Do magic mushrooms show up in drug tests?

Answer

Magic mushrooms show up in a urine test for two to five days and in a saliva test for one to five days after consumption, according to About.com. Psilocybin, the naturally occurring psychedelic compound found in magic mushrooms, is also detectable in a hair follicle test for up to 90 days.

The amount of time psilocybin shows up on a drug test varies considerably based on a person's metabolism, age, body mass, hydration level, physical activity, health condition and other factors, according to About.com. Because of all these factors, it is impossible to determine an exact length of time that psilocybin might show up in a drug test for any individual person.

Used for thousands of years by humans, magic mushrooms produce a hallucinogenic effect that typically lasts for two to five hours, according to Wikipedia. Over 100 species of magic mushrooms throughout the world contain psilocybin. Of those varieties, the majority grow in Mexico with over 50 species identified. However, there are also species that grow in the United States, Canada, Asia, Africa and Australia. While both the caps and stems are typically consumed, the caps consistently contain more of the psilocybin that creates the mind-altering effect on the body.
