First Timer, tips?
    #675811 - 06/12/02 11:16 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I did my first dose of shrooms today, I took half an eigth... not sure what that is in grams though (if like weed then I'm assuming 1.75?), but anyways, my trip was alot milder than I expected (no major visuals, minor body high) , I've done LSD before ( was hoping it would be similar). But my question is, how much shrooms would I have to take to equal about four hits of average strength acid? I'm thinking about going back to my friend and buying an eigth tommorow. Oh another thing, he said to chew on them for 30 mins before swallowing, but I only chewed them and swallowed them instantly, could that have anything to do with the mildness of my trip? Thanks in advance.

First read this page, it explains the 5 basic trip levels;

http://www.shroomery.org/dosageandingestion/rate.html

Sounds like you got abot what I'd expect from a gram and a half.

There's a dosage calculator at this site;

http://www.shroomery.org/dosageandingestion.php?View=docs&doc=1

I think it's a bit conservative though, add about a gram to what it tells you.

You're looking for a SERIOUSLY strong trip which you really don't need on shrooms. A level 4 trip is MORE than sufficient.

You can't get off on shrooms too often. Your tolerance is built way up immediately upon felling the peak effects. You need to wait AT LEAST a week
to trip again (it takes 3-4 MONTHS to get the tolerance back down to normal).

If you were to eat 7 grams toimorrow you'd probably get the effect of 3 grams.
If you had just eaten the entire 3.5 grams today, you'd have been a very happy fun-guy!

I usually put 'em in a blender with a half cup of iced tea. Works great.

dosage depends on the person of course, but trying to compare shrooms and acid trips is tough because they are both very different trips (at least i think so) acid is more hard trippin rigid visuals and with shrooms its like a real dreamy state filled with dripping ceilings and shivering clouds and more organic looking images. I guess thats a natural trip vs. synthetic though. I still like em both! Oh yeah and forget what your friend said about chewing em for 30 mins, just chew em enough to swallow or make some kind of a drink (i'll usually just eat em though). better luck next time.......

well did you eat fresh, "wet" mushrooms? or dry ones?

if you ate dry shrooms as i assume. and your looken for a bit more intensity, step it up a notch, and go for an eigth...although in my opinion, i dont like eating full dry eigths anymore because they really bother my stomach, in fact the last dried shroom eigth i ate i hurled. but i have a sneaking suspicion it was the KFC bucket O' chicken that did me in, and not the shrooms. (i had the misfortune of having to eat the shrooms when i wasnt expecting to, which i reccomend against now, given my better judgement these days)

TripMeister,

>>You need to wait AT LEAST a week
to trip again (it takes 3-4 MONTHS to get the tolerance back down to normal).

No disrepsect friend, but where do you get the 3-4 months tolerance information from? Most tryptamines are water soluble and are out of the body within 36-72 hours from ingestion. Here is information I found on Erowid regarding mushroom tolerance. If you can provide any more sources regarding psylocibe/psylocibin tolerance I'd appreciate it!


Addiction Potential
Mushrooms are neither physically addicting nor likely to cause psychological dependance. Many people actually find that their desire to use mushrooms goes down for a period of time after use. As with all substances, some people will use them more frequently than they are comfortable with. There is a short period of tolerance after Mushroom use. Using Mushrooms two days in a row is likely to lead to a diminished experience the second day, though spaced 5-7 or more days apart, this effect is nearly non-existent.

The above was quoted from:

http://www.erowid.org/plants/mushrooms/mushrooms_basics.shtml

Love & Light,

Boppity

No disrespect taken Bop... My info comes from not only my own 22+ years of shroomin' experience, but my brother's and most of my friends who've experienced the same tolerance effects.

Also, I've done some research into the subject and found that although water soluble, the active ingredients in the shrooms (tryptamines - psilocin and psilocyben) cannot be detected in urine after 48 hours of ingestion, but CAN be detected in SPINAL FLUID for up to 4 MONTHS. This is why the tolerance stays up for considerably longer than most people seem to think. The theory is testable by any reader of this post who can wait longer than 3 months between trips. They will find that the effects are noticeably enhanced from doing the same weight they used to do 7 days to 14 days apart.

Just MHO friends!

TM,

Right on...I wasn't doubting your personal experience...I'm just one of those geeks that tries to read/study as much as possible about new substances/experiences before I do them. I appreciate your info and respect!

And for music...GOA!!!!
