If you use vegcaps, it will take a while to disolve in your stomache (1.5-2 hours), I think gelcaps are a little quicker. Either way, when it does disolve, it will hit you faster because it's powdered, but I don't think that means it's more potent. Some people have said that powderizing the stuff will make it oxidize quicker and thus you'll loose potency, but as long you caps them right after you grind them I don't think it's going to make a difference. If you grind them and let them sit around for days, that's another story.

Are the caps made from an extraction or just ground shrooms. Cause that would make a big difference. With an extraction one cap would do the trick but with ground shrooms it would take the same amount of weight as normal. I wonder how many caps 3 grams would fill? I prefer the extraction gels over any other form of consumption!

Reality is a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there!

Just eat them what's the big deal? Too much work to grind them and shove them into capsules, etc......Be a REAL MAN :laugh:

Gel caps can and do digest faster than veg caps.....and to answer your question concerning potency it depends on MANY factors......such as how long the powder has been sitting around(after about a year that shit is NO good!!!!), what manner it was prepared in and so on. A regular 00 cap holds about 1g maybe a little less pending on how much you jam it in there. IMO dont ruin the trip by grinding and capping.....just eat the shit like said above.

>A regular 00 cap holds about 1g

A regular 00 cap holds .5 grams, of POWDER jammed in a professional pill stuffer, with tamp pressed HARD. I've poped pill caps before getting .6 or .7 in, theres no way you could fit 1 gram.

I've also kept capsules for over 2 years, stored with a desicant sealed in a glass jar, and mushrooms with them...both stayed potent.

In enjoy making 1.5 grams into tea, then popping 3 vege capsules swalling it down with the tea. Good hard come up, hard trip, and long lasting effects because of the dissolving. The hot tea helps dissolve them a bit though.. And I always feel like I start tripping more aobut 15 minutes after I drink water when I'm tripping on capsules.
