Is Psilocybin Capable Of Curing Depression?

When we think of hallucinogenic mushrooms, we think of laughter with companions, regular "trips," and stories that are sometimes better left unsaid. Psilocybin, a hallucinogenic chemical derived from a mushroom, was studied for years as a potential treatment for depression patients. Now, decades later, this research has been revived to see whether it may be used to treat psilocybin depression patients resistant to medication.
