage and how mushrooms are consumed.

The psilocybin in these “magic mushrooms” is considered a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, and is therefore illegal to possess without a permit. However, the fear of prosecution has not deterred several dispensaries in the city from opening up to walk-in customers looking to purchase psilocybin mushrooms.

One of these stores is the Medicinal Mushroom Dispensary and Coco Leaf Cafe, run by Dana Larsen. A prolific organizer in the cannabis legalization movement, he hopes to spur the same kind of change with psychedelics as he did with marijuana.

Another is the brightly-coloured Zoomers in the Granville entertainment district, which carries grow-it-yourself mushroom kits along with dried and chocolate edibles. The Yaletown-based Bud Lab, with its Apple Store-like aesthetics, has a more medicinal approach to shrooms and is staffed by in-house nurses. The company also carries products designed to help you microdose psilocybin for therapeutic effects.
