The effects can be considered similar to LSD, though still unique and specific to mushrooms. These effects can include:

  • Feelings of peacefulness and unity with their surroundings
  • Intensely spiritual experiences and awakenings
  • Rapid mood changes
  • Derealization, or a consistent feeling of detachment or disconnection from the current reality
  • Depersonalization, or a sense of being disengaged from the people around them 
  • Unfamiliar, irregular, distorted, or new thought patterns
  • Enhanced or intensified visualizations, such as colors becoming very vivid, or halos of light surrounding other people or objects
