Diamond Shruumz Recalls Products After Dozens Sickened

If you're like me, you might be asking yourself what Diamond Shruumz is. At first, I thought it was some type of cannabis product, but it's actually mushrooms. According to the company's official website, the answer to "What is Diamond Shruumz?" is,

"Why nothing short of the future of microdosing, my friend! Think of it as candy for the creative soul. An artisan treat for the alternative set. Our hand-crafted flavors are not only delicious, they’re packed with a kick of Lion’s mane, a touch of Reishi and a bit of Chaga mushrooms."

The products contain muscimol, a chemical found in some mushrooms. According to the National Library of Medicine,

"This compound is a natural constituent of amanita mushrooms and is extremely toxic. It is a potent central nervous system depressant, and is believed to be responsible for most of the nervous system effects that result from eating this mushroom."

If you feel ill after consuming any Diamond Shruumz products, please contact the Poison Help Line at 1-800-222-1222.
