Like LSD, but not quite as potent, magic mushrooms are still a powerful psychedelic. Also known as ‘shrooms or mushies, they are eaten raw, dried, cooked in food or steamed into a tea. Magic mushrooms have a similar hallucinatory effect to LSD, but the trip is often milder and shorter (about four to six hours in length). The danger exclusive to magic mushrooms is that many species of wild growing poisonous mushrooms appear almost identical. There have been numerous cases of users being fatally poisoned or becoming extremely sick when this mistake has been made. But even with magic mushrooms themselves, users often experience stomach pains, nausea and diarrhea. Finally, like LSD and other psychedelics, once the trip has started, there is no going back. Although some users have a safety valve in their consciousness of knowing they are on a psychedelic, others become so disoriented and frightened that the experience becomes a waking nightmare.
