Research indicates that magic mushrooms have high therapeutic potential but as with every psychedelic substance, you should approach psilocybin with caution.
Although responsible consumption of shrooms doesn’t have any serious side effects, going overboard with psilocybin may result in some adverse reactions, including:
- Bad trip (unpleasant psychedelic experience)
- Psychotic reaction, from acute to persistent
- Lasting perceptual changes in the visual system (they can last from weeks to years)
- Impaired thinking leading to dangerous behavior
