    Without food will give you more effect and less naussea, but I prefer with food as this gives me more energy in my trip and during activities.

    Fast for 6 hours before eating mushrooms. What do you need energy for during a mushroom trip??? They are not meant to be a party drug. The fasting will allow your stomach to work 100% on the mushrooms, and give you the best possible high that you can have.

    Without food, chance of nausea is highly increased but with food it can take a lot longer for the effects to start (up to an hour and a half)

    Iprefer to fast before eating them. However, food slows down the absorbtion rate, which will help with nausea. It is a motion sickness that occurs. Your trip comes on so fast that your body cannot adjust to the diference. Sometimes food doesnt help tho, and now there is something in there to come back up. Generally, the nausea passes when you near peak. Its a preferance thing. Go with whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

    i find that if you're already hungry for a meal, eat alight one, with shrooms mixed in. my theory is that your body gets digesting right away and that helps the trip, while giving you the energy to go out exploring. my favourite drug

    Full Stomach and Eating

    I ate half a pizza and then ate 1.7g of some gold caps. Its been a little under 2 hours and no effect yet. Could it take longer?

    1.7g isn't a huge dose or anything but considering gold caps are meant to be strong (never tried them myself) most people probably would feel some effect. Usually when I do shrooms I feel effects within an hour of consumption but on the odd occasion it could take longer. Once I had dried philosopher's stones in tea and they took hours and hours to kick in.

    Well I know they are good because my friend took 1.5g the other day and tripped for 4 hours.

    Then I have a tolerance as well as a fully belly. I need to wait at least a week between expeditions.

    Yeah, you're not going to feel that much. Back when I was still new to
    shrooms, I ate a few pieces of pizza and an hour later an eighth of cubensis.
    Not only did the trip take forever to come on, but it never reached its full
    potential (more of a body buzz than anything). Not eating for 5 hours or
    so before tripping helps. And not doing them too often... even when
    waiting 7 days, there was still noticable potency loss.

    Mushrooms on an empty stomach or full stomach?

    So I am eating caps tonight and never really thought about this before when eating them. Would it be better for SWIM to eat them on a full stomach or an empty stomach? He is looking for a way to intensify his trip because he feels that he just hasn't been getting the same bang for his buck that he used to be. Thanks for the help, SWIM really appreciates it.

    Re: Mushrooms on an empty stomach or full stomach?

    If one is trying to get most out of the trip an empty stomach for sure...this leaves less room for the psiloc(yb)in to "hide" in.

    The come up will also be much quicker than on a full stomach.

    In addition one may think about pulverizing the shrooms or something similar in order to break it down more and free the actives.

    Empty stomach, every time.
    Simply put - you're less prone to nausea that way.

    I find that taking it on a full stomach causes more intense nausea, and a less intense (but longer) trip. SWIM normally suggests that people take them on an empty stomach.

    Empty stomach causes more of the alkaloids to be absorbed faster, for an overall stronger experience. I think nausea in this respect varies from person to person.

    I don't care about nausea, it's a small price to pay for the trip. :p
