I'm gonna be test-subject in psilocybin-research!
    #1197732 - 01/07/03 01:16 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Cheers!
Well, I'll participate in a psilocybin-test of some sort. It is being conducted by a university in Switzerland. Eventhough Switzerland got all tuff about mushroom-laws, for research they've got the juice. This particular juice being pills containing a certain amount of mg psilocybin. The test is a three day thing, one day every two weeks. The pills will be consumed at 10am. One time I'll get a placebo, which I hope I'll recognize as such, another time a medium-weak dosage and another time a medium-strong one. Obviously I'll have no clue what I'm gonna be in for when. Which is kinda weird. I'll try to manage. I'll get you guys the exact dosages, it'll probably be of interest.

I went to the place where I'm gonna be tripping the other day to talk to these people and get everything explained to me. They all seem really nice and they also seem to know what they are doing. It's not people walking around in coats watching every step I make and taking notes, rather laid-back friendly people that all did the experiment themselves. I'll mainly be in a room with a bed, a cd-player and such. However I may go outside if I feel like it.

The experiment itself consists of three tests taking about 10 minutes each.
1. I get some headphones and a sound will be played. I'll have to estimate the length of it.
2. Some memory test: various squares over a computer screen, flashing in a certain order and I have to remember the order.
3. I put on some weird lcd-screen goggles, which flash in a frequency synchronized to the computer screen. There'll be horizontal and vertical lines constantly changing, I'll have to say when I see which.

I get paid for it as well. I know this sounds like a dream come true to some of you. I too knew I just had to do it. Cause even if things shouldn't go as planned, it'll make for a damn fine story. However, some nervousness remains. It's been a while since I tripped last and it'll be quite a surreal setting. I feel that these people know how to help me stay calm in case it gets weird and if all else fails, they do have valium handy which supposedly really helps to cope.

I'm really stoked though that I get the chance to sample pure psilocybin, something you won't find on the street. It's gonna be interesting to compare effects. They told me that people usually reported more colorful trips on pure psilocybin as opposed to shrooms.

I'll probably find out soon enough. In 2 days that is.
So, people of the shroomery, whip out those comments, tips and the like. As I said, I'm a little nervous about it, so I'd really appreciate some advice/support. Eh.

ykk

Where do you apply for stuff like that? And why did they pick you?

:shocked:  :smile:  :laugh:

cool! Sure would like to taste some of that synth psilocybin.

When you were selected were they aware you used mushies recreationally?

Please post your trip reports here!

Good Luck!

Wow that's really interesting, and it sounds like a lot of fun.  I'm sure you'll be able to distinguish between the placebo and the real thing.  An hallucinogenic experience isn't exactly mild :wink:

As far as tips, just enjoy yourself.  Sounds like you're set.  I myself usually keep some diazepam (valium) on hand in the event that my trips go awry, but I haven't needed 'em yet :cool:

Do you get to bring your own CDs, or do they supply the music?

I like the step 4. where a busty nurse rides you blindfolded and you have to tell if she is blonde, redhead, or brunette.

Please do post your reports in here! Tripping in a lab setting should make for a very interesting story.

I'd watch those scientists through your bullet-proof plexi glass cage or just stare at the one way mirror! Be sure they're not up to anything sneaky. Or will they be letting you roam around

I envy you, that would be the best thing ever; but be sure, like others mentioned, to scrutinize those papers! One more thing - Claw at your face and throw yourself around the room every so often just to keep them on their toes and hold they're attention. I certinly wouldnt want to be a boring subject.  :laugh: :wink: :tongue:

cheers!
sorry for taking my time to reply. anywho, i'll answer the questions in this here post and will do the trip-report (oh, and what a trip it was) in my next, as i'm quite stoned in that time they call now.$

Young but cool:
i heard about the experiment thru a lady-friend at university. and i think she saw it posted among other jobs on some blackboard. i called up the number, we talked about this and that, my drug-experiences etc. and he sent me the application, along with quite a bit of surveys about, uh, myself. self-evaluation sorta. basically they wanted to test if i'm psychologically stable enough.
then i went there to get a checkup at the doc to see if my body would go into collapse-mode on drugs. and then a personal talk with the people there and was able to check the experiments and everything. and before i knew it i found myself with a very special date on january 9.

esin:
>When you were selected were they aware you used mushies >recreationally?

you bet. along with everything else i ever consumed. eh.

geokills:
>Do you get to bring your own CDs, or do they supply the music?

i got to bring my own. brought some tibetan music, some reggae, forest for the trees, flaming lips...good stuff.

Learyfan:
>I really need to find out how you got picked for this.

eh.

phreakyzen:
>Are you sure psilocybin is all that is in these pills? I am not >trying scare you but I would read everything you sign.

yep, i'm sure. i read it all. and let me tell you, "just" psilocybin was plenty.

roygbiv:
>goddam swiss...

eh, nothing to be envious about. they used to sell shrooms in stores, now they changed the law. it's probably even tougher than where you're at. even spores are illegal right now. now weed, that's another story :grin:

Swami:

eh, my nurse wasn't a nurse really, more like a friendly trip-guide. she was from australia and real pleasant to be around. oh, and she was brunette.

TeKHeAD009:
>I'd watch those scientists through your bullet-proof plexi glass >cage or just stare at the one way mirror! Be sure they're not up >to anything sneaky. Or will they be letting you roam around

eh, wasn't anything like that. really laid back. cool people. and roaming around.

coming up: the trip-report.

ykk

well, i'm a little drunk now. it's about 3.40am and i'm gonna visit dreamland. when i get up tomorrow i'll smoke me a soothing blend and turn in my report.
yeah.

What was the point of the research, besides getting some lucky guy tripping?
