    MAGIC MUSHROOMS

    What are magic mushrooms?

    Magic mushrooms are mushrooms that contain psilocybin and psilocin. These substances are hallucinogens and have been used by people for thousands of years. There are over 100 subtropical species of magic mushrooms. Since many species look alike it can be hard to tell them apart. The two compounds in magic mushrooms (psilocybin and psilocyn) are hallucinogen, thus consuming them will provide an altered state of consciousness to the consumer.

    10 Best Psilocybe Cubensis Strains - For Beginners & Advanced

     

    How Many Different Types of Psychedelic Mushrooms Are There?

    Psychedelic mushrooms are commonly known as psilocybin mushrooms, magic mushrooms, booms, and shrooms. They belong to the polyphyletic group of mushrooms which are enriched with various psychedelic compounds like psilocybin, psilocin, and baeocystin.

    Almost 200 different types of mushrooms exist and vary due to their composition. The amount of psilocybin – the psychedelic effect causing component – is the main differentiating factor between certain types of psychedelic mushrooms.

    Although magic mushrooms may have hallucinating effects, they can easily be confused with poisonous mushrooms. Therefore, clearly identifying and familiarizing yourself with different types of mushrooms is vital.

    Types of Psychedelic Mushrooms

    There are about 200 species of psychedelic mushrooms which are distributed around the world. These species have different names and are often classified according to their biological genera. Psilocybin, gymnopilus, panaeolus and copelandia are among the most common genera found throughout the world.

    Mexico has the most types of psychedelic mushrooms (53), while more species are spread out in Canada and the US (22), Europe (16), Asia (15), Africa (4), and Australia and surrounding islands (19).

    In general, psychedelic mushrooms are dark-spored, gilled mushrooms which grow in meadows and woods of the subtropics and tropic regions, where the soil is usually rich in humus and plant debris.

    Psilocybe Cubensis:

    The most common and well-known varieties of magic mushrooms is cubensis, which is often referred to as the golden cap due to its cinnamon brown top and can have a diameter of 2-8 cm. The cap gains an eventual flat surface with time as it starts its growth with a conical shape.

    Psilocybe Mexicana:

    Another common mushroom is the Mexican mushroom, commonly known as psilocybe Mexicana. This mushroom grows in Central and South America and tends to develop a brown cap of a diameter 0.5-2 cm. An injured mushroom can be differentiated from a healthy one by its cap color, while a healthy full-grown cap appears to be brown, an injured mushroom tends to turn blue. This mushroom is known to give mild effects to consumers.

    Psilocybe Semilanceata:

    Another common form of magic mushroom is the ‘liberty bell,’ which is always found in grassy, damp fields where animals graze. However, it does not grow on animal dung. These mushrooms tend to have a conical, large cap with a varying diameter of 5-25mm, and their nipple shape usually does not change over time. Consuming this mushroom leads to visual hallucinations, over responsive reflexes, increased heart rate, and pupil dilation.

    Psilocybe Aurescens:

    Growing in the northern Oregon Coast, Psilocybe azurescens are an example of magic mushrooms with relatively higher concentrations of psychoactive biochemicals like psilocybin and psilocin. Due to their cap shape, they are often referred to as the ‘flying saucer’ mushrooms. This highly adaptive species tends to induce its effects in the human body, 30 minutes after ingestion.

    Psilocybe Cynescens:

    Psilocybe cyanescens are also known as ‘wavy caps’ which is due to the shape their cap takes once the mushroom is fully grown. This mushroom is also referred to as the ‘cyan’ or the ‘blue halo’ with areas of growth in the United Kingdom and North America. Due to its potency it is widely used in the United States.

    Psilocybe Pelliculosa:

    Psilocybe pelliculosa are often observed to grow in clusters on forest debris. This magic mushroom is commonly found in British Columbia, Canada, the the Pacific Northwest regions of the United States. With a cone shaped cap in its earlier stages of growth, it later develops a broadly bell-shaped top. This mushroom is known to have weaker effects for those who consume.

