So not sure how to even write a trip report in terms that can be easily explained, or from a perspective that non shroomers would understand. Mainly because I'm new to this myself lol.
Shroom: Psilocybe Cubensis - Golden Teacher mushrooms
Dosage: 2 quarter sized caps, 1 dime sized cap, 3 - 1.5" to 2" stems. (I didn't weigh it so not sure of the weight sorry 😢).
The story starts off around 930 or 10 at night. I got home and decided it was early enough to take a trip whether it be a small one or a "let's go to the moon" it didn't matter to me.
So I ate my shrooms with my supper and then took two thc tinctures and vaped some distillate.
It was a kind of boring and quiet night so I got comfortable on the couch and was messing around on my phone trying to find something interesting to watch. I can always tell when they start to kick in because the colors on my phone get brighter and sharper, plus the lettering gets sharper as well.
(As I'm writing this, I should have tried to find the movie Heavy Metal, it seems like it could be an interesting one to watch, or maybe not lol).
After a while a strong body high kicked in and I felt pretty numb. I wanted to watch something entertaining so I tried to find a movie but all of them seemed boring and nothing piqued my interest that would go along with my buzz.
I ended up finding a few really good music videos that seemed to grab my body and soul. I've probably ate some shrooms maybe 8 or 9 times total but this time was the first time trying golden teachers. Also, this was the first time I felt like my body and mind were reacting to the music on a cellular level. It was pretty strange but awesome at the same time. I was in somewhat disbelief that the music was affecting me in such a way.
After a couple hours, the shrooms were still in high gear but I was having trouble keeping entertained lol, (well I was perfectly content in listening to the same songs over and over but had to find other means as to not let the shoots go to waste) so I tried to find a movie to watch but nothing seemed interesting. I played a video game but I also lost interest quickly.
I wonder if losing interest is a normal occurrence? To me, it seems to be that way, especially if it isn't mind expanding.
I saw color enhanced type visuals and saw movement out of my peripherals, but nothing too extreme. I did see a lot of circuitry, not metal circuitry, but almost clear but with defined edges.
A few times a cat was really messing with me. A good way to explain it was that it was like the ghosts on super Mario Brothers, he would look at me when I wasn't looking at him, then turn away from me when I was. He would also inch closer to me when I wasn't looking at him. Others in my house witnessed him doing that so I know I wasn't imagining it lol.
If I lied back and closed my eyes I could see even more circuit stuff. But felt really relaxed and almost like I was nothing but energy.
When the intense body buzz and numbness started to taper off, I felt like I was in a really good mood. That feeling lasted all day the next day also.
Of the other shrooms I've tried, the golden teachers were the most intense so far and there really was a kind of spiritual buzz from them. The description fits them perfectly. Sometimes I feel really heavy the next day like my body consumed a lot of energy from the trip, but not at all with these.
I know it doesn't seem like much and there was nothing really crazy that happened except for the in tuneness of body and mind to the music (hard to explain - I wasn't up dancing or grooving haha, but it's almost like you feel the music on a cellular level. Strange) but it was probably one of the best trips or experiences using shrooms so far. I'm so thankful that shrooms were added onto the site!
I still have some left so I hope I can achieve a similar effect the next time. I also have some south American cubensis to try out but that will be a little further out. The SA's have huge stems. So not sure how my dose will be, but thinking 2 full shrooms and then let it ride to see what happens.
I tried making tea a couple times but I think I was too impatient and may not have steeped them long enough.
Thanks for reading!
