For anyone too hesitant to try illicit drugs themselves, talking with people who have a lot of experience with drugs can be the next best thing. That’s why we’ve routinely asked skateboarders about smoking crack, boofing beer, and ingesting all kinds of mind-altering substances that we haven’t gotten around to trying ourselves.
So after doing a video with Ryan Reyes on non-psychedelic mushrooms, we decided to hit him up again and do something that took advantage of his psychedelic knowledge, since he’s gotten pretty deep into magic mushrooms, LSD, DMT, and the whole tie-dye pharmacy.
We put out a call a few weeks back for questions, then had Ryan film himself answering as many as possible. Some questions got cut for being repetitive or just too dumb, but we kept enough to cover a bunch of different topics and common concerns people have when considering psychedelic drugs.
Wanna know how to get the most out of your psychedelic experiences, what role your environment plays, how to effectively microdose, or just the best way to keep mushrooms fresh? Well, Ryan’s got some answers.
* OBLIGATORY DUMBASS DISCLAIMER* Ryan isn’t a scientist, doctor or licensed shaman. He’s just another skater, just like you. BUT, he’s spent a lot of time learning and researching this world and was down to open up and share as much as he knows. As always, be safe & experiment at your own risk.
