How to make your own DIY magic mushroom gummy bears?

Looking for a tasty way to enjoy the benefits of magic mushrooms? With a few simple ingredients and steps, you can easily create your own homemade DIY psilocybin-infused gummy bears. These psychedelic gummies provide a fun and convenient way to microdose or enjoy a full mushroom trip. While possessing psilocybin mushrooms is still illegal in most places, in locations where it has been decriminalized or legalized, making your edibles at home is a safe option. With this easy gummy bear recipe, you can customize your dosage, avoid additives, and save money while enjoying the pleasant effects of “shrooms” from the comfort of chewy candy.

Dehydrate and powder mushrooms

Since fresh mushrooms contain a lot of moisture, begin by dehydrating them thoroughly to preserve potency. Use a food dehydrator or bake at 200°F for 4-6 hours until cracker dry.  Next, grind the dried mushrooms into a fine powder using a blender, spice grinder, or mortar and pestle. This increases the surface area for better extraction store powder in an airtight container until ready to use.

 Strain mixture

Want to separate the mushroom gummies powder from your infused honey or oil. Line a mesh strainer with cheesecloth and place over a bowl. Carefully pour your honey or oil mixture through the strainer. Gather the cheesecloth and twist gently to squeeze out all the liquid. Discard the remaining mushroom material. You should be left with about 1/4 cup of psilocybin-infused honey or oil ready for your gummies.

Fill gummy bear molds

Lightly spray or grease your silicone gummy bear molds. Use a dropper to carefully fill each cavity in the mold with the liquid gummy mixture. Tap the molds gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles. If making larger or smaller gummies, only fill molds 1/3 to 1/2 full to account for expansion as they set up. Refrigerate molds for 30-60 minutes until completely set and firm to the touch.

Remove from molds and enjoy

Once your DIY magic mushroom gummy bears have fully solidified, gently remove them from the molds. Lightly dust with corn-starch or confectioner’s sugar if they are sticky. Store finished gummies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a month. Start with a low dosage your first time and see how a single gummy affects you before increasing the amount. Wait at least 60-90 minutes before taking another to allow psilocybin effects to manifest. Enjoy your homemade magic mushroom gummy bears safely and responsibly. Make sure to keep out of reach of children.

 Dosage guidelines

Dosage will depend on the potency of your mushrooms. Start very low, around 0.1-0.5 grams of dried shrooms per gummy. Increase slowly as desired. Here are some rough guidelines for using average-potency dried mushrooms:

  • Microdose: 0.10-0.25g
  • Mild effects: 0.5g
  • Moderate “trip”: 1-2g
  • Strong effects: 3g+

This DIY gummy recipe allows you to safely experiment with dosing and enjoy the unique benefits of mushrooms in a tasty, convenient form. Customize flavors with different juices, extracts, and food coloring.

Storing your gummy bears

Properly stored, your DIY magic mushroom gummies will retain full potency for up to a month when kept refrigerated in an airtight container. Make sure they don’t become moldy. For longer storage, keep them in the freezer for up to 6 months. Allow to thaw for 30 minutes before consuming if frozen.
