Magic mushrooms are nothing new and have been around for quite some time. They are often found in the Netherlands because of the damp, cool atmosphere that allows them to grow so well. Of course heat allows them to grow more quickly, but not direct sunlight as that destroys the mushroom. Magic mushrooms are considered one of the most natural ways to produce a psychedelic experience as the chemicals are naturally found in the mushroom. Of course, you must remember that deadly poisons are also found in mushrooms so it is not the safest of all mediums it is just one that is easy to control.
What They Do
Many people want to know what to expect when they are on a trip. In order to fully understand you must think of how your brain processes data. The mushrooms alter the way your receptors work and you become more sensitive to light and sound. You will find that light often has trails or other interesting effects. The halos on the edge of light are often intriguing. The reason so many people enjoy dancing while taking magic mushrooms is because of the way the light is moved with the movement of the body. Overall it produces a magical experience, one that is surreal and real all at the same time.
Many people report that they are very mellow when they take mushrooms. This is not something that can be shown by the chemistry of the mushroom but is probably more a result of what it does to the surroundings. There is so much activity in the light and sound people tend to just sit down to enjoy the experience or they move in flowy motions. Mushrooms do not usually bring about jerky types of dancing like hip hop but rather a more flowing symbol of the inner emotion. This all contributes to the mellow feeling.
While this is the standard experience, brain chemistry in every person is different. What you will experience is likely different than the person next to you. This means you should go slowly when you first experiment with magic mushrooms in order to avoid any bad effects. In addition, you can heighten your experience by taking in lots of vitamins, usually done by consuming fruit juices. Also, something you should be wary of or at least aware of during your first few experiences.
Remember that every mushroom is different. Just because you could eat lots of one does not mean it will be the same the next time. You must always be cautious and go slow as the amount of the psilocybin varies each and every time. There is no way to control the amount of the chemical and so you need to be aware of the vast differences in order to protect yourself. In the end, most people have a great time. If you are in a calm place you are likely to have a fun and interesting experience, mushrooms are not recommended when you are stressed out.
