So most experts agree, shroom trips last between 4 to 6 hours. There’s a number of factors that impact when your peak is how long it lasts, etc. but one of the most important things to remember is if you have what is a potentially a life altering moment during a trip, when you are coming down you will likely be extremely susceptible to having hallucinations that are caused more naturally by something like sleep deprivation, or natural wandering (call of the void).

And I don’t think I could give you an accurate timeline on any of my trips because I didn’t schedule anything but the worst trip of my life started at 9 pm and went through the night, it probably ended around three or 4 AM But I don’t remember sleeping. I do remember the next morning being quite bad however. Previous trips I had a newfound appreciation for things that would last a couple days, some people call it a glow or sparkle. After my worst trip I woke up with a harrowing feeling: like a stain or shadow was cast upon me. It took a long time to shake that off. I suffered from ptsd revisiting moments from the trip that would send me back into despair on a good day. I would literally feel like I was still tripping randomly like a trip with a trip (tripception) especially right afterwards. It’s gotten better, I think it’s been about 2 years since, but every once and awhile I feel a sinking feeling because a memory surfaced.

I will never do shrooms again because for all the fun trips I had one extreme experience ruined anything positive.

I knew where the shrooms came from, I knew what species they were, previous batches from the same spores were no where near the level of intensity that bad trip shrooms were. And it wasn’t just me, there were a total of 5 of us that went on that trip. We all drank the same tea prepped the same way split equally. Only one of us had a “good” trip.
