Magic Mushrooms and the Healing Trip

The way in which we commonly perceive so-called magic mushrooms—as the means to youthful psychedelic adventure—is undergoing a radical transformation. As Michael Pollan reports in this week’s issue of the magazine, doctors at major medical institutions have been using the hallucinogen psilocybin, the mushrooms’ active ingredient, to treat anxiety and “existential distress” in cancer patients. Eddie Marritz, a cinematographer and photographer in remission from small-cell carcinoma, participated in one of New York University’s research studies in late 2013, and continues to feel the benefits of the treatment. Marritz, who had gone into remission before deciding to enroll in the study, takes us through his trip.

Amir Pouya
I'm the Founder, Designer and Developer of SpiritMolecule.com. I have a love and interest for the history and chemistry of visionary plants and their interaction with humankind. I believe these plants and their effects to not be Hallucinations, but another form of reality we are yet to fully understand. The reason for this website is to gather as much information as possible to eventually be able to put together some sort of explanation as to What these plants are, Why they exists and How they have these extraordinary effects on Human Consciousness.
