How do I increase my sensitivity to Psychedelics?

20 posts in this topic

I’ve noticed I am much more tolerant to psychedelics than most.


It can take anywhere from 3-5x the recommended dose to get expected effects.

For example. The experience of 5 grams of Magic Mushrooms seems similar to 1.5-2 based on how others talk about it. Or, 60 mg of DMT seems closer to the effect of 15-20 for others.

 

Any advice?

I have noticed that the more I work on releasing blockages of my ego structure, the easier it gets to be affected by psychedelics. Effect of 400ug LSD last year,  is the same as 200 this year.  

Could also be the potency of the batch/chemical or substance.  
 
I don’t know exactly why, but taking 1x Lions Mane extract capsule, before a LSD or Mushroom trip, does potentiate the trip drastically. Also stacking it with Niacin (Vitamin B3).  
Got this from Paul Stamets on JRE. 
(Could work with DMT, although I haven’t tried that stack yet.)
 

Cleaning out diet, and eating real clean days before the trip helps a lot. 
No alcohol, sugar, candy, fastfood, salt, greasy food days prior to tripping. 
 

Also, for some time I wasn’t getting effects of few psychedelics for the weirdest reason. Was taking 5MEO and Ket without much effect. Noticed later on that I was using Magnesium supplements on a daily basis. Which works as a major NMDA antagonist, which can dull down or soften your trips, especially psychedelics that work on same receptors. Same thing with Zinc.

It's probably mostly baked into your genetics (for lack of a better word). I doubt you will change it much.

Harmala extract greatly potentiates all psychedelics. But you have go use it very carefully or you can overdose. If you have 5x tolerance them harmala might do the trick to bring you in line will folks like myself who are super sensitive.

I found that i've become 10x more sensitive to psychedelics after doing 2 years of meditation and a 1 year break from psychedelics. A small dose of LSD gave me complete ego death and god realisation.

I used to have a super high tolerance to psychs until i did 1200ug of LSD and whited out and became infinity. Now I can get LSD visuals from a moderate dose of weed and meditation.

Holy macaronies. That must have been a hell of a trip to undergo. How long did you white out for?
Reminds me of those "Acid Thumbprint" stories. Highly recommend listening to one of those trip reports.

@Vincent SYeah it was insane. I had done 900ug 2 weeks prior and still didnt get the breakthrough to infinity, just a very cool experience. Then I decided to try one more time with a higher dose and within 30 minutes I knew this was gonna be it. I listened to that acid thumbprint vid and when the guy says, "I melt into eternity and die into the moment. There is no you left" thats exactly what it was like. It felt like literally eternity but when I came back it ended up being about 5 hours. Incredibly terrifying the first time you realize the groundlessness and immaterial nature of reality, but ultimately it was the best experience ever

After my breakthrough 5meo experience, tripping isn't the same anymore.

DMT is now 5meo

2 grams of mushrooms feels like 4-5 grams

 

It's completely changed my sensitivity.

Thanks for sharing this, I also remember Leo in an older video, maybe even his interview with Martin Ball, how after his 5-MEO breakthrough, mushrooms were much more potent than before.

There could be some truth.

My first trip ever was a DMT breakthrough. Weed just was weirdly different and much more potent after the dmt trip. After my first acid trip it probably doubled again.

Idk if something happened during my early trips, or if I am just generally very intolerant. 150-200ug, acid is mind blowing for me, 250 is unbelievable, I never need more than 2g of shrooms. DMT, regardless of the method, even with the worst pipe, I always need just one shot for breakthrough.

- Blindfold, lying down, do not take the blindfold off at any time.
- Empty stomach
- Headphones playing introspective classical / neoclassic music.

Do all the above and you will at least double (probably much more) the potency of a trip.

