Are Chestnut Mushrooms psychedelic mushrooms

No, chestnut mushrooms are not psychedelic. They don’t contain any psychedelic compounds such as psilocybin, which are found in certain species of mushrooms like Psilocybe cubensis (magic mushrooms).

When ingested, psilocybin is metabolized in the body into psilocin, which acts on serotonin receptors in the brain. Psilocybin can induce a range of alterations in perception, thoughts and emotional experiences including euphoria.

Chestnut mushrooms are edible with a robust flavor and are widely used in savory dishes. Their flavor truly stands out when gently sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with fresh thyme or rosemary, garlic, and a sprinkle of sea salt.
