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!
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...
