Combine Shrooms And Edibles For An Unforgettable Experience

Do Shrooms and Edibles Go Together? (Top Options, Usage, and Considerations)  

The rising availability and demand for both shrooms and edibles mirror an expanding interest in uncovering the therapeutic and recreational possibilities of these substances. Each form boasts its advantages and its fusion can yield an exceptional experience. This combination serves as a boon for psychonauts seeking heightened mushroom experiences or beginners wanting to mask the taste of mushrooms.

Key Takeaways:

  • The combination of edibles and shrooms amplifies the psychedelic effects.
  • Penis Envy cubensis is a potent strain that seasoned users can use with their edible intake.
  • Beginners can enhance their edibles by incorporating magic mushrooms into them instead of consuming them separately.

Magic Mushroom Strains 

Mycologists have extensively studied and genetically distinguished numerous subspecies, often called “strains.” The majority are various types of Psilocybe cubensis, commonly known as the “commercial Psilocybe.” 

While some argue that all Psilocybe cubensis strains induce similar effects, these strains can differ in potency, appearance, cultivation needs, and overall yield.

Penis Envy Cubensis

  • Origin: Terence McKenna discovered potent shrooms in the Amazon rainforest. 
  • Characteristics: Penis envy mushrooms have distinctive shapes, thick stems, and swollen caps with a deep blue base. 
  • Potency: The deep blue colouring at the base of penis envy mushrooms is a clear indication of their high psilocybin levels. Both psilocybin and psilocin levels reach as high as 2.90%. This potency exceeds the average Psilocybe cubensis by three to six times.

Golden Teacher

  • Origin: Many believe someone discovered Golden Teachers in the late 20th century. They are native to subtropical regions of Central and South America, Mexico, and the southern United States.
  • Characteristics: Golden Teacher psychedelic mushrooms have broad caps, pale to golden brown shades, and distinctive rings on their long and slender stems. 
  • Potency: Golden Teachers has moderate potency, usually ranging from 0.63% to 0.90% psilocybin. 


  • Origin: Alacabenzi mushrooms may be a blend of Psilocybe Cubensis Golden Teachers from Alabama and Psilocybe Mexicana, which gives them their name. They may also be a hybrid strain from a combination of Liberty Caps (Psilocybe semilanceata) and Golden Teachers.
  • Characteristics: Alacabenzi mushrooms have oversized, meaty caps with reddish-brown and thick, white stems.
  • Potency: They have moderate potency with 0.67% psilocybin and 0.02% psilocin. The total tryptamine level is 0.68%.


Edibles are food products infused with the psychoactive compounds of magic mushrooms. They offer a more palatable experience to make ingestion easier and more discreet.

Pairing Strains with Edibles for Optimal Experiences

Pairing mushrooms with edibles can occur in two ways. You can add the mushroom strain to the edible you will create or consume a magic mushroom edible with a shroom strain.

Penis Envy Cubensis with Chocolate 

Penis Envy (PE) is known for its potency, capable of inducing hallucinations even in small doses (1 to 1.5 grams). Combining PE strains with chocolate edible can intensify the psychedelic experience, especially if you’re planning to consume a substantial amount of the edible.

For newcomers, rather than combining magic mushrooms and shroom edibles, an alternative approach is to craft your chocolate edibles and incorporate PE mushrooms into the mix.

Golden Teacher with Gummies 

Golden Teacher is an ideal strain for beginners due to its gentle effects. This strain offers visually pleasing and mellow trips when combined with low-dose gummies.

Incorporating Golden Teacher mushrooms into gummies provides an opportunity to mask their taste. This method allows for creating microdosing edibles, which can be a preferable option to microdosing with dried mushrooms, which can be challenging.

Alacabenzi with Bites 

Alacabenzi mushrooms, known for their moderate levels of psilocybin, offer an accessible experience suitable for newcomers and psychonauts. Consuming them with shroom bites infused with intermediate to high doses of psilocybin provides a versatile option catering to a range of users.

You can also try incorporating these mushrooms into chocolate bites to mask the bitter taste of Alacabenzi. Ideal for an afternoon treat while unwinding at home, these infused snacks offer a prolonged experience, thanks to the metabolism associated with consuming them in this form.

Tips When Consuming Magic Mushroom Strains and Edibles

  • Ingest a dried mushroom and edible together if you are an experienced user.
  • Begin with a dosage ranging from 0.5 to 1.0 grams of dried mushrooms. This amount allows you to perceive the mushroom’s effects without overwhelming sensations. 
  • A moderate dose falls within the range of 2.0 to 3.0 grams. You’ll likely experience psychedelic effects while still maintaining a sense of self and the ability to navigate your surroundings. 
  • Always be in a familiar environment and find a trusted company. 
  • Dosage from 2.5 grams to 5 grams results in the onset of classic psychedelic effects. These include kaleidoscopic visuals, alterations in sensory perception, synesthesia, and ego dissolution.
  • Don’t consume shrooms daily, as you might develop tolerance to psilocybin quickly.

Set and Setting

“Set” describes your internal disposition when consuming psychedelics. It incorporates transient elements like mood, readiness, and anticipation alongside personality, life experiences, and self-perceptions.

The motivations driving consumption influence the trajectory of one’s experience. Establishing an intention provides a guiding principle throughout the journey. Embracing a mindset free from preconceptions encourages curiosity about the unfolding experience.

Setting encompasses the environment within which you experience a trip. It comprises tangible elements such as people, objects, buildings, and natural surroundings. It also includes more abstract factors such as sensory stimulation like music, the ambiance created by lighting, and the intangible yet palpable “vibes.”


The magical synergy between a potent magic mushroom strain and edibles can greatly enhance the experiences of psychonauts. It intensifies their journey without the necessity of increasing dosage. For newcomers, integrating the strain into an edible offers a smoother introduction compared to ingesting both a mushroom strain and an edible simultaneously. While edibles and shrooms possess individual potency, their combined effects can yield a prolonged and profound trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the duration of a shroom trip?

A magic mushroom trip lasts approximately 4-6 hours. After the trip, residual effects may linger for a few additional hours.

Are the effects of psilocybin edibles comparable to those of traditional magic mushrooms?

Psilocybin edibles induce predominantly similar effects to dried shrooms.

Certain commercially produced psilocybin edibles cater to microdosing. At this dosage, one might experience elevated mood, increased energy, heightened focus, and reduced anxiety without psychedelic effects such as sensory distortion or hallucinations.

The consumption mode can also influence the effects’ onset and duration. Ingesting mushrooms as tea results in a swifter but shorter-lived experience. 

What other benefits do edibles provide beyond their taste?

Edibles offer the advantage of managing some of the adverse side effects of mushrooms. For instance, many psilocybin-infused gummies contain pure psilocybin without any mushroom matter, thereby reducing the likelihood of experiencing nausea or stomach cramps.
