Shrooms, also known as magic mushrooms, are the funkiest mushroom there is. There are over 2000 different species of these mushrooms from around the world. These magic mushrooms are usually grown in Mexico and other Central American countries and have been used in indigenous rituals for hundreds of years. The effects are quite unique, and are not the same effects as those from acid reflux drugs like antacids or alginates. These shrooms produce a kind of “high,” which is often described as a trance-like state that makes one feel enlightened and insightful.
People have long speculated on the mental effects of shrooms. Many claims have been made based on anecdotal evidence from users, and small amounts of mushrooms have been found in some unexplained cases. A classic case study is that of R. Gordon Smith, who was a British medical student who claimed to have had a near-death experience after consuming large amounts of mushroom juice. In fact, this study has been cited in the respected Journal of the American Medical Association.
But why do people say that magic mushrooms have magical effects on the mind? The claims made about these magic mushrooms are based on two primary theories. One is that they can increase the serotonin levels in the brain and thus improve one’s mood. The second theory is that they can increase the production of “feel good” hormones like dopamine and endorphins as well as increasing the number of natural pain-relieving hormones in the body, thereby reducing the chronic pain many people suffer from.
In order to test these claims, scientists tested a number of different types of magic mushrooms and found that they all had the same effect: the test subjects said that the levels of happiness and other positive feelings they felt while under the influence of the mushrooms were greater than those who were not ingesting them. This supports the feeling that shrooms can induce feelings of happiness and wellbeing, but exactly how they do it is something scientists don’t understand well yet. It is also possible that psilocybin has a similar psychostimulant effect on the brain as does ecstasy, although this hasn’t been proven scientifically. There are also a number of side effects to take into account, including dizziness, nausea and even upset stomach.
Other common side effects associated with taking shrooms are nausea, diarrhea, and anxiety, although this usually goes away within a few hours. More seriously, some users have experienced severe anxiety attacks, and panic attacks, as well as depression. Although these side effects can be disconcerting and even frightening, there is no evidence to suggest that they are caused by the consumption of mushrooms. Instead, these are symptoms that occur after consuming larger doses or taking longer than recommended. In most cases, these side effects will go away once the drug has been stopped, whether by you personally stopping your consumption or by consulting your doctor.
To a certain extent, the question of whether or not mushrooms are safe has to be answered with an emphatic “no”. While they are certainly safer than many legal drugs that are available over the counter, it is important to remember that they are still considered illegal substances, and thus, fall into the same category as hard-core illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and marijuana. If you do decide to try shrooms for the first time, it is important that you do so responsibly. The internet is a great resource for buying magic mushrooms; however, it is recommended that if you do purchase from online stores or order from physical shops in the United States, that you are sure you are buying pure mushrooms rather than contaminated ones. It is also recommended that if you decide to try shrooms for the first time, that you stick to a single purchase and try not to add to your habit by regularly purchasing more shrooms. This should help you limit your negative effects and any potential health risks.
