I am planning on either trying shrooms or acid. I am wondering which one would suit me. I really want is something that will make colors change, shape change, things seem electric and vibrant, etc. What is the difference between shrooms and lsd? Any help would be appreciated.

Well LSD lasts a good 12 hours while shrooms last around 4 so the biggest difference would be time. Both trips can be intense but I prefer acid. Acid to me is much more euphoric and feels like it moves faster. The visuals on acid just seem so much more natural. but if you plan on taking psychedelics just to see colors, shape changes etc, then you are in for quite a suprise. There is WAY more than what meets the eye. It's a very spiritual experience, well for me at least.

In my experience, LSD gives heavier visuals at lower doses and makes everything almost like a cartoon, like a scanner darkly animation style. Mushrooms can give ridiculous visuals, but I've found them grounded and earthly and with much more of a mind fuck and revelations. I love both.

I agree that shrooms tend to be more of a mind fuck. In all honesty I have never had a "good time" on mushrooms. They always make me depressed or anxious about things for some reason. A lot of people I talk to have the same experience.

I have a theory this might be due to mixing shrooms and pot though. It seems like EVERYONE smokes weed when they're on mushrooms and I think it changes the experience a lot and can make it more negative/mind fuck like.

People don't even think weed effects mushrooms either. Cause if you've been smoking the whole time you don't notice any change after smoking. However, if you take mushrooms when you haven't smoked any pot for awhile and then smoke during the trip you'll notice a HUGE change. Try it if you don't believe me.

I never tried shrooms, but when I tripped on acid I barely had visuals, I saw shadows every now and then, but barely any visuals. The trip was more of a feeling, which me and a friend decided the best way to describe the feeling is:

you feel like your in a movie. some type of trippy movie, but its a crazy experience. Your walking around downtown tripping balls feeling like theres someone behind you following you with a camera, and occasionally I would close my eyes and see myself through the lense of the camera. But straight up thats the best way to describe my last trip. I felt like I was in a movie.

i find acid more intense in some ways. it's smoother as far as a body buzz for me, but both give me good visuals on relatively low doses (2g shrooms, hard to say with acid).
i've done both with and without weed, and i love them with weed :D it intensifies and can change the experience, but also calms me at the same time. it has more of an effect as i start to come down, and can help bring me back up. a few times i smoked in the morning when i woke up, and it brought on incredibly trippy feelings, although i doubt i had any acid/boomers left in me.

wow, no one here knows the major difference between shrooms and LSD? very interesting, well here it is:

Mushrooms allow you to preceive the pattern of reality as it is.
LSD allows you to dig into the pattern of reality.

Mushrooms want to keep you locked in your reality
LSD wants you to show you the truth beyond reality

Mushrooms make you some what "drunk" in the inability to walk.
LSD makes you stand up tall and forces you to think about your surroundings.

Squilla, that's freakin awesome man! I've sort of felt that way about shrooms for a while now but the way you said it makes so much sense.

I would say that shrooms have more organic morphing, more colour effects and more pleasant fractals but LSD visuals are more detailed, shifting. On shrooms, a lot of things seemed cleaner than they were and on acid a lot of things seemed dirtier.

I think one of the biggest differences is the extent to which LSD draws you places whereas shrooms is much less directed.

Mushrooms-- Things breathe, morph, its like you SUPER HIGH DEFINITION EYE SIGHT. seem funny, very flowy mprhping hallucinations

LSD- Very sharp rigid hallucinations, exact but profound. I personally see faces in everything on acid. MELTING.

i don't know the exact reason, people probably already explain it but acid lasts longer, everytime i've done it it was about 12 hours each time, and i get a lot of a better experience, shrooms last 4/6 hours, it's fun also. i started with lsd first but a lot of people i know have started with shrooms.

Shrooms always last 8 hours for me. I don't believe in taking less than an 8th though.

Mushrooms want to keep you locked in your reality? Increase your dosage.

Its different for everyone. I cant form sentences well on lsd but on shrooms its opposite. Try both at different times and make sure your in a good setting/set. If your just doing it for the visuals you've got another thing coming dude.

Acid is more of a feeling/great visuals, or my kind of visuals like patterns, but hallucinations come from things that are already present, like something has to be infront of you in order to hallucinate like a tree, clouds etc...., Proposes Questions, the only drug i like....Its definalty somehting to try if you like 100 percent mind drugs and are all about the mind :D

Mushrooms is more visual as in things appearing out of no where like how the, what the, where the fuck did that come from type stuff, however ive only done shrooms once so i cant speak much about it but it made me really happy

I suggest starting on mushrooms. The trip is significantly shorter, and I feel that mushroom trips are so confusing and wild that afterward you are forced to contemplate whether or not psychedelic experimentation is for you. not everyone should be taking hallucinogens, and some people don't realize it until its way too late. IMO, it's a lot easier to develop some form of psychological dependence on acid than it is on shrooms. that's just me though...

One of the parts the vid spoke of was the fact that mushrooms specifically effect the language portion of the brain. We normally think in language. Mushrooms inhibit this more than LSD. Sometimes on shrooms, I feel like I can't guide myself through the simplist things. My last lsd trip was 1800 mics. No typo..1800. Believe me, there was a period where I wasn't doing much moving but it was only for the high point of the peak. After that, I was able to move around, think and watch all kinds of cool things. I even went online to order a domino's pizza, still trippin hard but still able to guide myself. On a good dose of shrooms I would have a hard time even guiding myself through eating that pizza.

