How Long Do Shrooms Take to Kick in?

There are many factors that can affect how long it takes for shrooms to kick in. It’s important to understand the differences between each factor, so you can be more prepared for your experience. For example, the onset timeline can be drastically influenced by how you ingest mushrooms. The quickest method is using them in tea, especially lemon tek, as the mushrooms will be broken down and absorbed more quickly than whole mushroom powder. Taking them in capsules is also quite effective as the gelatin capsule acts as an added barrier between the mushroom powder and your stomach content. Whole mushrooms will take the longest to start working as they must be digested before entering the bloodstream.

It’s important to note that your mental state and environment will also influence the effects of psychedelic drugs, such as shrooms. It’s not recommended to use them when depressed, anxious or paranoid, as this will only worsen the experience and increase your chances of having a bad trip. Ideally, you should be in a comfortable and relaxed environment with people you trust and feel comfortable around.

It’s important to remember that it can take up to 90 minutes for the psilocybin in mushrooms to break down into the active metabolite, psilocin, that is then absorbed by your body. Once this happens, the effects of the mushroom begin to build and peak in about two hours after consumption. Afterward, the effects will begin to wear off in about six hours.
