    To some degree yes, to some degree no. Its like saying an apple (acid) is like a mango (mushrooms)because theyare bothfruit, and not carbohydrates (stimulants) or meat (downers). But they are still fairly different at intricate level of hallucinogenic experience. Generally I find LSD trips to be more visual/perceptual, whereas on mushrooms I feel more tripped out. High doses of either substance can be very intense, although I would say high does acid is moreso (but this is pretty subjective); alsol, I generally find a medium dose acid trip more enjoyable than the equivalent mushroom trip.

    I heard that 2 grams of good mushrooms is about the same as one hit of good acid. Is this true?

    Can i ask how u got this number? just wondering sense LSD is chemical (right?) and mushies are natural. the active ingredients are completly different and therefor it will effect you different... idk j/w how the number was obtained?

    I found a hit of lsd (blotter) to be far more potent than 2 grams of dried cubensis.

    Muirner: LSD and psylocibin are both tryptamines and rather related. Thus it should be easy to make a potency comparison. That said i have no idea how he came up with that number or what the correct number would be.

    no ammount of shrooms will ever give you the 'same effects' as acid cause its not the same,just stating the obvious

    apples and oranges.



    you cant compare the two. They produce completely different trips.



    Last week i took 3 hits of acid and felt barely anything. Ive also tripped balls off of 1 hit.

    Same goes for shrooms. The strongest trip i ever had from shrooms was on 2.5 grams. I've also eaten up to 7 grams.\



    The only similarity between the 2 is that they both make you trip.

    the only possible way you could compare them would be comparing
    psyclobin to LSD, both being tryptamines. perhaps xxmg of psyclobin
    could be comparable to xxug of LSD, but this is very variable per
    mushroom and per hit of acid and almost impossible to know by the
    common user.

    I disagree with you guys on one thing, LSD and shrooms to me are VERY similiar substances. Similiar enough for one to easily be a substitute for the other.

    they are close the halltionations are very similir but the head trips are quite diffreent..when im on mushrooms...it seems really intense at times..but acid im jus totally gone and fucked up...on lsd i hear lots of voices and i can even think words and a big loud voice in my head will say them...i have found that mushrooms teach me life lessons..help me face my fear and issuess. where aicd helps you create your own reality. first you need to clear up your life (mushrooms) then expand your mind into different dementions (lsd)


    thats jus what my experince has been

    they are two completely different drugs and cannot really be compared.

    I've yet to get my hands on acid (though not for lack of trying), but I
    would expect not. Aside from the fact that they are two different
    substances, from what i've experienced of shrooms that wouldn't be
    enough to cause a comparably intense trip to acid.

    One good hit of acid is definatly way better then 2g of shrooms, 2g is auctally a small amount in SWIM's book he thinks 3.5-4.5g would be more equal to a good hit of cid

    The fact that they're both tryptamines doesn't mean tehy're comparable. I mean, even melatonin is a tryptamine; that doesn't mean the effects will be similar. The two molecules are really nothing alike, as you can see here:
