Psilocybin / Psilocin (Mushrooms)

Hallucinogenic mushrooms drug profile

Family: Tryptamines
Psilocybin Mushrooms or “Magic Mushrooms” are a very widespread and ancient entheogen. There are several different types of mushrooms that produce psilocybin. Some grow in tropical climates such as South-East Asia and South America while others prefer colder climates such as central Europe, Great Britain, etc.
Traditionally, they have been used by Shamans in South and Central America, sometimes as admixtures to Ayahuasca brews or eaten on their own. Scientific studies indicate their usefulness for treating obsessive compulsive behavior and the fear of death. A different study has also shown how psilocybin induced mystical experiences had positive and long-lasting effects on those that underwent the experiences.

Contemporary use is usually focused around healing, personal growth/development, and exploration, as well as recreation. Many travelers find mushrooms to be less predictable/controlable than LSD, while many of the effects are comparable, though subjectively quite different.
Mushrooms are usually eaten whole, either fresh or dry, or crudely extracted in a tea with lemon juice.
