Mushroom Experts, I am calling upon you!

2 years, 8 months ago

These are growing in my backyard and I am just curious what kind they are and if they are hallucinogenic or what have you.

Thanks in advance!

Not an expert, but I don’t see any discoloration anywhere, especially the stems, which makes me think they aren’t hallucinogenic, and they are growing in grass.
Of course, I’m unsure though!

@hollowinfinity, Thanks for the response! And yeah, I’m pretty sure they aren’t hallucinogenic but I thought I’d upload them just in case because they’ve been growing on and off for the past year, almost like they want me to eat them :P

I studied mycology for a few months in school and learned that little brown mushrooms, especially with knife-like gills are usually the most deadly. If nothing else, you can keep that little bit of knowledge with you when you find mushrooms

Not a mushroom expert but have done my research. You can never tell without comparing spore prints. IT IS VERY DANGEROUS to eat wild mushrooms. They can cause kidney and liver failure if you miss identify. Please do not eat!

@nothinglasts, No worries. Would never do so even if someone told me they were edible and hallucinogenic, just was curious ha.

I eat any mushroom i come across. :)

Puked a few times, felt fine for the rest. (no one told me you had to BOIL fly agaric :( )

These are NOT psilocybe. These can be eaten though – they usually grow in massive clumps. If in about 2-3 days they turn an oily black they are definitely edible. Yum yum!
