Psychedelic dispensaries are opening up all over North America, here's an updated list of where to find them
Psychedelic sellers are toeing the line in North America, opening up mushroom dispensaries to display and sell their wares, hawking anything from the (perfectly legal) Amanita muscaria to microdoses to raw, packaged Penis Envy and Golden Teachers to even peyote. With laws slowly but surely changing and the public view also moving more left, it’s likely that more and more of these grey-area shroom shops will open up, as well as some that specialize in other, legal psychoactive goodies. We’ve compiled this list of open and existing psychedelic dispensaries that will continue to be updated as new stores come up on our radar.
Address: 651 East Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC
This list wouldn’t be complete without the first and oldest shop in the game. Dana Larsen has been a plant medicine advocate for a long time, starting with cannabis (he opened up a medicinal cannabis dispensary in 2008) and now into psychedelics. The shop was founded in 2019, and sells DMT vapes, Amanita muscaria, dried psilocybin mushrooms, peyote cacti, mushroom teas, and more. In addition to a storefront, they also offer Canada-wide shipping. Want to shop here? Apply for membership first, then the store is your oyster.

A barbershop and a magic mushroom dispensary offering same day delivery in metro Vancouver. Might seem like a bit of a weird combo, but why not? It’s Canada!
Note: They have currently suspended in-person pickup and the showroom due to licensing issues, but we hope to see that resolved soon!
Address: 1181 Granville Street, Vancouver, BC
Operating similarly to all other brick-and-mortar mushroom dispensaries, Zoomers requests potential customers to apply for membership and self-diagnose with an ailment that psilocybin could offer help for before being allowed to shop there. Their product offerings are vast and impressive– edibles and tinctures are available in all forms, from elixirs to chocolates to candies, and raw mushroom strains number around 30, according to Insider’s last visit there.
Address: 925 Seymour Street, Vancouver, BC
Opened in 2021, Fungi Shop is woman-owned and caters to those looking for a recreational experience or beginning a journey in microdosing. The shop features beautiful mushroom art by local artists. Owner Kaitie Degen offers sweet treats, gummies, chocolate bars, and more.
Address: 488 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON
We were the first on the scene to cover Shroomyz’s expansion to Toronto– this isn’t the store’s first location– that one is over in the nation’s capital, Ottawa. It’s cute, small, and colourful, and features a bright, custom mural depicting the Toronto skyline and the shop’s name, as well as some mushroom lights and green, cozy decor. Like Zoomer’s and Dana Larsen’s dispensaries, Shroomyz requires a membership application before allowing shoppers to purchase product, and, currently, only takes cash. Don’t have any? Don’t worry– they’ve got an ATM inside to make sure you’re never left wanting. Raw mushrooms, microdoses, mushroom tea and more are all made available and at your disposal.
Address: 363 Preston Street, Unit 1, Ottawa, Ontario
The original Shroomyz still shines bright like a diamond in Canada’s capital. Opened in May 2022, it’s faced no legal troubles and continues to operate to this day, even expanding, as we’ve mentioned, to Ontario capital and cultural hub, Toronto. Shroomyz currently offers six strains, and sells raw mushrooms starting from seven grams.
The Golden Teacher
Address: 399 Dalhousie Street, Ottawa, Ontario
The Golden Teacher calls itself a “grey area research facility” and sells various mushroom products to those interested. They recently launched their own trip-accompanying product– Shroom Notes, for jotting down all your wavy thoughts. The Golden Teacher comes highly recommended– conversations and reviews on Reddit say the staff are knowledgeable and kind, and the store is clean and well-mainted. The Golden Teacher also sells regular, functional mushroom products– things like chaga tea and immunity-boosting tinctures come to mind– in addition to psilocybin products.
Address: 1351 Grant Avenue, San Francisco, CA
A “smart shop” is a term used for a store that sells legal ethenogens, after-party care, and other things adjacent to drug use, but not outwardly selling drugs. While America still teeters between votes on decriminlization across states, some folks are taking matters into their own hands, and opening up shop however they can. Professor Seagull’s Smart Shop is located in San Francisco, and sells psychoactive wares like Egyptian Blue Lotus, African Dream Seed, kratom, and more.
Address: 1216 10th Ave, Oakland, CA
Technically a church, Zide Door supports the “safe access and use of Entheogenic Plants” and follows a nondenominational, interfaith religion called The Church of Ambrosia. In order to access psilocybin, you must be a member, and in order to be a member, you have to apply, be 18+, and sign a declaration that you are both not a member of law enforcement and that you accept entheogenic plants as part of your religion. Zide Door boats over 40,000 members, and sells psilocybin in the back of the church, in any shape from raw to chocolate.
Address: 1714 E 7th Ave, Tampa, FL
A hemp dispensary has now turned its sights onto another legal substance– the beloved and now rising in popularity Amanita muscaria. Imported from Lithuania and sold by Chillum in gummies, capsules, and powders, the Amanita is completely legal in every US state except Louisiana. Apparently, Chillum also sells a mycology kit that buyers could (theoretically) use to grow their own psilocybin.
