studying while on mush?

Since mushrooms are a brain-booster, would they help you study for exams?

man, of all the things I like to do while tripping, I don't think studying would be very on the top of my list

:smile:

i can't confirm this, but I'd suggest no,
mind you i haven't attempted to study while under the influence, but with that said i think if it were to have any positive effect it would only be under small dosages i.e. <1g (possibly way less). and i think most people would be far to preoccupied anyway.

I actually had this exact thought yesterday. I have never tried really sitting down to read while partaking of mushrooms, though I have tried it with LSD. This proved very tough as I couldn't concentrate long enough to make sense of what I was reading, let alone most of the time while trying to read was spent trying to focus long enough to read the words on the page. This was only on a small dose as well, probably around 150 micro grams.

Anyway, with shrooms I find that I retain a lot of what I hear from people while tripping. Another thing I have noticed is that "if" I can control my trip and focus on one particular subject long enough it will become the main focus of my trip and I may or may not learn quite a bit about whatever it is I am pondering.

I could not say though if tripping would enhance my say.. calculus studying sessions, as I think it would usually end in me walking out of the room or staring off into space.

I read a whole book last trip i had and i remmeber most of it, but "brian booster"???? shroomz???? what are you thiking?

I can tell you for sure that since i started shrooming ive become dumber, ignorantly blissful, but dumber, my words take longer to come out, stuff people say comes to me slower therefore i react slower, i stutter sometimes now, and i generally feel slow sometimes.

Im 100% sure this is because of shroomz.
I dont mind, the question is do you?
Im quite a smart guy and like my brain clean but i enjoy shroomz and thats that.

Thats weird because I have actually been able to retain things better ever since I started tripping. I have never acceditted this to tripping, but more to me personal growth. But I still have never noticed myself getting dumber.

Thanks for the replies!

i remember someone saying they liked reading a book while tripping, so i thought it might be a good combination.
im a novice at shrooming, as you're probly figured out by now, therefore this question is kinda lame then i guess  :shrug:

by 'brain booster' i meant that your thought processes are exaderated, or broadened i guess, therefore maybe making it easier to take in large amounts of information, for example when one is studying.

Did you remember the book in detail, better than you would while on mush?

Heh... I geuss a small dose, and a Lvl.1-2 trip, would be grounds for "studying". I would suggest studying before you trip though, you really wont want to deal with that shit when your shroomin'.

Shrooms do not make you dumber. They are less toxic to the brain than THC.
What they do is change the pattern in which the brain processes information by opening up new neuro pathways, and activating different parts of the brain thereby changing the normal pattern in which the person has grown so used to.
Anytime the mind is expanded it can often take time for the person to get used to the new alteration in their thinking patterns. This doesn't mean the person is dumber, it just means they are suddenly learning how to drive a slightly different vehicle, like switching to a ten speed, after years of driving a five speed. Or like learning a new language. It certainly will be awkward at first, and words and meanings don't come easy but eventually they become natural.
Every person processes the trip in different ways. Some people become heightened and more focused in the mental abilities they already have, while others become opened up a whole new realm that is completely foreign to them. All in all, with the right attitude and wisdom these drugs can broaden and even enhance our intelligence and awareness. It takes inner spiritual wisdom to take advantage of the changes of awareness which mushrooms bring. Fear which leads to a bad trip can be destructive and psychologically crippling. While love and faith can open a person up to new life and new worlds.
