Research suggests psilocybin may help address depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. Studies have also found it can increase spiritual well-being.
Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound. It is found in more than 200 species of fungi (mushrooms). For centuries, indigenous and tribal communities around the world have used psilocybin for spiritual, ceremonial, and other purposes. Psilocybin services will soon be an option in Oregon.
In Oregon, “psilocybin services” refers to preparation, administration, and integration sessions provided by a licensed facilitator.
Psilocybin services will be available to people aged 21 or older and will not require a prescription or medical referral.
Psilocybin may only be provided to a client at a licensed psilocybin service center during an administration session.
A client meets with a licensed facilitator to prepare for a session.
An administration session is when the client consumes the product at the service center and begins their session with a licensed facilitator.
An integration session is optional and supports the client in following up with a licensed facilitator to learn about additional peer support and other resources.
Also known as the Oregon Psilocybin Services Act, Ballot Measure 109 (M109) was voted into law by Oregonians in November 2020. It is codified in Oregon Revised Statutes in ORS 475A. M109 directs the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to license and regulate psilocybin products and the provision of psilocybin services. Oregon is the first state in the United States to create a regulatory framework for psilocybin services.