    Psilocybe Weilli:

    The rarest magic mushroom is Psilocybe weilli which is found only in northern Georgia in the United States. This fingus grows in the months of May to December in areas with red clay soil with pine needles. The traits of the mushroom include the peculiar smell and taste which is often described to be similar to cucumber.

    Psychedelic Mushrooms Range Far and Wide

    Although, psychedelic mushrooms vary from each other in regard to their features, shape and the duration of effect, all of them tend to have similar effects on the human body. After 20 minutes of ingestion, psychedelic mushrooms tend to show their effects which may include hyperventilation, increased heartbeat, over heightened sensory and emotional response, and sleepiness.

    The extent to which the effects are felt is directly correlated with the concentration of the active biochemicals present in the mushroom. Psychedelic mushrooms are spread throughout the world and have specific traits which need to be carefully analyzed as they can be easily confused with poisonous mushrooms.

    History of Magic Mushrooms

    What is the history of magic mushrooms?

    The use of magic mushrooms in rituals and ceremonies has been woven throughout history. Evidence reaching back to 10,000 BCE in the form of mushroom art on rocks in Kimberley, Australia, points to psilocybin use. There’s also proof littered throughout literature across the ages that diverse global cultures have dabbled in shrooms.

    The Teonanácatl, or “God mushrooms,” of the Aztecs were immortalized in text by the Spanish in the 16th century. The mythical substance Soma, mentioned in the ancient Hindu text the Rig Veda, was argued to be derived from magic mushrooms.

    For ethnomycologist Terence McKenna, the consumption of magic mushrooms irrevocably influenced the trajectory of human evolution (aka his stoned ape theory), contributing to advances in language, culture, religion, and even hunting, a belief echoed by ethnomycologist R. Gordon Wasson.

    Wasson’s writing on magic mushrooms saw awareness of the fungi spread to psychedelic chemists such as Albert Hofmann. Hofmann then launched into research to isolate the active compound in mushrooms and uncover its uses.

    Other leading figures in the psychedelic movement founded the famous, and controversial, Harvard Psilocybin Project in the early 1960s, notably Timothy Leary and Ram Dass. The project investigated and documented the effects of psychedelics on Harvard graduate students.

    Research into the therapeutic applications of magic mushrooms essentially ground to a halt in 1970 following the introduction of the Controlled Substances Act in the US. This trend is being reversed today as researchers lean back into psilocybin research.

    How does psilocybin make you feel?

    Shrooms are known for their profound effects on consciousness and perception. Taking a moderate dose, the experience usually lasts between 4-6 six hours, with the peak occurring 2-3 hours after consumption. Taking a larger dose will increase the length and intensity of the trip.

    Psilocybin can invoke a wildly diverse range of responses in consumers. Those who trip on shrooms commonly report changes in perception and time, including dream-like feelings, illusions, hallucinations, and synesthesia, or a mixing of the senses, such as sounds triggering color and other visuals.

    Consumers often report altered sensory experiences such as flowing patterns or fractal images, a sense of time being drawn out, and personal insights that feel deeply meaningful. These trips can be extremely positive experiences but can also be frightening and disorientating.

    Cognitive function can also be affected, causing divergent thinking—spontaneous, free-flowing, non-linear thinking—unlikely word associations, enhanced creativity, and an emphasis on the experience and meaning of music. Mood swings often occur on top of these: Individuals may experience a range of intense feelings, spanning from bliss and elation to anxiety.

    A consumer’s mindset and the context in which they take mushrooms will strongly influence the direction a trip takes—this is known as “set and setting.”

    For many people, mystical experiences are one of the most defining or memorable features of a shroom trip. Mystical experiences are defined by feelings of unity or interconnectedness with the surrounding world, peace, joy, a sense that time and space have been transcended, and the belief that the experience has provided insight about the nature of reality. Often deeply meaningful, these encounters have the ability to initiate profoundly positive, enduring changes in a person’s life.

    It’s important to note that the consumer’s mindset and the context in which they take the mushrooms will strongly influence the direction a trip takes—this is known as “set and setting.” Why a consumer takes psilocybin, or what they hope to achieve—intention—is equally important.

