Can magic mushrooms be detected in a drug test?

Psilocybin Mushrooms and drug tests: Summary

The short answer is No!

Most of the standard drug test (either 5 or 7), done by various laboratories (usually for employment or other general use) do NOT test for Psilocybin or psilocin which are the psychoactive ingredient found in various magic mushroom products such as dried magic mushrooms, mushroom chocolate bars, microdose capsules, etc.

Because the body processes the mushrooms and their compounds relatively quickly, specific drug tests may need to take place promptly after ingestion for them to find any traces of the drug.

Please note that it is possible to specifically test for psilocybin or psilocin; however, this is very rare and is NOT part of the regular drug tests. When going for a drug test, they usually also tell you what is being tested for.

Magic Mushrooms and Urine Tests

Urinalysis is the most commonly used type of drug testing involved in common or everyday purposes, such as screening job applicants, and magic mushrooms won’t show up in them.

The most popular urine test is a 5-panel test. It usually detects:

  • THC (the psychoactive compound in marijuana)
  • Cocaine
  • PCP
  • Amphetamines
  • Opioids

Other screenings may include more panels, which involves testing for categories such as:

  • Barbituates
  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines
  • MDMA
  • Propoxyphene
  • Methadone
  • Methaqualone

Mushrooms generally won’t show up on a 5-panel test. Same goes for 8-, 10-, and 12-panel tests.

Other types of tests

In addition to urine, blood, hair, or saliva can also be used to test for certain drugs.

A hair test can detect drug use, including the use of mushrooms, from the last 90 days. However, this type of drug test isn’t very common due to the cost involved.

Mushrooms are metabolized too quickly to be detected by a blood or saliva test.

Best Psilocybin Mushrooms strain

There is not a single best Psilocybin mushroom strain out there, it depends on a large number of factors such as body weight, set and setting, the intended type of trip or experience, and experience level to name a few.

Koya Shrooms carries a large variety of magic mushroom strains, among two of the most popular and best selling Psilocybin mushroom strains are: Penis Envy and Golden Teacher.

Golden Teacher Strain

Golden Teacher mushrooms are among the most popular strains of Psilocybin mushrooms out there. They are perfect for beginners due to to their mild potency. Highly recommended for first time users, but this does not mean that the psychedelic veterans can’t benefit from it.

Their effects include visual distortions, enhanced colors, lightness or giddiness, and powerful emotions. People also report feeling euphoric, spiritually in-tune, and perceptive when taking Golden Teacher mushrooms.

Golden Teacher trips can often be revelatory, or at least insightful. As suggested by their name, these mushrooms impart powerful lessons that remain even after the experience.

For information about the dosage refer to our shrooms dosage guide.

Penis Envy Strain

Penis Envy is among of the strongest cubensis mushrooms out there. For instance, a single gram of Penis Envy Cubensis causes potent effects that could be equal to two or three grams of weaker mushrooms. For this reason, we recommend starting with a lower dose, especially if you’re a beginner. The consciousness-altering effects of a psilocybin mushroom can be overwhelming and spooky for someone with little experience.

This strain is relatively larger when compared to Golden Teacher signaling their potent effects.

For information about the dosage refer to our shrooms dosage guide.

Mushroom Dosage

Introduction to shroom dosage

(Note: this post is about dried magic mushrooms, refer to this post for microdosing mushrooms)

There are a lot of factors to consider when considering Magic mushroom dosage. Potency of mushrooms vary from strain to strain for example Penis Envy strain is stronger compared to Golden Teacher. Other factors to consider is content of your stomach: how much have you had to eat that day and how long ago. As a general rule of thumb, the emptier your stomach, the better mushroom’s effect will be. Additionally, try to avoid taking mushrooms right after a big meal, wait for a few hours before you take them.

Potency of Psilocybin mushrooms can also vary greatly from one batch to the next and from one part of a single mushroom to another part (cap and stem can have different concentrations). Because of these natural variations, chopping or grinding up multiple mushrooms and homogenizing the material can help reduce the risk of unexpectedly strong (or weak) doses.

Mushroom Dosing

Trip Level 1: Happy go lucky

Recommended dosage: 0.8 – 1 g. dried mushrooms – The effects are mild and similar to being high on weed. Music starts to feel better, strangers seem more friendly and the mind is able to lose some control. You could have mild visual enhancements or some sound distortion, but these will be subtle.

Trip Level 2: Beginner’s paradise

Recommended dosage: 1 – 1.5 g. dried mushrooms – Consistent sensorial accentuation, colors becoming brighter and a light body high. Level 2 can be a more intense form of Trip Level 1, but with the right dosage it can be something more. Be prepared for the beginnings of visual and auditory hallucinations: objects moving and coming to life along with geometrical forms when you close your eyes. It will be harder to concentrate and communicate and you will notice an increase in creativity along with an enhanced sensation, lightness and euphoria.

