What is your favorite psychedelic?

Asked by El_Cadejo (34484points) May 12th, 2008

Please do not turn this into a pros and cons of taking drugs discussion. Id be more than happy to discuss it but not in this question ask another one. This is just a question is for those who par take in psychedelics. I ask you what is your favorite and why?

Beaked Alien brand whiskey, similar to Absinthe. Also the “Scalmari”, vodka with raw octopus. The octopus ferments into a psychedelic substance when left to soak in the vodka.

Psylocibin worked for me in the past. Permanently opened my mind.

Be mindful of set and setting.

psyla's avatar

How is your mind now different from what it used to be? By “open” do you mean more open-minded?

MDMA aka ecstasy. Drop some of that and weed in the middle east, give some to our leaders…. Better world instantly

Bub's avatar

Ganja, mon!!!

El_Cadejo's avatar

@thehaight, mikebrowne, bub Why?

@psyla yes more open minded but you also seem to have a much larger respect for nature and life in general after taking mushrooms.

PupnTaco's avatar

@ psyla, maybe not entirely open-minded (I’m a skeptic and agnostic/atheist), more like realizing the scope of infinity. Being OK with not having an answer for everything. Noticing details. Seeing beyond the mundane.

TheHaight's avatar

@über: because in my book its safe, makes me feel relaxed and chill, I never over-do it and know when to stop, makes me laugh, better than alcohol, etc.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@thehaight have you ever experimented with any others?

TheHaight's avatar

no, and I don’t really want too. I’m just fine with the pakalolo. To be honest I’m to chicken too!!

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

all of them, dramamine is a really good one

TheHaight's avatar

isnt that for stomach aches???

El_Cadejo's avatar

Its for motion sickness. Dramamine or Dimenhydrinate isnt really a psychedelic though. Its a deliriant.

@TheHaight theres nothing really to be afraid of, as long as your in a good setting and with cool people you’ll have a great time. Nature walks on shrooms are amazing. Last time i took them me and my friend walked like 5 miles lol.

I really dont think its possible for me to have a bad trip. It only happens when you fight the drug. All you have to do is remember your on a mind altering drug and its not real.

tupara's avatar

Magic Mushrooms for the outdoors; where I live you find them in rugged, beautifully scenic places. MDA for going out in the city.

TheHaight's avatar

well, it is possible for a bad trip if you over do it.
Like shrooms; my boyfriend didn’t know that it doesn’t hit you as fast as weed and took to much. He saw demons, and scary stuff and even vomitted!
So then, what is the right amount if I did want to try shrooms?

xxporkxsodaxx's avatar

@uber, like sometimes when I OD on it like I see and hear things

scamp's avatar

There is no “right amount” for shrooms. You can get just as high on a tiny piece as you can on a handful. I’ve seen people have alot of fun on them, and I’ve seen those same people totally freaked out. You can never really tell with them. If you are afraid of what will happen before doing them, there’s a good chance you won’t have a good trip on them. You can only experience good things if you are totally relaxed, and with people you can really trust if something goes wrong.

El_Cadejo's avatar

Ive seen scary stuff on trips before as well. One time i was on LSD and my friend said something about zombies and all i could think about was zombies in my room(i was alone). It was pretty crazy because i was seeing them like attacking me but it was like 3rd person perspective. Strange thing is i enjoyed every minute of it cause i knew it was just the drugs acting on me. I guess its just how you are as a person.

Like scamp said its hard to judge with mushrooms because differing potencies and different people take dosages differently. A good starter dose is 1/16th of an ounce or a little less if your afraid of a bad trip. Then once you know your comfortable with that doseage move up. I’ll usually take around an 8th.

I like to take mushrooms at night time and then go out on a walk. It also helps to smoke a bit when your coming up. This helps fight the nausea and also greatly amplifies the trip.

iriemuffin's avatar

LSD for a true pyschadelic, but ganja is the favorite.

tupara's avatar

@TheHaight – it can be very difficult to judge the right dosage for mushrooms; different types have different strength and strength can vary a lot in the same species. One indication of strength is the amount of blue colour that develops after you pick them. The best way is probably to have an experienced person give you your first trip, or experiment with dosage by starting off small. We have two types where I live, liberty caps and gold tops. you can take 100 liberty caps and have a good time but with gold tops sometimes 20 is good and sometimes 10 can be almost too much.

