So, What Are Magic Mushrooms?

Magic mushrooms, also called as ‘shrooms’ or ‘mushies,’ are mushrooms containing naturally occurring psilocybin or psilocin that are harvested in the wild or cultivated for its psychoactive and hallucinogenic effects and/or medicinal properties.

How Does a Psilocybin Mushroom Look Like?

Mushrooms containing psilocybin look like common mushrooms and are often mistaken for one. They have deep brown tops, brown or white cores, and extended, slim, whitish-gray stalks.

First Reports of the Mushroom and Current Legal Status

The earliest reports of the therapeutic use of the psilocybin traces back to the Mayan and Aztec civilizations of Mexico and Guatemala and other parts of Mesoamerica, then the historical and cultural area of North America.

By 1971, the UN’s Convention on Psychotropic Substances had included the psilocybin in their list of Schedule 1 drugs but did not include mushrooms as they did not have a selection for it. This loophole in the stipulations has enabled countries to use the mushroom through provisions, or the lack thereof, in their laws.

Presently in Canada, both psilocin and psilocybin are classified as Schedule III drugs under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA). In reality, however, the law is indifferent about the sale of dried and fresh mushroom and allow the sale of spores, magic mushroom growing kits, and the necessary paraphernalia.

How Do You Consume Psilocybin Mushrooms?

There are as many magic mushroom strains in Alberta you can choose from as there are ways to consume them. Some of the most common ones include:

What Effects Can It Have on You?

The tripping experience depends on you as everyone feels them uniquely and there are different factors such as the amount that is taken and the strength of the dose that may affect it. In general, however, you can expect that:

  • Your understanding, insights, and experience of everything near you will intensify—they may appear to be breathing or distorted as if they’re growing and you will grow more aware of your surroundings.
  • You will see geometric or fractal-like images and patterns.
