One study completed in the early 2000s reported that patients who took psilocybin mushrooms and had psychological support experienced reduced symptoms of depression after two weeks. Another similar study found that a small group of patients with OCD who didn’t respond to conventional serotonin reuptake inhibitor drug therapy experienced a reduction in their symptoms when taking psilocybin.

Psilocybe Cambodian mushrooms are best eaten whole, taken in microdoses or consumed in psilocybin tea.

To take the mushrooms in tea, boil 1.5-2 cups of water. Once the water reaches a boil, add the dried Psilocybe Cubensis Cambodian shrooms, reduce the water to a simmer and allow the shrooms to steep for 10-15 minutes.
