A trip through the garden episode 2: Magic Mushrooms

Mar 15, 2018

Magic mushrooms are hallucinogenic mushrooms that occur naturally in the environment.  In Queensland, the two most common species of magic mushrooms are Psilocybe cubensis ("gold tops") and Copelandia Cyanescens ("blue meanies"), and they appear during the summer months following heavy rain. In this video, episode 2 of "A trip through the garden: short guide to plant based substances" Dovetail's own Cameron Francis explains these two species of mushroom, and describes some of the effects of the active ingredients - psilocybin and psilocin, as well as some of the potential risks associated with the use of magic mushrooms.
