WHAT ARE MAGIC MUSHROOMS?
Any type of fungus with psilocybin or its derivative psilocin as an active component is referred to as a “magic mushroom.” To produce a psychedelic experience, also referred to as a “trip,” these substances interact with serotonin receptors in the brain.
Magic mushrooms come in a wide variety; to date, over 180 species have been recognized. Their combined impacts, though, are substantially comparable. They have a wide range of psychoactive effects, ranging from mild euphoria to strong hallucinations and spiritual experiences, depending on the dosage. They have therefore been a crucial component of religious events and rituals for people for millennia. Scientists are now investigating their therapeutic potential because they have recently gained popularity as a recreational drug.
