    Dosing magic mushrooms: this is how you do it

    If you want to start using magic mushrooms, one of the most important things you need to know is how to dose them. Whether you are going to take dried or fresh magic mushrooms, the amount determines how intense your trip will be. An intense, mind-blowing trip may be what you're looking for, but if it's your first magic mushrooms, it is important to be careful with the dosage. In this blog, you can read all about how to determine your dosage and what the effects can be.


    The mind-altering power of magic mushrooms

    A trip (hallucinations) is caused by a mind-altering substance. There are all kinds of substances that are psychoactive, and some of them can be found in nature. Magic mushrooms contain the mind-altering substance psilocybin. If we want to be precise, it is not psilocybin that causes the hallucinations. It is in fact an inactive ingredient (a precursor substance), which is only converted into an active substance in the body, psilocin.


    When you take magic mushrooms, it is therefore psilocin that causes the trip. But if you want to know exactly how to dose your magic mushrooms, you should look at the amount of psilocybin they contain. However, the tricky thing is that magic mushrooms are a natural product and the amount of psilocybin will vary per species and per individual mushroom. So you can never determine exactly how much of the mind-altering substance is in your home-grown magic mushrooms. At least, not without running a whole battery of tests that can only be done in a laboratory.


    But in fact that is not necessary. We can give an average of each mushroom strain. And with this you will have the necessary tools to determine how many mushrooms you want to take for a mild, medium or heavy trip.

    This is how you can dose magic mushrooms

    Are you going to use magic mushrooms for the first time? Then you have no idea how you will react to this. We recommend starting with caution in that case. Take a low dose to see the effects first. If this went well, and you think you can have more, you can increase the dose next time.


    Also think about what kind of trip you want to have. Are you looking for a pleasant evening with others, do you want to feel relaxed and social, but not completely out of the world? Then it is wise to keep it at a low dose. If you are going for a spiritual quest, if you want to experience the full power of magic mushrooms and discover all sides of the universe, you can take a high dose. Trips like this can turn your life upside down, and it's an experience you won't soon forget. But this is only an option for seasoned cosmonauts, who have used magic mushrooms before. This is not recommended for beginners.


    Make sure you have someone with you who stays sober and who has a tripsitter wants to be. This one will keep an eye on you and help you through a bad trip. How do you approach dosing now? Below you see a recommended amount of dried or fresh magic mushrooms for a mild, medium or intense trip.

    What are the effects of magic mushrooms?

    Magic mushrooms can cause hallucinations. But now you may be wondering about the effects of low, medium or high doses of magic mushrooms. At a low dose (1 gram dried or 10 grams fresh magic mushrooms) the effects will be mild. Even if it doesn't seem like much, this is not microdose. You may notice visual effects, such as colours appear brighter and you feel more cheerful or relaxed.


    If you take an average dose, the hallucinations are more pronounced. Feelings of euphoria are possible, or you get fits of laughter or your brain produces striking, specialy, out of the box thoughts. Taking a medium dose is only advisable if you have already used a low dose a few times and responded well to it.


    You take the highest dose if you have gained a lot of experience with magic mushrooms. You can then take 3.5 grams of dried or 35 grams of fresh mushrooms. The trip will be intense, with powerful hallucinations that you can see with your eyes open and closed. All your senses work differently, your sense of time and space can disappear. People indicate that with this dose they have gained spiritual insights, that they have met extraterrestrial or strange beings. Such a high dose can change your whole outlook on life.


    Magic mushrooms for beginners and advanced users

    Not only the dose determines your trip, but also the type of mushroom you choose. Some magic mushrooms have more powerful effects than others. Are you looking for a mushroom with mild effects, suitable for a beginner? Then go for the Mexican (from All in One of Fresh Mushrooms). The Mazatapec is a nice magic mushroom for people who have tripped a bit more often. And if you have a lot of experience and are going for an intense trip, then the McKennaii is for you.
