Psilocybin mushrooms have taken the internet by storm these past few years and people from lower to upper class have been adding them to their routines. What are people raving about and what are the pros and cons to them?
Psilocybin mushrooms are natural to earth, but can also be home grown. They’ve been used for medicinal and spiritual purposes for thousands of years. When eaten, they have been known to enhance your ability to focus, absorb information, process things and enhance your learning ability. Oftentimes this is achieved by what’s called microdosing. This is a method when you only consume a little bit of mushrooms, this is where microsdoing gets its name.
When taking more than a micro dose, the effects have been known to give you a very spiritual experience and ground you and connect you. According to regulars, you must have good intentions before eating them. They have been known to show you things you need to work on about yourself and can bring up your shadows you’ve been hiding behind, and also produce a calm experience and guidance. Some people have experienced anxiety, paranoia, panic and have had fear driven experiences, so it’s best to be in touch with your own emotions and also know your mushroom. It would be best if you could eat them with someone who’s ate them before or someone you feel safe with before trying.
Knowing your mushroom is incredibly important. There have been discussions about the quality of the mushrooms you consume. Questions should be; what is the quality of them? How are they grown? How old are they? How are they handled and processed? Knowing ahead of time when you’re buying them off of a grower is very important, because your trip will depend on the mushrooms’ quality, care, environment, your body mass, age, and mental and emotional state. Consuming contaminated mushrooms can cause a whirlwind of negative effects to your health and mood, so be cautious when consuming these mushrooms.
Psilocybin mushrooms have a laundry list of positive effects and are the reason why people have chosen to eat mushrooms vs taking man-made prescription drugs. With the effects kicking in within 20-40 minutes and lasting an upwards of about 6 hours until the psilocybin metabolizes, and in short term can stay in your system for up to 12 hours. Psilocybin can be tested and like most drugs can be found in your hair follicle for up to 90 days after consumption.
Psilocybin can open many closed doors within the human mind. You may experience unusual things that you wouldn’t be able to reach without it. Humans only use 10% of their brains, so it’s not unheard of that there is an infinite amount of possibilities that can be experienced but not explained. We only see and experience so much in our environment, that to think that this is all there is to experience would be exactly what one could expect to hear from someone who only uses 10% of their brain capacity. The saying goes, “Not all those who wander are lost.”
Consuming psilocybin can give you different effects, it’s best to know the business or person that’s growing them, so that you have the best possible experience with it. It’s best to try small doses known as “microdosing” to get a feel for your tolerance. Never dive into it not knowing how much to eat or where it came from, you could end up experiencing unpleasant side effects.
While the internet has highlighted this magic mushroom, people have taken a general interest in its properties and benefits. John Hopkins is researching psilocybin mushrooms and how they affect:
- Opioid addictions
- Post-treatment Lymes disease
John Hopkins has also effectively been able to relieve emotional distress of those who’ve been diagnosed with life-threatening cancer, nicotine and alcohol addiction and depression. A study was conducted and was found that psilocybin was able to relieve cluster headaches.
While psilocybin is on the rise, you will certainly read about the different positive and negative effects when consuming it and that list is sure to increase as it becomes more popular amongst the human population. People are looking for a more homeopathic way of having a deepened spiritual experience and are more interested now than ever about natural healing plants that we have an endless access to.
Psilocybin isn’t exactly smiled upon with state and government officials however, in fact, psilocybin is considered illegal in many states. Even though officials don’t criminalize mushroom eaters or growers, you may still receive a fine for disobeying what’s been forbidden according to officials. It’s best to know your local laws before diving in.
You can consume psilocybin by eating them on an empty stomach is been said to be the best way to consume them to avoid nausea and other unpleasant experiences. Eating them raw, dehydrating them, adding them to foods or creating a liquid out of them are just some of the ways to consume them. Before you consume them the experience is best experienced by doing the following for a pleasant trip:
- Clear your mind
- Stay home
- Get comfortable
- Have good intentions
- Say out loud what you want during this trip
- Set the mood
- Consume on an empty stomach
- Call in your spirit guides for guidance and comfort
- Open your mind
- Let go
- Tune into your body, mind, sensations and environment
- Allow quiet time
- Clear your schedule
Options to consider before deciding to consume are to try reiki and meditation, so that you’re mentally and emotionally prepared when eating the magic mushrooms. You want to aim to have the best experience you can, so by eliminating some negative factors going on in your life will help you have the best experience.
If you’re going to grow them, I would recommend doing a thorough research to find an authentic grower and or someone with impeccable reviews. If you’re going to buy them, the same applies. Know your laws and know your grower and it’ll lessen the chances you end up with bad mushrooms and an even worse trip.

“I’ve had some incredible experiences I can’t necessarily explain. You wonder what life can offer more of if there was a way to increase our brain’s current ability. I only consume them every once in a while, but I’ve never been disappointed. These are natural tools that I wish were promoted more.” -Anonymous
“I enjoyed it, but it’s certainly not for everyone. There are people who aren’t ready and may never be ready to experience this kind of euphoric phenomenon. Be kind with nature and it’ll take care of you.” -Anonymous
