How Much Does Psilocybin (Magic Mushrooms) Cost?

Medically Reviewed by Johnelle Smith, M.D on June 21, 2021

Psilocybin, commonly referred to as magic mushrooms or shrooms, is a hallucinogenic chemical that can be found in the dried or fresh leaves of certain types of mushrooms. They are somewhat expensive for a single dose but not considered addictive.

How Much Does Psilocybin Cost On The Street?

The cost of a single dose of magic mushrooms depends on what a person considers a dose and what their intended use is.

If a person is trying to trip, they are likely to take up to an eighth of an ounce as a single dose. This will cost around $30.

If a person is microdosing, they are going to take a much smaller amount. In this case, a single dose might only cost a few dollars.

While a dose of magic mushrooms may seem expensive, they are not considered addictive and are not typically abused with frequent use.
