I take Mirtazapine (generic for Remeron) at bedtime to sleep better (I still don't sleep well, but it helps). Mirtazapine is an antagonist of 5-HT2A receptors, while psilocybin (indeed, all hallucinogens) is a 5-HT2A receptor agonist. There is, in fact, direct evidence that the two effects are in opposition. Which may explain why, when I downed 5 g of cubes as a tea a few weeks ago, I became pleasantly high, and the clouds were extra beautiful, but I was not tripping. That was my second 'shroom-based adventure. The first time, I ate 5 g and did trip: eidetic imagery was extra colorful. Although keeping my balance was a challenge, I thought, even then, that I could have eaten more.
Now I have plenty of dried cubes. I think I will try 8 g as tea.
