Magic Mushrooms, since they are known, are naturally occurring Fungi which are generally consumed raw or dried and ground up and drank in tea or coffee, and produce hallucinogenic effects. There are numerous, many different kinds and varieties of magic mushrooms with varying strengths. Simply the mushrooms take back the imagination to internal or external influences and allow it run without bounds, whether the ‘trip’ be pleasurable or perhaps a nightmarish experience is almost uncontrollable. It generally takes no longer than an hour for the trip to engage, and can last up to 6 hours. It’s like a less intense option to the a lot more dangerous semi-synthetic hallucinogen LSD.
Whilst the long run ramifications 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). One up mushroom bar This is 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 all of these fungi are the specified ones and it can be very difficult to tell apart ones which are or aren’t toxic. A few of these mushrooms are highly poisonous and can kill in a very slow and painful way, for example fever, vomiting and diarrhoea. Some have even a late reaction taking days to show any signs or symptoms before taking your life with zero antidote.
Because Magic Mushrooms are naturally occurring and not ‘processed’ at all before consumption, they are somewhat naively considered a secure drug. Absolutely no drug is safe, and most drugs are naturally occurring or refined from natural plants or fungi anyway. That being 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 crack or heroin. With respect to the mushroom-users mental predisposition however, mushrooms might have a damaging impact on the user. For example, if the user is vulnerable to having a fragile mental state or is of an extremely suggestible nature, they may believe their hallucinations to be the manifestation of something true and become somewhat involved with it and damaged by it.
One documented case of these extremities involved a son who began taking mushrooms and started getting the recurring hallucination of a flower 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 be the 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 through the course a can of worms was opened for him. Sadly, to this day he still struggles with emotional and mental issues which simply weren’t there before the advent of his life-changing hallucinations. It would be impossible to state for certain in such a case if the mushrooms were in charge of triggering such continuing mental problems, or an underlying mental illness had been present and the mushroom use was inconsequential, nonetheless it is definitely worth bearing in mind.
