Th forest is coming alive and I can sense the mushrooms growing - soon they'll end up in our frying pan! I've already made fresh RAMP butter -oh my, so tasty I'm sure I can pick a few more leaves for another batch this season. Gifts from the earth are some of the greatest.
Food & medicine - nature soothes the soul in countless ways.
I've been reading much about psilocybin mushrooms & ALL the positive information regarding how they ARE helping many & I know it's only a matter of time before Canada (hopefully) decriminalizes or legalizes (probably, as more money can be made) and once again, as I did with cannabis. I am excited, I understand the potential to help others. & from experience know they have helped me. Covid had created a new degree of depression & stresses and more need help. I watched a sleep special on Netflix and the numbers it gave for people that need sleeping pills (a multi$$$$$$industry) are staggering & they don't help long term but they do create addiction. Magic Mushrooms are also not addictive. Haven't we all learned by now - pills in particular, especially opiates kill. Provide people ill a safer option to heal & help.
Popular Science actually says Psilocybin are the safest drug - from my understanding the only time anyone is ill (or death) is as with normal mushrooms -they mistake a psilocybin for another 'look alike' that is harmful. So, again - don't eat anything wild, unless YOU KNOW what it is. Once again education is the key! I predict as soon as later this year - mushrooms psilocybin will be available for all (should they choose). I also have read & believe they help with alcohol addiction. I now from experience, after having psilocybin earlier in the day- the thought of a glass of wine makes me want to vomit.
No hangovers from psilocybin too- as a matter of fact- I laws feel TERRIFIC the next day- a fresh mental boost to keep me focused.
I want to inform Trigeminal Neuralgia sufferers in particular - I do get some relief, mushrooms make me - not notice as much or not let it overwhelm me, as much. We can't thrive or even function, if we are not feeling well. I feel less depressed when I take my medicine... the trick is remembering to medicate.
Like this flower - we are all souls blossoming in nature... bloom where you are planted & do what you need to do to feel healthy. The only crime being committed, is being forced to take medicine that kills us because of politics.
Gods medicine - here since the beginning of time to help, research it.
