The Beginner’s Guide to Tripping on Magic Mushrooms

There’s a first time for everything, but Psilocybin’s effect on human consciousness over centuries is nothing new. Creating experiences that go anywhere from the mildest giggles, to a full-blown transformation of consciousness, magic mushrooms have been a go-to for many as they navigate their way through this lifetime.

As innocent as your little scooby snacks may seem, it’s packed with an experience like no other, so if you’re new to dosing on shrooms, here are some ways to prepare for your trip in a way that’s safe and responsible.

Be Mindful of your Base Mood

Shrooms will intensify whatever mood and emotional state you are in when you take them. They lead you to a deep and aware experience. If you’re not a in a good headspace, there’s a larger chance you’ll have a bad trip.

Set and Setting

Be in the company of those you feel safe with, and in an environment that feels supportive. With how porous you will be during your magic mushroom experience, things can get overwhelming quickly, especially if this is your first time. It’s also highly recommended that for your first time, you have a sitter with you during this trip. This would be someone trusted, and sober, who can walk you through the experience.

Pack a Travel Bag

You’re about to embark on trip, so you’re probably going to want some water, and snacks to sustain you along the way. Tripping on psilocybin can last 3-6 hours, so set yourself up for success and keep some easy nourishment nearby.

Make Some Room

It’s suggested to not eat anything for at least 3 hours before ingesting magic mushrooms. This will allow for the psilocybin to be absorbed more quickly into your body, and there’s less of a chance that you’ll experience the nausea that commonly occurs when people start to trip.

Keep it Simple

Don’t mix psychoactive drugs. Just don’t do it. Adding a trip on top of another trip can cause a real bad trip, especially if you’ve never taken shrooms or any other kind of psychedelic before. You might hear word that some people take a small amount of cannabis to help combat nausea or trip-anxiety, but

Start Small

Go slow and start small. You can always add more later. Granted that you have a great first trip, you’ll be back again, and can make your adjustments from there.

There’s no exact formula for how much you should take. Every person will metabolize psilocybin differently, however there are a few benchmarks you can use when dosing. ¼ of a gram is considered to be the ‘threshold dose’ for a light experience, 1-2.5g will set you on a real trip.
