Magic mushrooms in Tenerife
Psilocybin, found in magic mushrooms is being studied for a range of mental health conditions. Even for healthy people, it can be a very effective life-improvement tool, if used with respect and following therapeutic guidelines. To get the desired therapeutic results, magic mushrooms require a tremendous deal of attention, knowledge, and assistance.
Tenerife is one of Europe’s best locations for psychedelic mushroom therapy. Plant medicine provides great opportunities to heal people, who are reluctant to take synthetic psychiatric medication. Magic mushrooms have similar positive effects to Ayahuasca, however, they have a higher physiological safety score. The main risks associated to the consumption of magic mushrooms are related to poor set and setting.
The therapeutic potential of magic mushrooms
Psilocybin (the active compound of magic mushrooms) activates serotonin receptors, which are mostly found in the prefrontal cortex. Mood, cognition, and perception are all influenced by this area of the brain. Other parts of the brain that control arousal and panic reactions are similarly affected by hallucinogens. Active visual or aural hallucinations are not always caused by psilocybin. The effects of magic mushrooms are influenced by the amount of the substance used, previous experiences, and expectations of how the experience would unfold.

Magic mushrooms retreat in Tenerife
A well-planned therapeutic magic mushroom program in Tenerife offers a spiritual awakening through nature’s medicine. A growing body of evidence confirms the condition some experts refer to as nature deficiency disorder. Scientists have discovered that the more we are connected to nature, the better we feel: a phenomenon known as nature-relatedness. A closer connection to nature has been shown in numerous studies to promote mental health by enhancing mood, strengthening cognitive function, and reducing depression.
Psychedelics have also been shown to be a tool for facilitating nature-relatedness, according to research. Participants in a 2018 study conducted by Imperial College London were given a 10-milligram dose of psilocybin one week and a 25-milligram dose the next week. Beginning in the first week, volunteers reported a stronger sense of connection to nature, which lasted for seven to twelve months.
The legal status of magic mushrooms in Tenerife
When handled as drugs, psilocybin mushrooms are illegal to sell, but they are legal to possess and cultivate when treated like mushrooms. Anyone who wants to experience the healing power of psychedelic mushrooms in Tenerife should take into account the bizarre laws of Spain. The existing law permits the cultivation and consumption of hallucinogenic mushrooms in private and for personal use. The “private” aspect is crucial: they must be for you and only you. You will be held accountable if you provide them to someone else and they cause injury. If you’re found with them in a public place, you could face a fine or even jail time, depending on the court.
- In Spain, magic mushrooms and other psychedelics are not legal, but they are also not considered illegal.
- Buying spores and grow kits is legal in Spain.
People in Tenerife prefer to get their growing materials from online sites in the Netherlands, where the sale of magic truffles is permitted. In Spain, owning truffles is allowed as long as there is no intention of selling or distributing the mushrooms.
