Hunting gyms yeilds very unexpred results(PICS!)
    #3234172 - 10/08/04 08:09 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

So uhhh... I was walking around the woods near campus today looking for Gyms because its fall and the woods are primarily hardwoods, when I spotted a ton of broken tree limbs and trees down. I went over there to check for mushrooms. Found a few random mushrooms that weren't what I was looking for, but then I spotted this...



Thought something strange was definately going on inside that container, so I opened it up. Here's what I found:



Can't tell what's in those jars? Need a closer look? Ok:




Yeah, thats right. I found around a pound(1 lb.) of pot. Old brown smelly pot. I called my roommate(smokes a lot) to tell him about it and he came back into the woods and we examined it more closely. This was some NICE quality stuff. Not a single seed to be found and you could still see the trichromes even though it had turned brown. Most of the stuff had succumb to fungus because it wasn't 100% dry, but some of it had not.

Anyways, aside from the pot, I also found some mushrooms. Nothing too special.

Some small Oyster mushrooms:


Some type of ear fungus:




Amanita virosa or similar species:


Here's some damage from one of the 3 hurricanes/tropical storms that came through this year. This tree was probably 6 feet in diameter at the base. The uprooted portion was probably 8-9 feet tall. Huge ass tree. It took out about 4 more trees on it's way down. Trees were down all over the woods.



And thats the end... More pictures to come sometime later on because I'm going hunting for cubes tomorrow.

I've never seen pot brown like that. Is it usable?

Roomie grabed a small bag to try it and he said it was the most god awful thing he'd ever had. We left the rest there. I remember where its at if anyone knows of any use for old moldy pot.

Perhaps hash could be made from it(after all, the Trichromes are still intact). I left it where it was though. We burnt some of it and it definately was pot.

What a find!

Makes me wounder what happened to the guy who left it there.

All those downed trees should make excelent habitat for mushrooms here in a few years. Most of the gyms I find are on down trees that have been there long enough to get covered in briers, usually wild rose bushes up this way. The briers increase humidity and provide shade from the direct sunlight coming though the hole left in the canopy when the tree fell.

The wood ears look like Auricularia auricula, nice find.

Too funny!
Years ago my friend left 2 ounces of good bud and $1200 cash in a phone booth. We went back 10 minutes later and it was gone.
Someone had a lucky day!

OMG!! Buddy actually smoked that??  I'd suggest taking it camping to burn and keep the mosquitoes away.  Yuck.  Looks like brown, moldy shake to me.  Even green that would look bad. 

Please tell me you USA people smoke better herb than that!!?????  Do you need us to send more down there?

I didn't think it was this bad.  I'm writing my MP tomorrow to tell him about the poor smoking conditions which exist in the great land south of the border.

Nice shroomy pics thoug :wink:  I'm still too wimpy to post mine (no actives) ... someday :wink:

hahaha, good find man. I wouldnt let that stuff anywhere near my lungs, but hey, still a good find nonetheless. Like Hyrdo says, it does look kind of shakey, and not just due to the brown moldyness. You should dump the pile in a residential neighbourhood and put a bit of gasoline on it and light it up, I'm sure piggers would be driving from miles away following the scent.

Dude that brown shit. Grind it up as fine as possible, then mix it with 100% isopropyl (spelling?) alcohol for like a day, then filter it through some fine mesh and let the filtered goop evaporate and you will be left with extracted has oil. It's worth a shot me and some buds found some old forgotten about shitty plants and did this after it got stored improperly and mold grew on parts ( discarded the moldy parts) and it worked.

I would try a hash method... whoever left it there ruined it already and leaving it could further degrade the material triches

Might try the hash at some point. Think I might go back and get it. If I did the hash oil, I'd DEFINATELY do the IPA method, just in case of any dangerous spores. Hopefuly the IPA would kill them. I'm not sure butane has any disinfectant properties.

Gumby checkout the forums below for good information on the best way to do this. CC is to cannabis as the Shroomery is to shrooms.

gumby, do NOT use ISO.  The thought of all those nasties left behind with your oil makes me shiver.

check out our harvesting/drying forums at hempcultivation.com/420 theres plenty o' recipes for fun with what you have.

oh, and marijuana.com forums have a good bit of posts on recipes, etc.

lucky find, just a lil too late. :laugh:  laffo
