Magic Mushrooms at a Festival
What Is Tripping at a Festival Like?
Listening to your favorite band while tripping at a festival could very well be one of the top experiences of your life. Music takes on a whole new meaning when you’re tripping: the lyrics become more than simply catchy phrases, and the melody can move you to your very soul. Furthermore, not only is your auditory sense going to be enhanced but all the senses. The lights, colours, and movement on stage become more magical, and if there happens to be a fireworks display, you will be blown away.
However, eating shrooms at a festival is not for everyone, and as always preparation is key, so make sure you read on to be fully prepared before committing to tripping at a festival.
Should I Trip for My First Time at a Festival?
Of course, this is your life, and only you get to decide how to live it. That being said, we don’t recommend that your first time trying magic mushrooms be at a festival. Once you take psilocybin mushrooms, you’ll be tripping for about six hours – no turning back – so you should control the setting as much as possible and be surrounded by people you trust and who you know will take care of you; you might even want to ask someone to be a sober sitter, perhaps someone who knows what the experience is like but who will sit out of this one and help make your trip a safe and positive experience. Once you know what a magic mushroom trip is like, you can decide for yourself if tripping on shrooms is something you’d like to do in a crowded and very stimulating place, such as a festival.
What Is a Magic Mushroom Trip Like?
Let’s follow the trip of the magic mushroom to understand what happens inside us when we munch on a magical shroom. Immediately after swallowing a dose of magic mushrooms, you won’t feel anything except perhaps a little nausea. Therefore, it’s not a bad idea to send some ginger along for the ride to calm down your stomach. About 30-60 minutes later, right about when you want to say, “I don’t feel anything,” you will realize that you do in fact feel something. At this point, your body has metabolized the psilocybin in the mushrooms and converted it to psilocin, which in turn has binded to serotonin receptors in your brain. The filters that normally limit the amount of sensory information that reaches your consciousness take a break; the gates open, and the sensory information floods your brain. You see colours you had never seen before; you see movement in normally static surfaces; you not only hear sounds, but you feel them and even see them. Aside from this enhancement of the senses, psilocybin mushrooms also make you hallucinate, in other words see or hear things that are not really there.
Your whole mind seems to open not only to what is around you but also to what is inside you. You become more perceptive and more aware of yourself, and you are able to see your life and your relationships in a new light. In fact, new research shows that psilocybin creates new neuronal connections in the brain and that these connections are bigger and stronger than regular connections. Therefore, the feeling of being rewired, which users often report, is more than just a feeling; it is an anatomical change.
This all probably sounds amazing, and you might be wondering why you have to prepare for a shrooms trip and why you shouldn’t try shrooms for the first time at a concert. However, you must consider that you will have little control over your hallucinations and that a psychedelic experience can be beautiful, but it can also be scary or emotionally painful. Therefore, any psychedelic experience – but especially the first one – should be undertaken after careful consideration of the mindset with which you will be entering the experience as well as the external setting of the trip.
How Should I Prepare to Trip at a Concert?
Frankly, the best way to prepare to trip at a concert is to have tripped before. That way you will know what to expect and will know if tripping at a concert – with the crowds, loud music, and flashing lights – would be a thrilling or overwhelming experience for you.
Additionally, even if you have tripped before, consider asking a sober sitter to go along with you, someone who won’t be overwhelmed by the flood of sensory stimulation and who can drive you home if necessary – FYI, you shouldn’t drive on shrooms.
How Much Shrooms Should I Eat?
How much psilocybin you should consume will depend on the desired effect. Think about previous trips: would you like this trip to be more or less intense? Do you want your senses to be enhanced or do you want a full-blown psychedelic experience? The following guide for dried magic mushroom dosage can help you decide on the ideal dose for tripping at a festival:
- Microdose: < 0.25 gr
- Low dose: 0.25 -1 gr
- Average dose: 1 – 2.5 gr
- High dose: 2.5 – 5 gr
- Very high dose: > 5 gr
