Taking magic mushrooms: DO-S
(1) Start with a low dose.
Never take more than 1 gram of dry magic mushrooms. Wait for 90 minutes. If you
feel OK and want to intensify the experience you could take some more.
(2) Make sure there is nothing on your head for the next 24 hours.
No work, no school, no visiting of friends or family, no care for children or
pets, JUST NO NOTHING!
(3) Make sure to trip
in a relaxed environment.
Busy environments with lots of people and noise may cause an information
overload. Choose an environment where you are not bothered by people not
involved in the experience. Choose a calm, natural, preferably rural place,
where you can enjoy the wonders of nature. Choose a place that is familiar to
you, a place you know and where you feel save.
(4) Make sure to trip with people you know, like and trust.
Preferably there should be someone around that is not involved in the

Hi, I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I've
got 3 grams of Mexican shrooms and 2.5g of Thai shrooms. how many people do you

Immobilizing in high dose. Completely different than magic mushrooms.
Are Magic Mushrooms Legal?
The answer is: "it depends". The main psychoactive substance
in magic mushrooms is
psilocybin (psilocin). In most countries psilocybin and psilocin are illegal.
However, in quite a lot of countries this does not imply that the Psilocybe
mushrooms are illegal as well. Unprocessed, fresh magic mushrooms are legal in
many countries. See also the notes under 'Drying, storing and the
LAW' in the conserving
Fresh magic mushrooms LEGAL in Holland
Until November 4, 2002 fresh and dry magic mushrooms
were legal in the Netherlands. From this date, however, the supreme court
decided that dry magic mushrooms are illegal. Why? Because the are considered a
psilocybin containing preparation (something processed by a human being).
Happily, fresh magic mushrooms are still legal to possess and sell.
Do magic mushrooms show up in a drug test (1)?
After a week, no URINE or BLOOD based drug test will
diagnose psilocybin. So, make sure that within a week after taking you are not
tested for drugs. Psilocybin is (unlike cannabis/marijuana) not soluble in fat.
So it will NOT stay in your body for a long time.
Do magic mushrooms show up in a drug test (2)?
Is it possible to trace the use of magic mushrooms in your
hair? Until now I did not found literature about this issue. However, I THINK
that even in hair-analyzing-tests psilocybin will not show up (unlike for
example cocaine). The active dose of psilocybin is 5 to 20 milligrams. Virtually
nobody uses magic mushrooms on a daily basis (unlike alcohol, cocaine, heroin)
because it is not an addictive drug and the effects will go away after taking it
every day. So, most people only get very little amounts of psilocybin in their
system. Because of this the chances that it shows up in a 'hair-test' are very,
My son has just graduated from college, and is planning to
become a police officer. He came home one night high as a kite, and the next
morning we had a discussion and he told me he had taken 4 grams of magic
mushrooms. My question is how long do they stay in your system for? and if the
police do a drug test on him will it show up that he has taken them?
The experience lasts about 4 - 6 hours. Within 24 hours
completely baseline. Within 5 days no traces. After a week impossible to detect.
Most drug test do not test for psilocybin. Don't worry 2 much! Hope this helps!
