A newb question (hate me please)
    #2099431 - 11/13/03 12:38 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I always wondered how mushrooms are weighed out. For instance, say i purchased an ounce of mushrooms.. would this measurement have been taken when the mushrooms were dry or wet? Thanks for the help guys.

considering you are in the CA, US, I would say dry (I've never heard of buying wet mushrooms int he states). If you are getting them legally in europe, for example, it'll be wet.

I would have to say that most everyone I know that has ever bought mushies bought them dry.

You could tell if they were wet or dry.

normally it's dry, but you should check on your dealer just to be sure you aren't being fouled around.

also check the condition of the mushrooms(breaked veil). some sellers aren't very nice ppl and they wait until the shroom gets his max size, which as you now is weaker in psychedelic potency...

Polecat, they don't lose much potency as they grow, and they get MUCH bigger.

I think a biggest scam is selling shrooms that aren't cracker dry. Making $$$ on water weight.

unless you know the grower,if the person tried to sell you wet shrooms in USA, you should be a bit concerned.
