Can You Sleep on Shrooms?

Magic mushrooms do more than just alter your perception and make you see the world through a kaleidoscope. Research shows that magic mushrooms such as the Psilocybe cubensis or the golden teacher mushrooms may have permanent, positive effects on the brain.

Golden teachers contain psilocybin, a mind-altering compound capable of treating depression and anxiety. People who consume golden teachers and similar psilocybin mushrooms go on “trips” and report having a more positive mindset, feeling less self-centered, and becoming happier for months afterwards.

Can you sleep on shrooms?

Magic mushrooms make the brain more active. People who are under the effects of golden teachers will not be able to sleep for 6–10 hours afterwards. Some even joke the only way to sleep is to be put under general anesthesia.

This is because of the chemical imbalance of serotonin during the trip. This neurotransmitter is responsible for regulating appetite, mood, and sleep.

But how do dreams seem after tripping on golden teacher mushrooms?

People have reported experiencing more lucid dreams after tripping on stronger or higher doses of 3–4 grams of dried shrooms. One psilocybin mushroom user narrated his experience online.

“When I closed my eyes, I would dream that easily. Instantaneous. When I opened them, things from my dream would still be there… I tried to balance an enormous sphere that represented sanity and if it tilted, terror would surge through me.”
