ShroomsThe term “shrooms” comes from the Psilocybin mushrooms found in nature that produce hallucinations, as well as several other side effects that one would like to achieve. One large problem as to why shrooms are not safe to use is that because they are a wild natural mushroom, there are also several other kinds of mushrooms that also look almost identical to the “magic mushrooms”. People without the right eye for the drugs a lot of the time go out picking the wrong mushrooms which can lead to consuming a poisonous mushroom. This is a problem that can lead to death without a lot of warning, but for avid shroom users, the risks are worth it when they experience the effects of the mushrooms.

Side Effects of Shrooms

These effects usually last roughly three to eight hours and include:

  • Hallucinations
  • Altered time perception
  • Changes in vision
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of abilities to learn short term
  • Possible “bad trip” if the shrooms are taken in a bad environment
  • Short term depression

Other than the short term effects of mushrooms, like all other drugs one should consider the risk to his or her long term health.

Several long term effects that are possible when taking shrooms, including:

  • Panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Paranoia
  • Possible dangerous behaviors
  • Increased risk of anxiety
  • Learning impairment
  • Flashbacks
  • Physical health risks caused by the user

Speak With a Counselor About Addiction

Shrooms are becoming more and more popular throughout America in younger generations every year. Young teens are learning about these drugs through friends, in schools, and through adults, and are trying this drug on their own terms. This problem can lead to addiction which can, in the long term, cause damage to their development and mental and physical health.

If you or your loved one are using mushrooms as recreational, or are addicted, call one of our specialists today.
