How Long Does a Shroom High Last?

How Long Does a Shroom High Last?

How long does a shroom high last? 

Here’s what you need to know about a magic mushroom trip.

If you are new to taking magic mushrooms, it pays to know about the experience such as what to expect and how long the effects will last. It is a crucial step to prepare for the experience that is about to unfold and the side effects that come with it, especially since you have no means to speed up the process. 

For those who prefer to eat raw mushrooms, the psychedelic effects can be felt as early as half an hour from the time of ingestion. There are a variety of ways to serve magic mushrooms that enable you to feel the effects almost instantaneously. For example, you can now buy magic mushrooms in tea form. Consuming the magic mushrooms this way can help to speed up the effects, gradually reducing it from 30 minutes to as fast as 10 minutes.

The intensity and the length of the effect is a different matter for discussion altogether. There are several factors that can come into play that will determine this. 

How long will your trip last?

When you consume psychedelic mushrooms, the peak of its effects will be felt in an hour and a half from the time of its consumption. The effect will disappear after six hours from the time the effect sets in.

A lot of users report losing track of time while under the effect of psychedelic mushrooms. Therefore, it becomes difficult to track with accuracy when you’ve dosed and when the effects actually kick in.

So, how can you tell if you are on a trip?

Experts agree that you will begin to feel a sense of euphoria. Your world will start to open up, too, and everything around you seems more vivid. Some users report they notice solid objects come to life. 

On average, the psychedelic effects of magic mushrooms will last for four to six hours. This will vary on the following factors: 

  1. Potency of the Mushroom

This is one of the most important factors that will determine how long your trip lasts. Each type of mushroom will contain varying levels of psychedelic compounds. Based on that, it will also determine the amount of active molecules that will act on your body once you consume that mushroom.

  1. Dosage amount

The dose of the magic mushroom you consume is also critical in two ways: the intensity of the trip and the length of its effect. The more mushrooms you consume, the more intense the experience will be. You can adjust the dose of your magic mushrooms depending on the type of psychedelic experience you want.

  1. Previous experience

Whether it is your first time or you’ve tried psychedelic mushrooms in the past will impact the intensity and the length of your trip. The more you consume magic mushrooms, the higher your brain tolerance will be. If you are an experienced user, your level of sensitivity to the psychedelic compounds will be higher than first time users.

  1. Last time you’ve eaten

Consuming magic mushrooms on an empty stomach will produce a more intense effect. It will also reduce the possibility of being nauseated in the process.

  1. Expectations

Believe it or not, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence that your expectations when consuming magic mushrooms can also impact the outcome of your trip. Positive expectations lead to a positive trip. 

It is important to note that psychedelics, like magic mushrooms, can stimulate your brain’s serotonin receptors. If you are taking antidepressants, it can lead to a fatal condition known as serotonin syndrome. Make sure to exercise caution especially since an increased blood pressure is also one of the side effects of taking magic mushrooms. 

How long will it stay in your system?

Any trace of the psychedelic compounds from magic mushrooms will be eliminated from your system for up to 48 hours. However, there are some by-products that can stay on your system for longer – up to several months.

The current standard drug testing required by employers does not include magic mushrooms. It will require specialized tests to be able to trace these compounds. In some cases, though, these compounds will appear in urine tests up to a week after they are consumed. 

These specialized tests are expensive; therefore, they are only administered when there is strong evidence for taking magic mushrooms.

There are currently no means to eliminate traces of magic mushrooms from your system faster than how the human body does. Therefore, you have to let it disappear on its own over time.

What does a shroom trip feel like?

The type of mushroom trip will differ from one person to another. The most common side effect is a sense of euphoria. Some also experience a higher level of empathy and connection with nature. 

You can also expect to experience a wide range of emotions while on a trip. Some notice feeling euphoric and at peace while others can also experience a “bad trip”. For the latter, you might notice heightened levels of fear and paranoia overcome your body. Your experience can differ from another even though you take the same amount of dose.

That uncomfortable feeling while you’re on a trip is not a bad thing, experts say. The purpose of psychedelics is to expand the mind and allow you to confront emotions or thoughts that you normally won’t. This is why some people experience anxiety and other negative emotions. 

If you start to experience a bad trip, you can calm your emotions down by listening to music or stepping outside for fresh air. Meditation can also help. 

If you are taking magic shrooms for the first time, it is a good idea to have someone else with you. They can help navigate your feelings while you are on a trip. 

Final Words

Mushrooms are known as powerful psychedelics for centuries now. They have been used throughout history for medicinal, spiritual, and recreational purposes. However, their effects on your body can be unpredictable. Not everyone who consumes them can expect the same results. It is best to start with a low dose or seek the help of an expert before you start taking them.
