Mushroom Potency
    #1516992 - 05/03/03 06:17 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I have always wondered about this.
I am not a Fat guy, but i have a little cushion to me. I am 6'1" and 220. Almost every time i have eaten mushrooms, i have eaten aprox. 4 grams or more. I have eaten mushrooms probably about 4 times maybe 5. 3 of those times at least have been 5 gram trips.
Now, when i read trip reports, i read how people are only eating 2-3 grams of mushrooms and they have these fantastic trips where they seem to meet strange beings and they are catapulted out into outer space or whatever. My question is where are they getting these extremely potent mushrooms that they only need to eat 2-3 grams of to get these amazing trips? Maybe some people exaggerate a little bit too much? I dont mean to sound like i think these people are complete liars but i want to know if i am doing something wrong.
Dont get me wrong either, when ive tripped i have been truly messed up but i havent conversed with interstellar beings or elves from the forest. the craziest thing ive seen is that my wall and my carpet floor have turned green and purple.

Thanks for your time : )

I find it interesting that a level three trip to one person could also be a level 5 trip to another.

Ive read a few trip reports and a lot seam to be exagerated to some extent, i dunno for sure tho.

On the other hand 5 grams of cubes generally would get me very high probably lvl4ish(im not big on the level things tho). Anything over 5 grams is just to intense for me to have a positive expierence from.

One thing to think about tho if you where comsuming commercial shrooms, a lot of times these mushrooms sit around fresh before they get dried/and or got dried with heat or incorrectly. Bad drying technique can reduce potency. Some commercial cubes ive got have been quite low on the potency compared to home grown ones. Only one time (phish show) i got HQ commercial shrooms, and im pretty sure they where also home grown by someone, not feild picked in mass qty.

This is the only time I really feel alive.

Hmm.. Yeah.. just what i was thinking.. maybe somebodies level 3 is a level 5. But im not big on the level thing either. I dont think ive ever had field picked mushrooms. I live in a state that's a desert, so there isnt much to choose from. I dont know.. im a little lost as to how to get smashed in only 3 grams. Maybe i'll start growing my own when i move out this summer.

I'm sure there's a lot of litttle white lying going on in trip reports, but the trip is a combination of you and the mushroom so there could be a lot of variation. I've never found much correlation between the intensity of the trip and the dosage level tho. It's not like beer. Once you're over 3-4 grams it's pretty much the same as 15 grams. The brain only has so many receptors. High dose trips tend to last longer but I've had just as intense experiences on 3 grams as 15.

Don't worry, B. Caapi
