Method 6: Lemon tek your shrooms and take them as a quick shot.
Lemon tekking is not for the feint of heart. It can intensify the trip by 2 - 3 times and the onset is nearly immediate, which can be a jarring experience for the magic mushroom novice. Having said that, it also reduces the nausea and the trip duration, culminating in a shorter, more intense trip without the dreaded nausea or body load.
If you're new to shrooming and lemon tekking, we recommend you pick a strain you're familiar with, or a popular strain that's known to be gentle, and use only half the dose for the outcome you're looking for.
- Grind dried magic mushrooms into a fine powder using a coffee grinder.
- Place the mushroom powder in a glass or container.
- Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the powder, ensuring it's fully covered.
- Stir well to make a homogeneous mixture.
- Let the lemon tek mixture sit for 20-30 minutes, occasionally stirring.
- Consume the lemon tek solution for a potentially quicker onset and shorter trip duration.
