It took me two full months 0.03gm doses to build the the tolerance to make it “Sub-Perceptual”, also for me to notice the lasting effects. Rather that experiencing the benefit only while the effects were perceptual. Two months it took so I would feel the effects while I wasn’t in the four hour window. Four month later though, I feel like took a dose on the days I skip. Meaning that literally on my days off I feel like I did the day I took my first microdose with more than a sub-perceptual experience. Down side is I took a 7gm does last week and it was very visual but not so different from the effect I get from the microdose itself or more so from taking a day off. If that makes any sense.

Thoughts and observations from yesterday (no worries PsyBear - your point is valid & I'll address it below) :)

Pros:

1. Great creative boost - that sculpture has been partially done for over a year.
2. Happiness - felt like that post -shroom trip happiness / wellbeing without having to schedule a full-blown trip
3. Ethanol - I felt little to no desire to drink (really, really odd for me) - I had water until my woman made me two gin & tonics that I didn't ask for but drank out of politeness - she's a keeper :)
4. Sleep - I went to bed around 12am and popped out of bed at 8am - I'm a chronic insomniac, and when I do sleep, it's usually waaay too long and that messes me up just as bad. I should mention I'm off work - usually on off-work nights I'm up until 2-3, drinking myself to sleep.

Cons:

Here's the odd part that I'm not sure of. I went to the store before dosing. When the psilly was kicking in, at home, I started thinking about the store manager who asked me if I needed help finding anything - I said, "I'm looking for some rye bread." (Can't call it a Reuben without rye ... I prefer the swirl kind). Dude went into the back of the store and dug out a loaf from the truck - sweet!

I got to thinking about it, sat down and wrote him a short thank-you note, looked up the store address online, dug out a forever stamp, and put that bitch in the mailbox with the flag up. My logic was this:

1) This is how the world SHOULD work.
2) It took him longer to find the loaf than it took me to write and send the thank you note.
3) Who doesn't like getting positive reinforcement for something good they did?

I should mention that I haven't sent a note or letter via physical mail in .. . I don't know how long? It was honestly probably forever ago back when I was trading with H3 and other 'topiates ... I guess that makes it 16 years or so.

No placebo effect there - that's just weird for me ... definitely not something I would generally do, as I'm the biggest cynic I know.

Big question: WAS that weird? Will I see that guy in a week and find him avoiding eye contact, or will he be jumping to find me loaves of bread now?

Too late to worry, as my dog alerted me to the mail man's presence a few hours ago.

Anywhoo - that's where I'm at. I'm really wondering about the 4 day thing. If I'm gonna experiment with the time frame more, I need to get some jars going ASAP, which means I need to find an actual spore vendor or reanimate some of those 15 year old spores I have tucked away :)

soliver

edit: My sculptures fall into two distinct categories, and they're all chainsaw 1) gigantic 400lb phalluses that I sell to bizarre people or 2) MOAI heads that I sell to bizarre people. The one I'm working on is so big I had to hollow some parts out just so I could move it around a bit, and that's using dry poplar.

If I ever get it complete and vertical, I'll snap a pic :)

Super awesome man!! Nice that people like you still exist!! Carry on!

That makes sense.

 

Still, crazy about the effects of skipping a dose? 

 

I'm sold on micro-dosing ... I feel like I can produce my own anti-depressive meds that work better than anything I've ever used ...

 

Fuck Prozac and Zoloft and all those bitches. 

 

Fuck Ritalin.

 

Fuck Sertraline.

 

Fuck Adderal. 

 

Fuck Amitriptaline.

 

Fuck the pharmaceutical giants.

 

Love you guys / gals,

Steak and potatoes and asparagus and dinner and a movie with the family tonight ...

 

ENTER THE DRAGON.

 

If you only watch one Kung-Fu movie in your life, that's what it should be, right? 

 

I mean ... don't offend my family and don't offend the fucking Shaolin Temple, otherwise some wiry asian dude will show up and beat the shit out of your guards, school them in the use of the nun-chukkas, and ruin your heroin / prostitution ring.  Kung-Fu 101.

 

Snarfed .47g before dinner just because.  My last dose was Thursday and I'm not due for another for two days (according to my randomly appointed schedule) but it seemed like a good idea at the time (no complaints).

 

'Spring' has bitch-slapped the property like a seasonal pimp on bath-salts the past 48 hours ... the frogs are singing fuck-songs on a 24 hour loop up at the pond.

 

I put the Zoom R8 recorder on the dock to record their mating rituals - something I haven't done in about 10 years.  Last time, I floated my work laptop out in a canoe and left it overnight.  The recording was decent, but the dewfall penetrated the keyboard, leaving me with my dick in my hand when I had to explain to the tech department why my digital assistant was acting funny.

