Dose of magic hallucinogenic mushrooms

Reading Time 4 minutes


A magic mushroom session can be magical or tragic. Whether it ends up one way or another depends on several factors, and one of the most important is the amount of psilocybin consumed. With this post we will learn how to dose magic mushrooms and truffles in order to control the intensity of the trip. Interesting, isn’t it? Here we go…


🎯 Magic Mushrooms Microdose



When we say hallucinogenic mushrooms microdose we do not mean consuming small doses at a given time to feel its effects in a moderate way. This term means to routinely ingest minimal amounts of psilocybin without feeling its psychoactive effects, in order to benefit in the medium and long term from its medicinal properties.

How to Micro-dose Magic Mushrooms?

First of all, it must be clear that not all entheogenic fungi contain the same levels of psilocybin and psilocin. Even the same variety contains different concentrations of alkaloids when fresh or when dried. The ideal is to dry the magic mushrooms or truffles and then grind them, to try to be as accurate as possible when quantifying microdoses.

If you are going to eat dried mushrooms the amount for each dose is from 0.0035 to 0.017 oz. (0.1 – 0.5 grams), and if they are dried truffles from 0.017 to 0.035 oz. (0.5 – 1 gram). The psilocybe variety must also be taken into account, as not all of them have the same concentration of alkaloids. If they are Mexican mushrooms you can easily take 0.010 to 0.017 oz. (0.3 – 0.5 grams), but if they are McKenaii you better take from 0.0035 to 0.010 oz. (0.1 – 0.3 grams).

It is better to prepare all the doses on the first day, so you don’t have to weigh on the scale every time you want to use. You can use capsules to eat directly, or store separate doses in sachets to take or mix with food at the time of ingestion.

How to use Magic Mushroom Microdoses

Ideally, you should take a microdose of psilocybes every 3 days. I mean, if you start today, you won’t take any more tomorrow or the day after, but the next day you’ll have the next one. On day 1, the day you consume, you will notice some changes in your condition, day 2 is to rest and day 3 to recover tolerance. On the 4th you must use again, and so on and so forth.

That cycle has to be repeated over 10 weeks, and during that time it is interesting to note the changes you feel, your mood, behavior, changes in cognitive skills, etc. For some time now, many users claim to have improved many aspects of their lives thanks to hallucinogenic microdose, especially concentration, motivation, creativity and performance.


⛳ Low dose of Magic Mushrooms


Low doses of hallucinogenic truffles or mushrooms can be a lot of fun, as they can be compared to a slight intoxication. Similar to when you drink a couple of beers or a glass of wine, the most absurd thing goes through your mind, you laugh at everything and happiness invades you.

The effect can take about 30 minutes to rise, and can extend from 2 to 4 hours, in which the senses are amplified, so you enjoy everything much more: music, landscapes, relationships, everything.

What is a low dose of Magic Mushrooms?

Objectively, a small dose means from 0.017 to 0.05 oz. (0.5 – 1.5 grams) of dried hallucinogenic mushrooms. I use the word objectively because, as always, several factors come into play, in addition to quantity. A low dose of dried magic truffles would be about 0.035 to 0.07 oz. (1 – 2 grams).

👌 Average dose of Magic Mushrooms


An average dose of dried hallucinogenic mushrooms would be 0.05 to 0.17 oz. (1.5 – 5 grams) and depending on the variety and your tolerance, this can already be a great experience. In the case of dried magic truffles, an average dose would be from 0.07 to 0.25 oz. (2 – 7 grams) approximately.

The effects of a regular dose of psilocybes take about half an hour to be felt, and the trip can easily be extended by 3 to 5 hours. During that time the perception of reality will change, colors will gain intensity, shapes will vary, patterns will be created wherever you look, sounds will be amplified and thoughts can become mystical.


⛳ High dose of Magic Mushrooms or Heroic dose


When it comes to dry magic mushrooms,a dose of 0.17 to 0.28 oz. (5 – 8 grams) is considered high, something that most people are not prepared for, because you need a lot of previous experience not to have a bad time with those amounts, not at all recommended. If we talk about dried psilocybe truffles a high dose would be from 0.25 to 0.35 oz. (7 – 10 grams).

What is a Heroic dose of Magic Mushrooms?

It is one way to call the intake of any amount greater than 0.17 oz. (5 grams) of dried magic mushrooms. For some varieties that’s a really strong dose, only for very experienced psychonauts.

The effects with high doses of hallucinogenic mushrooms start to be noticed in 30 minutes or less, and the entheogenic session can be prolonged for more than 6 hours in many cases. During that interval you enter a new dimension, where the perception of space/time is totally different and the visuals can become really powerful.


📖 Recommended dose of Magic Mushrooms


A good dose of hallucinogenic mushrooms for a beginner would be about 0.05 oz. (1.5 grams) for dry psilocybes. In the case of magic truffles the dose can be somewhat higher, but it is important not to exceed the first time.

The best dose of magic mushrooms is the one that makes you feel most comfortable within your goals when consuming psilocybes. Every body is different, so it is impossible to say which is the best overall dose.

With our magic mushroom dosage calculator you can predict the right amount of magic mushrooms or truffles you need to take to get the effect you want at that moment. This is the best way to adjust the dosage in a personal way, since the effect of the same substance can change depending on multiple variables, such as body weight, or the time that has passed since the last dose, among others. Once you have harvested your mushroom bread, it is important that you take this information into account to decide the right amount to consume.

All you have to do is fill in the fields requested, it's very easy and quick, it's only 5 steps:

  1. Choose your body weight: This is one of the most important factors when choosing the right dosage. Keep in mind that the same amount of psilocybin has a different effect on a 90 kilogram (198.4 pounds) body than on a 65 kilogram (143.3 pounds) body.

  2. Select the kind of hallucinogenic mushroom: Both magic mushrooms and truffles contain psilocybin, but not in the same concentration, so it is essential to know the type of mushroom before deciding the final dose.

  3. Fresh or dried: As with the fresh cannabis, more than 75% of the total weight of the hallucinogenic mushrooms is water, that is to say that when dried it remains in less than 25% of the total weight, but it still contains the same amount of active ingredient, so it is very important to know the humidity level of the fungus before deciding the dose.

  4. Effect Intensity: There are users who consume magic mushrooms to have a few laughs with friends, or just to see things from another point of view, in very soft trips. But there are also psychonauts who prefer to go a step further, and feel the full power of psilocybin. At this point you choose whether you want a low dose and modify consciousness minimally, or go for a high dose and fly.

  5. Days since last psilocybin dose: In the last step the calculator requires how long it has been since the last magic mushroom dose. This factor is crucial to determine the ideal dose, since it is not the same if you took it 2 days ago or more than 30 days ago, since the tolerance that can be acquired with this substance is high.
Remember to always treat these substances with great respect, the dose is one of the factors that determine the quality of the trip, but there are others like the set&setting that can become more important. Choose an ideal moment, when you feel good in your mind, without any problems. An environment that you are familiar with and in which you are comfortable and safe, and above all choose the right company, all this is crucial.
