A potency question that I am sure will spark debate :)
    #1917233 - 09/15/03 02:41 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I guess we'll have to wait for Anno to complete his substrate test to know this for sure so i'd like to clarify that i'm asking this understanding I'll get subjective differing answers.

Do you think that the fruits off of a PF-style cake would be more potent, equally potent, or less potent than fruits off of dung/straw spawned with PF cakes?

From what I've read and thought, here is my prediction. I think that they will produce more psilocybin and grow larger. The reason for this, inmy mind, is more available nutrition. A PF cake is only 1 pint (give or take) and more than half of it is either water or inorganic, non nutritive vermiculite. With this lackof nutrients, no matter how saturated "dunking" gets it, the fruits still cannot perform to full potential. This includes both size and psilocbyin production. The dung/straw contains enough nutrients and moisture that the p cubes can grow out their full potential, potency and size.

Let me know what you think !

My 2 cents:

It would seem that the potency, that is psilocybin/psilosin concentrations would be proportional to the increased size of dung-grown shrooms. I don't think physical size of the basidiocarp is any indicator of potency. In fact overgrown shrooms are less potent. I can't think why any substrate would naturally be more endowed with precursors than any other, so my vote is that there is negligible difference.


Remeber always, that my words here recount a long and beautiful dream. They in no way are reference to real events.

its been asked over and over. People say that mushrooms are stronger on millet. I have no idea. I don't think anyone has actually extracted it out and then measured it to make sure that a strain of a mushroom is more potent than the same strain grown on a different substrate.

I'll wait on Anno substrate tests.