    Dosage also plays a role in how a trip turns out. Low doses usually result in more mild effects, like drowsiness and intensification of the pre-existing mood. These effects start to ramp up as the dose increases: Medium doses can lead to a controllable altered state of consciousness, while higher doses can send the consumer into a strong psychedelic experience.

    What is psilocybin?

    Psilocybin is one of the major chemical compounds found in psychedelic mushrooms. It’s what’s known as a prodrug, meaning it needs to be metabolized by the body to become pharmacologically active. After oral consumption, psilocybin is rapidly converted into psilocin, a psychoactive compound.

    While psilocybin receives most of the credit for its mood and perception-altering properties, psilocin is most likely the molecule that delivers the psychoactive effects.

    There’s a partial analogy with cannabis. The cannabis plant does not contain THC; it produces THCA (THC-acid), which is non-intoxicating. Our bodies can’t convert THCA into THC, it needs to be activated with temperature, such as a lighter when smoking, or an oven when making cannabutter. However, with psilocybin mushrooms, activation occurs through the body’s metabolism.

    In cannabis, “THC content” refers to the total potential amount of THC, assuming all THCA is converted into THC. Likewise, the “psilocybin content” of mushrooms is the total psilocin content: How much psilocin the body will be exposed to after psilocybin is metabolized into psilocin.

    In 2019, the FDA classified psilocybin therapy as a breakthrough therapy for two clinical trials investigating the effects of it on severe depression and major depressive disorder. This designation was intended to “expedite the development and review of drugs that are intended to treat a serious condition.”

    Pharmacologically, evidence suggests that psilocybin has a very low toxicity and is well-tolerated, though more up-to-date research is needed. While psilocybin is still classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act, federal attitudes appear to be changing.

    What is psilocybin (Magic Mushrooms) used for today?

    Similar to shroom consumers of times past, psilocybin is used recreationally nowadays for enjoyment, to spark spiritual journeys, and to uncover insights about the nature of existence and consciousness.

    Researchers are also picking up where Leary, Hofmann, and other psychedelic trailblazers left off in the late sixties by further uncovering the therapeutic uses of this remarkable molecule.

    “Psilocybin is currently being explored in clinical trials as a potential treatment for a host of neuropsychiatric disorders,” said Tyler. “Synthetic psilocybin has been the subject of a number of clinical trials and research studies to explore how it works in the brain, and its potential uses, in conjunction with psychotherapy, to treat neuropsychiatric disorders.”

    A number of clinical trials have already been completed, reporting that psilocybin-assisted therapy offers benefits for:

    The FDA recently designated psilocybin as a breakthrough therapy for PTSD and treatment-resistant depression. Breakthrough status expedites drugs that are believed to display advantages over existing medical treatments.

    Gauging by this fast-tracking research, psilocybin looks set to play a role in shaking up and transforming the mental health landscape in the years to come.

    How does psilocybin work on the brain?

    Mushrooms are consumed orally and the liver converts psilocybin into psilocin. Psilocin then binds to a subset of serotonin receptors in the brain. Psilocin activates pathways that ultimately cause the brain to communicate in non-ordinary ways, and decrease activity in the Default Mode Network (DMN), said Tyler.

    The default mode network is not a physical part of the brain, but a system of connected regions that plays a role in introspective activities. Daydreaming, thinking about oneself or others, or ruminating on the past or future are all mental processes overseen by the DMN. 

    By inhibiting the DMN, psychedelics increase integration across all of the brain, allowing more fluid forms of thinking to overcome entrenched, repetitive thought patterns. Experts have theorized that the inhibition of the DMN dissolves ego boundaries, reducing the feeling that the “self” is distinct from others and the surrounding environment. New sensory inputs, perceptions, and experiences can then enter the individual’s awareness. 

    “When the DMN is turned down, an individual’s sense of self begins to dissolve, often freeing people—at least temporarily—from negative thought loops,” explained Tyler. 

    Psilocin also increases both neuroplasticity and neurogenesis. Neurogenesis refers to the creation of new neurons and connections in the hippocampus of the brain, and neuroplasticity is the process of how the brain changes and is rewired in response to new stimuli and experiences.

