study finds shrooms make your mind work better

Recommended Posts

Seriously

 

Stumbled across this interesting article checking the spelling for word association, I think you can buy spore syringes, I'll have to look into it :)

Psilocybin works against depression, I can say from personal experience. A couple years ago, there was a study confirming this.

 

I don't know about Canada but spores are legally shipped in the states except to California, Idaho, and Georgia. Sporeworks.com used to be good and they ship to Canada. I haven't kept up with the forums.

 

I was going to use PFtek but I think I'll do bulk technique instead.

Thanks Ledfoot, that site looks good, they even have a pick and mix special on at the moment :) I've all ready got my cart half full.

 

Appreciate the offer Karma, this looks pretty simple witch means I've probably missed something so I'll likely need some advice.

 

The first question is how much difference do different strains make, are the type of highs as diverse as different strains of weed?

 

Found a video that covers the whole process step by step, It's well presented and dude seems to know what he's talking about.

 

Time to dig out the credit card I guess :) Who knew playing word association could start a whole new hobby :D

it's THAT simple thats why im professional haha

 

number one rule is: the whole tools and working environment needs to be sterile/ultra clean!

 

i have a simple box to let the mycelium grow.

 

all u need is a styroporbox with a lid a thermometer with a cable for in and out temperature, an aquarium heater in a small waterbath and something to build a floor where the glasses are standing on (like a metal plate or something)

 

in terms of the high: friends describe one strain with rather visual effects and the other with more of a body effect...for me hm i don't know...mushrooms (cubensis) are mushrooms. real differences i only feel when i compare hawaians to cubensis...the trip and the outcome of effects are depending on the set and setting. there are strains that are more powerful (i.e. b+) than the other (i.e. mckennaii) but thats it (at least for me)

 

mushroom growing is fun!! u can see them growin actually. in the morning u have kind of a lollipop and in the evening u have fully developed nice mushroom :)

around here I could and should head to forest to find some Psilocybe semilanceata. They are more hardcore than cubensis shrooms that's for sure but they're still nice. Maybe a bit too much of a bodyload for my liking.

We used to eat these every year and I've done them hundreds of times but somehow I don't feel like dropping acid or shrooms anymore don't know why maybe I should just do it. Always right after it hits you'r like "aaaww yeeaa thank god I took it and I wish it would hit me harder"

 

When some hippie finds out how to make my grow media bust out shrooms while I'm growing my weeds then I will start growing them too :)

I used to pick Liberty Caps years ago and was growing B+ using pf Tek and also Rye grain, up until last year. I used them to break depressive episodes in myself and gave them to someone with Cluster headaches to treat that too. They don't work on me anymore as their actions on 5-ht2 receptors are blocked by some of my prescribed meds. I'm waiting on a reply from a psychologist who specialises in the use of psychedelics (James Fadiman) currently, i've asked whether I might still be able to get results from microdosing, despite the other medication I take.

 

Anyway growing them is fun and after seeing this thread i'm in the mood to start cultivating them again. Thanks Opengrowers.

Liberty Caps (Psilocybe semilanceata) are abundant where I live, and its almost time for the mushroom season to kick in :D

 

I usually take a trip or two every year to clear out the cobwebs... it's worked wayyy better for me than anything big pharma can synthesize in a lab.

 

I used to take ssri's for depression but they lost their effectiveness over time... then I realized that a shroom trip might be just the right medicine. At that point I found out the meds I took blocked the receptors in my brain rendering a real trip impossible. It took me 6 months to slowly ween myself off my meds, and as I quickly discovered, the withdrawals from ssri's are very uncomfortable.

 

The detox period sucked, and it took almost a year before I started feeling like me again. To make a long story short, I started growing (again), took a few much needed magic mushroom trips (again), started riding my bike (again) and have felt better ever since.

 

My personal prescription for moderate depression in most individuals would be a light dose of psilocybin... worked wonders for me.

