This was my very first time tripping and to be honest it was quite a bit less than I had thought it would be.
I had 4 grams of shrooms (psilocybe cubensis or golden teachers) There were stalks as well as caps in the measure.
The way I prepared them:
First I boiled about 3 cups of water with ginger for about 10 minutes, then let it cool quite a bit, adding more cool water. I then crushed the shrooms and added them to the water.
I then ate/chewed/drank the water til I had consumed it all. It took about 30-45 minutes for the effects to kick in and from what I believe this should have gotten me quite the trip. But It was not. The trip I went on was only about 2.5 hours long.
I mostly got wavy and fuzzy visuals, IT was as if I was looking through a thin layer of water out at the world. When in darkness I saw some minor fractal like visuals and watched the line of light around a door vibrate for about 7-15 minutes. There was no real distortion that I noticed, things did seem more vibrant, colors and tastes especially. Music also sounded a bit more vibrant than usual.
Make no mistake. It was awesome, and I am totally going to be doing this again. But the effect was much less than what I was expecting. I am probably quite resilient to them.
It was fun and definitely an interesting first foray into the world of recreational drugs.
Next time I will probably be taking 6-7 grams and I will see if that gives me more of an experience.
