Strychnine in psychedelic mushrooms ?????
    #3865532 - 03/04/05 12:42 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Strychnine in psychedelic mushrooms? I have been reading about strychnine and its deadly effects. A month ago my friend ate an 1/8 of shrooms he bought that were said to be legit. I didn't know who he bought them from but they looked ok. The effects he felt sounded like a normal trip, but 5 hours in to the trip his heart stopped. His parents found him in time to take him to the hospital. After cleaning out his system with tubes and i.v's and shit they only found one chemical in his system (strychnine).
So now I'm freaked out to take again shrooms and was wondering how to avoid shrooms with strychnine. I'm not sure what the dealer used to grow, or if they were picked. Post your thoughts and knowledge.

I'm skeptical. How would strychnine get in shrooms?

How to avoid shrooms with strychnine? Buy from a dealer you know personally and trust with you life, or grow your own.

WTF. There is not strychnine in shrooms. Stupid ass rumor. If what you say is true, which i highly doubt, the dude must have eaten rat poison when he was trippin

That sounds like a myth to me.....I don't why anyone would lace any drug with strichnine. The only use of strichnine i've ever heard of is this Christian church somewhere down south drinks strichnine and lets poisoness snakes bit them...they it induces a religious experience.  :shrug:  :lol: Whatever floats your boat I guess....

Strychnine is not found naturely in mushrooms.
The effects of strychnine are usually noticable within 15-60 minutes.
Strychnine also shouldn't cause the heart to stop. It can cause repsiratory failure, but the heart ain't your respiratory system.

Relax. You won't be poisoned by strychnine from mushrooms. Eat, enjoy.

What happened to your friend is a mystery to me, but none of it adds upto strychnine poisoning.

Strychnine Nervosa is a plant, and is strychnine is not in mushrooms. And they wyould have found trytamines and others int he stomach contents, including tryptophan and urea.

\There would not have been just one chemical in the stomach.

According to shroomery there is no strychnine in mushrooms. Oddly it's a true ,story about my friend, but i don't know how he got that in his system, but the main chemical was strychnine. His heart did stop because technically he died, flat lined before the hospital and when he was there. Is there any contamination while growing shrooms that could lead to strychnine in the batch. Or could it have been some shitty acid laced in it?

no, strychnine comes (to the best of my knowledge) only from plants, and very few of those at that. There are no contams that would create strychnine.

If he had strychnine related problems 5 hours into the trip we can safely eliminate the mushrooms as the source of the strychnine (for reasons, read my previous post).

No one is going to lace mushrooms with acid in this drought.

There is no strichnine in acid either.

He is probably referencing something that I've read before. Some sources claim that street drugs are occasionally laced with strychnine. This is most likely a rumor based on misinformation, as I can imagine no practical reason for a dealer lacing his acid with strychnine. Killing off your customers is a terrible way to increase profits....

When I was a youngster, back in the early 70`s I got some peyote buttons that had a white mold growing. We were told the mold needed to be scraped off before eating because it was strychnine. Another note, in the early days of lsd, we saw alot in tab form ie, purple haze, orange sunshine, and the rumour was that strychnine was sometimes used as a cut??. Made the trip sharper, more intense than blotter or lsd25. I am no chemist, so take this with some salt

Not only is it a myth, but you have the myth wrong... the myth is that they use strychnine to make LSD stick to the paper. In no way is this true. Strychnine is not involved with or the product of the synthesis, or the laying of LSD. It has absolutely nothing to do with mushrooms or peyote. Strychnine is only found in nature in one plant.

Strychnine also has nothing to do with the growing of mushrooms, either your friend is lying, the doc is lying, someone is being less than truthful here. People tend to make up all kinds of crazy stories about drugs.

the white fuzz in the middle is associated with flowers & seeds on the pincushion cactus, & the little tufts ar what L williamsii puts out instead of spines...

www.peyote.org
www.peyote.com

& strychnine & brucine are found in genus Strychnos...
(& they tend to be convulsants; usually your heart stops after a couple hours of bone-breaking siezures...)

"My back is killing me from the strychnine"  :shocked:

Eat some ergotamine tartrate for your head aches and you might get a very similar back ache.

Sounds far more likely that your friend ate poison while tripping and either forgot or forgot to mention that fact. That or the doctor is trying to spread misinformation.
