Although there are no major studies proofing the effects of magic mushroom on heart. However there have been case reported showing cardiac Arrhythmias in individuals using magic mushroom.

Same goes with it’s psychological effects also. So as a clinician it’s not advisable to use these mushrooms when you are genetically susceptible for psychological issues.
