3.0 g oral Syrian Rue (seeds)
  T+ 0:15 10 g oral Mushrooms - G. spectabilis (plant material)


I had read a couple postings about experiences with the Big Laughing Gym mushroom, Gymnopilus spectabilis. So I ordered some from JLF. On New Years Eve around 11pm, I took 3g of crushed, encapsulated Syrian Rue seed. About 15 minutes later I ate the mushrooms in beef soup. This experience was very mild. After ~2 hours, I was feeling unreal, awkward. Then a fight broke out at the party I was at, and the rest of the night, all I felt were bad vibes. But it wasn't too bad because the shrooms were REALLY weak. If they would have been strong I probably would have freaked. Everything that I've ever bought from JLF has failed to produce results. They say 'no guarantees,' and I see why. I'm done buying from them.