TheHaight's avatar

Wow, interesting answers. I think I’d be still too nervous to take them now. But I think its also Important to he with people you are comfortable with, and for someone that is sober to watch over you,. Taking them while taking walks at night sounds fun über, like an adventure. I just don’t think I’d be ready…yet. But I’ll get back to ya when I do, haha :)

Randy's avatar

Extacy is amazing, which to me is what makes it so scary. I’ve tried a lot of drugs that I fell in love with and for that reason, will never take again. I can’t say I’ve ever had a substance addiction, but I know it could be very easy for me to aquire one with certain subtances. Now and days, I try to stick to things that are legal, and that I will have an easier time controlling.

buster's avatar

DMT!!!!!! or synthetic mescaline as a close second. doing nitrous while your tripping is pretty wild too.

Trance24's avatar

MDA , because it was the happiest time of my life. Just a wonderful drug to do, to get you out of that reality funk. Plus I walked on the ceiling. =]

scamp's avatar

@TheHaight I think you are making the right choice. It’s not for everybody. And I wouldn’t want you to have a bad experience just because you are curious.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@TheHaight I completely agree with scamp. Dont do it unless you know your ready for it and really want to. You have to go into trips with a good mindset or things can turn ugly.

I have to say though LSD is by far my favorite. Just the way i think and feel under its influence is amazing. I want badly to try DMT though. I have a feeling once i do it will become an instant favorite. Marijuana is the one i use the most though.I also dont really seem to trip that hard no matter what i take until i smoke a little. Its like the catalyst for tripping to me.

TheHaight's avatar

thanks scamp and über, you guys are awesome. ;)

@randy; I agree with you. My boyfriend has tried just about every drug, and has fell in love with them… That is why he will most likely never do them again because it can get addicting.

iceblu's avatar

I enjoy mushrooms alot. To be able to open up the world and see it in a whole new prospective, to interact with everything, and have a self-satisfied enjoyment of life.

@uberbatman: sorry about the zombie comment, i so didn’t mean that =X

@TheHaight Yes, doing some mushys and come walking down my street with me and Uber, it would be a whole new era for you. I was skeptical about the whole,“life change” but it honestly opened my eyes to a better place. And take as long as you want, don’t be forced into taking them, if you have a hell-yeah attitude going in, your going to have a hell-yeah time when they kick it, trust me. It took me 2 real trys till i actually was able to completely know my potential with how much to take. So just take it slow, have have a good time, thats my advice. =]

@Randy & Trance24 & chris6137 My second favorite, for all the reasons, feel, mood, sight, everything is awesome. G’s Up, Hoe’s Down

scamp's avatar

@Iceblu When you were walking stoned with uber, did this happen to you?

El_Cadejo's avatar

@scamp no, but we were walking down a dark road and heard this loud noise (sounding like a horse screaming or something) and iceblu clung to me :P

TheHaight's avatar

Hah!!! Did he really? That’s hilarious.

El_Cadejo's avatar

Yea. I must admit though the sound was rather frightening at first coupled with the fact your on psychedelics but still LOL. That was the point we decided lets turn around and start walking back towards the house. All in all awesome night though. ^_^

scamp's avatar

That’ so funny uber! My ex husband was tripping once and walking in the city. He thought he was really popular because about twenty cars drove past him honking their horns. It turned out to be a wedding procession!

iceblu's avatar

@uberbatman….you so would…you would bring that up, i was scared shitless, it sounded like a horse just got slughtered 5 feet from us. If you were tripping and heard that, what would you do? ( that was a rhetorical question to you, don’t answer it uber =D )

@TheHaight yes i did, and you probably would too. Then uber and i speed walked for like 5 mins, then walked the rest of the mile back to my house.

@scamp As much as i would have LOVED to look down and see my feet being blu, it didn’t, maybe one day it will happen, ill let you know when and if it does. =] Very nice by the way, i enjoyed that.

Trance24's avatar

@iceblue hehe I remember when uber brought that up. Or how about the time you mysteriously levitated yourself onto a perch surrounded by water, and didn’t have a drop on you?

iceblu's avatar

@trance24 I guess everyone loves talking about iceblu wooo we all have stories lets tell the world. ahahhaha but yes, i don’t remember how it happened but i remember just coming outta a deep trance and looking down with water all round me, huddled up into a ball on this telephone stump. It was weird, but the time i was zoned out was amazing. =]

scamp's avatar

@iceblu Feel the love! ha ha. You’re a good sport. Thanks for the laughs.

El_Cadejo's avatar

Hey iceblu remember that one time when you…...... wait nevermind i got nothing. The worst experience ive ever had with any drug had to have been the night i had to spend in the emergency room when i was ripped out of my mind.

