Shrooms is a slang term referring to mushrooms that cause hallucinogenic effects.

Shrooms is a slang term referring to mushrooms that are ingested to get high. The mushrooms contain a hallucinogenic substance called psilocybin. Hallucinogenic drugs change one’s mood, perceptions, and thought processes. The hallucinogenic mushrooms have long, slender, whitish-gray stems with brown colored caps. People eat them, brew them as tea or add to other foods because the taste is very bitter. An average dose is 2-4 mushrooms and experiences last 2-4 hours.
Shrooms Use Signs
A hallmark of shrooms use signs is the detachment from reality and distortions of time and space. A person will appear as if drunk and may talk about what they are experiencing. Other shrooms use signs include:
- Emotional swings
- Feeling separated from one’s body
- Can’t tell real from not real
- Panic or anxiety
- Muscle weakness and incoordination
- Numbness of tongue, lips or mouth
The risk of a “bad trip” is hard to predict, however, the signs are noticeable. Those most likely to have a bad trip are people prone to anxiety reactions without the drug. The person may show signs of anxiety or panic. They may verbalize their fear or act in ways that show they are afraid of something that isn’t there. The only way to stop a bad trip is to let the shrooms run their course.
Long-Term Shrooms Use Signs
While psilocybin mushroom users are at risk of abusing the substance, the risk of addiction and dependence does not exist. Any addiction to shrooms will be psychological, or a craving for the hallucinogenic experiences. Heavy shrooms users, those using them for a long time at high doses, may experience flashbacks. When someone has a flashback, they are experiencing some part of the hallucinogenic effects without taking the drug. This can happen after only one dose.
