does sugar (fructose and/or sucrose detract from the trip?

I have heard that having any kind of sugar with your shrooms (sucrose or fructose) will take away from the trip....is this true? I would love some sugar in my mushy tea. And if one was so inclined (hypothetically) when would the best time to smoke a joint be when you take shrooms....I heard if you smoke to early it cuts back on the visuals....but if done right it really helps to kick them in.

I don't really see any reason it would. I think you'll be totally safe with a little bit of sugar in your tea. Also remember that there are alternatives to sugar, such as artificial sweeteners (keeping in mind that any sweetener is bad for you :wink:)

I've used honey in my tea with no ill effects.

Absense of evidence is not evidence of absense...

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
              Carl G. Jung

 
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."
Terence McKenna

see....I think the mexicans stored there in honey....but then again...maybe they would have had to consume more because of that. Anyone else heard anything about the whole sugars deal?

I think that may be a mixup between psilocybes and mescaline. Something about the mechanism of action for mescaline inhibits your brain from using glucose (see The Doors of Perception by Huxley), so that may be what the head shop workers were referring to. I've also used honey in tea with no noticeable ill-effects.

I find the best time to smoke a joint is about an hour after you ingest, right as you begin peaking. It really calms your stomach and your nerves and helps you settle into your trip.

Shrooms have a naturally very high sugar content (although it may not taste like it). When you boil shrooms down and let the psilo-water evaporate, what are you left with? Caramel. Sugar and psilocybin.
So i dont see how this could be true.

I'm usually half-way through a coca-cola when I eat mine, so there's definitely some sugar in my bloodstream. Ten to fifteen minutes after ingesting, I might have another sip or two as well, but I don't seem to want to drink much after I've eaten them.