Im pretty allergic to peanuts. Not like instant throat closing death like most people but its pretty bad. I usually have about an hour grace period before the effects start so im able to get benadryl or something so im fine. Thing is i ate some stonefish in chinatown and didnt know it was in there.(Yes i know i should have asked. Shut up. Sad thing is i asked about my girlfriends food but not mine. Im retarded i know.)Anyway there were nuts in it. I didnt taste it. After dinner we headed over to iceblu’s house. Well i smoked an entire bowl of keif from a gravity bong which got me fucked up. What it also did was elevated my heart rate a lot. About 3 minutes later the peanut allergy kicked in. I was white as a ghost like even my lips. Tried taking some benadryl that didnt work so decided itd be best to go to the hospital. Iceblu drove which i think he liked cause he was going about 90. It was pretty crazy though because by the time we were close the the hospital my vision was getting really blurry and i felt like i was going to black out. We go inside and had to deal with the whole triage shit meanwhile im standing there shaking back and forth ready to faint. Iceblu alerted someone of this and they simply said “ah dont worry about him he’ll be fine” and walked off. After that they got me into a bed. Now i am laying there shaking feeling like im going into a seizer and i have someone asking me my mothers social security number because they cant treat me until they get all the information (god i love America). Im pretty sure i made everyone there hate me that night because i was yelling at them. They finally got me hooked up to some IVs and i was feeling better within an hour. Then the doctor came in and told me “we need to take some urine for a drug test, we want to make sure it wasnt a drug that caused this” Fucking great. Just what i need right now. Somehow it all turned out fine though and was out by 4am. Not a fun night.(i most likely left out a few parts of that story like i said i smoked a lot before i got sick plus peanuts make me delusional so it was a pretty fucked up night.)

That story turned out a lot longer than i originally expected ah well.

TheHaight's avatar

I HATE emergency rooms. über that is some story! Glad youre okay! I used to be allergic to peanuts to, when I was little. Luckily, I grew out of it because I LOVE peanuts (sorry, I’m not trying to rub it in).

iceblu's avatar

Oh what a night that was.

MissAnthrope's avatar

I thought about this for a while and the truth is, I like LSD and mushrooms equally, for different reasons.

pinky134's avatar

I’d have to go with salvia combined with a lot of pot. I like salvia because the trips are so short. You can have a bad trip, but it’s only going to last 10–20 minutes, instead of 12 hours of pure hell. Also it has the effect of making me think that I“m not high. After getting totally blown on pot I can smoke a couple of hits of salvia and suddenly my head is clear, coordination is back, and I’m not hungry. NOT. It’s all an illusion. I’m still totally high. I just think that my behaviour is normal. This isn’t making sense. But. Salvia. For those short intense rides.

Ria777's avatar

liquid gravity. it looks like black metallic oil. you can ingest it or take it through your nose. and for a few hours the whole world turns like light vibrations, including you.

Ria777's avatar

@uberbatman, completely different. this also goes by the street name of “ape food” or “soul dwarf”.

El_Cadejo's avatar

@Ria777 what is the chemical compound? not the slang names.

Ria777's avatar

I should probably not string you along any more. I made all that up. (BTW, when I meant liquid gravity, I meant, literally liquid gravity.)

El_Cadejo's avatar

@Ria777 wtf was the point of making something up? Kind of an asshole move no?

btw GHB is commonly referred to as liquid gravity

Ria777's avatar

@uberbatman, apparently I know more than I thought I know.

helso's avatar

i love bud the most. its just awesome. can smoke by yourself and have fun, and also with other people. but when going out pills are the best. (aka ecstasy)
also smoking hash is good fun too.

SquirrelEStuff's avatar

@helso

Hash is nothing but the active ingredient in marijuana.

MissAnthrope's avatar

This is true, but from my experience, the high is not the same.

El_Cadejo's avatar

yea smoking hash is a whole different experience in itself.

wildpotato's avatar

@uberbatman: DMT is nice. It is interesting that it is one of the many chemicals released in the brain as you die, so that using it may give a glimpse of that feeling – which is quite nice. Intense, but not uncomfortable heat spreading down your spine from the base of your neck. And wonderful visuals. I got it best when I smoked yopo (which is legal to obtain and, I believe, to use but not to grow – check out some herbal sites online) instead of taking capsules. Yopo is a fruit from south America that is made into snuff, and it’s used in shamanistic ceremonies and ritual purgings. The only negative is that to do it right entails smoking till you puke once or twice, but this is not a big deal if you aren’t afraid. It lasts about 45 min – on Wikipedia, they say it can last a bit longer. But, my favorite? Definitely acid.

likipie's avatar

I’ve not experimented with many psychedelic drugs, but acid seems to be my favorite so far. It’s always produced a good trip for me and it’s fairly easy to get a hold of.
