do i need to boil dried shrooms?
    #1035284 - 11/08/02 08:59 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

hows it going...ok,basically,i live in ireland,and we've gone picking several times,and usually either taken the shrooms fresh,or dried them beside
a radiator for a bit,and then taken them...however,this guy we know recently gave my friend some and told her to boil them for an hour before
taking them to avoid getting really sick...does anyone know what the story is with this?
will they not lose potency if we boil them?
thanks in advance,
gegho

If you ask me, that is the very definition of sketchy. Do you know exactly what kind of shooms these are? and how well do you know this guy?

If they are contaminated, then boiling for any length of time isn't a 100% guarantee that you won't get sick. Boiling will also reduce the potency as you guessed. Is your friend just repeating some silly "lsd spinal tap" type of urban legend, or does he know something about where they were picked or how they were grown? If he is repeating an urban legend, then no worried and eat them without boiling. If he knows they came from a contaminated source then chuck them in the trash because boiling might not help and getting sick isn't worth the risk.
