Psilocybin Mushrooms have been in the headlines quite often lately. And it’s not stories about the negative effects. Psilocybin is being studied for its ability to help with a wide range of complicated ailments and has even been given FDA breakthrough status as a potential medicine for treatment resistant depression.
Exploring these options seems more and more important as health and wellness are constantly challenged. The safety profile, when done in a safe setting, is extremely high. Statistically, psilocybin is one of the physiologically safest compounds known to man. Academic institutes are doubling down on this research and are being led by Johns Hopkins University.
Umbo’s co-founder, Del Jolly, has been working on one psilocybin study with JHU for the last three years and is looking to start publishing this year. Umbo was founded to help support this cause through corporate social responsibility. A portion of sales from Umbo goes towards this research. Umbo also believes in the importance of functional mushrooms as well. Lion’s mane, Cordyceps, Reishi, Turkey Tail and many others are proving to also be incredibly beneficial and an important part of our diets. Umbo offers functional mushroom bars, and energy and rest capsules made up of high quality, organic fruiting body mushrooms and other beneficial adaptogens and compounds.
