Psylocin oxidation
    #3369492 - 11/16/04 05:32 PM (12 years, 27 days ago)

I thought I read somewhere that psylocin is broken down into inert compounds when exposed to oxygen. Therefore if I was to dry out and encapsulize some mushrooms with a relatively high psylocin content, such as cubensis, how much would this reduce the potency of the mushrooms?

In other words, would grinding up and putting cubes into gel caps cause them to lose some of their potency from psylocin oxidation?

Just say NO to the War on Drugs.

From my knowledge, no, go ahead and make those caps, and pop pop pop! Sorry to be a nuisance.

Its psilocin (assuming you don't mean psilocybin)

And that should be gone after even drying those cubes.

You're not like the others. You like the same things I do. Wax paper, boiled football leather... dog breath. We're not hitch-hiking anymore, we're riding!

Psilocybine is water soulable. It becomes psilocine in your body when you eat the shrooms. It occurs through amination. You are getting high from shrooms with high wuantities of psilocybine, although there are four major chemicals int he shrooms which contribute to the high and all apparently are similar in actuon when taken orally. that inclusdes psilocine, psilocybine, baeocystine, norbaeocyustine and the newly discovered compound aeruginescine fou nd in Gymniopilus aeruginacens.

I might add that my colleague Tjakko Stijve reported a new compound in some specimens i sent to him from Thailand of P. cubensis. So far no one has worked on it chemically.

It is similar tot he other psychoactive trytamines in its structure.

Maybe next year I can get someone to play with it in Europe. The specimens are on deposit at Nestles in Switzerland.
