Why do they call it "tripping"?
    #1291511 - 02/08/03 06:25 PM (14 years, 18 days ago)

I've always wondered this.  Where did the term come from?  Why tripping? I plan on tripping for the first time with some friends after I finish my first grow.  I cant wait! :smile:

I always thought it was because one takes an inner trip to a destination that will be announced when one arrives.

hahahaha, you won't have a bad trip. Watch some TV, the commercials are hilarious as is everything else. Have fun, I know you will. Enjoy your life and live it up. Get out in nature. Stay away from civilization.

I never really knew they called it trip either. But then I popped 3 grams of amazing shrooms and for 3 hours I couldn't see anything, and everything was melting and mixing with everything else. On top of that non existant things were talking to me and saying stupid shit. As I was losing my mind I thought.. hmmm... now i know why they call this a trip.

Well besides the whole trip or journey one takes while undergoing a psychedelic experience, there could be another root to the word "tripping." The majority of those compounds that cause you to "trip" in the sense are tryptamines. LSD, Psilocybin, and DMT are all tryptamines along with lots of other componds. Maybe this has something to do with it? Perhaps the old psychedelic gurus knew this and along with the whole spiritual journey aspect, coined the term. Who knows? :grin:

sometimes i stumble around alot. Trip is the perfect word though, I would say the way you feel on shrooms is just a third definition to the word "trip". Call it what you want, its fucking awsome...

i think its called tripping because it feels like you go on a long voyage, journey, or "trip."

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

LSD is not a tryptamine, although it is very similar to one, both in effect and chemical structure.

Well its not a "high", its not a "wasted", it can BE a "fucked up" if you take to much, its defenately not "rolling" but you feel like you are some where else totally while you are standing the exact same place, its like you are on the other side of the worlds mirrored reflection... and the whole come up, peak, come down the whole 8 hour package (in my case) feels like a trip, like you took a day off to take a journey to somewhere else to experience differant things.  No word describes it better than trip. :cool:

Yeah you are right...it has a tryptamine base, that's all. I guess I shouldn't be so vague. Thanks for clarifying this... :grin:

It's cuz you're gonna take an intense...wild...unbelievable fun trip....into the Shroom World....the world where everything is magic...the world where things, ideas, and objects are turned up side down from every angle...the world beyond the dimensions of sight and sound....of time and space....you will take a shamanic voyage into the astrodynamical world of your very own psyche...with you as the pilot....you will truly take a trip into....The Twilight Zone....enjoy your trip..and do not stop and ask for directions no matter how lost you get.
