History

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psilocybin#History

Dosage

This is the dose range for dry Psilocybe Cubensis. Fresh mushrooms are 9/10ths water by weight, and require 10 times the dose.

For other types of psilocybes, see http://www.erowid.org/plants/mushrooms/mushrooms_info4.shtml.

Oral

Duration: 4-8 hours

Low dose: 1-2 grams

Common dose: 2-4 grams

High dose: >4 grams

Lemon Tek

This will greatly increase intensity, but lower the duration. The comedown is abrupt, yet gentle. Do not expect enough time for introspection.

Grind the mushrooms to a fine powder, then add them to an acidic solution (e.g. 1 tbps lemon juice, 8oz water), and drink on an empty stomach.

Effects

This is a list of common, possible effects. It is unlikely that you will experience all of them, and effects are highly dependent on environment.
