Psilocybin mushrooms are known to possess incredibly less toxicity compared to many Other Drugs. Moreover, the death toll is near to none.

It has been observed that since the 1960s to date, the sensationalized coverage of media about psychedelic deaths is misattributed to the role of psilocybin for causing suicides or fatalities in accidents. In some recent outcomes from epidemiological studies revealed a lower amount of mental health disorder and suicide cases among the people who have been using psychedelics such as psilocybin.

A mushroom is known as a ‘magic mushroom’ when it possesses psilocybin in it. Psilocybin is considered as a schedule-I controlled substance. This means it consists of a high potential for abuse. Moreover, it cannot serve any legitimate or positive result for medical purposes.

The risks associated with psilocybin mushrooms are dependent on ‘set’ and ‘setting’. These two are different from other drugs, for instance, alcohol, opiates, and benzodiazepines. The reason for this change of effect is that the mentioned drugs produce expected and known psychological and physical effects.

  • Set refers to the mindset and is the psychological state and beliefs of the consumer’s mind. nd

  • The setting is taken as the environment and people around the person. These are, in fact, the external factors.

In case the effects need to be minimized when experiencing challenging or negative trips, the awareness of psilocybin helps identify the issues occurring related to the set and setting.

What are the risks of ingesting psilocybin mushrooms?

If the psilocybin mushrooms are taken in uncontrolled settings can unknowingly get engaged in reckless acts and behaviors like fast driving while being intoxicated. A considerable number of people may experience distressing and persistent alterations in their way of looking at the world. Generally speaking, these effects are related to visualization, and it may last for weeks or years.

The risk of a condition, physician, calls it Hallucinogen persisting perception disorder (HPPD) – also referred to as a flashback. This can be a traumatic recall of any depressing past moment. This is known as a bad trip and keeps a person disturbed.

More bitter experiences than hallucinations are observed as unpleasant and cause fear, confusion, delirium, psychosis, agitation, and syndromes similar to schizophrenia. The sufferer may need to be taken to the emergency.

In most serious cases, the doctor has to treat the effect of psilocybin with medication like benzodiazepines. The effects of the medicine are usually effective as soon as the effects of the drug vanishes.

Even when the risks are serious, the death toll is less to rare. The symptoms of mushroom poisoning are muscle spasms, delirium, and confusion. A mandatory visit to the doctor is required, once these signs appear.

Psilocybin and other poisonous mushrooms commonly grow in living environments. Therefore, it is important to remove them from the places where children are present to avoid any accidental consumption. However, the accidental mushroom ingestion mostly results in gastrointestinal illness and requires minor treatment.
