Creating New Neuropaths in the Brain
Scientists dressed in lab coats, in a lab far far away, smarter than both you and me have brought to light research that the psychoactive ingredient in shrooms can actually change the way the brain works.
Researchers compared the brains of people who had received injections of psilocybin with those given a placebo. They found that the drug directly changed how information was carried across the brain. Direct your attention below:

Imagine the information in your brain being shared through a network of highways busier than LA rush hour. Shift your attention back to the graphic above. Psilocybin isn't removing these highways, it’s building new and better ones.
With these new information highways, parts of the brain that weren't able to talk to one another are now able to communicate.
I know it sounds crazy, but focus, clarity, and mental health all come together when you reduce traffic that's polluting your brain.
