Did You Know Magic Mushroom are legal to cultivate and Consume in Brazil?
Although research into psychedelics have been popular in the past, magic mushrooms are now illegal in most countries.
In my earlier years, I took magic mushrooms to investigate the effects related to our mental well-being and the effects it may have on our daily life.
It wasn’t my first encounter with shrooms. I had taken it before for other reasons but that’s another story haha.
And so… my pursuit of knowledge is what brought me to Brazil.
Did you know that it is actually legal to cultivate, consume, and even sell magic mushrooms there.
It was a big leap for me at the time.
I was definitely nervous at first and sometimes I may have regret my decision, but after everything–I have to say that it is one of the best experiences of my life.
Brazil is beautiful.
Envision a forest, filled with vibrant colors and the tranquil sounds of the wild. As you go further in, you can’t help but feel all the negativity in your life being released as mother natures envelopes you in her embrace.
My trips on magic mushrooms in the south were amazing. My experiences there made me realize that the place and setting really affects how much you can benefit from Psilocybin.
The Magical Chemical
A lot of people don’t know but there are many different kinds of magic mushrooms. To date, there are noted to be over a hundred and eighty species of mushrooms that contain Psilocybin.
What is Psilocybin?
Its the good stuff.
The special sauce you add for the kick.
What we Know about Psilocybin
When Psilocybin is ingested, it is converted in our bodies into cinesín which is classified as a psychedelic.
Psilocybin has an effect of increasing communication between different regions of the human brain allowing people to think at more complex levels.
They intensify a persons thoughts and emotions making them either happy and euphoric, or distraught with self doubt and paranoia.
However the result may be, many people still note their experience to be highly meaningful and these cases have shown to have long lasting affects on their mentality.
Unfortunately, for reasons unknown to me, Psylocybin has been classified as a schedule one drug and has been since the 1970’s.
Over the last few decades, research and clinical trials have shown Psilocybin to be one of the least harmful drugs. In addition, chances for drug abuse are highly limited as it was found that the human body builds tolerance to Psilocybin extremely fast.
Compared to other recreational drugs, they are the least destructive by far!
That comparison is made with many popular recreational drugs such as the most globally legalized drug–alcohol.
Now there’s more to it then that.
Past research and clinical trials have also been shown in many cases to help people suffering from depression and addiction. Through administering psychotherapy with assistance of psychedelics, many severe cases had positive results that lasted up to 14 years.
Don’t get me wrong. There are risks involved and most of these things happened in a controlled environment with trained professionals.
This brings us to a concern I have which is also the main topic….
If you don’t know what you’re doing, you probably shouldn’t do it.
First Time Experience with Magic Mushrooms
Magic mushrooms have been gaining some notoriety as of late. Cases of someone having a seriously bad trip and doing something crazy high on shrooms is nothing new.
The thing is, most of these cases could be avoided completely with a few simple safety measures. A lot of these cases are from people not doing their due diligence.
If you’re about to down 5 grams of shrooms, you really should know what you’re getting yourselves into.
Don’t jump the gun.
Maybe you’re with people and you’re being pressured to do it with them. It doesn’t matter.
Whatever case it may be, don’t do it. They’ve done it before–you haven’t.
That nervous feeling you have?
Listen to it. Being nervous is nothing to be ashamed of.
In fact, it is a self-defense instinct that you should really put more thought towards. This is your bodies natural instincts telling you that trouble is right around the corner lol.
This is normal.
It doesn’t matter who you’re with or where you are, take a bit of time and get away from the crowd. Tell them you need to go to the washroom or something.
Whatever you can think of–just get yourselves a few minutes alone.
This is the best advice I can give. I found that this applies to many situations in life. I’ve told this to many people in many different circumstances and there’s a reason I do.
Always know what you are getting into!
When in Doubt…
When in doubt, ask big brother Google.
He will always be there for you and he will always answer your questions.
This relates a little bit to what I mentioned earlier about place and setting.
If you have something nagging you in the back of your mind, and it is making you worry about this and that, you are not going to have a very good experience.
You know… those worries and concerns you had before… they won’t suddenly disappear after you pop a wad of shrooms you know.
Don’t do Magic Mushrooms when You’re Already Tripping Out
As Psilocybin is known for intensifying thoughts and emotions, this might lead to self-doubt, which may lead to paranoia, which may lead to you running outside screaming for help.
What I’m trying to say is that you should clear your mind of worries and put yourself in a good mindset. I can promise that you will have a much better time.
Read a bit into harm reduction, how to dose responsibly, the effects and how long they last. After you have done this, I can guarantee that your nervousness will be blown away.
Do the due diligence and find out what you’re getting yourself into.
This is very important!
You have learned about responsible drug usage and know how to dose properly. You even have a few safety measures ready in the back of your mind.
You know what to expect.
The world is at your feet and you are ready for anything.
With confidence, you look Sensei Sam in the eyes.
He nods back at you with the same serious face.
Nothing needs to be said.
