Looking for a Definitive Sclerotia Potency
    #1126283 - 12/09/02 09:32 PM (18 years, 7 months ago)

Ok, I've combed through TFSE but have yet to find a definitive description of sclerotia potency.

From what i have gleened from the old posts is that it is comparible to p. cubs in terms of wet weight. This would mean that the standard 1/8 of an ounce dry dose would be 35g dry for both. However, because of the difference in moisture content, the dry dose of sclerotia will be about 3x the dry dose of fruit bodies.

Summary:
One standard (1/8oz or 3.5g dry fruit) dose in wet weight: 35g
One standard (1/8oz or 3.5g dry fruit) dose in dry weight: 10.5g

Anyone care to agree/disagree

It has less water, so the dry weight dosage is the same, but the wet is different.
Only ~30% of sclerotia is water, as opposed to ~90% for shrooms. So, 3.5g dry sclerotia = 3.5g dry shrooms, but 35g wet shrooms = 5g wet sclerotia. Now, this is just based on what I've read, I've never grown sclerotia (Though I am highly interested). If I have something wrong, anyone who knows anything please correct me.

30% of fresh sclerotia is dry matter and 10% of fresh mushrooms is dry matter. All things being equal, fresh sclerotia is roughly 3 times the potency (and dry weight density) of fresh cubensis.

Dry weight potency is roughly equivilent for both with some reporting dried sclerotia a bit weaker than dried cubensis. The reported weaker potency could be related to the density of the dried sclerotia. It is very hard and stone like. Without grinding or thorough chewing the sclerotia is difficult to digest and assimilate. Dried sclerotia swallowed whole may come out looking similar to the way it went in with little to no side effects.

Reportedly, larger and older sclerotia are more potent. Also, cooler slower grown sclerotia are reportedly superior.
