Not all psycho active shrooms contain Psilo. Some contain muscrine instead. Although they still have an 'effect' I don't know if they are of theraputic value, and what's more they are decidedly more dangerous. This type belongs to the Amanita family. Other members include 'Death Cap' and 'Destroying Angel'. Their names aren't a 'Little John' type joke. These mushrooms are often/mostly fatal. The psychoactove versions are less dangerous but can still kill you. Do not take them.
The cheif culprit is 'Fly Agaric' or Amanita Muscriana. It is large with a thick white stem, and a large red cap that is covered in white crusty spots. Some are yellow instead of red, some are orange. They are the stereotype fairy toadstool. A while ago I posted a caution that many poisionous mushrooms could be mistaken for psychoactive ones. I believe I also mentioned these. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION BEFORE SOMEONE DIES!
