New research shows properties in magic mushrooms could have long-lasting benefits to treat depression

BALTIMORE — There’s new research on a treatment for depression that revolves around an ingredient considered illegal for years.

CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez says the properties in magic mushrooms could have long-lasting benefits.

Em Hancheck suffers from treatment-resistant depression. Even after years of therapy and medications, he still suffered symptoms.

“I was in a rut and no matter what I tried, things did not really improve beyond a certain point,” he said.

Then in 2019, he joined a study at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, testing a psychedelic drug called psilocybin to treat depression. It’s the same compound found in so-called magic mushrooms.
