Last Minute Advice for A Shroom Trip

2 years, 7 months ago

I have 50$ of mushrooms that I may or may not share with a friend tonight. Should I buy more or is that adequate for two people? We plan on sleeping outside with candles, glassware that makes excellent trip toys, and head phones alike. If you have any advice (broad or specific) it would be much appreciated.

weigh them. I’d aim for about 1g per person.
make sure nobody bothers you, especially authorities can be tricky.
also

When in doubt, turn off your mind, relax and float downstream

have a wonderful time!

@lamekillers, I second the idea to make sure that nobody bothers with you, authorities or otherwise. be in a place that you trust to be secure and safe. try not to burn anything down with the candles, cause that will draw authorities to you for sure.

above all, RELAX YOUR MIND!!!!

Make sure to remember:

To say this to yourself if you start to wander in a direction you don’t want to go

7.6gs was the magic number for me. Everything before that was simply recreational.

@bigred, after 5g it’s just a waste, the effects cut off at 5g.

each dried gram of shroom brings you to a level of psychedelic from 1-5 depending on the frequency you experience.

dried of course.

oh and fyi : 1g shrooms = good weed, weed is lvl 1.

Prices vary so what is relevant is not how much you paid for it but how much you have.

Hopefully you have a quarter, 7g. That’s perfect to split with someone, an eighth is a very strong trip if they’re good or better. It’s far too large of a dose for a first-timer and is still well more than experienced psychonauts often bother with. In fact I usually have 2g or hardly over.

It doesn’t top off at 5g as was claimed above, but doses above 5g will likely have too much unpleasant side-effect to enjoy the immensity of the experience that is possible. You simply have to allow your mind to go to “the other side” for the best effects and this will not happen right if you’re gagging, puking, aching, afraid, having to deal with someone’s trip, so forth.

@dsundre, It doesn’t work like that. What the hell?

@lamekillers, I hate only half a tripping. It’s such a tease. And tripping with only one other person it can get really awkward between you unless you have an intimate friendship.
I’d do them alone.
You will come to profound truths if you let yourself explore in solitude.

Next time you do shrooms make it your intention to merge with the shroom.

ask it yourself it is very much sentient.

@dsundre, your second post is certainly very true.

Past 5g the notable effects may not change much, but hyper space lucidity increases quite abit. Play around with smaller doses until your comfortable “letting go”, but after that, the sky is the limit.

Actually scratch that, there are no limits from there ;)

@lamekillers, Take 2.5grams if it is your first time, 3.5 if not. 20 bucks worth each basically, depending on where you live. So yes, $50 is enough.

if you know they’re good shrooms and its your first time tripping, i recommend sharing an eighth with your friend.
also, be sure to balance your giggles and fun times with some serious contemplation. i’ve found that I’ve tripped far too many times where my and friends and i spent too much time giggling the whole trip away. not that its a bad thing, but i feel as if though i missed out on all the profoundness that shrooms can bring to a person.

@lamekillers, Just remember, you are NOT living on a ‘truman show’ set and reality isn’t just made for your life and the entertainment of other conscious life forms. Or are you..

oh and also, not sure how experienced you are with this kind of stuff, but take them on an empty stomach, it’ll be much more intense. and don’t eat dairy while tripping, it totally combats the shrooms. have a good time :)

We did roughly half an eighth my first time and we were outside which I strongly suggest.
I also suggest being where you are going to trip before you start tripping.
stay calm & have things you can do, but no doubt you shall be entertained by anything.
happpy travels & for real if anything is making you feel weird, do something else, just like life stick to things that make you happy

Hey thanks everyone!! All of your advice was of extreme help. I decided to do them all by myself and underwent an extraordinary trip that skyrocketed both my mental barriers and physical sensations, not to mention the breathtaking lucid images I beheld!
