Are aborts more potent than fully grown mushrooms?
Less weighing specimens have more alkaloids.
Research on P. azurescens and other species seems to support the claim that less weighing specimens have more alkaloids. Since the studies don't indicate whether the specimens used in this research were simply smaller or not fully grown, no definitive answer can be given for aborts, but is is very likely that aborts fit into this behavior and thus are more potent (per gram) than large mushroms.
