What are the differences between the different methods of ingestion?
Well, any number of ways. The objective is to get active chemicals in the mushrooms working, (obviously). As most people know, to the majority of shroom eaters, psychedelic mushrooms taste pretty bad (or worse), especially when they're dried. They also have a texture that causes them to get stuck in your teeth making your mouth become uncomfortable. And the aftertaste tends to linger. Therefore, you probably want to avoid just chewing and swallowing (although some trippers enjoy doing it that way).
Here are some suggestions to mask or eliminate the flavor of mushrooms:
Tea is a classic:
- Cervantes' favorite way to injest shrooms.
Or, you can put the shrooms in a blender with almost any kind of juice or iced tea. The only detriment to that method is that the blender will cause the drink to foam up. If there's anything you don't need, it's excess gas, as mushrooms cause enough gastric distress on their own. If you use this method, let the mixture rest in your glass for a few minutes and scoop off the foam before gulping the drink down.
A better way to drink your dose is to grind
your cracker-dry shrooms in a coffee grinder and stir (or use a small
bottle and shake) them into your choice of juice.
You don't need a lot of liquid. Even for a large dose, 6-8 ounces of liquid is more than enough.
The only juice you should avoid using is carrot juice. For some reason, it's been found to negate the effects of psilocin upon ingestion. This is not to say that once you are tripping, carrot juice will bring you down, it probably won't, but it will prevent you from coming up.
Most alternative recipes require the coffee grinder method of powdering your shrooms. Once the shrooms are pulverised into the consistancy of talcum powder, you can put them in or on practically anything from a peanut butter sandwich to cocktail sauce for your shrimp, to melted chocolate, which when hardened becomes "shroom chocolates".
Keep in mind that the powder-in-liquid method provides for a very fast reaction!!
You can be getting CEVs (closed-eye visuals) in as little as 6-8 minutes and the effects increase to near peak levels within 30 minutes of ingestion using this method.
Powdered shrooms can be easily put into gel-caps.
