Psychedelic shroomies in Toronto are becoming increasingly popular for their medicinal and spiritual properties. Many people say they help treat headaches, stress, cancer-related psychological conditions, and addiction disorders. However, there are some risks involved with this drug. Whether you’re going to an illegal mushroom shop or buying them online, it’s important to understand the effects and how to use them safely.
In Canada, magic mushrooms are still considered Schedule II drugs and can only be sold legally under an exemption granted by Health Canada. But these exemptions are often difficult to get and require a long application process. A nonprofit organization called Therapsil has been helping people apply for these exemptions and says they’re “disappointed” by the government’s refusal to update its rules on mushrooms. It may take years for the government to make the changes needed to allow magic mushroom stores in Canada.
From Shitake to Chaga: A Guide to Toronto’s Top Mushroom Stores
While most of Toronto’s mushrooms are grown in private homes, a handful of dispensaries have opened across the city. These shops sell psilocybin-infused products like tea, gummies, and microdose capsules. They’re usually branded with bright colors and catchy names. While they may be illegal, most of these stores are thriving and have a steady customer base.
Toronto is ahead of other cities in its approach to these shops. The city has a few categories that it gives out business licenses for, including restaurants and bars, but it does not include mushroom stores. If a mushroom store opens up without the city’s knowledge, it would likely be shut down by police who could face charges for running an illegal drug business. However, this doesn’t mean the city doesn’t care about how these stores operate.
