Medicinal Mushroom

Fri, January 12, 2018 7:43 AM

I just want to ask if some of you has heard this kind of shroom called Psilocybe Cubensis? I was reading some articles about this kind shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. Like this one from .They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike other shrooms this one is less intense. In one article that I've read Psilocybe Caerulipes influences the prefontral cortex thats responsible for for differentiating thoughts, consequences of actions, and social control. Magic mushroom are use on reducing the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this kind shroom and could possible be used as an alternative medicine Thanks

Taking psychedelics to cure IBD is a long shot, but I appreciate your open mindedness haha. I take Kratom in small doses, and with my own experience it helps soothe the upset/painful stomach area, as well as an anti-diarrheal. They have a lottt of differnt forums out there regarding kratom for UC/Chrohns.. check it out if interested...
