HOW SAFE IS IT TO COMBINE WEED AND MAGIC MUSHROOMS?
Some have claimed that mixing drugs is a no go zone. There are stories of users who’ve experienced not just bad trips, but also stints in hospital, and in the worst case scenario – death. Those who are into poly-drug use say that mixing synthetics can be a problem, but it’s a different story when it comes to natural stuff like weed and magic mushrooms. So who’s right? Let’s look at the individual effects of the two to get a better understanding of how they work together.
psilocybin – the active ingredient in magic mushrooms – works by binding itself to receptors in your brain. In this case they are serotonin receptors responsible for the communication between nerve cells.
When you take shrooms, the first feeling is that of a pleasant energy coursing through your veins. Your entire psychological functioning is altered as you go through a transient state between being awake and sleep. You’ll feel an uplift in your mood, clarity in your thinking and a deeper level of introspection.
Once the full effects kick in, about an hour after ingesting psilocybin(mushrooms) you will start to go through changes of perception like illusions, loss of sense of time and synesthesia. Visuals will become more enhanced including seeing things like halos around lights and sometimes even geometric patterns when you close your eyes. As is the case with cannabis, your magic mushroom trip will depend on the dosage and strain you take. Of course, small dosage of either have a different effect than a full dose.