    Neurogenesis is a fundamental aspect of neuroplasticity, with new brain cells created when we learn something new or engage in activities that stimulate our brain. In healthy brains, neurogenesis occurs throughout life, but can be impaired by factors such as a poor diet, alcohol, insufficient sleep, stress and mental illness.

    Many psychedelic drugs increase both neuroplasticity and neurogenesis. Research has shown that psychedelics increase the growth and density of neurons in the brain and activate new neural pathways safely, a feat few compounds are capable of achieving. 

    Enhanced neurogenesis and neuroplasticity have been linked to improved mental health. Experts have pointed out that psychedelics may be ideally positioned to treat psychiatric disorders by stimulating connectivity and integration across the brain, and boosting neurogenesis.

    How do I consume magic mushrooms?

     

    There are 5 best ways to consume magic mushrooms

    1. Straight up chew and swallow – The most usual way to ingest magic mushrooms is simply by eating them. Remember to chew. Effects will kick in typically after 30-45 minutes. The fuller your stomach the longer it will take for effects to begin: consuming mushrooms on an empty stomach, or with very little food, gives a shorter onset and stronger kick-in.
    2. Tea – Consider making a magic brew. Simply crush up the desired amount and place it in a tea bag or let it steep in hot water. Do not boil as high temperatures will destroy the active ingredients. Mix it with your favorite flavor of tea to improve taste.
    3. Capsules – Usually used when taking a micro-dose. Grinder up the magic mushrooms and fill empty gelatin or vegan capsules. The capsules only hold micro-dose doses. You do have the option to take multiple to feel full effects if desired. Capsules hide all taste and makes consumption very discreet.
    4. Psilocybin Edibles – Magic mushrooms can be added to virtually any food. The trick is whatever your recipe may be, avoid adding the mushrooms during any cooking stage. Under excessive heat magic mushrooms lose their potency. Baking mushrooms on top of a pizza, for example would result in reduced effects. Try adding magic mushrooms to sauces or toppings after the cooking is complete.
    5. Lemon Tek – Grind up your mushrooms into a powder. Place powder in a cup and squeeze enough lemon juice to cover the powder. Stir and leave it for 20 minutes. Do not leave longer than 20 minutes. Fill glass with water, stir evenly and drink. This method is to create a stronger effect because of the acidic lemon juice amplifying the psilocybin. Start with half of your desired dosage.
    Can magic mushrooms cause psychological trauma?

    If you have high anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or dealing with other psychological problems or mood disorders you should avoid consuming magic mushrooms. Because of the way psilocybin works on the brain, taking mushrooms might have negative consequences for someone whose mental health is already compromised.

    Can magic mushrooms be detected in a drug test?

    Most standardized drug tests do not test for psilocybin or psilocin the essential psychoactive substances. The standard drug test normally used by almost all corporate and sports testing programs check for these substances:

    1. Cannabinoids (cannabis, hash)
    2. Cocaine (crack, benzoylecgonine)
    3. Amphetamines (methamphetamines, speed)
    4. Opiates (heroin, opium, codeine, morphine)
    5. Phencyclidine (PCP)

    If a test is ordered specifically looking for psilocybin or psilocin it can be detected but ONLY if a specific test is ordered for it. Standard pre-employment tests do not include this because the tests are so expensive.

    Can I become dependent on mushrooms?

    Studies have shown that magic mushrooms do not have tendencies to cause addiction. On the contrary magic mushrooms have been used therapeutically to end addiction. With repeated consumption one’s tolerance may increase, requiring a larger dose to achieve the same effects.

    Benefit of consuming magic mushrooms

    There are many benefits to consuming magic mushrooms, and they have been used in many cultures around the world for thousands of years. The benefits of magic mushrooms are being recognized in a big way.

