If i tend to trip on just weed, should i shroom?
    #4323945 - 06/22/05 09:52 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

When i smoke a lot people with me always say that i look like I'm tripping, and for me I'll admit, it is a pretty crazy experience. I want to try mushies wicked bad and i have a date all set aside where my house is empty for the night and a few kids will join me. They're just afraid that the shrooms might be too strong for me.
What do you think???

its an entirely different drug. just because you're sensitive to one drug doesn't mean you'll be sensitive to any other. if you're really worried, just do a smaller dose than everyone else.

I agree. Just eat a half eighth or so, and see how that goes.

Low doses are the way to go with mush until you get your fungus legs.

Handling weed and shrooms are completely different. With low doses of shrooms you don't get the anxiety disoriented/confused feeling that you do with weed, but it can feel like it is harder to control your brain and stay calm. I have an easier time with a low dose of shrooms than with alot of pot, but I also recognize there are more risks involved. Set and setting are VERY important with shrooms. Your environment and state of mind play a big role in how well your trip goes.

In my experience, that should be reworded to: "With shrooms, you'll get infinitely more confusion/anxiety/disorientation than with weed, AND it WILL feel like it's harder to control your brain and stay calm."

To me (and many others), cannabis relieves anxiety and allows me to think more clearly. Mushrooms, on the other hand, are a near 100% guarantee of anxiety (in addition to tickling the 5HT receptor that causes anxiety, you also get a norepinephrine dump 3 times larger than that of LSD. I'm not saying this is bad, necessarily (in fact, the anxiety to me is an intrinsic part of the experience), but it definitely happens. Also, in my and many other peoples' experiences, mushrooms are all-around more confusing/disorienting and "darker" (for lack of a better word) than mescaline or LSD. (I realize that every drug affects each person differently, but figured I ought to provide the other end of the spectrum)

But, as other have said, cannabis and mushrooms are not related, so physiological susceptability to one means nothing in regards to the other. A better indication is how you psychologically handle "tripping" on pot. If it's really really intense, possibly even uncomfortably intense, but you still enjoy it, then you probably wouldn't have problems with a reasonably large amount of mushrooms. Nevertheless, large amounts of mushrooms aren't something that I would encourage anyone to try unless they had first tried smaller amounts (i don't recommend that anyone who hasn't tripped before eats more than a half-eighth).

Does the complete opposite to me, actually.

Mushrooms do seem to have a darker character. However, at reasonable doses I never feel like I don't know what it is going on, can't remember where I am, what I'm doing. Mushrooms are a much smoother drug than marijuana which just chops up your short term memory. To me it is far less confusing and disoreinting (at less than 2 grams). Mushrooms never smack you in the face with a "Oh shit, I'm stoned" lapse of thinking.

I remember some anxious/paranoid thoughts with shrooms my first time, but I'd definitely give a low dose a whirl.  Don't let what some of these people said here stop you from a small dose.  You'll be fine if you have a good frame of mind, people you trust, and a safe and comfortable environment around you while tripping.

Good Luck!  :mushroom2:
