How To Make Psilocybin Gummy Candy (2024)

What Are Psilocybin Gummies?

A psilocybin gummy, also known as a magic mushroom or shroom gummy, is a type of edible in the form of a gummy candy that contains psilocybin, the psychoactive ingredient found in magic mushrooms.

For some people, who do not like to eat their magic mushrooms or truffles raw, psilocybin gummies are an easy, tasty, and convenient way to enjoy the psychedelic effects of shrooms.

Psilocybin gummies can come in a variety of flavors, doses, and shapes, making them a popular option for those who want to experience magic mushrooms in a convenient, discreet, and sweet form.

To make them, psilocybin is extracted from magic mushrooms and infused into a gummy candy base, which we will be explaining how to do yourself later…

What Do Psilocybin Gummies Do?

Psilocybin gummies work the same way magic mushrooms and truffles do. They deliver psilocybin into the body, which is then converted to psilocin, binding to the serotonin receptors in the brain, and creates that world-renowned psychedelic experience. From altered perception, to moments of insight, to visual hallucinations, to feelings of empathy and connection with the world, the effects will vary from person to person, and depends on dosage too.

Psilocybin Gummies Vs. Other Ways to Eat Shrooms

Although all forms of shroom consumption have their charms, gummies have some novel advantages. Firstly, they are yummy. Many people dislike the flavor and texture of magic mushrooms and truffles so a sweet candy treat is a no-brainer. Secondly they are discreet — eating candy in public is super normal — chewing on a handful of dried shrooms isn’t really (yet…) so it makes the experience more private for the user. Additionally, gummies are far easier to transport than a flask of shroom tea! Thirdly, a pre-prepared gummy is a great way to know your dosage without having to work it out on the spot.

How Long Do Psilocybin Gummies Last?

Like all methods of consuming magic mushrooms the effects of psilocybin gummies can vary — but as a rule last between 4 to 7 hours +/-. The specific duration is dependent on dosage, and your own unique body-chemistry. Some people experience longer lasting effects, while others have shorter experience.

The factors that influence this longevity include:

Dosage: The more potency (higher levels of psilocybin) the gummy has, the longer the effects tend to last.(Dosage chart here)

Tolerance: People who have used magic mushrooms recently may experience reduced effects due to a build up of tolerance.

Metabolism: Everyone has a different metabolic rate, and this can influence how quickly psilocybin passes through your system.

Body weight: A low body weight can mean the effects of psilocybin can hit you harder. Conversely, a higher body weight can mean a trip lasts longer as the individual’s metabolism could be slower.

How Long Do Psilocybin Gummies Take to Kick In?

Depending on the factors listed above, psilocybin gummies can take anywhere between 20 minutes and 2 hours to kick in.

How To Make Psilocybin Shroom Gummies

Now, the moment you have been waiting for — we tell you how to make these sweet psychedelic (totally vegetarian) treats yourself!

Firstly, you will need:

How To Make Psilocybin Gummy Candy (3)


  • A silicone candy mold
  • A saucepan
  • A coffee grinder
  • A dropper, pipette, or small spoon
  • Cup
  • Bowl
  • Sieve


  • 60ml of fruit juice
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • ½ tbsp of agar agar powder
  • 2 lemons
  • 12 grams of dried mushrooms

We are basing this recipe on a silicon mold that makes 12 gummies. If your mold makes more or less, adjust accordingly. We are aiming for about 1g of shrooms per gummy — each gummy being around 5ml.

How To:

Step 1: Using a coffee grinder, grind your mushrooms into a fine powder. (A pestle and mortar also works if you are old school — however it will not produce as regular and precise results — which could affect dosage.)

Step 2: Squeeze your lemons into a bowl and pour your mushroom powder in, making sure it is totally submerged in juice. Let it sit for 20 minutes.

Step 3: Strain the lemon mixture through your sieve into a cup. Here you can either discard the soggy powder or use it in your gummies. The psilocybin-infused lemon juice should be enough though.

Step 4: Mix your sugar, fruit juice, and agar agar powder in your saucepan and bring to the boil.

Step 5: Boil for 2 minutes, stirring often.

Step 6: Give this solution a few minutes to cool down, and then mix in your psilocybin/lemon extract. Make sure you do not let this mixture cool down too much — agar agar sets fast, so be aware you have time to pour it into your mold before it sets.

Step 7: Using your dropper or spoon fill your molds, being careful not to let them overflow.

Step 8: Leave for about 10 minutes at room temperature. After this your gummies should be set!

Step 9: Remove your gummies from the mold and store in a container, such as a ziplock bag or mason jar.

Step 10: Enjoy!

A Note on Storage:

Gummies will store well for +/- one week in an airtight container in the fridge. For longer preservation store gummies in a ziplock bag in the freezer. Here they can last for up to 3 months — you can simply defrost them at your leisure!

Tips for the Best Psilocybin Gummies!

How To Make Psilocybin Gummy Candy (5)
  • Experiment to find your best flavor arrangement. Try different fruit juices — Apple? Mango? Even tomato! Try different sweeteners — Honey? Stevia? Date syrup? If you wanna get really sweet you could even sub the fruit juice for soda… cola psilocybin gummies anyone?
  • When dosing your gummies for the first time, start low. Your next batch can always be stronger!
  • Use quality ingredients — shrooms that were dried recently, and good quality fruit juice.
  • Pick a mold shape that is fun, but not too complicated to pop your gummy out of — you don’t want to lose half your candy because its stuck in the mold!
  • Just because they’re tasty doesn’t mean you should gobble them all at once! We like to keep a bag of normal candy nearby to satiate our sweetie cravings without messing up our desired dosage.
