In the second half of an extended talk at SAND 18, Paul Stamets, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur, tells stories of the early years of research into psychoactive mushrooms, and describes a number of species and their characteristics, in particular psilocybes. He then surveys, and shows short films about, recent research into the therapeutic use of psilocybin, including microdosing. He ends by introducing a number of lesser known fungus species, and makes the case for acknowledging their value, not just for medicine, but for humanity as a whole.
