My guess (and this has no basis) is that someone found out about how the most active part of Amanitas is the cap and then translated that to psilocybine mushrooms.

I second the amanita theory that's the only logical source I can think of.

How hard did you look, there are tons of posts on caps vs. stems, anyways, it is just a myth.

all fruitbodies are essentially compressed mycelium, (which is why you can take clones from them) so my guess is that all parts of the mushroom are sortof made of the same stuff.. ..

My guess is that the myth started from ignorance not fact. As in people just asumed that since the cap was at the top all the good stuff got put into it and the stem just grew so the cap could rest on it.

I agree, the cap just looks more potent. I don't know why this was even asked in the first place, where do you get caps wihtout stems, or vice versa?

Subject: TEONANACATL 1995 PCYAO, part 3: analytical data


* Samples of Psilocybe Cyanescens Astoria Ossip (from outdoor
natural culture) and also Psilocybe Cubensis (cultivated on straw,
indoors) and Psilocybe Semilanceata (collected from their natural
habitat) were found to contain the following amounts (in % of dry
weight) of alkaloids:

(Psilocybin) *Psilocin "total"

PCY-AO-94, caps (0.7) *0.4 "1.3"
PCY-AO-94, stems (0.8) *0.2 "1.1"


As you can see, there isn't much difference.

ummm the only way a cap would be more potant is if it weighs more then the stem.. usually this is the same question that baffles many, but the alkaloids are greater in the heavier peice. just my 2 cents

Spoes do not contain Psilocybin. That's why they're legal, where as cubensis mushrooms and their cultures are not legal. (In the U.S. anyway)
