How much magic mushrooms should I take?

The correct dose of magic mushrooms you should take mostly depends on the effects you want to have. For the purpose of this example, we will assume that you are planning to take fully dried magic mushrooms – use our magic mushroom dosage calculator to determine the amount of magic truffles/mushrooms if this is not the case.

So there are 4 main stages of magic mushroom effects that we first have to discuss:

  • Micro (microdosing – no clearly noticeable effects)
  • Low (very minimal psychoactive effects)
  • Medium-normal (normal set of effects)
  • Strong (ranging from a full-on trip to a hero dose)

For this example, we will assume that you are ~60-80kg in body mass and you are average when it comes to psilocybin/psilocin sensitivity. We will provide some tips if you weigh more or less, or if you feel that you might be more or less sensitive to magic mushrooms.

So based on averages, these are the suggested dosages of dried magic mushrooms:

  • For a microdose – ~0.1-0.25 grams of dried magic mushrooms.
  • For a light trip (low dose) – ~1 gram of dried magic mushrooms.
  • For a medium-normal trip – 1.5-2 grams of dried magic mushrooms.
  • For a full trip (strong) – 2-3 grams of dried magic mushrooms.
  • For a hero dose – 2.5-4 grams of dried magic mushrooms.

Before we dig into how you should lower/higher your dose according to various factors – remember, that you have to take these dosages on an empty stomach with a minimum of 3-4 hours of no food before. If you can fast for 10-12 hours before that, it’s even better. Also, these dosages are provided while considering that you haven’t take any psychedelics in ~2-4 weeks.

Let’s start with the weight. The dosing provided above is for a 60-80kg person, if you weigh more or less – consider increasing/decreasing the dosage according to how much/less you weight.

Now, when it comes to sensitivity – there’s no straight answer, so try to keep yourself safe. Especially be careful if you know that you are sensitive to many other compounds (weed, alcohol, etc.) – then we don’t advice taking more than 1-1.5 grams on your first try. A couple of experiences with magic mushrooms will allow you to clearly determine how magic mushrooms affect you personally and you will learn to choose the right dosing according to your personal needs.
