In British law magic mushrooms are illegal but having spores

This answer was rated:

In British law magic mushrooms are illegal but having spores are not. I use mshrooms for medical reasons as I suffer from Cluster Headaches and it is the only drug that works for the relief from constant pain, my doctor is looking into giving me a certificate for the mushrooms itself so I am noot breaking the law by growing the mushrooms. My question is can I set up a clinic for cluster headaches and sell the spores to grow mushrooms to all sufferers who choose this alternative medicine and not break the law.
Thanks for your question, I will do whatever I can to help you. Please remember to rate my answer SMILEY FACE OR ABOVE.


This is because it is only legal to sell the spores for research purposes only.

If you set up a clinic and offer out spores you would be acting illegally.

It must be for research purposes only as cultivation is also illegal.

You would be guilty causing or permitting others to grow, or concerned in the supply of.

As such you can only sell them for research purposes only.

I hope this helps.
