Psychedelic Mushrooms Grew in a Man's Veins After He Injected Them
    #27144313 - 01/12/21 08:07 PM (6 days, 4 hours ago)

https://gizmodo.com/psychedelic-mushrooms-grew-in-a-mans-veins-after-he-inj-1846044856#replies


A man’s experiment with psychedelic mushrooms went disastrously wrong and nearly killed him, according to his doctors. In a new case report released this week, they detailed how the man injected a “tea” made from the mushrooms into his body and developed a life-threatening infection that had them growing in his blood. The experience left him in the hospital for close to a month. Fortunately, he survived.

Sounds like sloppy reporting. He boiled the shrooms, according to the article. More likely what happened is that the syringe was contaminated with Candida and he got a Candida infection. Or other similar pathogenic fungus.

It sounds like the culture grew really fast in two days. Has anybody tried a human blood agar?

Just posting anecdotally, because some people are gluttons for punishment  --

Ketosis can be a feast and not starvation.

Mostly-harmless, potent, fungicidal, OTC herbs can be recommended, when you're growing your own mushrooms. You can nibble on some nasty tasting bitters, without shutting your organs of elimination down, with toxic concentrates.

Holistically speaking, the patient would have immune and stamina issues.

:cuteshit: Detox...

Everything takes it toll on the system, requires a balance and recuperation.

Who needs substrates when you can literally grow mushrooms inside yourself and be high all the time?

Holy damn, there is a better article here that says the fungi were cultured and actually were Psilocybe cubensis!

The paper says "Cultures confirmed bacteremia (ultimately cultured as Brevibacillus) and fungemia (ultimately cultured as Psilocybe cubensis – i.e. the species of mushroom he had injected was now growing in his blood)"

I smell BS, the report says absolutely nothing about how they determined it was P. cubensis. Peer reviewers can sometimes be lazy or dumb and this is the Journal of the Academy of Consultation–Liaison Psychiatry. I don't expect them to know much (if anything) about mycology and molecular biology. Until they provide the methods to determine that P.  cubensis was growing in this guy's blood, I will be skeptic.

Uh, the medical lab techs know how to culture basically any microorganism from a blood sample... Sometimes it takes a while but inevitably it gets done.

I agree but there is no description of methods. Why should I trust what they say if they don't tell me how they came to that conclusion? That's very much what peer review is for. To prevent the publication of BS.

Just remember the cold fusion fiasco. It was published but not true.

Junkies are hilarious. He would inject Doritos and Coca Cola into his veins if he could.  :methisgood:
PS the tea would have killed all the spores anyway, so he got some fungal infection from a dirty needle not psilocybin mushroom tea.

I'm pretty skeptic about that as well.

Before reading the article I assumed it was a different fungus causing the infection, then read that cubensis was in fact the fungus that they found....

....but I'm still having a hard time believing that.


Just seems like the boiling of the tea/spores would make them sterile.....So cubensis spores can "germinate" in blood in a human body :crazy: , that's pretty wild if so. Does this mean there were some teeny tiny threads of mycelium starting to form through out his cardiovascular system?

I haven't read the article in the journal yet that has the details of it all...but did anyone catch how soon the symptoms/issues started for him after he injected the tea?


I wonder how his trip went lol, all reports and stories I've heard about taking tryptamines via IV have been super wild/intense....I also wonder how much liquid he injected. When I think of people taking drugs via IV, I think of a relatively tiny amount of liquid in a relatively small syringe. Unless he used a super small amount of water and reduced it down a lot, a dose of tea seems like a lot of liquid to push into one's veins lol.




That dude was on his way to becoming this lol>>>>>>

Don't be so harsh with him. He had bipolar disease, and he'd gone off his meds. People with bipolar do this at times because standard drug side effects are so awful.

the medical case report just says that the symptoms developed "over a few days". Likely started pretty quickly. Fungemia will fuck your shit up fast  and hard. By the time he got to the hospital, given the case report, my guess is he would have been dead in 48hrs tops without treatment

Why the fuck wouldn't he just get some 4-ACO-DMT if he wanted to slam something shroom-related up his arm? This is the kind of shit that will fuck up pro-psilocybin legislation.

Mentally ill people do crazy things. That's why people call them "crazy." If you don't believe me, search on "Man Injects 18 'Doses' of Semen Into Arm to Cure Back Pain, Ends Up in Hospital."

Yes, really. And it was his own semen, not somebody else's.
