Osborne Magic Mushroom Dispensary

magic mushroom dispensary

A new storefront adds a touch of psychedelia to Osborne Village and is one of many magic mushroom dispensaries that have cropped up across the country as people try to circumvent restrictions on the drug. The owners of Magic Mush hope law enforcement, regulators and even governments will see the venture through a similar lens as they did when legalizing cannabis in recent years.More info :visit magicmushroomsdispensary.ca

The Osborne store is small, with no name or logo on its exterior and a minimalist interior. Inside, there are books about mushrooms and a menu showing prices for dried and edible products. Customers show identification to prove they are over 19 and purchase a limited amount of the drugs. The average dose for recreational use is between one to two-and-a-half grams, says the store’s owner, Darren Lyman. Anything above that could lead to a hallucinogenic experience, which he describes as “living in a world of your own creation.”

The Science Behind the Magic: Research and Development in Dispensaries

Lyman is a young businessman and new to this side of the drug trade. He admits he may not be making a fortune at the moment, but hopes his investment will pay off in the long run as more people try to treat mental illness through psilocybin.

While it’s illegal to sell psilocybin in Canada, there is a growing number of people who are buying and selling mushrooms online through websites like Facebook Marketplace. A search of the platform turned up three dozen local results for mushrooms, including pictures of what appeared to be psilocybin cubensis, often with a price tag of $100 or more. CBC reached out to sellers, but most declined to comment due to concerns over their legal status.