    1. Studies have shown “a single dose of psilocybin produced substantial and enduring decreases in depressed mood and anxiety along with increases in quality of life” (Journal of Psychopharmacolocy).
    2. The mystical and profound experiences that so many have experienced since the 1960s in American culture are now being explored in mainstream medical science. The results are compelling and paint a proven, positive, symbiotic picture of magic mushrooms as a power healer.
    3. Clinical trials are being run to use magic mushrooms on patients with life-threatening cancer. These trials are trying to understand how a high magic mushroom dose administered in a therapeutic environment can reduce psychological stress and anxiety that comes with life-threatening diagnosis.
    4. Psilocybin is proven to improve neuroplasticity. This is the brain’s ability to learn and grow and change.
    5. Magic mushrooms treats Cluster headaches. Anecdotal evidence suggests in the 2000s, medical professionals started taking notice of psilocybin and LSD as a possible treatment for cluster headaches after some of their patients reported remission following a recreational use of psychedelics.
    6. Magic mushrooms have successfully reduced symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in a small study of patients who did not respond to conventional serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) drug therapy.
    7. Magic mushrooms have been used as part of an assisted treatment plan to treat alcoholism. Reports show that significant reduction in drinking and abstinence from drinking were reported when magic mushrooms were administered as part of the treatment program.
    8. Magic mushrooms have been used in a recent trial to help people quit smoking tobacco. In this trial, two to three treatment sessions with psilocybin as part of a larger cognitive-behavioral therapy program for smoking cessation had an 80% success rate. 12 out of the 15 subjects were able to quit smoking! Conventional smoking cessation approaches such as gum, patches, cold turkey, etc. have about 35% success rate.
    9. Last but not least, it is fun.

    Yes, this is an indication that the mushrooms contain psilocybin, this is the difference between regular mushrooms and magic mushrooms.

    MAGIC MUSHROOM MYTHS

    Myth #1: Magic Mushrooms cause bleeding in the brain

    A bleeding brain would be diagnosed as a stroke, hemorrhage, or aneurysm. There is no evidence of a brain bleed ever after consuming magic mushrooms.

    Myth #2: Magic Mushrooms cause kidney failure

    Simply not true, some people experience nausea after consuming magic mushrooms but kidney failure has never been recorded from consumption of magic mushrooms. The psychedelic mushroom species Psilocybe semilanceata does not cause kidney issues, but mushrooms in the family Cortinarius are often mistaken for P. semilanceata, and are harmful to the kidneys. You can avoid these risks by not consuming wild mushrooms or products with unknown origins.

    Myth #3: Magic Mushrooms make you go insane

    Research has shown that psilocybin mushroom trips and psychotic episodes like those found in schizophrenia have some similarities, but in all cases trips are temporary. Even people who have been admitted to the emergency room after taking magic mushrooms return to their normal physical and mental state within hours. In fact, a recent study found reduced likelihood of psychological distress and suicidality among those who have experienced psychedelics such as magic mushrooms and LSD.

    Myth #4: Magic Mushrooms are poisonous

    This depends on the definition of “poisonous”. If you consider a chemical substance that induces intoxication, altering consciousness, and cause some physiological changes as poisonous, then sure, magic mushrooms are poisonous. If this were the case, then all drugs are poisonous, including alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and caffeine. A narrower definition of a poisonous substance, however, would not categorize psilocybin as such.

    Mushroom poisoning from non-psychedelic mushrooms are possible and can cause serious physical illness and in rare cases death. Magic mushrooms are not toxic. To avoid danger, proper identification of mushroom species is critical. We do not recommend eating wild mushrooms without proper identification.

    I see white fluffy stuff at the base of my mushrooms. Is this normal?

    Yes, this is part of the fungus.

    Microdosing

    What is Microdosing?

    Micro-dosing means to take a miniscule/non intoxicating dose to achieve the benefits to health. It is the administration of doses so low that they will not provide a full body effect but high enough for a cellular response and positive change.

    Microdosing Benefits
    What are the health benefits?

    Few studies have investigated the effects of microdosing directly. Furthermore, experts know little about the effects of long-term microdosing.

    Another issue is that many studies to date have relied on self-reporting. This method often involves asking questions to people who have been microdosing or were already interested in it. As such, there may be a bit of bias in these studies, as the people may expect to have a good experience while microdosing.

