its been my experience that after i eat the shrooms - they kick in roughly 30-45 minutes later with either a vomitting or queasy feeling in my abdomen. then it hits my eyes with the effect of shadowed vision (if in dark lit areas) or mutliple borders (in well lit areas) out of the corners of my eyes. usually trails occur during either period - timeframe on that varies from trip to trip. it becomes really intense while they take over my central nervous system, affecting the way i see things - not the bad trips of the 70's - like melting walls or bleeding toilets - but it makes the world seem just a bit different from actual reality. i like to enjoy shrooms while at live shows or during a camping outting with my friends. campfires can be the utmost intense - especially if someone brought some clean copper pipe to throw into the coals of the fire - they give off (the copper pipe) a hue of blueish-green - and make for nice visuals. after a few hours of this - i am amped up - seems as though i took some cocaine or crank - but not the tension affects of those drugs are present. it usually lasts me anywhere from 8-14 hours, depending on how much i consumed - if its your FIRST time - i absolutely suggest NO MORE than a half eighth - otherwise you may overload your CNS(central nervous system) and basically "freak out" as they say. i have had some bad trips - but not to the point of jumping off buildings thinking i can fly - unlike a dose of acid - they produce roughly the same affect - but it is made with simple, actual poisons that do other harm to your system. mushrooms are totally organic, leave basically no residue behind in your system, and are a much better way to "get off" for hours longer than any other drug.
i consumed shrooms at this years Bonnaroo festival in Manchester,TN, and had an excellent time - although i did mix the original trip with MDMA, not suggested. it completely ruined my trip - and made it even harder for me to come down afterwards. MDMA made me feel like shit for another two days - MDMA is NOT a substitute for magic mushrooms.
all in all, the first-timer will enjoy - and i thouroughly suggest people try it and stay inside or in an otherwise controlled environment so as to not have an incident with the law or otherwise damaging situations.
have fun and let me know about your experiences. firstname.lastname@example.org
