What Do Psychedelic Mushrooms Look Like?
There are over 90 different known varieties of psychedelic mushrooms, with common street names including “psilocybin mushrooms,” “shrooms,” and “magic mushrooms.” Two of the most common varieties are the Psilocybe Cubensis, with a long stem and golden semi-hemispherical cap, and the Liberty Cap, sporting longer stems and a light brownish yellow conical cap. When purchased, mushrooms often lose these appearances and instead appear brown in color, due to the fact they are usually already dried. Sometimes, psychedelic mushrooms are ground up into a powder for consumption. Even when dry, these drugs have an identifiable scent not unlike the one associated with everyday mushrooms used in cooking.
