Magic mushrooms, also known as psilocybin mushrooms or “shrooms,” are psychoactive mushrooms that contain the primary ingredients of psilocybin and psilocin. Magic mushrooms grow throughout most of the world, usually in damp, dark conditions. There are hundreds of species of magic mushrooms.
Psilocybin is one of the classic psychedelics, alongside LSD, DMT and mescaline. Psilocybin is rapidly converted to psilocin in the human body, which then exerts a psychoactive effect in the brain. Other compounds in magic mushrooms have been shown to have an “entourage” effect, amplifying the potential of psilocin to induce a psychedelic experience.
The magic mushroom experience is considered more gentle than most, lasting only a few hours and with a generally more pleasant bodily high. Magic mushrooms can be eaten raw, brewed into tea, or dried and powdered.
