Magic mushrooms contain psilocybin, a hallucinogenic and psychoactive naturally-occurring compound. So far, there are more than 180 known mushroom species that contain psilocin and psilocybin. Psilocin and psilocybin are chemical compounds found in fresh and dried mushrooms.

Some species of mushrooms contain more psilocybin, meaning more potency than the rest. For example, fly agaric is more potent than liberty cap mushroom. Below are some ways to use mushrooms, their effects, and potential hazards.

Let’s get started.


Methods of Magic Mushroom Use

Magic mushrooms have greyish or white slender and long stems with dark grilled caps on the underside. Dried mushrooms are usually reddish-brown with isolated areas of off-white.

There are several ways through which you can consume mushrooms to get the desired effects. Magic mushrooms can be made into tea, ingested orally via capsules and edibles or mixed into other meals. The mushrooms can also be used as dried or fresh products. Note that psilocybin has a bitter, unpleasant taste and mixing with other meals may be an excellent choice to mask the taste.

Generally, dried mushrooms have between 0.2% to 0.4% psilocybin and traces of psilocin. The psilocybin effects set in after about 30 minutes and hit the peak in one to two hours. Those effects can last up to about six hours, depending on several factors.

The dose and effects vary depending on the method of preparation, individual tolerance, and mushroom type. It is not easy to determine how many hallucinogens each species of mushrooms can offer. If you choose to use psilocybin for recreational purposes, begin with smaller doses and gradually increase to determine your perfect dose.


Effects and Hazards of Magic Mushrooms Use

pros cons

Effects offered by psilocybin are similar to those offered by other hallucinogens like LSD or mescaline from peyote. The psychological use associated with psilocybin use includes the inability to perceive fantasy from reality; auditory and visual hallucinations. If large doses of psilocybin are consumed, there are chances of psychosis or panic reactions occurring.

Physical effects resulting from psychedelic mushrooms include muscle weakness, lack of coordination, vomiting, confusion, and nausea. Combining it with other substances like marijuana or alcohol can worsen or heighten these effects. Large psilocybin doses can lead to severe hallucinogenic effects that last over a long period.

Other notable effects include loss of appetite, sleep problems, excessive sweating, uncoordinated movement, intensified feeling, increased blood pressure, body temperature, and breathing rate. Abuse of psilocybin mushrooms can lead to death; this occurs when a poisonous mushroom is confused with a magic mushroom and ingested.

The first signs of mushroom poisoning are vomiting, stomach cramps, or diarrhea a few hours after consuming mushrooms. In case of these signs, mushroom poisoning should be considered, which is an emergency medical case.

Psilocybin tolerance has been reported, which means a person may require a larger dose to experience the same effects. Effects similar to those experienced by LSD consumers have also been reported as mentioned earlier. For that case, people who use mescaline or LSD develop cross-tolerance to psilocybin.
