hahaha what a great picture

mushies are great. might not be the best for the festival. Never did like crowds. Can be way too much of a head fuck. I'd stick with 'cid if you just have to trip.

I think mushrooms are more mellow than acid. Also, it depends if it's you first time or you have done it a lot - do you prefer crowds. I never minded, just do my own thing and have fun.

whynotsmile99 is right, though, if you don't like crowds or get nervous, it could make for a very long and crazy day (and not crazy in a good way).

I'd suggest snacking on a gram, rather than an full portioned 1/8th. Not enough for hallucenations, but enough to get a great buzz going that lasts for a few hours, instead of 8 hrs :P

Becareful with shroomz kids, some can make you poop red =(

thats what i did. Not the best experience. Lights looked a bit prettier, DM and Franz Ferdinand were fun watching from a distance but I just felt really confused and antsy. really didn't like the crowd and being alone. not a bad experience though. Probably wouldn't do it again though. I'd do more :)

I tried them once and had a good experience.
My old roommate however....
He took way too much for a first trip and to make it worse he was all alone. He started tripping too hard and was scared they gave him poison mushrooms, so he called the poison control center and told them he had just taken mushrooms and he wasn't feeling very well.
They asked "what kind of mushrooms did you ingest?"
He says "I dunno Magic Mushrooms"
the voice on the other end giggles, "ok so you took mushrooms to get really high and now you're really high, how can we help you?"
he hung up and started a really really bad trip.
He thought he brain was bleeding and called his mom and told her the whole story. She picked him up and i didn't see him for three days.
When he returned he showed no emotion, he just sat there staring at the tv answering all questions in a monotone yes or no or i dunno.
It took him like a week to get back to normal.
That was a bad trip.

my roomates buddy flipped out. called the cops on himself. he smacked a cop and an ambulance driver and backup was called. Took like 8 people to take him away.

i've had one bad trip. Worst experience of my life. I literally lost all connection to myself and the world, was floating through time and space, thinking i was dead going to hell. I spent 6 hours sobbing on my bed. but i came off it, realized what a wonderful world we live in and how greatful i am to have the things i have and the friends i have. I hugged everyone and that was over with thank god. still the most tramatic experience of my life. Mushies are intense!

I like shroom chocolates they hit you way quicker cause the shroom is already broken down. Can't have em in the desert though or you'll have a mess. Grind em up in a coffe grinder or food processor & put the powder in capsules. Very convenient & no bad taste in yr mouth. You can always make shroom honey too mmmmmmm........yummy.

Mmm...shrooms. I would love to find some. But it's too iffy as to whether I would enjoy myself or freak out from the crowds. Anytime I trip shrooms I always feel like I'm right on the brink of completely fucking losing it.

I had a friend who tripped with another group one night. It was supposed to be a low key trip, just at someone's house, etc. Well the guy who got the shrooms took his about 20 minutes before everyone else. Just as he peaked, and everyone else's was taking effect, he freaked out that they all overdosed and called 911. Long story short, the entire group spent their trip in the emergency room of the local hospital, having blood drawn and whatnot. I think that right there would trigger a bad trip for me. ugh.

Never do a bunch of K period. K hole experience isn't a comfy place to be, least not for me. My friends were K tards. My buddy ran the state of Ohio. Bottles of pharmeceutical grade ketamine were at our disposal for $40 a bottle. We did it in unhealthy amounts. Then everybody started shootin it in thier butt. Thats when I got out of that scene. I've had the most extreme auditory hallucinations on that shit. Had my time with that stuff no more.

front of the pit in '02 during bjork...i remember being completely fascinated that an experience like that was actually possible on earth...i felt like that kid in the movie "Magnolia" when it starts raining frogs outside and the wizkid says something like, "this happens?"...i also remember that bjork had a phatty base that was soooo powerful that the fleshy tip of my nose was vibrating and tickling...everyone pressed up around me felt like an ocean of people like when you walk into the ocean and the waves push you around and there is nothing you can do but go with the flow and try to not get taken under...i also remember the moon that night (which can be seen during the bjork portion of the coachella dvd)...when i looked at it, i felt it circling the earth, then i swore i felt the earth rotating around the sun (even though i couldn't see the sun @ the time)...i felt the pull of the cosmos on my body and it was fucking awesome...i will never forget it, it completely changed my outlook on life...i have never had a bad trip...one thing to remember kids, you have to keep a positive outlook when doing any type of hallucinating, or else you risk it all going to shit, and that is just a waste of goodies if you ask me...awww, too bad i have been unable to hook anything up this year, it sounds fun

i've only had one bad experience with mushrooms. it was actually a mix of shrooms and peyote. some friends and i were in phoenix at a neighborhood art show. needless to say, there were a lot of people there. i got pretty nervous from all the people and wanted to throw up but everywhere i went, there was someone there. i felt as though my life was saved when my friend that was there to pick us up found me walking in a much less populated area of the art show. from that point on, my night got much better. i doubt i'll ever do something like that around so many people.

