Large survey suggests psilocybin is a “relatively safe” drug, with serious reactions being rare and short-lived
A survey of over 9,200 psilocybin mushroom users found that only 0.2% have sought emergency medical treatment following use.
The most common reported reasons for these adverse experiences were:
- Mixing substances
- Poor mindset
- Poor setting
Additionally, those in the emergency care-seeking group were significantly younger than the group that didn’t seek care, with a median age of 19 compared to 23.
Keep this in mind if you’re considering trying psilocybin!
