Although it is illegal to sell vancouver magic mushrooms in Canada, this hasn’t stopped Vancouver shop owners from selling magic mushrooms. Psilocybin, also known as “shrooms,” can be purchased in various forms including jellies, gummies, chocolates, and even in tea bags. A single Ethos 50 HP Healing Potion tea bag, for example, contains 750 mg of psilocybin and offers a medium trip experience.
A longtime drug policy reform activist, Dana Larsen operates a mushroom dispensary and a cafe in downtown Vancouver, with the goal of pushing for changes to federal law regarding psychedelics such as psilocybin. He is one of the few dispensary owners contacted by Healing Maps willing to go on record about his efforts.

In addition to offering different strains of mushroom, Larsen’s Zoomers in the Granville entertainment district carries entheogenic plant products like coca and kratom, and sells guide handouts on using microdoses. He also runs a community drug testing service that is open seven days a week.
The federal government has made Legal Exemptions & exceptions for medicinal use, but getting a business licence for mushrooms isn’t easy. Despite this, Larsen hasn’t had any problems with the police when selling his psilocybin, and says that the city is more focused on people who traffic harmful opioids, which contribute to an ongoing drug crisis and fuel gang violence. This is a growing problem in Vancouver’s downtown Eastside, where opiod overdoses have surpassed gun murders as the leading cause of death for people under age 40.
