Magic Mushrooms, since 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 numerous, many different kinds and types of magic mushrooms with varying strengths. Basically the mushrooms take back the imagination to internal or external influences and let it run without bounds, if the ‘trip’ be pleasurable or perhaps a nightmarish experience is almost uncontrollable. It generally takes no more than an hour for the trip to engage, and can last as much as 6 hours. It is like a less intense alternative to the a lot more dangerous semi-synthetic hallucinogen LSD.
Whilst the long term effects of taking magic mushrooms regularly are somewhat unknown, the largest problem is their natural availability (they grow in wild grazing fields in or just around cow and horse feces). Mushroom chocolate This is often somewhat of an irresistible lure to the thrill seeking mushroom users who’ll get out and collect them by themselves thinking every mushroom is consumable. However, not most of these fungi are the desired ones and it can be very difficult to distinguish ones which are or aren’t toxic. Many of these mushrooms are highly poisonous and can kill really slow and painful way, like fever, vomiting and diarrhoea. Some have a late reaction taking days to exhibit any signs or symptoms before taking your daily life with absolutely no antidote.
Because Magic Mushrooms are naturally occurring and not ‘processed’ in any way before consumption, they’re somewhat naively considered a safe drug. Zero drug is safe, and most drugs are naturally occurring or refined from natural plants or fungi anyway. Having said that, they aren’t referred to as an addictive or heavy drug, nor are they as violent or psychologically damaging as LSD, nor are they socially corroding such as for instance crack or heroin. With respect to the mushroom-users mental predisposition however, mushrooms might have a damaging influence on the user. For instance, if the consumer is vulnerable to having a vulnerable mental state or is of an extremely suggestible nature, they could believe their hallucinations to function as the manifestation of something true and become somewhat obsessed with it and damaged by it.
One documented case of those extremities involved a son who began taking mushrooms and started having the recurring hallucination of a flower dressed up as a court-jester which repeatedly taunted him with scarring insults. As preposterous as it sounds, without discounting these experiences merely as hallucinations, he believed this abusive-flower to function as the manifestation of truths about himself and spiralled into an extreme 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, even today he still struggles with emotional and mental issues which simply weren’t there before the advent of his life-changing hallucinations. It could be impossible to express for several in such a case if the mushrooms were accountable for triggering such continuing mental problems, or an underlying mental illness was already present and the mushroom use was inconsequential, but it is always worth bearing in mind.
