In my opinion, Verapamil and other calcium channel blockers will most likely not interfere with the effects of psilocybin or other hallucinogens. I am aware of no clinical studies that address this issue, but since calcium channel blockers seem not to interact with cafergot or sansert or any of the various triptans, I think it very unlikely that there would be an interaction with psilocybin.

On the other hand, I have to admit that I once mistakenly held the opinion that Lithium would BLOCK the effects of hallucinogens, rather than ENHANCE them, so don't make your decision based solely on my advice.
