Matrix Bar,Magic mushrooms – also known as shrooms, mushies, Amani, and philosopher’s stones – are cultivated mushrooms. These mushrooms contain a psychoactive and hallucinogenic compound called psilocybin, which was first isolated in 1958 by Swiss chemist Dr. Albert Hofmann, who also discovered LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide). Shrooms often look like dried ordinary mushrooms with long, thin stems that are whitish-gray. They usually have dark brown caps that are light brown or white in the center. Dried mushrooms tend to be a rusty color with certain off-white areas.
These magic mushrooms can be eaten, mixed with food, or brewed as tea for drinking. Mushrooms tend to create the strongest high or “trip” when eaten, but the reported poor taste has resulted in thousands of recipes like mushroom chocolate. Mushroom chocolate refers to chocolate recipes that contain mushrooms. Mushroom chocolate bars are especially common shroom-related desserts that make it easier for users to consume them. Despite these new recipes, many users fail to realize the dangers of psychedelic mushrooms. Many users don’t understand their potential for abuse and their ability to affect brain function. People with mushroom dependence often require detox and other forms of care, like our Philadelphia substance abuse programs to recover both physically and mentally.
How Does Magic Mushroom Chocolate Work?
Magic mushrooms are hallucinogenic drugs, meaning they make users see, hear, and feel sensations that seem real but aren’t. Mushroom chocolate, or magic mushrooms, contains psilocybin, which is modified in the body to psilocin after ingestion. Both compounds are hallucinogens that work by promoting a loop of communication between neurons, contributing to neurotransmitter release.
