How Long Does a Magic Mushroom Trip Last? 

The dose of magic mushrooms ultimately affects the duration of a magic mushroom trip. However, they generally last for somewhere between four to eight hours. 

A magic mushroom trip can be broken down into five phases:

  1. Come-up — The effects of magic mushrooms begin 20 minutes to 1 hour after consumption (depending on how they’re consumed). During this phase, the effects gradually increase in waves.
  2. Peak — The peak is when the effects of the mushrooms are strongest and most intense. This occurs 1.5 to 3 hours after consumption, depending on the consumption method and the individual.
  3. Plateau — After the peak, the effects of the shrooms stay stable for 2 to 4 hours.
  4. Come-down — The intensity of the mushrooms decreases slowly in waves until the individual regains a more normal sense of reality. This phase can last for 2 to 4 hours or more. 
  5. Afterglow — Once the psychedelic effects of the mushrooms have subsided, the individual may experience an “afterglow” or lingering positive effects, which can last for several hours or even into the following day. During this time, individuals can feel more introspective, emotionally open, or reflective.
