How do mushrooms work?
    #411608 - 10/02/01 06:50 PM (22 years, 6 months ago)

What I'm interested in knowing is how do mushrooms actually make you trip? What kind of chemical reaction does it cause? Any simplified answers woud be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Science doesn't really know.

"Magic" mushrooms contain the chemicals Psilocybin and Psilocin. Both of these chemicals are structurally similar to the brain neurotransmitter Serotonin. The way it looks is that psilocybin/psilocin affect the functioning of the serotonin receptors in your brain, and that makes you trip.

mushrooms produce cyanide naturally. this seeps into your spinal fluid and makes your brain bleed. that is why most of your visuals are a purple/reddish color. and once you trip, you never come down.

Psylocibin (the active ingredient in shrooms) has a similar chemical composition to serotonin and works in these receptor sites. They also reduce the brain filter that screens out information around you and allows you the focus more. Then they cause more neurons than usual to fire off and off you go tripping.....

That's about as simple as I can make it......

If I remember correctly, "these receptor sites" are the 5-HT receptors... at least for LSD-25 and MDMA. Do a search on dejanews.com in alt.drugs.* and rec.drugs.* and you will get some very detailed information.

Speaking of the way mushrooms work, make sure you aren't planning on joining the military ever if you're going to trip, because they do a spinal tap drug test before they let you in, and since acid and shrooms stay in your spine (towards the bottom because of gravity obviously) forever, you can never join the army if you trip.

Also make sure you eat of shrooms in multiples of two, so that your brain stays balanced. If you eat 3 or 5 then you end up with one extra shroom on one side of your brain (usually the right) and this makes you trip harder & longer on one side than the other.

Stay alert, stay safe.

No they don't. Please don't spread misinformation.

No they don't. Please don't spread misinformation

> (towards the bottom because of gravity obviously)

This is just stupid. Study some physics and fluid dynamics and then lets talk.

> Also make sure you eat of shrooms in multiples of two, so that your brain stays balanced.

Do you really believe all of this nonsence, or are you just playing with people here?

You need to be slapped with the sense of humour trout =)

I can maybe understand someone that has no common sense and is easily influenced believing the first paragraph, but the second?

Ah well, I guess no one ever lost money underestimating the lowest common denominator...

Your right though Suess, misinformation is a serious problem with drugs in general. Everybody and their grandma is an expert on drugs and what they do to your body and mind. Thats why there is so many myths around. The only good thing about misinformation is that it stops the mainstream losers who believe that crap from ruining what is, in the case of mushrooms, a magical part of nature.

I don't know what the military tests for, but I do know how they test. They use GC/MS, rather than a simple emit test, which has the ability to detect pretty much any recreational drug (including LSD-25 from urine) assuming they do the test soon enough from the time a drug was taken. I would think they test for more than just two drugs, but I could be wrong. What about amphetamines and opiates for example?

Well... Lemme theorize a bit.

Most stuff that's both Psychoactive and an Alkaloid you can safely call "Neurotransmitter Analogues" or better: KEYS.

Now when some of your neurons/nerves wanna get together to really talk & get things done, they send a KEY to the other nerve's "Receptor" or KEYHOLE, this opens or shuts the lock and that's basically how those 100.000.000.000 nerves you probably have in your head get stuff done.

Now what DOES stuff like LSD do for you? Well: in the sience world there's all this talk of Serotonin this & Dopamine that, but I personally don't think they're the major players.
You see: most Psychoactive KEYS fit into SEVERAL KEYHOLES and the combination of this makes the Drug Effect happen.

I personally think there's a specific, yet unknown KEYHOLE that gets you Psychedelic. I suspect the following: Every night you go to sleep you're transported to a vivid hallucinatory world we call Dreamland. It's also well-known that whatever you dream/write/draw or like has symbolic meaning, and that we may not be aware of even 1% of the brain's business. (Example: how DOES that super basketballer slamdunk it every time? Well: if he really thought it trough how to do it all of his teammates are in the locker-room when he finally knows how. The TOP-basketballer shuts his mind off, lets instinct take over and simply DOES it, and that's basically what seperates the amateur from the pro in every sport... Or: When you're buying an ounce of Hash and a copcar rolls by, you don't crack your head where to hide it, do you? In fact it's three inches up your anus before you had the time to even think one thought, innit?)

I think that getting Psychedelic (partially) dissolves the barrier between the Conscious & the Subconscious, so that all sorts of symbolic stuff emerges on you.
A bit like vivid dreaming whilst wide awake. So stuff that normally wouldn't dawn on you in a million years (like: Mr. Bush is a cool dude) suddenly becomes appearant. This explains the "dogface in the wall", why you suddenly realize your kindergarten teacher was a sadistic bitch and since your Consciousness most of the time does nothing then trying to explain things it can't this is probably responsible for most of the mindfucked and off-the-wall stuff.
But remember one thing: GOD is in there too, as well as Clairvoyancy and all the good stuff we don't understand yet. So don't think that since LSD is just a KEY, everything that happens is hogwash...
On the other hand: most people would benefit from a little more reality-checking, so strive for a balance between the two.

the psilocybin and psilocin affect a chemical located in the frontal lobe called seronotin, the effects of mushrooms can actually be somewhat replicated through imagery meditation using the feeling of spaciousness, dissasociation from the body, heightening of senses, and above all an alert awareness. This meditation not only replicates the mental side of mush but also the physical and visual sides as well. if interested further just private me.
