Northern Cali Shroom Hunting
    #3092688 - 09/04/04 10:04 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hello, I live in southern california. I tried my first shroom earlier this year, and ever since then ive been really interested in mycology. Their isnt many mushrooms down here, but me and my buddy plan on drivin up north near San Fran/Humboldt/Sonoma. We are plannin on going wild mushroom hunting. Neither of us have done it, but are both really excited to experience it. We are in search of psilocybe. If you have any advice or information about northern california hunting it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

My advice is to get out of Cali for the reason you mention. You will have little to NO luck anywhere in that state other than a street dealer or a friend. And seeing whereas you cant have spores sent to that state that is another strike against you in terms of home cultivation but never give up hope, my friend. You know the old saying: "Where there is a will......."

OK well best time to look is a day after rain. Watch for a good rain, and if they next day is hot, it should be an ideal day to look.

I live in the bay area and I'll let you know that PLENTY of shrooms grow up here, you just have to wait until the end of september, or sometime during october (once it starts to rain). Last year I found a bunch of different strains growing all over my neighborhood and in Frisco. I suggest looking through parks and grassy areas with lots of trees.

Btw, one of my friends just came back from Humboldt with a whole shit load of shrooms.

I live in Eureka and I only know of one place, but its on government property I guess and you're fucked if you get caught. I use to pick em in Fortuna, but that place has been raped to hell by school kids. I know they grow out in the Loleta cow fields a lot... but I was never that dedicated since the shroom seizure.

There aren't really any active mushrooms that would grow in cow fields in Cali. Perhaps Pan subbs, but I doubt it.

You're hunting at the wrong time of year, don't get your hopes for psilocybes up too much :smirk:.  You'll have a much better chance come fall/winter.

I wasn't saying that no shrooms at all grow in Cali I was saying that the chances of finding actives are low compared to the nighboring states to the north. Maybe yu can tell us what kind of shrooms you found in the bay area.

Hey,

Good luck. Don't let folks discourage you. Check out "Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World," which identifies several actives up here. And, just a tip, liberty caps DO grow in Humboldt County -- at least they did, I know for a fact, 20 years ago.

But up here, people are looking for the potent wavy caps -- strictly for identification purposes, of course. And there are plenty of Amanita Muscaria up here, also, but one has to prepare properly to use this perfectly legal mushroom.

In the meantime, pray for rain. We should be getting some, soon and that will bring them out.

Peace,

Hail, Soma!

I remember last year during the peak of the winter season I found some Cyanescenes in my neighborhood.

I figure we need at least 1-2" of rain before they pop up in Humboldt. As of today, weather's not looking good for that for a while. Hopefully by Mid-October? Watch this board, and the weather I guess, if you want to know if and when a trip to the North Coast is worth it.
