Magic Mushrooms, because they are known, are naturally occurring Fungi which are often consumed raw or dried and ground up and drank in tea or coffee, and produce hallucinogenic effects. There are lots of, many different types and varieties of magic mushrooms with varying strengths. Basically the mushrooms release the imagination to internal or external influences and let it run without bounds, whether the ‘trip’ be pleasurable or even a nightmarish experience is practically uncontrollable. It generally takes no more than an hour or so for the visit to engage, and can last as much as 6 hours. It is such as a less intense option to the much more dangerous semi-synthetic hallucinogen LSD.
Whilst the long term aftereffects of taking magic mushrooms regularly are somewhat unknown, the biggest problem is their natural availability (they grow in wild grazing fields in or around cow and horse feces). Mushroom chocolate This is often somewhat of an irresistible lure to the thrill seeking mushroom users who’ll go out and collect them by themselves thinking every mushroom is consumable. However, not most of these fungi are the required ones and it can be very difficult to tell apart ones which are or aren’t toxic. Some of these mushrooms are highly poisonous and can kill in a very slow and painful way, like fever, vomiting and diarrhoea. Some have a late reaction taking days to show any signs or symptoms before taking your daily life with absolutely no antidote.
Because Magic Mushrooms are naturally occurring and not ‘processed’ at all before consumption, they are somewhat naively considered a safe drug. Absolutely no drug is safe, and most drugs are naturally occurring or refined from natural plants or fungi anyway. With that said, they aren’t known as an addictive or heavy drug, nor are they as violent or psychologically damaging as LSD, nor are they socially corroding such as for example crack or heroin. With regards to the mushroom-users mental predisposition however, mushrooms might have a damaging influence on the user. As an example, if the consumer is susceptible to having a vulnerable mental state or is of an extremely suggestible nature, they might believe their hallucinations to function as manifestation of something true and become somewhat enthusiastic about it and damaged by it.
One documented case of the extremities involved a son who began taking mushrooms and started obtaining the recurring hallucination of a rose dressed up as a court-jester which repeatedly taunted him with scarring insults. As preposterous because it sounds, without discounting these experiences merely as hallucinations, he believed this abusive-flower to function as manifestation of truths about himself and spiralled into a serious depression. He and his friends admitted he was absolutely fine before taking mushrooms, but somewhere during the course a can of worms was opened for him. Sadly, even today he still struggles with emotional and mental issues which simply weren’t there ahead of the advent of his life-changing hallucinations. It will be impossible to state for several in such a case if the mushrooms were accountable for triggering such continuing mental problems, or an underlying mental illness had been present and the mushroom use was inconsequential, however it is always worth bearing in mind.
