"Gold cap" strain
    #2174832 - 12/13/03 03:53 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I've been told by my friend that he has a hookup for "gold cap" mushrooms. I have no clue what strain they are.

Now where you come in: I'm sure you can't give a positive ID, I'm not expecting one, but could you give me an idea of some strains that could be called "gold caps?"

I know they're definitely active and safe, as the same friend has taken 7+ grams and had nothing but positive results. All he's told me is that they're called "gold caps" and that the gills are purple.

Sorry if this has been posted before, but as you know I can't search right now.

Edit - forgot to add, they will be dried. The description is from after they're dried. I'm sure they're safe, so even if I can't find out which strain my brother and I are splitting an eighth.

When you search you find answers to all the questions you didn't think to ask.

most psilocybe cubesnis have gold caps and dark purple gills/spores. especially when they are dried it is extremly hard to indentify a specific strain.

Perhaps he/she meant "golden flake" mushrooms. Often vermiculite (which is used in cultivation) gets stuck onto dried fungi and the unscrupulous or ignorant market these mushrooms as "golden-flake shrooms" as if they were special or magical. Nope - just vermiculite (and you dont really want to consume vermiculite).

As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know.

yeah and also the cap can look 'golden' when dried. Probably Psilocybe Cubensis as it is the most common shroom, but like deepblue said it's impossible to Identify a strain when dried.
