Hey freaky folk, we have a new psychedelic groove to check out! Just in case you thought Amanitas or Psilocybins are the beginning and end of psychedelic shrooms, TRE House has assembled a blend of… random stuff which has a psychedelic effect when taken in gummy form. Now, I can definitely appreciate the effort to seek out new psychedelic substances without legal restrictions and bring them to the market. This is the kind of bold ambition we like to see in the legal psychoactive market. But being a market innovator comes with inevitable risks, and this experimental formula may need fine-tuning.
However, at their base line, these do indeed have a psychedelic effect. Unfortunately, there’s also the possibility of gastric upset, but I did take the max recommended dose. TRE House Magic Mushroom Gummies go in a x15 count bag for $24.99, enough for two full-strength trips.
See my “follow up” video where I get to the bottom of the effects and which ingredients contribute.
- Potent effects
- Meets expectations
- Fairly brief trip at about 5-6 hours
- Taste fine
- A reasonable price for a quantity that may equate to multiple “trips” per bag
- Can produce gastric upset (very common for shrooms and psychs)
- Hit unlike any known mushroom (later ingredient investigation explains this)
- May never know exactly what I took and how much
Recommendations: Redo packaging: Leave off the smiley-face tomfoolery and tell us how many milligrams of every active ingredient are in these. We’re on the cutting edge of psychedelic research here; we don’t need anything to be “proprietary.”
A Tremendous Act of Faith
There are very few companies I’d trust to give me “something psychedelic” and leave out all further details, but luckily TRE House is one of them. We’ve reviewed them extensively here, and they’ve never demonstrated any but the highest quality standards, this time included. Nevertheless, when I found out I would be reviewing gummies that were *not* anything I’d tried before, I rushed to research as much as possible. The next week, here comes a box to my door, and on the spot, I figured to get this over with. The bag contained a gauge on the back which recommended 1-3 gummies for mild effects, 4-6 for moderate effects, and 7+ for heaviest. I shrugged and dutifully gulped down seven.
Can I just take a minute to say: Most people can’t do this. Some people are too anxious to take psychedelics at all, and with this brand new market, many more are going to at least tread lightly. So to put a product out there like this with mystery packaging requires an act of blind faith on the part of the buyer. With that said, we later piece some clues together to find out what’s up with the mystery packaging.
What is in TRE House Magic Mushroom Gummies?
The phrase in the nutritional information says, “proprietary nootropic mushroom blend – 22.5MG.” First off, the kind of psychedelics that make you hallucinate are not nootropics, which is an entirely different effect where you’re trying to boost your brain’s cognitive capacity. So this could be misleading for somebody already. Next, the smiley-chart describes the effects as “day at the office,” “day at the park,” etc.
If you hunt down TRE House’s own site you will eventually find, at the bottomish end of a wall of text, the statement:
They still don’t say how much of what ingredient, so we’re still kind of lost. But what are these active ingredients, because many of them don’t look like mushrooms at all? Let’s get our Wiki fingers typing and find out.
5-HTP – “a naturally occurring amino acid and chemical precursor as well as a metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitter serotonin.” I do know that serotonin receptors are thought to play a role in the effects of psilocin. 5-HTP is an over-the-counter drug that is used as a sleep aid. Not conclusively studied and also – not a mushroom. Very good candidate for psychedelic effects.
Rhodiola Rosea – Basically a blossoming weed that grows all over the world and is used for culinary purposes. While it does contain a menagerie of 140 chemical compounds, it hasn’t been demonstrated to do much of anything. Not only that, it’s – wait for it – not a mushroom.
Lion’s Mane – We all know that one, it was the only thing on this list I was familiar with. Lion’s Mane is definitely a mushroom, but it has no psychedelic effect. Its primary use has been culinary, with only recent years revealing research that suggests it improves memory and concentration. This is a nootropic, not a psychedelic, so its place in a mixture intended to be psychedelic is questionable. I submit that the two effects do not mix; if a person has a negative experience from psychedelics, the last thing they need is a nootropic making the effects sharper and more ingrained in memory.
