The Truth
    #350677 - 06/28/01 12:00 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

It angers me when people put down the cubensis species. The truth is that out of the hundreds of hallucinogenic mushrooms species, cubensis is more potent than 95% of them. The more potent kinds of mushrooms you can only count on both hands, and even I prefer cubs over some of the "significantly more potent psilocybes" such as Liberty Caps and Psilocybe beaocytis, so I get really angry when someone says that cubensis is a "weak" mushroom. Look up all the species (over 400 identified ones I believe) and you'll find that cubensis is more potent than almost all them. After they have 1% psilocybin and more psilocin than any other species, even azurescens, at .60% while azurescens contain .35%, and psilocin is some 10 times more potent than psiloybin, altough most of it is extreted out of the body and is much less stable than psilocybin. 1% psilocybin is an extremely high concentration, and the "significantly more potent psilocybes" only contain about .5%-.6% more than that. So please dont be ignorant and put down psilocybe cubensis, it will only show how stupid you are.

if you want the truth, you should do your research first..
who said that cubs are weak? and in relation to what?
when compared with pan trop/cyan or azurescens they are weaker in most educated opinions..
where did you get your numbers?.. they are illogical.. and where did you get psilocin is 10x as potent.. its just dephosphorylated.. its more potent, but it also breaks down faster... and its NOT 10x as potent..
do your research.. before you get angry..

yes it is 10 times more potent than psilocybin, and if you aren't read enough and didnt get my point, psilocybin is 90% transfered into psilocin, and studies show that psilocin is 10 times more active than psilocybin itself. While your trippin', you arent tripping on psilocybin, your tripping on psilocin. Also: of course pans/azurescens and about eight more species are more potent than cub's, but you missed my point. There are hundreds of identified mushrooms containing psilocybin, and cubs are one of the most active species. Even Dr. Hoffman said that. Here is a list of the more potent species:

1.Psilocybe Azurescens
2.Psilocybe Cyanscens
3.Psilocybe Beocystis
4.Psilocybe Semilanceata
5.Psilocybe Tampensis
6.Psilocybe Mexicana (altough you need about 30 fresh medium sized shrooms to trip at all)
7.Pan Cyan's
8.Pan Tropicalis
9.Pan Cambodias
10.Psilocybe Bohemica
and thats about it! (out of about 400 species containing hallucinogenic substances)

Cubensis is an extremely potent mushroom, and yes, I've heard people over and over again saying that either cubensis is a "mediocre" or "weak" mushroom, and they have no idea what they are talking about. So dont insult me if you dont read carefully what I said. Here is what you have mistaken:

Psilocin IS ten times more active than psilocybin (Taking in account that psilocybin is 90% transfered in the body into psilocin, and studies show that comparing the activity of both substances, that psilocin is ten times more active. So when you trip, if you think its the psilocybin that your tripping on, your wrong, and go back to the basics. If psilocybin was the substance you were tripping on, and psilocybin never transfered into psilocin, none of the "most Potent" would even have a noticable effect, and your trip would be ten times weaker.)

2. You missed that I said there are more potent species, but there are hundreds of species and cubs are more potent than 95%. Im not saying that cubs are more potent than azures or pan cyans, but that cubs are extremely potent and I always either hear or am told that cubs are "weak" or "mediocre" mushrooms. They are not. They are extremely potent compared to all the species identified.

So before you insult and laugh at me, read what I said carefully and dont be so ignorant as to not read and study about this stuff and turn around to someone who has been studying this for years, and mock them without any knowledge about this subject. Dont be stupid, because Im the one whos laughing.

Ive noticed that too, like people
alluding that the psi cubensis shroom isnt
a potent hallucinogen; I guess ill have
my own experience with it soon enough,
but i wasnt sure for a while the way
people talk about them sometimes
whether the 'cubes' could make you
really *~~TRIP~~* or not.

?Psilocybin is among the least toxic of psychoactive substances. Schultes and Hofmann, testing psilocybin in mice, found it to be 2.5 times less toxic than mescaline, while having about 50 times the potency. Psilocin is stronger than psilocybin by about 1.4 times, the same ratio as their molecular weights.?

Sure..

psilocin is 10 times more active than psilocybin itself.

