Just curious how much rain it takes to lessen the potency on cubes. The reason I ask is that every day I go pick from my local spot in the evning, and every afternoon like clockwork we get thunderstorms . So essentially every day I'm picking the shrooms that have matured from the rains of the previous day, and just before I pick these freshies they have been rained on again. Sometimes it rains just a little, sometimes it rains enough that they are completly saturated. Anyway, I don't know if a mature cube getting wet makes it less potent or not, I think I remember reading that somewhere, but I can't find any real info on it. If the rain is making them less potent, then I'm going to try getting to them before the afternoon rains start, even if it'll be a little more sketchy. cheers Billy
I'm not sure that any amount of rain conducive to the growth of P. cubensis would effect the potency. Concievably, enough rain to watterlog them might wash out some of the active psilocybian compunds in the carpophores, but i don't think it would present a problem and i've never seen any documentation on the subject.
Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
