How Much Do Shrooms Cost? 

So, how much do shrooms cost? Unlike cannabis, the cost of magic mushrooms fluctuates based on the season. Prices could also vary from country to country and even city to city.

But now that magic mushrooms are becoming more available, growers provide more regular cropping from controlled environments, so the seasonal impact on the price of shrooms is negligible.

We’ve compiled a quick reference for how much shrooms go for in Canada.

How Much is a Gram (1g) of Magic Mushrooms?

1 gram of shrooms

Cost Per gram of shrooms: $12-$15

One gram of magic mushrooms is roughly one stem and cap or two small stems and caps. It would fit approximately in the center of the palm of your hand. This dose of shrooms is just over a microdose, and you will feel light to moderate effects.

How much is an eighth (8th) of shrooms?

Cost of an Eighth of Shrooms: $35-50

An eighth (8th) of shrooms is 3.5x the amount of the 1 gram. So, three standard-size caps to 5 smaller caps. You could cover the palm of your hand in caps for visual reference. This amount of magic mushrooms taken in one dose will have considerable psychedelic effects.

How Much is a Quarter?

Tidal Wave Cubensis Dried Mushrooms

A quarter (7g) of shrooms is 2x the amount of an eighth. About six standard-size caps to ten smaller caps. This amount of magic mushrooms will be enough for a couple of trips or shared between two people.

Cost for a Quarter Ounce of Shrooms: $65-95

How much is a Half Ounce?

Albino Rhino Cubensis Dried Mushrooms

Half an ounce (14g) of magic mushroom caps and stems should last you a few trips or be shared among a group of people. Depending on the thickness of caps and stems, the number can vary; it’s best to use a scale to weigh your product if you’re concerned.

Cost for Half an Ounce of Shrooms: $110-175

How Much is an Ounce (oz) of Shrooms?

Cost Per ounce of shrooms: $99-$350 on average (depending on the type)

An ounce (Oz) of magic mushrooms is a considerable amount (28 grams) and should not be taken in one dose – it would give new meaning to the term “heroic dose” (5 grams). This amount will fill the bottom of a sandwich baggie a couple of inches. Depending on the mushroom strain, it might be 20-30 caps and stems.

Psilocybin Mushroom Prices Per Pound:

You are unlikely to be able to purchase a pound of shrooms online; most people won’t be buying this much, but the price range for a pound of magic mushrooms is about $1000-$2000, retail.

Prices for Types of Psilocybin Products:

Whole Dried Psilocybin Mushrooms

So, what do dried magic mushrooms cost? We’ve broken down the basics above, but there are several factors you need to consider when you buy dried shrooms. The pricing may vary, so you’ll want to know why the costs may vary:

dried shrooms cost
Dried Cubensis Shrooms

Whole dried shrooms come in different gram sizes and species, and you may find that some species are more expensive than others. Golden Teacher, for example, is a popular type of shroom and quite potent, making it cheaper as growers prefer it for being in high demand.

In general, users have reported that the average shrooms price of an 8th can cost anywhere between $30-$50 when purchasing through a dealer. In Canada, the cost of shrooms is roughly $99-$250 for an ounce, although this can vary, as mentioned earlier, depending on the source and other factors. 

Buying whole dried shrooms online is relatively similar to the pricing reported by dealers, with 3.5 grams (the equivalent of an 8th of an ounce) on average being approximately $30 and an ounce roughly $200.

Most Psilocybe Cubensis strains like Golden Teachers, Blue Meanies or Mexicana can be picked up relatively cheaply as they are in high supply at certain times. Cubensis is the most popular species of psilocybin mushrooms, commonly referred to as “cubes.”

But our advantage is selection; some of our shrooms can go as high as $350 for an ounce (Albino Penis Envy mushroom), so it depends on what you are looking for. Prices can fluctuate with online dispensaries, especially sales or membership loyalty discounts.

For example, you can save 20% off the cost of shrooms with our discount code TFG. You can also refer friends, saving you much more over time.

How Much Does Microdosing Psilocybin Cost?

Microdose shrooms come in a few different forms; you can purchase dried shrooms and weigh out small amounts or purchase microdose capsules, tea, tinctures or gummies.

Microdose only means taking a small enough dose (500mg or less) not to feel the psychedelic effects.

So, the cost of microdosing can vary. We recommend using microdose capsules as they are the most convenient option. Microdose capsules can also contain other beneficial ingredients; their price is roughly the same as chocolate, from $15-20 per gram.

