Small beige/tan coloured small mushrooms
Magic mushrooms, Shrooms, magics, Mushies, liberty cap
Main effects: Users experience ‘trips’ that cause hallucinations, your surrounding may appear distorted or colours appear more vivid. Your sense of time and or of movement may slow down or speed up. It can feel as though you are dreaming even though you are awake.
If eaten raw magic mushrooms can make the user feel sick and nauseous. If you’re not sure what you’re taking you could end up eating a highly poisonous mushroom by mistake. You do not know how long a trip will last and some trips may be very frightening and unpleasant. Once you’ve taken mushrooms you cannot undo or stop the effects. Like other hallucinogens taking mushrooms can leave you having flashbacks afterwards. Because your sense of reality is distorted you may put yourself at risk of doing something dangerous.
- There are nearly 200 different species of mushroom that contain psilocybin (the hallucination causing substance)
- Magic Mushrooms are eaten or drunk in tea. They are generally consumed in social groups so the user is around other people who are tripping.
- A typical trip can last anything from 2 to 6 hours, depending on what and how much you have taken
- You can build a tolerance to them meaning a higher dose is required to achieve the same effect.