 

Overall, I'll say that the (give or take) 4 hours that I spend "under the influence" aren't really that great - I feel sort of off, and creative, and scattered, and appreciative ... my eyes water a bit and I yawn a LOT, but the residual effects that trickle down for several days after are well worth it.

 

I've gotten back into the gym, and I'm not preoccupied with stacking on plates as much as completing my sets while maintaining form - if you've ever entered the world of free-weights you'll know what an ego-loss that means (how much you bench?).

 

I'm finding a lot of joy in the stupid assed details of modern life, or at least I'm not suffering the torments of hell while getting through the day - is there a difference?

 

While the micro-dose isn't a panacea - my sex life hasn't gone porn-pro, for example - it's an improvement thusfar from where I started.  Maybe I should order some Chinese Viagra, dust it, and mix it into my peanut butter?

 

Who knows - either way, it 's a beautiful evening outside.  I guess I'll go drink a beer and strum some tunes on the porch.  Hopefully I'll remember to get the recorder from the pond before I crash out ... not sure if it's possible to post sound files here, but if anyone wants to hear a load of horny frogs crying "fuck" into the night, I'll do my best ...

 

:)

Weird.

 

So, last weekend, I ended up taking about .75 Saturday night ... good time had by all - no full trip, but a fun evening with the family.

 

Then I sorta got off-track ... yesterday and today I felt sort of ... off?  Odd.  Neither kratom nor a few beers seemed to address it .. the spouse asked me how long since I'd micro dosed and I thought "shit - it's been a week." 

 

So I chewed up .2ish and chased it with some PB (because it's awesome).

 

Within 20 minutes I felt "normal" (or whatever that means for me).

 

I guess I'd rather be addicted to shrooms than Prozac or some other shit, but it's funny how today turned out.

 

A watched jar never pins,

 

:)

Big question:  WAS that weird?  Will I see that guy in a week and find him avoiding eye contact, or will he be jumping to find me loaves of bread now?

 

Heck yeah its weird. I'd expect nothing less from a fellow non-Normal, lol.

 

But that's only because so few people still do it (send snail-mail letters OR thank someone for going out of their way to help). That might be because empathy seems to get sucked right out of people by this rocket-sled techno-dystopia we're living in (how could it not? If we're lost and bewildered in the human cosmos ourselves, how are we going to help anyone else find their way home, or even find the time to start thinking about it? Sorry buddy, I gotta take care of me first or I can't take care of you!).

 

But when we ignore our own internal nonsense and make such a gesture anyway, it tends to blow people's minds as well as changing our own. Mushrooms sure seem to facilitate manifesting more empathy (to put it mildly) so I'd guess that your microdose helped inspire it and the gesture that followed.

 

And that gesture could very well act like tossing a happy-boulder into the pond of the manager's mind, with the resulting concentric rings from it's impact affecting his life in ways you or he will probably never know (for the better!). Many of the rocks we toss into each other's ponds are the negative variety these days (trolls gotta troll), likely inspired by the negative turd-rocks others tossed into their ponds (tossed turds make concentric rings, too). And so on.

 

If we continue to get turds chucked into our pond (and we will) but choose not to pass 'em on by shitting in other people's ponds and start tossing positive-rocks into 'em instead then we break the cycle and reverse the momentum (a little bit, anyway). And thereby can we save the proverbial world, bit by little bit. Kind of like how we'd eat an elephant. And it might work as a cure for cynicism, too (which is worth curing):

 

“What passes for hip cynical transcendence of sentiment is really some kind of fear of being really human, since to be really human [...] is probably to be unavoidably sentimental and naïve and goo-prone and generally pathetic.”  ― David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

 

 

And microdosing WORKS. It could very well be among the most important developments for improving and supporting mental health ever, at least IMO. I've watched it save at least two marriages, cure one guy's alcoholism (which is how one marriage was saved), help minimize a friend's step-mother's rather harsh journey through menopause and alleviate her chronic depression, and it gets me back on-track whenever I wander off into a briar patch in my head.

 

My friend who was a severe alcoholic dosed every day for 4 months straight (then went to occasional doses as-needed), and he used batches of honey I made him (same recipe I posted here many years ago and still occasionally make exactly as posted), which made consistent dosing possible.

 

The mix ratio I worked out gives you one gram of dried fungi in one level teaspoon of honey (so a 1/4 tsp is a 1/4 gram, etc.). You might want to try doing it that way too since mushrooms can be highly variable in their potency and grinding them up and mixing them homogenizes the potency. You'll be able to determine what 1/4g, 1/2g, or other doses will do for you then replicate the results by taking the same size dose from the same batch of honey (each batch needs to be calibrated slightly due to variable potency among flushes, strains, grows, etc.).

