Liberty Caps - Loose much potency in drying?
    #1466201 - 04/17/03 04:28 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hey guys...just a few quick questions.
I usually eat around 50-60 fresh liberty caps for a level 3 trip. I just dried some liberty caps for the first time and I chopped up 50 of them and weighed them, it came out to 1.2g dry. However, the dosage calculator approximates that for a level 3 with dried liberty caps it should be about 2.05g. If this was the case it would be more like 80-90 dried shrooms for a dose.
I am just wondering from your personal experience do you guys find that liberty caps loose much potency in drying, or if i usually have 50-60 wet should I stick with that or have more?
Aah I know this post is probably a really common question and yes, I have done a search but all that I could find was that libertys maintain their potency for a long time once they are dried, but nothing on their loss in the process of drying.
Any input greatly appreciated!  :wink:

They do lose a bit of potency after drying ,but not that much.
Anything over a gram is still pretty noticerbal with libs imo

Sorry but liberty caps keep their potency the best of all mushrooms. One batch from 1851, collected and stored in a herbarium sheet at kews gardens in Surrey was recently examined and analysis was performed by thin Paper chromatogaphy and the analysed specimens were found to be as potent as a collection gatherined in Oregon the year before the tests.

Dried libertyc cps have a high psiocybine content and are very potent and one to two grams dried.


and where did you get liberty caps at this time of the year?

I know caps all vary in potency but I usually gather these little psillies from the same small field so id expect them to be related and have roughly equal properties.

I had a cup of tea made from fresh caps, prolly between 15-20 and had OEV's and laughing fits for afew hours , nothing out of the ordinary.

Later the same week I picked about the same number of shrooms but couldn't brew them ( bloody visitors )so I left them in a dry chamber for a few days.

Made tea the same way I always do but had a much more intense trip, I didnt laugh as much as i did previously but OEV's were muchmore prevalant and it seemed to last for longer, or i became less aware of time.

This could be due to the oxidization of psilocin, I dont know whether this converts to psyilocybin or what but the two chemicals  have slightly differing properties that contibute to the whole thing. much like cannabinol and THC in , well you know...

The cake taste's great!
