Help - Potency Problems with Ecuador Cubes
    #401741 - 09/23/01 05:02 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

I just tried my first home grown batch of Ecuadorian Cubensis grown via MMGG/PF Tek. I chewed down about 4 grams, then after still not feeling anything about an hour later, another 2 or 3 grams blended up in juice. I had only a very mild short level 1-2 trip. I've eaten 3 grams of a friend's PF strain before and tripped nicely, so I know I don't have sensitivity issues. So, somehow they must be producing lower than normal levels of alkaloids.

Has anyone had such an experience with Ecuadorians from The Hawk's Eye (syringes ordered about 2 months ago) being of low potency?
Are there other environmental factors I need to look at that could cause decreased alkaloid production?
Could it just be a weak strain? and if so, will the prints from them I took be just as weak or possibly not?

They were grown it an ultrasonic humidified terrarium at about 90% humidity and 74-78 F. All were fan dried for 1 day, then dessicant dried for another 2 days and eaten within a week.

Thanks.

Although this isnt a advanced cultivation question, I will give my two cents anyways. Your growing and drying procedure sound right for potent shrooms. The only thing I can think of is that you got a bad print. Most likely, the shrooms grown from prints taken from that mushroom will be just as weak, but maybe not.

Are you on any type of medication? SSRIs can have negative effects against shrooms.

Did you eat something before the mushrooms? The sugar level in the blood can change the sensitivity a lot!
Where the mushies cracker dry? If not, then they could have a considerable amount of water.
I don't think you got a bad batch of P. ecuador, it could although be, that you got the wrong strain.

I'm not taking any medication.
I ate some crackers during the day, and a bowl of oatmeal about 2 hours before consuming the shrooms as sort of a semi-fast.
They were pretty much cracker dry...about 17 1x3 inch specimens total I think.
Does increased or decreased blood sugar heighten the effect?
Thanks for the help everyone...hopefully I'll have better luck with my first Thai's next week.

Decreased sugar! If you don't eat for a looong time you start to hallucinate, although not have taken any psychotropic.
Actually THC potentiates the psychedelics, because it lowers the glucose level in the blood. Everyone who has smoken pot knows the "munchies" for sweet thinghs ;), as a consequence of a low sugar level...
