WHAT ARE MAGIC MUSHROOMS?

  

  • Magic mushrooms are mushrooms that contain psilocybin. Psilocybin is a psychedelic drug with effects similar to those of LSD.

  • Psilocybin mushrooms have been used by many indigenous cultures to induce altered states of consciousness during religious rituals.

 

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS?

  

  • At low doses, magic mushrooms produce feelings of relaxation, not dissimilar to those of cannabis.

  • Users often report laughing a lot and finding things funnier than they would normally.

  • At higher doses, the experience is closer to that of LSD, intensifying colors and producing visual hallucinations and feelings of euphoria.

  • A mushroom "trip" tends to last about four to five hours.

  • Users often report the mushroom experience to be more "earthy" than other psychedelics, increasing emotional awareness and causing less psychological confusion.

  • Many users find the mushroom experience to be spiritually significant while others find it frightening.

 

DANGERS!

  

  • The biggest danger associated with magic mushrooms is misidentification. Some mushrooms are poisonous and cause stomach pains, vomiting, diarrhea and even death.

  • Some users report getting sick even after ingesting real psilocybin varieties.

  • Magic Mushrooms can impair judgement. Driving while under the influence of mushrooms is dangerous.

  • Magic mushrooms, like all hallucinogens, can trigger underlying mental disorders and cause schizophrenic-type symptoms.
