The Dangers of Shroom Chocolate Bars

shroom chocolate bar

Shroom chocolate bars may seem less dangerous than other illicit drugs like heroin or cocaine, but don’t let the candy fool you. Psychedelic mushrooms are not innocent. Magic mushrooms, as they’ve been dubbed since the 1960s, can cause people to experience hallucinations that can put them in harm’s way. Magic mushrooms contain the psychedelic compound known as psilocybin, which is responsible for causing hallucinations. Mind-altering drugs are not new to people, but combining psychedelic mushrooms with chocolate masks their potential dangers.

People who use magic mushrooms regularly are at increased risk of developing a drug abuse problem or addiction. Moreover, these bars can lead to other health problems or cause people to experience accidents involving injuries.

Resurgence Behavioral Health is a well-known addiction treatment center that specializes in the treatment of substance abuse and addiction. If you have become dependent on any drug or alcohol, you can get the help you need. Our rehab features inpatient treatment, outpatient treatment, aftercare, medication-assisted treatment, and dual diagnosis treatment.

Magic mushrooms and shroom chocolate bars are increasing in popularity. Still, users should be aware that psychedelics come with a risk of addiction and can impact a person’s health and well-being. Users cannot be sure if the chocolate they consume contains what it is reported to contain. Many black-market drugs are laced with other harmful drugs to increase their potency. If you are involved in the abuse of shroom chocolate bars, remember that Resurgence Behavioral Health can help you put this dangerous habit behind you.

What Are Shroom Chocolate Bars: Understanding the Trend

Shrooms are not new to the illicit drug scene. Psychedelic drugs have been popular among recreational users since the middle of the last century. Shrooms, or magic mushrooms as they’re called, are not synthetic drugs but are grown just like other mushrooms. The difference is that magic mushrooms contain the hallucinogenic compound psilocybin naturally.

On their own, shrooms have a bitter taste. Pairing these hallucinogenic mushrooms with chocolate is an attempt to mask their unpleasant taste. For many, the chocolate pairing makes the drug more palatable — but not less risky. Shroom chocolate bars remain popular among concert and festivalgoers as magic mushrooms were during the 1960s and 1970s. The latest trend for these mushrooms may have something to do with the legalization of marijuana. Many shroom users point to the fact that magic mushrooms are natural, just like marijuana. However, the compound in mushrooms is not THC and serves no medical purpose. Moreover, many plants are naturally toxic and, therefore, dangerous. Magic mushrooms can pose risks for users.

The Hidden Risk of Consuming Magic Mushroom Chocolate

Chocolate by itself appears innocuous. But how many magic mushrooms does it contain? How dangerous are shroom chocolate bars? The fact is, each person is different. Some people may begin to hallucinate after eating some of a shroom chocolate bar. Others may only experience effects once they eat more than a bar. Consuming any amount of magic mushroom chocolate is considered to be unsafe.

Magic mushrooms, whether consumed alone, in tea, or chocolate (or by any other means), come with a risk for addiction development. Moreover, hallucinogenic drugs are not safe. The mind-altering effects of these drugs can make people a danger to themselves or others. People who are high on shrooms may be at increased risk of slipping and falling or getting injured in some other way.

Resurgence Behavioral Health’s Perspective on Psychedelic Edibles

Like other leading rehab centers and medical facilities around the country, Resurgence Behavioral Health takes a dim view of psychedelic edibles. Shroom-laden chocolate and other psychedelics are simply not safe. Using these drugs is drug abuse. We believe that drug abuse is altogether bad and can wreak havoc on the lives and health of people.

The abuse of psychedelic drugs goes back centuries, but today, we know that the compounds contained in drugs like magic mushrooms serve no medicinal purpose and only come with risks to a person’s safety and health. If you are involved in abusing shroom chocolate bars, it’s important to contact Resurgence Behavioral Health for help. Treatment can help you put drug abuse in your past.

The Impact of Shroom Chocolate Bars on Mental Health

Hallucinogenic drugs can have a detrimental effect on mental health. Some people experience disturbing hallucinations after taking shroom chocolate bars. Some people may experience uncomfortable mental health symptoms like anxiety or depression after taking them. Consuming hallucinogenic drugs can alter the chemistry of the brain. Depending on the dose taken, some effects may be permanent.

Why Shroom Chocolate Bars Are Not Safe Recreational Treats

Since shroom chocolate bars are often sold at recreational events like festivals and concerts, many people might mistake them as something that can’t hurt them. Hallucinogenic mushrooms are not safe for consumption. Taking them in chocolate does not alter the dangers associated with their hallucinogenic compound. Moreover, unscrupulous drug dealers may procure their bars from unscrupulous suppliers. How do users know what’s in them or if the chocolate used to make them is even safe? Magic mushrooms in any form, including shroom chocolate bars, are not treats and should never be consumed as such or taken at all.

Legal and Health Consequences of Magic Mushroom Chocolate

There may be legal consequences for people who are caught purchasing and using psychedelic chocolate bars laced with shrooms. Driving under the influence of chemicals like hallucinogenic drugs is illegal. Purchasing illicit drugs can lead to an arrest. Additionally, there are also health risks associated with using shroom chocolate bars. The mind-altering chemicals that the mushrooms contain can lead to permanent mental health damage. Getting high on shrooms also increases the risk of an injury for users.
