Magic Mushrooms : The Psilocybe's Special Guide.

Under the name of psilocybe, the hallucinogenic mushroom is a wild species or a cultivated mushroom containing psilocybin, which is a naturally occurring psychoactive and hallucinogenic component. Psilocybin is a hallucinogenic component ingested from certain types of mushrooms that grow in parts of Europe, South America, and the United States.

Once used for a matter of culture and spirituality, the majority of individuals today use psilocybe as a recreational drug. Indeed, this consumption of psychedelic mushrooms induces feelings of euphoria and sensory distortion that are common to hallucinogenic drugs, such as LSD. According to the 1971 United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances, the active component of psilocybe is a Schedule I component of controlled substances, which means that it has a high potential for abuse and has no legitimate medical benefit. Find information about psilocybe such as their various uses, their side effects and their potential danger.

What is a psilocybe?

Psilocybe is a type of mushroom with mind-altering aspects, which features hallucinogenic substances such as psilocybin and psilocin. In small doses, the trip modifies perceptions, reflection and puts the consumer in a euphoric state while keeping him lucid. It is in high doses that the power of the psilocybe generates real hallucinatory effects and disrupts the perception of time and space.


The active component of psilocybe; psilocybin :

Psilocybin is a hallucinogenic substance that works by activating serotonin receptors, primarily in the prefrontal cortex. It is an area of ​​the brain that is involved in mood, knowledge and perception. Hallucinogens also affect other parts of the brain that control excitement and panic reflexes. The amount of drugs, previous experiences, and the format of the trip that will be performed can impact the effects of psilocybin. After the body ingests and absorbs the psilocybin, the digestive system turns it into psilocin. The hallucinogenic effects of psilocybin usually occur within 30 minutes of ingestion and last between 4 and 6 hours. In some individuals, changes in sensory perception and thinking patterns can last for up to several days.

The general appearance of a psilocybe :

Mushrooms that contain psilocybin are small in size and usually appear brown or tan in color. In the wild, many people often confuse psilocybin-containing mushrooms with other poisonous mushrooms.

How to consume magic truffles or psychedelic mushrooms?

Typically, people consume psilocybe as an infused tea or brew it with food to mask its bitter taste. Producers also grind dried mushrooms into a powder and prepare them in the form of capsules. The majority of people consume magic mushrooms for two reasons: either for pleasure or for a spiritual ritual. At low doses, the psilocybe trip is mild and pleasant. It is a power that is suitable for those who are in a recreational approach. Then there are people who perceive psilocybe as a solution to open the doors of consciousness: in this case, higher amounts are required.

Regardless of your preference, there are several criteria you should keep in mind. If you are new to this, we do not recommend consuming psilocybe in one go. Consuming half a bag is more than enough. After ingesting them, you should expect several hours of alternate consciousness (do not take them before going to work, driving...). It is advisable to stay indoors, especially at home or in another pleasant place, especially if it is your very first time. Going out to a place can give you more colorful visions, but since you will be less in control of the situation, it is an initiative rather recommended for seasoned trippers. Consuming mushrooms doesn't have to be a disgusting experience. Enjoy this psychedelic moment, thanks to its four modes of consumption.

Chewing and ingesting magic mushrooms :

The most common technique for ingesting mushrooms is to swallow them altogether. In this case, it is essential to chew them well and to swallow all the juice that comes out.
