All Roads Lead To Magical Mushrooms
In an all new episode, he explores magical mushrooms with the help of shamans, clandestine growers, and ethnomycologists. He travels everywhere from the aztec empire to an underground laboratory on his quest to learn more about this mystical drug.
Psilocybin mushrooms; commonly known as magical mushrooms, mushrooms, are a polyphyletic informal group of fungi that contain psilocybin which turns into psilocin upon ingestion. Biological genera containing psilocybin mushrooms include Copelandia, Gymnopilus, Inocybe, Panaeolus, Pholiotina, Pluteus, and Psilocybe.
Psilocybin mushrooms have been and continue to be used in indigenous New World cultures in religious, divinatory, or spiritual contexts. Psilocybin mushrooms are also used as recreational drugs. They may be depicted in Stone Age rock art in Africa and Europe, but are most famously represented in the Pre-Columbian sculptures and glyphs seen throughout North, Central and South America.
