Yet, many people are already using products claiming their powerful healing properties.
Thanks to methods that can extract the potent nutrients in mushrooms, people can make their tinctures.
And companies are selling medicinal mushroom-based products as dietary supplements and functional foods.
Let’s get started.
1. The “Psychedelic Renaissance”: Hallucination or Reality?
Oregon took a bold initiative to legalize medical psilocybin and decriminalize recreational drugs. But not without making a stir among local and national authorities.
On November 3, 2020, voters approved Measure 109 and 110. So, Oregon became the first state to legalize psilocybin in the so-called “magic mushrooms” on a statewide basis.
It’s also the first state to do away with criminal charges and jail time for personal drug possession of hard drugs, such as heroin, cocaine, meth, or LSD (Measure 110).
This initiative encouraged more states to ease restrictions on recreational drugs across the country.
Why is Oregon so involved in legalizing psilocybin?
One in every five adults in Oregon is dealing with a mental health condition. The state has one of the highest prevalence of mental illness among adults in the USA.
So, Oregon therapists wrote Measure 109 to use psilocybin for treating patients. It would help people suffering from anxiety, depression, and other ailments.
If psilocybin-assisted treatment proves to be successful, it could save the state a lot of money currently spent on treating chronic conditions.
With the help of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), steps are being taken to improve people’s lives and health. Plus, to find better tax administration solutions.
And legalizing psilocybin is one of them.
What is psilocybin?
The effects usually include euphoria, visual and mental hallucinations, perception changes, distorted sense of time, and spiritual experiences. But they can also have possible adverse reactions such as nausea and panic attacks.

How does psilocybin legalization work?
No matter how “cool” it may sound to some, we should avoid any confusion that can make people think they can throw “shroom” raves.
Psilocybin is still illegal and a Schedule 1 drug under federal rules. It has not been decriminalized.
What the measure did was to create a legal framework and a new state-licensed therapy program. This program allows people to receive treatment with psilocybin ONLY in supervised settings.
For the next two years, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) will be responsible for this program and will create regulations.
Therefore, people must be aware that the substance will not be available to buy in stores or take home, as some might rush to think.
- A regulatory framework through the Oregon Health Authority
- An Advisory Board to advise OHA and monitor the program
- A tracking system for psilocybin products
- A two-year development period before licenses will be granted
Does not allow:
- Retail sales
- Access to minors (only persons 21 years of age or older)
- Off-site consumption or possession
- Branding or advertising of psilocybin products
- Untracked psilocybin production, inventory, or delivery

4. Claims That Can Make Your Magic Mushroom Product A Drug
I’ll get straight to the point. If you’re producing or medicinal magic mushroom products, the best advice is:
It’s tempting. And, understandably, you want to highlight the health benefits of your product. But you’re safe if you don’t go in that direction.
Example of best-to-be-avoided claims:
- “alleviates respiratory diseases”
- “anti-inflammatory effects”
- “reduces pains”
- “boost immune system”
The purpose of this example is not to point fingers. It’s meant to help companies have a clearer idea about what they need to do and how to present their products in a way that they are legally safe.
5. Compliant Magic Mushroom Tincture Labeling
Name of your dietary product (e.g. “Reishi Mushroom Tincture”).
Amount of product without the packaging or container.
List all ingredients and excipients in order of weight.
The name, address, and phone number of the manufacturer must appear both on the box and on the label.
And there’s more.
Other details to add about your magic mushroom product
A customer will come back if they can trust you and know they can rely on you. They’ll appreciate full transparency when it comes to the products they buy and ingest. Who wouldn’t? No money is better well spent than on complete satisfaction.
So here’s some more info to add on your mushroom tincture packaging:
Quick friendly tips

