Shroom Trip, what a thing right? Indigenous cultures around the world have used magic mushrooms like Mazatapec for at least 10,000 years. In both ancient and modern times, they played an important part in healing, prayer, and divination. Their religious ceremonial use has been depicted in 6,000-year-old rock paintings in Spain, 7,000-9,000-year-old cave paintings in Algeria, and Central American effigies, motifs, and sculptures.
Psilocybin mushrooms were popularized as a recreational drug in the 1960s. In 1955, R. Gordon Wasson, a vice president of JP Morgan, and a photographer ventured to Mexico to the mud hut of Mazatec curandera (medicine woman), María Sabina. Here they participated in a ritual that involved ingesting a psilocybin dosage. These men then became known as the “first white men to eat sacred mushrooms in modern history.”
There is no such thing as a “bad trip” when using magic mushrooms in a religious context. Rather, there is what can be considered a cleansing and emotional release. This is the result of what the drug determines you need to feel and experience from the trip.
By the conclusion of your shroom trip, you have finished a tough, but beneficial trip, and the knowledge you’ve gained is yours to integrate how you feel is most constructive.
Recreationally speaking, when people decide to take a dosage just for fun, tough experiences can be easily considered to be “bad,” not to mention how serious they may be if they take place in a public space, engaging unwanted attention. However, there are many effective ways to increase the likelihood of an enjoyable experience by implementing these 7 simple, yet effective steps.
Ensure the safety and comfort of your surroundings for your psychedelic experience
A shroom trip can certainly feel disorienting, especially if you are new to psychedelics. You might lose yourself on a path while you’re taking a walk in the woods. It’s easy to become distracted and to take an unfamiliar path. You might simply see something that isn’t really there. Your perception of everyday objects and things will change more than you might expect, so keep this in mind if you decide to venture outside of the house on a trip.
Because a magic mushroom trip can make what would be considered a boring experience so much more interesting, not to mention funny, it’s easy to attract unwanted attention in a public place. For this reason, for the 6-8 hour span of your shroom trip, you definitely want to make sure you are in a secure place. Create a comfortable environment with a relaxing space and easy water access. Your house or a place where people won’t bother you will offer privacy and distance from everything else going on in the world.
Consume a magic mushroom dosage that is right for you
Nothing is more horrific than overdosing yourself with magic mushrooms. Whether you choose to grow Golden Teacher mushrooms or Oasis mushrooms, the potential dangers remain the same. It is easy to spiral out of a pleasant experience if you overestimate how much you think you should consume. However, take solace in the fact that you will be way more likely to throw up first if you overdose yourself than you are to die. In fact, deaths from magic mushrooms are exceptionally rare, so it’s not rocket science to figure out how to avoid such a traumatic experience. The only bad news, however, is that you might experience seemingly never-ending hours of horrifying hallucinations and many troubling thoughts. During this time, it’s imperative to maintain awareness of your breath.
Based on the knowledge you have of your body, finding the correct dosage will majorly depend on two factors: your body weight and body sensitivities. As a general rule, taking one gram of psilocybin cubensis is seen as an appropriate amount for an adult. Remember, it’s always easier to take another gram later on than it is to take less after the fact. Begin with a smaller dose and wait and see how your body reacts. Feel free to increase the dosage a couple of hours into the trip or increase your dosage on your next trip. Experimentation with dosing is unavoidable as no two people will react to a shroom trip in the exact same way.
The first thing that comes to mind when pondering this simple, but frequently disregarded step is how often people tell stories about how cold festivals can get at nighttime. If you find yourself at Burning Man, make sure you have adequate clothing to keep you warm and cozy all night long. Warm, fuzzy hats and jackets are a must if you’re tripping on mushrooms at a festival during the night. Do not wear anything too complex! An appropriate litmus test to determine whether an outfit is appropriate is to think about how easily you will be able to use the porta-potties with the type of clothing you plan to wear. Do not wear something you’re afraid of ruining. Who knows? Anything can happen on a magic mushroom trip. If you still feel uninspired, an animal suit onesie is truly a great outfit to wear even though it’s not the most original outfit choice.

Determine the purpose of the experience
Did you know that you should set an intention for your trip? If you’ve never tried this before, I highly recommend this powerful act that will instantly create a guide for your mushroom trip and set it aside from a potentially messy leisure activity. Implementing this tip has the power to encourage the gain of life-changing insight. If you’ve never tried this before, don’t worry! It’s pretty easy. For your mushroom trip, you can set some kind of goal, but finding a purpose related to acquiring new knowledge is typically the most common and useful strategy. Think carefully as to what your trip intentions will be. This will assist you in strivinging to become the best version of yourself.
Eat your mushrooms on an empty stomach
This step is pretty straight forward. Magic mushrooms can make your stomach feel uneasy, so it’s best to consume your dose on an empty stomach. Nausea caused by ingestion is greatly reduced when there isn’t any food in the stomach. Avoid eating right before a trip to avoid interference with the digestion of the mushrooms.
Experiment with superfood complements
Superfood complements such as lemon, lime, or other citrus juices improve the effects of magic mushrooms. They also have the potential to make the psychoactive effects quicker and deeper. Eating magic mushroom chocolates is a classic and favorite method of enjoying magic mushrooms. Magic mushrooms are consumed in many different ways such as in Gelatin Capsules, tea, or edibles! If you’re planning on filling capsules, this mushroom grinder is a must-have. These are often the preferred ways to ingest a dose since chewing the stems by themselves does not sound appetizing in the slightest. You can find or make raw magic chocolate mushroom bars that exist with one or a variety of different kinds of superfoods and spices. Do your research before you make yourself suffer through the straight-up chew-and-swallow method.
Stash food and water nearby for later
Simple activities, such as microwaving a bag of popcorn, may sound extremely challenging when you’re tripping on magic mushrooms. You want to make sure that you have convenient access to food and drink, with minimum hassle. Ensure sure that you have a full liter of water along with nutritious snacks such as refreshing fruit. These are especially important if you are out and about at an outdoor music festival. Magic mushrooms tend to decrease the appetite, which may even have the potential to cause mild nausea. Because of this, you do not want to wait for the whole trip duration before deciding to eat something.
Most trip anecdotes relating to food explain that healthier food tends to go down a lot smoother. Many people prefer vegetarian options while tripping instead of consuming meat. Even looking at meat on magic mushrooms can put people off or make them sick to the point of vomiting. Typically, fruits are a great, safe option. The psychedelic community majorly accepts fruits as a wonderful snack choice.
