We have been testing many different ways to eat shrooms: plain, tea, sandwitches, ect. So far the most effective and quickest way we have found it making a smoothie, and you dont have to care if ur parents see u drinking a smoothie. it takes about 20 min to see traces and about 45 min to see visuals, after about an hour and a half you hit your peak. We usualy put about 35 or 40 mushrooms in the blender at once with orange juice, make it a liquid, then add your fruit and lots of sugar, and you should get about 4 servings out of it. For a frist time tripper 1 serving is all that is needed, for those of you who are trying to reach another level like us we take about 30 or 40 caps each, its a lot to drink but its worth it and i suggest this for everyone instead of tea or eating them. (bannas help cut the taste of the mushrooms a lot. Aslo smoking a few bowls helps the trip and settles ur stomach.
