    I think he knows a friend who might be gettinga few oz ofboomers in, and they plan on tripping quite frequently. how often should they space out their trip so their is absolutely no tolerance build up to provide for the most intense trippossible for that amount of boomers. they are going to trip at a park and hike in the wood, chill, and put head phones on!!!

    Tolerance is only supposed to last a few days, but if I trip one day, and then trip the next week (on a similar dose), I find that I still will get a very weak trip (I only trip once a month, or less). So I would recommend at least every other weekend (the longer you space it, the better it will be), or increasing dosage since it sounds like you may not want to wait that long.

    thats what I was going to do, two wks inbt trips; but then i was thinking, most tryptamines leave your system relatively (cannabis) quickly; leading me to think the celerity of the chemical to detoxify would dictate the tolerance, but prior personal knowledge has lead me to believe otherwise.

    SWIM here has tripped more then once in a week, but he did relize that the first time 1.5grams did it for him, and then the second time he needed an 1/8th (3.5g's) to equal the first trip.. through his personal experience if you trip once a week you should be ok but again everyone's body is different and the way to find out is to test it yourself

    Shroom tolerance goes up quickly and down quickly. If you take 3 grams
    one night and want to trip the next night youll have to double your
    dose just to feel the same effects as the day before. eg 6 grams will
    only feel like 3 grams but all you got to do is wait like 5 days min
    and your good

    Trust me, you'll never forget your first trip [​IMG]



    Tolerance also depends on the individual... if I do shrooms 2
    weekends in a row, the second time is very diminished (unless SWIM
    increases dosage). 2 weeks apart produces no tolerance.
    However, SWIM prefers to trip no more than every month-2 months or so
    to preserve the novelty of the experience. If you do any
    psychadelic too often, it will become less enjoyable... the bad
    attributes (anxiety, etc) will become more prominent and shadow the
    good.

    Wait only 3-4 days for optimal or you can just do it the next day the tolerance doesnt go up as quickly as it goes down in SWIM opinion

    i'm not sure what exactly caused it, but from the first time i did
    shrooms, the quality of the trip had steadily declined till now, and
    recently, an 1/8 hardly does anything for me other then increased
    peripheral perception, lights being more interesting, and some
    strange/unusual thought patterns. i had been doing them quite
    frequently at a point, bout an 1/8 a day, but even when i started that
    the effects weren't very noticable. recalling that i'd been doing
    LSA throughout the weekend prior to the day i started that binge, i
    figured that i might have a slight tolerance to tryptamines, but alas,
    4 days later, still minimal effects, took me an 1/4 of dried that night
    to get to the point where i could say i was "tripping" though
    hardly. a week after that, i tried them again with more
    pronounced effects, but still nothing like i'd attained from an 1/8
    before. i guess that it could be that i grow a pretty fast
    tolerance to them and that it takes a while to lose it for me.
    i've heard it taking only a matter of a couple days to lose a tolerance
    for somepeople, but as i'm sure you all know, different people react
    differently to drugs. i'm gonna try again in about a month or so
    and see how it effects me then.

    By way of comparison: a lot of psychoactive medicines have effect or build tolerance during 28 days. With Shrooms it is considered the same. Even though there will be a minimal difference between the effects of magic mushrooms taken 27 days or 28 days after the last trip and every body is different, I consider this the minimal time between trips if you want to have full effect of your magic mushrooms. Please note that there is cross tolerance between lsd, mushrooms and some other psychedelics with act on the 2a serotonine receptors.

    According to Joanthan Ott (Pharmacotheon) there is supposed to be cross tolerance between LSd, mescaline and psilocybin (as they act on the same receptor sites) but not with DMT.


    I recall that 7 to 10 days is the minimum time to lose tolerance, but as Alfa says a month or so would be better.

    does that cross tolerate mescaline or all psychedelicphenylthymines, mainly the 2c-family?

    Interesting question! It would seem likely that the phenylthymines would be cross-tolerant.

    basically, if I was planning a five day road-tryp and wanted to trip every-otherday, what would be the best order to taketryptamines and/or phenylthymines for acheiving maximum affects of the psychoactive. bc i don't know the length of time that passes in thefilm, Fear & Loathing but it seems that his sunshine and his mescaline would have tolerance problems, and Depp looks pretty trippin' the whole time

    To my annoyance, I have discovered that tolerance to shrooms builds
    very quickly. It's always been difficult to assess the correct dosage
    in a given situation and now, with one "portion" (usually 20gs fresh of
    p.cubensis or 10gs of Hawaiians/Copelandia Cyanenscens) not really
    allowing a full blown "what the hell is going on" type of trip, it's
    getting even harder.



    I was just wondering how much stronger you make shrooms by boiling them
    and what kind of effect it would have on the dosage you would take?
    Also how long should they be boiled for and are there any other
    preparation requirements.



    How do you "dry" shrooms exactly and what effect does this have?



    Sorry if this has been posted before and thanks in advance

    I hear that you should wait 2 weeks between trips to have the same tolorance.

    A tip for a very heavy experience: Boiling mushrooms for 2 minutes, then put your cup with shrooms soup in icecold water for 30 secondsand drinking the liquid while it is still very hot, will blast you into other dimensions. Be sure to have a sitter with you as you may pass out instantly. (stove still on and such) Boiling magic mushrooms much longer will degrade the alkaloid content by destroying the active substances in the magic mushrooms. Heating and then cooling mushrooms down again only makes them weaker. Edited by: Alfa

    yeah, I noticed the same. had a fantastic first trip about a year ago - tried the same amount the night after, and virtually nothing happened!! Tolerance develops REALLY quickly, but the good thing is that if you give it about 2 or 3 weeks, your tolerance goes back to previous levels.

    once i did shrooms eveyr weekend for about 10 weeks. they generally
    worked, althoguh it was a pretty weak trip a few times and i noticed
    that i started to get a really nasty feeling on the comedown. not
    nauseous but you feel like your body is doing eveyrhting it can to piss
    you off and expel shit from inside you. lots of cramping and feeling
    tense. also sweating and feeling really dirty and a shitty bloated
    gaseous feeling. after this happened on the comedown a few times in a
    row i cut back and did them again about a month later. shit went fine
    and i had fun.
