Drug Cravings – Information on Magic Mushrooms
Magic Mushrooms, because they are known, are naturally occurring Fungi which are often consumed raw or dried and ground up and drank in tea or coffee, and produce hallucinogenic effects. There are numerous, many different types and kinds of magic mushrooms with varying strengths. Simply the mushrooms free up the imagination to internal or external influences and let it run without bounds, whether the ‘trip’ be pleasurable or even a nightmarish experience is almost uncontrollable. It generally takes no more than an hour or so for the trip to engage, and can last around 6 hours. It’s like a less intense alternative to the much more dangerous semi-synthetic hallucinogen LSD.
Whilst the long term aftereffects of taking magic mushrooms regularly are somewhat unknown, the greatest problem is their natural availability (they grow in wild grazing fields in or about cow and horse feces) psychedelic mushroom chocolate bars for sale California. This is often somewhat of an irresistible lure to the thrill seeking mushroom users who’ll go out and collect them independently thinking every mushroom is consumable. However, not all of these fungi are the required ones and it can be quite difficult to tell apart ones which are or aren’t toxic. Several of those mushrooms are highly poisonous and can kill really slow and painful way, like fever, vomiting and diarrhoea. Some have a late reaction taking days showing any signs or symptoms before taking your life with absolutely no antidote.
Because Magic Mushrooms are naturally occurring and not ‘processed’ in any way before consumption, they’re somewhat naively considered a secure drug. Zero drug is safe, and most drugs are naturally occurring or refined from natural plants or fungi anyway. With that said, they aren’t called an addictive or heavy drug, nor are they as violent or psychologically damaging as LSD, nor are they socially corroding such as crack or heroin. Depending on the mushroom-users mental predisposition however, mushrooms can have a damaging effect on the user. For instance, if the user is susceptible to having a sensitive mental state or is of an extremely suggestible nature, they could believe their hallucinations to function as manifestation of something true and become somewhat obsessed with it and damaged by it.
One documented case of the extremities involved a young man who began taking mushrooms and started obtaining the recurring hallucination of a flower clothed as a court-jester which repeatedly taunted him with scarring insults. As preposterous as it sounds, without discounting these experiences merely as hallucinations, he believed this abusive-flower to function as manifestation of truths about himself and spiralled into an extreme depression. He and his friends admitted he was absolutely fine before taking mushrooms, but somewhere throughout the course a can of worms was opened for him. Sadly, to this day he still struggles with emotional and mental issues which simply weren’t there ahead of the advent of his life-changing hallucinations. It will be impossible to express for several in such a case if the mushrooms were responsible for triggering such continuing mental problems, or an underlying mental illness had been present and the mushroom use was inconsequential, but it is always worth bearing in mind.
