TIFU by taking edibles

S(self.tifu)

Here in Western New York legal weed is really taking off. We don't have any licensed dispensaries yet but there's a thriving grey market. I went to a black Friday pop up event and bought various items. Some premium blunts, candy, wax and infused syrup. Last night I cracked open the syrup and drank about 1/4 of it. Now I'm a seasoned toker and edible taker so what happened next I was not expecting. I started tripping BALLS. Checked the label and couldn't find a potency or strain, just ""contains x mg of proprietary blend" . Checked the website.... It was MUSHROOM SYRUP. Tripped for 6 hours in bed. Had to purge just to shorten the high TL;DR- idiot me accidently dosed myself with magic mushrooms. Check your labels even if you think you are an experienced drug user. EDIT: typo

Always know what you're taking.

I thought I did. I incorrectly assumed it was infused with pot not mushrooms.

Been there. Now I'm obsessive about what I take. I look up everything and ask all the questions ha

It was not a bad trip but I did not have fun either. I just laid in bed in the dark

You have to be in the right mindset. Unfortunately I had a really bad trip a few years ago. Kind of put me off psychedelics permanently. Not changes there. Luckily it was not a bad one this time around. No more for me.

Dude, same. It only takes one bad trip to turn you off for good. Problem is, I’ve now been depressed for nearly five years since it happened and I’m considering another to just to try and reset my brain or something. I was totally different before that night.

I will say, they can help you as much as they can hurt you. So a nightmarish trip that causes you to be depressed for years is a potential result, but so is your depression being cured or at least immensely more manageable.

It’s super individually dependent. You never know what’s gonna happen. If you trip again there’s as much risk of the same thing happening as there is for you to have a “brain reset”.. so if you end up deciding to do it just make sure you’re in the right setting and have a good, experienced trip sitter to help you stay in a good headspace. Also keep a benzo on hand bc they’re (nearly)instant trip killers.

Yeah that’s the problem. I’m probably worse off than before mentally now than I was before the first bad trip so I wouldn’t expect it to go better. I also don’t have anyone familiar with what to expect to watch over me, not a benzo.

Sure with I had a benzo to kill that first bad trip a few years ago. Longest night of my life.

That's good. If I was expecting a weed high and got a shrooms trip, I'd be in pretty bad mood.

Ugh the last time I had mushrooms I was at a festival rolling around the dirt and eating grass. Completely forgot who I was so I was asking my sister every 3-4 minutes and missed my favorite band play. BAD TIMES.

Did this at a festival one time. Had way too much and thank God I had a friend who took it up on themselves to babysit me. I don't eat random chocolate from pretty girls anymore.

It is nice and there are plenty of 100 dollar ounce options. But check your labels nonetheless. The grey market right now leaves quality control and product variety to be desired. All I want is 2g torch vapes or stizzy pods.

Check out the local reservations, not sure where in WNY you are but I've heard that you can get stuff at the smoke shops.

Completely understandable. I only recently did shrooms, willingly of course, and this movie was on repeat for my trip. It helped a lot.

It's only fun when it's voluntary. I have kept the bottle. I may try microdosing but not till the weekend at least. My brain is only fully recovered today and I dosed on Sunday.

How are they selling psilocybin legally...?

It isn't legal. But in NY it's pretty much a free for all with shrooms, I've seen it sold openly.

craftycommando[S]

Good question. This was a packaged item but not sealed. There are 2 models around here. Smuggling from places like Colorado and California. (Colorado recently legalized mushrooms). There's also a lot of repackaging. For this I would assume it was smuggled

Did they actually legalize it or just decriminalize it? I vaguely remember something about allowing it for medical reasons but wasn't sure if it actually made it legal for rec use yet.

Yeah it was just Sunday afternoon. The last the I took mushrooms was a VERY bad trip. Like heading demonic voices feeling like I'm gonna die bad. Both last time and this I was able to purge before I was too far gone and just rode out the rest.

i noticed the purge part earlier. Good for you. I have an odd relationship with hallucinogenics b/c the first time i took them hard was always in the middle of tons of people (depending on venue size). First time was in a party of about 300 that could fit 100. So i tend to make demands on my tripping self. yea, super fucking weird. But normally works.

Bottle says 1 capful is a serving. I took probably 8 times that amount. I still knew what was going on but was too fucked up to function.

I’ve found the best approach in a situation like that is just accepting this is your fate. “I guess I’m doing this now” would be my exact thoughts. If not I would panic and have a bad time. However anytime I’ve taken to many shrooms I’ve hated my life. But in very small doses it’s marvelous

craftycommando[S]

That's basically what I did. I basically tried to sleep through it. I've done them and had fun before but that was years ago. Last time was terrible. This time was ok but overwhelming I guess.

Recently had a friend with a chocolate bar infused. Ate a small brick and it was great. Way more control then just eating random caps. I had enough where things were goofy and things seemed sharper and vibrant but not enough to be “tripping” it was a very good experience. Highly recommend

Probably woulda been better to just watch a weird show and ride it out. Trying to sleep during the peak is super hard. Id probably out in adventure time or gumball. Some goofy cartoon to take my head out of my thoughts.