Well my freind just spoke to me tonight, and said she was on acid... I'm not sure if she would of been able to do that because Ive never done it.
But I've done shrooms several times, now they dont do anything for me sadly :( But Apperently Acid is more intense but it is like Shrooms.

Mushrooms are more of a grounding experience where you get in tune with your mind and why you are here. They normally show you yourself which can be very scary if you are not well prepared.
Lsd, is more colorful and vibrant, however it is easy to get stuck in a thought loop... But if you are looking for a more spiritual connect with the world do mushies, if you are looking to connect to your brain waves chose LSD.
LSD was made by human, and is pure human, it shows you your brain in a chemical type of way, while Mushies show you your brain and it's capabilities how it's connected to the universe.

I'm really surprised i didnt read anything about dosage and ability to dose in this post...

One of the main differences for me is that anybody can grow shrooms and get a reliable product with a reliable dosage, while lsd doesn't allow this. Consequently, as far as a trip can be between 20 and 150ug (for what i know), it's very hard to say how much you take. And that's a real big problem for me, as long as taking two trips leaving two hours between them is completely different than taking them together, because of the installed tolerance.

I can say i took large amounts of shrooms because i have weighted them, but you never can say how much LSD you take (sadly, few of us have access to the crystals, i dont, and even if i did, i couldn't weight ugs).

An LSD trip, for me, is much more clever because i'm not mind-fucked, and i remember everything i lived on acid, maybe better than if i took nothing, which is not the case with shrooms.

Also shrooms give me a heavy body buzz (at least for a part of my trip) while LSD doesnt.

And with a lot of shrooms, believe me, you definely CAN become a part of a larger consciousness. Till now (but my life is not over ^o^) I didnt experiment that with lsd, althought i know lsd is better knewn than shrooms to have that effect, but...

I dont know if i know what is a heavy lsd trip, i dont think so, while i already ate 5 or 6 trips in one time. I tripped fucking hard, out of my body and out of the time. I saw the birth of life once, a day where i read a book about this subject in the train bringing me to the goa party. I melted with music also. I think LSD could let me go or take me way farther but the problem stays that i never can know how much lsd there is on one blotter.

Also i better manage an lsd trip, i mean it's more easy to go where you want to go. You decide of your trip on lsd. But shrooms drive you somewhere you maybe didnt expect.

So for a first trip, i'd say a small dose of LSD is better because more clever. But you cant do this because you cant know how much lsd there is in your dose. So best is to try with shrooms first.

And dont forget : empty stomach for at least two hours before the trip ! It really changes everything :^)

Also i agree to say that pot on shrooms changes the experience very much, while it does less with lsd.

Forbid everything if you want, Mister Government. We'll find it anyway, you saw this with alcohol and you can see it with classified drugs now. But please, please, please, leave the choice to people to experiment with their consciousness ! Give them centers with specialists allowing to do so in good conditions ! Mankind NEEDS lsd NOW, not in hundred years because it will be too late ! It should be forbidden to forbid a Gift the Gods gave us to allow our saving ! I needed psychedelics to become what i am, i would be as most of the people if i didn't, looking at my ego only !

But maybe they want me to look only at my ego. Therefore they invented advertisement. Or at least i think so. But sorry, i diverge...

^ eventhough you can weigh them the psilocybin and other psychoactive alkaloid content can vary greatly between batches so that argument is not bulletproof.

I can't really say which is more spiritual or more of a mindfuck as I'm sure it depends on ones personality a bit , set , setting and dose.

I do know for sure I've found mushrooms to be the heavier trip and have more of a body trip. I often feel fused to objects or like sinking in the ground. There is more geometrical patterning to me with shrooms especially with eyes opened, things often seemed mapped out very geometric and symmetrical. I also tend to get body dysmorphic effects on shrooms(large hands/feet)

LSD on the other hand I find alot more colorful. I get wavy distortion on good LSD as if I'm looking through water colors and the periphry of my vision is not very clear. I tend to see trails of my arms or objects and feel more in tune with energy running through me. Closed eye visuals are more flashy to me on LSD, they too are geometric but seem more eratic and less naturally developing until after the peak when they slow down a bit.

You're right if you buy your stuff. But if you grow your own material and you know your prints, sorry but i think you're wrong. Maybe (and that's discussed a lot on specialized forums) you can have a small difference between 2 growing sessions, but no more than with two cannabis growing sessions from the same motherplant. Let's admit a 10 or 20% margin. Nothing related to 1000% factor there is between 20ug and 200ug...

What i meant is that you CAN grow your own shrooms and know while you CAN'T synthetize your Lucy and know (or you're a fuckin'lucky and fuckin'good chemist with a fuckin'serious big lab - Lucy synthesis has nothing to see with cooking meth...).

I was just talking in a general sense even if you grow your own, which no one here does, psilocybe cubebsis is going to have much different alkaloid content then psilocybe cyanesecens.

LSD can also have pretty consistent potency if its from the same batch, regardless if you are the chemist or not.
