OCD and psilocybin
    #3719394 - 02/02/05 04:12 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I'm entirely sure that every hallucinogenic
mushroom I've ever consumed has been the Psilocybe
cubensis mushroom. I have ingested the mushrooms on 8
separate occasions, with at least 3 months in between
each dose(each dose never exceeding 1.75 dried grams).
I have always considered myself relatively sensitive
to the substance, with life-changing experiences on as
little as 0.7 grams(dried). I was not on any
medication during/prior to the experiences; however, I
did smoke some marijuana during two of the entheogenic
sessions. The pot definitely intensified the
experience to the point where it was almost

Symptoms of OCD prior to entheogenic mushroom
I had severe OCD before consuming the mushrooms. I
was obsessed with perfectionism. For example, when I
was 9, I stayed up until 3:00 am writing a report on
Native American Indians. I ended up rewriting it 5
times because it wasn't "good enough", keep in mind,
these were all the final draft form of the report.
White-out was never acceptable either, it just had to
be perfect. This is only one example of the many
occurrences of perfectionism. I'm also what's commonly
referred to as a "checker." It used to be a lot worse
though; I would check the doors, the windows, the
stove, the heater and all the lights in the house
every night several times before being able to fall

OCD and the experience
During the experience, the obsessions that plagued
my mind were completely eradicated from my
consciousness. All that existed was pure thought;
thought that I was finally able to control. It was
very enlightening. Even the 2 trips where I had a
difficult time with the peak were psychologically
beneficial in retrospect. The after effects of the
experience were, to me, the most desirable part of the
trip. This was when, during one of my most recent
experiences, I was able to logically, and
pragmatically analyze the obsessions and compulsions.
It was almost hilarious actually; for once, all of the
obsessions seemed so inconsequential to me.

OCD after using psilocybin
I knew I had OCD long before I was diagnosed with
the medical condition, and long before ever trying
mushrooms. I first noticed a reduction in the severity
of the symptoms of OCD a few weeks after my fourth
experience with some extremely potent P.cubensis
mushrooms. I had consumed roughly 1.7 grams of the
material. The obsessions weren't as repetitious as
they were prior to the experience. I also noticed that
I wasn't checking everything as often; instead of
checking things 5-9 times to satisfy me, I would only
need to do it once. This was when I searched "OCD and
psilocybin" on google and found maps.org.

I would say psilocybin has drastically changed not
only my perspective on life, but the severity of my
OCD symptoms. I still have a few obsessional
problems, but they aren't nearly as bad as they used
to be. Now, it's almost like I only experience
symptoms of OCD when I get nervous; as opposed to the
previous intensity of the symptoms. It seems like
psilocybin reduces the sensitivity of the triggering
mechanism, which is ultimately responsible for
igniting the obsessional behavior. With a pressure-resistant trigger, the bullet isn't going anywhere.
Has anyone here diagnosed with OCD experienced this?
