Psilocybin is chemically similar to a neurotransmitter called serotonin, your brain uses this like it would serotonin. You could think of psilocybin as a pseudo-neurotransmitter. Something interesting, psilocybin is a type of DMT, which is a very strong hallucinogen effects wise. DMT occurs naturally in the brain.

The LD50 (humans) is ~13 grams pure psilocybin i.v. per average human (65 kg/145 lbs.)(10). This is equivalent to consuming more than 2 kg or 74 ounces of dried mushrooms of the species Psilocybe cubensis (results based on calculations that Psilocybe cubensis is ~0.63% psilocybin).

Actually it is 19 grams of pure chemical or your body weight in fresh shrooms. However, anyone who would eat more than five pounds and up could died form eating toomuch at one time.

Mario Lanza died from eating too much.

Those are figures from jonathan Ott and Jeremy Bigwood based on clinical studies and c hemical analysis.
