Hi, I am new as you probably guess, read the rules but still not sure if my questions is viable.

I live in Europe and need somebody in "real life" to help me to start, cause it would be my first time. Unfortunately I got not close friends, let alone friends on this sort of paths Is there sort of community or base somewhere that I could ask for help please?. :tinfoil:

Thanks

Moanstrength :biggrin:

Welcome, and everything you need to know is on this site. Plus, some of the finest growers are here to answer any questions. The best advise I can give you is to start with the PF tek, and do lots of reading in the archives. 

 

A golden rule to follow is, tell no one in real life what you are doing. No exceptions. No matter how tempting it is, don't.

Thanks for your answer, I read a lot of scientific papers and have not have the time to read the literature here. I asked everybody around and nobody gave any information anyway. Perhaps is my fashion?, do I look too serious?, I mean all that I want is to treat my illness with a natural occurrence remedy. My normal medication when working is making me dumb. The doctors here are not open minded like in Austria, I don't understand why Mushrooms are associated with bad things when at the moment are being used to stop addition and treat depression.

Because they are illegal. Want to find a willing Dr? Go to Austria. It will be a rare thing to find a Dr. willing to work with this almost anywhere else in the world. Yeah, it sucks. But that is just how it is until laws and opinions are changed.

I am going to try under supervision a very small dosis. If I result not to be more mad that I already are, I will go with the second doses (same that the clinical trials). Hoping that the effect last for 3 months as I need myself urgently around. So I am expecting to put myself together with the help of this medicine. Of course I will be telling my doctor about, he can not tell anybody because his medical oath. Besides doctors need to know if this is working, there are lots of patients on the clinics being doped without any awareness nor hope.

SmokeyTheGardener here. I'm new so I hope I'm posting in the proper place.
I'm about to start my first grow. I had access to fresh mushrooms before and have never taken dried ones. I have some questions. Dosing. When I was much younger I would eat 3 or 4 decent sized fresh picked mushrooms,maybe 4 or 5 inches across and only the caps. These were fully opened. Are the stems as potent as the caps? Is it true that they're more potent right before they open? I've read a lot about weight. When fresh or dried is it better to go by weight for a dose? How much dried would you take for a full throttle,shoot for the moon trip? How much for a micro-dose? Storage. Is it best to dry and store in freezer? Has anyone tried to take some colonized substrate and make a patch in a shady part of the yard? It's been about 25 years since my last trip. Hoping it will be as enlightening and beneficial now as it was then. I took my first few trips, almost fifty years ago,the summer after eighth grade. Quite an eye-opener. Never did micro-dosing but that seems like a good continuing practice although I will still want to occasionally shoot for the moon. Thanks to anyone that can help with these questions.

I too am new here and seem to be looking down the same path as you. I have tried everything from big pharma and am returning to mother nature. I am deep down the rabbit hole on research about neurogenesis, and for the first time in decades I feel hopeful. To genericly reply to some of your questions, I would recommend researching paul stamets, and Google "hero's journey"... I will be eagerly awaiting replies from some of the legends I have found on this site... And with all my heart I wish you the best on your journey...

The rule of thumb is when cracker dry the mushrooms weigh one tenth of when fresh. Weighing fresh might be less accurate as you may not know how fresh and how much weight might already be lost to beginning to dry out.

Regarding dose, it's species dependant. Let's assume we're talking about some strain of Cubensis though; then 5 dry grams is generally accepted to be the full experience. Around 1 dry gram is threshold I think. Microdose is 0.1g to 0.4g depending on your sensitivity. I'm sure someone else will chime in to help answer some of your other questions.

And of course, welcome along! :)
