Is it like drug?
How would shrooms help you? It’s a psychedelic drug.
Psilocybin and other psychedelic substances perform almost like a "reset" in the part of the brain that holds the default mode network, or where our sense of self/ego is held. When you take psilocybin, this part of the brain decreases in activity and agitation; a sober OCD brain will have an overactive default mode network (hence the exhaustion we feel so often). With less activity in this area, the less our brain analyzes and ruminates and obsesses, and we can build healthier routines more easily.
I'm not a psilocybin clinician, but I work with ketamine. I've met many folks with OCD who have tried psilocybin for their OCD, and my findings are aligning with the promising research that's out there. However, there are still conflicting schools of thought about whether heroic doses or microdosing is more effective. I would caution anyone prior to using psilocybin: ethical reasons but also that psychedelic experiences are heavily if not entirely dependent on your mindset and setting. Find a trusted, experienced trip sitter you're comfortable with, unless you're microdosing. If microdosing, do careful research and measure doses closely.
Check out the episode on psychedelics from a show on Netflix called "The Mind: Explained." All content in that episode is backed by research.
If you use drugs, you will have another addiction beyond OCD
Not all substances are addictive, and at the same time, all substances need to be used with caution. Caffeine, alcohol, prescribed medication all have risks, they're just legal.
You should but do a lot of reasherch before doing any drugs whatsoever I recommend thc+cbd tincture in a tea with medical mushrooms like lions hart (non pycoative) and then pylocibin mushrooms but like a therapist in a cup tbh
I use http://lazarusnaturals.com/ but it only helps me when I am alone or else the thc in it gets me anxious. They also have thc free ones but they dont work as well. I love thc but I also hate it due to making my social anxiety worse but when I am alone it makes life blissful.
@Matthew Recently just read a study on THC and cannabis in terms of serotonin. Turns out, small doses of THC boost serotonin production, while heavy doses can cause depression. Amazing plant, use with respect and caution.
