The Costa Rican Magic Mushrooms are a delightful strain, originally sourced from the areas surrounding the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica, at elevations of 1000-1200 feet. They’re known to be a little bit tricky to grow for amateurs, as they are not the most robust strain and bruise easily if not treated properly, but a good Costa Rican is a must-try for any mushroom lover. Their thick, twisted stems and more modest, smaller, brownish caps look somewhat unassuming, but a distinguished mushrooms file will definitely appreciate the subtlety of the trip it produces.
How potent is Costa Rican? How should I dose it?
The Costa Ricans are a relatively mild strain, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth checking out. To the contrary, they provide a wonderful sensation of warmness and lightness that floods your entire being and causes you to radiate positivity. These can be a great choice for more social situations, as they tend not to induce the same harrowing levels of introspection as some of its more potent cousins. Light tingling sensations, mild visuals, and a sense of spiritual openness are also commonly noted effects of the strain. We highly recommend this mushroom to anyone looking to dip their feet into the world of hallucinogens, or more experienced users looking for a milder, more comfortable trip.
A 2g dosage should be fine for a beginner to begin acclimating themselves to this strain. Veterans can look to up the dosage to 4-6g, as the feelings of nausea associated with this particular strain are notably lower than most others. Use carefully!
What are Magic Mushrooms?
First, there are two types of mushrooms called shrooms. The kinds you cook with are usually cubed and fried in onions, garlic, olive oil, or coconut oil for cooking dishes like spaghetti sauce. The other type is hallucinogenic mushrooms–having psilocybin or active compounds of psilocybin that have long-term effects on behavior.
Hallucinogenic mushrooms have psychoactive properties. These psychoactive properties can induce feelings of euphoria, relaxed body, heavy limbs, increased appetite, visual alterations consisting of lights and shapes about which one has interaction.
The main effects of magic mushrooms are hallucinations and altered perception, but other effects may include increased heart rate, nausea, vomiting, relaxation, or feelings of great euphoria.
Pronounced psychogenic effects can manifest in many different forms, including perceptual distortion (e.g., objects appearing alive or moving), synesthesia (“hearing” colors or “seeing” sounds), disembodiment, but to name a few. These are classified into two broad categories- entoptic sensations, which reflect the architecture of one’s mind, and dystopian sensations, which result from interaction with the external world. Duration varies depending on the dosage taken; typically 6-8 hours following ingestion for insufflated doses while 10-12 hours for orally ingested doses.
How does Psilocybin aka Magic Mushrooms work?
Depending on the type of mushroom taken, a dose typically lasts around 3 to 8 hours. The effects usually start within 30 minutes and may include one or more of the following changes in mood: a heightened sense of well-being, emotional sensitivity, an altered state of mind. Psychedelic experience typically continues until declining awareness. Hallucinations may occur if a person has closed or covered eyes for a period during an otherwise normal trip. A person’s physical condition plays a role in how they might react to shrooms as some can exhibit adverse reactions such as nausea or panic episodes while others sometimes feel stimulated instead. Experienced users report that once outside influences are eliminated (metaphors), their experiences reveal unmediated insights about themselves.
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.
