mushrooms and weight
    #1197431 - 01/07/03 11:23 AM (14 years, 17 days ago)

hey, i looked everywhere for this question before i posted it, couldnt find it, so here goes-

should you change the amount of mushrooms you eat by how much you weigh? if there are two people going on a first trip, and they are different in weight, should they eat different amounts, or does it not make a difference? thank you for helping me!!

ive found that weight has very little impact on how hard u trip off a certain ammount....

i once tripped with a mate.....

i weigh: 12stone
mate : 18stone

i ate 4gram and he ate 4.3gram......he was tripping far longer than i was, he even went on a bad episode when i had almost completely come down (about 4 1/2 hours after ingestion)

Yes I don't believe that should be much of a difference - if you're concerned, possibly give the larger person 2.-.3 more, but it shouldn't really change too much with weight.

Isn't the perfect way to dose shrooms by your own brain weight? but then again nobody can really be sure how much there brain weighs or whats a good amount of shrooms for that size of brain. Also i'm sure the way your stomache and everything in your body that interacts with the shrooms on there way to the brain effect the amount you trip so basically just split the shrooms and have a good time or figure out what went wrong later.

If somebody tried to get me to let them have more shrooms (my shrooms) then me saying they weigh more I'd slap him good!

Yes weight does make a difference. For the first several trips you should try and establish a rough baseline sensitivity. So if you want both of you can take low doses the first time and see how sensitive you are. Are you or your friend unusually sensitive to other drugs? This can be used as a indicator in some cases. I have a friend who, for instance, is very sensitive to weed and acid. Looking at his tolerances for other drugs he only ingested 1.3 g of dried P. cubensis and had a level 3-4.
Think of it this way... if you have two people with similar tolerances and one outmasses the other by a factor of two then, to account for the mass difference, you should simply double the dose of the larger person.
A friend of mine and i have very similar tolerances, but he outweighs me by almost exactly two to one. When we started him off at doses that were only 1.25 times that of what I take he barely got a tingle. Now that he is ingesting a little more than double it appears (from consulting about our experiences) that he reaches about the same level at twice the dose.
It isn't just about brain weight, as the active compounds are distributed throughout your body via the blood stream and consequently need to reach similar saturation levels for people with similar tolerances.
have fun and stay safe

unfortunately there can't be many studies on illegal substances.

I recommend taking two grams each and seeing how that goes.

Then if that was weak for one of you or both, either one of you or both take more next time, and so on..
