    I used to live in a region with a big alternative community where magic mushrooms, or "gold tops" were on the daily "menu". I have never heard of people dying from them, but obviously, under the "right" circumstances one can die from anything. Yet, I have come across several cases where people went mad. I personally know of one guy who completely lost his mind after ingesting too many "gold tops". Something in his brain got permanently affected, and he now needs psychiatric care around the clock.

    Shrooms are literally poison, the poison is it's protection against rodents and small animals. Humans are big enough where if we ingest a small amount it won't kill us, but we still feel effects. The high from shrooms is really intense and people can have adverse affects which result in a "bad trip". People can also overdose and die from shrooms if it's overdone.

    I am not really an expert regarding this, but I know that some mushrooms are dangerous to consume/eat because they contain harmful chemicals/content that can be poisonous.

    Are magic mushrooms any good?

    I mean, it all depends on a human being and the dosage. I personally love shrooms, and I took a lot only once. It wasn’t a pleasant experience, but nothing crazy happened. I learned my lesson, and since then, I only took the right dosage for me. I prefer a chill vibe. That’s why I’m more into weed, but I also really love shroom trips every Friday with my friends. We usually order medicinal mushrooms from the inner atlas website and watch trippy Rick and Morty episodes. If you know how to calculate the right dosage, it will be really fun and also healthy; if you are looking for some good and organic mushrooms, then you should check it out.
