Psychedelic substances have been enjoying a growing public interest lately. Even if they are not legal, more and more research reveals that they may have surprisingly positive effects in treating certain medical conditions, such as severe depression.
On the other hand, Psilocybin is banned for a very good reason: it produces hallucinations, and, if used as a drug, it can induce sinister experiences and states of mind. Given that Psilocybin is banned, you may wondering where do mushroom spores come from? Hidden Forest Mushroom Spores provide magic mushroom spores (legal in some states) so that more research can be done.
In a recent study, a team of researchers at the Johns Hopkins University of Medicine interviewed almost 2000 people who had “challenging psychological experiences” (i.e., bad trips) after consuming magic mushrooms. In an online questionnaire, participants described their trips, assessed their experiences, and discussed the adverse psychological and emotional effects.
After analyzing the information, the researchers were able to identify seven distinct qualities that bad trips have in common: fear, suffering, disorder, insanity, isolation, death, paranoia. Then they studied each factor in correlation with the others, and that’s how the “Challenging Experiences Questionnaire” came out.
Frederick Barrett, a co-author of the study, also wants to know whether there is a risk personality profile for a bad trip. By drawing correlations between bad psychedelic experiences, Barrett hopes to find the answer to this question and improve the study’s conclusions.
