I made an account simply to say that this thread is amazing. Thank you dwpineal for this wealth of useful information.

I'm about to venture into my first trip and have taken note of everything here :smile:

The only thing I would change about this is the empty stomach situation. a big portion of bad trips happen because of low blood sugar, so if you eat let's say mushrooms on an empty stomach make sure to eat something afterwards so that you don't end up getting too uncomfortable or passing out.

Great write up.

I like the part about no $ transactions. Im usually pretty good with his and have gotten pretty used to transit machines and 7-11 type places tripping.

But one time I was at a picnic/concert/food-fest type deal on LSD and you had to exchange you $ for tickets. I hated it. I was holding up lines all over tying to figure out what this dish or that beer cost in actual $.

Good idea, I actually meant to say something to the effect of "wait 2-3 hours after eating before taking your substance" as opposed to fasting all day or something like that...
What do you all this about this edit;

10. Empty Stomach
It is recommended to have an empty stomach before taking a psychedelic. This is because if you have a full stomach, it may take the psychedelic a long time to move into your system if it is sitting on top of a lot of undigested foods. This would mean that the effects will most likely be lessened because of the slow absorption into your body. This is more true for mushrooms than it is for LSD, since LSD can be mostly dissolved in the mouth. This means to usually wait 2-3 hours after eating your last meal prior to eating the psychedelic substance.

Agreed. On some of my first trips i would be on an empty stomach and I would start to feel extremely strange when I would begin to peak and I couldn't figure out why. I would get extremely tired and feel very weak. Id also get kinda shakey too. Not fun while tripping.

My personal word of advice would be to start with a low dose your first time to get a feel for it. You don't know how potent your LSD, mushrooms, etc may be and overdoing It can lead to some scary experiences. I thought an 1/8 of shrooms was a low dose first time I did em, but it really just depends on the potency, strain, and all that. maybe start out with a gram or half eighth,  or like a half a hit of LSD if it is supposed to be very strong blotters. That's just my 2 cents.

always know your own bodychemistry, not everyone reacts the same way to drugs. This is one thing i can't stress enough to people doing drugs.

About how long before the trip would you have eaten when you were feeling shaky?

I did make a change after Legit27's comment to put in that you should not eat about 2-3 hours before dosing - I think this is probably only an issue with mushrooms, as opposed to LSD. With mushrooms, I find if I eat too soon before dosing, they don't absorb all at one time and the effects are definitely diminished to some degree. For me it seems to work better if I wait about 2-3 hours from last time I ate, so this is interesting and I would be curious to know what others think as well. Could just be me...

Tbh I'm not too sure. I noticed it the most though on a trip a week and a half ago, probably my 6th LSD trip ever. It was a low dose (half of a strong blotter ) and as I was peaking I felt super weak and a lil shakey. I have heard LSD can cause your blood sugar to drop though so I ate something which helped a lot. I think it had probably been a good 6 hours or so since I had eaten, but I'm not sure what I had that day. I also took my pulse and it was at 96 bpm, whereas when sober its around 63. Not sure but that may have been part of the issue?

Either way I learned from that and ate about 1 1/2 hours before I dosed again this last Sunday night, and noticed no weakness or shaking, it was a great trip.

Great info, thanks!

I've noticed that if I eat my dose first, then wait 10+ minutes, I can eat and not have a problem. But with LSD I don't think it is really much of an issue - I just think it is mostly with Mushrooms, as they sit on top of the food you just ate in your stomach and that increases the time it takes for everything to move into your bloodstream...with LSD, I keep it in my mouth for a long time, so it is mostly absorbed that way...I also think not eating for 2-3 hours before the trip has helped with any stomach-uneasiness (I have a sensitive stomach, but psychedelics rarely if ever bother me...).

Also I like to eat things like salad or living foods, before or during a trip, I get kinda turned off by things like pizza, and a lot of cooked foods in general when I'm tripping...

IME it's best to eat them once you get hungry/feel appetite. That's usually 4 hours after my last meal for me.

Oh that is an interesting thought - kind of like your body is now ready to begin digesting something, so it is already in gear...love it, thanks!

Moreover, it's always a good idea to drink some good juice (pop also works, but is not as good usually) once in a while. I work in a harm reduction project and that's what I usually advise to keep blood sugar levels high. Eating fruit also helps and they sometimes make for a good trip toy.

Plus good juice tastes awesome on psychs.

There are people out there that fast for 12 hours, eat mushrooms, stay in the sun all day long, don't drink anything and then they wonder why they pass out, have spasms or seizures. Know your drug, know your body, know your mind. :mushroom2:
