blue shrooms = neutralized alkaloids?
    #3641712 - 01/18/05 01:28 AM (12 years, 3 days ago)

Hi..someone over at another forum sayd that when a shroom has blue (as a result of bruising) this means that the alkaloids have been killed or neutralized and wont make you trip as hard as a shroom with no blueing at all...is this true???? IF so,im not even gonna touch my shrooms until theyre completly dry.

I grew out my first shrooms about 2 months ago...and I handled them alot which caused blueing on some shrooms. The trip seemed fine...

thanks.

There is some potency loss from the blueing. The psychoactive compounds in the mushrooms are being oxidized. The best thing to do is try to not handle the mushrooms too much before they are properly dried. You can still handle them because you will lose some potency but it won't completely ruin them. The way that they lose their potency most of the time is from improper drying. Just pick them then dry them right away and try not to use a heat source in the drying because it will act as a catalyst for the oxidation.

They are oxidized alkaloids. Rendered less potent. But possibility of being active.

Of about 100 shroom trips and growing many many shrooms of different kinds and such, I've found, IN GENERAL, the bluer the stronger. My strongest strains bruise the bluist and my weakest bruise less.

This is certainly not ALL the time at all, just a majority. I have had almost white shrooms that made me trip my balls off. I've never had a weak trip off really blue shrooms though.

Many people injest shrooms by blending freshies up with orange juice...turns COMPLETLY blue. Same with hot water when you make tea. Still trip your balls off everytime. I've eaten fresh ones between chocolate grahm crackers and when you bite into it it turns the darkest prettiest blue you ever did see from being smashed and bitten..one of the strongest trips I ever had..

Just my experiences, take them or leave them.
