Glossary Term: Hallucinogenic Mushrooms

The name commonly given to psychoactive fungi, containing hallucinogenic compounds, most commonly psilocybin and psilocin. At low doses, hallucinogenic drugs have as their primary effects perceptual distortions and alterations of thought, or mood, with the presence of lucid awareness and minimal effects on memory and orientation. Note that some prefer the term “neurotropic” instead of hallucinogenic to more accurately define the causative effects of certain fungi (i.e. species in the genus Psilocybe, etc).
