Do Shrooms Smell?
    #352413 - 07/01/01 12:40 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hey everyone! I don't think they do, but do fresh shrooms have a strong, noticeable smell? I know when they are dry, they have a distinct smell, but I am more worried about a strong smell someone would be able to detect from, say more than 20 feet. Thanks for your help!

Fresh YES, they make a whole house smelling, but if you keep the window open for some time daily and keep them in a closed container NO.
Dried, they have no smel.l

Dry have absolutely no identifiable odor, so much so that the US customs doesn't even train dogs to try to smell for them (not that mushrooms are a high-priority smuggling commodity anyway). You can (or could) order dried mushrooms from overseas and they would arrive unmolested in your mail box...from the hand of your friendly neighborhood postal employee. Now, I would have some serious concerns about security issues regarding the scrutiny that the US mail is under right now, for obvious reasons.

No. Mushrooms don't have noses... :smirk:

Seriously, although, I'm sure they do give off some aromatic molecules, I do not think that psilocybin mushrooms have a noticeable odor, which would present a cultivation detection problem, the way that cannabis does.

However, I do distinctly remember about 20 years ago when my friend and I picked a shitload of Amanita Muscaria mushrooms in the wild, and filled the refrigerator with them, that the smell got quite bad, and the refrigerator full of Amanitas became quite a point of contention for many of the women in the house. I think that part of this smell was do to decomposition, and a. Muscaria, being a different species, does seem to have a much stronger natural odor than p. Cubensis.
