About Psilocybin Mushrooms
What do comedowns from psilocybin mushrooms feel like, and how can you feel better?
Similar to other psychedelics like LSD, there is not often a big physical comedown from psilocybin mushrooms. Most of the effects of the comedown from these drugs are mental and emotional. How long the comedown lasts and how unpleasant you feel can depend on many factors including what type of mushroom you took, how much and your state of mind when you used. The effects of mushrooms and their comedown usually disappear 24 hours after ingesting them.