Im no chemistry wiz so im not exactly clear on
what is meant by 'more active', but he didnt say stronger,
im just pointing out the distinction.. maybe that 'cin is
more compatable to our systems than 'cybin, hence
a more thorough (active) interaction between body
and chemical? i dunno..=>b

If memory serves my rusty old brain, Psilocin IS 1.4 times stronger than Psilocybin, just like Anno said. I also recall that it's properties are destroyed in the drying process, so it is only present in fresh shrooms.

This part too.

Psilocin IS ten times more active than psilocybin (Taking in account
that psilocybin is 90% transfered in the body into psilocin, and
studies show that comparing the activity of both substances, that
psilocin is ten times more active.

The main purpose of my thread was to show that cubensis is much more potent than what people claim it to be. Facts are facts, cubensis is a very potent mushroom. I didnt mean it to become a thing about the differences between psilocybin and psilocin potencies, but if you want the studies that I found, fine I will very shortly.

Psilocybin and its dephosphorylated relative psilocin are the active
substances in mushrooms such as Psilocybe cubensis, Panaeolus
subbalteatus, and Gymnopilus spectabilis. Most of these mushrooms
contain primarily psilocybin and only traces of psilocin, but the body
converts most of the psilocybin ingested to psilocin, which is about ten
times as psychoeffective. (namyco.org)

Albert Hoffman, LSD, my problem child:

Both psilocybin and psilocin -- a dephosphorylated version which is
some ten times as potent -- are found naturally in mushrooms, though
their ecological purpose is unknown. In the human body, they affect the
serotonergic systems in the brain, and show some cross-tolerance with
substances such as LSD.
? ? Onset of symptoms usually occurs within an hour of ingestion, and
effects typically last up to four to six hours. Effects are primarily
psychological and perceptual, including heightened color perception,
emotional effects such as religious ecstasy or anxiety, and sometimes
hallucinations or delusions.

There. Happy?

> which is about ten times as psychoeffective.
OK, let?s asume this is true.
What does this mean for the effective psychoactivity of psilocybin?
Nearly all psilocybin is converted to psilocin in the body and thus the psychoactivity would be the same the same(once in the body), except that the unused phosphate group that psilocybin has, splits off and thus makes it 71,5% as psycoactive per weight than psilocin.
If you take into account that only 90% of psilocybin are converted, then it is 64,3% as psycoactive per weight than psilocin.
So, psilocybin is weaker(never said something contrary), but to say that Quote:"psilocin is some 10 times more active than psilocybin" is a stupidity and a lie.

no it is not a lie. None of the traces of psilocin naturally occuring in mushrooms has any effect, becuase it is excreted out of the body and is extremely unstable. However, the irony is that almost none of the psilocybin naturally occuring in mushrooms has any effect, because it turns INTO psilocin very rapidly and effeciently. The intoxication one recieves is not due to psilocybin, yet it is the reason that intoxication occurrs. None of the psilocin in mushrooms lasts in the body for long, because, like I said, it is extremely unstable. However, psilocybin is transferred into psilocin, causing the intoxication. Without psilocybin, intoxication would not occurr. But to say that it is a stupidity and a lie, is untrue, because psilocin IS ten times more potent than psilocybin. The remaining psilocybin that hasnt been exctreted has been shown to be ten times less psychoactive. If you think my statement that psilocin is ten times more psychoactive is about the psilocin naturally found in mushrooms, you are wrong. The psilocin in mushrooms is virtually meaningless because, once again, it is extremely unstable. What I meant by psilocin's ten times psychoactivity, is when psilocybin is transfered into the body, and once it is, the psilocin is already in the bloodstream, and is relatively safe there. That is why intoxication lasts four-six hours (depending on dosage obviously), and not being oxidated away by bodily "protectants" and having no intoxication at all. Psilocybin's mission is to turn into psilocin, and that is psilocybins only duty, since is ten times weaker than psilocin, and much more stable than psilocin. That is all Im saying. So please dont insult my intelligence.

If you want to argue with scientist master Albert Hoffman, one who has studied this longer than three of my lifetimes, (20 now) I wouldnt reccomend it, but if you think you know more than him, well, go try and make a drug ten times more potent than LSD and win a noble prize, but until then, do be so stupid as to argue someone of that stature.

By the way this thread is going way off topic to the original thought, please bring it back to the original arguement about psilocybe cubensis, because this is getting rather tiresome and childish.

Cubies have always treated me fine!

One thing to keep in mind is that some of these published measurements of relative potencies were made on wild fruits. . .the potency difference between wild cubies and cultivated ones can be extreme.
