For nothing. No use/harm of it.

This is not going to answer your question about the shrooms but I can tell you about acid and x. I've read on hear that "it is all in your head that vitamin c enhances your roll or trip." Well maybe so but when I do it it sure seems to intesify the situation for me. Also what happens when you roll and trip serotonin is released from your brain and vitamin c replinishes serotonin so they are constantly going back and forth. Now that is my understanding of vitamin c. Not sure if this helps.

do you really think vitamin c really replenishes seritonen that much. i mean if it really made that much of a difference i could stop taking remiron, prozac, celexa, depicote, and ephexer and just take a some vit c every day.

here is some info I found on the net

Vitamin C, orange juice, and/or other fruit does not "activate" a mushroom experience. It is just as healthy as sober, however. Other effects are placebo. Don't overdose on vitamins because you think it enhances the effect. However,

I'd strongly suggest eating some fruit during your trip (it's the most wonderful thing-- really!). Drinking/eating a small amount of anything may help in digestion of the mushrooms and speed the chemicals on their way. Drinking some water is suggested. (Since one of the side-effects of Psilocybin may also be increated sweating, it is advised you drink water anyway, to prevent dehydration.)

There is NO strychnine in mushrooms. There is no strychnine in LSD, either. In fact, there's no strychnine added to any drugs! If you don't believe me, ask your local organic chemist *or better yet* go to the library.

Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the incidence of paranoia and prevent depletion of the vitamin from
the adrenal glands during LSD trips.(Hoffer & Osmonds ?The psychedelic s?) Central nervous system stimulants can be grouped into three major categories, Psychomotor stimulants (e.g. cocaine, amphetamines, nicotine, caffeine, aphetamines, dextroamphetamines, methylphenidate, etc);
convulsants and respiratory stimulants; and f inally psychotomimetic (hallucinogenic) stimulants, e.g. tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and phencyclidine (PCP). Hallucinogens quite simply involve all drugs that cause hallucinations. Also known as psychedelic drugs, psycoto mimetics have in common, the ability to altersensory perception and normal thought processes. Psycotomimetics produce a
mind state similar to psychosis [Psychosis is a major mental disorder in which the personality is very seriously disorganized and cont act with
reality is usually impaired] and can evoke wide mood swings, timedistortions and a phenomenon known as ?syesthesia?, where the senses are distorted to the extent that colors, for example, are perceived to be ?tasted?, and sounds ?seen?. While th e exact thing that produces the psychic effects of LSD is unknown at this time, it is believed that it?s
effect centers around it?s influence at the serotonin receptor sites in the central nervous system. [Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (chemical messeng er between nerve cells] that is thought to be involved in sensory
perception, sleep inducement, regulation of body temp. and mood control]. Many areas of the brain that are heavily influenced by these seretonin
producing neurons are associated with the bo dy?s visual and limbic systems. [the limb system is the portion of the brain that is involved with various angles of emotion and behavior] When nerves are activated by nerve impulse they normally release the neurotransmitter serotonin (neurotransmitters a re chemical substances that transmit nerve impulses
(messages) from one cell to another in effect allowing them to transmit information throughout the body). Once released, the neurotransmitters cross a gap (known as a synapse) between the adjacent cells and bind with serotonin receptors. It is believed that LSD inhibits the presynaptic
receptors of the serotinin producing neurons causing a decrease in the ability of serotonin to inhibit the post synaptic neuron. Also the effect of the LSD is that is allows ?excitatory? neurotransmitters (normally
subdued by the presence of serotonin) to influence the postsynaptic neuronand increases the possibility of uninhibited actions. More and more things are being learned through experaments concerning LSD, and as we conduct more tests the more we can understand about the drug itself, and the people who take it.
