    Everything you wanted to know about dosing magic mushrooms

    Were you planning to use magic mushrooms for the first time? Then it is wise to first find out more about how you can best dose magic mushrooms. Shrooms (or magic mushrooms) contain the psychoactive substance psilocybin. The more you ingest, the more intense your trip will be. If you have never tripped before, it is advisable to start with caution. In this blog, you can read everything about dosing magic mushrooms.


    Tripping with magic mushrooms

    If you are curious about magic mushrooms and their effects, you will probably also want to know more about the dosage. When you start using a mind-altering substance, it is good to realize that each substance can have its own unique effects. And the dose determines what kind of trip you will have. Too low a dose will not do much, and that is always a pity. Too high a dose can be frightening and even dangerous. The right dose is what you are looking for, a dose that you can enjoy and have a great time.


    It is the substance psilocybin in magic mushrooms that causes a trip. In your body, it has a similar effect to the neurotransmitter serotonin. This is also called the happiness hormone and affects your mood. It is somewhat uplifting and causes feelings of contentment and happiness. With a good trip, psilocybin can also cause that.


    When you start using magic mushrooms, you want to get a dose that causes a nice trip. However, you never know exactly how much psilocybin a magic mushroom contains. It is a natural product, so the percentage of the mind-altering substance can vary. In addition, the power of the mushroom also depends on the mushroom variety you have chosen. One species is more powerful than the other. The popular Mexican mushroom causes a mild trip, while the McKennaii is one of the strongest mushrooms and can cause intense hallucinations.

    All about dosing magic mushrooms

    The first few times you are going to use magic mushrooms, it is advisable to be careful with the dosage. Choose a mushroom that is suitable for beginners and go for a low dose. See how you react to that first. For example, take 1 gram of dried magic mushrooms or 10 grams of fresh ones. If this goes well, if you had a mild trip, you can take a little more next time. When dosing magic mushrooms, you can proceed from the following dosage advice:


    Dosage of dried magic mushrooms:

    Low dose, mild effects: 1 to 2 grams

    Medium dose, moderate effects: 2.5 grams

    High dose, strong effects: 3.5 to 4 grams


    Dosage of fresh magic mushrooms

    Low dose, mild effects: 10 to 20 grams

    Medium dose, moderate effects: 25 grams

    High dose, strong effects: 35 to 40 grams


    Besides the power of the magic mushrooms, it is also useful to think about what kind of trip you are looking for. Are you at a party and want to have a good time with friends? Then it is best to take a low dose. Then you have little chance of hallucinations, and you can still focus on the people around you. You do feel social and connected to others.


    If you really want to take a journey, experience hallucinations, explore your own inner self, you could take a higher dose. This can take you to other dimensions, you can gain insights about yourself and the world around you. However, make sure that you have gained some experience with magic mushrooms first. And also make sure you are in a safe and familiar environment, with a tripsitter nearby. Then you can get acquainted with the special powers of the magic mushroom.


    How do you weigh a dose of magic mushrooms?

    As you could read earlier, the dosage of magic mushrooms is very important for the kind of trip you get. It is also important to weigh your dose accurately. You can do this in several ways.


    By using a scale, you can always be sure that you are taking exactly the amount of magic mushrooms that you had in mind. If you use magic mushrooms or truffles more often, it can be useful to invest in a good quality scale. Especially if you go microdosing, an accurate scale is important.


    If you don't have a scale, you can also estimate your dose. But of course that is not very accurate and mistakes can be made. You can then unknowingly ingest more or less than you had hoped. That will probably negatively affect your trip. Be careful if you take a dose of magic mushrooms that you have chosen by eye. A small weighing scale does not cost much and ensures that you know for sure that you take the right dose.


    Fresh or dried mushrooms

    If you are looking for mushrooms, you can choose dried or fresh mushrooms. You cannot buy magic mushrooms ready-made in a shop, but you can buy them in a grow kit. These grow kits are very easy to use, within a few weeks you will have your own fresh magic mushrooms or truffles. These can then be used immediately. However, fresh magic mushrooms do not keep that long, they spoil quickly, even if you store them in the refrigerator.


    With a grow kit you get a good harvest of magic mushrooms. It is therefore advisable to drying. Dried magic mushrooms have a much longer shelf life, namely about 2 to 3 years, while they retain all their magical powers. Then you can enjoy your home-grown magic mushrooms for a long time to come.
