One prerequisite is not to grow fruiting bodies in which the substance is already present.
When delivered to the body, this substance is metabolized to psilocin. In terms of chemical structure, it somewhat resembles serotonin, and is characterized by the same distances between oxygen and nitrogen atoms. For this reason, these substances easily localize to serotonin receptors, thereby raising serotonin levels. As a result, they cause specific sensorimotor arousal, and alter the perception of stimuli. The effect of this substance is comparable to some known narcotics, but at the same time less intense. The substance does not cause addiction. Psylocybin has a duration of action reaching about 4-6 hours, with the first perceptible effects occurring in an average of 40 minutes after intake. The higher the dose, the stronger the psychedelic symptoms.

The characteristics of the general disposition or mood at the time of direct consumption are also important. Many cases of unpleasant symptoms after taking too much of the substance have been reported. This includes, for example, disturbing visions, severe anxiety, lowered mood or specific sensory experiences.
Psylocybin in psychedelic mushrooms is illegal in most countries, so it is mainly used to conduct scientific research. Thus, many specific properties of this substance have been discovered.

The substance has also been shown to have an effect on the nervous system, the stimulation of which leads to feelings of happiness and bliss.
