Blue Meanie is considered among the most potent P. cubensis strains, with a high that is visual, physical, euphoric, energetic, and introspective[ii]. The trip usually begins anywhere from forty-five minutes to an hour after ingestion, though since the effects can go on intensifying for some time, users are advised not to take any more until at least three hours after the first dose. Trips can last four to five hours.
Sellers sometimes suggest dose sizes (for example, one gram, in the case of Blue Meanie), but really it’s not that simple. Is the user a newbie who wants a very light, introductory dose? An old hand who wants to get as high as possible? A microdoser? And is the mushroom dry or fresh (fresh includes a lot of water-weight, so the dose will be bigger)? Is the user big or little? A rough estimate[iii] for P. cubensis dosage can be calculated, but since both user sensitivity and mushroom potency vary, the result is only approximiate
