LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — September 20 is Magic Mushroom Day and this year, communities across the world are celebrating the psychedelic renaissance. As research, clinical trials and financial support grow in the medical field, State governments, and among those with mental, emotional wellness ailments, the interest in information surrounding psychedelics as medicine and connection to practitioners who can offer treatment is at an all time high. Psychable is meeting this need for information and access to practitioners through its platform, the #1 most trusted and comprehensive online community dedicated to connecting those interested in legally exploring psychedelic-assisted therapy with practitioners in the space.
Psilocybin mushrooms – “magic mushrooms” – grow naturally on every continent except Antarctica. They are the primary source of psilocybin, a psychoactive compound known for its transformative and therapeutic potentials. In 2019, the FDA granted psilocybin breakthrough therapy status for the treatment of depression.
Today, while legal mushroom therapy for depression occurs only in clinical trials, this declaration from the FDA is the latest advancement in discussions surrounding the use of psychedelics as medicine and psychedelic-assisted therapy.
Psychedelic-assisted therapy is the use of psychedelics for healing purposes, often taking the form of a psychedelic being administered under the supervision of a therapist. Recent studies have shown psychedelic-assisted therapy can have long-lasting, fast-acting and impactful results when it comes to treating those suffering with depression, trauma and addiction. When administered under the supervision of or with the aftercare of a therapist, evidence shows that substances such as ketamine, MDMA and psilocybin are successful at reducing fear and defensiveness, enhancing introspection and breaking traumatic thought patterns to provide rapid and lasting relief.
Psychable is committed to connecting those interested in legally exploring psychedelic-assisted therapy as treatment for an ailment or as part of their holistic health journeys with practitioners in the space. Candidates looking for treatment and practitioners will find support for every stage of the psychedelic journey through the Psychable community at www.Psychable.com.
“This year’s Magic Mushroom Day, we’re passionate about changing the narrative that “magic mushrooms’” only purpose is to be a recreational drug for hippies. The reality is that research shows a high-likelihood that psilocybin is a powerful treatment option for those with varying mental illness issues including anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance abuse, and more. With recent decriminalization efforts in States across the country, and that number set to increase as legislation moves through the State level, we are hopeful that by next year’s Magic Mushroom Day, we will be celebrating the ability to expand Psychable to offer Americans legal psilocybin treatment options stateside,” said Jemie Sae Koo, Co-Founder and CEO of Psychable.
