And the week after I dropped acid for the first time which was a very unwise thing to have done. We went for a walk in a park this was in the evening.
We went on a walk through the park and one of the friends that I was with got paranoid because she saw a car in the car park and she was sort of getting scared that the police were going to come and get her which is fairly common kind of delusion, I guess. And that paranoia sort of built up between the three of us and we all headed back to my house. But she carried on being anxious and I picked up on that really strongly and started having a bad trip too. At one point I was in my room looking for something and the others were in the living room. I heard them talking really loudly about me, in really negative ways, and that didn’t seem right, it seemed unlikely – but it made me feel terrible. So I went to the living room and hovered outside the door to hear what they were saying and they stopped. So I went back to my room and they started again, but very loud. And I realised that to hear them that loudly in my room they would have to be shouting. I went to speak to them and they told me that they hadn’t been talking about me. And then I realised I was just hearing voices, having paranoid delusions.
But I think those tears, well, I’d just broken up with my ex that day so I think that was coming out too. It was a stupid idea to take acid right after a breakup! The next week I was in a much better place, so we did it again. And it was an absolutely wonderful experience this time. We went to a park, and we spent the entire day in the park sitting looking at nature and we just had a wonderful, wonderful time. We felt happy and euphoric and it was amazing to just sit and look at the grass and ponder the world. So it was a very different experience and a much, much better one. Magic mushrooms (aka ‘Shrooms) are mushrooms that grow in the wild. There are two main types and they’re quite different. The most common form is a species called psilocybe semilanceata or ‘liberty cap’, while the other more potent variety is amanita muscaria or ‘fly agaric’. There are deadly poisonous species of amanitas, so if you don't know what you're doing, you definitely shouldn’t take them. Magic mushrooms are eaten on their own raw or dried, in food or made into a tea. The effects depend on the number of mushrooms taken. They produce similar hallucinogenic-type effects to LSD but for a shorter time. The Scientific Difference Between LSD and Magic Mushrooms. Hallucinogens are a wide group of drugs with a diverse range of capabilities. Some have been proven to alleviate ailments like PTSD and anxiety; others will definitely make you crap your pants while thinking your roommate has turned into a giant crane. The two most popular hallucinogens are magic mushrooms and LSD, technically known as lysergic acid diethylamide. While they have similar effects, both drugs have enough differences between them that any potential user should be less than chill about considering them the same. HereвЂ™s the science you need to know to understand how LSD and magic mushrooms affect the body in their own, trippy way: Magic Mushrooms Are Natural, LSD Is Not. While LSD was invented in 1938, mushrooms containing the naturally occurring psychedelic compound psilocybin can be found in regions within South America, Mexico, and the United States. ItвЂ™s estimated that there are over 200 species of psychedelic mushrooms. People dose on the drugs like they would with other naturally-sourced food вЂ” by brewing the mushrooms into a tea or eating them raw or dried.
LSD was synthesized by Swiss scientist Albert Hoffman, who later famously took the drug himself and went on a bike ride on April 19, 1934. The clear, odorless, and tasteless drug is made from lysergic acid, which is found on fungus that typically grows on grains. So, while itвЂ™s purely synthetic, how it acts mimics the biological activity of the fungus it was derived from, making LSDвЂ™s structure similar to psilocybin, also found in fungi. This drug is typically swallowed as a pill or a liquid, or absorbed in the mouth through a piece of paper (tab) soaked with the drug.
Both Drugs Trip Out the Brain, but One Lasts Way Longer. Magic mushrooms and LSD involve chemicals that bond with the brainвЂ™s serotonin receptors. When someone takes LSD, their sympathetic nervous system is stimulated, which causes a rise in blood-sugar levels, an increase in body temperature, and pupillary dilation.
