When it comes to sleeping after magic mushroom and truffle sessions, opinion is split down the middle. Many people say that they have trouble sleeping after a trip, awake for hours long after the ‘fun’ has stopped. To a degree this would make sense, due to how psilocybin affects the brain. It causes an imbalance of serotonin during your trip, the chemical in your brain that regulates sleep, mood and appetite.
However, there are just as many people who claim the opposite; that they have no trouble sleeping after a magic mushroom and truffles trip. Amongst the people in this camp are several who go further. They state that not only do they not struggle to sleep, they struggle to stay awake. As well as this, a few testimonies via different message boards shows that one of the reasons people choose magic mushrooms over acid was that they could sleep after the trip.
It is not an easy question to answer, as many appear to have conflicting reports on the topic of sleep. We suggest planning your trip accordingly. You might be awake longer than intended, but that you might just as easily fall asleep when you want to.
