Effects of Stems and Caps?
    #3051699 - 08/26/04 03:26 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Just curious, I have always heard that stems and caps have different effects. Caps are more visual and stems are more of a body fry. Is there any truth to this?

Ok, Ok.

I know I might get shit for this.

I accept that, by weight, all parts of a shroom might have the same psilocybin.

But it is in my experience that what Bob Jizz (what a name!) says is true. I have noticed it, although it is definitely not certain, and might just have been reinforced by people telling me it.

Is there some possible explanation for this theory? I.E., caps are heavier and therefore affect u more, but the weight difference of a few grams just escapes you, and caps seems more potent?

I just base this on two trips - one mostly caps, and the other mostly stems. The results were very visual on the one hand, and very bodily on the other. But I am very very aware of the reality of preconvieved notion and setting on a trip, and since I heard this theory (stems vs caps) even before I tried shrooms, and had that in mind on both these trips, expecting visuals on the one hand and a bodily high on the other, that might have affected me.

Any others thoughts?

I think you've answered your own question by suggesting that it is probably due to weight differences or placebo effect of prior suspicians about differences between the two.

What you think will happen during a trip is very often exactly what happens during a trip.

So often, people decide what their trip will be like before they even eat their shrooms. It is uncanny.
