It seems that for med-free episodic clusterheads that take the mushrooms right at the very beginning of a cycle, very small amounts are all that is necessary... as little as a gram of dried psilocybin cubensis has been reported to work. This amount will normally produce the equivalent of a "two beer buzz". ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ For those whose cycle is well under way, that amount is often insufficient. It is sometimes necessary to take enough to make it unmistakeable that you are under the influence of a hallucinogen, yet not enough to yield a full-on Grateful Dead fan kind of experience. Since the potency of mushrooms varies widely, this amount might range from a gram and a half to roughly three grams. Some people have had to take a second dose five days after the first in order to kill The Beast completely. MAOI stands fro Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor. There are some medications that are classified as MAOIs, and must be avoided when taking hallucinogens, as they will tend to increase both the effect and duration of the hallucinogenic experience. Lithium will also increase the effects, even though it is not an MAOI.
