Green Light is a Go for Magical Journey in Colorado
Feb 13, 2023
But First, What Plants are Permitted by Colorado’s Prop 122?
This past Election Day, Coloradans voted in favor of Proposition 122, a ballot measure decriminalizing the personal use and possession of psychedelic plants and fungi.
Even though the ballot measure gives residents 21 years and older the green light to legally possess, use, grow, and transport natural psychedelic plants, many people have questions about what kind of medicinal plants are now allowed in Colorado.
Before the magical journey begins, let’s do some fact-checking.
Proposition 122 passed, with 53.6% of Coloradans voting to decriminalize the personal use and possession of psychedelic plants and fungi. The now-approved measure also defines which certain psychedelic plants and fungi are considered natural medicine. These plants include dimethyltryptamine (DMT); ibogaine; mescaline (excluding Peyote); psilocybin; and psilocyn.
To the newcomer, the above-mentioned is a laundry list of unknown plant types. To industry folks, the approved list is a welcoming beacon shedding light on psychedelics as medicine.
Milagro Mushrooms are all about the benefits of psilocybin and psilocyn, which makes magical mushrooms magical.
Psilocybin and psilocyn are naturally occurring compounds found in nearly 200 types of mushrooms and have been used for centuries as ancient medicine. In today’s world, these approved plants are known to help alleviate PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), relieve anxiety, and assist with depression.
Nick French of Milagro Mushrooms knows first-hand about the importance of incorporating psilocybin into a therapeutic regimen and is excited to be a part of the burgeoning industry. “I have experienced several personal tragedies related to depression, addiction and PTSD. That’s why I started Milagro Mushrooms – to offer a glimmer of hope for people looking for a possible solution with plant-based psychedelics. I want to help people heal faster and prevent suicides and further overdoses from addictions,” said French.
It’s important to note that there are many types of mushrooms and plants that can be poisonous or cause severe illness. That’s why Milagro Mushrooms grows mushrooms that are safe and are from a trusted source.
Psychedelic Plants 101
Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a hallucinogenic tryptamine drug and is the main active ingredient in ayahuasca and is often referred to as Dimitri. DMT is created in a lab or is usually found in native plants.
Ibogaine is a psychedelic found in the Western African shrub known as Iboga. Many people seek ibogaine for treatment related to opiate abuse. According to the online publication Healthline, ibogaine “acts as a mild stimulant in small doses, while large doses reduce opiate withdrawal symptoms and help with substance-related cravings.”
Mescaline (excluding Peyote): Mescaline is a synthetic or natural psychedelic found in small cacti such as Peyote, the San Pedro cactus, or the Peruvian torch cactus. Peyote mescaline is not legal in Colorado.
It is important to remember that this new ruling in the State of Colorado has paved the way to create a program to allow the supervised medical administration of these plants. Nothing can be sold or administered without medical supervision. For more information on these plants and treatment options, please consult a physician before use!
