small vs. big shrooms of the same species
    #2339716 - 02/16/04 02:40 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I read that mushrooms grow so quickly because the cells enlarge, not because of cell division.
My question is, would a small/medium sized mushroom contain just as much psilocybin as a big one (of the same variety)? Or is the potency definitly dependant on size?

actuslly smaller ones tend to be more potent...theres nearly as much psilocybin in in mushrooms just stages after the pinning as there are in fairly large sized ones...you really wont notice much of a difference either way but the bigger ones aremore fun to eat i think

I've heard this question time and time again but have never heard about cells enlarging instead of dividing. That would make a good point in the never ending discussion of aborts vs. full grown mushrooms.

im not too sure on the answer to your question myself.


but i did, one time fall through a rabbit hole. i hate 2 or 3 small mushrooms of the usual kind that i pick from a local field, and experienced one of the craziest trips ive ever ridden on.
