But what is ‘magic’ about them? Mushrooms which contain the compound psilocybin are classed as ‘magic’. This is due to the effects psilocybin has on the brain. Magic mushrooms, are not legal in the United Kingdom. This has been the case since psilocybin and psilocin, were classified as Class A drugs under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. This means you will find yourself on the wrong side of the law if found in possession of any products containing psilocybin are illegal.

Mushrooms have also been used throughout history in different cultures such as indigenous people, who’ve used it magic mushrooms in shamanic ceremonies. It is also believed that some African societies have used magic mushrooms as medicine.

There has been some discussion recently of the potential therapeutic properties. Some research has been conducted as to the effect of psilocybin on anxiety in adolescents.

Whilst research is still being conducted, and under UK Law, they are still illegal, it is probably best to stay away from Magic Mushrooms. However, the extracts we use are magic too- just without the psilocybin! Most other companies use the full mushroom as opposed to extract, this means that it is likely not enough of the active compound being used in the capsule, thus the customer not getting desired effect.
