Psilocybin is becoming the new cannabis as psychedelic mushrooms a.k.a. magic mushrooms find themselves in therapeutic use. What began as a ritual embibement thousands of years ago, could help doctors treat the human mind non-intrusively with an unheard of efficacy. The chemistry behind these little buttons of laughter could disrupt the treatment of conditions such as depression and anxiety as well as substance abuse.

Tripping balls for the thrill of it remains on the agenda so recreational psychedelics may also be in the cards while regulators come to grips with changing world opinion and an already burgeoning industry.
