Laughing gyms
    #11182060 - 10/04/09 08:02 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Silly me forgot the camera for proper habitat pics, so you will just have to accept this crappy post-pick pic.  Found on one of the same exact logs as last year's batch. Wish I would have got to them sooner as they're a bit aged and bug bit.  Still okay though.  The dehydrator is currently whirring away.



Here's my thread last year with gyms on the very same log with better pics:  http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/9076849#9076849

Pretty good.  They're very bitter, but completely manageable.  Nausea never got to the point of vomiting when consumed.  What I usually did with the last batch was grind them to a powder and then dose 2-8grams along with cubensis.  Alone, ~8 grams made for a mild journey.  I found them to be 15-25% the potency of cubensis when comparing dry weight.  My solitary experience with a fresh gym(34.x grams IIRC) netted little result, and I'm led to be a bit skeptical of the sentiment that they're much more potent when fresh I've heard said before.

Cool.  Thanks for the info.  My first summer hunting so I'm still trying to find spots and all.  Never tripped, so I'm looking to start small.  Prob will try fresh first if only because the smell starts to take an effect on me when they dry. Come across a decent number of Gyms past there prime.  Just found a cluster of BLG's today.

A bit off topic but you mind me asking what the first pic in your sig is from??

Cool beans.

The first pic in my sig is a computer graphic by the late Zdzislaw Beksinski, my favorite artist.  Every 100 posts I go with a different work from him in my sig.

The ones in both threads look like G. luteus to me, not G. spectabilis.