i had 1 bad experience on shrooms, but the trip is more 'managable' than say lsd the only other hallucinogen i've tried. i ate a couple caps as my girlfriend and i were waiting for the cure at ultra, and i ran into quite a few friends, they were all passing joints, i must have smoked for an hour straight. that was a mistake. i started getting tired, and uncomfortable from standing, and next thing i know i'm on the floor. i fainted for like less than a minute, but was able to normalize relatively quickly. when i awoke i had some intense visuals but i didn't freak out or anything afterwards. the rest of the night i had a decent time, but was still weirded out from the fact i fainted, which was the only time i've ever fainted from a drug related cause. i felt bad for all my friends, cause i was the only one in the group shrooming, and my passing out affected their experience at the festival as well.

i would just be really careful if you're ingesting them raw. and don't smoke (so much) as your coming up. because i apparently had too much shrooms and weed. I should have kept myself hydrated, had some food to snack on, and not stand for so long in a single spot.

it sucked though because, well the cure wasn't terribly impressive. i was peaking as they played a hundred years that song was awesome. mstrkft sounded good but i was too drained from the trip and couldn't get into it. later in the evening though after a good long pit stop at home and more beer, we went to another party and i still managed to have a good time despite passing out earlier.

You grind the shrooms up then cook them in a slow cooker for like 12 hours w the honey stirring it around like makin ganja butter. The psyilocybin (I know I spelled that wrong) is drawn out into the honey. When its done you strain it & the honey should be blueish in color. You can take a teaspoon or two and put it in tea or on toast or whatever. No nasty taste of shroom.
Note that potency of the shrooms & amount of honey you use detemine poetency of the honey.

The first time I tripped was at a Widespread Panic concert. It was AMAZING. The concert was in Little Rock, AR at the Riverfront Amphitheater. It's a really nice venue, sits right on the AR River (as you may have guessed from the name.) It had rained all day, but right before the show was supposed to start the skies cleared out and we got to witness the most breathtaking sunset ever. It looked like the sun was melting into the river. It was my first jam band concert, and there were tons of "hippies" running around. I had no idea that culture even existed (yeah, I sound really naive right now, but up until then I had had a very sheltered religious upbringing in a tiny little farming community in Arkansas.) Everyone was soooo friendly, passing pipes and joints, hippy girls were blowing bubbles and dancing around. It was amazing, like some sort of crazy fantasy world.

I got a half 1/8 from last year too and a fresh 1/8 for this year. I ate about an eighth last year on sunday at like noon. There was nothing bad that happened, just the most fun I've ever had. A lot of people aren't too keen about tripping out hard in large crowds but I have no probalem with it, at least at Coachella. A narcotics officer convention is a different story though. So I ate about half of my stash at about noon and a couple hours later not much was happening so like anyone, I ate the other half. Instantly I noticed the grass growing larger and starting to softly caress my legs. I was sitting under one of the tents waiting for Wolf Parade to start and the tent ceiling was pulsating and morphed into a huge white and red spiral circus tent then the band started playing and it was the best music I had ever heard, despite their technical difficulties. Afterwards I just wandered the field with my girlfriend and looked at funny people and shit, caught some acts, caught some cold drinks and tastey treats. Everything was swaying and waving. I saw sun rays come down from the sky and bounce off the dancing grass and masses of people. I had complete resistence to the heat as well, it seemed like a perfect day despite being super fucking hot. Gnarles Barkley blew my mind. I felt the music deep within myself, saw the lights wash out darkness, I was just in utter nirvana all day, everything is great and while on psychedelics it seems like the entire festival is designed specifically for those tripping out. Everything is easy to find regardless of your level of sobriety, the lights are crazy all the time, music always kicks ass.

