    Next week I'll be having my next trip, both me and my freind who's also
    tripping that night are both pretty experienced with shrooms (having
    both had up to 60g)



    We're going to be ordering 50g each, each time in the past we have
    always eaten them raw, but we both have trouple actually getting them
    down at first and it takes us ages to actually eat the first few, I was
    wondering if it would be better to make a shake with about 20g of them
    to ingest instantly then eat the rest raw (for some reason, once we're
    tripping we never have trouble eating them, and will both just throw a
    whole shroom in our mouths and chew it for a while, strange considering
    mushrooms or any sort make me gag at the best of times!)



    But my question is, will it make the trip stronger in any was by
    ingesting a larger amount in a much shorter time, for example taking
    20g in 5-10 minutes as apose to about an hour, or will this just make
    the trip come on faster?

    If you eat them all at once the peak will be much stronger but at the same time you'll come down quicker. The trip will come on quicker if you have the mushies well ground up before you injest them (or if you keep them in your mouth for as long as possible)


    I'd probably eat half of them wait untill i start coming on and then slowly chew on the rest over the rest of the day, it'll make the trip last much longer, just personal taste i suppose.

    Thats pretty much what I figured, I want the peak to be more intense
    than I've had before, and as long as it lasts a good 8 hours I'd be
    happy so I might just have to eat a whole bunch of them at once.



    I'll certainly leave some to eat while tripping to extend it but I want
    to be off the intense part well before it finishes anyway, we'll be
    going from my mates house to mine about 2/3 of the way through the trip
    and I dont really want to be in public while on the most intense part
    (thankfully its a fairly short and quite walk but we want to make the
    most of it and maybe sit around on a feild for a while)



    Now all I have to do is figure out how to eat that many in a short
    period of time, we've tried tea before but it made us both feel sick
    and we just couldn't stomach it, the best thing we came up with is
    pulling the toffee off of a twix bar, wedging a shroom in there,
    sticking the toffee on and eating, not too nice and not fast enough!

    If i were you i'd dry them slowly to make them small as possible (and less squelchy) you'll find them much easier to take. Don't listen to what people say about losing potency, if you dry them slowly over a couple of days out ofdirect light the loss will be minimal. You can just chuck them in your mouth, chew once or twice and swallow- easy peasy.


    You could make an extract but i've never done one before, maybe someone else can shed some light on the subject? Otherwise just use the search function, its amazing what a wealth of information this site contains.

    We can't really, the day they come is the day we trip so I'll only have an hour or two to prepare them.

    iggy is right about the grinding up and how the buzz hits. Several times they came on fast when ate the shake and died fast. When i eat them whole, man do they set me on a nice movie level. Especially horror movies lol. Just eat them raw man caps and all *cheers

    Get those nasty monther fuckers on a chopping board,dice em up throw them in a beer and just down it, works a treat. Big fast gulps work best you don't taste anything. Just don't let them sit in the drink too long it'll taste rotten.

    I never get fresh ones so i always eat them dry. Though i never have liked normal mushrooms with any food or anything i like eating these. Just cause i know they'll make me trip i enjoy chewing and swallowing them, plus the taste is def. not that bad its easily tolerable.

    I've always found that chewing creates a more predictable onset. If I eat them whole the come on seems more at the whim of whatever else is in my stomach.


    My strategy is to find a flavorful beverage - I use cranberry juice because the bitterness has a neutralizing factor - and chew them in your cheek while the juice or whatever is also in your mouth.

    I too find getting them down really difficult - my trick is to have Mulligatawny (beef curry) soup. Chop the dried shrooms really finely, heat the soup, stir the chopped shrooms in, and eat.The beef curry completely overwhelms the (rancid) taste of the shrooms. Dead easy, and you can get large quantities down in 5 minutes or so.[​IMG]

    I still go for shroom koolaid, just throw them in a pot of boiling water brought down to a simmer and mash them around, soon the water will become dark with spores, then strain out the shroomsand add sugar and koolaid mix into the hot spore water allow to cool and chug it down. You can also eat the boiled shrooms or allow them to cool/dry and boil them again, it woulnt be as potent as the first batch but you will still get something off it.

    Isnt the boiling water hot enough to decrease the potency of the mushrooms? I know that heat kills some of the potentsy of the mushrooms.

    As long as you're not boiling them for a really, really long time the
    potency shouldn't be affected noticably... psilocin breaks down a LOT
    faster than psilocybin will, so a lot of it depends on what kind of
    mushroom and the ratio of psilocin to psilocybin it contains (P.
    cyanescens probably will lose more strength when boiled compared to P.
    cubensis, for example).

    I still prefer to throw them in the blender with ice and grape juice
    concentrate... makes a nice magic smoothie. Come-up is really
    fast and strong this way too, only takes 10-15 minutes for me to start
    feeling them this way. I guess it all depends on personal
    preference though.

    Don't know about anyone else, but every time I take them it seems
    grosser, and therefore harder to eat them (even when the taste is
    disguised).

    Some people report the body can lose tolerance over time to the taste. The more often you take them, the harder it becomes each time. There are reports of people who could swallow rotten fish but eventually wretch at the smell of mushrooms. There are stories about light chewing of dried mushrooms and stuffing them in one's cheek until the whole amount is in there. After 10-20 minutes in the cheek, it's all swallowed and a ride on the WoW express follows. However, this may have an effect on the stomach - vomitting will end the ride and waste a good time. Blending in juice or alcohol extractions reduce potency (unless the mass is eaten) but also may reduce nausea.


    What to do about fresh stuff? Some people are adamant about avoiding heat. Other people say cutting and dicing a fresh one is bad because good stuff oxidizes quickly. However, in theory a person could use a bowl with water, alcohol, or juice and cut the fresh stuff under a liquid layer. This would probably prevent any oxidizing. The problem might be that, as many people know, dried stuff and probably fresh stuff should not soak in liquid very long because they absorb it rapidly and grow into big soft icky icky things that some people may become nauseas at just by viewing.
