How potent are caps compared to stems?
    #3405178 - 11/24/04 07:23 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hey, Tripped a few times now and i love the taste of the stems, they are nice to put in ure mouth and chew, but the caps taste almost powdery and while they dont taste of much the texture makes me gag, last time i did 60g of fresh ecuadorians. tripped like a bitch for 10 hours and id rate some parts reaching level 5, but i didnt eat many of the caps, got me wondering, are most of the active ingrediants in the stems rather than tha caps? how much benefit do you get from eating the caps?

Cheers for any replys! :smile:

Look at the top of your page ^^^^ Click where it says 'search posts'.  There was a good thread on this not more than a week ago.  But just in case...potency differs from mushroom to mushroom.  Sometimes caps have more psilocybin, sometimes stems.  Eat both :thumbup:

Yeah, I read it in the FAQ I think that they are the same, or rather there is no good evidence supporting that either caps or stems are more potent.
Kinda funny though cause lots of people I know think that caps are better.
I've even heard a few people insist that eating the bottom of the bag is the best cause of all the spores at the bottom, where spores definately don't contain any psilo.  wierd, I guess people here something and get it stuck in their head. :grin:

They are not always the same, it's not that easy. Go test a bunch of shrooms and I'd bet my life each one will have a different level of psilocybin in the caps and stems. They may be close, and some might have the same amount, but it's not as simple as saying "They are the same"

They are the same. I actually prefer the stems to caps because of the consistency.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.
