FunGuyz Opens First Montreal Shrooms Store

Montreal, Canada is a major centre for finance, transportation and psychedelic drug development including clinical trials on psilocybin-assisted psychotherapy. It is also a hotspot for the new trend of microdosing magic mushrooms. Microdose capsules contain 50 to 300 milligrams of dried fungus that is a powerful hallucinogen and can produce the same effects as a full dose. They are used by people who wish to feel a more subtle effect than what a full dose provides, or as a way to avoid the intense hallucinations associated with larger amounts of shrooms.Read more

FunGuyz, a company that sells mushroom products, opened its first Montreal location on Tuesday, even though it is illegal to sell and possess magic mushrooms without a medical prescription. The owners of the chain, which has 11 locations across Ontario and five in Toronto, say they are engaged in civil disobedience similar to those who ran cannabis stores before marijuana became legal.

They are targeting people who have been prescribed psilocybin by their doctors to treat conditions such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and cluster headaches. Potential customers must show a referral from a doctor, naturopath or traditional Chinese medicine practitioner. The store also offers online information on how to use the mushrooms and recommends starting with a low dose of around 100 milligrams of psilocybin per capsule.

In larger doses, up to 5 grams of shrooms can lead to an out-of-body experience, intense hallucinations and a loss of contact with the logical and known perception of reality. This is why many people choose to take them in small doses and slowly increase their dosage over time.
