I've been managing to have closed eye hallucinations on demand lately. I don't know which drug, but they've been fun. Almost on the level of a fully conscious dream.

Kinda funny idea, I guess. But the connection is very tenuous at best. Maybe this is supposed to be some kind of satire on historical academics a lá the exhibits at the Museum of Jurassic Technology or other such fabrications.

These aren't psilocybes, but Amanitas. Different chemistry altogether. These make one large and small. They grow in fair profusion on the plain, but their aficionados lived in the mountains, so they were pricey there. The drug is excreted in urine, so passing the cup was a common practice the morning after.

//some of these
//have a fair amount of GI toxicity

Having a bad shroom experience, I won't do it. Ever again.

But, I won't stop people form trying, just get someone nice to guide you on your trip. Also, you might wanna check this out, it's pretty cool.

We just identified one of the random mushrooms in our garden as potentially hallucinogenic, its shape, habit, spore print, etc., all point to it being a member of Psilocybe, so I'm getting a trippy kick.

I haven't and won't actually eat it of course.

I accidently ate a large amanita mushroom once, communication error with a mycologist. It was waaay different from the psilocybes. More like a flying kind of trip. Also I was trying to read a paper, and where I would look at a word, empty newsprint would appear instead.

Abilify is what the kids are taking to stop tripping nowadays, we just used plain ol' tricyclics back in the seventies. Sometimes, paradoxically, a little more psilocybin bumps one out of the dark space. This drug has an inverted U curve in terms of dose/response fun times, which is a little better than the sharp-knee of many of the newer synthetics.

I've heard of this before, supposedly a bunch of Christmas traditions were based on these mushrooms. Hanging stockings by the fireplace, the first stockings were supposedly filled with these mushrooms to dry.

Some psilocybes have a fair amount of baeocystin, those are the ones where god is ragging on you on the way up. If you like this effect, choose Cuba B+, if you don't, try and find some ovoideocystidiatas.

Not really toxicity, but do cause stomach upset (it's the ibotenic acid, which is filtered out in the urine). I smoked an extract of it once, and it was pretty cool, you feel about 40 stories tall

I just came here to point out that if you want to trip mushrooms, DO NOT GO WITH AMANITA MUSCARIA, you will probably not have a great time. Find a connection to a guy with some psilocybes, or buy some spores online and grow your own (my favorites are called philosophers stones)

try Golden Teacher. I think you will like - easy to grow, and when brewed, the tea is not gag-inducing like some others.

But my guide said it was difficult to discriminate the different types. I remember seeing the classic red ones, and morphologically similar yellow ones.

Awesome! I will look into acquiring those spores. Also, as opposed to making tea, I steep the mushies in hot water for awhile like I'm making tea, but instead of adding teabags to get rid of the taste I add a few packs of instant hot cocoa mix. I find it gets rid of the nasty flavor much better than tea.

I'll bet you had sore stomach muscles the next morning from out of control laughing fits.

I remember one time at band camp we were shrooming and there was this one obese chick with VERY red hair and a VERY purple outfit. When she was out of the room, some referenced Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory blueberry girl and we all (About 8 of us)started laughing hysterically until it hurt. She never knew why we were laughing for what seemed like 30 minutes straight.
