    In many situations that will be too much. It really depends on the Mushrooms.

    If they're cubes, 3.5g dried is a low to moderate dose. It should be enough to trip for a first timer, no doubt about that, but personally, I would need about 5g to enjoy dried cubes. Luckily, I have a wide choice when it comes to getting shrooms, and cubes are just about the weakest that are sold here.

    Enjoy anyway.

    An eighth is more than enough for a good trip, and like MrJim said,
    an eighth will probably be way too intense for a first time... my own first
    shroom experience was about 2.4g, and I'll tell you this - it was plenty
    strong (they were cubensis).

    Best to stick to around 2g at first.

    I have to agree, that for a first timer 3.5grams may be a little bit too much.I suggest you take2grams then take the rest an hour or so later you will still get the full effects of the mushrooms but won't have quite as intense a peak. Remember you can always take more, not less.

    2.5 grams dried is a full trip. 3.5 grams is a strong trip.

    My first shrooms experience was with 3.5 grams and it was way too much. Maybe the shrooms were just really strong, but My friends and I took 3.5 grams and it destroyed them. I would recommend 2.5 - 3 grams for your first trip.

    Everyone is different, in how 'strong' it is, and how they handle it.



    The first time I did mushroom, was the first time for 3 other people
    aswell. We had gotten the exact same mush, (bought in bulk and split 3
    ways), and all did the exact same ammount. All of us were around the
    same size/weight/height/whatever.



    Now, I know potency can vary from shroom to shroom, so 1g of one mush may be stronger than 1g from another..but whatev's.



    We all munch down a bunch. My 3 friends were tripping bawls and got too
    intense for them, I was tripping harder then them from what I can
    gather (I seem to be affected by mushrooms /really/ strongly, small
    doses send me to the moon and back). They were freaked out, I was
    LOVING it.

    So i think it's a strong dose the guy gonna have a mistical trip perhaps! But i think that the first experience must be at a high level to really appreciate the true nature of the mushroom. 3.5gr is a high dosage but not a big big dosage if the guy is with people who can to guide him

    I think erowids doses are about right. 3.5 grams of good shrooms will make for a hell of a trip.

    I agree, if you have normal quality and potent mushrooms, erowid doses are about right I think,

    My first shroom trip was cubensis and I took 1,75g dried and had a very
    good first experience, very euphoric and very strange. we were with the
    3 of us just walking through the city, smoking some pot and were very
    euphoric, I recomend the same doses to everybody in our group who's
    having his first trip so I also recomend it to you, you can always take
    more the second time if you like it

    better safe than sorry

    Yeah, I think keeping the dose fairly low for your first trip is a good idea.
    I don't know how many trip reports I've read about people taking large
    amounts for their first time and freaking out and being scared away from
    them.

    In time, and with a little experimenting, everyone will develop their own
    personal 'dosage chart' as they will find their personal preferences on
    shroom dosage.

    3.5 was my first trip and i would recomend it, though make sure you are mentally preapered, it also depends what you are looking forI has experienced from 1.8g to 14g (dried) and they all have worked, if your willing to take the strai i would say yes take 3.5 but if ytour at all unsure go less

    It differs hugley, butwith shrooms i think the first dose should be full, so they experience a proper full on trip.


    with most other drugs i'd recommed a low dose and build up gradually, with shrooms, 3.5 is what i'd recommend. (again is rough estimate and shrooms are (for me) predictably unpredictable.


    Also if you don't feel right for any reason, it's best to wait, espescially if over anxious, or depressed ,ect. Edited by: bonghed

    Yeah, I can tell you firsthand that tripping while in the middle of any
    kind of emotional stress or whatever isn't really the best idea... any
    emotion you're experiencing (sad, worried, whatever) will be amplified.
    And once you start thinking about your "problem", you'll obsess over it
    to an annoying degree. Makes you want to bang your head into a wall
    or something.