6. Your Magic Mushroom Tincture Boxes & Labels From YourBoxSolution
Make your brand look professional without compromising safety and presentation. We have exactly what you need to make magical mushroom tincture boxes & labels.
Let me walk you through.
Material options for magic mushroom tincture boxes
Our SBS Paperboard (Solid Bleached Sulphate) is 50% recycled, 30% of which is post consumer waste material.
The paperboard thicknesses go from 17.2pt and 19.2pt with a coated top surface in one layer (C1S) to 24pt paperboard with both surfaces coated (C2S).
Kraft Paperboard is an eco-friendly alternative. If you’re committed to natural products and environmental sustainability this can be your perfect choice. Kraft paper has a slight texture, so it’s also particularly pleasant to touch. It provides an enjoyable sensory experience.
Metallized paperboard has a fine silver film substrate. It makes any color look metallic without using dies or hot foil stamping. You can choose if you want the shiny effect to cover the entire box or just some parts of it. Find out more about printing on metallic paper.
Type of magic mushroom tincture boxes
For oils, tinctures and similar products, our straight tuck boxes are the best fit.
They are suitable for any glass bottle size and offer protection for shipping and handling while offering you full freedom in terms of design.
If you want to add extra protection and customization, we’d love to help and offer several coating options.
Coatings - For high-end magic mushroom tincture boxes
- Default coating
- UV dried liquid coating
- Protection against sun rays
- Gloss coating on determined areas
- Contrast makes the glossy area “pop up”
- Slick and shiny finish
- Smooth surface
- Adds thickness and strength to the box
- Ideal for creating a sensory appeal
- Hints to luxury
- Adds strength to the box
- Can take a beating
- Very soft sheen, not a full true matte finish
- Adds extra thickness, strength to the box
Do you want to let people have a peek of what’s inside?
Custom cutouts are a wonderful way to display the contents of your mushroom tincture boxes. A cutout is a shape that is cut out of any panel of your box.
It can be of any size as long as it does not affect the integrity of the box. Cutouts can be applied to white, Kraft, or metallic paper.
Inserts are what we call the extra mile because they keep tincture bottles from moving inside the box and breaking.
It’s an additional safety measure to show customers that you care about your products, as well as their satisfaction.
Embellishments for your magic mushroom tincture boxes
Embellishments create a luxurious look and give refinement to your products. And the prices won’t break your budget.
Embossing is a post-print technique that creates a tridimensional raised pattern on your box.
It is often used to highlight the logos or specific brand elements on the box. The effect is a box interesting to the touch, with a very luxurious feel.
Debossing is a post-print technique that creates a tridimensional lowered pattern on your box.
When combined with embossing, hot foil stamping and different coatings, it offers customers the pleasure of a full tactile experience.
This is the process of applying a “foil” onto the box, which produces a metallic effect.
It looks best when used to emphasize a logo or a design element. It can be combined with embossing to create a more striking 3D image.
What’s great with boxes is that without having to make a hole in your budget, you can add more value to your product. Print a custom design on both the exterior and the interior of your box.
Interior printing allows you to continue your branding story to the inside of the box.
You can print an interior nice pattern to match the whole idea of your product (like small different mushrooms, for example).
Or you can just continue the graphics displayed on the outside. This space is perfect to write a short message, a quote, the description of your brand, or even instructions.
The Cost-Effective Packaging For Your Shroom Product - Labels
All products have labels, but not all products have boxes. Though many companies prefer to have both, some sell them without a packaging. So labels are a cost-effective alternative and necessity.
Either way, YourBoxSolution prints the best-quality labels that you can easily apply on glass containers, paperboard boxes, and any surface without worrying they would come off.
Our labels are made of a durable material called BOPP, which makes them:
You can decide what personality and look to give to your labels by choosing from our white, clear, and metallic options. Each of them has a special touch and, combined with your graphics, can make your products unique.
Coatings and finishes are available for labels, too. And the best part is that both your boxes and labels can have the exact color matching and coating. They’ll look and feel the same. This is great for branding because it keeps the consistency and builds a solid image of your brand.
Add extra protection and customization for FREE with gloss lamination and matte lamination. For an additional fee, the soft-touch lamination will create a shine-free surface of your labels making them smooth at the touch and elegant to the eye.
All sizes and shapes are available. Choose yours. There’s nothing we cannot do for your labels to look amazing.
You can give your magic mushroom tincture the packaging it deserves without spending a fortune and waiting for months.
At YourBoxSolution we strive to offer the best quality, giving you the ability to order small quantity boxes and labels (as low as 250 pieces). You can have multiple design options at bulk rate prices, and you can design your very own custom box with specialty inks.
