If They Lied About Pot and Shrooms What Else

First time I tried shrooms was in June 1988, 1 gram. Watched the movie Highlander at a friends house, and only remember laughing when some guy's head was cut off, and the blue light came out of the tv, bounced off the wall and landed on the floor. Was 27.

Fast forward to 2012. Older and have aches and pains :) But have discovered marijuana, and have been using it 5-10+ times a day to control pain. Decide to order 14g shrooms on a whim. Try 0.5g dry, and end up with the most exquisite abdominal pain of all time. It felt like twirling razor blades in my GI tract. Curled up in a foetal position for the whole night, my mind would not stop thinking. This is not what I want.

For some reason, I kept taking mushrooms, and kept increasing the dose.

I've only worked my way up to 5g, but I tried them 40-60 times in 2012 (growing them myself now). Slowly through multiple trips the stomach pain diminished, and I was able to benefit from the drug.


- No food for ~20 hours (most times consumed on Friday nights).
- from 2.0-4.0g dried commercial or dried homegrown.
- I've peaked at 2 hours, plateau until 5, and am almost baseline at 6.
- once a week, if on holidays up to 4 times a week.
- chewed dry, with beer, lemon juice or anything else that masks the taste.

How does it affect me?

15=30+ minutes I feel a low level anxiety

25-55+ minutes it starts to feel as if God is giving my shoulders a massage; I find it to be a body high like a really good Indica at this point.

30-70+ minutes. This massagey feeling works its way up to the base of my skull, and now I would say it departs from weed for me.

60-240 minutes. I start to 'see' transient visual disturbances almost like pieces of transparent paper falling through the air. These OEV's can get quite elaborate; once I perceived clockwise rotating green roses circling around counter-clockwise rotating white skulls. And these were seen in fractal type images making up my perceptual field. CEV's range from simple geometric patterns to full fledged video and audio. On a 5g dose, I heard audio distortions that I think I might experience on 4-HO-DiPT.

180-420 minutes. The comedown seems to be fretful. I still experience stomach distress when I switch strains (about once every 4 weeks). At this point I can be frozen in place for hours, almost unable to do anything. Here also, hunger starts to play a part; I've been fasting for ~24 hours and smoking pot for a while. Almost as soon as I eat I'm at baseline.

for 2-3 days post consumption I feel tops; normal after that.
