I took 4 grams and was messed, but not lost. 2 hits of acid brought me an experience ive never duplicated and lasted all of 3 or so seconds. Hard to tell, but quite memorable; not a 'trip' hallucination. Im gonna keep upping my dose 2 grams every so often and see what my limit is. This is just a time waster post i guess.

Hey.. I'm doing the same experiment. Wait a month, do more. 5g dry next time. I took notes last time. When I have time I'll transcribe and post them. They actually make sense.. which clearly means I neeeded to do more.

Hey do we need a separate topic to chat about this kind of experimentation? I couldn't give a hoot about different grow methods, I get all I need with simple PF & casing.

i had 6g. never again, i won't say it was a bad trip, i just don't want to be that out of it. i was actually glad when i could see again. the cathedral i was in with people doing things on their own and talking and asking me to stay and give up my life was way too much for me. i haven't dosed in about 2 months.

lots of luck, and i can't wait to hear about it.

P.S. please be careful :)

6 Grams and I was pretty messed up! But I was still "here" if you know what I mean. I gave a friend of mine about 4 grams, maybe, and he was way gone, right around Neptune I think. I want to go there, I hear that it is nice this time of year. I haven't dosed in three weeks, but the next time I do it is going to be around 8 grams, see where that takes me.

I tried 12grams of dried PF once. Never been so F*CKED up in my life. I didnt lose it but came very close. Had terrible stomach,liver, kidney cramps for about a week. The worst part was the explosive diarrhea that followed for about a week. Was worth the experience but wouldnt do it again.

does anyone know anyone who's lost sanity from a trip? I thought i might go insane on one acid trip as did my tripmates but we didnt. how do those people end up like pumpkins?

I've taken as much as 9 grams.. 3 grams, another 3 grams a little later, and then another 3 grams. I could barely move, just barely able to see, and ended up passing out (it was really late, i was tired and i couldn't help it :]). I'll stick with 3 grams.

I havent fond my limit yet ive dont about 4 grams so far. I havent fond my limit on acid eather and i have done 12 hits of acid and would gladly do it agin as long as i have a muscial relaxer for the come down. I could hardly move cause my muscial where so tence. Im glad shrooms dont have the bad come down. Im saving up for halloween and im going to try a 1/2oz of shrooms that should take me out there nicely.

I dropped about 400 Mc's of 2 day old liquid acid in 1984. I ate four little barrels of Mesc. once, in or around 1990. I ate at least 8 grams of dry shrooms one time in HIGHschool. These were all fun journeys BUT--- Once, in 86' I ate no more than 4g. dry shrooms that left me puking and crying in a roadside ditch for over 4 hours. They may have been contaminated or I might not have been right. Moral--- Be very careful. Finding your limits, at any givin moment, might be scary so bring a designated driver.

Thanks, Herb! Great information! Now, apparently Paul Staments says the following:

"1-2 grams of mushrooms dried with a desiccant is recommended for first timers. This is equivalent to only 10-20 mg of psylocibin, and will be, for most people, a dose with moderate effects. The symptoms will last, in most cases, no more than 4-5 hours.

"2 grams (dried) will bring on the first colorful geometric patterns, and lead to noticeable changes in auditory perception.

"At 3 grams (dried) and above, some people will experience visual waves. The wave phenomenon is especially interesting - it is as if the air were actually in a liquid state and tidal movements flow in from the distance, distorting the scenery as they project towards or away from you.

"At 4 grams (dried) and above, the experience becomes more intense, lasting 4-5 hours

"At 5 grams (dried), the experience can be nearly overwhelming and span 6 hours, but rarely longer.

"Once you have become a veteran and feel comfortable with a given dose, the amount of mushrooms can be increased in single dried - gram increments, again using P. semilanceata as the standard. Over time, each individual will come to understand his or her personal psylometric scale of sensitivity.

"Even for the most experienced, I do not recommend doses above 7 dried grams. At these higher levels, the set and setting must be especially supportive and safe. At higher doses, some people report a loss of muscular control and strength that can persist into the following day. I have heard this from individuals ingesting Psylocybe azurescens, psylocybe cyanescens, and panaeolus subbalteatus. No plausible explanation has been put forth."

Unfortunately, he uses P. semilanceata as the standard. What I would love for my reference is some good info on experiences with P. Cubensis at varying doses of the cracker-dry suff, taken on a relatively empty stomach. Anyone who has ever done P. Cubensis and measured out the dose should be able to provide me with some info. I want to compile the responses into some readily digestible information for the appendix on the instructions.

Ok, you know how after eating mushrooms you build up a temporary resistancy? Like if I ate a gram today it would take 2 tomorrow to get the same effect? Well what I want to know is how long it takes to clear from your system. Like I'm definately doing about 2 grams on monday night, and then on saturday after we get back from skiing my friends and I are gonna trip. I'm assuming after 6 days 2 grams would still have almost the same effect, am I right?
Now sat I'm not too worried about, my other 5 cakes should be harvestable by then. But for new years I'll only have like 5 grams or so (my one friend is getting some off me) so I can up my dossage that night.
Now on to the point of this long babbling, if I were to eat a gram of aborts tonight (I'm all antsy and want to try these things out) would I have to bump my dosage on monday?

Thanks for any comments (hell, thanks just for reading this nearly pointless thread :P)

No one? Is 3 days enough?

By relic (Relic) on Sunday, December 30, 2001 - 02:30 am:

i've always considered 3 days inbetween to be the minimum wait time. 5-7 is better. you may want to up the usual dose slightly if it's only been 3 days in between.

Well, I ended up splitting a gram of aborts with a friend tonight. We were plastered, I just impulsively took em out and started munchin. I think it was an even split. Hard to say if I felt anything.... Alcohol + Pot + Shrooms + Salvia = mass confusion
