Mushroom Tincture
    #14811416 - 07/23/11 01:03 AM (2 years, 8 months ago)

I want to try and make a mushroom tincture, as I am storing dried shrooms in honey at the moment, and my second batch with roughly 98 grams of shrooms left in it is starting to get mouldy.

A tincture sounds good because the actives are extracted into the alcohol and the mushroom matter can be discarded, which should greatly reduce the chance of mould.

Can someone tell me if this method will work?

Powderize ~100g of shrooms and place in empty coffee jar.
Pour enough Bacardi 151 alcohol into the jar to cover mushrooms.
Mix alcohol and mushrooms around for approx 30 minutes, then place in freezer for 24 hours.
Strain out the powderized shrooms and move alcohol into dark glass blottle.
Cover mushrooms with alcohol again and mix. Place in freezer for further 24 hours, then seperate the alcohol from mushrooms again.

The only part I'm not sure about is the evaporation of the alcohol.
Is it necessary to evaporate the alcohol or will it still store fine even with a bit more alcohol in it. I understand that evaporating the alcohol will leave me with a more potent product, but I'm not really worried about that.

why wouldn't you evaporate the alcohol? do you really want to have to do like a shot of alcohol every time you dose?

you can get a spirit from dan murpheys thats 95% alc or something, would be much cleaner for the extraction :smile:

evaporating is a sweet idea, you can bring it down to a small level and use a syringe or something to squirt it down your throat.

Let us know how you go buddy :thumbup:

Yes, that's what I was hoping for actually.

I want roughly one shot to equate to a level 2 trip.


Does my method sound as though it will work? I may evaporate some of the alcohol, depending on how much I end up using.

Also, could I add some buds to this to make it a THC/Psilocin tincture, or would oral THC + psilocin be too much to handle?

Cheers, will definitely look into that. Any idea what it is?
The strongest stuff I've found so far is Bacardi 151 from Thirsty Camel, so I guess I should shop around at the other bottle shops.

I think that would be a hell of a body load....plus you don't get the fun of smoking the bud. I would say make the shroom tincture and leave the bud alone.

Haha yeah thought it might be a bit over the top.

Might make a bud tincture separately as I would like to experience the effects of ingesting THC orally.

Oh shit, you haven't tried brownies or anything? Yeah you need to give it a try....it's quite a bit more heavy in my experience. It's great if you don't eat too much.

Well I've tried firecrackers, but both times I made them they didn't work. Probably had the temperature too high.

I'm hoping a tincture will do the job for me though, as no heat will be used.


Can't wait to give it a try.

I think that combining mushroom tincture and weed tincture could be really fun, but I agree that they should be kept separate. That way you can choose between taking mushrooms with and without weed.

Also, taking the weed orally makes it last much longer. Possibly a little longer than the trip.

There's a link to it in another thread, can't find it though :frown: if I do manage to find it I'll PM you :wink:

It's like 90 or 95% and it's about $65

Liking the sound of that pot shroom tink.

Maybe even a high alcohol content absinthe? Having a thc, wormwood, shroom tink might be interesting :smile:

Found it mate:

Pure Polish Spirit

95% alcohol, 500ml $58.99

I would say that is the highest alcoholic content you could easily obtain, unless you know someone in the wine industry or something.

Going to get myself a bottle when i got cash, make a little tinc :thumbup:

That's awesome!
Thanks for that, I'll definitely try and get a hold of some.
Not as expensive as I was thinking it would be.

Yeah it's not to bad price, can get things that cost a shiteload lol

No problem bud, let us know how you go! if you do plan on evaporating i wouldn't mind knowing the ratio you went with :smile:

Good luck!

Yeah I'll keep you updated for sure.

Probably won't get started until next weekend though.

At the moment It looks like I'll be using about 70g of subs, but hopefully I can get it up to 100g.

Awesome :thumbup: looking forward to it.

Could get a pretty potent potion out of that :smile: if you used 100g and evaporated it down to about 200ml then you'd only need 6ml or so for a decent trip :smile:

Once you've done the extraction, and have time to try the goods, could even think about mixing a bit of lemon juice with about 4ml of the tinc, give you a real kick up the ass :smile:

That's not a bad idea, I'll make sure I give it a go.

Really bummed about losing ~105 grams of subs to mould. I'm hoping nothing goes wrong with this tincture, as it's quite possible that today was the last good haul of the season for me.

Yeah man that sucks ass :thumbdown: same thing happened to my mate, not on as bigger scale though :frown:

Maybe because your experimenting you could use 50-70g and half a bottle of the spirit? That way if its success you got a bit left over to do some more :smile:

Would hate to see more mush go to waste :frown: but there are quite a few successful stories about alcohol extractions :smile:

Wow you need a dehydrator


It's so dry here they just dry out on their own, I just leave them sitting out for a few days...

Yeah I'm fairly sure my mushies still had a tiny bit of moisture in them, even though they appeared to be cracker dry.

Since no mushroom matter is left in the alcohol extraction it should be all good. But like you suggested, I will start small just incase anything goes wrong. I would hate to lose the last of my subs.

I've been using my oven at 30C with the door open to dry them. It gets them dry but obviously not dry enough.

Gonna buy lots of damprid before next season. I reckon that would do the best job.
