Psilocybin Mushrooms

Psilocybin is a hallucinogenic substance obtained from certain types of fresh or dried mushrooms. The mushrooms are usually ingested orally by being brewed as a tea or added to other foods to mask their bitter flavor. After being consumed, the psilocybin in the mushrooms is broken down to produce psilocyn, another hallucinogenic chemical.

Magic Mushrooms

The psychological effects of psilocybin mushrooms include hallucinations and an inability to discern fantasy from reality. Psilocybin frees the brain from archived pathways based on patterns and assumptions and opens up new perspectives and thought processes. Good feelings and psychedelic visions of sound and color also accompany the experiences of a human under the effects of psilocybin and psilocin, also referred to as magic mushrooms.

Mushroom Abuse

Psilocybin is illegal in the U.S. and described as a Schedule I substance because of the high potential for abuse and the fact that it serves no legitimate medical purpose. The risks in association with the ingesting of psilocybin mushrooms include, but are not limited to, panic reactions, psychosis, and even death. Many users may suffer mushroom abuse and are affected by nausea, vomiting, muscle weakness, drowsiness, and lack of coordination. There is also a risk of being poisoned if a variety of poisonous mushroom is incorrectly identified as a psilocybin mushroom.

Slang Names for Psilocybin Mushrooms

Psilocybin mushrooms also go by slang names on the street, such as:

  • Little Smoke – This is another name for any type of psilocybin mushroom. The name was acquired because of the option of some users to grind the mushrooms and smoke the grinds. However, any hallucinations or “trippy” experiences the user seeks to find are not reliable with this method.
  • Magic Mushrooms – Psilocybin mushrooms are also called Magic Mushrooms because of the characteristics and effects they produce when ingested. Specifically, the mushrooms change one’s delineations of fantasy and reality. The world, as experienced by the person affected by the shrooms, becomes fantastical or “magical” and all of life’s worries are forgotten.
  • Purple Passion – A slang term for psilocybin mushrooms; used because of the purplish tea that results from grinding the mushrooms and mixing them with water. Also, some mushrooms may be purplish in color.
  • Shrooms – A shortened term for psilocybin mushrooms; used on the street.
