Im really glad i was able to see this. It saddens me deeply how some people see this fungus as a way of getting fucked up. In my eyes this fungus discourages such behaviour and heals the soul.

I used to see it as a way to get fucked up.  In a way I still do, but not like I did before.  I think it's ok to take substances because they make you feel good, but my last experience with shrooms altered the context within how I find it acceptable.  If I wanted to get high just for the sake of getting ripped out of my gourd there are plenty of other options.  Shrooms can provide a wonderful high but really shine as a substance that can teach us about ourselves and the world within us or around us.  They function remarkably as a tool for exploring ones consciousness. 

 

I've always held hallucinogens in high regard but I really understood the power of  shrooms with my last trip about 6 years ago.  I was "just wanting to get fucked up" and was offered the chance to split a bag with someone.  I think it was supposed to be an eighth, which I've never had trouble eating on my own so I remember thinking "Shit, half an eigth..maybe this will be fun.  Who knows.  Worst case I probably won't feel any worse than I do now".  It had been 4 or 5 years since my last trip at that point.

 

I ate my share, went into the theater, then settled in to watch some Tron Legacy.  As the trip came on lightly I felt just content.  I felt good, euphoric, happy...at peace.  I never tripped super hard that night and it was arguably the best trip I've ever had.  I had a good night with family, watched movies and stayed up talking while life's burdens were lifted off of my mind.

 

Remembering this small but critical moment is what sparked my interest in them again, but this time as a medicine to put my mind right.

For those of you who have chosen to microdose every other day, how has it helped you? Would you recommend it to others? Please describe

im not sure every other day is right for me but one microdose a week seems kinda perfect for me right now, not sure yet.

I appreciate the kind words apex. I think that mushrooms can really help us see our problems. I have not smoked ever since the trip and i do feel more awake as well. My focus and motivation has also gone up. I plan on taking a long break from the herb and only smoking on occasion.

      I am confused on this comment. When the mushrooms grow they won’t all grow at the same time. I am confused. I don’t pick them pick right before the vail breaks and before they release spores. Can u explain the answer a little more for this newbie?  Thank ya!!

      Hooray, I can finally chip in!  Let me start right out by saying: this is a very cool idea. I have been musing for a while on how to create a cubensis growth system that places psilocin production under positive selective pressure, without having to actually assay every individual, and what you've come up with is by far the best route I've considered. I definitely think it's worth a try. I'm not as sure as you that psilocin / psilocybin are actually involved in the HSR; I think it's just as likely that it's the increased trp flux that improves heat tolerance through downstream components, and the increased psiloc* levels are just a simple consequence of more trp. Regardless... the question is how to actually translate this idea into a selective program. This is where I have to do more reading, as my experience is that this is quite organism-specific. I think the most ground would be covered by multiple cycles of mutagenesis-growth-selection, but the specifics of mutagen and selective pressure are very hand-wavy right now. But in summary -- nice find!

      Ouch, glad you're ok. I've worked in both microbiology and cell biology labs. In micro they flame and don't use gloves. In cell biology they use gloves (and a shitload of 70% EtOH) and don't flame.  Never the two shall meet -- I've been reliably told that a Class II cabinet + fire => a very bad time.

      Ha you have a knack for finding these cool things.  Apt username!  Do you know if they've published anywhere?  If it's the E field alone that's doing it, that just might be practical to manipulate for a hobbyist.  If it's the current though, that'd be more of a pain.
