Best visuals strains. (Official FAQ thread)
    #1936447 - 09/20/03 11:19 PM (11 years, 13 days ago)

I suffer from bad trip syndrom. I go into introspective nightmares frequently, going over the lessons of past trips, remembering all sorts of bad things.

this question has been asked alot, i know. Everyone is different, i know. they all have psilocybin, i know.

but IYHO, is there a specific strain that is less "thinky" and more "visual"


--------------------

We have to answer our own prayers

Heh, They are ALL "thinky".

I recomend some Pans for you, if you are up for a challenge?

p.s. Good to see you around!!

I might be able to give some advice which could be helpful...

On my last trip, I found that focusing your attention on something 'external' kept the internal psycho-analyzation and mind-fuck away, or to a minimum.  Keeping your hands busy playing with something, etc. 

We (my boyfriend and I) wanted a more visual and external trip, so to prevent the internal plunge we purchased several trip toys which we explored and played with during our trip.  There was practically no mind-fuck at all since we made a point to focus on the 'external'. 

Visual's were out the roof though.  This could work for you, if you make a point to keep everything external and not get caught up in any sneaky thoughts. 

We played with glow-sticks, water, putty, roses, apples...and were listening to a lively soundtrack (shpongle) so it worked out quite nicely.  We were rewarded with many intense visuals out of this world, and it felt nice to be in complete control of our trip.  Maybe worth giving a try? 

Hope that helps a little :smile:

Psilocybin is psilocybin as you say but perhaps Philosophers stones (psilocybe mexicana type) could be what you're looking for.

I used to get wrapped up in scary or overwhelming thoughts, but on my last mushroom trip I learned how to overcome it very easily. We were all just sitting around and 2 of the people were new to this, and we were just awaiting the effects. It was starting to hit me really hard in the bad way though. I relized I was starting to head in the wrong or "bad trip" direction. So I just said screw that and got up and started dancing along with the music! (we were listening to the golden dawn- "power plant" cd. awesome late 60's psych) And when I started dancing I was in the clear!!! My mind was free of those earlier thoughts and it cleared the way for one of the best trips I've ever had! Dancing just took my mind off things and made me force myself to have a good time! So next time just start dancing!

A good way to keep cool is smoke herb, and if you don't do that drink some beers you probably won't feel them. Take control in your mind, fuck a bad trip! :wink:

I always drink beer with mushrooms - never had a problem there. The best way to get over the initial anxiety of a large trip is a few beers at the start so that your completely relaxed.
Ive always found the pans to be a milder experience - less anxiety, but i wont go into my tryptophan theories today...

i think about what other people say and watch their behavior. my surroundings, etc..., a lot of times im left speechless because im processing so much.

mushies open up a new protol for communication and understanding for me. When two people are at interacting on mushies, there is synergy.

call me crazy, I sense peoples energy sometimes when I dont even know I'm around them. This is just an example of one of my spiritual gifts which I like to call them. Something clicks in my mind, i get a thought, a recollection of a sort and sure enough...they appear. Its not strong, its not always consistent but maybe it is. Mushies have expanded my mind more than I can just mention in a thread...enuf rambling. maybe ill continute this in another thread?

The best solution for that is the Shrooms it self , the Ganoderma lucidium , aka Reishi/ling zhi, is excelent for that, I am chinese medicine practitioner( acupunture, fitotherapy stuff), the ling zhi helps to restore and liver chi, that is dramatically depleted by mind altering drugs, to ensure a good trip nothing is better then a lot ling zhi teas, the ling zhi is the immotality mushrooms  it do not have any side effects, grow some and start to drink daily, and you will only have good trips, and good mud all day :smile:

  ^^^ sounds interesting dude, can you tell us more?

Does it work for depression also?  Is it expensive? Does the tea taste nasty?

Its not as simple as changing the strain. And you cant have specificaly taylored trip simply by taking this strain and a little bit of that strain. Like: "yeah, Ill have 1 Thilland Lipa for some floaty feeling, with a few Equadorians for visuals, and just a tad of B+ for some  "thinky"  feelings"...LOL, I WISH!   :shake:
  Think about Dumbo the Elephant from the Diseny movie. They said: "heres a magical feather, it will make you fly" In actuality it was just an ordinary feather, and gave Dumbo the confidence he needed, it wasnt magical at all.
The same happens with muchrooms. Someone can say: "here, these will make you more "thinky" and happy, no bad trip." ...and you may just have a good trip because it's basicaly all in your head. It has NOTHING to do with the type you ingest!

Hope this helps :wink:

I have never had beer with shrooms, but whenever I drink vodka or any other type of hard alcohol while I am coming down off of a good shroom trip it will bring my peak back up and sometimes I can stretch my trips up to 11 hours by doing this. Although, once I went crazy and decided to get alcohol poisoning while shrooming and that truly did suck ass, but besides that I think alcohol + shrooms + weed is a very good combo.

Btw, P. cyanes are a good visual strain for me, but some trips are different than others and I sometimes get more "thinky" on them than visual.

Maybe it's better to concentrate on why you're feeling sad and depressed instead of trying to ignore the feelings. Just a thought.

No thanks. I don't want to die anymore with shrooms + weed, haha. But I know it has to do with my absolute zero tolerance to weed.

Drinking a bit while waiting for the trip is always good for me tho..

I have to disagree. I've heard this arguement many times.

The only strains I've tried are PF and B+. I never experienced intense visuals with PF. That strain makes me very contemplative and introspective, which I prefer.

B+ gives me awesome visuals.

A lot of good ideas. To directly answer your question I would say Equadors.
But that is a rather shallow answer. Similarly to what EllemyshShade said
I also think you should stay active; however instead of playing with toys
take the time to plan out a trip in the most amazing and safe environment
you can imagine. If you are wandering through places in nature that demand
your attention due to their unmatched beauty, you might leave your other
problems at the door. However, on the flip side, like Smoker For Peace said
you have to face what is presented by the mushrooms. That is far more
beneficial and amazing than any visual you will ever see. But do what ever
it is you have to do.
