Toronto’s first magic mushroom dispensary opens

As Canada slowly enters the age of retail magic mushrooms, Toronto already has a head start.

Mushrooms is Toronto’s first magic mushroom dispensary and the province’s second, the company boasts on its website. A Shroomyz in Ottawa opened in May of this year.

Located at 488 Queen Street West, Shroomyz looks like any cannabis store you’ll find in the city. Windows are taped for privacy and customers have to buzz in to enter and start shopping.

The store provides everything from dried psilocybin and microdose capsules to mushroom chocolates and mushroom tea.

Why this sudden interest in magic mushrooms?

Shrooms can have many therapeutic benefits – when used in the right form, of course. Microdosing has also become increasingly popular over the past couple of years because it allows people to experience subtle effects with minimal intoxication. Research also shows that microdosing shrooms can help relieve depression.

Having only been open for a short time, Shroomyz on Queen Street has already gained a great reputation within the community. The store has a 4.9 star rating on Google with hundreds of great reviews to boot.

“First time hearing about this place and had the most wonderful experience. The people working were so informative and helpful with all my questions! The customer service was amazing and so was the music with the ambience,” one review read.

One thing to note when visiting is that Shroomyz only accepts cash. Luckily there is an ATM inside if you forget to stop at the bank on the way.

Items range from $35 for capsules to $200 for a 28 gram bag of dried mushrooms. For a complete overview of their menu, visit their website.
