As researchers watch, magic mushrooms are revealing their secrets.
Pharma companies with expertise in 5-HT3 receptors are focusing on antagonist drugs to combat nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients.
This is the first time researchers have correlated psilocin bound to 5-HT2A receptors in the brain, levels of psilocin in the blood, and subjective experiences.
You may have heard of magic mushrooms or even consumed them. But what are they?
"Blue bruising" is one of the most famous features of psilocybin-containing mushrooms. In this article, we explore the chemistry of blue bruising and propose a mechanism for the chemical reaction that causes this unique effect.
The metabolism of psilocybin (and psilocin) is frequently cited. But, the supporting references are seldom discussed.
