Buying Psychedelic Mushrooms in Canada

A new generation of users is embracing the magic of mushrooms. And with the right precautions, you can join them.

Psychedelic mushrooms, or shrooms, contain mind-altering substances like psilocybin and psilocin, which can cause you to see, hear, feel and experience things that aren’t real (hallucinations). They belong to the category of drugs called hallucinogens and can be taken as fresh, dried or powdered mushroom caps, tablets or capsules. In Canada, it is illegal to grow, purchase or sell them without a Health Canada licence or exemption. Find out

But that hasn’t stopped people from opening shops across the country. In the last year alone, Toronto’s first brick-and-mortar psilocybin store opened and Fun Guyz has expanded from 15 stores to more than 30 locations. Meanwhile, British Columbia-based Optimi Health has just harvested its first crop of psilocybin mushrooms at its two 10,000-square-foot facilities and plans to produce up to 2,000 kilograms of dried mushroom per month.

There are also a growing number of online retailers offering safe and reliable options to buy psilocybin in Canada. However, before you make a purchase, check a website’s credibility by reviewing reviews and confirming that it offers lab-tested shrooms for safer consumption. Some sites also offer guided psychedelic experiences for an additional fee.
