If you are new to magic mushrooms, this variety is worth a try. Many users think its effectiveness is slightly weaker than the more popular Psilocybe cubensis, but it still gives you a full range of magic mushroom experiences.
Be prepared before taking Psilocybe caerulescens. Recognizing that anything can happen and opening up to all possibilities will make you feel more comfortable when you start traveling. Set the conditions for yourself. If you experience a bad trip, then the whole experience is only temporary, helping your sense of helplessness to fade.
After preparing, all you have to do is to eat the mushroom. Anything less than 10g of fresh Psilocybe caerulescens is considered a light dose. A normal dose would be between 10-15g and anything higher than 15g is considered a strong dosage of the said magic mushroom. Most people don’t find the taste of P. caerulescens appealing and eating them would require you to power through. It’s earthy, and chewy, so it’s not uncommon for some folks to put the mushrooms on top of pizza or another food to make it more appetizing.
After the queasiness and slight discomfort from the taste subsides, you will start noticing the effects of Psilocybe caerulescens in 30 minutes to an hour. These include subtle changes in vision. Colors will become more vibrant. You will also start feeling more elated and giggly.
When the trip finally comes, you’ll have to hold on tight and just trust in wherever the mushrooms will take you.
Because Psilocybe caerulescens isn’t as strong as other magic mushroom species, you will have more control during your trip. You will be able to navigate your mindset. When this happens, it’s highly recommended to explore yourself and consider looking at your relationships, problems, goals, and principles. Doing so under the effect of magic mushrooms will give you a new perspective of such.
As your hallucinations become more intense, expect your sense of time to be completely distorted. You will stare at a flower for an hour without even noticing. The effects of Psilocybe caerulescens tend to plateau for 3-6 hours.
When the effects start to wear off, you feel more mellow and at peace. This is when you become re-oriented with the world, when you start remembering words which seemed so elusive for hours. This gives you a sense of relief.
After the trip, people have been known to maintain a positive mindset that lasts for months. Different psilocybin studies have shown how magic mushrooms such as Psilocybe caerulescens can contribute to a person’s long-term mental health with a single dose. In some instances, magic shrooms can also help curb addiction, depressive thinking, and improve work performance.
