The effects start 10 to 40 minutes after ingestion and can last 3 to 6 hours, depending on the dose and the individual. Psilocybes, like all tryptamines, frequently cause what has been dubbed “the mushroom yawns,” which increase markedly as one approaches peak; however, the rest of the body feels energetic, not tired. Users can expect a wide range of effects and sensations, including the mystical, euphoric, and revelatory, as well as hyperspatial and mind-altering observational.
Some users report warping of the visual field and Dali-esque melting objects at doses greater than 2 grams, and other possible effects include time distortion, hallucinations when eyes are closed or open, and synesthesia (i.e. “seeing” sounds and “feeling” colors). Remember to stay hydrated, especially if you’re going to be outside or doing activities like dancing, and try sipping some honey ginger tea to alleviate any nausea that may occur during the come-up.
