The Sause of psilocin degredation =O2? drying expierement
    #2168796 - 12/08/03 12:59 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Okay so here is my question.

during the drying process of mushrooms, is psilocin lost through contact with O2? if this is so, couldnt one just use a co2 tank to flood the drying chamber, removing any O2 from the chamber, and therefore preserving all of the psilocin?



"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

Psilocin is usually broken down by oxidation, which basically means anything that can easily donate an electron. It breaks down really fast -- I don't think you could say it's just from one thing, in particular.

Psilocybin breaking down into psilocin is different, though -- a large part of this is likely due to random enzymes that are present. A way to test this would be to see if sonicating the crap out of the product from an extraction would prolong its shelf-life.

This might work with dry ice. But you have to make sure the dry ice is safe enough to put in drinks. Tell people when you are buying the dry ice for drinks, so ask if the hardware centre has acotone free dry ice that is safe.

I was thinking about this all last week.

The best to keep psilocin from oxidation happen. Is to, do the dry ice TEK and vaccum seal everything in jars. O2 has a big part in oxidation.
