Magic mushroom trip
A guided magic mushroom trip is often referred to as one truffle session or truffle therapy meant. The reason why a lot of people still use the terms mushroom trip or magic mushroom trip is because the same sessions used to be done with the magic mushrooms. These magic mushrooms contain the substances psilocybin and psilocin, but became illegal in 2008. After the ban, the magic truffles remained legal despite containing the same active substances. Popularly, the mushroom therapy so based on the legal truffle. We provide an overview of terms and links to the explanation below.
What happens during the mushroom trip?
The magic mushrooms contain the substance psilocybin. Psilocybin itself has little effect on the brain, but becomes psychoactive after being converted into psilocin by the body. Psilocin is mainly responsible for the hallucinogenic properties of magic mushrooms and magic truffles. A typical magic mushroom trip lasts about 5-8 hours, with the peak of the experience lasting an hour or two. During a mushroom trip, visual and auditory hallucinations, distortions in time and space and intense emotions often arise. At higher doses, people often talk about spiritual experiences. Many people describe their mushroom trip as a profound and transformative experience.
But the benefits of magic mushrooms go beyond the direct effects of the trip. Recent scientific studies have shown that psilocybin can have long-lasting positive effects on mental health. For example, groundbreaking studies from 2014 and 2016 have already shown that LSD and psilocybin improved mood and anxiety, respectively, in patients with various life-threatening illnesses up to a year after treatment. In another study, researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine reported that two doses of psilocybin given with supportive psychotherapy caused rapid and large reductions in depressive symptoms in adults with major depression.
In addition to the potential therapeutic benefits, magic mushrooms can also provide users with profound insights and personal growth. Many people report experiencing a sense of connection to the world around them during their magic mushroom trip. This can lead to more empathy, compassion and understanding.
