Can Magic Mushrooms Help Cancer Patients

Cancer patients often struggle with anxiety and depression.But researchers seem to have found a medicine to deal with those symptoms. Magic Mushrooms.(show hippy) I know Larry, you’ve been saying that for years, I get it.According to a study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, a single dose of psilocybin— that’s the active ingredient in shrooms — can lift the anxiety and depression for six months or even longer.Volunteers had QUOTE “profoundly meaningful and spiritual experiences.” The study says many patients were able to rethink their despair about life and death, leading to improvement in the quality of their lives.The Guardian says psychiatrists were excited about the impacts of mushrooms in the 50s before the government classified mushrooms as a schedule 1 drug in response to the counterculture movement.According to Dr Stephen Ross it’s “a big deal both in terms of the findings and in terms of the history and what it represents. It was part of psychiatry and vanished and now it’s been brought back,”Or as Jerry Garcia would say, “what a long strange trip it’s been.”Sorry I had to.
