Dry for me, I cant stand the taste of wet. The ratio is 10:1..so if you had a shroom that weighed 10 grams wet it would weigh around 1 gram dry.

either way i think... the wet ones are good for chopping up into little tiny pieces and putting into a pasta sauce... the dry ones are good for blending up in a coffee grinder and putting on a fruit rollup.. .you cant even taste it.

Either is great with honey. The taste of dry ones makes me gag sometimes it's so bad, wet ones are nasty but eatable for me. Dry however can be ground and consumed quickly in a number of ways. So it can go either way, I say honey is the shit though. Dry/wet dosn't much matter.

wet defentaly, they seem alot more potent wet than dry. mushrooms are about 90% water so the wet to dry ratio would be approxamitly 30g wet = 3g dry, but eat 30g wet and then 3g dry and tell me which is more potent.

It all depends, 30g wet is ROUGHLY 3g dry....but it's not an exact science like people make it out to be. I've had equally crazy trips off both wet and dry of equivlent doses.

well it can't go by just weight, most of the psilocin in the shrooms will break down while drying, and if you look at the percentages there is a significant amount of psilocin in the wet shrooms. So by weight I'd argue wet shrooms are stronger...i.e. take 30g and eat them it'll be a stronger trip than if you took those exact shrooms dried them and then ate them.

I feel so alone...am I the only one to appreciate the wonderful wonderful taste of mushrooms? Anyways, it depends for me, wet tastes like any other mushroom while dry seems to have an interesting dry cheese taste. I couldn't care less about potency, if it's not potent enough i'll just take more damnit!

I have a very hard time stomaching the wet shrooms.  The dry ones are much easier.  I just put some peanut butter on them, and they're like yummy crackers to me.  :smile:

I prefer wet, because you never know what kind of trip you'll get. It's allot harder to guestimate your dosage with wet than it is for dry. Dry is what it is. Wet can fluctuate. What I am getting at is, when we weigh our dosage we never have that Breakthrough because we usually puss the weights out. BUt, wet, now, Everytime I choose wet the trips are most interesting and usually very intense because I had usually taken more than if I would have tried to weigh out the differences. I use to worry about the wieghts, but now I just eat them by number of shrooms or until I feel like that was ENOUGH>

Yes. The ratio is 10:1, for a bone dry shroom. However, you are also forgetting to add in the Psilocin to the wet shroom. So,

If you are figuring a dosage from wet to dry. The wet weighs, roughly, 90 percent more, and is twice as potent because Psilocin, hasn't been destroyed by the drying process. Psilocybin is a stable molecule, Psilocin is not.

I figure, that an ounce wet is equal to a quarter dry, in how potent it is.

An ounce wet, 28 grams, dried to 10 percent water is 2.8 grams.

Then times it by two to account for the Psilocin. So that would be roughly 5.6 but most don't dry their shrooms to 10 percent.

So for an oucne wet, 28 grams at a 85 percent water loss, is 2.8 + 1.4= 4.2 times two is 8.4. So, depending on how dry, and what the psilocin/psilocybin ratios are. You are looking at an ounce wet, being equal potency to between, 5.6g and 8.4 grams dry. OR, a quarter.
