Are shroom moms the new wine moms? There are a few similarities! And even though, some claim this is a new trend, parenthood and psychedelics go way back. Let’s see what exactly the shroom moms are after! 

TL;DR

  • Shroom moms and wine moms behave similarly (both seem “proud” of their lifestyle, and using wine or shrooms as a way to cope with parenthood). 🍷 🍄
  • Shroom moms often practice psychedelic parenting, which prioritizes the well-being of the family achieved through psilocybin shrooms. 🍄
  • Shrooms remain illegal in many states. This makes shrooms moms potentially guilty of breaking the law; while wine moms remain clean. 🍷
  • Overall, shroom moms should not be perceived through the same lenses wine moms are. 🍷🍄

Are Shroom Moms the New Wine Moms?

Are Shroom Moms the New Wine Moms

The term “wine moms” refers to a stereotype of mothers who regularly consume wine as a way to cope with the stress of parenting. The idea is that these moms use alcohol as a means of relaxation and self-care, often using humor or social media to express their love for wine. “Shroom moms” refers to mothers who use or microdose magic mushrooms as a means of personal growth and spiritual exploration, often in a therapeutic or medicinal context.

Some people argue that wine moms and shroom moms flaunt their lifestyles in the same manner. Both frequently post memes and “inspirational” quotes, as well as participate in online communities (for example, Facebook groups).

So, are shroom moms the new wine moms? It’s difficult to say for certain. While the use of psychedelic substances is becoming more accepted and normalized, it’s not yet clear whether “shroom moms” will become a widespread phenomenon like “wine moms” have. After all, even when microdosed, psilocybin mushrooms are still illegal in many states.

Now, shroom moms don’t use psilocybin the same way wine moms drink wine. For wine moms, wine is the thing that only affects them, and is for them only. Shroom moms, however, use shrooms to deepen and enrich their motherhood. Some even claim that the usage made them better parents.

How true could that be? Well, it has been proven by clinical trials that psilocybin works just as well as antidepressants. It helps with major depressive disorder, anxiety, anger issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, and even postpartum depression. Many moms are turning to shrooms to cope with the challenges of the motherhood. Microdosing mushrooms, for example, is their way to stay calm and collected. 

What Is Psychedelic Parenting? 

Psychedelic parenting is a term used to describe a style of parenting in which the use of psychedelic substances is integrated into the family’s approach to mental health, personal growth, and spiritual exploration. This approach is rooted in the belief that psychedelics, when used responsibly, can be powerful tools for personal transformation and healing.

It is worth mentioning that this is not a new “pandemic” trend, or a thing “kids do these days.” The use of psychedelics in a family environment has been practiced in many cultures for ages.

The most controversial thing about psychedelic parenting is that some parents allow their children to use psychedelic mushrooms alongside them. We do not endorse, nor advocate for, this practice. However, we would like to bring to your attention the fact that many parents allow their children to drink small amounts of alcohol under their supervision. Why would magic mushrooms be treated differently?

For example, how old is old enough to begin taking psychedelics? How old is old enough to even know about them? When should a young person be introduced to these experiences? So, for instance, in shamanic cultures, kids are around this medicine all the time. But the difference between our [Western] cultures and those [shamanic] cultures is that they have a “container” to hold those experiences for kids.

Once again, the way shrooms work for shroom moms is different from wine. Not to mention that the concept of alcoholic parenting is simply outrageous. That is not to say psychedelic parenting is safer or better. There is not enough evidence to prove neither the safety nor the dangers of this practice. But, what is provable is the intention behind these. Wine moms drink for themselves, and themselves only. Moms who microdose do that with their whole family in mind. 

So, are shroom moms the new wine moms? Definitely not.

So, are mushroom moms guilty of any crime? That’s debatable. It is not illegal to be tripping or microdose. What’s illegal is the possession, or distributing psilocybin mushrooms to children. It is also legally (and sometimes morally) sketchy to be tripping or microdosing in the presence of children. There are people who would accuse moms on mushrooms of child negligence.

On the other hand, though, a few states and cities have decriminalized shrooms. There is even a shroom dispensary in Oakland, CA! Microdosing psilocybin there is no more illegal than drinking wine. 

All in all, are shroom moms the new wine moms? No. Even if they appear similar in their behavior, there are too many differences in terms of intention, values, and legality.
