The Psilocybin Handbook for Women : How Magic Mushrooms, Psychedelic Therapy, and Microdosing Can Benefit Your Mental, Physical, and Spiritual Health

by Jennifer Chesak Author

The Psylocybin Handbook demystifies magic mushrooms while speaking to those assigned female at birth—with zero mansplaining or bro-isms. The Handbook guides readers through sex-specific questions about how psilocybin affects menstrual migraines, endometriosis, premenstrual dysphoric disorder,  hormones, sexual health, and more, but it is also a great resource for everyone, discussing the history, medicinal and recreational benefits, research, legal issues, and practices—like microdosing and trip sitting—around psilocybin.
