If you were gonna recommend one for someone who's never done anything outside of weed a few times what would you go with? Asking for a friend as I'd have no idea how to get either. Where's silk road when you need it?

Only tried shrooms but I'd probably start there.

Definitely mushrooms. For a first time user I would recommend no more than an eighth (3.5 grams).

Shrooms. There's zero risk of physical harm or death. Ayahuasca is generally safe too, but there have been some incidents of it causing heart problems or death.

I went to a strip club on mushrooms. I highly recommend it.

Mushrooms about 20 times or so.  Never tried Aya.

 

There's an AMA thread by an OGer who works at an Aya retreat that's pretty current, I'll ttt it.

Told this story on here before, but the last time I tried shrooms was in college.

 

I took way too many and was fine until one of my friends showed up with some weed.

 

The paranoia from smoking made my trip take a dark turn.

 

After my friends all passed out, I convinced myself that the only way to end the bad trip was to stab myself in the eyes with scissors.

 

I rifled through my place looking for scissors, to no avail; I eventually came down and kept both of my eyeballs.

 

Great time.  Would definitely recommend.

Shrooms, definitely. 
 

Love me some shrooms. Wouldn't touch them at this stage of my life but god damn was that some fun shit when I was younger.

Done both and definitely recommend shrooms (and eventually both). Aya is not really a "recreational" drug and is more of an experience/life altering type of trip. It's super intense and definitely shouldn't be your first of the two.
