Magic Mushrooms Shrooms

Mushrooms Drug Testing

Magic mushrooms are quite similar in tone and effect to LSD. Users typically ingest these naturally-occurring fungi by eating it raw or dried, or turning it into a tea and drinking it. As these mushrooms contain varying amounts of the mind-altering substances psilocybin and psilocin, powerful psychedelic trips are a typical effect.

Magic Mushrooms and Drug Testing

Most corporate and sports testing programs use a basic drug test to check for 5 types of substances: amphetamines, cocaine, opiates, PCP and cannabinoids. It does not commonly test for the presence of psilocybin and psilocin, the primary psychoactive substances in magic mushrooms. The same goes for the extended employment drug tests employed by most companies.

However, testing for psiclocybin can be done once it is specifically requested, especially in cases of probation for a mushroom-related offense. These tests are more comprehensive and are ultimately more expensive than your standard drug test.

Passing Mushrooms Drug Tests

Unlike marijuana, psilocybin is not soluble in fat, and therefore will not stay in a user’s system for long. Within the first hour of use, psilocybin is converted into psilocin, which is then excreted within the first 8 hours. Portions, however, remain for up to seven days, and can be detected in the blood or urine. For anyone taking shrooms regularly, stopping use at least a week before a drug test may help them pass a mushroom drug test. But this, as with other methods of passing drug tests, is not foolproof.

Magic mushrooms are not without its dangers. You might choose the wrong type of mushroom and die from eating it. You might also ingest magic mushrooms that have gone bad. Bad trips can also happen, like they do with other hallucinogenic drugs. Your personal relationships and your job might even be in jeopardy because of your addiction to magic mushrooms.
