I’m used to nasty tasting herbs like kava and kratom and wormwood so I’m not worried about the taste. What I would REALLY like to know also is how do they compare to an intense weed trip? Are they similar? I’ve heard some people say that weed makes them trip harder then shrooms.

I ate 2-3 stems when I was a kid because my older brother wouldn’t let me have the caps. I remember watching the Simpsons and the colors of the cartoon characters got insanely trippy looking and I felt some euphoria but I definitely didn’t ‘trip’. it was still kind of neat though.

Mate it depends on the dose. Mine were cultivated and eaten fresh. There's no way of accurately telling what the strength of an individual shroom is. Second flush ones are a lot stronger than the first.
You can best be careful coz put it this way, people who take a really high dose normally never do it ever again. Me included.

Understated really. You'll see.

I wouldn't do it. I have done them twice, first time was fun but the second time I had a really bad trip and ended up sending myself to rehab. I don't really think it resets your mind like they say either or mine would be better. I have been reading about Ayahuasca being able to do that but I am skeptical of that too. The main reason I wanted to go do it was you get to play with sloths.

I took a gram of Penis Envy Cubensis strain last night to help with my depression. I've done them a lot in the past. Today's headache is extremely awful and my depression is worse. I ended up flushing all the rest and will not do them again. I do smoke marijuana and I even feel that I need to give that up if I want my Bi-polar to get better. Best thing you can do is talk to your doctor about how you are feeling and be honest about what drugs you use recreation-ally. Medications can have complications with other drugs like alcohol, caffeine, marijuana, etc.

Yeah my psychiatrist told me to quit coffee because when they test panic attacks they give patients caffeine to trigger them. I drink tea still but less panic attacks now.

Yeah I'm trying to wean off caffeine. Definitely can be anxiety-inducing.

Don't do mushrooms. It messes your brain up...trust me...don't take them anymore. You'll make your problems worse and create new ones. I think taking mushrooms played a part in me sliding into psychosis and later schitzoaffective disorder.
