Magic mushrooms (also called shrooms) contain naturally-occurring hallucinogenic and psychoactive compounds called psilocybin and psilocin. Shrooms usually come dried or crafted into mushroom edibles.
Shrooms have a long history of use by humans for medicinal, spiritual and recreation purposes. They create audio and visual hallucinations, as well as emotional and euphoric effects. Depending on the dose, magic mushrooms may deliver mellow inspiration, fun adventures, or a challenging personal introspection. The effects of shrooms take effect in about thirty minutes and may last for up to six hours.