The more you will face your subconscious and increase your consciousness, the more sensitive you will be to psychedelics. That is because psychedelics reduce the activity of the mind, including the subconscious. That is why if you do shadow work, meditation, contemplation, yoga, it will potentiate psychedelics. Also, deep trips will open the mind and allow to brain to be capable to operate on a different frequency. For example, after you do a few Ayahuasca ceremonies, it is highly likely that you will get DMT visuals and sphere-like experience of space on normal dose Psilocybin trips, and that the Psilocybin trips will be deeper than normal tripping on 1.5g-2g of mushrooms. The same goes for LSD. If you went full on ego death on Ayahuasca, 100-200 dose of LSD can send you there as well. It is just a lot easier to surrender to this after you have been through it once. 

In the end, it all depends on your mind. The more dense, complex and split the mind is (heavy thinking, heavy interpreting and conceptualizing, lots of subconscious material), the weaker/shallower the trip will be.

And of course, there may by subjective physiological factors such as the body's ability to metabolize the substance, or the baseline sensitivity of the receptors to the substance.

This is very interesting, will try it with the Lions Mane next time.

Yeah I think with almost all the spiritual techniques you increase your sensitivity to psychedelics in general. And also just doing psychedelics will increase your sensitivity over time, or you could say your trips will go deeper everytime. For me reality starts to melt awaý on 100 mics already and I start questioning everything and  go existential on every little word :D  My friends were talking about girls and relationships and Im like: what are girls? what is a relationship? haha

Breaks? Haha when book yogis try to become in-field yogis.

If you are going to be using a harmala be careful. You need to follow a certain diet or it can get dangerous.

These are the foods to avoid.

Strong or aged cheeses, such as aged cheddar, Swiss and Parmesan; blue cheeses such as Stilton and Gorgonzola; and Camembert. Cheeses made from pasteurized milk are less likely to contain high levels of tyramine — for example, American cheese, cottage cheese, ricotta, farmer cheese and cream cheese.

Cured meats, which are meats treated with salt and nitrate or nitrite, such as dry-type summer sausages, pepperoni and salami.

Smoked or processed meats, such as hot dogs, bologna, bacon, corned beef or smoked fish.

Pickled or fermented foods, such as sauerkraut, kimchi, caviar, tofu or pickles.

Sauces, such as soy sauce, shrimp sauce, fish sauce, miso and teriyaki sauce.

Soybeans and soybean products.

Snow peas, broad beans (fava beans) and their pods.

Dried or overripe fruits, such as raisins or prunes, or overripe bananas or avocados.

Meat tenderizers or meat prepared with tenderizers.

Yeast-extract spreads, such as Marmite, brewer's yeast or sourdough bread.

Alcoholic beverages, such as beer — especially tap or homebrewed beer — red wine, sherry and liqueurs.

Combination foods that contain any of the above ingredients.

Improperly stored foods or spoiled foods. While you're taking an MAOI, your doctor may recommend eating only fresh foods — not leftovers or foods past their freshness dates.

Beverages with caffeine also may contain tyramine, so your doctor may recommend limits.

MAOIs, although effective, generally have been replaced by newer antidepressants that are safer and cause fewer side effects. Still, an MAOI is a good option for some people. In certain cases, an MAOI relieves depression when other treatments have failed.

Examples of MAOIs that are used for depression include:

Isocarboxazid (Marplan)

Phenelzine (Nardil)

Selegiline (Emsam)

Tranylcypromine (Parnate)

Selegiline in patch form (Emsam) delivers the medication through your skin. If you use the lowest dose of the patch, you may not need to be as strict with the foods you eat, but check with your doctor or pharmacist.

It's wise to learn the emergency signs of a rapid and severe rise in blood pressure (hypertensive crisis), which may include:

Severe headache

Nausea and vomiting

Sweating and severe anxiety

Nosebleeds

Fast heartbeat

Chest pain

Changes in vision

Shortness of breath

Confusion

Rarely, a severe increase in blood pressure can lead to bleeding in the brain (hemorrhagic stroke).

If you take an MAOI, be prepared. Ask your doctor:

For a list of foods to avoid — make sure you understand exactly what's safe for you and what isn't

What to do if you accidently eat or drink something with too much tyramine, so you have a plan in place
