how much to take.
    #4520753 - 08/11/05 02:30 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I'm about to shroom for the first time this weekend, if all goes according to plan. I've been thinking about eating an 8th, same with my friend. We have a house that will be empty for three days to do it in as well.

I was wondering if an 8th was too much? I was told I might trip too hard and freak out.

I was hoping to get some advice on what to expect and whatnot.

it's the first drug I've ever taken besides weed/alcohol. if that counts for anything

If you eat an eighth you'll have a great mushroom experience. Most people that split an eighth their first time wish that they had done the full eighth. Remember, it's just a chemical and the effects will wear off soon.

i generally recommend 2g for a first time. you can always do a higher dose next time, and 2g will give you an idea of what the experience is like without throwing you in at the deep end.

I highly doubt you'd wig out and lose it on an 1/8th for your first time. I'd recomend and 1/8th. anywhere from 2.5 -3.5 grams and you'll be having the time of your life!!! The first time is always the greatest!

Do the eighth man  :shroomer:

You've come here and asked for advice... shows that your mature and of a good mindset in my oppinion.

Make sure you set the room up before hand, get some stuff to play with, few lights, music all set up ready etc

Putting a CD on when your shroomed up is a little confusing... Well everything is slightly confusing...  :smirk: :mushroom2:

An eighth will probably be pretty intense.

But as long as you've done your research on the experience you should be in good condition.

I would start with 2.5 grams and then eat the extra gram if your liking the effects of 2.5 once you start feeling them.

its really a personal choice.. question to ask yourself would be: have you ever freaked out from drugs before? how hard tot you want to trip? how much out of it am i willing to go?

but an eigth sounds fine to me :P

2g and you are almost gauranteed pure euphoria and satisfaction.

1/8 and theres a chance you might get stuck in a time loop...

...cuz you never know how good they really are, ya know?

Most places you will find on the net will say 3.5 grams. This is the best way to go. If you eat less, chances are either you will have very little or no effects, depending on the quality of the shrooms. I have never eaten less than an 8th, and in fact I ate 5 grams my very first time, which was by myself, and I was just fine. 3.5 grams is perfect imo for a newbie. It might be a *little* intense if they are decent to good mushrooms, but nothing you wont be a ble to handle unless you have the mental capacity of a 6 yr old to start out with.

I wouldnt do an eigth the first time.

Sometimes an eigth is hard for me to handle and I'm pretty experienced.

But just make sure you are in a controlled environment. That's probably the most important thing.

I have never had an 8th be too much. If you have a friend with you, you will be fine. Just remember, it is a drug, and you are fine, and you will return to reality within a few hours.

Well, usually an eigth is fine, but with th ere being really n o way of knowing potency without taking them, sometimes an eigth is like taking 5 or more grams of less potent shrooms.

I never take less than an eigth anymore. I just sometimes have to really stay focused on not freaking out.

an eighth will be an intense trip, if thats what you want. i think it's a much more memorable experience eating an eighth over 2 grams. you may not realize the power of mushrooms with only 2 grams. 2 grams would definitely be controllable, but you may not get any visuals. an eighth will most likely give you visuals, and your thought processes will really change(just dont be afraid of it, it goes away 6 hours after you eat them).

just remember go with the flow, don't try to find it, and you'll have an amazing time.

Yeah, going with the flow is important. The mushrooms may lead you in certain directions of thought and what it wants you to do (it will teach you lessons) so it is a good idea to just sit back, and go with what comes your way. Dont be afraid, and if you must smoke some herb to put you in the right mindset. Listen to some relaxing music, etc. Just make sure you are in a good mood, dont eat anything for 5 - 6 hours before you consume the mushies, and make sure nothing unexpected that might freak you out can happen.
Also, I myself have a strong opinion on the 8th thing, but of course, he is right about if somehow they are freakishly potent it may be intense.

I say do the 1/8. My first time I did an 1/8 and it was pretty intense but nothing I couldnt handle. I guess it all depends on the potency of the mushrooms though.
