Huge doses get a disproportionate amount of attention when trippers share stories. Small doses can rock too, to the point of changing your life at times.

What was your lowest dose that in one session altered your life in some way?

 

For me it was a 2 gram dose of established strength shredded MexiCubes that inexplicably hit me very hard. It broke through some barrier and let me feel love for my father for the first time in my life, up to that point I'd never felt love for anyone. I was very fortunate for that trip because a month and a half later he was dead.

It was also the only time I have ever been visited by a female forest spirit :laugh:

 

I love taking high dose psychedelics several times a year, but healing and development can happen at any dose.

I want to keep watch of this post, mainly because I will try a 2 gram dose initially with GT, and then start developing a microdose schedule. So, any feedback you get here can certainly help me as well. I will eventually be able to share my experiences in the future.

I want to know who I am, but only a little.   I mean, what if I turn out to be something I never imagined?  What would be there where I once imagined myself to be?  What if it never was?

I just want to say that my previous post was a spontaneous and reactive spur of the moment thing.  There's nothing wrong with caution.  I  think the OP's point is that you can't say anything for sure about what a particular dose is going to seem to achieve.   This has certainly been my experience, and I have had large doses of known batches seemingly fall flat, and been surprised by what was intended to be a light recreational amount.  There's more to it than can be measured from a materialist scientific laboratory sterility.  

 

Micro doses are for something else than life altering peak experiences.  That such experiences can be had in many ways, and even in explainable ways, I think requires we just remain open to anything, at any time.  But there will remain a difference in outcome from cracking the door and peeking in, and crashing through the door.  Set and setting always remain the important consideration, whatever.   Fear can be dealt with in many ways, but as a starting point, not a good setting.   Sometimes you have to face it, that you never really  did know what was going on.  If you can't be okay with not knowing, wait until you are.

"Life altering" is a big deal, by definition. A VERY big deal.

 

So for me, my smallest life-altering dose of mushrooms has been 7 grams of cracker-dry (with cubes; with pans it was somewhere around 3g, I think),

 

And the smallest insightful and meaningful dose was ~1 gram (cubes).

Probably my first time of taking them, took about three grams. Not life changing really but opened my mind up to new things. Also a love of mushrooms after. Lol

1 gram of cracker dry Equador last weekend, using lemon tek method to rehydrate and the chewed it all up. For that small amount it was very intense the first few hours. I began doubting everything about getting fucked up on anything. One thing that I noticed since that dose is that hard liquor (my weakness) especially expensive tequila no longer tastes good to me. It actually tastes awful. I’m on day three of being clean of alcohol, maybe this time for good! That shit will kill you.

I know that feeling well. I kind of like it because when the moment of near panic passes I know that I've succeeded in taking enough :laugh:

 

Good work getting off the alcohol! :thumbs_up:

I have just made it over the 1 YR hump off all alcohol with the help of these little guys. Best therapist/sponsor I've ever found. CONGRATULATIONS! That is a big deal, dont let anyone tell you otherwise.

Hey Thirdeyeplants thanks a lot and congrats on a full year. I’ve made it a few months here and there (six months max) but always slipped back. My girlfriend of 17 years grapples with this as well and I feel lucky that she always quits (and starts back) with me. It’s hard because it’s so socially acceptable and my line of work requires a lot of socializing. I know that one of these times it’s going to stick for good. There really is nothing good about it - nothing. I’m going to try micro-dosing a few times a week to be my therapist/sponsor as well!

I know this thread has been quiet for a while, but I am really intrigued by your experience. My allure to plant medicines, as well as the long, hard slog I have put into therapy, really boils down to how difficult I can find it to love at times. I have moments where my defences crumble and I find myself in touch with deep feelings of love and compassion towards others, but I inevitably find myself back to living in my head.

I am curious whether the experience lasted for you? And although a stranger, am really glad that you were able to feel this before your father passed away.

Thanks :smile:

Yes, that experience lasted. Not with the intensity, that would have been overwhelming, but things were easier after that. I was able to take the unpleasantness of the whole situation in stride better and I didn't end up bitter after he died.

I was never an emotional person and 'learning' emotions and sociability is something I still actively work on. That one mushroom experience was somewhat unique, I've explored experiencing beauty, love, and humor with every psychedelic I've used but what opened up capacity for love and empathy most clearly was when I started combining home made THH with pharmahuasca. I wrote more detail about those explorations over on the nexus.

I'm looking forward to exploring mushrooms with harmine+THH next. I haven't tried that yet, perhaps it'll be a key to unlock a new door.

I can really relate to a lot of what you say, both from your posts here and the link to the one over at the Nexus. I have never been officially diagnosed, but I have recently come to see that I have some Asperger's and even some Schizoid traits. My partner would certainly back me up there!

I am in my late 30s and I am still very much learning about appropriate ways to relate to others. There are times where I feel like a computer with legs, such is the analytical approach I tend to take to even the smallest of interactions. I am taking baby steps, but I am finding that spontaneous acts and gestures are slowly becoming more common. As mentioned, therapy and plant medicine use have helped with this. I recently took a 1.5g dose of mushrooms and it was like I was being shown my potential: for that short period I felt completely embodied and in touch with my feelings. It didn't last, but the door was temporarily opened.

Really glad to hear that something from the experience remained for you. I have never heard of THH before. Will look more into it.
