What are the effects of shrooms? What can you expect after consuming Magic Mushrooms?
Magic mushrooms are commonly known to induce intense and out-of-this-world experiences.
If you know anything about shrooms,
you would know that a full-out shroom trip consists of intense hallucinogenic effects and mind-altering experiences.
Heavy sensations of euphoria rush throughout the body and reality bend in ways that are hard to put into words.
However, there are different levels of highs that can be reached, and some such as microdosing do not lead to any of the psychedelic effects normally associated with shrooms.
There are also many other things that can influence how the psilocybin found in shrooms reacts to a particular user.
The effects of taking magic mushrooms will largely depend on a number of factors.

First would be the amount of psilocybin taken. In most instances, the more psilocybin in the dose taken, the more intense the effects will be. The second factor determining the intensity of the effects would be the tolerance level of the user. For example, a seasoned shroom consumer who has been taking shrooms every week for the past year would most likely need a higher dose than a newcomer would. Another closely related factor would be the body weight and the metabolic rate of the user. A 300 lb individual would likely need a higher dose than someone half their weight. Also, someone with a higher metabolic rate will likely burn through the high quicker, but the onset of the trip could begin earlier and be much more intense. psychedelic magic mushrooms

What are the different phases of a Magic Mushroom Edible trip?
A typical magic mushroom experience can be broken down into four primary phases. 1 – The first phase is the step of actually taking the magic mushrooms 2 – Next comes the onset of the effects of psilocybin. It is at this stage that users start to notice the effects. It is important during this phase that you do not take any additional shrooms because you think they aren’t working. Give it some time since shrooms are known to take a bit to take effect in many cases. 3 – The third phase is the “high”, and is the main reason why people take shrooms 4 – At the final stage is the comedown. This is the period when your mind and body adjust back to reality. psychedelic magic mushrooms
But what about “bad trips” from taking Shrooms?
With the good comes the bad. I’m sure many of you have heard horror stories when it comes to shroom experiences. The good news is that shrooms are actually deemed relatively safe to humans when taking them responsibly; the keyword being responsible. Normally when negative side effects that lead to bad trips occur, there is overconsumption to blame. Either the user took too much at once, or took an additional dose without giving enough time for the first dose to kick in. To prevent a bad experience, it is important to stick to recommended dosages and to never do heavy amounts of shrooms alone. Reality can become heavily distorted during intense trips, and being alone during these times can be very dangerous.
It is, therefore, always advice to take shrooms in a safe environment, and with others around.
Do Magic Mushrooms interact with other medications?

For example, many psychoactive drugs such as Adderall, Xanax, and Zoloft, can potentially interact with shrooms in a way to make those drugs ineffective.
