12:26 am - First time poster.

acidburn96
Hello, I've just joined this community and was hoping for some help I guess. I'm going to be taking mushrooms soon for the second time. The first time I took them I didn't fully trip but still got cool visuals. But this time I plan on eating more this time and want to be prepared for this. I read that people will read philosophical writings or watch/read about natural sciences or any other mind broadening subject. I was hoping that someone might have some suggestions on some that could help or be useful.

12:40 pm - Ginger

crowinsnow
Has anybody tried ginger to reduce the stomach distress from mushrooms? It works for some people for seasickness and nausea, but not everybody. I'm particularly fond of crystallized ginger to settle my stomach.

"We have gone sick by following a path of untrammeled rationalism, male dominance, attention to the visible surface of things, practicality, and bottomlineism.

We have gone very, very sick.

And the body politic, like any body when it feels itself to be sick, it begins to produce antibodies or strategies for over coming the condition of dis-ease.

The 20th century is an enormous effort at self-healing. Phenomenon as diverse as surrealism, body piercing, psychedelic drug use, sexual permissiveness, jazz, experimental dance, rave culture, tattooing. The list is endless.

What do all these things have in common?

They represent various styles of rejection of linear values.

The society is trying to cure itself by an archaic revival. By a reversion to arachaic values.

When I see people manifesting sexual ambiguity, or scarifying themselves, or showing a lot of flesh, or dancing to synopicated music, or getting loaded, or violating ordinary cannons of sexual behavior, I applaud all of this.

Because it’s an impulse to return to what is felt by the body.

What is authentic.

What is archaic.

When you tease apart these archaic impulses at the very center of all these impulses is the desire to return to a world of magical empowerment of feeling.

At the center of that impulse is the shaman. Stoned. Intoxicated on plants. Speaking with the spirit helpers. Dancing in the moonlight. Vivifying and evoking a world of conscious living mystery. That's what the world is.

The world is not an unsolved problem for scientists or sociologists.

The world is a living mystery.

Our birth, our death, our being in the moment. These are mysteries. They are doorways, opening on to unimaginable vistas of self-exploration, empowerment, and hope for the human enterprise.

Our culture has killed that. Taken it away from us. Made us consumers of shoddy products and shoddier ideals. We have to get away from that. And the way to get away from it is by a return to the authentic experience of the body. And that means sexually empowering ourselves. And it means getting loaded. Exploring the mind as a tool for personal and social transformation.

The hour is late. The clock is ticking.

We will be judged very harshly if we fumble the ball. We are the inheritors of millions and millions of years of successfully lived lives and successful adaptations to changing conditions in the natural world. Now that challenge passes to us: the living.

That the yet to be born may have a place to put their feet and a sky to walk under. That is what the psychedelic experience is about. Is caring for, empowering, and building a future that honors the past, honors the planet, honors the power of the human imagination.

There is nothing as powerful and as capable of transforming itself and the planet as the human imagination.

Let's not sell it straight. Lets not whore ourselves to nit wit ideologies.

Lets not give our control over to the least among us.

Rather, claim your place in the sun and go forward into the light.

The tools are there.

The path is known.

You simply have to turn your back on a culture that has gone sterile and dead and get with the program of a living world and an reempowerment of the imagination."

12:09 pm - Shrooms and mental illness

nebslie
My girlfriend wants to do mushrooms for the first time soon, and we were thinking possibly this weekend. I'm now a bit concerned because I remember reading that you should avoid drugs like psilocybin or LSD if you have a family history of severe mental illness, which my girlfriend does. There's no schizophrenia in her family or anything, but her mother was severely bipolar and just plain crazy. I never met the mother because she killed herself 4 years ago. My girlfriend doesn't exhibit any symptoms, but her mother's illness only started when she was around 40 years old. My girlfriend is 26.

Any comments? Has anyone had any personal experience with something like this?

Shrooming right now... since 3am :)

Thoughts through my head-

Me and my friend just sat in the hot tub for 2 hours, because we could. It was amazing.

jesus!

I tried to type, but seriously, i'm in my own world. I now remember why I love this fungus, and why this entry was as pointless as I thought it would be. But i'm posting anyways.

2:07 pm - Ohio sucks for hunting

kickme
Are magic mushrooms really that rare in nature?

I've taken walks and found shrooms, even in a potted plant at my work, but none of them seem like they would have any toxins in them. All over the internet are pictures and discriptions on what to look for in a shroom, but most species can be found similar to a non-poisonious type. I guess spore prints could make all the difference, but what the hell, is it that hard to find shrooms outside?

Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places/seasons, but has anyone ever found any in Ohio...and where/when would they be growing. WTF Do I have to go to a poo pasture?

9:21 am - Non-cubie Psilocybin's

jackscheetz
Psilocybe azurescens

These mushrooms, known as P. azurescens (blue meanies, velvet angels) are the most potent Psilocybin mushrooms in the world. Commonly, Psilocybes will bruise blue when they are handled. These however, bruise purplish-black. Probably from the massive amounts of Psilocin reacting with oxygen.

Panealous Cyanescens
Not noted to be particularly strong, however users on Pan Cyans have reported "creative dreamlike" experiences while on the mushrooms. I've never tried these, but I've heard they shrivle up after you dry them. These are NOT the kind of shrooms you buy, these are a collector's mushroom (and a rare one at that)

Liberty Caps
When the "Psilocybe Craze" hit america, this mushroom had hundreds of people digging through cow shit in the Northwestern US. These are very easy to identify, and are stronger than cubies.

Psilocybe mexicana
Psilocybe mexicana strain A is noted for its exceptional sclerotia forming abilities but it can be fruited under controlled conditions. Substrate is [rye]grass seed cased with sterile peat and calcium carbonate in a 4:1 ratio. Fruiting temperature is 75-78F with good air exchange. Quite potent, a good taste too, I've heard.

Psilocybe samuiensis

i cant really take mushrooms anymore i realized.. i took them liek 8 times in my life.. and the past couple times i had bad trips.. and i feel if i take them again i wil get another bad trip.. im scared to take them now.. :| i probly will get a bad trip because im scared of having one if i try taking them again.. i think one of the reasons i had bad trips is because hte last couple of times i took them i felt lik ei had to be the dominant and in control one.. there was one other person taking them with me and they had never done it before.. i took an 8th and i was at the beach .. and i felt so uncomfortable..i got the fear and eventually i started crying and i made myself puke.. i didnt feel liberated like i did those other times.. but my friend was having the time of her life
the other time i took an eighth with another friend at her house.. we went to the park where there were a lot of kids playing and i felt uncomfortable and i got the "fear" again.. so i left to go back to her house.. and on the way.. her neighbor stopped to talk with us.. and i started sweating bulets.. and her neighbor wouldnt go away!! i was so scared and i felt like my friend sounded so fucked up on drugs while talking to him that i was afraid he will do something about it.. like call the cops or.. tell her parents .. and her parents would tell my parents and then my parents would send me to rehab..i thought... well her neighbor stopped talking to her.. and i ran back to the house and sat on the couch and the rest of my trip was horrible...i just felt scared for no reason at all even if we were safe in the house with no one home.. :| that was also like.. last october..
