Magic mushrooms can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, from consuming the product raw, to more discrete means such as distillates, capsules, and edibles. The effects, intensity of the trip, and longevity vary between each form of consumption.
Full Dose Consumption
Magic mushrooms have been eaten raw throughout most of recorded human history. Modern methods involve mixing the mushrooms into salads, sandwiches, and other foods to dilute the offensive taste associated with most raw mushrooms.
While the taste may be unpleasant, direct consumption results in a fast onset of effects between 30 minutes to an hour, depending on metabolism speed.
Raw mushrooms can be further dried and processed into a fine powder that can be used in magic mushroom edible recipes. Mushrooms in powder form are also popularly added in as a top layer for cannabis and tobacco, however this “party trick” is not recommended for first-time users.
Magic mushroom candies and chocolates are one of, if not the most popular alternative to raw mushroom consumption available. With edibles, you get the full range of effects (although slightly delayed) with the standard trip duration of 4-6 hours.
Edibles offer a discreet way to get a full-dose trip without the offensive taste and stigma associated with eating the mushrooms raw.
For the most low-key consumption possible, you can get the full range of psychedelic effects from magic mushroom distillates. Applying 0.1ml of distillate on your tongue and swallowing is equivalent to 1.5g of mushrooms, so you’ll be able to accurately dose your trip.
Lastly, a favourite amongst classy folk and morning people, psilocybin tea offers a moderate intensity trip along with a warm feeling and cleansing aftertaste. Tea bags typically contain a 1:1 ratio of psilocybin per tea bag.
Micro Dose Consumption
While full psychedelic trips may be fun, micro-dosing offers the benefits of magic mushrooms to users who don’t have the time or energy to trip balls for 6 hours straight. Micro-dosing has been proven to enhance creativity and make everything around you seem more pleasant and dream-like.
The effects of microdosing can be compared to a cannabis sativa head high without a drowsy body high. Occasional thought loops may occur, but the overall boost to productivity has put micro-dosing on the map.
