Do I really need pot for an eighth and a half trip?
    #4199884 - 05/20/05 04:05 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Ha, the title says it all. I mean, will it actually do anything to boost the trip? Or will it make me "cloudy" and paranoid? Or will I be so zonked that there's no way I could even operate a pipe?

I ask because I am tripping tonight, but I realize that I'm fresh out of pot, which I've used on previous trips. But, I've never dosed this high before (a formidable dose!) and so I was just wondering if I'll really need it.

Nah you dont need, there is much that the mushrooms can tell you without any other allies. IMO, herb is great for the comeup and comedown(really brings it back up a notch). But to each their own. During the trip I rarely feel the need to smoke as I am already quite far out :smile: Have a good time :mushroom2:

It depends on YOU.

For some people, Marijuana during the beginning of a trip can simply take away some of the nausea of the body load. For others, it does nothing.

For some people, Marijuana during the (or right before) the peak can shoot them into outerspace. For others, it does nothing, they can't even feel the weed - might as well have been smoking cigarette, but I couldn't smoke a cigarette because the mushrooms assured me tobacco was very bad for me.

For some people, Marijuana during the come down can sort of "bring it back" a bit. For others, it, yet again, does not, and is more mellowing.

Unfortunately, that's how it is with these drugs and our bodies - everyone's different. Even WE are different depending on our set and setting... Sometimes for me, peak-smoking can boost it, sometimes it does nothing - and I have absolutely no idea why.

Good luck, be safe, and have fun.

Usually a single joint or bowl will do me good during the come up of a trip. Save the weed for the comedown, it goes well then.

Every empty bowl must be filled, and a full bowl must always be emptied.

5.2 grams is an awesome dose and IMO, needs nothing else. I always just get really paranoid and that 'speedy' type of thinking patterns when smoking and tripping.

I wouldnt recommend it, but its all up to you.

I wouldn't use anything with a dose of that amount. I do sometimes smoke during the comedown though. You should have some on hand just in case.

Curious...

I guess I would have liked to have pot for this trip, as it wasn't as mind-blowing as I thought it would be. I guess I underestimated pot's role in the psychedelic experience.

Don't get me wrong, I had a great time. I spent most of the trip outside in a beautiful meadow, watching the clouds, communing with trees, what have you. It was a very philosophical trip. But, I expected my ego to be completely shattered, and that didn't happen...it wasn't nearly so intense as the times when I had an eighth and smoked. Maybe it was some other factor, but I'm not sure...

Curious.

Pot and mushrooms synergize.

Also the mushrooms you had were only of average quality. If they were really good, five grams would have taken you to the moon.

Did you fast?

Yeah, I did fast! The one time I didn't fast there was significantly reduced potency, so since then I've always not eaten anything the day before the trip. So that wasn't the issue.

And, I mean, they could have been of lower quality than normal, but that seems a stretch. I've gotten shrooms from this guy before, and they've always been good. This trip was definitely fun, but it was not "to the moon"--more like a very positive, very philosophical mood with brighter colors and somewhat-more complex patterns in the clouds. Somewhat less than what I expected from >5g.

Honestly, I think it must have been the lack of pot. I get higher than most of my friends from just pot, and in previous trips smoking is what really launched me into colorful shroom-land. Well, that's good to know for the future

Isn't "sent you to the moon" a great phrase?  :tongue:

I agree though, I don't smoke pot, and my level 5 trip was on a little  over 4 grams. I think I just got lucky and because it was my first trip, couldn't control it too well, took me to my psyche and shot it a few times.

So it goes.

Interesting...

I didn't have any orange juice handy, I used limeade, which I assumed would be the same basic concept. Just chewed on 'em for a minute, washed it down with limeade. If that was a mistake somehow, please let me know, but I'm not sure exactly what happened.

Maybe it was just a fluke, again. Maybe it was some factor I'm not considering. Or maybe I'm just a pothead :rastamon:

The vitamin C thing has never been proved (correct me if I'm wrong, please provide sources). Some say it makes you trip stronger, others say it's good to get you down. I read somewhere about smart shops in Holland selling vitamin C capsules with the mushrooms so people could take them if they had a bad trip.

I think it's probably all about the placebo effect. A 5 gram trip will blow you away no matter if you eat the mushrooms with orange juice or water as far as I know.
