I hate pot. Will I like shrooms?!
    #1529033 - 05/07/03 11:43 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hey!

I started cultivation a couple months ago and I really enjoy this hobby.  At first,  I bought some syringes for my brother who just can't grow out of em at his home so I did it for himself.  I now have a couple of dried grams and didn't trip yet with em. 

I used to smoke a lot of pot a couple years ago but someday,  for an unknown reason, I started to feel so depressed every time I smoked that I simply decided to stop this.  I still smoke once in a while and always get that bad feeling.

The thing is, should I expect to get similar depression feelings with shrooms?  I'm not afraid of trying.  In fact, I tried em a few days ago but got nothing of my trip except a 5 minutes of body buzz that was interesting, nothing mental.  That was very subtile tho. I only ate about a gram, that's probly the reason.

  Anyways, I was just wondering if someone here doesn't respond well to pot but enjoys shrooms differently. 

I actually don't really care about the trips.  I just love growing shrooms,  plants and even pot as a hobby even if i'm not a dope head at all!

  hope to hear from ya soon!  :grin:

yea i dont hate pot but its very boring and i HATE being stoned... that feeling is dumb. and i just feel like a moron that is soooo lazy which is why i quit everything but shrooms.


i think if u dont care for pot u will absolkutely LOVE shrooms for its the exact opposite of weed... weed slows ur thoughts down... shrooms speeds them up and makes u feel so enlightened....

plus shrooms for my first time, cured my depression by showing me the light of how life should be looked at.


hope u like it... as i will be taking my second shroom trip (3rd actual trip tommarow)

Shrooms and pot are 2 entirely different drugs, so you'll find that it won't affect you in the same way. I enjoy pot, but tripping is more fun for me, as I get less paranoia on trips than when I am stoned, and it's more rewarding for me too.

MY EXACT THOUGHTS
Yea I don't hate pot but I don't care for it. I'll smoke it occasionally at concerts n festivals but EVERYDAY excessive use wears it out and is a waste of money.

My friends say getting high on shrooms enhances it but it just disassociates me more. I like tripping ON JUS SHROOMS and MAYBE some weed but not likely.

In no way could I possibly disagree more.

weed only slows my thoughts down if i'm smokeing crapp schwag, anything decent makes me think incredibly clear and fast, and i visualize things unspeakably well. It dosent make me lazy, I just don't give a damn about too many things. Exceptionally good nugs will even give me a feeling similar to that of going into an acid trip. Mushrooms are pretty similar except the feeling is much cleaner and amplified by about three million. Although comparing mushrooms and weed is like comparing apples and monkey toenails, to say they are opposite of one another would be, in my opinion, completley false. And eating one gram is no way to introduce yourself to mushrooms, 3 is the magic number. I say at least give it a shot, the worst that could happen is you have an incredibly horrid experience and never want to hear the word mushroom again :smirk:, but more likely you'll have a great time, no matter what, you will learn something.

Bud's ok to smoke every now and again IMO... But even the best bud money can buy around my parts doesn't compare to the experience of a mushroom trip.

i like both, but of course i like shrooms more. the reason i like pot though is that its a high you can do more often than shrooms. if i did shrooms a lot, i could see my brain getting really burned out.

dude if you're tripping out this much about it without psychedelics, then you probably don't want to take shrooms yet....... get your mind straightened out before you take them

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.

I thought I was the only one! I also get very paranoid and neurotic when stoned. I used to do it every day for the last year. this fucked me up permanently because the constant stoned paranoid state was "destroying my personality". The paranoia then leads to depression, while I think over all the paranoid thoughts that seem to "prove" how worthless my life is. Shrooms on the other hand make me totally dazzled with every tiny facet of existence. Pot fucked me up to the point where some people won't even talk to me cuz they think im crazy , but shrooms help fix all those antisocial "thought lock-ups" as I call it. Maybe I reacted abnormally to pot.. i dont care, shrooms are a better drug no matter which way you cut it.

ive never tried tripping alone however and still get a tad paranoid around people on shrooms... but i think it can be a very rewarding experience regarldless, while pot teaches you almost nothing.

If you dont like pot you might not like shrooms. I like shrooms better, but wouldnt do them alot. Try a medium sized dose (2-3g) and find out.

Just follow the trip tips on the shroomery and you'll do fine. I'd definitely also recommend you abstain from sex (even with yourself) and fast for at least a day before the trip (3 days would be even better if you have the will power!).

You guys obviously have been smoking some schwagg. When I get stoned it's like the mind racing kind of stone. I don't feel depressed? Why would I, life is fun anyways you look at it.

I will agree that mushrooms make weed look retarded in comparison, but shrooms mentally aren't really feasible more than once maybe twice a month at most.

Getting high is easier and doesn't affect you nearly as much so you can actually talk to people and feel somewhat at ease.

Different people experience different things when it comes to drugs. I certainly don't feel more at ease and find it easier to talk to people when I'm stoned. It's because I'm naturally introverted, so most of the time getting high makes that even more apparent.
Sometimes the paranoia is a good thing - I judge everything about myself, and it kind of puts me to the test. I don't get as paranoid as I used to, and when I do, it's usually because I smoked way too much and I'm listening to some music that is made to induce paranoia :wink:

Why the hell would you want to fast, especially for three days?

fasting is a great way to alter your preception and purify your body. That's why you would want to do it. People have been doing this for thousands of years, and it's for good reason.

I would imagine the only reason you would even ask that question is because you have not tried it. I suggest you give it a shot, and afterwards if you still think it's unnecesary, i invite you to come back and ridicule me. :wink:
