In Holland, several gymnopilus species are said to be very common in the fall. I have a question about them, because I read that not all over the world gymnopilus mushrooms are psychoactive. How is that for the European ones? I hope someone knows more about this!
Well, the species growing in Holland is g. junonius (or spectabilis) and these are said to be active (the well-known Big Laughing Gym ). My problem is, that there is this rumor that the activity varies on different places in the world. For example, western US-specimens are said to be non-active, while East US-specimens are said to be VERY active. European gyms are sometimes said to be non-active, but other sources say this is bullshit. I read a story about an Englishman who tripped very nice on just about 5 grammes...
So: what is true?? Maybe this would be also a relevant discussion for the rest of this forum!
