(1) Start with a low dose.
Never take more than 1 gram of dry magic mushrooms. Wait for 90 minutes. If you feel OK and want to intensify the experience you could take some more.
(2) Make sure there is nothing on your head for the next 24 hours.
No work, no school, no visiting of friends or family, no care for children or pets, JUST NO NOTHING!
(3) Make sure to trip in a relaxed environment.
Busy environments with lots of people and noise may cause an information overload. Choose an environment where you are not bothered by people not involved in the experience. Choose a calm, natural, preferably rural place, where you can enjoy the wonders of nature. Choose a place that is familiar to you, a place you know and where you feel save.
(4) Make sure to trip with people you know, like and trust.
Preferably there should be someone around that is not involved in the experience.

How often is too much to take shrooms? Is it too much to use once weekly, monthly? What is the limit to how much you should use them? (Dizzyskyline)
Difficult to answer. It's a personal thing. I would say: once a month is the MAXIMUM.
How many shrooms is 1 gram?
Depends. For Psilocybe Cubensis (dry) it is about 1 mushroom. In Holland 2.5 / 3 grams of dry PC were being sold (no 25 to 30 grams fresh) as a 1 trip dose. So take 1/3.
What are the hallucinations like (example)?
Hallucinations (seeing objects that are not there at all) may be experienced only with a very large dose. Illusions an 'visuals'are better words: patterns superimposed on what you are looking at; changing of / more intens colors;
How long does a magic mushroom trip last?
4 to 8 hours
Do colors tend to merge with eachother?
Yes, could be.
What are the physical sideffects of magic mushrooms (nausea, bloodshot eyes,...)?
Large pupils, a bit of stressy feeling in the neck, sometimes nausea
Is it possible to control yourself while tripping on magic mushrooms?
Depends on the dose, normally YES, but "you have to go with the flow".
What happens when you get realllllllllllly fucked up?
You'll get very frightened, confused and paranoid.
What are the flashbacks like?
I never had one.
What should i avoid doing when im trippin?
Avoid crowded places, things on your mind, things you have to do, being troubled about anything.
What is happening at the "Peak" of this drug?
All effects are at their maximum, not really different from going up and going down. More intens.
Hi, i was woundering if you could give me some advice. i've got 3 grams of mexican shrooms and 2.5g of thai shrooms. how many people do you think that could, possible get on a strong trip?
2 to 5 people. Thai is stronger than cubensis. Everyone take his part (1/2 , 1/3, 1/4, 1/5) of the Cubensis and the Thai.
What's the best way to calm down a trip,
There is no real way to calm down. Going to a calm and quiet environment might help. Taking a benzodiapine (valium, seresta, ..) might have a calming effect.
This question is more of a point to the people you fucked up on mushrooms. "guys it does get easyer, take one day at a time, i spent 2 yrs living in fear, never thinking it would stop, but it does, might take a while but be proud of the little steps you make, most of the stuff is in your own head. and only you can get outta it, just give it time and dont do anymore drugs until you have healed enough to feel ready." thank you dick for a good website,
What's your feeling on salvia Divinorum
I do not like salvia to much. did it 3/4 times. very weird. Immobilizing in high dose. Completely different than magic mushrooms.
