shrooms getting weaker?
    #3797307 - 02/18/05 08:23 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

i've done shrooms six times now, and each time the trip gets weaker. its as if i'm getting a tolerance to it, but i've read that tolerance only lasts a few days, and all my trips have been two weeks or more apart.

the first time i tried them, i had 20g of fresh thai mushrooms and had quite a strong visual trip. the second time was 30g of mexicans, and this was considerably weaker. i tried several types of mushrooms, with doses of about 20-30g and each time the effects were weaker. the other day i had 40g of thai, and really didn't get much from it. a bit of a buzz, but no visuals or anything. should i just give up and stick to acid?

40 grams? im assuming these are fresh, correct?....you might just be getting used to the mushroom experience so it seems as if the effects are dwindiling......good luck

Definitely sounds like tolerance. Leave it longer between trips - also that way what you learned on the trip will have time to settle in!

Tolerance could be a part of it, but dosing on fresh mushrooms could be a bigger part. The fresh doses you mentioned in the 20-40 gram range could all very well dry out to a few grams, or possibly less. Fresh dosing is totally unreliable, dosage wise. Look at these pics, and imagine how small even your 40 gram dose could have been in actuality.

> i've read that tolerance only lasts a few days

I have read that the earth is flat, but that doesn't make it so.  :grin:

Everybody is different, and this is how it works for me.  My tolerance is near 100% for the first few days, but drops down to maybe 80% by the end of the first week.  Probably around 50% after two weeks, and down to around 15% after a month.  I doubt I drop down to baseline until two months have passed.

you should dry out your shrooms and grind them up to make pills. you can do a eigth in a matter of seconds as opposed to eating them witch takes longer. the pills hit hard and quick, your will most def be in outerspace going that route.

I'm with you on this one dude. I ate 75g fresh of cubensis last night hoping to achieve a level 4, or even level 5 trip. Nothing like this happened, and my experience could only really be attributed to level 3. No ego loss, but I did have some pretty stellar visuals...

Anyway, I've been giving it a lot of thought since then, it seems like you've just cleared up most of my misconceptions, thanks again.

Peace

Wow, that is alot different from the roughly ten percent thing that wet is about ten percent dried. That is nowhere near ten percent. That is cool. I guess the moral is that you must dose dried to figure out exactly how much you are going to get, and then the alkaloid content is different from harvest to harvest to so...
