Ok, maybe this is a dumb question...
    #3695161 - 01/28/05 09:21 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Right, i've read a bit about other people's shroom experiences, and they all seem to have taken much smaller amounts than I have. I live in the UK where there is some haziness regarding the law and sale of shrooms. A local headshop sells shrooms (Psilocybe Cubensis) in bags of 30g fresh, which is my usual doseage and seems to be alot higher than what i've read other people take (I eat them fresh). Is it because everyone else eats theirs dried that their weight is smaller? Confused!!!

30 grams fresh is equal to about 3 grams dried.

Cheers mate! My next question then is what is the advantage of drying the shrooms? I've never done it, but I assume it just makes them easier to eat. It's quite hard to force down 30g of fresh, to say the least.

30 fresh grams can easily dry out to 1.5 grams-been there, seen that too many times. Fresh dosing is unreliable.

I've found personally that eating fresh mushrooms is much more palatable than eating dried mushrooms. This is because dried ones require a lot of chewing to get down, and the taste is way more concentrated, whereas you can get a fresh mushroom down in two bites and it doesn't taste like much.

Mushrooms are dried to preserve them for later use or sale.

Psilocin is lost in the drying process as well... no reason to dry them if you can legally purchase them whenever you want. Drying is for storage.

What kind of a trip do you get off 30g? When I take 3 grams dried, I trip balls, everything in my field of vision moves, it gets crazy. 2 grams, minor visuals, lotta fun, light trip. I gage my dose according to the situation I'm gonna be in.

I prefer them fresh with orange juice because they're mostly water so it's not that big of a deal. I did 26 grams fresh, 18 grams of it being fresh aborts. It's hard to compare it and desribe how it was, but it kicked ass.

From 30g fresh, i get a mild to medium trip. Time perception goes out of the window, things just do not stop moving, occasionally when i speak it sounds in my head like i'm talking through a wah-wah pedal or something. I get visual trails when I move my hands in front of my face and i notice things growing and shrinking. Hand co-ordination is next to impossible and I find i can't roll cigarettes anymore! When I close my eyes I see intricate geometric patterns in many colours and if i stop concentrating enough, i can forget that my body is there and it becomes irrelevant. Also, the effects seem to hit me in waves and sometimes catches me off-guard leaving me with a manic grin on my face!
