Here’s a list of commonly used shroom slang:
Slang Words Mushrooms

Hippie Flipping: mixing magic mushrooms with MDMA
Candy Flipping: mixing magic mushrooms with LSD (acid)

Visuals: the reality distortions and hallucinations experienced through your visual—and cognitive—senses after a psychedelic dosage
Ego Death: the perceived loss of boundaries between self and environment
Good Trip: a “trip” that one experiences as positive, healing, and often therapeutic; hallucinations resulting from a good trip often involve a sense of euphoria, connectedness, and love
Bad Trip: a “trip” that goes from peace and oneness to pure horror and evil; hallucinations resulting from a bad trip often involve monsters, horrifying scenes, and paranoia/anxiety
Shroom Stomach: a feeling of nausea, cramping, or other discomfort in the stomach caused by the consumption of psychedelic mushrooms
Microdose: a smaller dose of magic mushrooms (usually 0.1g to 0.5g) taken with the intent to experience a slight sense of euphoria without the full experience of “tripping”
Heroic Dose: a very large quantity of magic mushrooms (usually over 5g), that results in a powerful, intense psychedelic experience; often results in what users refer to as an “ego death”
Set & Setting: the “set” is the state of mind one brings to the trip, and its factors include, current state of mind, previous drug experiences, and mood; the “setting” refers to the surrounding events and time. These include other people present, location, time of day, and surrounding sounds (like music).
Intention(s): the act of going into a psychedelic experience with a list (mental or physical) of topics, subjects, and ideas one would like to dive deeper into (i.e. “I would like to explore my depression towards work.”)
Integration: taking time by yourself or with others to have an open dialogue around your psychedelic experience; often happens directly after a “trip” or within the days/weeks following the experience
