Big shrooms weaker than small one?
    #1689906 - 07/06/03 01:01 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I've read that size doesn't matter concerning Shroom potency. But it's supposed to be the same concerning cocks, and we know what girls really prefer.
Anyway, I've read that the moment of the picking is THE important parameter, (just at veil tears off).
But someone, not me, no no, took enormous specimens (35g each), and he thought they were weaker than normal one (2 >> 6g each). Is he right?
Did you notice such a thing?

i think it goes like this .. . after the veil breaks and they open, any growth no longer produces psilocybin.. . . so it's the same potency, only distributed throughout more mushroom mass. . . somethin lke that, anyway, highest concentration is right as they are opening, aren't they beautiful.  hehehheheh :crazy2:

It is also conceivable that picking mushrooms when they are smaller would yeiled more mushies. (quanity not weight) i would think so anyway

Why do mushrooms make psilocybin and psilocin in the first place? Does it serve some purpose in the life cycle of the mushroom? Or is at an unexplained thing, like how we have appendexis?

Is the discussion "do animals trip," by any chance? Or were you talking about the main subject of the thread.

No, I was talking about Potency and state of mushroom (i.e. Pin, mature...), link above. The language to describe this is kind of picky since the definition of the word potency does not consider weight.

Can you present any evidence for this claim?

Well, according to Terrence McKenna, it's to get people to cultivate them. %)

>do animals trip?

Considering I've never been anything besides human, no one really knows what makes a person trip, and I have no knowledge of any animal brain's construct, I'd have to say I have absolutely no idea. Many people have notices 'strange' behavior when there poor little pets ingested drugs.

Do cows eat the mushrooms in the field, or do they avoid them? Or do they care if they accidently gobble one up while eating grass?
