Psilocin is what makes you trip. The psilocybin in the mushrooms is converted to psilocin when it enters your body (in the stomach I believe) it then makes its way through your bloodstream to the brain. There it crosses the blood brain barrier, which is quite remarkable as only a very small handful of amino acids normally can this is why some may think humans are made for the use of indole derived (LSD, DMT, psilocin, etc) psychadelics. In the brain the psilocin molecule will interact with the 5HT- 1(a) receptor sites. These receptors are where normal serotonin interaction occurs. Instead of serotonin the psilocin acts as a nuerotransmiter, do not worry the serotonin just finds another receptor site as each brain cell has thousands and interacts there. What exactly the psilocin molecule does when connected to the receptor is a mystery to me.

I understand....kinda. i think psilocybin can be absorbed through other parts than the stomach also. when i trip, i found that chewing them up for a very long time, and keeping them under your tongue for awhile really adds the BLAMMO to the trip. i think this makes it safe to say it can be absorbed into the bloodstream through pores under the right circumstances...right?

Could be. I was more under the impression that chewing well helped start the digestion sooner and the result was less time the mushrooms spend in your stomach.
