Interested in making your magic mushroom trip more intense? Then try the Lemon Tek method!
What is Lemon Tekking?
Lemon Tekking is a popular method where you let your psilocybin mushrooms sit in either lemon or lime juice before consumption. The citric acid from the lemon or lime breaks down the mushroom material and changes the chemical composition of magic mushrooms. The acid turns the non-psychoactive psilocybin into psychoactive psilocin. Usually, the acids in your stomach would do this conversion. Therefore, the magic is received quicker, which allows your trip to develop faster and more intensely.
The Science Behind Lemon Tekking
Lemon Tekking operates by allowing the citric acid in the lemons to imitate the acids that your stomach contains. By doing so, the lemons have already broken down the mushroom before you eat them. Stomachs have an acidity of 1.5-3.5 pH and lemons have a 2-2.6 pH acidity. Therefore, the acidity of the lemons replicates the conditions of the stomach.
By doing so, the Psilocybin of magic mushrooms is turned into Psilocin. Psilocin is the actual compound that is responsible for the hallucinogenic effects of magic mushrooms.
How does it feel?
People generally say that lemon tekking makes the magic mushroom trip have a faster onset and come-down, and overall a shorter trip. Usually, mushrooms take around 30-90 minutes to feel the effects, and around three hours or so to feel the peak. With lemon tekking, you are expected to feel the effects within 10-45 minutes, and a peak that is experienced much sooner than three hours. As for the span of the whole trip, if a typical trip usually lasts six to eight hours, then a lemon tek trip would typically be around four to six.
How does it feel to experience a Lemon Tek?
There has been some debate about whether lemon tekking intensifies the experience. The overall consensus of lemon tek users says that not only intensifies the experience but also provides profound effects. When you lemon tek, people generally say that you do not need the usual dose of a magic mushroom trip. People say that it may be three to four times more potent than a typical magic mushroom trip; therefore, you only need to consume about half your usual dose of magic mushrooms. There is also a consensus that lemon tekking may make the experience more deep-felt, with better visuals hallucinations as well as a better peak.
Some people say that they feel less tired after using this method, because their body has less work to do, since it has skipped the process of turning the Psilocybin into Psilocin.
