Philosophers Stones - Mexicana
    #2112810 - 11/16/03 09:57 PM (13 years, 21 days ago)

I know this has been mentioned in the searches but i could not get a direct answer.

If wanted a dose of fresh truffles to be comparable to 20g of mexican P.Cubensis how much would i need to take?

Is the trip on philoshophers stones more positive generally then shrooms (i have read) ?

Is there less nausea?

what do they taste like in comparison?

If you mean 20g fresh:
a common shroom dose (cubensis) is 30g. a common 'truffles' dose is 15 g. so do the math :wink:



(answer: 10g philosophers stones :laugh: )

They taste worse than fresh mushrooms - trying to eat them fresh is a non-starter. I dry and capsule them.

I prefer cubensis - just seem to be more comfortable physically for me. Not that the stones cause nausea, I just tend to get more of a hangover from mexicana stones.

Philosophers Stones are what Dr. Steven pollock called his first batch of Cosmic Camote or "Comotillos.
They are not truffles. That is a Dutch term used by some of the smart shops when refering to the sclerotia of P. mexicana and p. tampanensis. It was Dr. Pollock who first sold sclerotia through the mail in High Times magazine and other subculture mags of the late 1970s and eary 1980s before he was murdered on his own doorstep with a bullet to his head.

I thought they tasted pretty horrible, my friends and I all called them Mexican wallnuts. We each took about 7 grams dry to equal 3.5 g of normal cubs.

Yes, you can read about Dr. Pollock at my site at this URL:

http://mushroomjohn.com/pollock1.htm

What is funny is that I was talking on the phone to Dr. Andrew Weil who told me about the murder. Seems Pollock was talking to Paul Stamets about 15 minutes before he was murdered. A day later Paul Stamets Told Andy about the murder and i later that same day talked to Andy and he informed me of it.

There is still a $150,000 dollar reward for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of whomever was responsible. His first girlfriend is still a personal friend of mine for many years since the middle 1970s.