    There is not yet enough strong evidence, including comparative research using placebos, to make a case for microdosing.

    However, users report a few different benefits, which generally relate to mental health and well-being. A study in Harm Reduction Journal categorized several possible benefits from reports by microdosers. These benefits include:

    • improved focus, concentration, and mindfulness
    • improved energy, wakefulness, and stimulation
    • cognitive benefits, such as enhanced problem solving
    • social benefits
    • reduced anxiety
    • creativity
    • reduced symptoms, such as stress
    • improved mood, optimism, and life appreciation
    • improved body functioning
    • self-efficacy, including improved ambition, productivity, and motivation

    People also reported other benefits and enjoyments of microdosing, such as the ability to control the dose and the general lack of side effects.

    Improved mental health

    Many of the reasons why people microdose involve some aspects of mental health, such as reducing stress and anxiety or alleviating symptoms of depression.

    In a study in Psychopharmacology, researchers asked people their reasoning for microdosing.

    21% of people responded that they primarily used microdosing as a therapy for depression, while 7% used microdosing for symptoms of anxiety. About 9% of people who responded used microdosing to help with other mental health disorders.

    Overall, 44% of people who responded perceived that their mental health was much better as a consequence of microdosing.

    Another study in Frontiers in Psychiatry used an online questionnaire to ask people who microdose to compare its effects with those of other treatments for symptoms such as depression and anxiety. The answers indicated that people found microdosing more effective than some other forms of treatment but less effective than higher doses of psychedelics.

    In an animal study, researchers noted that microdose levels of DMT helped the subjects overcome fears and anxieties in a test that scientists commonly use to model issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and general anxiety.

    More research in humans is necessary to support this early evidence.

    Improved brain functioning

    Anecdotal evidence shows that some people believe that microdosing helps improve their brain function by allowing their brain to operate at its fullest potential or making them more open to new ideas.

    A study in PLOS ONE found that microdosing makes people report better brain function on dosing days, but these effects do not carry over to other days when the person does not microdose.

    Creativity

    Creativity is a harder concept to quantify and validate, but many people who microdose claim to do so for its ability to boost their creative faculties. However, a combination of other factors, such as stress reduction or increased focus, may lead to this benefit. Again, evidence for this is anecdotal, and scientific studies are yet to back these claims.

    Focus

    Microdosing may also help with temporary focus, allowing a person to work on a big project without their mind wandering. One study suggests that microdosing led to lower levels of distractability.

    Quitting other habits

    Another claim is that microdosing helps people quit other habits, such as smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol. Some people even feel as though they do not need to use simple stimulants such as coffee when they microdose.

    Although some formal research explores the possibility of using psychedelics, such as psilocybin, to help people stop using other drugs, there is little scientific research or proof as of yet. However, anecdotal claims suggest promise.

      How do I microdose?

      There are a few proven and well used by many methods to microdosing.

      If this is your first time consuming any type of psychedelic start off with Dr. Fadiman’s approach. After experimenting if you desire more effect try the workaholic’s approach.

      Dr. Fadiman’s Approach (1 microdose every 3 days)

      Dr. Fadiman recommends taking one microdose every 3 days to prevent changes of tolerance over time. Take 1 microdose pill each morning with breakfast on the indicated days below.

      • Week 1: Mon/Thu/Sun
      • Week 2: Wed/Sat
      • Week 3: Tues/Fri
      • Week 4: Mon/Thu/Sun

      Workaholic’s Approach

      This plan is geared towards individuals looking for high performance at work and creative fields. We recommend this approach to be used after having tried Dr. Fadiman’s approach. This method requires a daily microdose during the week and weekends are left open for recovery to baseline, in case of changes in effect over time. Take 1 microdose pill each morning with breakfast on the indicated days below.

      • Week 1: Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri
      • Week 2: Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri
      • Week 3: Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri
      • Week 4: Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri

      Balanced Microdose Approach

      If you find that Dr. Fadiman’s approach is not providing the desired effects, try this method. Similar to Dr. Fadiman’s approach but instead of every 3 days, microdose every other day. Microdoses are taken 3-4 times per week. Take 1 microdose pill each morning with breakfast on the indicated days below.

