does anyone know if you can eat shrooms through out the day and shroom from morning til night?
i've been wanting to try it but don't know if it would be a waste or not.

you can do it, but it is a waste.
the trick is, you must increase the dose each time to offset your increasing tolerance.
so if you eat 3 grams at 10 am, you'll need 5-6 grams again at 3 pm then prolly about 9-10 grams at 9 pm, etc. just to maintain the buzz.

from experience, it can work =) let me tell youa little story, relax im bored as hell, Me and 3 buddies had 2 ozs of mushrooms, 1/2-3/4 ounce of pot and alot of money to buy beer with, so we decided to go on a adventure. I live on an island so we caught the ferry and before the ferry we did alot of mush each. Now heres the thing, we had no idea where we were goin... we hopped in the car, and got on the ferry. we were pretty high till about 4am, we caught the 9pm ferry... and we made it to someplace outside of kamloops. We all smoked a fat joint and went to bed, the next morning we waited till about 12pm, after gettin a hotel in kamloops to do more, we did about 1/8 and a half then went on a walk thru town, not a huge trip but it was fun, at around 4 we went back to the motel, hotel, whatev and ate more, at this time we bought 100 bucks worth of beer too.. fun stuff... we all ate another 1/8th or 2.. then when everyone was leaving me and my buddy went back and ate another 1/8... then we went to dinner, big mistake, being in a restaraunt high as fuck... ahh so after dinner we went back to our room and drank our beer, and finished off the mushroom and went for an emmence hike all around kamloops... so you can be high all day, we were high from 12pm that second day till 3am that night... it was wierd... super fun... but i thought id share my adventure this summer that I had.. cant wait for round 2 =)

hey, I can relate

This past summer my sweetie and I(and a friend who loves my shrooms) went for a daywalk with our three children and my daughter's friend. We three adults made up some shroom tea(which is really, really fucken good) and drank it down, and took sandwich material and water in a backpack, and off to the uncharted hills we went. I was so high after five minutes I felt like I was in a different world, and in the ensuing hour as we climbed the plateau I became ever higher. We had many an adventure in exploration before we got to the top, under a picturesque cliff amid old, thick gambel oaks and made lunch. I was so high I could force down only a half-sandwich, but everyone else ate heartily, and then, we allowed the children to play at the top of the cliff for an hour, playing their pretend tragedy games and keeping my nerves frayed to their fullest extent the whole time... Scary yet dominantly supervised, of course; no casualties.
Then we set off, at an hour past noon, for further adventure. I drank a quart of water off at a draught every time I drank from the jug. Ultimately we ran short of water, subsisting on the last 2 litres toward the end of the day. But we carried our gear and supplies off up the southern slope of these mountains present here, several miles, and with light rain and warm wind in our hair near a wild strawberry patch which the children devoured, I suggested another dose. Of course, I had a baggie of shrooms just in case, and we adults partook of another dose there in that canyon, and Bam! In moments, off we went to explore the upper reaches of the plateau. I climbed the hill with mushroom rushes hitting me in waves. After 2 hours or so, we ate another couple doses each, and wound up finishing off the stash somewhere up there. Suffice it to say that a waste(---it may have been, if you're counting grams.) But! Shrooms only last in the body's system for just so long, right? So, in a good day, you either need to consume 20 grams dry per person, or you'll find you need more as time goes by. So yes, you'll go thru a lot of shrooms in a day, but if you keep eating them every hour or so, you can keep the high going.

Another epic tale, from 1986, is in order. We were given some 'magic tea' by the mushroom people, and there were five of us. I think they must have put a couple ounces of shrooms in that tea, because within five minutes, we were all on the brink of losing our minds to a bad trip, so powerful it was. But we had no other dose all day, and the trip lasted 12 hours, long for cubensis. I will never forget that day; I came to know God and lichen and friends in ways that every person should, made archeological discoveries, and cemented friendships that day, and I'll always remember that summer when we drank the magic tea when I was 16. I could relate many details, Like the Ancient Carved bone I found in a crevice, and the emerald green pond, and the snow in June we made a snowball fight of, but I fear I will bore you...

Sounds like the guy that told the officer
he was driving DUI
because he couldn't walk LOL
Sonds like you had a good trip PUN.
I made some pot brownies one time and took them to a football game.
It was cool wandering around with security all over.....
munching on a brownie.
Still don't know who won that game.
Wound up in front of the stadium partying with some folks till 1am the next morning.
And it was a noon game too.

I love those marathon trips; and who cares about being a little wasteful...

that's why we do what we do, right? what's the point of growin' if you can't enjoy yourself?

God, I love shrooms


PS. Yeah, I know. I don't grow either...

By Mjshroomer (Mjshroomer) on Saturday, December 01, 2001 - 07:36 pm: The Nook

Well someone who wants to eat shrooms as you stated above in your post shows a desire for drug abuse.

Below is a letter of someone who thought he could do this all the time every day.

