Magic mushrooms, specifically the Psilocybin Cubensis species, are highly sought for their spiritual and therapeutic value. These shroom varieties contain a psychedelic compound known as psilocybin, which activates the brain’s serotonin receptors. These receptors are mainly found on the front side of the brain’s frontal lobe. They are responsible for regulating mood, cognition, and perception.
The psychedelic trip consumers experience is determined by the dosage, consumption history, and the set & setting. There may be hallucinations or not, but one will definitely experience some form of distortion that affects their perception of the environment and the people around them.
Psilocybin Cubensis mushrooms have an estimated 0.63% psilocybin and 0.6% psilocin. Some varieties may have slighter higher potency, while others have a lower percentage of psychedelic compounds. Below is a list of five of the most potent magic mushroom strains.
