A Self-Awakening

A more natural way of thinking?

Throughout our lives, we develop fears, blockages, or negative feelings that disrupt our normal functioning due to a lack of perspective. The result is a sensation that life lacks meaning, or rumination, or even self-deprecation.

American and British medical research has shown an interesting effect of psilocybin on these states. The magic mushroom targets a brain area associated with fear, the amygdala. Moreover, it triggers chemical reactions related to serotonin.

Mental Health Outcomes

Without fear, it is easier and more effective to explore one’s subconscious and wounds. Thoughts navigate toward new horizons, offering a fresh perspective.

For this reason, psilocybin has shown encouraging results in the fight against depression, PTSD, and anxiety. Clinical trials, for example, have concluded that it can be as effective as antidepressants in just one dose.

A ritual from ancient times

Long before Oregon psilocybin retreats were invented, humans were already using psilocybes mushrooms to explore altered states of consciousness. Thus, pre-Columbian civilizations, Maya and Aztec, practiced mystical or magical rituals related to the use of fungi.

The contents of these ancient rituals are unknown. But around the world (Mexico, Hungary, Algeria), archaeological traces show that shamans have been practicing natural psychedelic medicines for nearly 9,000 years.

FAQ about psilocybin in the USA

Why is psilocybin legal in Oregon?

Initially, psilocybin became legal for therapeutic purposes in Oregon in November 2020. It was Measure 109 that allowed the regulated use of psilocybin. The law requires authorization for treatment centers that oversee this process.

In what forms can psilocybin be consumed in the state of Oregon?

The law permits several psilocybin-containing products: capsules or pills, liquid extracts, and dried mushrooms.

In retreats, this latter form is offered, both pure and traditional. The program there is structured to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the psychedelic mushrooms, following strict protocols.

Is psilocybin legal in California?

Apart from in Oregon and Colorado, the sensory molecule has been considered a controlled substance in the rest of the USA since the 1960s. California has seen several reform attempts regarding psilocybin. The main proposals were about its decriminalization. No law has been passed to legalize or regulate its use statewide.

However, some Californian cities, like Oakland and Santa Cruz, have taken steps to decriminalize the use of natural psychedelic substances. Yet, these cities do not offer legal support.

Is psilocybin legal in Colorado?

In Colorado, the situation has advanced significantly. In November 2022, Colorado approved an electoral initiative (Proposition 122) to decriminalize and create a regulated program allowing the therapeutic use of psilocybin.

What is the effect of psilocybin on depression?

Psilocybin impacts neural networks. Like antidepressants, it targets the 5-HT2A serotonin receptors. Activating this receptor triggers a chain reaction affecting mood, perception, or cognition.

Research also suggests that psilocybin increases brain plasticity. For those with depression, this gives neurons the ability to change and adapt, breaking away from negative thought patterns. Furthermore, psychedelic experiences can also provide profound psychological insights. Realizations.

Beyond these points, residents from any state in the US can participate in the retreats in Oregon.

What are psychedelic substances?

Psychedelic substances are chemical compounds. They have mind altering short-term effects on perception, thoughts, and sensations. They include LSD, psilocybin, mescaline, and DMT (found in ayahuasca). These substances can induce a profound psychedelic experience. They sometimes transform consciousness or provide significant spiritual or introspective insights. Historically used in spiritual rituals, they have also been used recreationally. Today, they are being studied for their potential medical-use. MDMA is also being studied for its long-term effects on PTSD, but it is not considered a psychedelic.
