Shroom & Magic MushroomHow to Overcome a Bad Magic Mushroom Trip

August 11, 2020by Dr.Jake Donaldson10

Hallucinogens or psychedelics have existed for centuries and used for a variety of reasons. Some people use it for artistic inspiration, spiritual pursuits, therapeutic uses, scientific research, or recreational purposes.

When taking a hallucinogen or psychedelic, users experience a common phenomenon known as “trips.” Hallucinogenic trips are hallucinations that result in a range of feelings that can last between 9 to 12 hours. This means that people can experience both good and bad things while under the influence of these hallucinogens. The bad experiences are commonly referred to as “bad trips.”

In this article, we’re going to elaborate on what a bad trip is, the causes behind it, and what you can do to overcome it.

What is a Bad Trip?

A bad trip is an unpleasant or frightening experience triggered by psychedelic drugs like LSD or magic mushrooms. The feelings experienced during a bad trip can range between mild anxiety and alienation to absolute terror, loss of one’s self-esteem, or complete entrapment. Even worse is when that bad trip can last as long as a good trip, usually from 9 to 12 hours.

Some of the reasons why people experience bad trips include:

  • A person’s mindset
  • Inexperience
  • A more significant dose then one could imagine
  • Lingering internal conflict in personal issues
  • The immediate environment

As for what causes a bad trip, some of the reasons include:

  • Taking a hallucinogenic in higher doses. Taking two to three grams of dried mushrooms is deemed to be a high dose.
  • Being in excessively stimulating settings
  • Not drinking much water
  • Not staying with someone who doesn’t use the drug
  • Taking alcohol with a psychedelic drug at the same time
  • Being in an adverse emotional state right before or while using psychedelic drugs

Although your chances of having a bad trip will be less when you avoid these risks, the adverse effects can still occur when using a psychedelic drug. Even those who’ve been using these drugs for several years, and who’s never experienced a bad trip in their lives can end up getting one anyway.

Bottom line, there’s no way to stop a bad trip from happening no matter what psychedelic drug or hallucinogen you’re using. So the best thing for you to do is to cope up with the effects.

Here are some of the best ways to help you cope with a bad magic mushroom trip:

Ways to Cope with a Bad Trip

1. Tell Yourself It’s Not Real

When taking a hallucinogenic drug, just remind yourself that most of what you see isn’t real or genuine. Therefore, don’t go acting on things that actively drive your impulses even though almost nothing that you see is there.

2. Go To a Safe‌ ‌Environment‌ ‌And‌ ‌Try‌ ‌To‌ ‌Relax‌

Another way to deal with a bad trip is to go to a place that’s completely safe from your delusions. Also, can act on whatever you’re experiencing as much as you like.

3. Get a Friend Who’s Not Under The Influence To Help You Out

The wisest thing perhaps anyone can do is to be accompanied by someone, like a close friend or family member (especially those not under the influence) to help you out.

4. Never Self-medicate

Taking any other drugs, then magic mushrooms or any different kind of drugs will make you feel worse and not better. Including a psychoactive substance like alcohol will only aggravate our negative feelings instead of getting them under control.

    I myself have never had a bad trip or have ever witnessed anyone having a bad trip… I think its just your feelings during the trip like unpleasant Ness or uneasiness that people might be feeling that make people think they are having a bad trip and then maybe that triggers like people into thinking only about scary things or Idk I don’t understand a bad trip or what would cause you to have one even lol, I do like mixing mushrooms and acid and also smoking and using edibles made with thc-a while I’m using so maybe these would have an effect on my system for sure and my trips also.
