Dieing From Shrooms

— Posted by zer0skill on 3:36 pm on Mar. 6, 2002

Is it really possible to overdose and die from shrooms?

— Posted by drybilgeltd on 6:16 pm on Mar. 6, 2002

I believe so.  From time to time there will be an artical in the newspaper about someone being poisoned by mushrooms they had picked in the woods.  It is very difficult to tell safe to eat mushrooms from deadly toadstools. They get their name from toads sitting on them like a stool I think ( seen this in a cartoon ). The damage is done to your liver.  The mushrooms that make you go wacko are poisoning you also.  People in Japan eat the poisonous Blowfish and think they are having a good time. From a documentary on the tely ( British expression for television ) they try to see how close they can come to dieing without actually croaking.  I would prefer to die from lack of air do to too many kisses from someone I am very attracted to. There are some people I have met in this world that I like very much and it hurts me to see them do something bad to themself.  So far there has been enough of them to make up for the large number of stupid assholes I do not like. If anyone takes offence to my slightly political comment I would like to apoligize now. I do care about you.

You prob can OD, but it aint regular, the most likely reason of death is getting high and doing summit whilst on a trip, ive heard a story bout 2 guys getting high and one of the woke up and his mate was naked sleeping in the snow, and was dead 🙁
Also bout picking the wrong type, it ain tthe shroom doing the damage its the dumb fuck picking the wrong mushroom.

Being Mr Mushrooms you’d think I’d know a bit more about my namesakes but it’s entirely possible to die if you pick random mushrooms that are in some way poisineous. As with any drug you should always trust the person your buying it off, otherwise it is very, very ahrd to OD on regular magic mushrooms.

Mushrooms forever.

The lsd mith that somefuk was talking about was started by ppl who lace their shrooms with lsd to give them an extra kick, and sometimes they use arsenic in the lsd to help it bind to blot paper, so if you buy them from someone and they say that one or two will get you really trashed then they’re probably laced, not that thats a bad thing but if your paranoid about them having aresenic in them, just grow them, not too hard, and if you live in the Uk or the Us you’ve got so many places on the net that ship shroom spores, that way you’ll know that the shrooms are ok.

What are whippets? I searched on the net, but just got pictures of the dogs…..

— Posted by dellexo on 9:01 pm on Mar. 9, 2002

HaHa,Know what you mean.I’m from the U.K and whippets are a bread of dogs:biggrin: On a more serious note whippets are a small canister filled with nitrous oxide(laughing Gas) which are used in the states for filling fresh cream dispensers(not in the u.k.:sad: )

— Posted by qube on 4:23 pm on Mar. 10, 2002

Ah kool, so people in the US can get hold of it, get high, and enjoy a cholestral full snack at the same time! I eventually found the info online, but thanks.

The answer to whether or not you can OD from mushrooms is yes. You can overdose from any drug theoreticlly included weed although it is hard to do…And whippets are cool but theyre not that crazy i used to sneak into the freezer when i worked at mcdonalds and waste a whole can of the shit

— Posted by Jimmy Long on 9:53 am on Mar. 17, 2002

to OD on weed you would basically have to use it the same way as alcohol….ingest it….smoking it takes it out of your system too fast, but if you eat it, you couldnt digest it all in enough time, and basically get something like “weed poisoning”. but, you would have to eat like an pound…..lol

— Posted by roach420 on 9:56 pm on Mar. 17, 2002

There is no known case of a person OD-ing on pot. It cant be done. As for shrooms u cant OD on them either. But if you get some fake ass shrooms that are poisonous then you can die. Shrooms that are the real thing cant kill you though.

i hurd lethal dose is body weight

— Posted by Lowman on 5:26 am on Mar. 18, 2002

Hate to tel ya’ll you can OD on Weed. But to OD on weed take the amount of weed it takes you to get stoned and multiply that 40,000 and you’ll OD on weed.

ok im new to all this shit but when u hear the term “cutting”
like say cutting something with baking soda  WTF does it mean ??

— Posted by Rebo on 1:17 pm on Mar. 21, 2002

You can od on psilocybin. The only known case I am aware of was in 1978, in seattle, and it was a small child. It’s not likely an adult would be able to eat enough to od.  The very best advice I can give is that you learn the differences between gallerinas, and psilocybes (the latter-good, the former-deadly-and they look similar)

— Posted by thephreak on 3:28 pm on Mar. 21, 2002

‘cutting’ is the practice of mixing a substance with something else, e.g mixing cocaine with another powder so the dealer has to sell less. Be wary, as unscrupulous dealers will mix with any white powder and shit like ant killer aint good for you

yeh i think it is possable to od on shrooms. i dunno much about em’ myself, but i gotta mate here in australia who had one his mates called a ‘Blue Ringer’, and spent 3 weeks in hospital, and now is substatially slower as a result. he didnt have much, and thats wot hpned, i imagine he coulda died from much more then he had.

— Posted by ghettopimp70 on 3:14 am on Mar. 24, 2002

Whoever thinks they cant OD on shroomz I say go drop 150 grams…then if you survive come back and prove me wrong.. And i heard smoking twice your body weight in weed kills ya

— Posted by Cook14u on 4:12 am on Mar. 24, 2002

Jesus christ…  I already posted the lethal dose.  Re-read my post.  Yes, you can die from shrooms.

— Posted by Cook14u on 4:15 am on Mar. 24, 2002

Lethal dose of marijuana LD50 1270 mg/kg (male rats), 730 mg/kg (female rats) oral in sesame oil
LD50 42 mg/kg (rats) inhalation

hey!!! who says were not…

Some of you have some very good points and some of you are just pissing in this poor guys ear.

Listen.Its been said here before…the wrong mushrooms could kill you.
Know that the mushrooms your taking have been taken before and that they are the same kind.

You are more likely to die from the STRYCHNINE alkaloids in the mushrooms than from the fucking hillarious bouts of severe confusion ,visual and mental halucinations ,deluded yet profound perception and self induced psychosis you are about to put yourself through.
one handfull is enough.
And i dont know about the rest of you but i think the trippy feeling and intensity of mushroom tripping is more powerfull than lsd.

who said lacing mushrooms with lsd???
thats crazy talk.no offence my friend…
although the psychoactive ingreeeedient in mushrooms is different from lsd it still has the same profound effects on the brains serotonin and dopamine receptors.
In 1993 while in college at 19 years old i had taken lsd strong enough to make a person sick and send them to a crazy ward.
And still to this day what bat fly sparkle ground twinkle tea on the moonlight branch ,life what ?
