Magic Mushrooms Trip
Magic Mushrooms and their active ingredient psilocybin have recently fallen under the radar of scholars and researchers — and no wonder. Psychedelics, in general, now seem to gradually enter the mainstream, as more and more celebrities are starting to reveal their encounters with mind-altering substances, such as LSD, DMT, psilocybin, and ayahuasca.
Scientists have also contributed to all of the fuss as well — an increasing number of papers are now being produced on the matter, which has triggered additional interest in the wide public. It seems that the previous general view, about how psychedelics have ill effects both on your body and mind, seems to be shifting.
When it came to psychedelics, people were primarily focused on their negative aspects. In the best-case-scenario, substances like LSD and MDMA were referred to as the “party drugs,” mainly connected to underground parties. Surely, research on the matter and documented personal experiences, have shown that hallucinogens could potentially lead to negative experiences, often called bad trips.
However, this perception is starting to change. For some time now, one particular hallucinogen has been the center of attention — Magic Mushrooms Trip. More precisely, their active ingredient —the compound psilocybin.
These effects usually peak after 2 to 3 hours after consumption and may last up to 6 hours, depending on the potency and other individual factors. The person’s mindset, or how one mentally approaches the psychedelic, is usually considered to be a major factor in what the ‘trip’ would be like. Let’s now get back to Tommy:
I started seeing steps on the ground and small pathways were as if being built on the floor. Imagine a cat, walking with its moody paws on your wooden floor, leaving dirty marks. I was seeing the same thing, but there was no cat. The lights were crawling up on the side walls, making their way to the ceiling, and down again underneath the room’s door. I looked at the clock and time made no sense. 4pm didn’t mean anything to me.
Suddenly, it all became extremely intense and asked Levi what was going on. He just said, “we are tripping.” I didn’t understand what he meant by that. I couldn’t come up with an explanation why we’d done this.
What’s the plan?
Why did we do this?
Nothing made sense. Levi murmured, “I don’t know. I don’t know.”
I asked him if he could start talking to me. Anything would’ve done the job, but he couldn’t say a thing. So, I started texting some of my friends and kept asking them whether all this made sense. The feeling that I had back there was that I couldn’t see any way out of the ‘trip.’ My mind wasn’t able to figure our when this all was going to end.
The thing about this psychedelic is that its effects are mostly unpredictable. That’s why it differs greatly from other drugs, and substances, such as alcohol, opiates, and benzodiazepines, which usually induce predictable effects. You can see below the harm caused by various types of drugs on the human body (harm to users and harm to others).
