    I know that there are many similarities between shrooms and acid, but have gathered that mescaline is quite different and more dreamy than both of these. He hasn't tried it yet but is planning to do so soon. But what is your opinion on the matter, if it was a free choice, which of the three would be your selection and why?

    swim prefers mescaline to acid and shrooms.when I took it didnt feel like he was on a drug ( not that their was no effect.lol ) .....it just felt so natural and easy.I got a beautiful clean euphoria and mild visual distortions..... nothing crazy but thats because I had a smallish dose. I could still interact with people and could do stuff he wouldnt be able to do on acid or shrooms.with swim loves mescaline and cannot wait to do it again!!!and like I say to everone about mescaline.....it should be taken out in nature.

    SWIM's also tried all three but acid is his favourite. Don't get him wrong, mescaline is a beautiful free-and-easy experience but SWIM prefers the intensity and unpredictability of acid. Mescaline feels like a mood-boosting mild psychedelic whereas acid can bring you places you might never have imagined. I amn't sure whether he prefers shrooms or mescaline. They're quite different in that shrooms are a lot more like acid and the trip lasts shorter, then again one can remain nearly fully functional on mescaline so the length of the trip isn't much of an issue.

    Going by mes experiences I wouldn'T say you're fully functional on mescaline. Your reflexes and depth perception are hindered considerably. I would discourage anyone from going on with their regular daily lives that include driving or anything else that could easily be dangerous to others. Also, your pupils are dialated quite a bit so people WILL suspect you are on something.

    I think that one good reason is the law.

    San Pedro and Peruvian Torch are legal in many countries. For example in Denmark where I live, San Pedro and Peruvian Torch are legal, even in dried form. Peyote is illegal in dried from but legal as a plant.

    It is always good to trip and not having to worry about the police.

    I would characterize the shroom experience as profound, while characterizing the cactus experience as beautiful. Swim thinks both are fantastic and each have their unique advantages depending on what situation you're going to be in. They're both amazing and if I was forced to choose one over the other he might lean towards mescaline.

    Swim describes LSD and Mushrooms like being strapped to the front of a speeding train and casey jones is high on blow. Your along for the ride which may or may not be pleasant.

    Swim describes mescaline and other phenethylamines as driving a convertable sports car. the thoughts and insight are profound but ultimately your in control. You can hit the brakes and pull off to the side of the road for a rest if you need too

    One must take note that really high dosses of mescaline can produce states much more like mushrooms and lsd . you need about 700 mg of mescaline to achieve a state similar to 5+ grams of p. cubensis.

    Overall mescaline is more coherant and pleasant . Mushrooms are somwhere in the middle. lsd is just a total mind melter with visual chaos that could swallow you into another world which you can't see out of.

    If forced to choose a favorite, it would be a very strong contender because of its comfort factor.

    Mescaline is like bathing in good feelings,
    mushrooms is more like right after turning the shower off,
    and acid is like standing there wet while chewing on a 9-volt.

    But they all have their uses.

    In SWIM's opinion, mescaline has too much of a stimulant effect and can make everything feel better while tripping, but LSD and mushrooms seem to say what one needs to hear, with shrooms being the least guidable experience.. LSD, depending on the person and dose will allow one to think about whatever he/she chooses, but shrooms kind of sit one down and make one listen... Mescaline is probably the most euphrioc but not sure if that is such a great thing when working on the innerself..

    For SWIM's lab hamster LSD can sometimes be too overwhelming, while Mescaline is a wonderful, wonderful thing to enjoy, SWIM's hamster can get it on with the missus....HOWEVER, shrooms are just perfect....there are wonderous visuals (at a good 3g+) and sex is enhanced, plus there is a viagra-like effect from the mushrooms.

    So, if SWIM's hamster was alone, it would probably be a nice dose of mescaline

    BUT if the hamster's missus was partaking as well, shrooms it is, plus the missus has female ejaculations while on mushrooms (grin), something she never has any other time, sober or intoxicated.

    I guess it just depends on the setting, at least that is what the hamster acted out to me through sharades.
