What are Other Names for Magic Mushrooms?

Shrooms are slang for magic mushrooms, but how many different names for Psilocybin are out there?

First of all, let’s make sure magic mushrooms and Psilocybin are understood;

Psilocybin (4-phosphoryloxy-N, N-dimethyltryptamine) and psilocin are chemical compounds obtained from certain types of dried or fresh hallucinogenic mushrooms found in Mexico, South America and the southern and northwest regions of the United States.

Psilocybin is classified as an indole-alkylamine (tryptamine). These compounds are similar to lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD); they are used for their hallucinogenic and euphoric effects to produce a “trip.” Hallucinogenic (psychedelic) effects are probably due to action on central nervous system serotonin (5-HT) receptors.
