To experience the effects of psilocybin, the hallucinogen that occurs naturally in magic mushrooms, the mushrooms need to be ingested. In other words, magic mushrooms need to interact with your digestive system for you to experience the effects. Smoking or vaping magic mushrooms will not result in you receiving any effect from psilocybin, and it is somewhat unpleasant. Psilocybin breaks down at high temperatures, so ingestion, of some form, is essential. Drinking tea brewed with magic mushrooms, ingesting liquid psilocybin, or simply eating dried magic mushrooms, are all common ways to consume shrooms. We not only offer raw dried magic mushrooms but also precisely crafted teas and a chocolate bar.
Unlike many tasty foods we consume, eating dried magic mushrooms isn’t exactly the pleasant part of the experience. So here are a few ways of making it more palatable.
Do you like mushrooms on your pizza? Just make sure to add your dose after you’ve cooked the pizza, not before. In a pinch, adding a dose of magic mushrooms to a favourite topping on toast is always a tried-and-true way to consume.
Mixing mushrooms in with trail mix. Recipes which includes chocolate chips or M&Ms, are suggested.
Another consideration is the dose amount and the different experiences that result. For some, the whole point is the hallucinogenic effects, and others may be looking for other levels of effect. There are therapeutic reasons for taking certain amounts that do not produce hallucinogenic effects. By listing the various doses and their effects, we may help you decide which dose is right for you. The Micro Dose = 0.05g to 0.25g Micro dosing involves ingesting small amounts on a schedule to gain positive emotional and mental benefits without the hallucinations. Those who choose to micro dose typically experience the following effects: - An increase in your awareness of and being “tuned in to” your physical body. - An increase in the ability to relate or empathize with others, and an interest in socializing. - A creative boost. An improved ability to think creatively. - A general elevation of mood. A positive outlook. The Mini Dose = 0.25g to 0.75g Mini dosing is a slight step beyond micro dosing. People who mini dose don’t intend to feel any hallucinogenic effects, but they do push it closer to that level. Essentially, you should expect to feel a more “elevated” experience. Mini dosing should produce these effects:
A distinct elevation in mood, reaching an exciting, albeit mild, euphoria.
The possibility of mild visual hallucinations.
Increased sensitivity to light.
Heightened sensory awareness and a general feeling of connectedness.
The Museum Dose = 0.75g to 1.5g Museum dosing allows the user to venture out and enjoy the effects of psilocybin while exploring the world on the other side of the door, or enjoying the company of friends, instead of staying inside, safely at home. This dose is enough to decidedly notice that you have consumed magic mushrooms and that it has altered your perspective of the outside world. With a museum dose you can expect:
Hallucinations to the extent that your sense of time is altered, fairly odd physical sensations are felt, and visual patterns such as auras can be seen with your eyes either opened or closed.
Light sensitivity due to strong pupil dilation.
An initial rush or peak, before it levels off into the trip.
A fairly significant physical, or body high.
A euphoric enhancement of the senses, and excitement and wonder about the world and your place in it.
The Moderate Dose = 2g to 3.5g Moderate dosing is a bit of a misnomer. If you are a less experienced user of magic mushrooms, the experience may not be all that moderate for you. It is a trip that some may not be ready to take. Moderate dose trips are a definite hallucinogenic experience, and one should prepare themselves for that, instead of getting caught by surprise. This is the classic “through the looking glass” experience. So, find a safe place, If that’s at home by yourself, perfect. If you have a safe beautiful, quiet spot outside, perfect. This dose can last for 6 to 10 hours and also produce the following effects:
A substantial initial peak before settling into the trip.
An amplification of good and bad emotions (experienced “tripsters” fare better here)
A strong physical response or body high.
Challenged by cognitive tasks.
Highly sensitive to light due to pupil dilation.
Decided feelings of euphoria.
Distinct hallucinations that affect the auditory, visual, or general physical senses.
The Mega Dose = 5g +higher Mega-dosing is for experienced consumers, not for people new to the experience and not for the faint of heart. This should be considered the deeper dive, or more of a journey into another reality. This experience tests mental and emotional limits and can last up to 6 to 10 hours. We recommend that you ask a trusted friend to act as a “sober sitter,” someone that can hang out and monitor your well-being. This is a time that you don’t want to be operating a motorized vehicle. Here’s what you have to look forward to:
A high level of sensitivity to light.
A lack of awareness, or sense of time.
Hallucinations affecting your visual, auditory, and other physical senses.
A significant elevation or amplification of emotions, moods, and physical reactions.
Motor functions become compromised.
