Yes, this is an indication that the mushrooms contain psilocybin, this is the difference between regular mushrooms and magic mushrooms.
Myth #1: Magic Mushrooms cause bleeding in the brain
A bleeding brain would be diagnosed as a stroke, hemorrhage, or aneurysm. There is no evidence of a brain bleed ever after consuming magic mushrooms.
Myth #2: Magic Mushrooms cause kidney failure
Simply not true, some people experience nausea after consuming magic mushrooms but kidney failure has never been recorded from consumption of magic mushrooms. The psychedelic mushroom species Psilocybe semilanceata does not cause kidney issues, but mushrooms in the family Cortinarius are often mistaken for P. semilanceata, and are harmful to the kidneys. You can avoid these risks by not consuming wild mushrooms or products with unknown origins.
Myth #3: Magic Mushrooms make you go insane
Research has shown that psilocybin mushroom trips and psychotic episodes like those found in schizophrenia have some similarities, but in all cases trips are temporary. Even people who have been admitted to the emergency room after taking magic mushrooms return to their normal physical and mental state within hours. In fact, a recent study found reduced likelihood of psychological distress and suicidality among those who have experienced psychedelics such as magic mushrooms and LSD.
Myth #4: Magic Mushrooms are poisonous
This depends on the definition of “poisonous”. If you consider a chemical substance that induces intoxication, altering consciousness, and cause some physiological changes as poisonous, then sure, magic mushrooms are poisonous. If this were the case, then all drugs are poisonous, including alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and caffeine. A narrower definition of a poisonous substance, however, would not categorize psilocybin as such.
Mushroom poisoning from non-psychedelic mushrooms are possible and can cause serious physical illness and in rare cases death. Magic mushrooms are not toxic. To avoid danger, proper identification of mushroom species is critical. We do not recommend eating wild mushrooms without proper identification.
We have written a guide for first timers and veterans alike so you can maximize the full potentials of magic mushrooms. We have years of experience experimenting and guiding new users through a magic mushroom journey to unlock their full potential.
To have the best magic mushroom trip experience, it is recommended that you plan your trip at least a couple days ahead so you can prepare yourself mentally and physically. There are certain precautions to first time users as with any new experience. As long as you are aware and going into this experience with knowledge, the likely you will have an enjoyable experience.
Age: We only sell mushrooms to people 19 years and older, but we know that not everyone matures at the same rate. We highly recommend users to be at least 21 years and older.
Health: Do not consume magic mushrooms if you are in a bad state of mental health. If you feel depressed, we recommend you try a micro-dose schedule and not take a recreational dose of magic mushrooms. When you are in a bad state of mind, a magic mushroom trip may enhance the bad and you will have a bad trip.
Do not take magic mushrooms if you are in a bad state of physical health. If you have a bacterial and or viral infection like the common cold or flu, avoid taking magic mushrooms until you are back to normal health.
Setting: Do not take magic mushrooms alone for the first time. It is preferred to consume while in the presences of someone who has taken magic mushrooms before.
Find a setting that is a quiet environment with no or very few strangers. Being in nature or a familiar indoor space is advisable. Do not take magic mushrooms in a very public place for the first time.
Do not plans or appointments 24 hours from consuming magic mushrooms. Take your time with your trip. The ideas of having to catch a train or go to an appointment after your trip will take a lot of beauty out of your trip. DO NOT operate motor vehicles during and immediately after your trip.
Switch off your phone. You may not react rationally in the event that there is a good or bad news. Some people switch off their doorbells as to ensure they are not disturbed.
Make sure you are able to contact emergency services in the extreme case they are required.
People: If you are taking magic mushrooms with a group, ensure you are with friends you can trust and enjoy being around. Do not take magic mushrooms with people you feel normally uncomfortable around as the trip will enhance these feelings and reduce the chance of having a great trip. If you are taking magic mushrooms for the first time, we recommend being with someone who has previously experienced magic mushrooms.
Desire: Do not take magic mushrooms because others are asking you to. If you do not feel comfortable and are not willing to take it on your own will it may have a negative effect on your trip. Take magic mushrooms because you want to take them and not because other people convince you to while you’re not completely confident in doing it. When you are scared of the potential effects, do not take them!
Food and drinks: Ensure there is plenty of drinking water for everyone. Water does not lessen the effect, but magic mushroom trips tend to dehydrate the body, so it is recommended everyone hydrate.
Keeping some sugary drinks (dextrose) nearby is highly recommended. Sugary drinks will lessen the effects of magic mushrooms. If you or someone is feeling overwhelmed, drink or offer sugary drinks.
Taking magic mushrooms on an empty stomach will have the best effects. If you have just eaten, consume magic mushrooms 2 hours after your last meal. The trip will begin 20-60 minutes after consuming magic mushrooms depending on your metabolism rate. If you do not feel the effects after 60 minutes, do not consume more right away.
Other drugs: NEVER mix magic mushrooms with other drugs.
When you begin your trip on magic mushrooms you will feel changes in your senses. This means that your senses work on a higher frequency. You will experience things that you would normally not see or realize. These visions are often enigmatic and are not always what they seem. The beauty lies in puzzles. This can be frightening at times but just go with it and don’t try to fight it. Blocking your thoughts will work against you.
During the trip: Drink plenty of water. Drinking water will not diminish your trip but only make your body more comfortable for a more enjoyable trip. Drinking less or no water does not intensify your trip. Magic mushrooms dehydrate your body and if you do not drink water, your body will pull water from other places in your system.
Needs: Everyone will experience a magic mushroom trip in their own way. The difference between each persons needs differ greatly. Some love to chat, some prefer silence, one wants to make love while another doesn’t want to be touched. It is good to be able to communicate about this at forehand and you will understand the importance of surrounding yourself with people you like and trust.
Waves: The effects of magic mushrooms come and go in waves. It can feel like at some points of your trip that the effects are fading. Do not eat more magic mushrooms to increase effects. After only a few minutes you will find the effect increase again without having to do anything.
