Study Finds Magic Mushrooms are the Safest Recreational Drug

Recreational drugs are being sold all over the world although most of them are considered illegal. Many governments claim that these drugs can be very dangerous to one’s health. According to studies, more people are killed by recreational drugs than guns and cars. Crystal meth, fentanyl, heroin, and cocaine are considered to be the most dangerous drugs available to man. These kinds of recreational drugs are deadly and can ruin one’s life.

Although alcohol is considered legal in almost all nations, it still considered as harmful or dangerous. Statistics show alcohol leads to over 70,000 deaths every year in the US alone. Marijuana, on the other hand, leads to a lesser number of deaths. In fact, there is no airtight evidence that proves that marijuana or cannabis is indeed deadly.  

There are other recreational drugs that are considered safe. Two of the safest drugs available today is marijuana and magic mushrooms. Marijuana offers a lot of health benefits and that is why the number of countries that are pushing for its legalization has dramatically increased. But despite the many benefits that one can get from smoking or consuming weed or marijuana, it is not the safest recreational drug available to us today. Marijuana or cannabis is not the safest recreational drugs but magic mushrooms.

DEA claims that overdosing of cannabis and magic mushrooms are extremely rare. Deaths generally occur when the user experience dangerous behavior, vehicular accidents, suicide, or the person ate poisonous plant material. A study conducted by the Global Drug Survey revealed that magic mushrooms are indeed the safest of all the drugs. They surveyed over 12,000 individuals who reported that they were taking magic mushrooms. They found out that there is only 0.2% of individuals who need emergency medical treatment after magic mushroom consumption.

Comparing Different Recreational Drugs

Magic mushroom is a less potent drug if compared to LSD. LSD can be very harmful since it can be quite difficult to dose it accurately, especially when it is in tabs. Because it comes in tabs form, taking it too much is easy. Too much LSD is very dangerous and can even kill you. Aside from LSD, researchers also found out the synthetic marijuana or cannabis is also one of the riskiest of drugs. It is reported that there is one in 30 users seeking emergency medical treatment after taking synthetic marijuana.

Adam Winstock, who is an addiction psychiatrist and the founder of Global Drug Survey. Said that death from toxicity caused by consumption of magic mushroom is almost unheard of. Global Drug Survey also found out that among 28,000 who claimed that they have consumed magic mushrooms, 81.7% of them said they experienced moderate psychedelic experience. Although Mr. Winstock did not say that magic mushroom does not come without a risk. Combining it with alcohol can be very harmful to the individual. Also, it is not advisable that one consume magic mushroom in an unfamiliar setting since this can cause panic, confusion, injury, disorientation, and fear.

Science has proven that dried shrooms or magic mushrooms are also effective when it comes to treating severe anxiety and depression. The best thing about magic mushroom is that individuals don’t tend to abuse them. This is because people don’t get dependent on psychedelic drug abuse. They also don’t destroy your health or make your system rot. But instead, magic mushrooms will give you a deeper, profound, and positive insight into life. So long as you know how to take the right amount.

A research paper that was conducted back in 2016 surveyed 2,000 people. They were asked about their most challenging experience after taking in shroom or magic mushroom. The paper reported that there were 7.6% of individuals sought for medical treatment after experiencing psychological symptoms and only 2.7% of that group received medical help. The good news is, 84% of these individuals claimed that they have benefitted from the experience of taking magic mushroom.

The results did not surprise the researchers since there were already research and statistics that proved how safe magic mushrooms are. Numbers don’t lie. Global Drug Survey also highlighted that taking in magic mushrooms can make you feel great about your surroundings and the people around you. Magic mushrooms are unlike any other recreational drugs. They offer myriads of benefits that can make a person more appreciative of life, love, and peace.

Mr. Winstock claimed that there is no known lethal dose for pure magic mushrooms or psilocybin mushrooms. Now, if you are planning on consuming magic mushrooms, then it is important that you do some research on it first. Make sure that you know what kind of species of magic mushroom that you are takin. It is also vital that you know what to expect after taking magic mushrooms. You need to be in a good mood when taking shrooms and make sure that you do not overthink. Stay calm because magic mushrooms are the safest recreational drug out there.
