Hi. My best friend and I tripped on mushrooms over the weekend, 1/8th each. I had previously used acid, MG seeds, and salvia each once. (These past experiences were all pretty mild).
We ate them at about 12:30 on a peanut butter sandwich (although we didn't find the taste to be objectionable, actually). We went for a walk and began to feel sensation in our stomachs about 20 minutes after ingestion. Began to notice slight visual anomalies. We walked through on some trails in the woods, and it was delightful. We walked so slowly, examining everything that we came across. The fall leaves on the ground and in the trees were amazing. I think we looked at every mushroom in the entire forest -- saw everything from the tiniest little mushrooms I have ever seen, growing out of a tree, to a titanic fungus a little bigger than a soccer ball with brown, ruffled flesh that blended in remarkably with the brown fall leaves on the ground. Most things we looked at (esp. mushrooms) seemed to have a "growing" quality, which looked as if it was quickly sprouting forth -- like a time-lapse video. Anyway, so we walked through the woods for about 2 or 3 hours, and then walked out and sat on a mound for another hour. So, after about 4 hours, most of the noticable effects of the mushrooms seemed to be gone -- I expected more from an eighth of shrooms, but I didn't mind -- I had a great, enjoyable, beautiful experience.
We made our way back to my girlfriend's place, and promptly smoked a little kind bud. After about 4 hits each, we concurred that we felt very messed up, and not having anywhere else to go (her roommate and her roommate's boyfriend were in her room), we went back outside. I was not expecting a few hits of weed to catapult me into a mental state that was far and away the most distressing chemical experience I've ever been through -- nothing like the previous 4 hours.
It was a nice day, but in our state, it felt really bizaare -- loud noises, bright colors, lots of people around. There was this music that we thought we heard, but neither of us sure if it was really there. As I remember it, everything seemed like an enormous struggle. Everything had a grand scale. We walked around for a bit, but having no place to really just sit down and be alone, we ended up in my car. Every song on the radio was putrid, everything seemed so artificial and put-on. Every moment seemed as if it lasted at least a few years. Everything I said was either "woah" or just utter nonsense. I could not form or speak anything coherent. I felt very disconnected from everything and just felt very stupid. There were moments of clarity and niceness, but by and large I just felt stupid and pretty worthless. I didn't have visual or auditory hallucinations -- just bad thoughts and an odd way of thinking and severe time distortion. We eventually ventured out of the car into town. We were incredibly indceisive about what we wanted to do and what we were going to do. We walked around this small town for a few minutes (decades), and finally ended at up at a restaurant where we drank tea. While we were inside, there was some rain, and just weird, weird sky. When we got back outside, it was sunny, and there was a huge double-rainbow in the sky. I had pretty much come down by then, thankfully. I laughed at the rainbow; it seemed like such a cheesey ending to a trip -- something Jerry Garcia might have written about.
So, the point of my post is: Has anyone else been taken by surprise like this after smoking pot? When we smoked that bowl, I thought that the trip was virtually over. But in retrospect, it seems as if it had actually never fully begun until we smoked. At the time, I thought it was hellish and absurd, but looking back on it, I've learned a lot from it. I think part of the reason I had such a bad time was because I was not expecting it -- I was just expecting to chill out after our adventure in the woods. Now I want to try mushrooms again even more because I'll know more what to expect.
Well i find that when i smoke weed, it brings me down from my mushroom experience. But i wish it could have the same effect on me... What state do you live in (seariously)... Id like to taste some of that kind bud
