The trip of magic mushrooms described by the best scientist on psichedellics.

in #naturalmedicine2 years ago (edited)

In this post I want to show the description of the psilocybin trip that the great scientist Alexander Shulguin wrote in one of his most famous books: TIHKAL, triptamines I have known and loved.

First, is important to make clear that the biochemist Alexander Shulguin (1925-2014) have been the most important scientist on psichedellics along human history, even more than Albert Hoffman. For example he was the creator of MDMA (ecstasy) and more than 250 psichedellic compounds between 70´s - 80´s, all of wich are documented in his book PIHKAL, along with the chemical synthesis and the effects based on bioassays on himself and Friends.

For many people, including me, Sasha is sort of a hero, even in some web pages flatter him with phases like ¨too big for a novel prize¨. Maybe his work was very controversial, but his contribution to neuropharmacology is really huge, because many of the substances he synthesized and studied let us know much more about the behabior of the nervous system under the influence of spychedellics, along with potential treatments of neurological diseases. So it´s worth to read about his legacy on psylocybin, a compound that he synthesized and studied.

This is the description of the trip from TIHKAL:

IS THIS NOT POETIC?

Sort:  

Makes me sick just thinking about 'shrooms right now... those days are long gone for me lol. Respect, and admire though! xx

I had lovely field mushies on toast for brekky, now that was good!

Sasha is definitely one of my heroes 2. What he achieved in a lifetime is absolutely astounding. Do you know if Sasha classified any of his psylocibin trips as a +4?

Hi @bengiles. Thank you for stopping by. Sasha experimented psilocybin with a maximal dosage of 15 mg, which is not sufficient to obtain a +4. Rarely he experimented with psichedellics in such hight level.

Is one trip ever the same or even remotely comparable to the next? Are two people's experiences ever even remotely comparable?

Hi @artemislives. It always produces the same general effects in humans. This is because psilocybin acts always in the same neurorreceptors, as Well as it stimulates the same neurotransmisors. But little variations can exist in different individuals, because of the small biochemical differences between each person.
