I picked up 3.5 g of Cubensis (on second though, should have gotten more while I could, but anyway...) I am wondering about how to dose for 2 people. Yes, I've read the FAQ here (actually the FAQ section on dosing doesn't seem to directly address P. Cubensis, unless Stropharia cubensis=P. Cubensis) and erowid, google, etc., and I've shroomed several times myself. I am writing because I feel there is conflicting information from several sources and I'd like some personal experiences to back up the information I have (and I also read through the experiences on Erowid, which pretty much are all at the high end of dosing).It's also been a while since I shroomed.
The general internet consensus seems to be that 3.5 g of P. Cubensis would be a standard heavy trip and about 1 g would be threshhold for feeling some definite effects, and a beginner might be advised try 2g or so.
I am looking at my 3.5g now, haven't shroomed in a long time, but it looks like a hell of a lot to me. I can't imagine eating this whole thing. I have achieved some pretty trippy trips with about half this, if I am imagining correctly.
I am going to trip with someone else who has not done it before, which is one reason why it is important to get the dose right.
One website says this:
>(1) Start with a low dose. > Never take more than 1 gram of dry magic mushrooms. Wait for 90 minutes. If >you feel OK and want to intensify the experience you could take some more.
They are talking about cubensis. This seems more like what would mesh with my experiences. Other sites have describe 1 g as the minimum necessary to notice any effect! Conflicting advice...
My two questions: for a reasonably deep trip that does not cause one to really lose one's grip on reality, but rather imbues the whole universe with a sense of wonder and awe, without making one lose touch further (hopefully this is a good description of a trip level), what do you think a typical dose would be?
I also like the advice about trying 1g and re-dosing in 90 minutes. (I prefer the idea of 1 hour though, 90 is a little long)... what do you think of this? I wonder if perhaps you would be somewhat tolerant to the effects of the re-dose, given that tolerance develops so quickly, and perhaps this would wind up wasting some of my precious 3.5 g.
If the above really is good advice, we can both do 1 g, and have 1.5g of booster shrooms left over to re-dose at 1 hour.
I am mainly worried about tolerance effects. They develop so quickly to psychedelics, that I wonder if re-dosing even at 1 hour might lead to less bang for your shroom than taking the total amount at T0.
Also if anyone has advice about how to get more bang for your shroom, I'd appreciate it. Obviously, combining with N2O or herb can help, but at the risk of completely derailing the experience, possibly into something negative. Would making tea, eating in a special way, on an empty stomach, etc... help get more bang for the shroom?
