This lack of formatting is a pain in the butt, but I guess it is necessary for now. Sigh. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ My first VERY small dose of psilocybin mushrooms kept me shadow-free for about two weeks. I am currently on vacation in Ottawa, Canada, and had decided not to travel with contraband, so naturally The Beast decided it was a perfect time to return. I had a mild (Kip 3) CH during the flight here (Nov 17), and a few more in the following days. I was able to get my hands on some black market mushrooms, and took 3 grams of thoroughly dried Psilocybin cubensis prepared as a tea yesterday morning. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ The first effects were felt about 45 minutes after ingestion, and peaked about 45 minutes after that. I stayed at that level for about two hours, then had a very smooth descent, and felt pretty much normal about five hours after drinking the tea. It was a very pleasant experience, with some subtle visual distortions, some sweaty palms, slightly elevated body temperature, some restlessness, and the usual "anticipatory" bodily feeling common to the hallucinogenic experience. I had a yawning fit on the way down, and felt the usual post-experience fatigue, even though I spent most of the time lying down watching reruns of The Simpsons. I would rate it as a solid "Level two" experience, so the potency of the mushrooms was a bit below average. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~This morning, almost precisely 24 hours after drinking the tea, I had a Kip 3 that I was able to kill with a couple of AC&C tablets (Acetaminophen, caffeine, and codeine) and I am reminding myself that it is quite common for this to happen in the first few days after taking mushrooms. I have no mushrooms left (it was quite a hassle to find the first 3 grams), but I do have a few blotters of LSD of dubious potency that I can take as a backup at the end of the week if it is required, and if I can't obtain more mushrooms. I prefer to stick with the mushrooms, mainly because the effects last only 4 to 6 hours rather than the 8 to 12 hours that LSD provides, but if I have to eat a blotter or two, so be it. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Of course I am hoping that I will get the same results as most med-free episodics at the beginning of a cycle do, and not have to do another dose at all. My first dose was obviously insufficient, but I hadn't really expected it to last very long, since it was so very small. It was more an experiment than a serious attempt at Beast-stomping. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ I will keep y'all informed.
