Psilocybin is the primary chemical agent behind the psychedelic effects of magic mushrooms. They have been used for thousands of years, for ritual, religious, medicinal, and recreational reasons all over the globe. Psilocybe mushrooms are not only available but common, on every continent.
These magical mushrooms have been used by humans since the birth of civilization 12,000 years ago, and possibly were even used before then. The earliest evidence of magic mushroom use is a mural that was found in Northern Australia which depicts mushrooms and psychedelic illustrations. Archeologists have dated it back to 10,000 BCE. Rock paintings in Spain suggest magic mushrooms were around prehistoric people in Europe in 4,000 BCE. Magic mushrooms are considered one of the most well-known plant medicines of the earth.
