Mushroom tea and potency
    #3412458 - 11/26/04 03:26 PM (12 years, 17 days ago)

I'm currently drying some mushrooms and I don't use heat 'cuz that would break psilocybine (if temp. > 38 C)
But what about mushroom tea? Wouldn't that greatly reduce the potency because of its high temperature? I cannot imagine this to work, however, it's often recommended as a way to get the stuff we want..!

yeah it works but you can recognize a loss of potency. look into empty capsules.

I've never noticed any loss of potency, tea is my preferred method for tripping. The boiling temperature isn't high enough to break down psilocybin..You can probably find what that temp is somewhere on erowid. Empty capsules are a good call too ^^^

I dont like tea much, makes my head buzz and stuff... Ive had loss in potency from making shroom tea, even when puttin the shrooms in after the water has boiled and just lettin them sit as the water cools, i'm thinkin my drying technique MIGHT have had someting to do with it also....

I cant complain about the mushrooms losing potency. Also I like tea cause its more ritual in it, for me that is.

And potency potency, I drink beer as well as I drink vodka even with the beer being less potent! :grin:

Only eated semis and not in high doses, cubes I only have had them as tea. The friends come rolling in after 30/45 minutes.

I've noticed a drop in potency with tea also, but only with dry shrooms.  I think that I under-estimate how many I should use though.  Whenever possible, make the tea with fresh shrooms, and drink it soon.  Of course, I always eat a couple while the tea is steeping.  Not much loss there. :grin:

Imagine you want to get drunk you can drink 20 beers or 10 potent vodkas.
I mean IF the shrooms really lose that much in potency, which I never noticed, just put some more in the tea next time.

I am in no hurry with trippin so I wait calmly before the friends join me, not eating in between just preparing for the train to come... :wink:

Ill be sticking with my thee. And so far mostly used dry mushrooms in it, no problem.

Yes, it does, the whole larger surface area thing. It usually comes on within 15-20 minutes for me, sometimes even sooner...longest it's taken was 35 minutes.

I only ever make shroom coffee these days,it hits hard and fast and if you filter out the muck and throw it in the trash there is almost no chance of nausea.

I find tea to be stronger than just eating them. First I powder the shrooms. Then I add them to just boiled water(off the heat now) and stir for 1-2 mins. Filter and enjoy!

Last time I drank mushroom tea I held every mouthful in for a few minuites. 10 mins later it hit hard. Tea all the way for me!

Yeah, tea is the ticket if you want a quick liftoff. Sometimes I just love sitting down with a bunch of fresh shrooms and chowing. The trip comes on slower, but I think it lasts longer. At least for me it does.

I have never puked off of the tea, but anything over 30 grams wet and I tend to spew. Never have off the dry, but now I always make it into tea just in case. :drinkcoffee: Tea all the way, and while the potency probably goes down some, when you are drinking 7 dried grams it doesn't really matter!
