Mushrooms (Psilocybin) Addiction

The use of magic mushrooms goes back millennia and has been recorded to some degree throughout the whole of human history in various ways. Psilocybin-containing mushrooms have had a cultural or religious place of prominence in almost every major culture and civilization in human history.

Mushrooms are used to induce a psychedelic trip, which is a kind of psychologically-induced experience of bizarre images and shapes in the field of vision, along with feelings of floating or flying through space. A trip is individually experienced, with no trip being the same, unlike most other drugs. Contrary to popular belief, there is no documented instance of anyone becoming addicted to magic mushrooms.
