This question is becoming more and more relevant everyday. With the legalization of weed in 2018 and following that cannabis edibles – it is only natural that cannabis consumers are now questioning whether or not mushrooms will be legalized in Canada. Now, not all cannabis consumers are mushroom connoisseurs but with the expanding information on mushrooms people are becoming more interested. So the real question is – is Canada ready to legalize mushrooms?
Canada and Medicinal Mushrooms: Psilocybin and psilocin
In recent news the health minister Patty Hajdu has explored the idea of using mushrooms or scientifically known as psilocybin for medicinal purposes. On August 4th, the federal government granted permission for four end of life patients to use psychedelic drugs. This comes from a long fight to help patients with end of life distress through the use of psilocybin.
This win has been considered a game changer. It changes the way people are looking at mushrooms – it is no longer just about the trip but about the medicinal benefits as well. The introduction of mushrooms or psilocybin as a medicinal option opens up the doors for so many new treatments.
Right now the access is limited to patients seeking end of life treatment – but there is work to expand this. The hope is that psilocybin will be looked at as a medicinal option for many others who could benefit from the wide variety of positive consequences.
But why stop there, We already know that Mushrooms have lots of medical benefits
When discussing the legalization of those once taboo drugs it is important to understand that this will always be positioned with medicinal benefits first. By identifying the benefits for those in very vulnerable situations – it is clear that mushrooms could benefit many. Just like its distant cousin (seriously there is no relation) cannabis – mushrooms have always been identified as a dangerous psychedelic, but as science evolves and open minds continue to dominate, there is a good chance that we could see mushrooms at our local dispensaries.
