Yo, what’s good, it’s ya boy Dan. You’re probably wondering how long a psychedelic trip lasts and how to sober up quick. Well, don’t worry fam, I got you covered.
So picture this, you’re on some magic shrooms talking about the universe with your homie when your boss hits you up like “where you at, we need you at work ASAP!” and suddenly those trippy visuals ain’t so fun no more. Or maybe you just wanted to have a chill time on your own but now you’re feeling agitated and uneasy. Whatever the case may be, if you want to end your psilocybin trip early, here’s what you can do.
Now before we get into it, let me give you some background on this mysterious substance. Bad trips on shrooms are pretty rare, my dudes. Psilocybin usually makes you feel euphoric, helps you gain insights and enlightenment, and brings about feelings of love and happiness. You might even see things in a whole new light and feel giggly and giddy during the trip. Sure, hallucinations may happen but they’re usually not mistaken for reality.
But check it, the duration of your mushroom trip depends on how much you take. If you’ve popped less than 5mg of psilocybin (that’s under 0.8 grams of dried shrooms), your trip might last around six hours. If you take between 5-15mg (0.8 grams to 2.4 grams of dried shrooms), expect seven hours of tripping. But if you take anything more than that, you’re in for a solid 7.5-hour trip. And just so you know, the timer starts once them effects kick in, not when you swallow the shrooms.
Now let’s say you’re six hours deep into your trip and you wanna sober up. Best bet is probably to wait it out cuz there’s no way to rush the process. But if it’s a bad trip and you’re feeling unsafe or uncomfortable, try working with the mushrooms to get to a better place instead of trying to fight off the effects entirely. First thing’s first though: head back home or somewhere that feels like a safe haven for ya’ll. Bad trips can give off mad danger vibes so make sure wherever you are feels secure af. Maybe invite a trusted friend over or munch on some fruit while lying down and listening to some tunes. See, psilocybin is all about taking a journey into uncharted territory which can feel overwhelming at times so surrounding yourself with familiar things can help calm ya nerves.
If that’s not cutting it for ya and you really wanna speed up the end of your trip, go for a walk or jog around the block cuz that’ll get your body’s metabolism revved up which will help process the drugs faster. Psilocybin gets cleared outta your system through glucuronidation which is basically a fancy way of saying metabolizing drugs. Eating foods like curcumin, resveratrol, grape seed extract, milk thistle, hawthorn, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, apples and kale can all support this process and help speed up how fast your body processes psilocybin.
But if none of that sounds appealing or ya don’t wanna wait around for six hours to sober up naturally then consider taking the Trip Stopper 3000 which are basically these dope little packs that contain white pills with maltodextrin to reduce bad trip effects and dark pills with valerian that help ease your comedown so it’s real smooth like butter baby.
Listen y’all, bad trips ain’t cool but at least nobody’s ever died from ’em and neither will you. This too shall pass by tomorrow. Stay safe out there my Gs!
