I used to drink orange juice with acid but I never had anything to compare it to ... i'd say go for it anyway, it can't hurt

you hear mixed results because all the Vitamin C (or OJ) does is add a placebo effect. People, myself included, seem to have had some amazing trips while injesting mushrooms with OJ (covers up the taste quite well too, even though it does not bother me) even though the vitamin c does not add to the effects. So if you have the idea in your mind that the vitamin c is going to intensify the trip, then it just may. However, I think we can just chalk up another one for the sugar pill.

I've heard as many people say Vit C can abort a trip as intensify it. It's likely bullshit either way, but this may interest someone:

Other Substances:

Ascorbic acid: at the height of the experience it didn't change the intensity but altered the quality. No decrease in intensity of perceptual changes but better concentration and less paranoia. 24 hrs after the LSD experience the subjects were less tired than the controls.


This is from "The Hallucinogens", Hoffer and Osmond, 1967. It's too vague to be taken seriously, and I know you're talking about shrooms and not LSD, but who knows? Taking Vit C certainly won't do you any harm, anyway...

As for the sugar pill, the book also mentions this:

Glucose: slight amelioration in the LSD symptoms

Might account for the belief of many people that sugary foods/drinks can bring someone down...

Do you blend your shrooms up in a blender with OJ?

Hrmmm.... My trips seem to come on faster when I take them with orange juice then with other methods.

I don't really have an opinion either way on Vitamin C so I doubt there is any kind of placebo effect going on with me.

I wonder if the quicker come on could have something to do with it being as simple as the acid in the orange juice works to break down the mushrooms and the active ingredients faster.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

from what i've read, vitamin C and sugar can help "calm" a trip. but, i have seen very little evidence either way. probably, in the end, won't hurt. vitamin c is goood for you. ;-)

Vitamin C is a great anti-oxidant, I think, so it wouldn't hurt to be taking it anyway :-)

The longer you fast before tripping, the greater the likelihood of visuals. Do you go for at least 24 hours without food?

Know what I say? I say it could only decrease the effects. Know why?

Because the juice might make you piss. When you piss before the trip is over you're going to lose lots of "magic".

The Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) or the Citric Acid (Orange juice) can increase the intensity of a trip because it these substances make your stomach acidic, and since Psilocin and Psilocybin are polar substances, the active compounds dissolve faster in your stomach, increasing the amount taken at once

I've experienced shrooms and Vitamin C twice, one time I was at a dam tripping with my girlfriend at the time and some friends, and we all had maybe like two small cartons of orange juice each after eating our shrooms in bagel sandwiches. I can definitely say that it was one of my more intense trips, the visuals were certainly orgasmic.

Another experience was with it in concentrated pill form, at a friend's house. He handed it to me and just said "Dude, take these, this shit's good for your eyes" I got freaked a little but he told me what it was, so I tried it, and I believe it set in right as I peaked, because at that point I had some pretty ridiculous visuals. If you folks are familiar with those brown nuts that have the thin hairlike needles that fall from trees (sorry, not sure what type of tree) his lawn was laden with them, and as I sat and viewed his lawn, they grew upwards, I swear to you they looked exactly like cubes.

Anyhow, yes, I believe Vitamin C can enhance the visual aspect of a trip, but I'm much more interested in the interior :smile:
