+ Aren’t some mushrooms deadly? How can I identify the ones that are psilocybin-containing?

Yes! People who forage for delicious culinary mushrooms have the same issue. You have to know how to distinguish the desirable ones from toxic look-alikes. Get a field guide or, better yet, find a knowledgeable helper from our local mycological society. When in doubt, don’t ingest!

+ Is Psilocybin Safe?

Some people should not take psilocybin at all. People with serious mental distress should do so only with professional care, if at all. Some licensed therapists will help you with preparation before a psilocybin session and so-called “integration” afterwards, even if their licenses prohibit them from participating in the actual psilocybin session. (See, for example, https://psychedelic.support)

A great resource is Dr. James Fadiman’s book, The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide.

You can find lots of great information on line, too. See, for example, https://tripsafe.org and https://erowid.org

As the author Michael Pollan has said, if you’re going to do this, get a guide (also called a sitter, monitor, or facilitator). A sober guide’s presence gives you a certain comfort and mental freedom. And, if under the effects of psilocybin you start to do something really inadvisable (like drive or wander the streets), your guide is there to help keep you safe. There are professional guides, currently forced underground, who have a great deal of experience and expertise.
