Magic Mushrooms Health Benefits on NewsFeed - When I’m on shrooms I like to stare at plants and pretend to talk to them, but this isn’t about me. Magic Mushrooms may not just be for college students traveling Europe or hippies anymore they might actually have medical benefits. Hooray! Researchers at John Hopkins University School of Medicine have been looking into the effects of psilocybin, which is basically the stuff in shrooms that makes you really understand life. They have figured the perfect amount to give patients so that they have mystical and spiritual experiences that offer long-lasting life changing benefits with very little risk of negative reactions. The study is new and would be further developed, except everyone is on shrooms. Thanks science.
