As long as they are not one of the very potent strains of mushrooms 1/8 should be ok, but dont venture above that.... for now :mushroom2:

An 1/8th will take you into a journey to a different... state of mind. It makes for a fun and decently intense experience, and still really easy to handle. Go for it man.

If you haven't ever experienced psychedelics I would say that 2g's is a good first time dose. Nothing can really prepare you for a trip, you just have to experience it for yourself. I am an experienced shroomer and 3.5g's (an eighth) of good shrooms will make me trip extremely hard.

The weirdest thing tho is that I trip much harder off eighths now than I did when I tripped on mush a few years ago.

I ate an eighth my first time and it was a good trip. I was freaked out at first cause I was with a group of ppl and I only knew one of them well, but I adapted and it was cool. I saw a guys hair turn into fire and I thought I was a ghost

An eighth of an ounce, 3.5 grams.

And yes, I would recommend a full eighth if you at least have read some things about it, and know a little about what to do.

Just take half ^_^

I agree with Cubieman: 1/8 oz dried shrooms can make you trip extremely hard. I don't know what's up with the 3.5gr but that dose can totally blast most veteran trippers I know.

The majority of Shroomerites recommends up to 2gr to a newbie (see The Great Mushrooms Poll) so I'd say half an eighth's worth (1.75gr)would be ample. Half an eighth of average potency cubies still does it for me after 12+ years and 100+ trips. I typically work with 0.25-2gr.

1.75gr typically falls between 10-20mg Psilocybin (0.6-1.2% dry wt) and that's the ratio recommended by most psychedelic literature.

The same dose will become evermore complex and rich as time moves on unless you use it too often. Over the years you will find your resistance to the Experience decrease, so less will take you further. If you use too often or too much at first you might never see the breathtaking sights the Mushroom keeps for those with patience and respect.

Agreed, take ~1.75, an 1/8 will cause you to trip very hard, especially if those are "good" cultivated mushrooms. It could be too much for someone who has never tripped before.


Welcome to the shroomery by the way :cool:!

True. It could be. But taking less than 2g? I don't hardly feel anything at 2g. Anything less than 2.5g would, imho, be a dissappointing first trip. And 3 g would be prefferable. And if you're already at 3, why not just make it an 1/8 :grin: :mushroom2:

i took a full 8th the first time and had a great time. Stop bitching out no 2g beginning dose, go for the full 8th trust me you'll be thanking us later.

I would have to say that depends on YOU. meaning everyone is different when it comes to the mushroom. I had a friend that ate 15 fresh Azzies down in Astoria and from what he tells me never did trip. I can eat less than half an eigth and have loads of fun. I think it probably depends on what you want to happen.

It all depends on your mindset and understanding of psychedelics. If you're prepared for an intense, possibly frighteningly so experience, and you have a strong mind then go for it. If you're really nervous (a little nervous is normal) about it, then start low and work your way up.
