What Exactly Qualifies A Mushroom To Be Considered Magical?

So, what are the exact properties that make certain mushrooms qualify as "magic"? The types of mushrooms that contain psilocybin are most commonly referred to as "magic mushrooms." Canadian dried magic shrooms are one of the oldest recreational drugs ever consumed by humans, and what's even more amazing is that they are still actively consumed today! 

Mushrooms if you will, have been mentioned throughout the history of civilization through ancient cave paintings, manuscripts, and constructions. They continue to be mentioned in pop culture, music, movies, and many books. Several recent studies not only suggest but also prove that magic mushrooms that contain psilocybin may also have beneficial healing properties.

Magic mushrooms are often small and usually range in colour from brown to brown to golden cream. At first glance, the magic mushroom, or psilocybe cubensis, doesn't look very magical by its scientific name. 

In fact, the scientific name for this tiny brown and white mushroom roughly translates to "bald", which is in keeping with the mushroom's more common appearance. But those who take a dose of Psilocybe Cubensis say it has literally changed the consumer world. Psilocybin is most commonly found in wild or house mushrooms and is sold fresh or dried. 

In the wild, people often confuse magic mushrooms containing psilocybin with various other poisonous mushrooms. Therefore, it is important to familiarize yourself with the fungus and identify it correctly.
