The long arm of the law may be able to reach brick-and-mortar pot shops, but for now, there are many more digital-only outlets for buying psychedelics. The industry has not yet reached the peak of its recreational cannabis market, but it is attracting entrepreneurs and investors who are eager to cash in on microdosing, the practice of taking small doses of psilocybin (the psychoactive substance found in magic mushrooms) as a mood booster or spiritual cleanser.
Psychedelics online canada – organicshroomcanada.co and psilocin are classified as Schedule III drugs under Canada’s Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, meaning that they’re illegal to possess or produce without a prescription or license. But that hasn’t stopped people from ordering psychedelics online. The e-commerce companies that sell them use loopholes to skirt the laws, and online searches for psilocybin have exploded since 2018.

One such company is Burnaby-based Filament Health, which is working with Health Canada to see if MDMA, or ecstasy, can be used to treat severe mental health issues. Its co-founder says that working with the federal government could make it easier for Canadians to access psychedelics like psilocybin and MDMA, which are already available through a Special Access Program for those who have doctors’ approval.
Another entrepreneur, Trevor Larsen, has been selling psilocybin capsules online through his website XtroPsil for two years now. He has never tried the drug himself, but he knows the market well. He has a customer base of thousands and says he makes up to $50,000 in total revenue a month. He also sells kratom, which is legal because it’s not on Canada’s list of controlled substances, and LSD analogues, which are technically legal as they have molecular similarities to the drug, but produce similar effects.
