Stacey Larsen, owner of Magic Mushroom, said her store sells a variety of mushrooms and psilocybin extracts in jars, tinctures and capsules. She doesn’t grow them herself, but focuses on making the products accessible for people who might otherwise turn to illegal black-market retailers.

She also carries a small selection of shamanist paraphernalia for those who want to take the experience more seriously and wants to encourage her customers to think about what they’re doing and how it might affect them. “I’m not trying to make money, I’m trying to help people,” she said.

While she hasn’t had any police encounters, she knows that it’s a risky enterprise. Psilocybin is listed as a controlled substance under the Food and Drug Act, but a 1979 B.C. Court of Appeals decision held that simple possession of the mushrooms in their natural state did not constitute a violation since the Food and Drug Act only prohibits the chemical compound.
