What are Psilocybin Mushrooms?
Psilocybin mushrooms are most commonly known as “magic mushrooms”. They are naturally occurring and can be found all over the world. Psilocybin works by binding to receptors for the neurotransmitter, serotonin. It has also been linked to increased synchronicity. Research has shown that when micro-dosed the effects can be subtle, yet profound. Whether it dresses you in warm conversation followed by a long evening stroll hand in hand with your ever-present inner self, or takes you breezing down a field of fuzz gifted to your skin by the reachable constellations, there are different characteristics to every mushroom. You can dignify these different traits by their outward appearance, effect, duration, potency and growing process, making it easier to find the right strain for you, or perhaps just which one you’d like to try first.