I have taken them in the past enjoyed smaller amounts better becuse potency can vary noticed almost every time I ate them old memories from when I was 5 years old and stuff would just surface good things I would have never thought of otherwise

 

It is really weird especially when it starts to kick in and than you feel sober for a bit and the high comes back stronger every time u feel it kind of go away

 

I don't recommend doing this but the most fun I've had from taking them was eating a very stong single gram in the morning with a small apple and going on a safe bike ride started to feel really weird at one point going down a long small hill with a beautiful view the best way I can describe it is that everything felt like the way water flows in a river and kind of looked like it too started to zone out leave what we know as earth for a bit

 

Was so much fun after that I started riding my bike for hours everyday for years after that day

 

One time it scared me really bad heart pounding stomach dropping fear it was actually probably the most benificial experience from mushrooms in the end kicked my ass and showed me became very sensere and caring after that not that I wasn't before

 

Very serious stuff as you known

my heaviest trip i ever had made me talk to big trees in the darkness (it had a face to it) and had me walkin around my hometown for hours, in my room the door was on the other side of the wall, i screamed at the tv to not fuck with me, i saw huge waves of straight wood over my head and almost gone crazy...in all this tornado of thoughts i was at the point of no return and when i was dying (!!!) and accepted it it kind of made "click" and i got a feeling of happiness that is not describable with words and i fell asleep. next day i was new born. was awesome...kind of :D

i used to mod over at azarius ... time flies, lol.

 

still have a collection of maaaany cubensis and panaeolus,

sclerotia and some other stuff (eatables and some decorative

stuff, like glowing shrooms ect.)

 

standard trip dosage is around 5-7g dry cubensis, but that's for a full trip.

when i just want to "float" abit or have some funny moments with the struc-

ture of my wallpaper, then i take less (and it of course still is a lot of fun).

 

i enjoy the "insights" (lol) and the very calm and protecting nature of these

entheogens. other stuff is a bit more "harsh" like smoked dmt (or in form

of huasca or analogues of it, different effect, tho) or lsa, salivia and the likes.

 

 

works on the mind in amazing ways to breed new insights and break from negativity and intransigence.

 

nicely put ... there comes the day where one realizes that we are just interacting

with ourselves most of the time, haha. so, to break away from running in circles

really improves life quality :)

 

it does not only help to (re-)connect the brain, but also helps against migranes

in very small and almost non-psychoactive dosages of around 0,5g, depends on

the person (weight and sensitivity ect).

I used to be a big fan of 'shrooms. The last time I was going to do some, we were holding the 'shrooms in our hands in some insane canyon area in Utah, when both of us suddenly got chills, and the feeling that we should NOT do 'shrooms at that time. It was really weird and mystical, especially since we (my brother and I) never missed an opportunity like that. Even my atheist ass had to wonder.

That brings up a philosophical question:

 

Mescalito vs. Shroomy -- Who would win in a fight?

ooh, that's a hard one ...

it's like "what will win: philosophy or religion." ... hehe

 

i mean that because hongos make me think more philosophically

and meski bears a somewhat more theological experience for me.

You just don't get it.

 

You put the two of them in a jar (with holes punched in the lid) and tilt it or shake it a little so that they fall on each other. They'll fight.

I'll do that, unless I totally screw up of course :)

 

I'm probably not supposed to post shroom pics here, couldn't find anything against it in the site rules, I suppose someone'll weigh in with a yea or nay.

 

built a clean box and inoculated four jars yesterday, now I'm going to have to curb the impulse to pull 'em out three times a day to see how they're doing.

2 weeks ago we celebrated my birthday in the garden, i brought some shrooms from my last run (about a 3/4 year ago) and my friends just ate one or two but all had an awesome ride. of course it was no real trip but the vibe itself was very funny, lil psychedelic...was fun :D

can you tell me about dosing for depression . also in relation to being a fat ass at 245/250 . my weed tolerance has dived in my older years. b4 i could puff a 2 joints easily, now 2/3 hits and i'm good even though i sometimes puff more.

 

i was also looking into kava to deal with depression too. it used to be used for that , but saw no dosing 411 .
