For thousands of years, people have used magic mushrooms. There are over 75 subtropical mushroom species. It can be difficult to distinguish between species since many of them look alike. People have been known to eat poisonous mushrooms after mistaking them for magic mushrooms.
The natural, active ingredients in magic mushrooms are chemicals called psilocybin and psilocin. Both of these substances are controlled under Schedule III of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA), meaning activities such as sale, possession, production, etc. of these substances are prohibited unless authorized for a clinical trial or research purposes under Part J of the Food and Drug Regulations. Psilocybin and psilocin are hallucinogens that produce effects similar to LSD. Therefore, individuals using magic mushrooms experience hallucinations and an altered state of consciousness. Effects appear within 15-45 minutes and usually last for four to six hours
