A Sunday report from Global News spotlights a unique way that some people are coping with the stress and anxiety of the coronavirus pandemic — magic mushrooms.
The publication spoke to Jen Burke, a member of Canada’s Edmonton Hiking and Psychedelic Society who has been micro-dosing psilocin mushrooms along with approximately two dozen other members of the group. According to Burke, an increasing number of people in the group’s online monthly discussions are focusing on the use of psychoactive substances like magic mushrooms.
For Burke, magic mushrooms have helped her cope with the pandemic.
“There’s so many people who were struggling and having a hard time with it. But I felt great,” she said.
