Home Experiment With Psilocybe Mexicana (truffles raw)
I just wanted to share my own findings to everyone:
I'm mentally healthy, never had any panic attacks or depression. I'm doing very well at work and at home. Iíve been using alcohol for 10 years (just occasionally, low dosages). Iím not a big fan of alcohol because I hate hangovers and one time when I was younger I drank way too much and vomited through the whole night. I use cannabis occasionally, I usually smoke just a little bit, to get small buzz (for relaxing purposes). Iíve had interest to try these magic mushrooms for longer time and yesterday I finally had good time to do it (legal in my country).
I read basically everything I could find about mushrooms before using them. I prepared myself very well: I had sitter with me, light snacks (avocado, yogurt and something like that), orange juice for bad trips, I ate like procedure said, I had nothing to do and 2 rest days after my trip. My main object through the whole day was to inspect that what they really do for me and what is the difference between magic mushrooms, cannabis, and ethanol. I first tried not to eat at all but I felt shitty because my blood sugar was so low.
I first tried not to eat at all but I felt shitty because my blood sugar was so low.
After eating just a bit I felt great and then I was ready for the mushrooms (note: I still waited 2 hours before ingesting the truffles).
I started my experiment a few days earlier, I scrubbed part of truffle against my skin to make sure Iím not super allergic for them. My skin was a bit reddish but not itchy afterwards. Then I ate a VERY small part of it to check changes in my mouth/throat. I was OK so I ate 1-1,5grams (raw truffles) to make sure Iím not that sensitive for psilocin.
So I was very curious about effects and I made diary that I used during my ďtripĒ. I marked physical and mental changes on it and asked my sitter many times if he can notice something changing (it was quite funny, I will come to this later).
Here is my diary (notice that it doesnít make any sense after ingesting 10g raw truffles) I will use *-mark for the things I wrote afterwards:
16:30, I just ate 5grams of raw truffles. It tastes like old wood and there is a small after taste which is quite unique.
17:00 No changes.
17:30 I feel a bit different. This is hard to describe. I was expecting to be more confused but I actually feel quite normal. I went to my sitter and asked if Iím normal and he said ďI think so yesĒ.
18:00 I ate 5grams more because I didnít notice that much. My legs are a bit cold and I feel a bit different but nothing serious.
*After 45 minutes of ingesting last 5g, I went to my sitter 7-8 times to explain how I feel and that Iím still normal (this is when I started to trip).*
18:50 I went to my sitter and said that I feel normal and Iím not confused or anything. No visuals.
19:00 I went to balcony for cigarette. Lights were a bit bright (not much). My pupils are bigger than normally.
19:10 I feel a lot different than after ethanol/cannabis. Somehow my view of the surroundings is different, the surroundings are also changing with me. When Iím writing these sentences and then reading them afterwards, they feel funny. I think these writings are not normal. I really know what Iím writing but when I read it itís not normal. I can notice things that I write, like I would be so-called ďsoberĒ.
*these things were so clear and bright for me but it was so hard to describe them on paper*
21:00 first the time was going slowly *especially when I went to my sitter and mentioned to him that Iím normal. I was there every few minutes but it felt like a reaaaally long time*, but now it is going so fast. Food didnít taste good. Peeing was normal.
22:00 I start to come down I think.
Aftermath: I was so curious about the trip before ingesting the mushrooms, so I think I spent most of the time measuring reality and myself. Iím glad that I took just the right dosage. I felt great through the whole time. I had slight nausea after ingesting 10grams of raw truffles but it went away after 10minutes. I didnít feel bad at all. My own jokes were very funny from time to time. I tried to watch TV but it was very hard to follow it. I noticed things that I wouldnít normally notice.
I think my dosage was perfect. If Iím doing this again, I will try to eat them a little bit to get visuals.
