The Lemon Tek, will it Increase the effect of your trip?

Truffles and mushrooms may have a sour taste already. There’s a theory that the more acidic the solution is, the better it will work. That’s where the Lemon Tek comes in. And it’s gaining in popularity by the day. But does the Lemon Tek really work?

Here are the instructions for preparing your Lemon Tek trip

This can be done either with magic truffles or magic mushrooms

1- Slice a lemon in 4 parts so you can make juice of it.
2- Powder your magic mushrooms or truffles in a grinder or coffee grinder, and put them in a glass.
3- Sqeeze out the lemons so that the juice is poured all over the mushrooms/truffles. Make sure the magic mushrooms or truffles are soaked completely.
4- Let it stand for 20 to 25 minutes (not any longer!) and mix every five minutes.
5- Drink the mixture. Know what you’re doing. It may be disgusting and very, very sour.
6- Time to start tripping.

Turning Psilocybin into Psilocin

When we tried this, we had a stronger trip, but the reason is debatable. Your trip is probably stronger because of the larger surface area (powdered shroom or truffle in a fluid), which also happens if you make tea with your truffles. Other people claim that the Lemon dephosphorylates the Psilocybin, turning it into Psilocin which makes you trip, because it can be absorbed faster. This may be true, and if so, it would result in your trip starting 15-20 minutes earlier, but it’s not likely to make your trip stronger.

Lemon juice vs. stomach acid

We’re not too sure about this theory, especially when you consider your gastric acid is much stronger than lemon juice, and it will convert the Psilocybin faster than lemon juice, so eventually, it would be a very minor difference..

    Soak the mushroom powder in lemon juice for 20-25 mins so that your trip starts 20-25 minutes earlier. Is it just me or does the math show that the effort nullifies the efficiency?

    The acidity of stomach acid and lemon juice are actually usually about the same, around 2. This is due to the fact the the HCL in your stomach is diluted with water and counteracted by some buffers. Also, the pH of your stomach can range from anywhere between 1 right after it has digested something to about 4 or 5 if you’ve just woken up or just eaten a big meal. So leaving your shrooms in lemon juice does start to break psilocybin into psilocin just as well as eating them would, possibly even better and more reliability. Thanks for the instructions though!

      Such a shame!! Why couldn’t you have used the same kind of grind that you used with the tea? Then we could pretty much assume that the lemon juice helped, or that the heat of the tea does more damage than we thought maybe.. but we’d have been one step closer to knowing.
      On the positive note, you have inspired me to copy your experiment with a few subjects and make the conditions as controlled as possible.
      Thanks for the inspiration, part of me is hoping to find that lemon juice doesn’t help but I’m open minded and if the experiment shows that it helps get us high, then I’ll start some experiments on the concentration of lemon, and length of brew etc
