Wild or cultivated, magic shrooms are safe but may cause hallucinations. If you are new to this, you need to research about it first; you may start your journey here.
Lately, there is a lot of buzz surrounding the ‘magic mushrooms’ or popularly called ‘shrooms’. Although the shroom is tagged as a Schedule I drug due to its high potential for abuse or misuse, it has several notable health benefits, these include the following:
- Helps reduce or treat depression
- Helps treat substance use disorders including cocaine dependence and alcoholism
- Helps treat cancer-related psychological distress
- Helps boost creativity
However, since magic shrooms contain psilocybin – a naturally-occurring psychoactive and hallucinogenic compound – out of the peaceful high, the shroom can cause anxiety, hallucination, paranoia, frightening, and confusion. Also, the inappropriate use of shroom may cause a ‘bad trip’ – an unpleasant experience after taking psychedelic drugs. The severity of the intensity of ‘bad tripping’ can be influenced by the dosage of the shroom taken. Thus, before purchasing shroom, make sure you know how many doses you need, as per the expert’s recommendation.
What are the effects of taking magic shroom?
The effects of magic shroom depend on how fresh the shroom is and where was it cultivated. Also, the effects can be influenced by the dose of the shroom taken. But in most cases, shroom can make you feel the following:
- Mild hallucinations with sound and visual distortion
- Very giggly
How long the effects would last?
The effects of the magic shrooms will depend on the size or the dose taken. However, the psilocybin is detectable for up to 8 hours in the system.
Is it addictive?
Magic mushrooms are not addictive but contain a hallucinogenic compound that can cause mild to severe mental distortion.
How should it be consumed?
Depending on how it is packed or distributed by the producers, in most cases, magic shroom’s liberty cap is eaten raw after being dried out, some people make it as a tea, and some producers would extract psilocybin on the shroom’s liberty cap to make liquid drops.
Before consuming shrooms, make sure to follow what was recommended. Do not exceed or mix the shroom with drugs especially cocaine, tramadol, cannabis, and amphetamines because it could cause new high health risks.
What does it taste like?
If you are going to eat raw shrooms, it has a rubber-like texture and earthy taste. You can mix shroom with the food you eat; however, you need to watch-out for mismatching.
Where to find the safe magic shroom?
There are a lot of online stores that sell magic shrooms; however, only a few can offer safe shrooms. At Shrooms Index Canada, you can find reliable sellers, cultivators, and producers of shroom products. On that note, you also need to do thorough research on the people where you are about to purchase the shroom.
Lastly, make sure to purchase, distribute, and consume shroom where it is legally allowed. Since it is considered as Class drug A, you need to be mindful of the legalities of using shroom.
