So me and my friend are going to try mushrooms for the first time
    #7457016 - 09/26/07 08:50 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

So I was wondering,

any tips on things we should / shouldn't do.

Yes, I have been reading around but I would like to hear more people's opinions first.

Like for instance, Is it ok to walk around my local neighbourhood. It's a very quiet place. Not many cars or people around during the day.

As a first dose. How much should we take? I have no idea how much I'm getting but me and my friend have put $50 AU together and given it to a very well trusted friend who is going to purchase that much worth from a very well trusted dealer of hers.

I can remain calm very easily so I doubt I am going to suffer from anxiety or fear lol

So yeah... any opinions? Answers?

Thanks so much in advance,

Adrian.

well, for your first time you arent going to want to take a full cut i dont believe. unless you know the mushrooms aren't up to par with their potency. But for the most part you are gonna want to test them before you dive into them.

You will start to go somewhere, and they you will get distracted with something. That is almost a fact. It is so hard not to get distracted and "stuck" in places and with different things. You will go into the bathroom and not want to come out because the things in there are so cool, then you leave, go into another room, and get comfortable there.

As long as there isnt much human contact, you should be fine in public, and i highly recommend going outside for your trip. Theres nothing better than nature when you are tripping. bring a music player with you, you will thank yourself later.

pack a backpack full of supplies if you plan to go somewhere (hopefully you arent driving). fill it with snacks, drinks, and anything that you could possibly need. draw stuff, play with legos, and stuff of that nature.

uuuh... make sure you have NO obligations. obligations suck when you are tripping (for me at least).

thats all i can think of right now. ill probably post some stuff later.

hope that helped!

Just make sure youve got no obligations, appointments, or anything you have to worry about. Listen to really open (live) music, stare at some nature. But i dont suggest going in highly public places your first time

I'd go with a lower dose for your first time, just to make sure you like it, you know what i mean? I'd go with around 1.5 thats what i did. Its better to be safe than sorry, you could always trip again if you feel it wasn't strong enough you don't wana do too much and be overwhelmed your first time:mushroom2:
have fun man

So I understand.. lower dose..

but, how am I to determine how much a "low dose" is?

I don't understand the 1/2 and stuff.

How many mushrooms would a low dose be?

It's by weight dawg, not how many.

You have grams in ur country, correct?

1/8th of an ounce = roughyl 3.5 grams.
1/4 = roughly 7
etc.

Ask your friend how much he's getting for you. $50AU sounds like about an 1/8? But I'd definitely check. Anyways, half an eighth is what I took my first two times with teh same friend, we had such an awesome time! First time we walked around the city, we must have walked at -least- 3 miles before settling down at a park near his house and stayed there for a good while. We lay on the grass and watched the clouds make weird patterns, then we started playing all these dumb little word games (which were SOOO fun and amusing at the time ;-)).

Anyways, good vibes your way mate!! You'll have an awesome time! Don't even worry about planning ahead (well, I mean... of course make sure you have no responsibilities and whatnot). Just let the trip take you wherever. Tripping with friends is always a blast!

Simple.

So once I get them I should way it out so I don't take too much then.

And yeah... we have grams here. Australia. :laugh:

I dunno dude. a full cut can be a full blown psychedelic exprience, and if its your first time, and you get overwhelmed and you are in public, thats a recipe for having a terrible trip, and possibly getting the cops involved.

If you plan to stay at home and not do anything, then you could take a full cut, but not your first time taking mushrooms in public. I just think that is a bad idea.

A high dose is considered 4 grams +
A moderate to high dose is around 2.5-3.5 grams
a low dose is 2 grams or less
Edit: these are just what i consider high, moderate, and low doses. There are tons of opinions about this.

Of course, given what the potency is of the mushrooms you take, you can have a pretty intense trip off of 2 grams. I'd split a cut between you and your friend. If things arent intense enough an hour after you have come up, eat some more accordingly. But dont rush into it. You have plenty of time moderate your mushroom eating.

OK. Low dose it will be then.

And so how long would the whole trip last based on your experiences?

2 Grams is ideal for testing the waters IMO.

Just becuse you can remain calm while not intoxicated or even on MJ that does mean you can do the same on shrooms. Imagine that you are having a period or something, and then you can understand it is not in your control. You basically are on an emotional roller coaster, because of the fluctuation of seratonin levels in your brain.

Everyone here suggests 1/8 for first dose. I disagree I am on the conversative side of dosing. If you are hesistant about your first time, then I would suggest 1.5g. It will be a good dose to get you going and not a waste either. Don't over do it. People always come back bitching about what they should've known. Set your dose out at exactly 1.5g or 3.5g and then lock the rest away so you don't get any stupid ideas about taking more on a whim.

Just don't over do things keep it easy. Stay away from the public.
Oh, and don't forget a blanket. Think of yourself as a primal animal that can do anything spontaneously and have great fear and immense knowledge, then when you account for your personality while tripping you'll have a great time. Have a Nice Trip!:mushroom2:

lol yeah, I PM'd him and yeah.. he said he just google my username. lol

Yeah I'll take 2 grams or so then.

So.. what.. do I just weigh it on scales and that's how I figure out how much 2 grams is?

Fair enough.. arg mixed advice. lol. Well I guess 1.5g should do it then. And because I will probably have some left over, I'll save it for a few days then if I liked the trip I'll go on one again. :laugh:
