By: David Donovan | Published: Jul 03, 2024

A company that recently wouldn’t recall its items, in spite of various reports of individuals becoming sick subsequent to ingesting them, has at long last given a recall notice.

Prophet Premium Blends is reviewing Diamond Shruumz Infused Cones, Chocolate Bars, and Chewy candies (Micro- and Mega/Extreme-Dose). 

Muscimol Discovery

The products were recalled in light of the fact that the items contained Muscimol, a chemical found in mushrooms.

The organization had been declining to make a move, despite the fact that 23 individuals were hospitalized due to adverse responses to the items. 



After discussions with the Food and Drug Administration, the organization at last recalled the items.

This is so they can track the number of items that might still be available on the market.


CNS Symptoms

Muscimol can create dose-dependent effects on Central Nervous System symptoms with higher doses causing a significant but reversible impact.

The toxicity of muscimol has been reported to be low when it is used in controlled environments.

No long-term damage was observed in animal studies while human cases resolved without severe outcomes.
