is verm safe to ingest?
    #3418344 - 11/28/04 03:56 AM (12 years, 13 days ago)

my friend of a friends brothers exgirlfriends room mates cat was just picking some aborts of its PF cakes, and she saw that there was bits of verm all over them. she washed as much as she could off, but she was just wondering if it is toxic to eat at all?

cheers

verm is as safe as that toxic compound dihydrogen monoxide.

A small quantity is not harmful.

you will poo gold? never had this happen to me magash... hrm.

sometimes it's hard to get all the verm out of your mushies before injestion/drying, but i've never really had problems with it. i wouldn't eat a PF cake though, that's just asking for trouble.

i find it funny that some people seem to think those "gold flecks" indicate chemicals in the mushrooms like bluing does... hrm. nope, it's just verm. i had to give my friend a bag of "gold flecks" so he'd believe me. some people are hardheaded, no?

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."

You know in researching medicinal mushrooms and talking to people that grow them for legit established trade, they don't even let the mycelium fruit. There is a much higher concentration of active consituents in the mycelium itself. Thus it seems like a great waster to toss spent cakes/casings without trying to get the extra 'good stuff' out. What is dihydrogen monoxide that you mentioned, and would it come out in the mix if I threw in a bunch of crumbled cakes into an alchohol solution to make an extraction of spent grow mediums?

there was a woman working in a court clerks office in california a few
years back that fell for this and had the city employees in a panic

looks like we are straying off topic...


My solution to vermiculite is to dry them and brush the excess off, it's pretty
much harmless in small amounts but there has been a scare about carcenogens like
asbestos in vermiculite over the last few years... unless you're eating a quart
or two each day its not something to worry about.

you guys tryin to trick me.. tsk tsk.

it just seems like such a waste to toss the psilocybin rich spent cakes. i think i'm going to try to case my next ones and see if i can get more out of them. if not, the extractions will work but i still don't see why the harmful stuff (if any) from the verm wouldn't transfer. win some lose some...

Small amounts will not hurt you but one should be carefull when cleaning mushies . Tell her to use a small paring knife to scrape it off in the future .

I pull the shrooms up, then cut the ass end off with a knife.

Why mix all that delicious vermy bits with disgusting mushrooms..

Not really.. I throw it away :smile:.

Look here: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...rue#Post3365851

Though really, with the amount of mushrooms my casings r putting out. I can't think why to bother with the used up substrate.
