A friend told me about a magic mushroom. Does it exist?

Yes: But it is not magic. Or maybe it is because magic is not real, it's an illusion right? That pretty much sums up drugs and what becomes of people who are addicted to them, in the beginning the illusion is; life is better, more fun, your smarter, enlightened etc. However the reality is quite the opposite. ...Read more

Magic mushroom trips flashbacks possible?

Yes, but it's rare: Psilocybin and psilocyn are the hallucinogenic elements in certain mushrooms. These “magic” mushrooms usually cause nausea before any desired mental effects. People who ingest them often experience distorted perceptions of touch, sight, sound, and taste. Some users become very nervous and paranoid. On occasion, they can also experience "flashbacks" or hallucinogen persisting perception disorder. ...Read more

Does eating magic mushrooms cause you to lose weight?

Does eating magic mushrooms cause you to lose weight?

No: "magic mushrooms" is what most people call hallucinogenic mushrooms, which have psilocybin as their most active component. I believe my colleague is speaking of another kind of mushrooms other than these hallucinogenic ones. Used recreationally, "magic" mushrooms can produce anxiety, panic, and even psychosis. Psilocybin content is unpredictable in these. They are not a weight loss aid. ...Read more

Are magic mushrooms bad?

Are magic mushrooms bad?

Not to the mushroom: I'm sure the mushroom might be offended if it knew that it had such a bad rap with humans....but to answer your question, they are currently not used medicinally because of their high potential for abuse and addiction. They cause changes in mental status and cognition and therefore, I would advise against their use as harm can come to you or others while under their influence. Try rhubarb instead. ...Read more

Psychedelic drugs, including psilocybin/psilocin get more toxic as we get older, because they can greatly increase heart rate and stress the cardiovascular system.
