What is wood lovers paralysis?

While psychedelic research is rapidly advancing, there’s still a lot we don’t know.

For instance, there’s little research on a rare but scary side effect of magic mushrooms called wood lovers paralysis – a condition causing muscle weakness or paralysis for several hours.

The phenomenon only seems to occur after ingesting mushroom species that grow on wood like Psilocybe azurescensPsilocybe cyanescens, and Psilocybe subaeruginosa.

Luckily, companies like Lexston Life Sciences (LEXT) and CaaMTech are beginning to study the genetic makeup of various mushroom species to better understand what causes the condition.
