My friends are all stupid assholes and won't let up about how bad mushrooms are and how they'll kill you if you eat to much or that there destroying our brains and I'm pretty sure theres no truth to this but I wanted to know for sure so what do you guys know about shrooms effects on us?

and do you ever get idiots that say this "what do you mean there not posinous that's what gets you high when the posion eats at your brain" or something stupid like that?

I'd like some info so that I can be sure I know the truth no matter who believes me cause if there stupid enough to think that and still do those drugs then there real morons.

I'll make this short and simple becuase this is one of the numerous qustions that can be easily searched for by using the search funtion, not to mention read in the numerous FAQs.

Psilocin, a tryptimnine, is chemically similar to serotonin. Serotonin (5HT) is a neurotransmitter which is involved in many of our behaviors. Serotonin synapses are abundant in the cerebral cortex making it likely that they are involved in the processes of perception in some way. Chemicals like psilocin and LSD distort our perception by binding to one type of serotonin receptor, 5-HT2.

Psilocin or psilocybin are non toxic to your body. The chemicals do not cause any harmfull physical side affects. It does not kill brain cells. It is neither non addictive physically nor mentally. Typically psilocin is matabolzed completly out of your system within 2 to 5 days. The LD50 of psilocin is so high in humans, it is roughly estimated that one would have to eat their own body weight in mushrooms. I doubt anyone could eat a 1/4 pound without passing out.

Mushrooms do have their risks. If you grow your own, you have to be carefull of contamination. Certain bacterias and fungi excrete toxins that are deadly if consumed. If you pick your mushrooms out in the wild, you have to be carefull you don't pick a deadly look-a-like. Many wild mushrooms that are consumed are not identified correctly and serveral people each year are hosptialized and or die because of liver faliure. And there's always the risk of having a bad trip or breaking down into a psychotic episode... though highly unlikely. People with a family history or background of mental illness are more prone to these psychotic episodes.

Spread the truth and put an end to the ignorance in your friends. If they want to spread negative information of drugs, they are plenty of other drugs on the street to fight a war againts. Crack, heroine, coacane, etc.

mushrooms coat your brain in a black mush which atracts insects and when they lay their eggs in your brain, the eggs turn your frontal lobes into jelly temporarly. Most of it turns back to normal brain but some is left behind. This jelly gets you high.

no no, mushrooms release tiny faries, who make kool-aid inside your brain (strawberry kiwi), drink, then urinate the urine then makes it's way into small capilary's in the brain.. the mushrooms themselves do nothing, but the fairy urine, man, if you get a good dose your gone, highly halucinogenic.

Also incorrect. Anything can be mentally addictive as it is the cause of enjoyment.

By the way, good info.

You're all wrong! The mushrooms work like this...

Upon ingestion of your magic friends, the veil will be torn away and the mushrooms will come alive in your stomach and begin to dance around. This dancing of mushrooms (accurately portrayed in Fantasia) causes psilocybin friction (don't ask) which inherently tears down the boundaries of the "real world" perspective you are stuck in and take you to mushroom land! Or as it is often called... DIMENSION X!

Or was that Z? I don't know. Just ignore me please.

Yeah, I would definately say that its possible to become Psychologically addicted to anything, as opposed to a physical addiction. Sure, I dont get the shakes or get dope-sick from Shrooms, but I definately feel that It'd be fun to trip again...

"serveral people each year are hosptialized and or die because of liver faliure."

Just for the record, you mean they die of liver failure or are hospitalized because they misidentified the mushroom, right? I'm just annoyed by claims that "normal" psilocybin mushrooms will give you liver problems

great post by the way, man :smile: Peace

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.
