That is a good question! If you’re curious about mushrooms you may have become curious about Psilocybin. When people think of magic mushrooms, Psilocybin containing mushroom are usually what they are referring to. Indeed, Psilocybin containing mushrooms can bring many changes to mind and body. Many effects of Psilocybin are reported to be positive and current research is beginning to point to some of the healing and therapeutic effects of Psilocybin in treating a variety of physical and mental health conditions.
Psilocybin can be found in many types of mushrooms. These mushrooms themselves are not psychoactive but the active compounds in them change into Psilocin once metabolized by the body. It is the Psilocin that produces the psychedelic and hallucinogenic effects. Some of these effects are caused by changes in brain chemistry that replicate the pattern and functioning of neurotransmitters in our brains that allow for improvement in mood, regulation of feelings, a sense of well-being, and connectedness.
