Treatment costs, access and magic mushrooms dispensaries
Neuroscience professor at Carleton University and former researcher and policy analyst at the Canadian Center for Substance Use and Addiction Zachary Patterson sees parallels between these new psilocybin dispensaries and cannabis dispensaries’ status before October 2018.
Magic Mush is the third magic mushroom dispensary opening in Ottawa after Health Canada’s opening of legal pathways for psilocybin use. Located in Centretown, the new shop opened its doors… and operates similarly to cannabis dispensaries in the city, offering a variety of dried mushrooms, microdose capsules, gummies and chocolate bars containing announced amounts of psilocybin. The two other psilocybin dispensaries in Ottawa are called Golden Teacher and Shroomyz have been open since May 2022. Furthermore, this is not the only Canadian province where these shops have appeared: Vancouver and Toronto have their own psilocybin dispensaries working.
