    #1982738 - 10/06/03 01:17 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

#1. if possibe, describe what the body high like? is it in any way comparable to cannabis? can it be compleatly overwhelming at times? any answers would be greatly apreciated.
P.S. any tips for a successfull mushroom experience?

Nothing can prepare you for mushrooms. Nobody can tell you what it feels like. Just eat 1.5g and relax.

The body high is very nice, never have I felt it overwhelming. It's the mind fuck that will get ya.

Bah.  Screw 1.5 grams.  That's not even wading into the proverbial pool.  I agree that nobody can tell you what it's like though...just make sure you're in a good mind set.  Remember, you're not dead and you will eventually come down. :grin:

The body feeling is pretty unique. I find when it comes on I like to walk or move in certain ways - it helps make it not turn into naseau.
Tips? Read beforehand. Read a lot of trip reports to see what it might be like. You can't really prepare for it by reading, but you will at least have thought about the weirdness you are about to encounter. From my experience and that of people I know, it seems to help make it go smoothly.
And give yourself the hours to deal with it. Don't try to rush back to normal places and normal mindset too soon.

Oh, don't watch tv. It's a waste, just like in real life. Explore the real show all around you.

Not really. Thats like asking what does chocolate taste like. There are so many different ways to answer the question and none of them good.

> is it in any way comparable to cannabis?

Not for me. Both are good?

> can it be compleatly overwhelming at times?

Yes, though it isn't really bad. Imagine that somebody reached inside your head and turned up the volume on all your senses. This usually only happens to me during the onset and goes away before the peak. If it gets too bad, go in a dark/quiet room and rest for a few minutes and it will pass.

> any tips for a successfull mushroom experience?

As always, set and setting.

The 1.5 gram dose is right on for a first time user. If you don't feel enough effects, eat more after an hour. I'm sure you've read stuff about setting. Some place very green and secluded with water/waterfalls would be perfect. Some good, relaxing music is nice.

Just be careful when you're somewhere with cliffs or steep drop-offs, as mushrooms can affect your coordination.

Be safe and have fun!

im not too sure about that...in my experiences, a dark quiet room can be one hell of a mind fuck (depending on the dose) the only time i go into a dark and quiet room while tripping is if i want to go off the deep end (which is usually every time i trip) sometimes, and again, depending on the dose, i can only stand it for a few minutes before i totally lose it. maybe its just me, but being alone, in the dark, with silence screaming in your ears as the effects of mushrooms play with your brain is not necessarily my idea of a way to get away from that overwhelmed feeling. and you would be surprised how lowd silence can be  :grin: for me, the only time i get overwhelmed is when i trip indoors, and the more people around intensifies this. a stroll outside to talk with the trees and check out the sunset (if it is there) relaxes me ten-fold.

i say go with 1.5 to 3 grams for a first trip, leaning more heavily to the 3 gram. 1.5 grams is just a barley a taste. my first experience was 7 grams :shocked:.....oops, mistake on my part....but it was an experience i will never forget

for first time trippers i think its always a good idea to have experienced trippers with you, and preferably one that is sober....just in case. but in my experiences when breaking psycadelic cherries, i have never had anyone come out of it saying they didnt have the time of their life, even the ones that got a lil scared. go for it dude, and make sure you make us a trip report so we can relive our first times through yours.... :grin:

Yeah, definately have a sober person around that has used shrooms before. That helps a lot.

But make sure you arent tripping alone or youll miss a lot.

I agree with wrestler az. A dark silent room is intense.

Everybody told me to take 1.5 grams my first time. I tried shrooms three times before I fealt anything.

When I finally did trip on 1.5 grams, it was my first and only lvl 5 trip.

I'd recomend 2.5g. You want to feel something don't you?

I saw God (figuratively). I knew how the universe worked. I understood everything. Me and Buddah were buddies for 6 hours.

If you research lvl 5 trips, you'll see they have nothing to do with the quantity you injest.

Read the Psychadellic Experience by Tim Leary for some real depth on the lvl 5 trip.

Fuck levels...I've tripped many times and I find that trips transcend any concept of "levels" and if you're looking at that way, then I think you're missing the point of tripping. At least what I think the "point" is, anyway ; ).

Calm down man, levels are only to compare the intensity of your trip to others. It's not like they mean everything and nothing.

It all depends...  some people trip for a good time... some people trip for an escape... some people trip for self exploration... some people trip for spiritual reasons...

There are certain "levels" of tripping.  The lines between these levels are a bit blurry, but there are distinct things that happen as the dosage goes up which can be categorized.  I like to know before hand what kind of voyage I am in for.  I don't want to be surprised and end up in hyperspace when I just wanted a little something to kick back and listen to floyd with.

I also do not agree with the definition of "a level 5 trip"... every trip report I have read that is a level 5 trip I would have called a level 4.  To me, the level 5 trip can occur at any dosage and is more of a mind set than an effect of a drug.

Perhaps we are seeing the same thing from too different angles.  :smile:

Yeah -- I notice that a lot of level 5s are really 4s. I think I've reached l5 -- time got utterly -fucked-, I was incapable of even remembering what it was like to not be the way I was at the time, and a few times I got lost in my head; I thought I was doing things, and then I'd come back to myself when I moved or something, and realise -- after several minutes of trying to think -- that I hadn't actually done anything.
