    Jatelka EDIT: Please note that this is a combined thread, and the earlier posts are from a time before the "No self incrimnation" rule came into play

    SWIM dropped four hits of some acid on Monday night and was so out of
    it that he didn't know he was in the world anymore. Nothing was
    recognizable and Pink Floyd was inside his brain.



    Thursday night he repeated the experiment and had a very mild trip.
    Lasted about six hours, the ground moved some, trees breathed a bit,
    etc. I'm assuming this is tolerance from Monday and not an uneven
    distribution of acid on the sheet. Is this a safe assumption?



    Can anyone fill me in on how long someone should wait between acid trips to not have tolerance? I would be very appreciative.

    Was it the same cid that you took on monday? I've done cid for many days in a row in the past, sometimes weeks in a row. For me, when I take it every day then I have to keep upping my dose for good effects, but if I do it like once a month then every time it feels the same. I'm guessing everybody's different when it comes to psychedelics though.

    Yes, it was the same acid. He's done two hits of it, three hits of it,
    and four hits of it twice. These last two trips were both four hits
    although the second one felt more like 1.5 hits.

    Yes its tolerance.
    Builds up quite fast with LSD. Wait a week or two and it should be ok again, taking it now is a waste.

    Looks as if 2 weeks is the consensus opinion. That was the time period I settled on as well. Anything less than this and the effects were milder. I can't imagine the amount you'd have to take if consumed on daily basis to get the same effect. I always like to have some time to digest the experience anyway.

    If I were to take a hit of acid, and when it kicked in, I decided it
    wasn't as strong as I wanted, could I take another without any
    tolerance?

    I'd wait a couple of hours after taking the 1st one(even if you think you've peaked)before doing a 2nd. It's pretty scary if you take too much acid on your first go so you need to make sure it's kicked in fully before taking more

    Avoiding tolerance to LSD

    I've heard that tolerance for acid could be developed fairly quickly. I've done LSD 4 times so far; how often should I be taking it to avoid tolerance?

    Tolerance builds up rather quickly if you use LSD quite often. If you do it two nights in a row, the second night won't be nearly as good. If you get in the habit of doing it every weekend, the visualisations don't become as intense anymore. I only do acid once every few months just like Es. It's the only way to fully enjoy them everytime you do them.

    Tolerance ... or Re-dosing?


    While you are tripping away on LSD (or any of the psychedelic RCs) you can take some more of it. This re-dosing will either (1) Blast you off into a higher state, or (2) Just extend the trip.


    The different effects occur because of either the timing (boosting after the peak), the amount of the first dose, the amount of the second dose, or my emotional tiredness at that point in the trip.


    The word "tolerance" refers (mostly, anyway) to taking a second trip shortly after finishing a first trip (hours, or days, later).You took a trip on Monday (good for you); now, if you take another trip on Tuesday, you will HAVE TO take more of it, in order to have a trip of equal intensity.


    It is my feeling on the matter, that my brain gets tired (because it has been operating in an unusual -- and energetic --manner during a trip). Then, if a second trip comes too early, it is still recovering from the excitement. So, it wants a BIG blast, to help it ignore its tiredness, and get back into behaving in that unusual manner.

    Tolerance, you be the judge.


    Tolerance is, getting a more subdued trip. Life is what it is. If you're used to a high intensity level ... with tolerance, it is a medium-high intensity level.


    If you have tripped 4 times, you have a body of experience in which to base each trip. If you (now knowing what it feels like), have a trip which is somewhat different, you can wonder the reason for that different experience (tiredness, bad hair day, ...).


    If you realize that you just tripped a couple days before, this may explain that difference. Life is NOT just one-thing-is-the-whole-answer. But trust your instincts: I had a Great trip yesterday, maybe I'll wait another couple days before I rocket-off again. (Quality over quantity.)


    On the other hand, it might be a good thing to try two closely-spaced trips (after all, this life is just one, BIG experiment anyway). I have done this myself in my spiritual journey (and now I have the answer, for my own life: If I trip on Friday, wait until Monday).


    So, you can purposely take it in an interim where tolerance MAY occur. Then, while zooming along, you can be mindful of the fact that this can happen, so that when it does, you will be able to label it: Tolerance. Now you know. Good.Edited by: Solidly-here

    From what I have heard and read, LSD tolerances fades extremely quickly
    as well. I've heard that it nearly completely goes away in just 2-3
    days.

    My quick time, aftertrip tolerance is about 7 days with 3 more days
    feeling it weekly. After 2 weeks I start with the same effects on the
    same dose. after 7 still week residues.

    But there is also a long term tolerance that I developed over the
    years. But it is not just for Acid, also for mushrooms & other
    psychedelics (only Tryptamines).

    LSD tolerance is generally built up every time you use it, lasting approx. 3 days. I find that even after 3 days, It's not quite gone. I give it about a week or two at least.There are also cross tolerances between tryptamines, so remember that. I am not sure about tryptamines causing phenethylamine tolerance or vise versa, though I believe that they don't. Either way, these tolerances will always happen every time you trip.

    It depends. I have heard a person doing it every other day for a year with no problem of tolerence. If done the day after it usually takes a double dose for the same effects (approximately). Also, there is cross tolerance to mushrooms and mescaline and probably many RCs.

    I find consecutive day tripping forces you to double your dose each day. As in, 2, then 4, then 7-8, etc.



    I kid you not. Last summer, My friends and I would eat whole
    ten-strips by the end of the week! Good stuff too...

    LSD: Is it worth it?? Tolerance a problem?

    Ive only done good LSD one time before and that was Sunday night around
    midnight (2 hits). Would it be a waste of good acid to try and
    trip again tonight at about midnight.(tuesday) This is only gonna be my
    2nd time, will it be possilble or will I have to wait for another few
    days. Responses soon would be apprecitated.

    I think you would still feel the acid and have a trip (definitely not
    as strong as before) but you get something. But in my experience (and
    in my life) I wouldn't do it, since it is not the same. You will
    definitely feel the tolerance and it will not be as magic as it was
    maybe before. If you have bad luck just kind of a stoned feeling.



    Other thing is, that you normaly should keep some time between trips.
    It might be not as important with the first trips as it is with later
    (deeper) experiences...but there are several things which need time to
    settle, that you might not be aware of at the moment.



    I recommend to wait. Not necessarily and absolutely but as an advise...

    Wait at least one week for your tolerance to wear off. The old scale, and still valuable, is that tolerance lasts 10 times the duration of the drug. 12 hours X 10 =?


    So wait a week. Then you will not be wasting your precious molecules.

    IMO you have to land first, before you take of again. You may think the effects are over as the trip has ended, but subtle after effects of acid can be noted a few weeks there after. I'd say wait at least 3 weeks, before you stir your soul again.