How Much Do Shroom Edibles Cost?

Edibles include products infused with magic mushrooms, such as chocolates, gummies and teas. Edibles are typically weighed per mg, so it’s tricky to compare the prices with whole dried shrooms, but as a rough guide, microdosing capsules can cost up to $80 for, on average, a bottle of 30 pills.

Similar to cannabis, Shroom edibles are slightly more than buying dried, as they have chocolate and manufacturing costs. $15 / gram of shroom chocolate, up to $40 / 3 grams. This is a reasonable price, as making your own can be a hassle! Also, if you do it wrong, you can affect the psilocybin content.

Edibles like psilocybin chocolates tend to be cheaper, but the prices can increase if they contain high levels of magic mushrooms. Since pricing for food products is based on the volume of mushrooms, the higher the product dosage, the greater the value. For example, one edible could have an eighth or quarter ounce of shrooms. Remember this, as you don’t want to trip too hard!

Other factors include the quality of the edible’s flavour or how fancy the packaging is.

Ways to Buy Magic Mushrooms

There are two main ways: buy shrooms online in Canada or at a local psychedelics dealer. The pricing can vary based on certain types. Buying online from a dispensary can be easier as you can browse other sites and compare the prices per gram or ounce before purchasing. 

When you buy from a dealer, many aspects come into play, such as their product demand, the ease of acquiring magic mushrooms to sell, and the type of shrooms they offer. 

Another factor to consider when determining the price of shrooms is the form you want to buy them. For example, whole dried shrooms are often priced very differently from edibles or microdosing options, so it’s a good idea to know what type of form you want before researching prices.

Are Magic Mushrooms Legal in Canada?

Are you questioning whether are shrooms legal in Canada? Magic Mushrooms aren’t technically legal in Canada; they are prohibited for sale and possession under Canada’s Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. But, like anything, they have a price, so now you know.

Cost of Foraging for Magic Mushrooms


What better magic mushroom than the one you’ve found on your own?

There are many guides to help you find mushrooms growing wild. The great thing about foraging is the cost can be outweighed by the fun you’ll have foraging for the right fresh mushrooms. Many people forage mushrooms, so someone searching for psilocybin mushrooms wouldn’t look out of place.

Would you like to know how much shrooms cost when foraging? Just your time, supplies and gas money.

You should be careful, as many mushrooms resemble psilocybin varieties, which may contain another dangerous drug.

Cost of Growing Shrooms (With a spore kit or naturally)

Lastly, growing shrooms can provide the desired product, but it takes time and patience!

Home-Grown Magic Mushrooms

There is a cost associated with growing shrooms from a spore kit: the container, the substrate, the spore kit itself, the lighting, and not to mention your time. The more you practice, the cheaper per gram; your costs are spread over more products. Anyone can do it too!

Growing shrooms is entirely legal in Canada, as well as the spore kits for sale. Cultivating them is fine, but this is the part that converts them to an “illegal” substance.

We get asked often how to grow shrooms and the cost associated; once you master this like experienced mycologists, the cost to grow shrooms is minimal, and you’ll have fun doing it. The process of growing mushrooms is a great experience and very rewarding.

Strains like Golden Teachers are easier psychedelic mushrooms to grow; you should research internet forums and growing websites to find psilocybin species that are easy to grow.

How Much Are Spores?

Spores are much less expensive than dried mushrooms, but you will need other supplies and time to grow them. The great thing is you can cultivate a large quantity of shrooms with spores.

Mushroom spores typically cost about $35 to $50 per strain.

How to Save Money on Psychedelic Mushrooms

So, you want to save money on your magic mushrooms? Think about this: the craziest thing is what legit private businesses are paying for psychedelics. Behavioural sciences professor Matthew Johnson says ONE GRAM can cost $7000 to $10k depending on different factors. We can’t imagine what they are paying for drugs like LSD or MDMA.

Because of local laws preventing drug abuse, psilocybin is a controlled substance. Like any drug, you can abuse it, but psilocybin as a drug is much less likely to be abused than a drug like nicotine.

So what do we recommend?

Buy from The Fun Guys to Save

The trick to how to find a shroom dealer and saving money when you purchase magic mushrooms is to pick the right company. Unfortunately, many black market companies aren’t regulated and don’t have a good supply from real mycologists or haven’t done the proper research, so their product is shit. In addition, the quality & quantity of psilocybin is poor, which can significantly affect your experience.
