whats more potent? caps stems or both????
    #3384392 - 11/19/04 03:07 PM (12 years, 20 days ago)

Its been so long since I have done the magic shroom, so now that I have been successful in growing some for myself, I forget. Do I just eat the caps? Or the whole thing? Whats the difference? Thanks!!

Stems and caps are equally potent.

Can you eat aborts?? I harvested them before the heads turned black, but they have a much darker cap then the others. They are SO small, is there a point? Safe to eat?? :rolleyes:Thanks.

actually belly this question was asked a few days ago and one of the mods came in and told that caps are a little more potent than stems. is it enough of a diff to care about? highly doubt it.

Ok maybe there are a bit higher, but ya the difference wont be noticed at all. You can eat aborts, I heard they were really potent, not sure though.

you still will need to eat a bunch of aborts

aborts are more potent. the smaller they are the more your size vs potency will be higher. but dont think you should just go pick all your small ones. the best time to pick is right before the veil breaks. it gives you the best results. if i remember correctly after the veil breaks and drops its spores the mushroom quits creating psilocybin (the original magic is still there).

I didn't, I just noticed they stopped growing and started getting darker, and it was time to harvest the cake anyway, so I pulled them as well. Thanks for all the input! I cant wait for tonight. Although one more question for you, my first batch was so small, compared to what I have seen on this forum, and I don't have a clue as to what 2.5 grams is....with no scale...how do I know how much to take? Most of the caps shriveled down to the size of a dime or smaller, when dried. So how many exactly for a level 3, would you recommend?

Blue eye, id recommend not picking aborts till the rest of the mushrooms are done growing, over 2-3 days they will not begin to rot or anything.

Stems or caps more potent, i doubt either are.  If i was to guess id says stems would be more potent.  Caps are where the reproduction happens maybe it spends more theim worken on that then make psilos :smile:.  I have no real clue tho, but eat the entire mushroom :smile:.

Good job on yer first grow.

I personally have recently had a batch of shrooms where the caps seemed to send me into a much higher and more intense trip than the stems, but I do believe that it varies in every individual mushroom, it is never constant. Therefore trying to charge more for a bag of caps is a shady practice...I would encourage trying eating just caps or just stems occasionally, because in my experience there usually is a difference in the trip.

it can vary from shroom to shroom even fruiting from the same mylecial mass, so don't worry about it, mmmkay?

Someone posted a chart just the other day of psilocin and psilocybin levels in different species and most showed that the stems were just a little bit higher. I'm sure its not really enough to matter though.

A friend of mine had picked up two os of mushrooms a while back. I asked him if I could get a 1/4 and he said sure.

He was low on caps so he gave me 9 gramsof stems instead.

I was like "aww, well, thats ok since its nine grams" and smiled inside.

3 grams did me in. Stems are just as potent in my opinion.
