Shroom Tourism in Canada – What are Your Options?
We all know that the cannabis industry has taken off like a rocket in Canada, especially since cannabis has officially been legalized in the country. Cannabis dispensary stores have opened up all over the country, and online dispensary sales are going through the roof. All sorts of cannabis cafés have opened up and continue to do so on a daily basis. In that sense, Canada is starting to resemble Amsterdam, where tourists are flocking to the northern gem in order to try out the plethora of cannabis varieties we have available.
What about magic mushrooms though? Has shroom tourism boomed the way cannabis has? What options does someone in Canada or coming to visit Canada have to buy shrooms and enjoy the large variety the country has to offer? Let’s analyze this in this article and discuss shroom tourism in Canada.
Are Psilocybin Shrooms Legal in Canada?
As we discussed in one of our previous blogs titled “Are Magic Mushrooms Legal in Canada?”, psilocybin mushrooms are not technically legal in the country just yet. While an array of research and studies have been conducted on the therapeutic benefits of psilocybin mushrooms and much has been discovered regarding how beneficial they can be, especially to people suffering from depression, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, and other related mental health disorders, it hasn’t reached the point of being decriminalized in the country just yet. For this reason alone, Canadians just aren’t feeling safe enough to freely open up their shroom dispensaries and related businesses to the public due to legality reasons. Even so, you can still find a ton of walk-in shroom dispensary stores (especially in places like British Columbia, Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal) and an even greater number of online shroom dispensaries where you can order dried shrooms, microdose capsules, and edibles in all kinds of price ranges and dosages.
Despite shrooms’ current legal standing, the Canadian government and police don’t seem to crack down as hard on shroom dispensaries as they used to. This was the same situation for cannabis not too long ago, and now cannabis is legal in the country. It seems like this will soon be the case for psilocybin shrooms (at least we hope so).
So many Canadians and medical practitioners are fighting for the right of Canadians to use psilocybin for therapy. Cluster headache, opioid use disorder, and terminal cancer patients launched a lawsuit against the federal government of Canada in July 2022, claiming that constitutional law requires increased accessibility to psilocybin-assisted therapy for those who would significantly benefit from its therapeutic use.
Shroom Tourism in Canada
Shroom tourism in Canada is beginning to boom. Not only can you find your shrooms in walk-in shroom dispensary stores or from online shroom dispensaries, but you can also find some lovely magic mushroom retreats to go on with friends, your partner, or just on your own, in order to have a magically spiritually uplifting experience.
- The Journeymen Collective in Vancouver focuses on bringing spiritual well-being into the business sector. Their guided mushroom rituals, which are performed in local lodgings and involve the blending of 2 to 5 grams of psychoactive fungi with exquisite chocolate, are meant to assist company executives and executive teams in aligning their organizations with a higher purpose.
- Silo Wellness, which was established in Oregon and currently has offices in Canada and Jamaica and provides its clients with psychedelic magic mushroom retreats and therapy. Their retreats include luxury accommodation, psilocybin ceremonies, excursions, one-on-one site meetings, microdose activities, healthy meals, and much more.
- DesignAgency has made designs available for Dimensions Algonquin Highlands, a “psychedelic therapeutic resort” in Ontario.
The retreat will be built on a 45-acre site three hours north of Toronto, Canada, in collaboration with the psychedelic health company Dimensions and DesignAgency, an international design agency. It will consist of a group of structures erected around a lake in the woods with the goal of promoting psychedelic healing, a form of therapy that includes the use of psychoactive drugs like psilocybin.
There will be 17 private cabins on the property, each with an A-frame exterior with windows on the sides facing the lake. Additionally, there will be a dining lodge, wellness services, and areas for activities like group yoga.
The first Psychedelic Journey Centre in Canada will be situated in central Alberta, according to information released today by ATMA Journey Centres Inc. (“ATMA”), an Alberta-based organization dedicated to providing cutting-edge psychedelic-assisted therapies abroad.
There already seems to be a lot of money to be made: By 2027, the psychedelic market is expected to grow from $3.8 billion to $10.7 billion, according to Data Bridge Market Research.
Magic mushroom culture in Canada is growing richer and richer day by day. The ancient knowledge and practices of this magical fungi are becoming sacred once again, and more and more Canadians are turning to its exceptional healing qualities to improve the quality of their lives. The age of pharmaceutical drugs is slowly ending and the age of natural plant medicine and connecting with Mother Earth is being reborn. Doctors and medical practitioners are also turning to more natural forms of medicine to heal their patients now, as it’s being deemed safer and more reliable than any other form of synthetic drug that may exist. Psychedelic therapy not only heals ailments but gets to the core of what is causing the issue in the first place. Sometimes this is of a more spiritual nature, and it allows you to connect with your inner self and your spirit to find out what it is that needs healing within you. It is a more permanent method of healing oneself rather than a band-aid solution like taking a pill for something that might calm the pain temporarily, but the issue just keeps coming back.
