think of a dried cap compared to a dried stem....stem is way heavier to cap...just seems common sense to think more "stuff" is in the stem

Yeah, its a myth. A cap might weigh more therefore be 'more potent'.. But if you take the cap with an equally weighed stem they would have the same potency.

There is a difference in alkaloids in different parts of the cap, and in the stem. To answer your question, certain parts of the cap are going to have more alkaloids than certain parts of the stem, and vice versa.

I read this somewhere in the hunting forum.
