Magic mushrooms are typically sold by weight, most commonly in 3.5 gram, 7 gram, 14gram and 28 gram (1 oz) packages.
As the weight of magic mushrooms you purchase increases, your cost per gram falls. Based on prices in Frshminds’s product reviews section, prices typically run from about:
- $30 to $40 for 3.5 grams.
- $170 to $220 for 28 grams.
Some species of magic mushrooms cost more than others based on the good old fashion laws of supply and demand. Quite simply, some shroom species cost more because the demand for them is much higher or the supply is much lower. For example:
Harlequin Magic Mushrooms, one of the more potent species, runs between $59.99 – $229.99, depending on the quantity purchased, while some Psilocybe Cubensis Amazonian from the same vendor will cost you from $34.99 to $189.99 at the time of writting.
Another cost factor, which should need very little explanation, is the form factor of the shrooms. In other words, are you eating a psilocybin chocolate bar, drinking some tea or consuming a gummy.
Are you buying old school dried mushrooms? Gram for gram, these are the most cost effective.
As magic mushrooms get processed in to different products, like teas, capsules, gummies and chocolate, the cost per gram of mushroom goes up to account for the additional ingredients, processing and packaging to create the final product.
Geography is going to impact the cost of shrooms in two ways, transportation costs and legal risk.
From a transportation cost point of view, all things being equal, the shorter the distance magic mushrooms must travel from the grower to the end consumer, the lower the price will be.
Even with the recent wave of decriminalization of psychedelics in the United States, there is still a huge legal risk to being involved in the magic mushroom supply chain. Logically, these risks will be lower in jurisdictions where psychedelics are decriminalized, so in these areas, the answer to the question “How much do shrooms cost?” should be lower, but still high enough to compensation for the legal risks incurred by the seller.
