Mushrooms are fungi with a network of root-like fi laments growing underground, and joined above ground by a stalk to a cap. The cap has a skin on top and gills underneath, from which are released spores.
The hippies rediscovered hallucinogenic mushrooms in the 1960’s renaming them ‘magic mushrooms’ – or ‘shrooms’ or ‘mushies’ for short. They have remained relatively popular ever since but have thankfully lost much of their pseudo religious hippy mysticism. Having said that, it must be pointed out that some New Age writers and philosophers claim magic mushrooms were brought to Earth by intelligent aliens in order to accelerate human evolution.
There are over a hundred different species of hallucinogenic mushroom, some of which have different varieties based on country of origin (e.g. Mexican, Colombian). Many grow wild in Britain, while others are cultivatable indoors. It is not possible to identify them all in this short leaflet, so we will focus on the five types which are most commonly sold and used here. These include two native species; Liberty cap and Fly Agaric and three foreign mushrooms, namely: Cubensis, Hawaiian, and Truffles. Anyone intending to try other types should get a mushroom identification guide book (or use the internet) and learn to identify them accurately before picking and eating any.
Magic mushrooms stay fresh for 5-10 days, particularly if they have a low water content and especially if kept chilled in the fridge. After this, to prevent rotting, they have to be dried, frozen or otherwise preserved. They will last several months to a year if frozen, but totally drying the mushrooms allows them to last indefinitely.
In a magic mushroom trip, your mood, previous experience and personality, along with where it takes place have a major influence over what kind of trip you have. Dose is also critical, with full-blown hallucinations usually requiring higher doses. One magic mushroom trip differs from another as much as the effects of one drug differs from another. On the same trip, you can feel like you are sharing your friend’s experience one moment, and then be in a world of your own moments later. The main thing to remember is that tripping is an active experience, not a passive one. In short, it’s not like going to the cinema, paying for your ticket, and watching a specified movie. A useful metaphor to help you understand this point is to view tripping as like getting on a horse and going into a strange landscape.
Why buy magic mushrooms?
Psilocybin that is obtained from magic mushrooms, is said to have potential to treat many psychiatric and behavioral disorders. A recent research has shown that there is a wide range of behavioral disorders that can be treated using magic mushrooms.
By using psilocybin you can achieve inner peace, spiritual awakening and euphoria.
Jesse Lawler from Smart Drug Smarts says, “Hallucinogenic demonstrates to you that there is more than one method for seeing the world.”
Terence McKenna, a well-known psychedelic barnstormer said: “At the point when we search inside ourselves with psilocybin, we find that we don’t need to search externally towards the vain guarantee of life that circles far off the stars, so as to in any case our enormous forlornness. We should search inside; the ways of the heard lead to close by universes loaded with life and love for mankind.”
At trippy land, we want to make a contribution to the world that is positive and leads to people having broad minds that would result in more creativity and to find out what this world has hidden in it for you.
