  1. Psilocybe Cubensis: there are now 60 different strains of P. cubensis, like Golden Teachers, B+, Penis Envy Mushrooms, and Pink Buffalo. They are the most common because they can be easily grown indoors.
  2. Psilocybe semilanceata: (Liberty Caps) are the 3rd most potent in psilocybin.

  8. Psilocybe caerulescens: (Landslide Mushrooms) Their potency is low to moderate, and the trip can even be a bit shorter, lasting from three to six hours. They’re a good introduction to magic mushrooms, but can also be a disappointment to those with Psilocybe cubensis experience.

  10. Psilocybe caerulipes: (Blue Foot) They are a moderately potent psilocybin mushroom, roughly the same strength as Psilocybe cubensis. Experiences can be strong so start small (1-3 grams) if you get a hold of these guys.


tips for shrooms

Step 2: Make sure you're ready for the experience

Anyone who has taken shrooms will tell you, being in the right headspace is crucial. Shrooms can boost your mood and energy, give you a euphoric feeling and induce light to extreme hallucinations (depending on the dose). With that in mind, going into a shroom trip when you are stressed will enhance those negative emotions and buckle you in for a bumpy ride. 

Those who experience a “bad trip” will often say that it was their fault for taking shrooms without being in a good place to start with. A clinical coulser by the name of Dave Philips said “It helps your own brain solve your own problems.” and “It wasn’t a bad trip, only a challenging one”

Step 3: Pick your environment carefully

You want to take shrooms in a place where you feel safe and comfortable, avoid places that make you anxious like work or school. It’s common for people to want to spend their trip outside in nature as it helps you feel more connected with the earth beneath you. It’s also common to take shrooms in the comfort and safety of your own home. Just make sure there aren’t any things that will be potentially stressful and put a damper on your trip.

Step 4: Bring a buddy

If it’s your first time trippy, bring a buddy! most seasoned shroom users will recommend beginners bring along an experienced user or “trip sitter” to hang out with them while they go through their experience. Make sure this is someone you trust and feel safe with, don’t go ask a stranger on the street to look after you while you trip.

Step 5: The right equipment

Don’t just take shrooms and not bring anything with you, that would make one boring trip. It’s said that music is so much better on shrooms, you feel the rhythm of the music through your whole body. If you’re feeling creative, bring a notepad and pencil to draw whatever your brain imagines, maybe you’ll be the next Picasso who knows! Lastly remember to bring water and snacks to make your experience just a bit more enjoyable, don’t want to trip on an empty stomach.

Beginners Guide to Microdosing

Beginners to microdosing!

What is Microdosing and how does it work?

Microdosing is the method of treating pre-existing conditions with little quantities of psychedelics (LSD, psilocybin, MDMA, DMT) (like depression or anxiety). The goal isn’t to go high, but to find a better balance.

What is a typical dose?

That depends on the drug you’re taking and whether you’ve eaten or not. On a full stomach, the effects may be lessened. A typical microdose, is between 5% and 10% of a standard dosage. A typical mushroom dose, for example, is 1 to 1.5 grammes. A microdose is defined as a dose of 50 to 150 milligrammes. Microdoses can also be consumed in uncooked or liquid form.

How often do you microdose?

That is dependent on your intentions. However, it should be done at least twice a week and preferably outside of working hours. While many people experiment with micro-dosing on their own, experts advocate professional supervision and periodic breaks for those using psychedelics for therapy to avoid developing tolerance and decreasing the drug’s effectiveness.

Are there any risks?

Psychedelics have a lot of potentials. While micro-dosing, avoid mixing them with alcohol or other substances, including prescription medications. Some specialists advise against using any type of stimulant, including coffee. Wait three or four hours before micro-dosing if you’re on prescription medication. Microdosing in a comfortable environment is very vital for beginners. Remember, your intentions go a long way
