What are Magic Mushrooms
What are magic mushrooms. Magic mushrooms, also known as psilocybin mushrooms, are a type of fungi that contain a psychoactive compound called psilocybin. Psilocybin is a naturally occurring psychedelic compound that can produce altered states of consciousness, hallucinations, and other perceptual changes.
Magic mushrooms are typically consumed orally, either by eating the dried mushrooms or by brewing them in a tea. The effects of magic mushrooms typically begin within 20-60 minutes of ingestion and can last up to 6 hours.
The effects of magic mushrooms can vary depending on the dose, the individual’s psychological state, and the setting in which they are consumed. Some people report feelings of euphoria, creativity, and spiritual insight, while others may experience anxiety, paranoia, or confusion.
While they are generally considered safe, there are some risks associated with their use. High doses of psilocybin can lead to unpleasant or frightening experiences, and there is a risk of accidental ingestion of poisonous mushrooms that can cause serious harm or even death.
The use is illegal in many countries, including the United States, where they are classified as a Schedule I drug. However, recent research has shown that psilocybin may have therapeutic potential for treating a range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and addiction.
It is important to note that the use of magic mushrooms should only be undertaken with caution and under the guidance of a healthcare professional. If you or someone you know is struggling with substance use or mental health issues, it is important to seek professional help from a healthcare provider or addiction specialist.
Street Terms: ‘shrooms, mushies, liberty caps Magic mushrooms are a powerful, naturally occurring hallucinogenic. There are about a dozen varieties of hallucinogenic mushrooms found growing in the wild in the UK, the most popular being the ‘Liberty Cap’ (Psilocybe Semilanceata). The harvesting season is between September and November. After picking, mushrooms are usually eaten raw, cooked, made into a drink, or dried for later consumption. They are usually sold loose in bags or crushed into tablets. The effects of mushrooms are very similar to acid, although some report a more ‘natural’ high sometimes with a feeling of being detached. Small doses can bring on excitement and euphoria, while bigger doses (15 small UK grown mushrooms or more) can bring on shape and colour distortions and vivid hallucinations.