I removed the name to protect the guilty and my response is posted below this letter I recveived in the email:


Hey. I live in Seattle and stumbled into the
cyanesence trip. The first was > really good. I ate a bunch. The next day I ate a bunch more. And it made me sleepy yet irratable. That night I made tea with a bunch more and I tried to
go to Larries market to get milk but I couldnt feel my feet and I started walking like a quadrplegic person until I almost fell over. It was like I lost my motor skills and I was getting paralized from the waist down my joints lost their reziliance or something. I sat down and massaged my legs and they started working normal again. When I got home I couldnt turn the key in the lock my hand was shaking too much and it was like I had arthritus. Lukily I had my neighbor open the door for me. I went in and just
stayed in bed.
Only the first time I had them did I have a
psycodelic trip I probably ate a big hand full with a few more and it was nice it was like a lots of laughs different from the ones in Hawaii I found that were more spiritual natural
expierence. But I guess that is all in my head.

But I know that the physical side affects were real it was not in my head. Do you know what is up with that? I have always had a clear pure without side effects to my body respect towards the spirit within the realm.

Sincerly your brother,

Here below is my response to this person and I would say the same to you.


My Response:

Dear ------,

First off this is a sign of drug abuse. you need to wait a week or more before doing this a second time and never large amounts of cyanesncens. Any of the 180 species will cause muscular dicoordination when taken in excessive and abusive dosages.

Do not abuse these shrooms. This has happened to many individuals who feel they need to be high every day.

A week to two weeks apart and you can take them for years but if you continue a daily dosage than sooner or later you will not get off at all. This is what happens when they are used over and over during a short period of several years, the effects will disappear. Even Andrew Weil warned people of this back int he late 1960s and ealy to middle 1970s.

You have over dosed yourself and that is what happens when you abuse the mushrooms.

First off, One large Psilocybe cyanescens is a common dosage somewhat comparable to a Mazatec Indian Ceremonial Dosage.

Three four or five one inch size shrooms are equally as potent.

The fact that you have thaken them three days in a row means that you depleated your serotinine level.

Straighten out your mental situation and take a few weeks apart between highs or even a month . Because if you continue you might get respiratoty problems, and/or die or eventually you will not even get off.

This is what occurs from abuse.

So not misuse the mushrooms and the mushrooms will not misuse you.

i think that they meant more or less just eating a bunch in one day to keep the trip going, not necessarily to eat them every day

By Lichen (Lichen) on Saturday, December 01, 2001 - 08:38 pm: The Nook

not to be arguementative, but there is another side to this coin.
I abuse my drugs, admittedly. Many of us do, and I'm an extremist. Last summer I ate shrooms every day for a couple months, high all the time, until my mood changed and I no longer enjoyed it and wanted a change. Oh, there were times when I'd take a day or two off, maybe more, but for the most part I was able to eat them whenever I wanted and get off every time. I ate them while at work every day, too. Extreme, perhaps, maybe even stupid and irresponsible, but that's just how it is.
Now, these were cubensis, and I don't know about any other species, so I can't speak to that.
Anyway, for sure cubies won't kill you

By Underground_Shaman (Shaman) on Saturday, December 01, 2001 - 09:20 pm: The Nook

Abusive personalities will abuse almost anything...
Shrooms are self-limiting by their nature. There is no documented physical addiction.

Trips are best spread apart by a week or two, but when the fiesta is rollin', by god so am I.

For me, a binge like this is a once in awhile brain needs a rest afterwards.

Not everyone should use shrooms. Not everyone should use them everyday. Let every man choose for himself. We can only guide.


By jim brown (Shrhobbyist) on Saturday, December 01, 2001 - 09:41 pm: The Nook

If you have the right time and place and enough shrooms, all day trips can be great. That is how I almost always do it. Make sure you have the next day free, though.

By Nan (Nanook) on Tuesday, December 25, 2001 - 10:42 pm: The Nook

Cactus is the stuff for all day trips... Single dose :)

By Brad (Raze) on Saturday, December 29, 2001 - 06:12 am: The Nook

yeah but you cant grow that in a month now can ya?

By Nan (Nanook) on Saturday, December 29, 2001 - 06:40 am: The Nook

No you certianly cannot... But if you don't start growing some cactus at some point it's moot. And compared to shrooms, there is like zero maintanence required to grow cactus once you get them settled into pots.

By plinkerdink420 (Plinkerdink420) on Saturday, December 29, 2001 - 06:58 pm: The Nook

inspiration..... i think i may have to do just that very soon... mmmmmmm cactus...

By Liberty_Caps (Liberty_Caps) on Monday, December 31, 2001 - 01:39 am: The Nook

I wish my grampa would have done that for me!

Took 2.7 grams of shrooms last night, very nice trip.

Thinking of tripping again tonight.

How big should the dose be to achieve same effect?

By plinkerdink420 (Plinkerdink420) on Saturday, January 19, 2002 - 12:37 am: The Nook

i would think double, but not exactly sure... whenever i have tried tripping the very next day, no matter how much i ate, i never felt as good as the first night

By JackTripper (Jacktripper) on Saturday, January 19, 2002 - 01:03 am: The Nook

Tripping out is weird. I could trip once a week and the experiance will be good. I find the longer I wait between trips the better it is. Like trip on shrooms once a month and the experiance leaves you feeling great better than if you used shrooms more reguraly. Take some time and think about the trip you just previously took. I feel the magic is better when its dont infrequently.
