What It’s Like to Mix Shrooms and Weed

By Luna / August 15, 2017

So for those of you about to embark on this journey of self discovery, I would recommend you take shrooms and smoke weed along the way.

What are shrooms?

Well according to the wikipedia definition they are “Psilocybin mushrooms, also known as psychedelic mushrooms, are a polyphletic group of mushrooms that contain the psychedelic compounds psilocybin, psilocin and baeocystin. Common colloquial terms include magic mushrooms and shrooms.”

In layman’s terms, shrooms is a fungus that when consumed produces psychedelic and hallucinogenic effects.

Let’s go back in time and travel back to the first time I did shrooms.  This was back in college and I always wanted to try psychedelic drugs because, when else would I have the free time and no responsibilities?  College was the time and place to experiment.

I asked a few friends that showed some interest in joining me and planned a day to just trip balls.  We all planned for one weekend, each bought our own eighth of shrooms (about 3.5 grams) and we all chipped in on the half ounce of weed.  I had two friends visiting from out of town, one friend that attended my school. And one friend that was just going to watch over us to make sure we didn’t freak out.  This was it! I was super excited to experience something out of the norm.

We Start Our Trip

My friends arrive early morning around 9 am ish and we get all of our supplies ready for the day.  We check out the how big the heads are on the shrooms we bought.  They were all decently sized, my friend Kara* and I decide we don’t want to do the full eighth and give part of our shrooms to our guys friends that we are with.  Kara* is very petite to begin with so she was a little hesitant about taking as much as everyone else. I did take a little more than her, but definitely not the full 3.5 grams.

Kara* and I decide to eat our shrooms in a salad with Italian vinaigrette dressing.  This was probably the best idea we had.  The guys just eat them whole without any food to chase it down.  After everything was consumed we waited, and while we waited we started smoking and trying to find something to watch on tv.  We end up putting on Wallace and Gromit just to start things out.

Things Start to Get Weird

I was very used to the feeling of being drunk or high, but once the shrooms started to kick in, this was an entirely new feeling I had never felt before. I knew I was feeling it because the second I looked down at my phone it looked as if I could reach into it and pull anything I wanted out of it.  The home screen just looked very infinite to me.  I turned to look at the TV and the Wallace and Gromit that I had known and grown up to love was something completely different.  Everything in the movie was very gloomy and very darkening to me.  All I knew at that moment was I needed to be in the light and somewhere warm.  About now everyone is feeling it and we decide to smoke more.  Smoking weed definitely helped heighten and lengthen out trip.

My friend Jared* and I had a very good understanding of how we were feeling and how we were making connections with life.  We eventually went outside to be with nature.  Being out there made me one hundred percent comfortable because everything was beautiful. We ended up taking a blanket out there and just laying in the grass and staring up at the trees.  Our thoughts were never ending and I was and still am in “awe” from how clearly I could think.  I wanted to see how far I could go with my thoughts. What I learned is that you just accept everything for what it is and just see how you can better the world by first starting with yourself.  In the end I had  a great trip, it was everything I expected.

Bad Trip

I wish I could say the same for my friend Kara*. Before the trip she had a lot of anxiety and bad thought that they kind of over took her.  I tried to make the best of her trip by keeping her mind occupied.  But if she was tripping as hard, then I know there was really nothing I could do to completely keep those thoughts away.  Eventually, she was able to get a hold of her self and be content.

My Body & Visuals

For me, my body felt like a magnet to the ground.  It wasn’t easy standing up and trying to get place to place without getting the feeling that the earth was pulling my body down.  The best position I could be in was just lying on my back on the ground outside just enjoying the sun and nature.  As for visualize, everything moves, not so much in a sickening was, but in a very beautiful way.  You can see the way that light interacts with colors and how shades form.  A lot of the time everything looks like the ocean to me, but if you concentrated on something long enough you can start to see very small details change into something completely different.  The weed helped keep this feeling going for a longer time which I loved.

Overall, from my experience I would recommend doing this to everyone.  I would suggest that you be in a good spot in life to take it. Any troubles you are dealing with that cause you grave anxiety or stress will definitely lead to a bad trip.
