Mushrooms or simply shrooms are naturally occurring type of foods. It may be wild or cultivated type. It is liked by many as a choice of food or just an additive to foods. Mushrooms emerge from the earth just like the toadstools. They are so similar such that that one may end up interchanging them. Mushroom resemble a grass-thatched house in shape .mushrooms have become a business as the demand to it has increased. This has led to artificial mushrooms which can be grown even without the need of soil. 

Magic mushroom is one category of magic mushrooms that differs from the common edible mushrooms. The magic mushroom is a type of mushroom that contain a drug known as psilocybin. Psilocin or psilocybin is a kind of a drug that causes hallucinations. This is a state of seeing images that do not exist. This mushrooms can be eaten in dried form or fresh. The psilocybin drug may be injected or snorted as a form of drug administration. 

However this mushroom can also be added to tea, mixed with cooked foods or simply added to fruit juice if powdered. The magic mushroom is made of several types. 

Psilocybe semilanceata 

Semilanceata also known as liberty cap, this is a famous mushroom which contains the Psilocybin. This type of mushroom grows in damp areas, grassy places especially which is mostly grazed by sheep or cattle. But it does not grow direct and feed on dung .This type has small size compared to others. It comes in two colours: brown or light yellow. The semilanceata mushroom has a pointed cap. 

Psilocybe Cubensis 

Cubensis is the other kind of magic mushroom. This is the most common of all the psilocybe mushrooms on the go. It has been given several names: Mexican mushroom, large psilocybe and golden cap.it comes in different types. Its cap mostly appears reddish brown in colour, with a yellowish or white stem. When it is crushed or bruised, the flesh (which is so sticky) turns brown. This is what people use to define it as magic. This type grows in humid and moist climates. It also grows on the dung. Therefore, it is found in cattle and sheep grazing areas.

The Relationship Between Magic Mushrooms and Cancer Patients

A compound in magic mushrooms called psilocybin which contains powerful psychedelic is considered promising in helping cancer patients. According to researchers, this can be used as a onetime single dose and you could still feel its effects as long as five years down the line. Though not clearly defined, the relationship between the ‘magic’ mushrooms and cancer patients is a healthy one. 

Psilocybin can interfere with how the brain receives new information therefore providing a positive reaction towards life by cancer patients. This can be proven by the feedback researchers got from a group of cancer patients who used the drug. They agreed that the impact a single dose of psilocybin combined with therapy has had in their lives is huge. Some even described it as a life changing experience. 

Psilocybin can also be used to reduce the amount of depression and anxiety commonly experienced by cancer patients. Recent research has shown that cancer patients, especially those in the last stage, have shown a lot of improvement in positivity towards death. This is mainly due to the psilocybin which is similar to serein which is produced by the brain, which affects perception and mood. Therefore, a dose of psilocybin interferes on how cancer patients perceive information positively, which in turn changes their whole attitude towards cancer. This then lessens their depression and anxiety and makes them accept themselves. 

There’s also a negative side to psilocybin which includes euphoria and visual distortions. This negatively impacts on cancer patients and may double their depression. According to research, the negative effects of psilocybin on cancer patients will last for a short or long period of time depending on how the patient’s body reacts to a single one-time dose of the drug. 

Although researchers recommend the drug, most people don’t prefer it due to fear of the negative effects. Psilocybin can also be abused like other drugs such as marijuana and have long term effects. 

All in all, psilocybin is seen by medical personnel as a promising start towards the defeat of cancer. It helps in reducing the level of anxiety and depression and improves the overall spiritual wellbeing of a cancer patient. 

From the above illustrations, the relationship between magic mushrooms and cancer patients is mainly positive though it can also extend to the negative side. Cancer patients stand to gain a lot if this drug is officially passed to be used as a treatment. By reducing the levels of depression and anxiety among cancer patients, a single term one dose of psilocybin will improve their perception about life which will in turn result to long lives among cancer patients.
