But, it did not start out this way. They were not always something used for fun. Magic mushrooms were a popular substance used by the native people of Mesoamerica. For more than 3000 years these people used magic mushies in healing religious ceremonies. Recreational use is widespread with the stories spreading across the world in the media of magic mushie trips.
So, what are they?
Magic mushrooms occur in the Australian outdoor environment. Aussies hunt shroomies for their hallucinogenic properties. When consumed, people hallucinate or, more commonly, ‘trip’ out.
The magic effect of these mushies is in the way they change your perception of the world. You will hear and see things that are not there when tripping on magic mushies. The chemicals in the mushies alter the way you think, and distort your thoughts and emotions.
How popular magic mushies are in Australia is unclear. According to the National Drug Strategy Household Survey (NDSHS) 2016, there was a decline in the recent use of hallucinogens from 1.3 percent to 1.0 percent.
Active chemicals in magic mushrooms
The active chemicals in magic mushrooms are psilocin and psilocybin. Psilocybin transforms into psilocin when it hits the human system. And, this is what produces the hallucinogenic effect. The effects are similar to those of LSD but not as strong.