 

Incidentally, the batch of honey I made entirely out of an ounce of aborts I'd saved for the purpose turned out so strong that I used a red Sharpie to mark 'em "XXX" so I wouldn't confuse them for regular-strength tubs. So watch out for that, lol...

I'm anxious to get some of the 'ol extract rockin' again.  My freezer batch ran out a while ago and I'm looking at the dried fruits I've got in the pint jar and wondering how long that's gonna carry me ... fortunately I've got some irons in the fire and HELLA good motivation to make a grow happen.  I saw mycelial growth on my WBS jars this afternoon, so that's extremely exciting.  Probably ought to order another syringe and get another experiment rolling just in case ...

 

Man - when I think of the bulk subs I fruited, and ... what the fuck did I DO with all those goddamn mushrooms?  I mean, I had 24 quarts of philosophers' stones under my bed at one point.  I never sold a fucking thing and only took a few trades (MJ) ... It's really a wonder that I don't have a LOT more friends, right?  I've never given away money, but I've experienced the look on someone's face when you hand them a sack of shrooms then shoo them away ... I don't know how many times.  "No Regerts," but I still gotta wonder how the hell I managed to dispose of ... holy shit ... hundreds of cake shrooms, experimental bulk grows ... I mean - fuck - at one point there were hundreds of GTs popping through the mulch in the raised flowerbeds outside a condo I used to live in ... dozens of people passed them every day.  That's where I'd dispose of my green experiments, mixed into a sack of Black Kow ... Hilarious. 

 

But I'm off-track ...

 

It's great to see / hear from ya TV!  It's really been too long.  I saw your posts last night and the old lady was all "what are you going on about over there?" and I tried once again explaining how there used to be this thing called the OMC, and these people who ... and... well ... never mind  ... had to be there ...  :)  I didn't have the time to properly respond - today is a bit better ...

 

I've noticed that on micro-dose days I either don't feel the urge to drink, or I drink a bit more than usual, probably just because I'm feeling good?  Two nights ago I stayed up late drinking sake and making KimChi ... man that stuff smells like a fermenting garbage can, but DAMN is it good stuff (I put it in the room with the litterbox and the O - 3 generator).

 

So I'm 2 days since last dose and wondering if I should hit it today or tomorrow.  I'm leaning towards today, but also wanna make sure I stretch this stuff out until I'm drowning in a sea of fresh caps again  :) 

 

All told, this (hopefully) upcoming piss test has revived a hobby I've really missed, as well as a substance I've missed even more.  I'm still waiting to hear back from the interview ... if I don't get it, I still have a job, but this new position would be super-sweet ... gah ... those bastards making me wait!

 

I mean - they did 2 days of interviews.  That was over a week ago.  I've hired tons of people - you know by the end of the day who's gonna get the job ... the waiting ... goddamit!  I'm an American.  I'm unused to waiting for gratification and ambivalent to failure.

 

Ah well.  I'll just munch a cap and take what comes - outta my hands now, right?  At this point, I'm not even sure I want to go back to toking MJ at night - the self -denial may have been good for me overall, and allah knows I don't need any help where excess is concerned....

 

many thanks,

 

:)

Keeping track of my own progress here - no need to comment unless you think it's wise ...  :)

 

So I didn't get the job.  Bummer.  On the other hand, I like the one I've got, and I live in the richest nation on the planet, so I guess I can't bitch too much.

 

I accidentally overdosed myself this afternoon, but no one seemed to mind or notice - the spouse went up the hill for yoga lessons and I made the kids dinner then abandoned ship and sat on the couch and read Keith Richards's ghost-written novel (already forgot the title - the first 20 pages are numb - ever wonder about KR's extended family?  Me neither) ....

 

I've found that I really, really need (? need ?) to take some shroom every other day.

 

No shit - if I'm feeling down, I can take a small stem / cap and slowly chew it up - let it mix with my saliva and swish around my mouth for a minute or two, getting it all pulverized before I swallow it ...

 

And I'm not shitting you - I feel better within about 3-5 minutes.  Argue amongst yourselves, but it's not a freakin' placebo - I'm too at-one with my brain chemistry to be wrong here ... it's sorta creepy and pleasant all at the same time.  My concern:

 

Am I addicting myself to psily?  A better question is if I give a fuck, but still .... I'll feel a LOT better about the issue after a few cased grain trays or bulk subs come through for me - only Allah knows ... I still have many lessons to learn.

 

I have 5 quarts of colonized WBS ...  a few are starting to show rhizo growth, so I'll probably case three of 'em this weekend and bulk sub an other - the one I have sitting in the kitchen seems to be sprouting a few nibs, so I guess I'll let it pop a few caps and then ... we'll see. 

