caps more potent then stems?

Are caps more potent then stems? I always take a cap over a stem but is it really more potent?

People on the steets where I live say caps are more potent. They also go around pinching the caps for themselves and getting rid of the stems based on this.

I tend to trust what I hear on the Shroomery over the street knowledge.

There isn't a potency differance.

this is the same rumor going around here, i never paid much attention to it. allthough ive noticed that the caps are easier to eat in my opinion so i do preffer caps over stems anyway.

as a personal myth, I prefer stems because I've always figured the gills couldnt break and fall off, thus losing valuable potency :laugh:

Caps are easier to chew and stuff, but I like stems too.

There really is alot of hype about the caps being more potent around here. I really think it got started so drug dealers could charge more for caps.

Actually, I think I read that caps are more potent by like .00000007% of something so ridiculously small that it doesnt even matter.

But yeah, I agree with the "drug dealers" theory.

in my old hometown( and even soem people here) always used to say that caps were stronger than stems, but there is no evidence to back it up. i think that it is jsut more stimulating to the eye to buy a bag of shrooms that is all caps then jsut a bunch of stems, that is why people think it. i have tripped my fuckin balls off on all stems, so if i was still a pathetic individual who has to buy shrooms because they are too lazy to cultivate them, then i would have no problem with getting a bag full of stems.

This reminds me of the Seinfeld where they try to sell the muffin tops as the best part of the muffin, and then donate the "stumps" to the homeless shelter place, and then the homeless people won't eat them because "where the hell are the tops?!?!"

Yeah, same stuff, different package - as everyone else has mostly said.

In some species it was found that the caps were *slightly* (but really slightly) more potent that the stems, but the amount of specimens tested was small and I wouldn't bet that it was of statistical significance.

For all practical purposes you can assume the caps and the stems equally potent.
