The taste???
    #3610309 - 01/11/05 12:15 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I was wondering if different strains have different tastes. I also am curious if the growing substrate have any affect on the taste and if so is there possibly a way to use additives in the substraight to alter the flaver?

Some substrates have stronger tastes. I find that birdseed based substrates have a stronger taste than brf based substrates. I have also tried adding candy flavorings to substrates and while the shrooms will absorb the flavor, it is by no means a good thing. My best advice when it comes to dealing with the taste is to put them in a blender with some extra pulpy oj.

Tea and chocolate.

No matter what strain or how grown they taste like shit. Only in consumption can you change it.

Actually though SPECIES might differ. IMO Tamps had ZERO flavor in with the tea..whereas cubies do still make a tough drink if you have more then 2 grams in a cup. Smaller thinner species like that, Mexicana and pan cyans (possible p cyans and azures as well but they arent the tall skinny type as much as the other three so maybe not) may not taste so bad but are more difficult to grow. With other species you can also take much less to get the same trip (often at least half) so that also helps.

Nothing in the sub can change the flavor .
YUM YUM nothing beats the taste of a fesh picked mushies IMHO .
Some acquire the taste some just plain old like it  :smile:

You could make some shroom jello or chocolate covered shrooms.

Shroom jello is probably the only method I've never tried and I have been interested...has anyone else tried this? I was think VERY small jello shots (like the size of half a shot) with a gram or so in it..you should be able to slip the jello right down your throat..

Why not? You dont chew it at all...you swallow it once hardened...it would act more like a pill that disolves uickly. Gelcaps work but they take a little bit to kick in. Choclates excellent but you still have to chew and can feel the small bits. Tea is easiest...no need to drink all the solid matter but if you do it slides down pretty easy. Those are the best ways IMO.

You know after I posted that, I started thinking about it in the same manner you've just stated. Grind up, and mix it with jello....that might not be bad at all!
I just had visions of a shroom(whole) curled up in a bowl, coverd with jello....lol!

Now THAT would be gross :smile:

I'm still unsure of how much of the texture or taste you'll feel in jello but I could see it as being one of the best and quickest ways to injest.

I'm just thinking out loud here, but doesn't chewing and saliva facilitate better digestion? It seems to me that Jello shooting chunks of shrooms would just cause most of the chunks to be "passed" without being fully digested, hence wasting precious harvest.

Or, perhaps not...?

well thats why it would make sense to grind it up into a fine powder...so the work of the teeth and saliva is pretty much done already....

Couple scoops vanilla ice cream, 1/2 cup milk, double - triple shot dark rum, couple grams dry shrooms & blend WELL. Makes a smoothie that tickles & lasts.

Perhaps, but I read somewhere that the act of chewing stimulates the production of stomach acids and the digestive process, and that food is best digested when it has been pre-broken down by saliva.

Of course, I have no doubt that the difference isn't massive, but I suspect that even finely chopped isn't as benificial as good ole chewing...

But again, I'm just rambling out loud :smile:

The psilocybin and psilocin will be better absorbed through your mouth but chewing isn't needed. I don't chew my tea but trip BALLS off it QUICKLY every time. Its already dissolved in liquid and hits your mouth and its almost instant. They say to hold the shrooms in your mouth as long as possible for a quicker onset...but it wont affect the strength, just the onset speed...I'm ok with a slightly slower come up most of the time that swallowing would provide.

Yeah Gelcaps are no chew either...still definitely trip..just takes a while, especially with vegan caps and especially if you eat right before..
