Good article. I think this topic would benefit from some inside perspective.
The synthesis of psilocybin and psilocin is not challenging at all and does not goes against nature. The process is direct. Have a clean substrate; inoculate with the spores; when it’s mature enough the substrate will be rich in psilocybin and psilocin; at this stage just dissolve the substances with a appropriate solvent.
It’s very easy and straight forward and would greatly lose its power if any kind of aggression to the system were introduced.
The spirit of the psychedelic substances are interested in sharing their knowledge. They are not particularly interested in any specific shape or form. It can come as independently grown sources or industrial scale cultivation.
Fear not. Legalization and industrialization of psilocin is not going to hurt the great spirit of this fungus.
