Boomers is a slang term for psychedelic mushrooms containing psilocybin, specifically Psilocybe species like Psilocybe cubensis. Consuming these mushrooms can induce hallucinogenic effects including euphoria and visual distortions. While possession of psilocybin-containing mushrooms remains federally illegal, some jurisdictions have moved to decriminalize or legalize access in restricted environments for mental health. With proper precautions, many find magic mushroom trips to be spiritually enlightening experiences that provide fresh perspective. However psilocybin can also trigger anxiety, panic attacks or psychosis in those predisposed, if dosage is too high or set/setting inappropriate, given its powerful cerebral effects.

Mycologists (mushroom scientists) recognize over 180 species of mushrooms contain varying levels of psilocybin and psilocin. But not all “magic mushrooms” are safe to ingest. Proper identification of psilocybin species is vital—accidental consumption of a poisonous lookalike could be fatal. Beyond toxicity concerns, the intense perceptual and cognitive changes induced by psilocybin require thorough mental preparation for a safe journey. With responsible use and dosage, boomers offer a window into altered states. But reckless use risks adverse psychological reactions, especially in those with mental illness.
