Magic mushrooms, psychedelics, psilocybin mushrooms — call them what you want. We all want to talk about them.
As easy to get your hands on as weed, many people, university students included, often turn to this drug for the spiritual experience. In fact, shrooms have been used since BCwhere in many cultures they are ingested to induce a trance in the hopes of producing visions and communicating with gods. There are over types of trippy shrooms — the friendlier half contain a chemical called psilocybin, while the other type can contain amanitin. Amanitin is not psychadellic and can be deadly. Last week, a three year old boy in Victoria died from the chemical.
The standard-looking red and white spotted mushrooms, are much stronger and can cause euphoria as well as nausea and dizziness.
When you ingest psilocybin, it gets converted into the active ingredient psilocin in your body, which is chemically similar to serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, a chemical messenger, thought to be linked to producing feelings of happiness. Psilocin increases levels of serotonin because it binds to the same receptors in the brain. This is what le to hallucinations.
Studies suggest that during your trip, the brain temporarily rearranges some of its connections, immediately creating new biologically stable ones. This amplifies intensity of thought and makes it harder to tell reality from fantasy. Some people begin connecting the two to the colour green. Areas of the brain linked with dreaming are stimulated, making hallucinations and visions much more frequent. Certain emotional regions of the brain are activated, leading to the feeling of expanding consciousness. This makes thinking outside the box much more frequent and easy.
Tom, another anonymous UBC student, described his first shroom trip at night on a beach as one of the best days he had at UBC. Shrooms can induce negative affects as well, such as nausea, dizziness, mood swings, anxiety, confusion and paranoia. Many experienced shroom users will often tell first timers to make sure they are in a safe and comfortable environment.
A trip can last between about three to eight hours, depending on the dosage. Having a bad trip with an altered sense of time for that long can be really stressful.
A third went as far as saying it was the single most spiritual experience in their life. Two months later, 79 per cent of subjects reported either a moderate or great increase in their well-being or life satisfaction compared to those given a placebo at the same test session. The world around us is amazing and I was more inspired artistically. Correction: a version of this article stated that Amanita was a chemical.
Amanita is a genus of mushroom that contains the chemical amanitin, which is deadly. Sections News Culture Culture Isolation.
