Being an enormous fan of the entheogenic experience, I find it difficult to explain what has been happening during recent attempts over the past two or so years...
Having acquired some fresh-picked home grown creeper strain cubensis, we decided to head to a small shin-dig in the woods called 'SmileFest'. It was the perfect environment in which to allow the experience to unfold... nature, light show, excelent jam music, and lots of close friends. Not to mention the 100's of grams of fresh creeper shrooms! Because they came from a close source, potency and strain were accurately described and estimated. This time we decided to push the envelope of the experience, and I personally consumed - at first - well in excess of 50 fresh grams. This was in fact one enormous fresh shroom! Everyone thought I was completely out of mind for doing so, but as McKenna says, "Heroic doses! One must be slain with the power of the mushroom to really appreciate its teachings." With that mantra in mind, I gobbled the entire thing in 10 minutes before unbelieving eyes.
Having tripped at least 3 times in the past with increasing success, I counted on an incredible fall into the eternal abyss... What strikes me as completely impossible was the fact that not a single marked effect was noticed after consumption. This was a bit alarming! Three hours later, all of my friends were tripping hard and having a great time, smiles ear to freakin ear. To make sure it wasn't a fluke, I then consumed its little brother - a cap and stem weighing in at 35 fresh grams!!! In total, 85-90 grams of fresh "potent" creepers were consumed with NO entheogenic effects. Having tripped in the past, my questions to the experienced psychonauts would be these:
1.) Is this even possible??? I mean, it happened, but...
2.) How much does eating regular foods before the experience effect it?
3.) If the body is tired after days of excessive partying with many other subtances, can the body simply bypass the binding of psilocin and excrete the active compound before it has any effect???
4.) This experience was quite troublesome to the psyche, as it now seems more than ever that the successful trips were just a sweet, sweet dream!! Can the brain suffer some kind of numbing due to the consumption of other things? Could I be incapable of tripping ever again???????? Ahh! Help me friends, what are the answers?!
