Does Blue Bruising Indicate the Presence of Psiloc
    #3212793 - 10/04/04 07:56 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I remember reading somewhere that if a mushroom bruises blue it indicates the presence of psilocybin, as it turns blue when it oxidizes. Can anyone corroborate this with real life information?

it may be, but psilocybes are not the only mushrooms that bruises blue.
some poisonous ones do as well.

indeed, what blinkidiot said is correct. You can't identify a mushroom by just blueing. so do never eat mushrooms if you're not 100% sure about edibility

I break up my shrooms before the dehyrator usually to save space(with bigger flushes) and they stain very dark blue...I've been told by ppl that I'm losing potency...cause it is said that the bluing is psilocin oxidizing...but if theres any loss I don't notice it...neither does anyone else...I also dry at 135 degrees F...some will tell you also that heat degrades potency...again I haven't noticed any difference at all...even fan dried and then put in a desiccant chamber...all the same to me and others that have sampled.. keep in mind while this is a great site full of great info...there also are the rumors...you know its a rumor when you go against the "rule" time and time again and get results that break those rules...one being the heat thing..I'm sure if shrooms were exposed to heat for a long ass period of time degridation would happen...but I have yet to see it...I have even dried at the full out(with another dehydrator without a heat adjuster) the shrooms were dry within hours and knocked ppl on their asses...another rumor is that they are most potent before the viel breaks...complete bs imo..and I feel they gain enough size and possibly weight to make it worth it...the beauty of a mature set of cubensis is reason enough which I've said before...but they don't lose anything on aborts or shrooms picked before the viel breaks...anyways while it may be psilocin oxidizing since its said they lose most of it during drying anyways...but who knows if its actually psilocin oxidizing...or even that its lost during drying...sorry for the rant but some of these rumors are repeated constantly with no one saying anything against them so its assumed as fact..I thought a lot of these things were fact until I started experimenting myself
