Psilocybin is the active chemical ingredient found in a “Magic Mushroom” that gives it psychoactive properties, that commonly result in the user having hallucinations and an altered mood state for a temporary period of time. Psilocybin naturally occurs in magic mushrooms and is therefore considered a safe alternative to many artificially synthesized chemical stimulants, with relatively low risks. With the advancement of research into psychedelic medication and stimulants, more people are looking to get into learning more about the medical benefits that come from consuming Psilocybin in the form of capsules, and its role in helping people suffering from depression, anxiety and emotional turmoil.
Psilocybin is a psychedelic chemical that is a part of the family of hallucinogenic tryptamines. The chemical name for Psilocybin is 4-phosphoryloxy-N, N-dimethyltryptamine. There are over a hundred types of “magic” mushrooms that contain Psilocybin, and these have been known and used from the past three thousand years. When this substance is ingested into the body, it is converted to psilocin which is the active chemical that causes hallucinations.
The potential health benefits that can come from the use of Psilocybin capsules are huge. It can be used to treat depression, drug addictions, obsessive-compulsive disorders, headaches and other psychological related illnesses. The effect of psilocybin on the brain is still being studied by researchers as it works in a complicated way to bring about the effects that it does. There is also a case for taking micro-doses of this psychedelic substance, which bring about drastic changes in the overall life patterns of the users, and this is being studied by researchers as well.
The way this chemical works on the brain is that it brings about the effects of hallucinations, euphoria and an altered emotional state generally referred as a “trip” by switching on serotonin receptors in the brain, while also activating the pathways of dopamine as well. This results in the brain going into an emotionally “high” state, and can bring about altered visual and auditory feedback, elevated heart rates, pupil dilation and other similar effects. Psilocybin also has some permanent effect on the brain by altering neural connections and creating new ones, which increase the plasticity of the brain – but this generally happens over a long period of time, and with increased doses of Psilocybin.
Magic mushrooms can be consumed in several ways. They can be eaten directly in their raw form – but this is not recommended for first time users or for people who do not like the strong earthy taste that comes because of the Psilocybin content in the mushroom. It can also be made into a soup or brewed into a tea, which makes it much more palatable for people to try out. But for complete ease of use as well as for a regulated dose of Psilocybin, it is advisable to try Psilocybin mushroom capsules, which are much more palatable and can be easily taken. With the advent of internet stores, it is easy to find a reputable dealer to buy psilocybin online. Being a naturally occurring substance, there are very few side effects to deal with, making this a great option for therapeutic usage.
