No Potency?
    #1165430 - 12/23/02 06:11 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Have been harvesting EQ's from the Hawks eye now for about a week and this is my second time taking them, the first time a few days ago with my girlfriend we took about 2.5 g's each only to get the giggles and whatnot a hour and a half later.

today using a buddy's scale I took 2.8 grams and 2 extra caps and a stem. Here I am 3.5 hrs later feeling the same as I did before I Started.

What gives? can it be how I am drying the shrooms? I just leave them out in my room until they dry out, if they dont get dry, i slice them open to allow the stem to dry. I used the PF tek to the T and I dont think it could be my method of growing because I wouldnt have mushrooms if that was the case.

Anyhoo, is there anything I can do to get higher potency out of my mushrooms? I have syringes from ralphster on the way, hopefully I wont have this problem.

I am picking them when the veil just opens or right before if I can catch it.

Hmmmmmmmm....odd. First a few questions for you:

What ingredients do you use in your substrate?

How warm does your room get?

You may want to dry them at a faster rate with a fan, then possibly a dessiccant chamber.

Maybe a long drying time allowed much of the active chemicals to oxidise. Try using some sort of desiccant.

Ill try using a brown paper bag and seeing if that makes a difference, My substrate contains of the PF Tek, thats exactlly what I used. Thanx for your replies

Also, my room is around 80deg F most of the time.

would using a Dessicant prove beneficial to potency on future flushes? Seems like nice lil expirement to me.

Light should not effect potency during drying at all, it's heat that you need to worry about. While 80 degrees is not high enough to degrade the cube's alkaloids, I would advise that you try drying in a cooler place. Also, a dessiccant chamber should help you a lot.

I think it's you, and not the shrooms (check my giving some to a friend). the curious thing to me is that both you and your girly are both affected. i think some people are just not as sensitive to the chemicals.

I'm the same - 3g does very little to me (though i know they're potent, as 1g knocked my girly sideways for 8h). try higher doses next time, allowing for the tolerance and the set-and-setting thing. presumably our brains will warp with lovely visuals if we take enough. :confused:

good luck!

Hello, thanx for the replies, i dont think i have a tolerance seeing as how its my first and second time EVER doing mushrooms. The only other variables that I could think of other than drying the mushrooms out in the open could be that I am getting inaccurate weights when weighing, but i doubt that is the case also, the 2.8g dose I took last night consisted of about 8-9 whole shrooms.

Too Late, I have B+ hawians and some Puerto Ricans on the way. We will see how those turn out.

2.8 grams of fresh mushrooms is nothing. mushrooms are 90% water, 10g of fresh mush would be about 1g of dry mush. if u want to trip off of fresh mush i suggest taking about 20-21g

They were 2.8g's of dry mushrooms, although they may have not been cracker dry as stated earlier, they were almost dry enough to snap when your crush them.

dude found that growing fruits from cakes left a lot to be desired in the area of potency. Using the same cakes to spawn some dung was a night and day difference when it came to the how potent the fruits were.

sorry man, i've had the same mystery problem, if you look around the forum there's pretty much no answer for it.

It seems that cakes are enough to get decent fruits from but to get the most for you money, bulk is the way to go.

I just had some Eq's I used Rye Berries spawn into horse dung without casing it and man the fruiting is huge and 3g kick me in the ass. Can't wait till my KS, Cambo's are ready to spawn. I did the cakes for awhile and all I got was body buzz then I started using Dung and man they are way more potent.
