Magic mushrooms, mushrooms, caps, god meat, golden teachers etc. these are all the names for psychedelic mushrooms, especially those that contain psilocybin. The legendary fly agaric toadstool or fly agaric (the mushroom Alice in Wonderland) is a different type of hallucinogenic fungus, but they contain a different compound called muskimol, which we will discuss in another article.

It is known that about 200 types of magic mushrooms contain psilocybin or psilocin. Perhaps the most commonly consumed types are:
The magic mushroom has likely been used since prehistoric times. Ethnobotanist, psychonaut, and author Terence McKenna invented the Monkey Rock Theory, although it's technically a hypothesis, not a theory.
The record of early human evolution shows a large explosion in brain growth in a relatively short time (1). The rock monkey theory basically says that with climate change and the transformation of forests into grasslands, our ancestors were forced to get off the trees and walk on the ground.
With that comes a new source of food. You will find large, fleshy psilocybin mushrooms that grow from feces and consume them. The massive influx of psilocybin-induced hallucinations may have been a catalyst for expanded awareness and self-esteem, leading to rapid brain development.
Magic mushrooms can be found almost anywhere in the world. Most tropical and subtropical species such as Psilocybe cubensis and Panaeolus cyanescens are found on large herbivorous fertilizer plants, with temperate species such as Psilocybe cyanescens and Psilocybe semilanceata growing in and around rotting trees and grass.
