matured mushrooms
    #2549049 - 04/11/04 08:00 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Can anyone tell me about the potency of matured mushrooms? I've read conflicting stories about their potency...some say they loose potency, some say they don't...i've read a lot about people eating matured mushrooms and not getting anything. can anyone shed some light on this?

studies have shown that from flush to flush, potency varies. But in these days with high nutrient substrates, IMO its not a problem. Back when they did the studies it was based on cow field results. If indoor, its more consistent.

Mature shrooms hold the value, but picking right after the cap opens is the best way to preserve it.

they dont really lose potency.. its just the mass to psylicybin(the stuff) content is less. this can be considered potentcy loss but just pick em when the veil is tearing and youll be ok.

I ask cause a friend of mine had some growing, and he was out of town. by the time he got back they matured, and dropped their sporesmost of the caps are beyond flat. How many dry grams do you think he should eat to equal 3.5 grams of mush with veils before breaking?

Is there actually any evidence to show that mushies stop gaining potency after they start to sporulate?

AFOAF has tripped dozens of times on shrooms of various maturity levels and seems to think dry weight is really what matters. For instance, fully opened sporulating shrooms are as potent by weight as shrooms whose viels have not torn.

doesnt a psilocybe cubensis mushroom produce psilocybine,psilocyn and other substances until it dies?
Or does it stop produces these substances at a given time?

from what I was taught in school-everything does what its suppose to until it perishes or until it is no longer able to it because something has hindered its production.

a psilocybine containing mushroom will continue to produce psilocybine until it dies (it may produce less due to it ageing and dying but it still produces-----CORRECT?

They will be slghtly less potent. It isn't a significant enough loss in potency to warrant eating any more. There will be a very slight difference in psilcybin/mass. Eat an eigth, or five g's, or whatever you were going to before.
