I Thought I Found Some Shrooms!!!!!
    #3346617 - 11/11/04 03:01 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I live next to a very big cow pasture. It has Tons of cows and what not and tons of cow crap. So anyway i did my research on shroom hunting for quite a while; so one night me and my homeboy went to go look for some shrooms we went into the cow pasture and we saw some shrooms growing from the many piles of cow manure. So we gathered about 25 shrooms or so and brought them back to my house we identified them as being psilocybe cubensis. BUT they did not turn blue at all. Why is this? so we kinda risked it all and ate them i had about 15 or so and my friend had about 10. And NOTHINHG Happened? Im guessing they were not the right kind or something. So my main question is , is it even worth going out to that field to look for more shrooms or does the whole field have "Duds"?

Assuming that you are still alive, why would you ever eat shrooms that you weren't 100% sure of? Not all mushrooms that grow in pastures or even directly on the dung are hallucinogenic. Bruising blue is a good indicator but even then it's not 100%. there are shrooms that look very similar to magic but will kill you instead. Do some more research before going out again or come on here with some pics. There are plenty of knowledgable people that would help in ID with them.

Wow there seems to be a huge influx of people eating mushrooms they haven't identified properly. What the hell makes you think they are cubensis if they don't bruise blue? There are NO mushrooms with purple veils, and purple-brown spore prints that grow on dung that don't bruise blue. Cubensis are really one of the hardest mushrooms to MISidentify.

One of these days you people are going to eat something that is actually poisonous and your liver will fail.

You don't need to worry about if that field will produce actives. You need to worry about if the mushrooms you ate are potentialy fatal. You need to worry about learning a thing or two before even thinking about going back out to the fields to pick mushrooms.

When are people going to learn that if you're ignorant in this hobby, you'll end up dead?

NEVER EAT MUSHROOMS THAT YOU HAVE NOT 150% IDENTIFIED CORRECTLY!

Wrong dude, I used to find mushrooms that resembled cubes in the PNW, growing out of cow dung or cow fields. They didnt bruise blue. Flying saucer shaped yellowish cap fading to white with purplish tints. White stalk with purple stained veil and purpllish grey gills. I have been finding them ALL over the place lately in tall grass soil and woodchip mix when I hunt for cyans

I agree with gumby that a cube is one of the easiest mushrooms to identify. They bruise blue and have a ring. If you don't have at least those two characteristics, they most likely are not cubes. If you pick a shroom and it doesn't bruise blue in a very short time after breaking the stem, then don't eat it (UNLESS you have positively identified it as something else- most likely won't be psilocybin active if it doesn't blue).

That doesn't match up with the habitat of cubensis. I also didn't hear any mention of a spore print.

I found a mushy that looked like a big older cubensis the other day purple on the cap but had a white veil and didnt bruise the first time I misidentified off the jump I tossed it but it really looked like a cube Ive never seen anything like it the gills were a deep purple and gills were closer together than a cube and the gills were detached from the stem a little circle around stem but wasnt the usual agaricus I find. Any Ideas? Also I found some cubes with white veils and real light light gills they were definatly cubes but they made me question them they bruised blue but not your typical cube.

Yeah bro listen to Gumby worry about knowing what your doin before worryin if theres actives out there
