Common Side Effects of Psilocybin Mushrooms

All hallucinogens have the potential to cause mental and emotional issues as well as mishaps when under the influence. Magic mushrooms are regularly combined with alcohol and other substances among teens, increasing the psychological and physical hazards.

Shroom consumption can range from a light trip with sensations of relaxation or tiredness to a terrifying experience with hallucinations, delusions, and fear. Magic mushrooms have even been known to trigger convulsions in the worst-case situation.

Side effects of magic mushrooms can include both physical and mental effects.

Physical effects of psilocybin mushrooms include:

  • Dilated pupils
  • Drowsiness
  • Headaches
  • Increased heart rate, blood pressure, and temperature
  • Lack of coordination
  • Muscle weakness
  • Nausea
  • Yawning

Mental effects of shrooms are:

  • Distorted sense of time, place, and reality
  • Euphoria
  • Hallucinations (visual or auditory)
  • Having introspective (spiritual) experiences
  • Nervousness
  • Panic reactions
  • Paranoia
  • Psychosis

More research on the long-term, long-lasting side effects of magic mushrooms is required. However, it has been claimed that long after ingesting mushrooms, people can experience long-term psychological changes as well as flashbacks.

Poisoning is another potential risk of using these medicines because magic mushrooms resemble toxic mushrooms. Poisoning from mushrooms can result in serious disease, organ damage, and even death.

Magic mushroom products are also frequently contaminated. Pharm Chem Street Drug Laboratory examined 886 samples allegedly containing psilocybin mushrooms. Only 252 (28%) of the mushrooms were hallucinogenic, while the remaining 275 (31%) were conventional store-bought mushrooms laced with LSD or phencyclidine (PCP), and the remaining 328 (37%) contained no drug at all.
