Potency is largely a factor of the mind...Proof inside:
    #2634797 - 05/04/04 12:44 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Some of you may remember, but I posted a question about Creeper potency in this forum not so long ago. It turned into a long and tendious argument that led to nothing more than condescending "off-topic" forum style bashing between shroomerites. Some swore creepers were extremely potent while others complained it lacked "the kick" experienced in other strains.

Anyways, my friends complained about my cat's creeper strain and its lack of potency. They said my cat's past batches were much better. I knew shroom potency didn't vary significantly between strains and made it my personal mission to prove their wrong.

A couple weeks later, I gave them an 1/8th each of the exact same strain, creeper. I lied and told them it was a different strain and exclaimed how my other buddies praised the new strain's high potency.

That night, they took the shrooms with the predisposed notion that this "new strain" was going to give them a great trip. And it did.

In conclusion, potency is largely a mental game.

I agree! a cube is a cube!


edit=let me add,that if there was a significant difference in strains ,someone would have come up with a "super Cubie",by now!

Pisses me off to hear that my cat's batch were inferior, when the true fact is, they are dumb asses.

Z
i agree to an extent, most cube strains aren't that different than the others, but on the other hands some strains, batches, seem significantly stronger than others - even if grown on the same grains, substrate etc.....

Of course.  Unlike cyans or etc, general cubie strains, like GT, EQ, Creep, etc don't seem to vary in potency much.

Yes, some people have said substrate does affect potency, but it is yet to be proven :smile:

Creepers are just fine...My first Hawaiians were sorry ass shrooms but later batches were great...i never knew why they were bad but they were...Creepers are very potent when grown properly

i agree i think the creepers are pretty potent - strange how sometimes it differs from batch to batch even though it may be from the same mother print.

my first shrooms were EQ's and MAL grown on PF cakes, and people said the duration just wasnt there. i personally tripped my ass off and thought they were really good. so the next time i grew HAW on finch seed and told them that these would definitely be way more potent and might be too much for em cuz they were grown on a subtrate that makes shrooms even more potent. and guess what they said.. "hell yeah man, definitely way better, i shroomed all night!"

set and setting plays a big part too

I know this has a somewhat of an effect I'm sure ,but is there any documentation stateing that one strain of "Psilocybe Cubensis" is stronger in potency than another strain of the same?

Yes many times but its really small when you are talking about cubensis...Copelandias are very potent but they are a different species

we are talking about cubes right?
I just feel like Zwieback0,I think it is so minute in difference,that you will make up the rest buy positive thoughts,makeing yourself believe something to be true when in all reality its such a small difference that would go unnoticed any other time.

Yeah we are talking about Cubies and i am glad someone finially agrees with me...Cubes are so close you cant really tell a difference because every tripp is different and set and setting play a very important role...Sorry i thought you were asking about all different types...I grow a Florida strain of Pan Copelandias also that are very potent and they arent that much harder at all
