The Benefits of Magic Mushrooms
Have you ever heard of psilocybin cubenis? If you are familiar with psychedelic drugs, you have probably heard the street name: magic mushrooms. The official name translates means “bald head”. The brown and white mushroom was given this name because it had a mild-mannered appearance. However, if you ever happen to ingest it, this psychedelic drug will completely change your world and may place you on a path of conscious self-development.
Some background on psilocybin cubenis
The drug known simply as magic mushrooms is just one out of a hundred species that contain psilocin and psilocybin. It should also be noted that this type of mushroom is not a plant. It is actually fungus that grows either on decaying plants or from a spore on dirt.
Unlike other psychedelic drugs, like that of LSD which was discovered in a lab in the 1930’s, mushrooms have been traced back as far as 9,000 BC based on some rock paintings that were discovered in Egypt and Africa. Also, there were remnants of what may have been mushrooms discovered among the ancient Aztec and Mayan ruins in what is now Central America. There is speculation that these Indian tribes may have used mushrooms, along with other drugs like peyote and morning glory seeds, to enable them to produce visions, induce a trance, or simply to become more in tune with their gods.
The different types of mushrooms
Most species of mushroom are simply known for their taste as they are commonly used as toppings on pizza and other forms if Italian food. Mushrooms are widely used because they are more frequently found in nature. This also has to do with the fact that they are more easily grown. Because of this, they are the least expensive to buy. In the United States, you can purchase this type of psychedelic drug in increments of 1/8 of an ounce on the street. This converts to 3.5 grams and has a street value of $20.
Then you have the tripping kind of magic mushrooms, or “shrooms” as they are referred to on the street. The common aftereffects of using the drug are euphoria, hallucinations, and other trippy symptoms. Unlike other recreational drugs such as LSD, the trips that occur with magic mushrooms are shorter and milder. Also, rather than cause hallucinations, this drug simply distorts objects that are already present. During a trip on magic mushrooms, the user’s feelings and emotions may become more intense. They may also see different colors or patterns. Along with all of this, there may also be a sense that time has slowed down, sped up, or even stopped completely.
Under the Controlled Substance Act which was passed around 1970, this drug is classified as a Schedule 1 drug and is illegal in much of the country. You can pick these type of mushrooms in Florida, however, since this is the only state where they grow wild. Since it is possible to pick these on accident, the authorities in the Sunshine State legally allow you to have a small amount on hand with being charged with a crime.
How to use psilocybin cubenis
Now that we know how to get magic mushrooms and how much it costs, the next question is how do you ingest it?
Since mushrooms are an herb, it is more common to brew them in a tea or soak them in rum or alcohol. It is recommended to start with 1 gram if it is your first time using this drug. Since most users describe the taste as being floury, they usually do not like it and end up making a smoothie with it or cooking it in with other food such as chili. You just have to be careful not to cook it too long because too much heat will kill the psychedelic affects.
The effects of a trip vary from person to person and depend on the user’s emotional state while he/she is ingesting it, the type of the mushroom that they are ingesting, and the dosage. If you are having negative emotions, you will likely experience negative side effects. Keep in mind that if you have a bad trip, you just have to ride it out.
Some of the side effects of a trip are:
Lastly, when picking mushrooms, you have to be very knowledgeable as to which ones are toxic and which are not. This is done by pressing the cap with the gill side down so as to release the spores. If you ingest a toxic mushroom, you may experience organ failure and eventually death. It is also not uncommon for those who are experienced at identifying which mushrooms are toxic to make a bad call in their identification process and accidentally ingest a toxic mushroom.
