Magic Mushrooms, since they are known, are naturally occurring Fungi which are usually consumed raw or dried and ground up and drank in tea or coffee, and produce hallucinogenic effects. There are numerous, many different kinds and kinds of magic mushrooms with varying strengths. Basically the mushrooms release the imagination to internal or external influences and allow it to run without bounds, if the ‘trip’ be pleasurable or even a nightmarish experience is practically uncontrollable. It generally takes no more than an hour or so for the trip to engage, and can last up to 6 hours. It’s like a less intense option to the much more dangerous semi-synthetic hallucinogen LSD.
Whilst the long run ramifications of taking magic mushrooms regularly are somewhat unknown, the biggest 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 specified ones and it can be extremely difficult to distinguish ones which are or aren’t toxic. Some of these mushrooms are highly poisonous and can kill really slow and painful way, as an example fever, vomiting and diarrhoea. Some have a delayed reaction taking days to exhibit any signs or symptoms before taking your life with simply no antidote.
Because Magic Mushrooms are naturally occurring and not ‘processed’ in any way before consumption, they are somewhat naively considered a safe drug. Simply no drug is safe, and most drugs are naturally occurring or refined from natural plants or fungi anyway. Having said that, they aren’t called an addictive or heavy drug, nor are they as violent or psychologically damaging as LSD, nor are they socially corroding such as for example crack or heroin. With respect to the mushroom-users mental predisposition however, mushrooms can have a damaging influence on the user. For example, if the user is vulnerable to having a vulnerable mental state or is of a really suggestible nature, they could believe their hallucinations to be the manifestation of something true and become somewhat obsessed with it and damaged by it.
One particular documented case of these extremities involved a son who began taking mushrooms and started getting the recurring hallucination of a flower dressed up as a court-jester which repeatedly taunted him with scarring insults. As preposterous since it sounds, without discounting these experiences merely as hallucinations, he believed this abusive-flower to be 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 throughout 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 prior to the advent of his life-changing hallucinations. It could be impossible to state for certain in such a case if the mushrooms were accountable for triggering such continuing mental problems, or an underlying mental illness had been present and the mushroom use was inconsequential, however it is always worth bearing in mind.
