Daily low doses of mushrooms?
    #4151394 - 05/08/05 11:01 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Has anyone ever done experimentation or research into daily small doses of mushrooms? I'm not talking about a threshold dose, even smaller... just taken as a suppliment almost.

? You mean such as a health benefit? I dont think that would work, or even be wise, not to mention costly over a long period of time unless you cultivate your own.

Yes, I'm wondering what the effects would be. Again, I'm not talking about a large enough dose to even feel anything. I think I remember hearing something about this a long time ago, but I can't remember where or what the exact benefits were. I'm just wondering if it ever went anywhere.

I don't think small doses would be harmful, but every day over time I'm not sure about. Mushrooms are pretty friendly even in large doses.

it would improve your eye sight. studies have shown that sub psychedelic doses noticibly improve vision.

You don't happen to have any links to those studies do you?

i've noticed that myself, when i'm coming down I can see much more detail than I can normally. Things are more crisp than normal, it could just be all in my head, but it's still pretty rad.

I've got enough that I could experiment with this idea.  I'm thinking maybe 0.1gram capsulized shroom powder daily.  I'm tempted to try it for a month...  keep a log...  see what happens.  hmmmmm......:strokebeard:

i believe it was decades ago a scientist took mushrooms every day for like a year or something.  cured him of his OCD.  he stopped taking them and his OCD gradually returned.  this was in the 30s if i'm not mistaken.  furthermore i believe theres a MAPS-related study going down where 5 or so individuals with OCD have been given mushrooms to see if it helps.  with luck mushrooms could be FDA approved in the future.  (sorry i dont remember the links offhand right now, i think it was erowid)

i believe this is the rationale (and this part is my own conjecture)-the mushroom chemical in the brain (psilocybin or the other one, cant remember) binds to serotonin receptor sites.  the OCD brain is theoretically usually low in serotonin (much like the depressed brain).  thus mushrooms could bring a brain like this back to normal.

sorry if this post is garbled, im a little altered right now, but you get the idea :smile:

if you try it, let us know how it goes!

it will not harm you in any way but you will certainly grow a tolerance if you tried dosing more

Terrance McKenna, in an interview I read, said that brain activity, eye sight, and fertility all go up drastically when taking sub-psychadelic doses of shrooms. Its how the theory that apes eating shrooms forced their evolution into what we are now came about. Shrooms are undeniably healthy for you and at low doses overtime, Im sure youd notice an overall healthier feeling.

Ive always wanted to try this, but the funds simply havent been there.

I have a friend that gets cluster headaches and eats a small dosage of shrooms every day... only consumes around half a gram dry, not enough to trip, but they keep her headaches away.

I thought tripping once in a while was sufficient to keep cluster head aches away?

I don't cultivate my own but if you document improved eye-sight I might have to start. My eye-sight is going to shit. I hate having to wear glasses and don't want to have laser surgery because it's very un-natural and I don't have the funds anyway. Take care bro.

I'm definetely going to try this when the time is right.  Maybe next time I have to get my glasses renewed, I'll start myself on a regimen - and re-check my eyes after...  say a month.  Prolly wont be for a while but I will put it on my list of things to do and post a log. :grin:

Does anyone know of any other suposed "effects" of a low dose of daily shrooms I should try and log?

I'd be worried about desensitizing myself to psilocybin. You're essentially going to do the optimal tolerance boosting activity.

My friend is taking a semester abroad in london, where fresh mushies are readily available. After tripping a bunch during the beginning of his stay there, he says mushrooms have totally 'lost the magic' for him...

now, when he eats 35 wet grams, he gets a bit dizzy and sick on come up, then feels happy and has sharper vision during the experience, kinda hallucinates. no more cosmic visions, no more revelations. its just gone.

Just a word of warning, I'm not saying you shouldn't do it, just realize it might mess up future tripping.

i picked up the information about sub psychedelic doses of fungi improving eye sight from a mckenna lecture in which he mentioned the scientist who conducted it but i don't remember specifics. i have also read about mush working miracles for people suffering from cluster head aches--this information can be found on maps somewhere. man quite amazing what these little guys can do in both psychedelic and sub psychedelic doses.

not that its been proven/researched or anything of the sort, but an interesting factoid nonetheless: the mayan priests used to take mushrooms in ceratin ceremonies, and they believed that people who took them too much aged at an accelerated rate.
on a side not, my vision is really bad, and i've noticed that before i feel any noticable effects my vision seems to get a little better..


--------------------
Under his instruction, I taped drumsticks to his head and turned him into a sort of mummy, or perhaps a caterpiller in a cocoon. He remains this way for about three hours, making bizarre noises, pretending to be a new species that must learn to walk and talk and eat, etc. And he communicates with other life forms by way of the antennae on his head. Eventually we jam a tube from a waterbong into it's mouth and figure he's learned all he needs to know.

Every trip Iv taken with Lucy my eyesight seems to be greatly enhanced. I have very shitty eyes but while tripping things are very crisp and clear. I still can't read somthing very far away but I can read it at a further distance than I could while not trippiing. Colors are much more crisp though. Very noticeable. I don't find myself squinting without the glasses on while on Lucy..

I think it has somthing to do with your pupils while on a lot of different hullucinogens. I think there is somthing scientific that explains it anyways. Anybody have any ideas?

That would be cool to find out that low doses of shrooms do improve your vision. The effects I experienced with lucy only lasted during the peak. Never improved my vision.
