If you’re prepared to pack your backpack and venture out on a safe and enriching journey, here are five indispensable tips for hiking while under the influence of mushrooms.

4. Bring Everything You Need for a Comfortable Experience.

5. Consider the Time of Day

Some prefer to trip during the daytime so that they can enjoy the beauty of nature under the sunlight, while others may prefer to trip at night, laying on the ground gazing at the stars and endless universe.

For this reason, it’s advised to take a day off after your trip and relax, take the time for yourself and. reflect on the insights you have gained from the psychedelic experience. Your mind needs time to rest and process things in a broader context. Once you’ve taken that time, you can fully savor all the novel experiences, insights, and memories that your journey brought you. Stay safe and enjoy the trip!
