Psilocybin mushrooms, for example, lanceolate mushrooms are psychoactive, hallucinogenic mushrooms. Their amateurs call them psilocybin, hallucinations.

Hallunas, halunks, hallucinogenic mushrooms, psilocybin, magic mushrooms- these are terms for psilocybin mushrooms, used by amateurs of experiments with psychoactive substances. In fact, we're talking aboutlanceolate- the only psilocybin mushroom in Poland. They are small, brown or brown-yellow mushrooms on thin roots, most often growing in places where sheep graze, mainly in the south of the country.
The psychoactive effects of these mushrooms are mainly due to the two chemicals they contain: psilocybin and psilocin.
Action of psilocybin mushrooms
Psilocybin mushroomsrarely causes true hallucinations, but causes visual distortions. The person who ate them may see things that are not there or experience situations that do not happen.
Hallucins have a strong influence on consciousness, because the chemical substances contained in these mushrooms lead to the state of the so-called psychedelic experiences: change the way you see colors, how you feel about time and space.
A single consumption of hallucinogenic mushrooms causes in humans:
- disturbances in space-time perception;
- changeable mood;
- change of thoughts;
- sharpening the senses;
- trigger creativity.
Many factors (too high a dose, inappropriate surroundings, individual predispositions) often cause mental problems.The negative effects of taking psilocin include:
- anxiety and panic attack;
- confusion and loss of control.
Physical effects caused by psilocybin
Similar to psychic effects, the physical feeling after eating mushrooms can be individual. These include, among others :
- desire to laugh;
- slight dizziness;
- contractions of the facial muscles and a feeling of stiffness in the jaw;
- feeling cold;
- stomach ache;
- heart beating faster.
What are the risks of eating psilocybin mushrooms?
Eating psilocybin mushrooms may cause panic or anxiety. Long-term ingestion of toxic substances provoke flash back in some people, i.e. a reappearance of hallucinations up to a week after taking the toxic substances.
In patients with mental disorders or a predisposition to mental disorders, hallucinogenic mushrooms may worsen or even reveal symptoms of the disease.
Important!Under no circumstances should you drive after eating these mushrooms, as it is a direct threat to your life. They significantly slow down the reaction speed and cause distraction.
Are hallucinogenic mushrooms addictive?
Hallucinogenic mushrooms do not lead to addiction, neither physical nor mental. The desire to eat mushrooms often can therefore only be explained by the personality predisposition to achieve a psychedelic experience. However, this carries the risk that repeating eating mushrooms at intervals of several days has virtually no effect, so it makes no sense. Conversely, increasing the dose significantly is dangerous for the body. You should also know that increasing the dose and consuming psilocybin mushrooms regularly over a long period of time lead to anxiety and psychosis in most cases. And when the mushrooms get too strong, a panic attack can occur.
First aid after an overdose of lanceolate baldness
A person who is having a strong psychedelic experience should be reassured and must feel the constant presence of the other person. It is worth remembering your presence by holding a person's hand after eating mushrooms.
If symptoms worsen or do not improve for many hours, see your doctor immediately. Medical management in such a situation includes anxiety therapy and, if necessary, pharmacological treatment. Depending on your individual symptoms, your doctor may decide to give you anti-anxiety or sedative medications.
