They can also be ground up into a powder, and used in shroom edibles such as shroom gummies or chocolates for example. They are getting really popular for their health benefits in Canada whether it is for mood enhancement with micro-dosing or deeper experience with high dosage.
Users experience can hallucinations as well as intense euphoria while under the influence of magic mushrooms. It is not uncommon for users to feel nauseous after ingesting psilocybin-containing fungi in large doses causing vomiting if they have taken too much. Some users report having bad trips with very negative experiences such as feeling anxious or depressed but these cases are rarer than good trips that people enjoy immensely.

You can be under the influence of shrooms while at work, with friends or family going out for dinner – it’s not going to affect what you’re doing normally! When microdosing you won’t experience any side effects, and many people are able to carry on with their day-to-day activities without difficulty.

Make sure you don’t have any pressing obligations at this dose or higher when using this medication, as your ability to function may be affected.
Tripping at moderate dosage is common, but you might have to limit your environment. For example, walking around the city or being in an intense club/festival setting can be too much if it’s not well measured- just take care of yourself! Tripping alone or with close and trusted companions at this dose is typical.
Talking with others who have taken magic mushrooms is a unique experience. The conversations often go beyond what would happen if you took the drug alone, and they tend to be more honest as well because of this influence from chemical assistance in our brain. A moderate amount makes for great chats!
People who are new to mushroom therapy may want to consider having a sober friend or loved one accompany them when they take their first high dose. You’ll find that this helps with any anxiety you feel about experiencing something so foreign, as well as providing emotional support if needed throughout the trip!
High doses of mushrooms can be taken at home, in the comfort of one’s own space. It is important to prepare for this by ensuring there are plenty food items available and music that will keep you distracted.
If you plan to take a high dose of mushrooms during the peak, it may be best if avoid walking around crowded areas or busy roads as these settings can feel overwhelming and unsafe.
The supervision of a professional is essential when taking intense and deep experiences, such as those found in heroic doses. This person should be present to protect your physical safety from challenging or overwhelming situations that may arise during this Mind- tasted adventures
If you need help overcoming any difficulties then have someone nearby who can center yourself so they don’t leave without checking up on how things are going!
