Gymnopilus Spectabilis

Ok, so I managed my first psilocybin (sort of) mushroom find today. Problem is they're quite big and they taste like shit. Does anyone have any tips for ingesting gyms? Dried, fresh? Tea... what tactics? Only a few of them bruised, and it was a pretty greenish-blue. I've heard they're a different kind of trip, so I'd like to bioassay them myself... but can't find info on dosage and what not.

Hi Herbus, I have a post about this in Advanced Mushroom Cultivation. Those things are hard to ID to species. Not all are active and some are of unknown edibility. Can you post a description and or a photo?

Well, everything matches up accordingly for it being Spectabilis... the biggest cap is about 8 inches. I had it ID'd at the fungus fair by somebody with the title 'DR' on his name tag, so I hope that means he's a mycologist. Anyways I'm pretty confident in it being spectabilis. Furthermore I think I may have had a few luteofolius or similiar because some bruised green/blue.

G. spectabilis contains mostly yangonine and/or bisnoryangonine, compounds found in Kava Kava and a minute amount of psilocine.

The most potent of the gyms is Gyumnopilus purpuratus which is fromt he Austral Floral Zone of Australia and Argentina/Chile, and are all over East Germany. They came into Germany in woodchips mixed with pig manure int he early 1980s and spread around there.

There are thirteen species of Gymnopilus which are suspected as being psilocybian. SOme with actual chemical confirmation.

There are sdoubts about its presense in spectabilis by some of the experts.

I think they are the bitterest taste I ever put in my mouth and I once watch DR. Steven Pollock go to the emergency room after eateing some in Washington with Gary Lincoff.

have a shroomy day and be careful.

I usually teach people who are looking for psilocybian shrooms to avoid all white gilled or cinnamon color ochreaceos orange coloered gilled mushrooms and all spongy boletes and there is also a gilled bolet which bruises blue.

Be careful. I also teach people to avoid white gilled shrooms. Both the white and orange gilled shrooms have species which contain deadly toxins.

Have a shroomy day
