Handling mushrooms....
    #3377798 - 11/18/04 07:16 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Ive been growing mushrooms on a moderate scale around 2 kg every month for a few head shops here in the UK, Something I've noticed is whenever I'm handling the mushrooms, after harvesting to remove the vermiculite / bits of casing layer form the base of the stalk, my pupils dilate not the extent as when you eat them but not right for the light levels even direct light doesn't effect them as much its definitely noticeable.

Is this a result of absorbing psilocin/bin present in the water within the shrooms through the skin or is it purely psychomimmetic with my brain acting out what it expects after consumption?

I think you ment psychosomatic...

I don't have the anser to your question but I think it's more imagination than anything else.
Why don't you put on gloves when you handle the shrooms :thumbup:

psychosomatic thats the one!

I wear latex gloves when harvesting and packaging etc but I keep the bits I cut off for straining into mushroom tea (nasty) and ill often not use gloves when im processing them as its just for me and friends

It's not the result of absorbing Psilocybin or Psilocin present in the water within the mushrooms through the skin. The active dosage is way too high to reach through the skin if it's possible at all.

Apparently, the one that you absorb by osmosis (I hope that's the right word!) most noticeably is amanita muscaria.

When you see someone or something you like, your pupils dilate slightly because some hormone (can't remember the name) is realised in your brain. Maybe that's what happening.

I believe his pupils could have dilated from that amount of transdermal psilocybin. The psychoactive dose and the physioactive dose are very different. I don't think physioactive is a word but you know what I mean
