5 Tips to make the most out of your mushroom trip

The psychedelic experience can be a very effective catalyst for accomplishing a better understanding about who you are. During a mushroom trip you will encounter anything from mind-bending visuals to deep introspective trains of thought and ecstatic bodily sensations. Non-experienced users can find these effects to be overwhelming. This is why we recommend to make sure the conditions in which you initiate your journey are optimized for your own safety and enjoyment of it. Here’s 5 tips that will help you make the most out of your mushroom trip:

Clear mindset

The first thing you need to make sure is that you are aware of the intentions why you want to engage in a psychedelic experience. Magic mushrooms can often be taken in a recreational fashion but they’re also really powerful introspection catalysts. Knowing what you want from a mushroom trip will help your mind to focus more on the aspects of the trip you want to delve into.


If you are going to a very rough path emotionally and your mental health is in a delicate state we strongly advice against trying a full dosage. This might trigger a panic attack or a strong sense of discomfort if you present unpleasant sensations or imagery during the trip.

Safe and controlled environment

Your mental health and emotional state is important but so are your surroundings and companions. Doing a mushroom trip in a remote nature area can bring a beautiful imagery that would be enhanced during the experience. However this comes with a reduced level of control you have over the environment. If you don’t know the area very well there is a chance you could lose sense of direction and potentially get lost, something you definitely don’t want to be while tripping.


The people you are with also play a very significant role in your experience. Doing mushrooms with strangers or with people you don’t know that well can produce paranoid thoughts. Also in case you experience any sense of discomfort is always better to be around close friends and people who cares for you and your well-being.

Bring a notebook and a pen

During the mushroom trip your brain will shoot at you a storm of ideas and thoughts that you might not fully remember after you come back from the journey. This is why is extremely handy to have a piece of paper and a pencil or pen to write down any particular thoughts that stand out as you wander across your mind. Writing while high on shrooms is not the easiest since your sense of space will be slightly altered but you should still have enough control to successfully take some notes, even if your handwriting won’t be your best.

Do not perform any risky tasks

This one is very obvious but some psychonauts seem to neglect it. Driving, using heavy machinery or performing any kind of precision-demanding
activity should be avoided at all costs. As mentioned before your mind will be too busy surfing through the stream of consciousness to stay focused on what’s happening in front of you and your sense of space and time will be perceived different. Exposing yourself is not only dangerous to you but to the people around you, so please stick to relaxing, creative and recreational activities only.

Be mindful of mirrors

Staring at mirrors is an interesting subject when it comes to psychedelic experiences. Some people strongly advice against seeing yourself in the mirror. Usually during mushroom trips everything will look distorted and will appear as if its moving even if its not. Looking at your own face in this state can be frightening if you are not fully aware of the reason it looks like that in the first place. Once you know what’s going on you can even find some comedy in the fact that your face looks like a rotoscoped version of itself.
If you follow these indications your mushroom trip should be smooth sailing. The world of psychedelic substances is still yet to be fully comprehended but it can surely be enjoyed when engaging responsibly and with a clear path.
