The so-called hallucinogenic mushrooms belong to the strophariaceae, which produce the psychotropic substances psilocin and psilocybin, which are used in the treatment of schizophrenia and other mental illnesses. Psilocybin revives the memory of the mentally ill, makes them more sociable and helps doctors diagnose illnesses.
