They contain psilocybin and a related metabolite, which are structurally related to serotonin and are about 100 times less potent than lsd. Partial agonist activity at 5-ht2a receptors mediates the psychedelic effect of hallucinogens like psilocybin, lsd, and mescaline (found in peyote). ...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.

Are raw white cup mushrooms carcinogenic?

Not realistically: There is a hydrazine derivative in some mushrooms called agaritine that binds to DNA and in ridiculously high doses produces cancer in a few animal models. I know no bioscientist who avoids mushrooms. Such chemicals are ubiquitous and unavoidable. Orange juice and pepper contain similar stuff and so does your own feces.

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

Are mushrooms (psychedelic) bad for you?

It depends: What mushroom, how much, in what context (the person taking it, age, medical conditions, why used etc) are all elements required to fairly answer that question. I don't think, however, just because something is psychodelic, it means it is bad for you, but that opinion is unfortunately not widely held in our current american culture. This brings up the legal concerns regarding use. ...Read more

Could these substances(rosa canina l., gycerol, talcum, curcuma longa l., 95%curcumin, capsaicin, polygonum cuspidatum, resveratrol) damage brain?

Possibly capsaicin: The curcumin ; resveratrol are anti-inflammatory ; anti-oxidant with neuroprotective effects. There is a study suggesting capsaicin may damage neurons in 10 day old rats.
