It's important to keep in mind that not all magic mushrooms have the same strength level. This is because the concentration of active substances such as psilocybin can variate, in part because of the typology of the cubensis (not all cubensis are the same), and also because growing and storage conditions can influence psilocybin concentration, therefore, the kind of trip can variate.  Nevertheless, these trip levels are a good ''rule of thumb'' that can help you make sense out of the experience.  But before we start, some important legal considerations:

Warning

.

.

Levels 4 and 5 are recommended for experienced psychonauts.  If you are not used to the psychedelic experience we strongly recommend that you pass through each of the levels at different moments (at least with one month in between each experience)

Don't view this as a competition, there is no prize for reaching top levels, this is something that you will feel, so no rushing is necessary.  Some people never go over the second or third levels, and that is fine.  Always do things in moderation and responsibility.

As is the case with all medicine the earth has given us,  it is important to show respect and refrain from abusing the amazing power that Psilocybe Cubensis possess. This is why we have created the Responsible Use Section, take a look,
