Magic Mushroom (Liberty caps )are usually eaten raw and have a strong earthy taste and rubber-like texture – which makes them very chewy. They don’t taste like the mushrooms you cook at home, and some people try to hide the flavor by putting them in an omelet or tea.
Liquid psilocybin is another way of taking magic mushrooms. It’s made by extracting psilocybin, the naturally occurring psychedelic drug found in mushrooms like liberty caps, and is a clearish pale brown color. It comes in vials (small bottles).

How does it make you feel?
The strength of magic mushrooms varies depending on their freshness, the season and where they grow. It’s very difficult to predict the strength of magic mushrooms.
For most people, the world appears distorted when they take mushrooms. Colors, sounds, objects and even time can all seem very different.
Some people get mild hallucinations, which are also called ‘visuals’.
Taking mushrooms can make you feel:
in awe of the people and things around you
It can also make you feel:
How you feel will be affected by how much you take, your surroundings, who you’re with and how comfortable you are with them, as well as by your mood.
So if you’re in a bad mood, feeling worried or depressed, the magic mushrooms might just make those feelings worse.
How does it make people behave?
This depends on how many magic mushrooms the person takes. If the person takes a small dose of mushrooms you may not even notice that they’re on it.
People who take larger doses of mushrooms can act unpredictably. They can laugh a lot, become fixated on certain things, be emotional or get paranoid.
How long the effects last and the drug stays in your system depends on how much you’ve taken, your size, whether you’ve eaten and what other drugs you may have also taken.
If you feel like you’re having – or are going to have – a bad trip, let your friends know and get their help. Go to a nice quiet spot where you feel safe and can relax.
How long will it be detectable?
Psilocybin is detectable for up to 8 hours.
How long a drug can be detected depends on how much is taken and which testing kit is used. This is only a general guide.
