Many of my friends don’t quite understand what I do but they reassure me it’s something they would never attempt. Airplanes are one of my favorite places to eat mushrooms of the Cubensis variety. There are a few reasons that I’ve observed and will detail below. This may help you see things from my perspective.
Pre flight ritual: Roll all the weed left, smoke then go to the airport with super munchies
First, when do you eat the mushrooms? Well I think I’m familiar with my body and know I have about 15-20 minutes before I start feeling the on set of the mushrooms.
This sets up an ironic perfect time to eat them, take off. As the plane takes off you begin your takeoff as well. Important part I didn’t mention to the Magic, you must have a window seat. This is essential to enjoying the flight. To get even more specific flights around 5:30-6 get nice orange sunset hues bouncing off the clouds and what not. If you really want to go the extra step be sure your window is facing the west coast.
How much mushrooms are you eating on a flight?
It doesn’t feel right telling people how much they should be eating, especially on a flight. I’ll make a suggestion but knowing your own comfort level is the key here. I usually eat about 1- 2 grams mixed in with some nuts and berries for a 2-3 hour flight so I’m definitely walking off that plane still in the clouds.
Why do you do this and is there a difference in the effect/flight?
The first time I did it was by accident, I forgot I had a little on me before I hit security so I just ate em. Turned out to be the most comfortable flight I’ve ever taken.
Growing up I’ve been haunted with ideas of planes crashing so it took a while to get that stuff out of my head but from time to time I’ll get a little nervous because of the turbulence. One thing I noticed instantly when I was on cubensis was that the feeling of my stomach dropping when the plane dips was no longer happening. It felt as if when the plane dipped my body didn’t lag it dipped right along with it…hmmm that was a cool observation. Being “one” with the planes movements eased my mind. It made a obvious difference in flight ease and relaxation.
The view, the last flight was quite spectacular as the clouds were heavenly. I really wanted to fly into them. At one point I forgot I was on the plane with other people. My eyes were adjusting to the lighting outside so the contrast created an interesting lighting effect upon glancing back to my left. It was as if the plane were a cave and the light source was my window. When I would peek over my shoulder back into the plane I only could see darkness. To paint a picture of what was happening, my eyes were locked on the clouds, phone in my left hand ready to take photos, hoodie over my head, listening to my own songs “this is soooooooullllll” vibrating through my headphones. Safe to say I was feeling great, the lady sitting next to me dosed off and could careless about what I was doing. Sometimes people can disrupt my selfie flow.
The sound is usually muffled when flying so that adds to the quietness of the whole experience. Even if there are people talking the effect of being so high (in the air) gives a silence that I really appreciate.
Last but not least, breathing deep seems a bit more rewarding on a flight too. It feels like I just sink deep into my seat then zone all the way out. The plane transforms into my personal spaceship for a few hours.
Would I recommend a rookie to do this? Nah this is for those that know themselves well enough to handle a trip on a trip.
