    For a light trip, "Mushrooms, like anything else grown, vary in potency. There are different varieties of mushrooms with different potency and potency varies mushroom to mushroom. However, your ~2 g of mushrooms would generally be considered a light dose. They don't taste good. Many people like to make peanut butter and mushroom sandwiches to help hide the taste. It's rare to feel nauseous but some people do. You'll feel the effects sooner if you chew them well and suck on them in your mouth. Otherwise expect first effects approximately 30 minutes after ingestion.

    Given the low dose, typically you'll have a body high with the feeling of your limbs being heavy. Breathing will slow and become more shallow. You'll feel slow in thought and action. Laughing will come easy. You may notice tightness in facial/jaw muscles. You're face will probably be flush and your pupils will dilate. You may notice tingling in your skin or you may feel wave sensations as if you were in water.

    You may or may not fully hallucinate depending on the strength of the mushrooms. Colors may become more vivid with splashes of color or shapes in your peripheral vision. You may see geometric patterns superimposed over objects which may or may not move (like a kaleidoscope).

    Effects will usually last about 4-6 hours.

    A more intense trip may include some or many of the following effects:


    * mood lift, euphoria

    * increased giggling and laughing

    * creative, philosophical or deep thinking : ideas flow more easily

    * boring tasks or entertainment can become more interesting or funny

    * sensation of insight

    * life-changing spiritual experience

    * intense feelings of wonder

    * paradoxical feeling of a normalcy and deep alteration of psyche

    * may interrupt cluster sequences in those suffering from cluster headaches [ Cluster Headache Treatment ]


    * feeling more emotionally sensitive

    * general change in consciousness (as with many psychoactives)

    * time perception alteration [ Wittmann 2006 ]

    * time seems to pass more slowly (minutes seem to take hours)

    * sensitivity to light; lights seem brighter

    * starring and rainbow patterns around pinpoint lights

    * increased detection of motion in peripheral vision

    * open and closed-eye visuals (common at medium or stronger dose)

    * sleepiness, lethargy

    * pupil dilation

    * sensation of energy or buzzing in the nevous system/peripheral limbs

    * memories come to life


    * intense feelings of fear

    * headache, usually as effects wear off, sometimes beginning the next day, lasting for up to 24 hours

    * nausea, gas, gastrointestinal discomfort, especially when mushrooms are eaten raw and/or dry

    * mild to severe anxiety

    * dizziness, confusion

    * lightheadedness or fainting (in cases of lowered blood pressure)

    * can precipitate or exacerbate latent or existing mental disorders

    * working memory disruption (reduced ability to do tasks requiring current remembering and attention) [ Wittmann 2006 ]

    With mushrooms, there's much less looping of ideas and extra visuals and many times audio hallucinations. Acid has a tendency to be more potent, however this is not regularly the case. Also, mushrooms have a tendency to provide you a mild quantity of manipulate over the commute. Acid in most cases does now not. Overall, I'd say your threat of a foul commute is better with acid nevertheless it would occur with both so watch out with that stuff

    STOP before you do damage. There is a thing called HPPD. It can cause peripheral hallucinations, and can cause panic attacks, and anxiety attacks.