 

Tomorrow's Friday, thanks be to Jesus ... I know I need it.

 

That's all, folks,

 

:)

It's great to see/hear from you, too! Every community needs its deviants to avoid turning it into a typically-boring gathering of Normals, after all.

 

And these communities come and go (and then come back) as conditions warrant, kind of like mushrooms.

 

How goes the microdosing?

Hey TV!

 

It's going great thusfar.  I began planning on dropping .2g every few days, and it's since changed to me generally taking two half-gram doses on Sunday while working in the yard or whatever, and then oftentimes dropping a few tenths of a gram sometime mid-week as time allows.

 

This weekend I had a pal come over to jam Friday night - I'd dosed .5 gram an hour before he called to say he was on the way ... had a great time - he does guitar & vocals, I'm into the drum kit these days. 

 

I'm planning on upping my dose schedule once I have a fresh psilly supply.  Right now I'm sadly close to seeing the bottom of the jar in the cabinet - I'm really curious to get some bulk and do some massive extractions and see how that changes the experience.

 

I've never dosed less than a gram equivalent with the extract, so ... I wonder how that will go at half gram and lower doses?

 

What is fascinating me currently is my overall mental predisposition towards NOT dosing - my body seems to fight the stuff - I fear the reaper, and getting over that is my summer goal.  It's super-easy to NOT dose, but every time I take a few stems, I feel better ... so ... ???  It's interesting to say the least.  I'm wondering if the extract more or less stripping out the unpleasant side effects will alleviate that.  Time, bulk, and extracts will tell.

 

It's good to have a crowd of oddballs to bounce these things off of . . .

 

:)

Soliver - that's a good sign!

 

And it supports my and others' belief and observation that use of the product is a overly safe and non-habit forming. That is, one realizes the value of using it within the therapeutic window such that you want to stay there. The off days are good. The body likes and responds to variations in the state of things. It's like that will all the senses and the sensorium as well.

 

One never takes a micro or any other dose and says "man, I got to have some more".  In addition, when it 'wears off' you feel 'normal' or just fine. This is in stark contrast to a particular toxic, hangover-prone, addictive but legal, non-scheduled substance, not even prescription substance that is served up or sold at practically every place on the planet and kills, maims, destroys lives. How did this country get so screwed up in that regard?

Micro-Notes:

 

After a full-blown, many stage trip Saturday night, I followed up with two 5 gram (fresh) doses on Fathers day, which made lounging in the pond a real treat..

 

Monday was recovery day - I was just beat from the overindulgence of the weekend ... not just the mushies, but the brews and sake probably moreso.  I still made it to the gym, but it about killed me and that was all I had in for for the day.

 

Tuesday I was slumpish AF.  I snarfed 5mls of an extract I made from fresh shrooms - 20g fresh topped off the the 100ml line on a 1/2 pint jar. 

 

Wow - that made me a new man.  I was productive and didn't even jones a beer or anything.  Got lots completed around the house and had a great day.

 

Today I got up, hit the gym - it's been a solid, also productive day with no 'analysis anxiety' that oftentimes shuts me down on summer days when I'm on furlough. 

 

I rebuilt the %^&*()_ lawnmower deck, but one of the brackets is broken and I need the get that welded (beyond my arts) - otherwise I should be set - hopefully get that done tomorrow down in the big city.

 

No MD today - not sure if I'm gonna or if it's needed?  I may snarf 5mls just to see if it has positive bennies tomorrow, or ... maybe not.

 

Actually, I'm gonna go snarf that right now.  That's what I get for thinking. 

 

You folks keep it magical,

 

:)

It’s beem like 1 day.
How do you know it’s not just placebo at this point ?

 

What is Placebo anyways.... I believe its just the mind acting on this physical reality. Dose not mean its not healing.

 

Pharmaceutical companies cannot explain the placebo effect. Sugar pills heal peoples bodies for an ailment cause a doctor tells them its some other drug and they "truly" believe it will heal them. And so it dose.

 

Weather you think you or it can... or you think you or it cant... Either way your always right... Its YOUR THINKING that makes it so.

I agree with you up to a point - sadly, believing didn't do much for me when I got that bum tab of LSD a few weeks ago . . . no mistaking a hit of acid for a sugar pill IME . . .

 

I've cut my regular doses down to just a single dose pretty much every weekend . . . not on purpose, really, but it just seems to have worked out that way, so I'm leaving it as-is until I can think of a good reason for dosing more frequently.

 

Still, dosing once a week is more mental gymnastics than the average citizen gets in several years, so if it ain't broke ...
