I was pondering, staring at cakes the other day. Would an everclear (pure grain alcohol) dunk extract psyilocybin from the cake? Kinda like every herb can be made into a tincture, I was wondering if that would work. I'd love any information you guys got... peace

my wookie freaky friend had some success on extracting the goodies out of mycelia... mostly cakes, and a few abhorts.
he has used anhydrous methanol but the stuff purity was fairly below the expected, thought it did work, he says.
but he tells you its more worth to effort on getting shrooms to fruit cause mycelia cakes aren't as strong as carpophores...
my wookie friend will post he's extractions experiences with carpophores as soon as done... that must be worthful.

Extraction and analysis of indole derivatives from fungal biomass. Journal of Basic Microbiology, 1994, 34(1):17-22. (UI: 94267730) Abstract: The occurrence and extraction of indole derivatives in six species from four genera of higher fungi were investigated. By using pure methanol for extraction of the mushrooms analysis revealed the highest concentrations of psilocybin and baeocystin. The psilocin content of the species was higher by using aqueous solutions of alcohols than with methanol alone but was an artificial phenomenon caused by enzymatic destruction of psilocybin. The extraction with dilute acetic acid yielded better results than with the water containing alcohols. The simple one-step procedure with methanol for the quantitative extraction is still the safest method to obtain the genuine alkaloids from fungal biomass.
