Psilocybin and psilocin...
    #3694893 - 01/28/05 08:31 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I still don't get what the deal is with them. Can anyone tell me what the difference is, in terms of effect?

Just another thing, I was wondering if I should go for the old cubensis (.63% cybin .60% cin) or try azurenscens (1.78% cybin .38% cin)...

Eat right and exercise. Don't smoke, drink or take drugs. Get hit by a bus tomorrow.

psilocybin breaks down into psilocin in the body, from my understanding. so its ultimatly the same thing.

All the information you are asking for (and more, including the other active(s)) is available on THIS website as well as EROWID.

[edit]Though I'm sure someone more knowledgeable than I about it will come by before too long and explain for you - after they do, you should know which you're going for and at what freshness :wink:

The main difference is that psilocin breaks down a lot faster than psilocybin, so if you're planning on storing your shrooms go with strains containing more psilocybin...yeah, and psilocybin turns into psilocin in your body.

the chemicals do differ in their solubilities in various solvents - distilled water, acidic water, alcohols, organic solvents, etc...
so brewing a tea from them could give differing results (ummmm, i think that psilocin is less soluble in water than is psilocybin; not sure about acid solns such as white vinegar or dil. lemon juice...)

solubilities are prolly written up in "the literature" somewhere...
dr. shulgin states that the phosphorlyloxy group is enzymatically removed right quickly once in the body...
