In general, a magic shroom trip lasts between 3 and 8 hours, although it can go up to 12 hours in some cases. Some after-effects can last for the following 24 hours. The quantity of consumed shrooms affects the intensity of the trip rather than the length.
Fresh magic mushrooms must be consumed quickly, but dried shrooms can be stored. The most important thing is to keep them cool and dry. Store them in measured doses to avoid opening a bulk container too often, and place the doses in a jar with desiccant.
Shrooms must be taken orally, although there are different methods to ingest them. Often, they are simply eaten whole. They can also be cooked, powdered and sprinkled over food, put in capsules or chocolate, infused in alcohol, or brewed as tea.
Psilocybin is the hallucinogenic compound present in magic mushrooms that causes trips. It’s converted to psilocin by the liver when ingested, which in turn affects the serotonin system in the brain and the gut, and modifies the connectivity in the brain. You can find more info about the chemical composition of magic mushrooms online.
Dried magic mushrooms’ taste can be particular, but it’s possible to customise that taste by turning them into a flavourful tea. Just pour boiling water (1 cup of water per 5g of shrooms) over the chopped mushrooms, let them brew for 10-15 minutes, then strain. You can add honey, a teabag, or other ingredients to your taste.
A successful shroom trip has physical effects, such as increased blood pressure and body temperature, loss of coordination, giggling, and nausea, as well as psychedelic effects, such as euphoria, hallucinations, boost of creativity, disconnection from time and/or reality, out-of-body experience, synesthesia, paranoia, distraction, and nervousness.
After a successful trip, a general feeling of wellbeing can be felt for several weeks. However, too frequent consumption can lead to adverse effects, such as high blood pressure, racing heart, shaking, poor coordination, loss of touch with reality, and psychological addiction.
The dosage depends on three factors: the species, the desired intensity of the trip, and whether the shrooms are fresh or dried. Some species contain more psilocybin than others, and it’s much more concentrated in dried mushrooms. Magic mushrooms sold online should come with a recommended dosage.
It’s very difficult to fatally overdose on magic mushrooms. However, with the wrong dosage, it’s possible to experience a bad trip with some scary side effects, such as intense paranoia, fear, vomiting, increase heart rate and body temperature, confusion, and psychosis. Be sure to respect the recommended dosage.
Mushrooms are taken orally, so they must be digested before the effects can kick in. Although it can vary, depending on whether you have eaten or not, you can feel the first effects around 20 to 40 minutes after ingestion, and the trip should take full effect within 2 hours.
It depends on the type of test. It usually stays in the urine and the blood for about 24 hours. However, like many other substances, it can be detected in the hair for much longer. Like marijuana, shrooms can be found in hair follicles for up to 90 days.
Some consumers have described their experiences as flying, seeing the world through someone else’ eyes, seeing a new world, a feeling of connection with the universe and the merging of self and others, tasting sounds and hearing colours, floating out of one’s body, and feeling generally happy.
Magic mushrooms are not yet legal to the general public in Canada. However, in recent years, the government has begun granting exemptions to terminal patients, medical and mental health professionals, making a big step in the direction of a more general legalisation.
The easiest option is to get the magic mushrooms online. More and more websites specialise in this type of products, making shrooms quite accessible to consumers. However, be careful to choose a reputable website, as the product quality can have a big health impact.
Unlike many drugs, shrooms are not considered physically addictive. The body does not crave another dose. However, tolerance to psilocybin can be built quickly and the psychedelic effects can make the user lose touch with reality or experience a period of psychological withdrawal.
