Despite being illegal to sell without a prescription, psilocybin mushroom stores are popping up across the country. One such store, Fun Guyz, opened last week in downtown Windsor. Its co-owner says he hopes it can be a model for legalizing mushrooms.

Psilocybin, the hallucinogenic compound found in magic mushrooms, is being investigated for its potential to treat certain psychological conditions. But while some experts say microdosing psilocybin can help people with depression or anxiety, Health Canada warns that magic mushrooms are not safe to consume without a doctor’s approval.

Hamilton police shut down two psilocybin mushroom stores this week — Mushroom Cabinet and Shroomyz — and charged the owners. They seized nearly $107,000 worth of products including 404 packages of dried mushrooms (2.83 kilograms), 308 chocolate bars containing psilocybin (4,200 milligrams each bar), and 228 packages of gummies each containing 4500 milligrams.

But a handful of other mushroom stores continue to operate in the shadows, selling everything from kits for home growing to a variety of edibles and supplements infused with psilocybin. The city hasn’t made it a priority to close them down, and police raids have only led to minor arrests and seizures of products under $5,000, which are quickly released.

In Toronto, you can buy mushrooms at a handful of dispensaries — including the popular Strange Love Café on Spadina Avenue — and at shops that specialize in medicinal mushrooms like reishi or shiitake. You can also grow your own mushrooms, or buy them from local farmers’ markets and online. The Mycological Society of Toronto has tips and mentoring for those interested in harvesting wild mushrooms. And you can find innoculated logs for shiitake, oyster and reishi at Mycosource.
