Frequency of taking shrooms
    #1780121 - 08/05/03 01:46 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hey guys, GREAT FORUM! I'm glad I've found such a valuable resource where I can read up on tripping.

I have some questions about how often to trip. How often is too often when taking shrooms? I've heard that 3-4 days should be left in between trips in order to not build up a tolerance - this true? I've also read to only trip 6 times a year (which would suck!). Any truth to these?

Thanks all

Many people resolve to only trip once a month. It makes it more special that way, or so I hear.

You should leave a week in between trips, unless you have lots of mushrooms, and don't mind having to take (normally) double the first trip's amount to get good effects. As for the six times in a year thing, I've never heard of it, and see no reason for it to be true.

I always thought that all that liver damage talk was a myth, like LSD in the spine.

Shrooms have no effect whatsoever on your liver

And 6 times a year sounds about right.
This might not seem like much at first but once you have gotten over the extreme novelty of tripping then you will probably cut right back.

see, you should leave a week inbetween to let the tolerance go down. There is no permament tolerance on shrooms, lsd or dmt for that matter.(tryptamines) they build up a heavy, short lived tolerance that last no longer than a week. people say six times a year because they couldn't imagine having shrooms multiple times a month.

personally, when I never greq shrooms, it was HARD to find them anywhere close to where I live, so even 4 months or half a year in between trips wasn't unheard of. But when you can get them really cheap, or have your own supply, you'll be wanting to trip a lot more often.

Poisnous mushrooms might harm you but psilocybin comes around 400 places lower than aspirin in the physical toxicity list. That's pretty harmless.

I do have just about an unlimited supply of shrooms but they dont harm me and i ben doing them for about two years. I have a cow pasture thats full of cube,s and blue meanies. i trip at least every week of more. Sometimes i trip for three to five days with my friends sometimes.There is one odd effect-now every time i do them i feel like im turning into a beast and i could just run through the woods.LOL

I say that you have to find your own comfort level for how much and and how hard you want to trip. Everyone feels different about how often one should take shrooms, but it's all really about how much YOU can handle. Maybe once in a lifetime is enough for you, or maybe 2 times a weeks is something you think you can handle. You might become mentally and physically fatigued if you do shrooms in excess, then again, you might be able to handle it just fine. A co-worker of mine has been tripping on shrooms 1 to 2 times a week for the past year. I thought he would have burnt himself out 10 months ago, but he just keeps on going.

I find with myself, when shrooms are abundant, I'll trip when ever I find some free time... which turns out to be once every 2 to 3 weeks. When no shrooms are to be found, I don't feel the need to do them at all.

Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!

Sure, you CAN trip every few days, but nobody's going to want to hang out with you anymore because you'll turn into a fuckin weirdo unless you are living a lifestyle where that type of behavior is "acceptable" (creative arts, anyone?).

Since I am not making a living with music or any other type of creative outlet, I can't really trip very often because it puts my mind in such a creative, boundary-dissolving state, which doesn't work well when you're a corporate slave :wink: ("Get back to work!") - this is why I only trip several times a year


--------------------
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.

yeah but a mushroom isnt composed entirely of psilo(cyb)in. my friend tripped on mushrooms pretty frequently for a couple of weeks, and he developed spots in his eyes, which is a sign of liver damage.

I think it's fair to say the longer you wait, the better it is. At least that's been my experience.

So what do you think is in mushrooms that destroys your liver if it isn't the active alkaloids?

Self-diagnosis isn't really worth a candle. Your friend self-diagnosing "liver damage" and then the cause of it isn't likely to be very accurate.

I'm pretty positive Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms cause no harm to the liver.