      • Week 1: Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun
      • Week 2: Tue/Thu/Sat
      • Week 3: Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun
      • Week 4: Tue/Thu/Sat
      How do I know microdosing is working?

      Since a microdose is meant to be non-psychoactive it is difficult to measure its effects without being very conscious of yourself. Some self-reflection is required to understand your improvements. You can track the effects with this ‘Check Yourself’ checklist. Most likely, you won’t be affected in all areas, but it’s important to take a comprehensive review of the effects. There are 7 areas to track:

       

      1. Mental: Notice the thoughts running through your mind. Are they the same as usual, or different in nature? Are you having more or fewer thoughts than usual? In general, is your mind more clear or more cluttered?
      2. Creative: Are you finding new qualities in things, like stories in objects? Do you find your mind wandering in directions it doesn’t usually? Are you getting more ideas than usual? Do solutions to problems come more easily?
      3. Emotional: Do your feelings take on any different qualities than before? Are there more or fewer feelings experienced than usual? How quickly do you process them before reaching a resolution and moving on? Is sex better, or a different quality?
      4. Social: How are you expressing your thoughts and feelings? Are there any changes in the pacing, tone, or nature of your speech? What about your facial expressions? Do you smile more or less? What frequency do you agree or disagree with someone in conversation? Do you talk differently with your coworkers, spouse, friends and family? The barista at the local coffee shop?
      5. Body: Take a look at how aware (or not aware) you are of your body. Now zoom in on the body by closing your eyes and taking a few deep breaths. Slow your mind and place your full attention on any sensations in your body. Do you notice anything?
      6. Capabilities: Notice if you’re more able to complete certain tasks than usual. This might manifest as changes in attention span, physical/visual acuity, verbal fluidity, problem solving ability, empathy, different areas of awareness, and so on.
      7. Outlook: Are you more positive or negative? More optimistic or pessimistic? More or less skeptical? More fearful and guarded, or open to possibilities Feelings of oneness, universality, truth, connectedness, love, or peace are also in this area.
      How does psilocybin tolerance work?

      Consuming magic mushrooms on a regular basis will build your tolerance for psilocybin. Tolerance to psilocybin builds and dissipates quickly. If you take magic mushrooms about once a week, the effects will be diminished. The built up tolerance should dissipate if you take a few days off.

      Can I mix magic mushrooms with other drugs

      NEVER mix magic mushrooms with other drugs, this includes alcohol and cannabis.

      Some Users Experience Positive Interactions with

      • Cannabis: Cannabis has the potential to enhance the psychedelic nature of the mushrooms, but it’s best to wait until the latter half of the experience so you don’t interfere with the insight provided by psilocybin.
      • Ketamine: Psilocybin + ketamine is the classic Burning Man combination. If you combine ketamine with psilocybin, wait until the intensity of the psilocybin experience has passed before utilizing ketamine.
      • MDMA: Colloquially known as “hippy flipping,” mixing MDMA and psilocybin is a common practice. While no existing research supports the safety or danger of this combination, anecdotal reports show that MDMA can enhance the psilocybin trip and even help you avoid being overcome with negative emotions.

      NEUTRAL INTERACTIONS

      • Coffee: There are no known side effects to mixing coffee and psilocybin, but some believe the energy boost of caffeine can enhance the psilocybin experience.

      Some Users Experience Negative Experiences Combining With

      • Alcohol: Anecdotal reports from emergency rooms suggest that abstaining from alcohol while on mushrooms is the safest and smartest bet. In fact, it’s best to abstain from alcohol while using any psychedelic.[4]
      • Adderall, Xanax, SSRI antidepressants: These are powerful psychoactive drugs with largely subjective side effects, and psychedelic use should be approached with extreme caution if you regularly take any of these substances. On top of that, psilocybin is a potent serotonin agonist, which means it could interfere with any medications that alter the serotonin system.
