How do Magic Mushrooms make people behave?
Magic mushrooms contain psilocybin, an indole alkaloid that produces mood-changing effects. When ingested, it may create experiences of colors seen as brighter than before. Things distorted or twisted shapes into strange resemblances to original images, and sounds heard subside and become more intense.
Other side effects can include nausea, cramping in the abdomen, and perhaps headaches. And hallucinations-seeing kaleidoscopes of geometric patterns on surfaces with striking color contrasts at nightfall typically occur under the influence. It’s not always safe for someone to consume shrooms without somebody sober present who knows what they’re doing, so some considerations must be addressed first.
The chemical compounds in shrooms are thought to stimulate serotonin production in the brain, which is linked with emotional responses like aggression, bipolar disorder, depression, etc. The neurotransmitter functions as the key that fits into particular receptors on cells that allow for mood regulation, calmness, and happiness.
