Best Strain for Visuals
    #1326257 - 02/22/03 10:55 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I was reading some post replies on a thread about yield and was pleasently suprised to see many of you have experienced different "types" of trips on different strains.

I had always thought these differences were attributed to potency, rather than some difference in the alkaloid profile of the mushroom.

A friend recently grew some Jamaican hybrids that were very, very speedy. He said they made him feel like he was frying but without trailers or color visuals, and that they also made him feel euphoric and sexual. To me, his account sounds like a small dose rather than a collection of different alkaloids. But, some of you I know will disagree.

So, which strain seems to give the best visual trips? I'm talking about colors, distortions, etc. You know, LSD type effects.

In my friends experience, Cambodians.

Peace

from what i have read/heard, for the best "lsd-like" visuals, you must go with the exotic pan. cyans (aka copelandia) species. they are those little small ones. i had some of those in amsterdam and they are potent as all hell.
i have been very interested by the differences between cubensis. the first mushrooms ever had gave me VERY nice acidish visuals. other cubensis have given me more of a body high and emotional mind-fuck. i like body buzzes, but the point of mushrooms IMO is the visuals. of the cubensis, the most common response to "which is the best for visuals," has usually been the mazatapec strain. i hear great things about those. my chinchilla will have to try and grow some one day...

I had heard that about mazatapec. What about the thai cubes?

Yeah, no such thing man, I have had all kinds of different trips eating different mushrooms of the same strain and the same casing. This question is asked so many times it should be on the FAQ. After having sampled 3 different strains plus various unknowns on the street, I think it's pretty safe to say that it depends on the trip.

I read, I think in the Mushroom Cultivator but maybe not, that studies have shown that even in one single mushroom there can be great variety in alkaloid content in different parts of the stem, caps etc. So in my opinion every mushroom you eat is unique, and you will probably never be able to get consistent effects from a single strain.

At first I didn't buy into the concept of different strain = different trip. After growing and experimenting with 13 different stains of cubes I will admit first hand that each strain offers it's own unique trip. I have found Hawaiians, Creepers and Puerto Ricans are able to propel me into a very visual trip with an extreme body buzz. Everything I look at melts, bubbles, spins and morphs. Whereas the other strains I have grown only give me slight to moderate visuals and a moderate to high body buzz. Sometimes with the other stains I really have to stare at something before I actually get a visual. I think the only thing that's consistant from strain to strain is the ablilty to altar your state of thinking, philosophy and what not.

you want visuals? 5g+ of any strain (maybe not some variations of B+). I still don't see the difference in strains, i have tried b+ and creeper a few times, and they vary each time, its all about mood, setting, and i think how often you trip. The first time i tripped was off some LSA and it was pretty visual which isnt usual for LSA.

This was a great answer. Thanks for the insight :smile:

I don't think anyone should try to *DEFINE* what mushrooms *SHOULD* be used for. That's up to the consumer. Just my 2 cents.

GT's were my first...trip isnt very visual (at least for me it wasnt) some colors get brighter, really intense body high, more mental fuck than visuals though.

I find fresh shrooms usually give me better visuals and come on faster. I also find that I get more problems with nausea when eating fresh shrooms, but I think it is well worth it because it usually passes in less than half an hour.

im now cultivating some shrooms like never before :smile:
how many shrooms should I eat ? You know Im used to dried : about 5-6 big ones, makes me trip good. Another comparison is 3 g fresh, made me trip just like 5-6 big shrooms.So what about fresh ?
