I ve thought about this many times,but i think oxygen breaks Psylocybin down much to qwickly for this to be feasible

In this very forum there are dozens of threads on this topic, even in the last month. Browse around a bit.

yeah, endless talk of this. and the oxygen wont break down the psilocybin. it will however break down psilocin, so you would have to eliminate the oxygen. not too much of a problem in a lab but significantly harder at home. if you do it in a lab, please document and if possible include pics!

maybe under nitrogen gas, well.... my supplies are limited so....maybe i could suspend the powder in something to keep it from oxidizing.

I'd say that the best method would be a soak in warm anhydrous methanol bath for a few days, ideally on a magnetic stirrer. Filter this through a Buchner and evaporate the methanol. The fungal mass would then be placed in 70% IPA for a week to extract whatever psilocin would still be left, undecomposed, in the cellular structure of the fungus. Filter, discard mushrooms, evap IPA and vacuum dry to crystals. Mix both with pure acetone and place in the fridge overnight, then in the freezer for a day or two. Save some of these crystals for future "seedings" of crystals.

this may or may not work, just the best that I can think of. i'm fairly sure that psilocybin/psilocin crystallize in acetone at cold temps
