Psychedelics are not new but they are still a little taboo. Artists and musicians have used "Magic Mushrooms" to help with the creative process for years but you may be surprised by which celebrities openly admit to munching some mushrooms.
Over 200 types of mushrooms produce the naturally occurring psychedelic compound called Psilocybin. If ingested, psilocybin causes a chemical reaction that produces hallucinations, a sense of euphoria, and other side effects.
It is still considered a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act and the DEA warns that the drug can negatively affect the body and an "overdose may result in psychosis or death."
Despite the warnings from authorities, humans have reportedly been ingesting psilocybin mushrooms for hundreds of years and many believe there are numerous upsides to eating "magic mushrooms."
