Shroom capsules along with other drugs, such as lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and mescaline, are considered “classic psychedelics” because they can induce changes in mood, thought and perception by mimicking neurotransmitters in your brain. Once it enters the body, psilocybin is broken down into psilocin, a substance that acts like the neurotransmitter serotonin, which regulates mood. Shroom capsules is known to activate a specific type of serotonin receptor in the brain that triggers its psychedelic effects, Johnson said.
Shroom capsules hallucinatory effects can cause a person to see images, hear sounds and feel sensations that seem real but aren’t, according to Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. Someone on shroom capsules may experience synesthesia, or the mixture of two senses, such as feeling like they can smell colors. Besides sensory enhancement and visual hallucinations, participants in shroom capsules-assisted therapy sessions have described the drug’s effects as a life-changing experience where they gain deep insight that shifts the way they think about themselves.