Mimosa Hostilis Root – A fern plant found growing mostly in South America. Hang onto your hat, because I said “effect like DMT” in my review video when I did not know the following fact: Mimosa is a known entheogen: “Dried Mexican Mimosa tenuiflora root bark has been shown to have a dimethyltryptamine (DMT) content of about 1-1.7%.” Ooooh! So I did feel a “DMT effect”! Great, we have our psychedelic. Also not a mushroom.
Phenylethylamine Hydrochloride – Phenylethylamine is a naturally occurring chemical compound, which can act as a minor neurotransmitter. Among other places, it’s found in chocolate. So far an unlikely candidate for a party drug, and also – wait for it again – not a mushroom.
Cyanocobalamin – This is plain old vitamin B12. I guess if it goes in a Monster, it’s fair game as a psychedelic? Not a mushroom. Also not a psychedelic, albeit it’s often dumped into energy formulas because it turns out a B12 deficiency leads to fatigue.
Cholecalciferol – This is plain old vitamin D3. Also, not a psychedelic, not a mushroom.
So there we have unraveled the mystery. I took some DMT with some laboratory-synthesized serotonin precursor. What was all the business with the smiley chart and “proprietary formula”? Well, it turns out that Mimosa root bark is legal by itself, but illegal to extract DMT from it. So the strategy is probably one of not drawing too much attention to this product, for fear US enforcement barges in to raid dispensaries before they get the full story. An unfortunate reality in this business is that you can do everything right and still be arbitrarily shut down by random street cops with a chip on their shoulder.
Well, now that we’ve solved the Scooby-Doo Mystery Mushroom Ingredients, the proof is in the pudding:
How Do TRE House Magic Mushroom Gummies Feel?
Trippy! Unfortunately, that was accompanied by a gastric upset. A thing I can normally prepare for when – I do not apologize for harping on it – I know what I’m taking! Stomach aches and psychedelic mushrooms go together like smoking and coughing, so it’s not unusual, but I can’t prep for an unknown variable.
But lemme break it down by the hour. This went approximately from noon till 6PM-ish.
- Hour 1: Waiting for liftoff
- Hour 2: Liftoff, but sharp nausea. Fought it for a while, then went to lay down. Most intense visual distortions occurred during this hour as well. If I weren’t an experienced psychonaut, I would have been prone to a bad trip right here.
- Hour 3: The miracle of modern ginger ale and smoking a bowl of CBD-rich hemp tamped down the nausea. Relieved, I frolicked about on an energetic psychedelic buzz. This was the best part.
- Hour 4: In rapid order, I made an eventful trip to the restroom, where the gummies left my system with extreme prejudice. Then I was suddenly hungry and devoured a buffet meal in the kitchen. Then had to pay a second visit to the restroom, which was also eventful.
- Hour 5: Started to come down. Kind of bummed that I didn’t get to enjoy more high with less nausea. Made video.
Throughout this experience, I have the following observations:
- Unlike some psychedelics, this did not slur my speech nor make me dizzy or uncoordinated
- The post-peak was more pleasant. The lead up to the peak was like being strapped into a tilt-a-whirl with a kaleidoscope taped to my face.
- I was tentatively in good spirits, but wouldn’t call the effects euphoric; the bowl of weed I smoked might have contributed more to my feeling.
- The visuals took the form of geometric fractals which I saw in hypnagogic fashion whenever I closed my eyes.
- Felt fatigued but not sleepy
- It was over in six hours
- Left me with some minor muscle aches – again a common psychedelic side effect
- Overall left me with “brown acid at the rave” vibes
So, believe it or not, after all that – I had a fair time. I didn’t expect miracles, but at least I didn’t get burned. Since I took the “heroic dose” so you don’t have to, I expect a lower dose might find the sweet spot between no nausea but still seeing fractals.
I Recommend TRE House Magic Mushroom Gummies Anyway
At the end of the day, it delivered pretty much everything promised on the packaging, albeit cryptically. I’d recommend starting with smaller doses in the 2-4 range and working your way up to judge your tolerance level. That is to say, if you have no other options for legal psychedelics and you’re tired of Amanita Muscaria, try these. But I also wouldn’t put them as being better than LSD, psilocybin, or even Amanitas. They are what they are: a proprietary formula that does something to your head.