In conclusion I say eat those mushrooms up, have a friend with you and make sure they do too. The setting for a psychedelic trip is prefect at Coachella. Just eat them later in the afternoon like around 3 or 4 after the heat of midday and time it so you're still be mind blown when the sun goes down. I'm eating mine Saturday.

yea caitlin, i wouldn't eat it if they do have any odd shit growing on it. Other then that bluish tint shit of course. I've had mushies for months and they have been alright though.

Shrooms can be the most amazing time of your life. The first time I did it i was very scared. I only smoked some pot before, never experimented with anything harder. I took an 8th at my friends house, the day he was having a backyard BBQ. I start coming up and walk into the living room. My buddy is watching the end of Se7en.


"Don't open the box! Just don't open the box". scared the living jesus out of me. I ran outside and sat in a chair staring at the ground and my jacket for 4 hours. People thought i was having a bad time, but my mind was so blown I just couldn't move. But i loved it. I loved looking at my friend's movie posters. Kill Bill was glowing, and the the submarine on THe Life Aquatic was moving through the water, with fish swiming around it.

The times past that have been amazing (excluding the bad trip above of course). Favorite trip would have to be the third time i did it. I was in a perfect mood, perfect weather, perfect everything. I usually don't like being around crowds or strangers on it, but this time nothing bothered me. I walked right by a cop and felt no fear.

My buddies and I walked to the beach boardwalk. Ice Cube was playing a show in Ventura, so we were staring at those sky light things they set up for big events. They were bouncing off the sky and were beautiful. Then we came back home, set up blacklights all around our house played loud dance music and just started running around in a circle dancing and laughing till we were in tears. It was a blast!

I need to do them in nature sometime. Still haven't done that. I did acid in the woods which was cool, but some dude in a straw hat that looked like Dr. Robotnik from the sonic video games was fly fishing. Scared the living fuck out of us

i can't believe the heat didn't bother you. I did em late at coachella but wouldn't dream of doing earlier. I did em before in the afternoon when my friends and I walked to the beach. It was nice out, maybe 80 tops. we were sweating balls. I didn't cool off till 4 hours later, even after coming home and washing up

I've never had a bad mushie experience. Unless you consider ego loss/death to be a bad trip (which lots of people most definitely would). Personally I like it. But I also like DMT, what can I say. The only reason I wouldn't shroom at coachella is the body load. I usually wind up curled up in a ball, in the dark, with headphones blasting some heavy psytrance. Good times.

But even with hippy flipping it's hard to want to move around unless you just take a really low dose of the boomers, which isn't really worth it. Definitely more of a small group of close friends or solo-trip kind of substance for me.

As for positive experiences; just recently I had a chance to eat 3g of very potent homegrowns a friend of mine provided. This was out in the forest in the middle of the night with all the stars blazing. Then another friend started his crazy fire poi:

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b254/iconistx/April_Gathering_20072651.jpg

which, while tripping, is insane. Especially when he'd toss it 15+ feet in the air and catch it, turning it into a wicked spin move. :)

K, that's it. </ramble>

yeah i took shrooms at around 7 pm on friday, and peaches was about to go on when it was creeping up, so needless to say i couldnt handle that shit. So after walking around, puking, and staring at that light bulb thing for about 20 minutes, i calmed down. FAITHLESS WAS THE SHIT!!!!!!

Smoke some herb before, it helps settle the rumbling/nausea in the stomach. In addition to chilling you out before hand :P And if you end up tripping too hard, smoke more herb to bring you down a bit.

But yea, first time shrooming at Coachella this year. Did them Fri and Sat, it was crazy...I had a great fun and trippy time, but yea as said above, you don't want to take too much. And I didn't take them til after 6pm, I would not fucking take them in that heat, ugh...

I have to say, it almost was a bit too hectic. There is already so much going on in your own head, and you combine that with the atmosphere of Coachella and things can get pretty intense. I don't think I will do them at the next one, but if I do it will be 2 grams and only 1 day....and I will take them later in the evenining.

be safe & smart out there kids~

I took shrooms on Sunday at Coachella this year and had an awesome time. I had a few drinks in me already so I think that helped a bit dealing with being in a crowd. I normally wouldn't drink/shroom, it just happened that way but it turned out to be a great combination for me at the time.

3 year bump. Good job, GPS.

