How Much Do Shrooms Cost?
Most people that start to explore the use of magic mushrooms share one question in common: “how much do shrooms cost?” The answer is that the cost can vary quite widely depending on a number of variables. Let’s review these variables so you can be more confident when you are in the market for them, Please remember that Frshminds does not condone the purchase of illegal substances.
Pretty obvious that the amount of magic mushrooms you buy will drive the cost! Magic mushrooms are typically sold by weight, most commonly in 3.5 gram, 7 gram, 14 gram and 28 gram (1 oz) packages.
Typically, as the weight of your magic mushroom 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 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. Potency matters alot here. For example, a quarter ounce of Harlequin Magic Mushrooms costs $60, while some Psilocybe Cubensis Amazonian from the same vendor will cost just $35.
Another cost variable to consider is the form of the ‘shrooms. In other words, are you eating a psilocybin chocolate bar, drinking some tea, consuming a gummy, or just eating old-school dried mushrooms?
Generally speaking, a raw magic mushroom will always be your most cost-effective choice per gram. As shrooms get processed into different products, like gummies or chocolate, the cost per gram goes up. The producer needs to charge more 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.
Transportation costs include the truck, driver, gas, warehousing, overhead, and more. Generally speaking, the shorter the distance magic mushrooms must travel from the grower to the 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 participate. Since these risks will be lower in jurisdictions where psychedelics are decriminalized, shrooms should cost less, as your seller doesn’t need to keep a lawyer on retainer! And of course, where it is not criminal to sell shrooms, more competitors will operate, further driving down the cost.
