Mushrooms and cannabis both are intoxicating substances. But these are different from each other. First, mushrooms were used as a therapeutic substance, and cannabis was used in various medical activities under extreme guidance. Then, various legal measures came which restricted the use of cannabis and mushroom.
Till the recent time, both of these were actively mentioned in the music and entertainment industries. But after the legalization actions and other restrictions, cannabis and mushroom use became very different. Although both substances show quite a similar behavior still both of these have different behaviors and interactions. In this blog, we will understand the other behaviors and interactions of mushrooms and cannabis. So let’s begin the comparison.
Effects of Cannabis
The intake of cannabis causes various effects on a person. However, the effects can vary depending upon the multiple factors. Like the amount or potency of the cannabis determines the intensity of its impact. The method used for consumption also tells the effective results. The frequency of use also plays a crucial part. It is because a higher frequency of use makes the body habitual for small doses. If smoking or vaporization form of intake is used, then it determines better effect or consumption results. The intake goes and shows its effect in one hour. The effect prolongs till 2 hours, as stated by Drug Policy Alliance. Compared to vaporization, the edible forms take longer to show their impact, around 30 to 60 minutes.
The effect of cannabis consumption varies from individual to individual. The drug shows a more calming sensation for some people, while it provides a more attentive impact. If we talk about physical effects, it exhibits dry mouth, euphoria, anxiety, paranoia, increased appetite, intense sensations for colors, smells, vision, etc.
Effects of Mushroom
If we talk about the hallucinogenic mushroom, then there are various species of it. Most of the intoxicated mushrooms contain a component called psilocybin. It is found mainly in Psilocybe cubensis, which is a species of mushrooms. Hallucinogenic mushrooms block the mind. The process to eat mushrooms involves eating them after drying. They can also be ideal in teas or added to chocolates after making a dried powder of them. They take one hour around time to show their results on the person—the duration of their effects ranges from 4 to 6 hours.
Cannabis and mushroom
The effect of cannabis and mushroom holds different intensities. As a result, both show their effect on the human mind but with a different approach. Moreover, the type of mushroom or strain of cannabis also makes a difference in their effects. For example, high-THC strains produce similar results as a mushroom.
If you take cannabis and mushroom together, then they produce different results. Like if you mix CBD-rich cannabis with mushrooms, then it will help in decreasing anxiety and nausea. On the other hand, combining THC-rich strains of cannabis with mushrooms will create an intense trip resulting in creative visions and hallucinations.
