Magic Mushroom Dosage: Things you Should Know

One of the most critical parts of magic mushroom tripping is using the right shroom with its correct dose. How?

Magic mushrooms have several health benefits these include the following:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Smoking cessation, alcohol, and other substance addiction
  • Cancer-related psychological distress
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD

However, despite its various benefits, tripping with magic mushroom can be dangerous too, especially using the wrong shroom strain or wrong dose; shroom misuse and abuse can cause a “bad-acid trip”, which may include the following symptoms:

  • Extreme anxiety
  • Extreme fear
  • Frightening hallucination
  • Extreme panic
  • Paranoia or terror

To avoid experiencing a ‘bad-acid trip’ when tripping with magic mushroom, you must know your shroom and the right dose for it.

What is the right dose for magic mushroom?

Doses for magic mushrooms vary, depending on the shroom’s potency. Some shrooms are consumed lesser than the other strains due to their potency; for instance, one of the most potent magic mushrooms is the PsilocybeAzurescens with 1.78% psilocybin and should be consumed at a lower dose.
