This is a legit question that I got from one of my long time friends – can I smoke shrooms? While I’m not an expert on this topic, I figured it was worth my two cents so you could find out if indeed, mushrooms are smokable. It wouldn’t be whacky Wednesday without some bizarre blog update, now, would it?
Can You Smoke Mushrooms in a Joint or Bowl?
The consensus out there is that you cannot smoke mushrooms. It just doesn’t work that way. While you may find some people out there that tell you that you CAN get high smoking mushrooms, it’s a very small percentage of people out there that have that stance. I will go on record saying that I’m a marijuana advocate, and don’t really dabble in anything else, not even mushrooms.
Mushrooms are best consumed taken orally, like food. You can also blend them into a tea and drink them. As far as smoking them, I don’t even know you would go about that, other than grinding them up and rolling them in a joint or putting them in a bowl, which for starters, wouldn’t burn like grass does.
The other thought process out there is that the heat that would burn them will kill all of the psychoactivity they maintain, therefore getting rid of any reason to consume them.
I like to always look at every equation from three sides, so I consulted with one of my favorite cannabis forums, this one was called RollitUP, and these are some of the comments I found in a thread about this specific topic.
One forum poster had this to say:
tried it. smoked a half bag 1/8th of shrooms (libertys) and it did absolutely nothing.. however ate the other half 1/8th with a friend and guess what happened 30mins later..
trails. spinning. PUKE and i was high as freaking hell. friend was talking to matchsticks. hah!
But of course, like I said, there are other opinions, and another weighed in with this
i smoked 1/8th and tottaly tripped my brains out i didnt know how to open my door it was sweet i recomend it toall
The take I enjoyed the best was:
You Can…It will taste like shit…It will make Whatever u smoked it out of taste like shit…And your friend will call u an idiot for a year….Then u have to think to yourself IS it worth it?……….Just eat the shrooms lol Theres a better chance u will get high
So there you have it, a few opinions on if you can smoke shrooms.
Lastly, an opinion calls anyone a liar that says they tripped out after smoking shrooms. So it’s a highly intense debate we have going here, and there seems to be no end in near.
This leads me to ask the audience – has anyone out there tried smoking mushrooms?
