Newb question about dosage
    #3795632 - 02/17/05 11:09 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I've never done shrooms of any kinds, and I keep looking at these pics of harvests. One recent thread has a pic of about 6 medium sized cubes that weigh about 30 grams wet. Since I'm going to take about 15-20 wet grams for my first trip, I was thinking to my self that it seems like a lot of shrooms to be eating. My friend who has done them said he just ate a single shroom about 2 inches long and had a good trip. I'm picturing myself eating 3-4 fresh shrooms to get my medium trip, and it just seems like too much, like it will be too hard of a trip. Did my friend just eat a really potent shroom or what? I've read about cube dosages, and apparently anywhere from 1.5-3 grams is a medium trip, but that's like a small handful of shrooms, and my friend says it's too much.


--------------------
Excerpt from one of my textbooks:
Therefore, between a then and its matching else, there cannot be an if statement without an else. Statements must be distinguished between those that are matched and those that are unmatched, where unmatched statements are else-less ifs and all other statements are matched.
I wonder if that would make more sense if I was tripping when I read it.

you must try to see.
sometimes the potency varies. and of course not all the organisms are the same.
for a medium trip i need 2-2,5g while a friend of mine needs only 1,5-2g!
you must try them and decide what's for you

I am very drug sensitive... small doses effect me harder than my friends. It's so bad that if the doctor goes to prescribe me a pain killer I tell him make it a weak one.

"I like cigarettes, Miss Taggart. I like to think of fire held in a man's hand. Fire, a dangerous force, tamed at his fingertips. I often wonder about the hours when a man sits alone, watching the smoke of a cigarette, thinking. I wonder what great things have come alive from such hours. When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind---and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."

Guess we'll see. I just feel weird about eating 5 shrooms when my more experienced friend says he only needed 1.

You need to understand that 1 2inch shroom could be a skinny little stickler, or a fat monster that will weight an 8th by itself when its dry. 20 wet grams sounds like a good first dose. I'd recommend eating them dry. They just seem easier to get down IME. And even if you dont like them they'res still way less to eat. Just FYI 20 grams wet = roughly 2 dry.

1: what species? it might not have been a cubensis
2: you cant really weigh out shrooms by count/size either
3: everyones different :shrug:

i can trip very hard off of a 1 gram while my inexpierienced friend comfortably eats 1/4 ounce and trips about as hard as me. just experiment. start with smaller does and work your way up and see what is best for you. if you start to panic just remember that it doesnt matter how hard you are tripping it will all be over in a few hours. you only trip hard until after the peak, then you just start feelig like you are stoned and you will be relaxed.

I'm gonna go ahead and eat 20 grams wet when the time comes.  I'll let you guys know how my first trip went off my own home grown shrooms.  It'll be pretty damn exciting for me, and I'll try to make it exciting for you guys too.  Hopefully, I'll know within 3 weeks :wink:

> I'm gonna go ahead and eat 20 grams wet when the time comes.

That is a pretty decent dosage. You definitely will not underdose at that weight, and it is unlikely to be too much to handle as well. I did 12g wet my first time out and had a perfect time, but I only weight around 56 kg. (All of this assumes you are playing with cubes... other species will have different strengths...)

It really depends on the mushrooms. They are very, very variable. That doesn't sound right.

Just because your friend ate one mushroom and tripped hard doesn't mean shit. If you are really looking for a medium dose go ahead with your plan, but to tell the truth you may or may not get what you are looking for. You could get the same amount of psilocybin from 1 gram, of really potent shrooms, or 5 grams, of really shitty shrooms. Though since they are from your own grow, you should have a great time on your 20 wet gram dose. Enjoy it!


--------------------
No ONE wants to know the ultimate TRUTH, as soon as YOU find IT out, YOU want to forget IT.

You are everything's way of feeling itself.

Happy Schwag, everygodly!

20 wet grams is ok for your first trip,
so that you can see how your body reacts to shrooms.

Thanks for the reassurance guys, 20 grams it is!

Why not just dry them and know how your dose compares. Wet weights are very illusive in my opinion. Ramp up, baby!
