Headache after Mushroom Trips

19 posts in this topic

I've been experiencing light headaches post mushroom trips, it's fairly mild but persistent for days afterwards nonetheless. I am wondering if anyone has any remedies for this (aside from doing fewer trips). Much appreciated!

Are you making sure you're staying properly hydrated? I have problems with that while tripping. Apparently 90% of headaches are hydration related and between 70% and 80% of adults are somewhat dehydrated.

@Adodd  Thanks for responding! That's very possible I can "forget" to drink enough water at times. Maybe it's like a mini-hangover..

@puporing Yeah its especially easy to forget about during and the day after an experience. Next time make sure you're hydrated and update me on this post if it worked.

@puporing I get violently nauseous and get bad headaches during my trips.

If you can relax and feel into the headache with equanimity then it will dissolve. Try inquiring into the root/source of the headache

@Raptorsin7 It's not during the trip but afterwards. Almost like exhaustion in my head haha. But yes I will try to be more relaxed about it, wasn't an issue until recently.

Maybe try and notice what you're doing after the trip that you aren't doing on the trip. 

Whatever mental habits you're engaging in that account for the difference between your trip and your sober experience may be manifesting as the headache

@Raptorsin7 Yeah okay, I know for sure I am way more intensely focused during trips coz I easily get alot of rapid insights about various things, and almost always wish the trip was longer..

Could it be that the dose is too high?

Also, do you take any regular medication or high doses of other supplements/ herbs? Could be some interference upon the metabolism of the mushroom polyphenols with those meds. 

Could also be a particular strain you're sensitive to maybe?

@puporing  I drank at least 1 liter during my shroom trips to not get a hangover. Worked good.


Presence. Goodness. Feeling.

Not especially high I think just 3-5grams.

I take some vitamins and minerals but not very much/small amounts hmm.. they were mostly for the heavy metal detox protocol, no other meds but thanks for bringing that to my attention. What kind of meds like to interact with mushrooms?

Not sure yet haha, I have mostly been sticking with Golden Teacher, and tried one other strain. I'll have to experiment with this some more, I've just been loving GT so much. ?

Okay I'm going to try drinking more water next time and see how that goes! 

Thank you everyone for your helpful suggestions. :)

I get the craziest shroom hangovers where basically my brain will be working hella hard, leaving me basically dopamine fried for the next day or so. As trips went on, my brain's capacity to handle it seemingly went up because the hangovers tamed themselves down.

 

I'll definetly try to remember to drink more water,even though I already drink lots. See if that makes a difference. 

 

Make sure you sleep a lot. I believe that has made a difference for me. Be going into a trip really well rested, and then go to bed early. 


 How can I show my appreciation for life in this moment?

@AleksShamles Good to know it helps you with the headaches! I'll hold off on that for now since it's not so bad yet. : )

That's what my intuition is telling me too haha.

Makes sense, I usually sleep more after but before sounds like a solid plan.

@puporing Stay hydrated during the trip. Eat carb heavy meal in the morning or prior to your trip. I usually eat oatmeal, bowl of rice, or oven baked potatoes 4hrs before the trip. So I have enough energy and fuel for the trip. 
 
Also take good care of nutrition the day after your trips. Good supplementation of Omegas, Minerals and Vitamins. 
Also recommend eating walnuts the day after, like a handful. Really does the trick for me.

You probably know these things, just reminding. ??✨

@Vincent S Thank you very much for those tips! That actually helps a lot because some were saying to have an empty stomach for absorption, but it makes sense that you would also want more fuel not less and leaving a gap between food and the trip, and replenishment after. :)

@Adodd I upped my water intake this time and seems to have helped with the headache so far!