Trip Level 3: Classic psychedelic trip

Recommended dosage: 1.5 – 3 g. dried mushrooms – Trip Level 3 is great for beginners who want to jump in the “real” psychedelic experience, without overdoing the dosage. This level is where visual hallucinations along with the appearance of patterns and fractals will be evident. No more hinting or subtle flashes of visuals, it’s happening for real. The surface of the object you’re observing will become shiny and moving, as your field of depth is altered. Distortions in the aptitude to measure the passage of time, might cause an 1 hour to feel like an eternity.

Level 4: Flying with the stars

Recommended dosage: 3 – 4 g. dried mushrooms – Strong hallucinations take over: a psychedelic flood of shapes, contours and colors will blend together and hit the shores of your consciousness. There’s no stopping the waves in Level 4. There will be some moments when you will lose touch reality. Random, non-existent objects will appear and the concept of time will fade away to the background. Intriguing to some, scary to others, this is the level where psychedelics can really be powerful, life-altering and mind expanding. Keep in mind that this dosage is only recommend for experience users.

Level 5: Total loss

Dosage: Anywhere from 4 – 5 g. dried mushrooms – Total loss of contact with reality. Intense hallucinations. Great distortion of the perception of the space and time. Disappearance of the logical and known perception of the reality. Great introspection and loss of identity. Sensitive, emotional and personal experiences impossible to describe, once the psychedelic experience ends. Level 5!

 

These are still a guide at best and experience can still vary based on set and setting, for more information refer to this post (coming soon).

How long do shrooms stay in your system?

How Long Does Psilocybin Stay in Your System at a glance

  • Urine: Up to 24 hours
  • Blood: Less than 24 hours
  • Hair: Up to 90 days

Psilocybin Mushrooms breakdown

After ingesting hallucinogenic mushrooms, aka Magic Mushrooms, the body breaks them down into their active components, such as psilocybin and its active form, psilocin. These compounds act on the brain to produce changes in perception and behavior.

Psilocin is typically cleared from your system in around 5 hours, but psilocybin takes nearly three times longer, taking up to 15 hours to clear.

Again, this is different for everyone, but it’s unlikely to find any traces of mushrooms in a person’s system after 24 hours.

That said, research shows that in some people, a trace amount can be detected for up to a week.

However, the entire process is relatively quick:

  1. Changes in emotion, perception, and consciousness can start in as little as 20–30 minutes after ingestion. The changes can last for several hours, depending on numerous factors such as the dose and the individual.
  2. At the same time, the body begins processing the compounds quickly. The kidneys excrete the compounds, which then leave the body in the urine.
  3. The half-life of a drug is how long it takes the body to break down or excrete half the total amount a person ingests. With this in mind, the half-life of psilocin is 50 minutes.
  4. About 66% of the compounds get excreted from the body within 3 hours.
  5. After 24 hours, the compounds are no longer detectable in the urine.

Factors that affect how long mushrooms stay in your system

You can’t predict exactly how long a drug will stay in your system because no two bodies are exactly alike. There are several facts that affect how long mushrooms stay in your system, most of which are out of your control.

  • Dosage: A higher dosage may remain in the body for longer as it takes more time to break down. For more information, refer to this post.
  • Potency of the shrooms: More potent mushrooms may have more active compounds, making them last longer in the body. For example, Penis Envy Mushrooms are stronger when compared to the Golden Teacher Strain
  • Type of mushrooms: There are a variety of hallucinogenic mushrooms, each with its own composition that may affect how long it stays in the body.
  • Personal tolerance level: Taking some compounds regularly or in larger dosages to feel the same effects may increase the time they take to leave a person’s system.
  • Preparation method and form: How a person prepares shrooms; for example dried magic mushrooms, shroom chocolate, microdose capsules, or in tea, may affect their potency and subsequent excretion time.
  • Any food or drink taken with the mushrooms: Factors that affect digestion, such as eating shrooms with other foods or on an empty stomach, may affect the time it takes for them to leave the body.
  • Metabolism: An individual’s metabolism may affect how quickly the compounds leave the body. Several other factors may influence a person’s metabolism, such as age and body composition.
  • Disorders in the kidney: A kidney with reduced function may take more time to metabolize and excrete these compounds.
  • Age: Younger people tend to have higher metabolisms which will break down the compounds faster
  • Overall health: usually healthier people have better metabolism
  • Stomach content
  • Body size
