The night began by a group of my friends wanting to try shrooms. Where I come from, they're pretty hard to find, and I had recently aquired a contact. We purchased 14 grams (1/2 oz) of dried 'Thailand' shrooms. I have experimented with dried Psilocybin Mushrooms 6 times before this, and I must say, these were the most gnarly looking caps and shrooms I've ever seen. Darker in tint, the caps were a more dark brown than red. From here on out, is a description (best remembered) of the most mind-bending trip I've ever been on!
7:30pm - I just bought the shrooms, and immediately consumed 2grams of the dried shrooms.
7:45pm - I'm pulling up to my friend's house, and am amazed to find that the typical anxiety feeling had kicked in so fast. I had eaten maybe 1 hour and 25 minutes before hand. Upon walking into my friends room, I find that they had gone to a local store and bought 8 boxes of Nitrous cartridges (containing 50 each). They had also bought a gram (as had I) of some Purple Haze (lovely bud!), and my friend Chris had brought over a 12 pack of beer. I would like to point out, that my friends had NO IDEA I had taken 2 grams of shrooms already.
8:00pm - Sitting in the computer chair, listening to Tool. I had just rolled a blunt. I started noticing things (best put). I would find myself stopping mid-thought or mid-conversation, and looking away completely distracted. We proceeded to smoke the blunt, which helped me relax and take my mind off the shrooms I had ate a little while ago. Immediately following the blunt, we started going at it with the Nitrous balloons. The NoS was insane. It was only my 2nd time doing Nitrous, and hadn't had much experience in Dissasociatives in general. I would compare the come up of NoS to that of Salvia for me. It was distinct, the feeling could be best described as this: My human body was a shell, and God was pouring liquid heaven into my body. The more filled I got, the higher I felt. I remember a high pitch sound getting higher and higher pitched as well, with the higher I got! The feeling of the NoS (although short lasting) while on shrooms was AMAZING!!
9:00pm - I was now tripping, really hard I might add. I remember everything seemed sort of slow. When turning my head to look at others, I would see trails of blurriness. Walls looked to be moving. Mild hallucinations, common to a medium dosage shroom trip. I remember getting nauseous from time to time, and sometimes even disgruntled thought. I seem to be able to better my high while on shrooms, simply by realising 'Hey, why am I in this shitty mood? It's just the drugs!'. I instantly am in a better mindsetting. Tool's CD was coming to an end...I changed the music somehow. I found it kinda hard to walk. I would stop midway of going somewhere, and completely forget what my purpose was. At this point, my friends asked me if I was ok, which I followed up with: 'Yeah man, I'm just ready to try some of those shrooms'. LOL so we sat down and all munched down another 1.5 grams.
9:15pm - Oh my goodness. Can it be? I quickly realised that with each passing minute, my mental state was becoming harder and harder to maintain. My thoughts were extremely deep, and I was completely clear headed. Any ego I had was broken away. I made the assumption that the 2nd batch of shrooms I had taken was just starting to kick in, and by 9:20pm I was seriously trippin.
9:30pm - My brain was believing anything it heard or saw. My mind was fooling itself, and running 1000 miles a minute. We continued to do Nitrous balloons. Everyone was agreeing that it was the most intense feeling they had ever had. While doing balloons (balloons had 4-6 cartridges in them each), it felt as if a still-frame picture had been taken of what my eyes were seeing. As my head would fall back uncontrollably in the chair, the still picture would go back with me, creating almost a layered look (think of a baseball coming towards you on a poster. the layered affect of it). As if that wasn't enough, whatever sound was being produced while the still-frame was taken, it would just repeat. A 1 second clip just repeating, repeating, repeating...then *SNAP* I would be coming back to reality...
10:00pm - Somehow I had finished 2 beers, and was laying on a bed cluttered with people. It felt like I was still peeking from the Shrooms. They just never stopped. I would say though, that around this time was the hardest part of the trip. Thoughts of me never being sobre crossed my mind. The idea that I had permanently fried my brain on drugs, that I was lost forever. I remember at one point being able to think NOTHING but the line 'Im just on drugs...Im just on drugs...'. Also around this time, was the point where I lost all concept of time. I know this might be hard to understand, but time did not exist. It was as if I was on another plain of existence where I looked at everything around me, time went around me. I was time. This feeling lasted for a good 3 minutes, and I must say that although it was a complete mind-screw, it wasn't unnerving at all.
11:00pm - We had been laying on the bed for quite a while, listening to music, having deep conversations, tripping out heavily, and having the most fun together we possibly had ever had. There was a point when we noticed that our moods had gone sour. We were all more quiet than normal, some people were tripping 'too' hard for comfort. My friend's g/f eventually noticed that the music had stopped. We turned the music back on, and instantly our moods were lifted!
11:15pm - I was finally able to grasb the idea of 'Wow, I think I might be coming down?!'
11:30pm - Definite signs of coming down. Visuals had mostly stopped, and I just felt really dumb. Almost like a pure indicia kush would do to me. Couch lock to the MAX! Although, like the shrooms coming, the come down seemed to be the same.
12:15am - I was pretty much sober at this point, and left my comrades (some were still tripping pretty hard evidently).
I would like to just say, that many times during this trip, I compared it to a prior LSD trip I had. It surprised me how easily my mind fell to these particular 'Thailand' shrooms. My brain was believing things that my logical mind would NEVER normally believe! It was as if someone was taking the wires of my brain, and switching them all over the place.
