Magic Mushroom Dosage Guide

New to Magic Mushrooms, Shrooms, Psilocybin? This guide has all the exact dosages you should take based on the experience you want!

How much Mushroom should I take?

The trick to enjoying Psilocybin Mushrooms is to get the right dosage – having just the right amount can provide a high that leaves you feeling euphoric on a whole new level. The difficulty with reaching this level is that everyone responds differently. So it is very easy for a euphoric high to quickly evolve into a possibly uncomfortable high. Here is a quick guide on how to best consume mushrooms for the ideal high. 

Microdose (0.1 – 0.7 gram)

For some this low dosage might work as a micro-dosing level, but for most consumers having 0.1 to 0.7 grams of shrooms will provide subtle effects that are certainly stronger than any microdose. Taking a dose in this range will provide a boost of creativity and focus. This will be a manageable high that could easily be enjoyed during the daytime. Why should you consider microdosing shrooms?

Mild dose (0.8 – 1 gram)

The next step of 0.8-1 gram is not a big jump but does provide significant effects. At this stage there are many medicinal benefits such as enhancing one’s mood and creativity. This amount will definitely leave someone feeling high, but not too high. This is an ideal dose for helping with depression. Read about how Mushrooms are good for depression.

Moderate dose (1 – 2 grams)

For those new to taking mushrooms but seeking that shroom high – this might be the right dose for you! At 1 gram you will begin to feel the potential that shrooms have. It will be a euphoric high that could lead to mild hallucinations. Many have reported enhanced senses rather than vivid hallucinations. 

Classic psychoactive dose (2 – 3.5 grams)

The more you eat, the higher you are. It is just that simple. At this point taking 2 to 3.5 grams will lead to hallucinations and a distorted state of mind. At 3.5 grams you could experience both auditory and visual hallucinations that many expect from shrooms. 

Strong dose (3.5 – 5 grams)

Going above the standard 3.5 grams can be a tricky area to navigate. As Seth Rogen once explained – when you take mushrooms you are only the passenger in your high. And trust us, once you go beyond 3.5 you will be the passenger on a wild ride! Those who have ventured into this territory have reported strong hallucinations that have had long-lasting impacts like delusions and difficulty facing reality. If you are interested in venturing into the unknown just know that is where you are headed. To the unknown. 

How Long Do The Effects Of Magic Mushrooms Last?

If you are new to mushrooms one really important thing you need to be aware of is the fact that a shroom high can last for a long time and sometimes takes a while to feel. So when taking shrooms you should always start low and go slow! And don’t forget to be prepared for the long haul – get the right activities, the right shows or movies and snacks. All of these things will help improve your high. 

Like edibles, it takes a little bit of time for one to feel the effects of mushrooms. It usually takes about 20 minutes before you feel anything – and some have reported up to 2 hours. With that in mind, be patient as you are consuming because you do not want to end up in territory unknown. 

Once the effects have kicked in – the high lasts longer than any cannabis products. A shroom high will last anywhere between 3 to 6 hours and some have reported feeling effects up to 12 hours later. Make sure that has you go through your high you stay hydrated, rest and avoid any unknowns. 

How To Take Magic Mushrooms

Thanks to the evolving cannabis world – magic mushrooms have also had the chance to have a face lift. Most people, when they think of taking mushrooms only know about eating mushrooms. But there are so many options now! 

Eating Magic Mushrooms

The easiest and most well-known way to consume mushrooms is to just eat them. But this is not an enjoyable experience. Magic mushrooms do not taste good. If you are new to shrooms you will survive your first eating experience, it is the second and third that get tricky! Eating mushrooms is also one of the most efficient ways to get high. The effects are strong and long-lasting! 

Making Magic Mushroom Tea

For those wanting to avoid the actual eating of shrooms, you could try Mushroom tea. Today you can actually purchase premade Mushroom tea, but there is also the option of brewing your own. Whichever you decide, the effects of Mushroom tea are strong, euphoric and without the earthy taste. 

Magic Mushroom Edibles

Yes, edibles technically mean you are eating the shrooms – but this is way better! Now you are able to purchase gummies, cookies, chocolate bars and chocolates with mushrooms. These edibles can provide mild shroom highs with a tasty flavour!

Magic Mushroom Capsules

The final way many are choosing consume mushrooms today is through capsules. These are quite common for those who microdose mushrooms. The capsules provide a quick and easy way to eat a controlled amount of shrooms. If you are looking for more than a microdose you could choose to take 2 or 3 capsules to get a strong shroom high.
