Psilocybe cubensis is a type of psychedelic mushroom that contains the psychoactive compound psilocybin. Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound that is produced by more than 200 species of fungi, including Psilocybe cubensis.
How does Psilocin Work in the Brain?
According to a new study, psilocybe cubensis dried by scientists at UC San Francisco and Imperial College London, psilocybin promotes more significant connections between different brain regions in depressed people, freeing them from long-standing rumination patterns and excessive self-concentration.
Psilocybe cubensis is a popular choice for those looking to experience the psychedelic effects of psilocybin. The mushrooms are relatively easy to grow and can be found fresh or dried in many online and brick-and-mortar stores. These effects can include changes in visual and auditory perceptions, feelings of euphoria and altered states of consciousness. Psilocybin can also cause adverse effects, such as anxiety, paranoia and nausea.
