Researchers just discovered new psychoactive compounds in magic mushrooms

Scientists highlight a critical factor in the study that the consumption of pure, isolated psilocybin may not have the same effects has mushroomed in their natural form. Cannabis has similar evidence when it comes to consuming the whole plant, which some can create an “entourage effect” that is more potent than consuming any individual cannabinoid in isolation. The research also claims that they may be a correlation of effects associated with taking mushrooms in their natural form, not like taking lab-created psilocybin.

Previous studies have located and identified compounds like biocytin, norbaeocystin, and aeruginascin, which coincide with psilocybin and psilocin inside these magic fungi plants. However, in the new study, they were was able to locate several additional compounds in four different species of psilocybin shrooms. The team used nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to discover these new compounds, which include harmine, harmane, and harmaline, are all part of a family of chemicals identified as beta-carbolines.
