Shroom Edibles Frequently Asked Questions
What are shroom edibles and how are they different from magic mushrooms?
Shroom edibles refer to food or drink products that have been infused with psilocybin mushrooms, also known as magic mushrooms. These products can include things like chocolate bars, gummies, and teas.
In contrast, magic mushrooms refer to the actual mushrooms themselves, which can be consumed in various forms, including fresh or dried.
When consuming magic mushrooms, the effects are usually felt within 20-40 minutes and can last between 4 to 6 hours. On the other hand, consuming shroom edibles can result in a delayed onset of effects, typically between 30 minutes to 2 hours, and the effects can last for the same duration.
Another difference between the two is that when consuming magic mushroom edibles, the dose can be more consistent and accurate, as the mushrooms are processed into a form that can be measured and divided into specific doses. With magic mushrooms, the dose can be difficult to measure and can vary depending on the mushroom species and the individual mushroom.
How long does it take for shroom edibles to take effect?
The onset of effects for shroom edibles can vary depending on various factors, including the individual’s metabolism and the dose consumed.
