Possibly could have found info on this in the faq so sorry ahead of time if so.. im wondering after my first grow (done w/ basic pf tek) how i could have affected the potency during any of the procedure. the problem is that we grew thai pink buffaloes which from most of what i read are supposed to be a potent strain, which was not what we, or any others who sampled, found to be true. its not that they didnt work at all, but even on a 5 gram dose after not eating any for a while effects were minimal. so what im wondering is: was it me, or could i have possibly recieved a weak syringe; maybe the strain had been weakened? i have no idea, any advice is appriciated.

there's no way to really answer this question
it could be you, its certainly possible, and there is no way for us to tell.
5 grams (dry) certainly should be enough to get you good and ripped
or it could be your mushroom strain
try another strain and see what the results are
that's the only real way to get a clear answer to this question

It is a potent strain, IMHO..... at least fruits were grow out on bulk dung/straw cased substrate.

you didn't eat only 5g wet did you, if that is the case you only actually ate about a 0.4g dry, not nearly enough to feel the effects

It's quite possible that it was the growing technique that caused the diminished potency. On my first grow I ate 45 grams fresh and only hit a low level 2 trip. Not only did it have mild effects but it was also short lived. I have however used the spore prints from that first grow to make more syringes and now with more experience under my belt my shrooms seem to be quite a bit stronger in potency. I dunno if I didn't spray enough, or fan enough, or goofed the substrate mixture ratio somewhere along the way on the first grow or what I may have done. But somewhere between then and now I seem to be getting better at providing whatever it is that the mycelium needs in order to fruit mushrooms with a high psilocybin content. Just hang in there. It won't be long before you're growing some real mind benders. :smile:
