How do shrooms work?
    #468577 - 11/24/01 08:04 PM (15 years, 12 days ago)

I heard from someone that they cut off the oxygen supply to your brain, and that is how you trip. Are they complete bullshit? Also, how does acid work too? Thanks a lot yall@!!!!!!

even doctors and government agencies admit that shrooms are perfectly safe.
It's when you eat the wrong mushrooms that you in trouble.

Now that's interesting - according to a med student, studies determined that e's were nine times more neurotoxic than alcohol...But psilocybin and LSD are still classed as neurotoxins simply because they have an effect on the way your brain does its business

The mechanism of action (?) of Psilocybin is known (the drug molecule is a modified form of the seretonin molecule, so it acts very strongly at specific types of seretonin receptors (5HT2), more strongly and specifically for those receptors than normal brain seretonin would) however, why this has the intense and profound effects on our perception of reality that it does, is unclear- due to our rather incomplete understanding of the relationship between brain structure and conciousness. I have seen mentioned that this artificial stimulation causes altered rythmic firing of neurons in the brain. In certain types of Epilepsy, characterised by altered rythmic firing in specific brain areas, there are accounts of altered states of conciousness, seeing god, hallucinations etc... Also, i think a lot of the receptors that psilocybin acts on are in the visual areas of the brain, specifically those dealing with edges, lines etc... hence the fractal CEVs etc... Oh i dunno, it's all mad, crazy and very, very interesting. I know a fair bit more and have a lot more ideas than i could write down here though, as me being able to make sense would involve a lot of rambling and waving my hands about furiously. The bottom line is, there is absolutely no way to come up with a simplification of how shrooms work. Last time i tripped i got into a big discussion about all this, had my Biochemistry/ Pharmacology textbooks all spread out all over the floor, lots of frantic gesturing,hand waving, pacing, beard stroking. Great fun ;)

Oh yeah, feel free to ask anything you don't understand... i like this type of talk. And i don't know whether shrooms starve the brain of oxygen, energy etc... but whether they do or not, that's not how they work.

NeiL had it right on the ball, as far as science knows.

Acid works in (basically) exactly the same way as mushrooms do. No, they don't cut off oxygen to your brain (probably increase it, due to a slight raise in heartbeat).

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Don't listen to them.
They're trying to trick you
Yes shrooms cut off oxygen to your brain. This can be fatal if you eat over 5g
Acid makes your brain bleed, that's what make you trip ;o)
Sometimes it'll drip out your nose. In that case you must drink the blood or you wont trip

suddenly a flaming stealth banana split the sky
like one would hope but never really expect
to see in a place like this.
Cutting right angle donuts on a dime
and stopping right at my Birkenstocks,
and me yelping...Holy fucking shit!
