2.65 g oral Mushrooms - P. cyanescens (dried)
  T+ 3:00 1 bowl smoked Cannabis (flowers)


I had been searching for mushrooms for a couple of months as I wanted to trip again because I had only had two previous mushrooms trips and wished to do it again. We acquired 5.3 grams of liberty caps from a trusted source. We decided that since I live with my parents, we would sneak out after they went to sleep and go chill at this abandoned house near me with an amazing view of the city. An abandoned house in the dark may not sound like the ideal setting for a trip, but I was very familiar with the place, it was almost like my second home, so I felt comfortable there.

My friend and I ingested the shrooms at 11:40 PM by chewing them and washing down with orange juice. They don't really have any taste to them, although they still made me gag when I had them in my mouth. My mindset was fairly relaxed and comfortable as I knew I would not have any parents or adults around to worry about. I tend to get VERY paranoid on any substance, so when I trip I need to make sure there is no chance of an encounter with anyone that might create a problem.

About 10 minutes after ingestion, we set out for the walk to our destination. It is about a 20-25 minute walk from my house usually, but I believe it took more like 30 minutes to get there. About halfway there I started to experience some stomach discomfort, unusual for me as I had not experience that before on my previous shroom trips. Though my other trips I had only take 1.75 grams of cubes, so this trip was going to be almost twice as intense as either of my other trips so that's probly what accounted for it.

We needed to take breaks on the way there to let our stomachs settle. I kept burping and the taste of mushrooms and orange juice wasn't the greatest thing, I continued to burp throughout the whole trip. I started to feel them coming on when we were about 5 minutes away. That undefinable pretrip feeling. I was in the come up stage when we reached out destination. We set out a blanket in the lot and stared up and I saw some of the most amazing things I had ever seen in my life. We sat up looking at the clouds (the moon was full so we had sufficient light). I am not sure if the clouds were actually moving or not, but there were morphing into the most beautiful god and demon like looking figures. We stared up for about 15 minutes at this until my friend got scared because he saw the Crypt Keeper.

By this point, about t+ 45 minutes, I was already experience a more intense trip than ever before, and I was nowhere near the peak. This didn't really bother me at the time because I had no one around to worry about. My friend and I just walked around outside for a while admiring the patterns on the ground having still normal conversations. We the proceeded to go inside the house, where it started to get a little intense. I could not make out wut anything in the house was due to my insane visuals. My biggest problem while tripping is that I worry about my fellow trippers and always think they are going to do something stupid, so I obsess myself with watching over them. I started to do this with my friend when he started to spill water everywhere. Then the best part of the trip happened, right when I closed my eyes. I saw intricate, flowing patters that morphed into amazing shapes and designs. It looked exactly like I was inside of a hand-blown glass piece, but much more detailed and actually flowing.

I could somewhat control my CEV's. I couldn't really control what the actual visual was, but I control my view of it, like I could look at it from any angle I wanted.

I finally began to peak at about t+ 1:30, and then it started to get a little scary. We don't know what happened, but we both new that we were going to head towards a bad trip if this continued. My thought process was completely gone. I basically said my mind, without thinking, and that makes for some pretty interesting conversations. We sat down, hoping to calm ourselves and get out of this uncomfortable state. We just sat silently. After about what felt like an hour or more of this, I looked at my watch and only 10 minutes had passed! I knew this was part of a trip, and that reassurance helped me to feel better. We both started talking about how we do too many drugs. I believe drugs can do many great things for us, especially hallucinogens. But when we engulf our life in them, it is a waste of our time. Me and my friend talked about this, getting a little emotional at some points.

We sat in the house looking at the amazing visuals and having nonsense conversations when we decided it was time for a bowl. This was at about t+ 3:30 and my friend was not far from baseline, but I was just beginning to come off of my peak. I love smoking weed with hallucinogens because it doesn't even feel like being stoned, just a change and intensification of the effects and visuals of the drug. After the bowl I felt a lot better. A lot of the psychological aspects of the trip were going away, but the visuals were still in full force. We chilled at the house for a little longer and then decided it was time to walk home.

That walk home was the most amazing walk of my life. We saw faces in EVERYTHING! Every tree, hillside, or object we looked at seemed like it had hundreds of human/animal and weird looking faces in it. The coming down is my favorite part of shrooms. All I want to do is talk and enjoy the visuals and calmness of the situation. On the way home I saw this tree and it was the perfect representation of a shrooms trip. I then decided that shrooms are a very wavy drug. We continued to have philosphical conversation and see amazing things on the way back, until we finally reach my house at about t+5:00. I was still seeing visuals, especially with my blacklight. Blacklights intensify any visuals. I finally went to sleep at about t+6:30, still not baseline.

I woke up the next morning not with a hangover or anything, just a general different feeling than normal. Let it be noted that I had a VERY intense body high during this trip. It was almost too much. Every single cell in my body felt like it was vibrating, and I felt tingly all over, but not in the good MDMA way. I also had this odd sensation that my lungs, or some internal organ was trying to crawl out my body through my mouth. I became very worried about this at one point and had the typical 'what have I done to myself?' thoughts. These subsided when I didn't think about them though. Another thing about shrooms is that if I think about breathing at all, it becomes difficult. I can never tell if my breathing is OK, or if I have hyperventilating or the opposite. My inhalations became very unstable and sporadic when that happens. It is scary. Shrooms are a great substance, although I have never had a completely smooth trip on them, I have gained so much beauty and knowledge through them.
