These shrooms don't make me trip (part II)
    #1751578 - 07/26/03 10:37 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I've posted about this in the past and also have mentioned it in 'the pub' - (sorry about posting it to multiple boards, but i really want to get to the bottom of this issue).

The bottom line is neither me nor my wife are tripping on the shrooms I'm growing. I ate 6 grams last night, she ate 4 and we just didn't get anywhere. We've got a friend that we've fed them to as well- he actually says he trips, but i'm now figuring he's just a lightweight. What could the problem be? Here's a short list of my ideas. I'd very much appreciate someone telling me what they think the problem could be.

1) crap spores - yes the shrooms grow, but they just don't have any 'pop'. For the record, the spores were golden teachers - the print was ~ 1 year old.

2) poor method of preservation. I have no dessicant to get things 'cracker dry' (i.e Ca Cl2). I blow a fan over 'em for a week or so - maybe two then put them in the freezer. Maybe my 6 grams is only 4 grams of 'cracker dry', but shit - it's a big pile of shrooms and I know I've tripped previously from far less.

3) I (we) are immune to shrooms. I don't really believe this. I've only done shrooms 15-20 times ever. Until recently, l I've always tripped from much smaller doses. Recently I've been 'trying' to trip maybe once every 1-2 months and have been steadlily increasing the dose trying to get there.

I'd appreciate any advice from the sages out there.

peace -

J

what was the condition of the mushrooms once dried? You put them in the freezer? that's not good since they weren't cracker dry. If they were horribly bruised and/or blackened then this can significantly alter the potency and render them magicless.

what did you eat with them? Avoid dairy products since they coat your stomach. Taking any medication? Other than that I can't think of anything off the top of my head that would cause your situation.

putting them in the freezer with any moisture in them could be bad.. as the water particles re-allign themselves when frozen, and expand, they create tiny air pockets which fill with oxegen and nutralize the magic..

not bruised - they were a bit black from having dropped the spores.

nothing. I dropped them into an empty stomach.

point well taken. I'm in the process of trying to get some damp-rid sent to this god-forsaken shithole of a 3rd world country that i live in.

anybody know a supplier that will send damp rid to SE Asia? - I've had no luck searching for one. As an alternative, I'll gladly send a kind soul $$ up front (+ trouble cost) if they promise to send me some by mail.

I dont think this is the best way to store them, but all of mine that I have ever grown have just been placed on a paper towel.. when sufficiently dry, I put them in a plastic bag with the top open, and there they stay untill consumption. Havnt had any problems yet, but what is the reason they must be frozen? As far as I have heard they keep potency dry just as well. As long as decay/contamination is not an issue, I dont see the reason to get them completely "cracker" dry. I'm kind of new at this, but just letting ya know I havnt had any problems yet..

the spores came from a close friend who is very experienced in growing. They were from shrooms that had us all tripping hard the last time we were together (last year).

I'm not sure what you mean by that comment. If you're implying that the shrooms I've grown aren't cubies then you are mistaken. If you're just making a joke, it's not very funny.

If those are the shrooms you ate, something went wrong, because they look like p cubes.

Try taking an MAOI with your next dose. Syrian Rue is cheap (5$ for an ounce, I think, from bouncingbearbotanicals.com) and an ounce is alot o fnice doses. Perhaps, tho long odds, your wife and you both have higher than average MAOI levels in your body, and that destroys the psilocybian. have you tried other hallucinogenic drugs, which ones, and towhat effect

yes, I've used plenty of other hallucinogenic drugs, including LSD (my favorite), mescaline, MDMA, and ketamine (i guess the latter two may not be considered hallucinogenic by everyone) and I've always had great experiences with all of the above. Until recently (like since I've been growing my own), I've always been able to trip on cubies. I also tripped as hard as I've ever tripped on Coplandias in Amsterdam.

based in the other responses I've gotten, I'm nearly convinced that what's going wrong is how I dry them and store them. I'm eating 'em fresh next time around.

thanks to all who responded so far - you guys are great.

If u wish CaCl2 try a agriculture suppy store , it is used for wieght in wheels of tractors , also as a fast curing agent in concrete . Hope this helps

no worries.    now that i know it's a joke i guess it is kinda funny.  :smile:  The good part is that you gave me an excuse to post my pic which at least will convince any skeptics out there that indeed i am eating the right shrooms.

they're golden teachers. you're right, tho - they are small compared to the cubies we used to find in the cow pastures where i grew up. I figure as long as you're dealing with weight, that size - at least in the case of shrooms - really doesn't matter. maybe that's not the case....
