Magic mushrooms are wild or cultivated mushrooms that contain psilocybin, a naturally-occurring psychoactive and hallucinogenic compound. That is to say Psilocybin is considered one of the most well-known psychedelics, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations.
To clarify Magic mushrooms are often prepared by drying and are eaten by being mixed into food or drinks, although some people eat freshly picked magic mushrooms.
Also Known As: most importantly Magic mushrooms are also known as shrooms, mushies, blue meanies, golden tops, liberty caps, philosopher’s stones, liberties, amani, and agaric.
Drug Class: In addition psilocybin is classified as a hallucinogen.
Common Side Effects: Magic mushrooms are known to cause nausea, yawning, feeling relaxed or drowsy, introspective experience, nervousness, paranoia, panic, hallucinations, and psychosis.
How Long Does Psilocybin Stay in Your System?
The short-term effects of magic mushrooms typically wear off in 6 to 12 hours.3 But users can experience long-term changes in personality and flashbacks long after taking the drugs.
In the same vein the average half-life of psilocybin ranges from an hour to two, and it generally takes five to six half-lives for a substance to be eliminated from your system.
When taking truffles or other psychedelics, many psychonauts are talking about their “level 4 trip”. Likewise there’s a good chance you aren’t sure what they’re talking about, and actually the trip levels are just a way to explain to others what kind of psychedelic experience you had.
In the same vein we are not going to explain how much you have to take to reach a certain trip level. It really differs from person to person. and, Moreover results vary because there are so many ways people perceive their experience, and there is no perfect way of generalizing an experience into “levels”. It is what it is.
Trip level 1: A little numb and very social
To add you may feel extreme relaxation, a “stoning” effect. Colours and sounds may be different; wider, brighter and clearer.As a result, you are socially more active, and maybe a bit philosophical.
Trip level 2: Creativity and mild visuals
Firstly, everything looks bright to start with and objects may look like they’re slightly moving and breathing. When you focus on objects, it may look like they are made of smooth plastic. More so, when you close your eyes, you may see some patterns. Secondly, your short term memory changes, which causes you to change thoughts rapidly. Your natural way of thought is bypassed, which makes you creative and come up with new ideas.
Trip level 3: Stronger visuals, mild hallucinations
Strong visuals, kaleidoscopic effects, and waving, warping objects and faces around you. Mild hallucinations like flowing water and trees. Closed eye hallucinations are more obvious and attractive (probably 3D). Some disorientation as what you can feel, see or hear. Lost control over what time it is and how long you’ve been tripping.
Trip level 4: Intense hallucinations
Intense hallucinations, things around you are morphing. You may feel that objects or hallucinations are talking to you. You may feel multiple emotions at once, contradictions. Time and reality seem meaningless. Mild synesthesia. Possibly out-of-body experiences.
Trip level 5: Total loss of reality
to summarize, visually, everything is different. Reality and ego are dissolved. You are not sure what you see and what you hear, because everything seems to function as one. Time and reality are gone. You feel like merging with the universe and/or objects around you. There is no way of perceiving things, there is no right or wrong, there is no reality. You feel like you are blended with space and eternity. Some call this Satori, awakening or enlightenment.
