The primary psychoactive component of these mushrooms is the molecule psilocybin, which is quickly broken down by stomach acids into smaller molecules called psilocin. The drug does not typically last for more than six hours per dose, with one dose being about four grams. There are many ways you can ingest these mushrooms, including chewing them raw or boiling them in water to make tea.