I don't think I'll shroom. I haven't had very pleasant experiences with getting high, so I don't think that hallucinogens would be a good idea for me. I did witness someone go from sober to flipping out on shrooms in about 10 minutes. He kept offering me chocolate shrooms (like 7 times), and was like "You sober, bro? Like straight-edge?" When I said "yeah" (didn't know what else to say) he gave me a big hug and said "I love you bro."

I only needed once but I swear, I am still fucked up from it and it happened 2 years ago almost. Every once in awhile I still find myself back in that very dark place.

I tried them once and had a good experience.
My old roommate however....
He took way too much for a first trip and to make it worse he was all alone. He started tripping too hard and was scared they gave him poison mushrooms, so he called the poison control center and told them he had just taken mushrooms and he wasn't feeling very well.
They asked "what kind of mushrooms did you ingest?"
He says "I dunno Magic Mushrooms"
the voice on the other end giggles, "ok so you took mushrooms to get really high and now you're really high, how can we help you?"
he hung up and started a really really bad trip.
He thought he brain was bleeding and called his mom and told her the whole story. She picked him up and i didn't see him for three days.
When he returned he showed no emotion, he just sat there staring at the tv answering all questions in a monotone yes or no or i dunno.
It took him like a week to get back to normal.
That was a bad trip.


hahaha this totally happened to my friend as well except he didn't call the poison control center.

exactly... and unfortunately anxiety feeds off these past memories, so theres no way I could eat them and just pretend like nothing ever happened.

I quit for 6 years, had 3 good months a couple summers ago, and then completely lost it once again.... on minimal amounts too (but i hear the dust hits you harder)

I usually just smoke a bowl or two after I eat them and I have the greatest trip.

I think what really triggered the second attack was the fact i did them by myself but w/ sober people around. It got to the point where i was begining to trip really hard and people were laughing, but not at me (but in my head of course they were laughing at me). Then the face of insanity appeared and i knew i was fucked.... throwing up didnt help, smoking bowls didnt help... luckily the majority of the people i was w/ were musicians and 3 of them spent a good few hours just playing acoustic guitar for me.

Shrooms are very forgiving, at least with me. And I've taken upwards of 6 grams before...

I've learned the trick for myself to have a good, easy trip is to only take like 1 gram at a time.

This guy reminds me of a very fried out middle aged fellow on PHISH tour 2001, who had a sign encouraging folks to dose him...he'd obviously had waaaay too much over the years. This then brings to mind a quote from last Coachella, "If you party too hard, it becomes too hard to party." Which I find to be very good advice.

yes the trick is to snack on them throughout the day, rather than ingesting a large amount at once. just a little at first, and keep eating until you get to a good point. then just keep snacking when you feel like it, and youre set for the whole day! the perfect accessory to coachella =)

2008: I ate an eighth before aphex twin and had my mind melted!

2010: I ate a eighth before fever ray and was delightfully terrified!

2011:Friday: I ate a quarter and tripped balls all the way through crystal castles/monarchy and nosaj thing and then came down by the end of chemical brothers and had one of the best trips in my life!

2011:Saturday: In an attempt to trip for animal collective i munched the last of my shrooms but they were prety well ground up and i hadn't eaten in a while so i ended up tripping really hard during the end of mumford and sons set and then pretty much came down before animal collective played a single note! :P

I had a great trip this last year, ate the boomers around the time of layedback luke. I was told by a friend that they were strong, just started munching at them. Before I knew it my friends said lets go to One Day As A Lion, I tried standing up but the ground was moving... That day was crazy, had crazy thoughts in my head but had to push on.

I love shrooms, at EDC vegas I had a great trip, just make sure you have friends ready to comfort you...

I ate this strain called "Penis Envy" at Pitchfork just before Animal Collective. Lost my shit for awhile. I'm a big fan now.
Any boomer connoisseurs out there that can recommend your favorite or strong strains.

Columbian, PE, Cyanescens, and Cubensis

I wish I had friends that grew these...

Which would you say was the strongest Geno? I've been wanting to try the Columbian. I've had Amazonian (or Amazonies), South African, & Ecuador all if which were superb. Golden Teachers generally always good especially when fresh.

A cube is a cube. There really isn't any difference in the strength between strains. Growers typically pick one strain or another based on its ease of cultivation for their region. Some will argue that PE is a stronger strain, but this is debatable.

I watched The Shining while on shrooms. It was awesome...well, until I started throwing up. I would recommend it (maybe as tea though, NOT in chocolate -- fuck that shit).
