mushrooms tend to grow in cycles, i guess. At least for me they do. Nock up jars, jars fully colonized, cased or fruiting and then on to the trip. I guess they space themselves out perfectly.

I trip about 4-6 times a year and 2 grams rock my world.

I don't know why I am hard headed with shrooms, so basically I've come under the conclusion that mine suck, lol...

7-9 dry grams is my usual dose anymore b/c I tend to not get visuals on anything less...

I go a week between trips, just because of work, when I was younger, 2 or 3 days was good. But I don't go too much over 2.5g, maybe the amount of your dose has something to do with it? maybe bigger dose takes a longer time to lower your tolerance?

I actually experimented once for a month....Shroomed every 3 days for a month strait. Took 3.5-4g each trip. I didn't notice a loss in potency between trips. I love vacation time.

I wanted to test the whole "You need two weeks off inbetween because of tolerance". For me at least the two week off thing wasn't true.

Needless to say, I took a long break from tripping after that.

Lately I have had lots of time and lots of shrooms--so about every 4-5 days. I have developed some tolerance, though, so I went from 2 grams per trip to 3.5 to 4 grams for the same effects. I probably do them too much, but I guess my nagual is good, as I have only had good trips.

I havn't tripped in a while and the last time I did I ate an 1/8 and had a sweet time, Should I eat an 1/8 again? I grew my own this time and theire treaure coasts. But i'm not sure on how much I shoudl take.

The 1/8 really did me in and I had a great time.

If they are around they usually get eaten. More than once a week and the tolerence goes up. Kind of think of it as 'going to church"
Trying to move to a lunar schedule though. Full moon for Running wildly through the night, New moon for DEEP introspection...

For me, tolerance is highly dosage based. I can get off three days in a row - on a small dose (.5-1g). If I dose hearty (2-5g), I get barely anything the next day unless I triple the previous day's dosage. When I'm feeling heroic (5-10g), it's usually 14-20 days between excursions, or I'm just wasting materials (personal experience, your mielage may vary).

Best way to get off well 3 days in a row: use a different active compound each day. If you go shrooms, LSD, E, DMT, you can trip balls every day for quite a while. Again, though, that's just personal experience...

Then again, if you eat enough, you won't want to trip again for a while!

Well i wouldn't advise doing hallucinogens on a daily basis. It will cause a chemical imbalance in the brain that can thus cause bad side effects. Now I'm not saying it will definately happen, but it is a possibility. I wouldn't do it anymore than once a week, but would advise once a month. I trip 2 or 3 times a year. Sometimes less. When I was younger(23 now) I tripped alot on different hallucinogens on a weekly basis, and it led to bad side effects. So i go many months between.

even when it only took 3-4 grams to get me off it would still take about 3 weeks before I could really feel it again. Not like it really matters that much though cause I usually only trip about 6 times a year

I agree with that and the other people who mentioned that small doses dont build up tolerance as much as big doses. The chemical in the brain that produces those euphoric revalations can become slightly depleted after a good dosing. Chronic usage can leave one with a long-term (3-6 months?) chemical imbalance of the brain due to a more outright depletion, the symptoms of which could be depression or worse.

IMO your best bet is to trip only on the weekends or once a month (especially if you are a big doser). Experimenting with small doses to test potency and such between trips is no big deal. But again, going for a full blown trip on a daily basis will bite you in the ass.

But what if you deeply enjoy getting bitten on the ass?

Personally, I have been consuming trace quantites of certain halucinogenic chems near daily for quite a while now. I wouldn't give up my weak Amanita tea morning ritual for the world. Makes my yoga and meditation much more effective. I smoke 'da herb pretty much constantly as well.

But I'm a twisted dude, as has been roundly demonstrated before...different strokes for different folks. Stick in your comfort zone, Perrch01, wherever it may be. If ya start to get wiggy, cut back fo sho.
