…contain psilocin – an indole alkaloid, that belongs to the tryptamines. Psychoactive mushrooms are an integral part of religious ceremonies in some cultures and a tool in shamanic work.
The intoxication begins about 20-40 minutes after ingestion. Although the effect of psilocybin/ psilocin is similar to that of LSD, there are small differences. The phase of getting high is significantly softer on hallucinogenic mushrooms and easier to handle. The so very soft substance inflow makes it possible for a lot of people to get high in a more relaxed and therefore untroubled way.
The duration of the high is at 6 hours somewhat shorter than the one on LSD-25.
Psilocybin/psilocin enables a deep and emotionally oriented exploration of the own inner rooms. It can during the effect of the substance come to increasing and decreasing phases. The physical perceptions change and intensify, thoughts and visions do not follow a linear system and are often full of deep meaning.
Psychoactive substances – like LSD and psilocybin – shouldn’t be taken when alone. Preferably together with people who you trust and know well. Furthermore, the environment should, during the experience with the substance, be quiet and safe. Should it come to uncertainties during the high: keep calm!
Don’t take mushrooms on a full stomach and practice “mental hygiene”. That is, be mentally and physically light and easy-going. If you’re not in a good mood, then better abstain!
The use of hallucinogens (LSD, psilocybin, etc.) should be abstained from at all costs when suffering from common schizophrenic psychoses, epilepsy, manic-depressive diseases and also borderline personality disorders.

Mushrooms can change the view on reality, lead to loosening of boundaries and thus living out sexual fantasies – this involves the risk of abstaining form safer sex, which increases the possibility of transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
Sex and mushrooms only work with mutual agreement and great trust. Specifically with mushrooms there is a danger of having a bad trip.
You should only experience sex and mushrooms together when you know each other and the effect well. Clear beforehand which sexual practices both partners want and which not.
Dose low, so you still can defend yourself and still recognise your partner’s defence mechanisms.
Before getting down to business, get sufficient amounts of sex utensils (gloves, condoms, lubricant) ready.
Pay attention to your body! If you notice any abnormalities, go to the doctor immediately. When having changing sex partners get tested for sexually transmitted diseases every 6 months and get vaccinated against hepatitis A/B.
HIV & mushrooms: take drugs and HIV medicine temporally offset. That may be able to lessen the interaction a bit. Always dose drugs low when taken simultaneously with medicine. The night often turns long – bring enough medicine along and keep your intake times. Talk to your doctor about the interaction between your HIV medicine and intoxicants!
There is no acute threatening interaction between HIV medicine and mushrooms, as the case may be, it comes unwanted intensification of effect when simultaneously taking protease inhibitors and Sustiva – dose low!
