This was our first "prize" find. We named the big one O.G. he would have died if we had not found him and he sent us on a fanastic voyage! We were seeing animation and feeling fine. We promised you pics and here he is. How "chunky" can they get? Could you imagine what your brain would be on this one?!?!?!?

if you eat a shroom that has maggots growing in it, will they make you sick? any way to get rid of them before consumption?

I had some maggot filled mushrooms once and upon drying them they all crawled out (was kinda gross). As for your health, Im pretty positive they wont harm you, and actually are full of protein :x

Yeah, they crawl out when you dry the mushrooms.

the maggots won't harm you, but once they start excreting thier digestive fluids inside the mushrooms, some very nasty bacteria and/or mold can take over. you can be severely food-poisoned by eating rotten produce of almost any kind, mushrooms are no exception.

actually mushrooms are rather a shining example.
spoiled plant matter is bad, but meat is far worse due to more virulent bacterium, mushrooms are closer to meat in this way, they are also host to generally more toxic molds than most vegitables and fruits, also they spoil muh faster.

you must of course assume that maggots dont work as a preservatory factor.

now, mushrooms make you somehat ill anyay at first,
they arent actually "edible" and therefore are harsh to your digestive system sometimes causing vomiting, which if youve ever done on shrooms, youll find is an intense and disgustingly retched expereince of almost religous proportions.

the idea that ive consumed live maggots would not help me contain my haul! but rather expediate the mental side of nausea. which is usually already well triggered by the taste and *ugh* AFTER-taste

food poisoning takes about 24-48 hours to kick in.
im pretty sure it doesnt help that these mushrooms grow on fecal mater.

big spoiled mushrooms are risky

I boiled O.G for tea and the maggots RAN! But the straining method I use we don't get any of the yucky when we drink it. Thank god! He was a beast and luckly didn't make us sick. He was UUUGGGLLLYYY though!

boiling also kills pretty much all the psilocybin.

you dont want to boil them man. Strain it out in cold water.

I kinda like vomiting sometimes it feels so much better to puke everything out its quite a relief hehe.

Mitch, we've debated the heat psilocybin thing before. I'm still not sure how stable it is.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Forum3&Number=2822951&Forum=,f3,&Words=psilocybin%20heat&Searchpage=0&Limit=25&Main=2819927&Search=true&where=bodysub&Name=&daterange=0&newerval=&newertype=&olderval=&oldertype=&bodyprev=#Post2822951

All I know is that I made tea with some cubes the other night and still had a CRAZY experience.

i would argue your experience would have been more intense if the mushrooms were emulsified into liquid.

the tea extraction might indeed produce the same effect as consumption of raw material because the loss of potency could be compensated by the speed of uptake. thus outrunning a rapid tolerance for a more intense trip.

psilocybin does indeed break down, it oxidizes hence the blue, oxidization has many catylists such as water, heat, light, etc.

no i cant prove it, but i still like to dry my mushrooms quickly in a dry, cool, dark place. with dessicant present.

essentially the same way i would treat any pharmaceutical that i did not want to de-potentize.


my advice based on my beleif would be to stir the mushrooms, well-pureed into a cold beverage, thus allowing rapid absorbtion and minimising the possibility of chemical degredation due to heat.

still, tea is properly made as temperatures shy of boiling.
i forget the temperature of chemical death for psilocybin, but i recall it was pretty high.

I think psilocin breaks down under low heat, but psilocybin won't unless very high heat.

you could just mix powdered mushrooms in juice or iced tea and drink it down.

Ive had tea many times, and it was always great, but nothings better than chewing a fresh cap up until its mush in your mouth and swollowing it. You get use to the taste, me persoanally, it never bothered me :smile:

Well, just a question i havent been able to answer myself. What is the best way to boil a mushroom tea. I mean many people have posted ways to do it, but im trying to keep in mind the possible declination of psilocybin and psilocin. What is the best way to make a tea fairly potent, and hot, not boiling but hot, without destorying the chemicals?
Any ideas?

Peace

well, tea is never meant to be boiled, at least not with the agent in it.

tea water is meant to be bolied away, refilled, then boled.

then poured to steep over the medium you wish to consume.

the trick is that you dont want to boil the flavour, you want it near boiling, the water sould be superheated, but allowed to cool to the threshold of boiling.

i dont know why. and im looking at the clock and realizing that ive only been tripping 3 hours but it seems like forever.... BUT,

you then cover the steeping pot with a tea towl or cozy or what-the-british-ever and let it sit in the hot stuff untill you wish to drink it, at which point, it should still be hot.

you may flavour your tea with honey, lemon, sugar, gossip, blah blah blah.


but most importantly you must remember not to put the medium (in this case shrooms) into boiling water!

your not cooking taters here!


or you could just put them in a slurpee if they taste so bad that you would put yourself through european customs just to get them down...

one way or the other youre going to be dirty and half naked by sunrise.

Cooking food gone bad will not save you any illness.

The bacteria/mold can secrete toxins that are completely unaffected by the heat, and you will still get sick.

(Do you hear the voice of experience here?)

If it's gone bad, ditch it.
