Increasing potency?
    #4173490 - 05/14/05 04:29 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

My understanding is that potency is affected by substrate, grow conditions and time of harvest, as well as some other factors.

My question is if anyone has any idea how much potency will increase if I choose to harvest early? Say if I harvested at say 50 - 75% maturity? I would like to optimize my results as much as possible so that I don't lose much weight.

Any and all input is appreciated.

If you want higher potency and such, read up on Pan cyans. They make you go crazy :rotfl:

IMO what kind of substrate you use and what flush you are on are the primary factors of potency. Granted undryed fresh shrooms have been the most potent IME, later flushes on the same substrate that have been dryed in a manner that most would frown upon :read: on top of a computer monitor where ppl would say its too hot, have still kicked ass.

oh and some say that every mushroom have silghtly differant levles of chemicals in them so if it took 20 mushrooms to make 3.5 grams then theoreticly that should be just a little more potant than one mushroom that is 3.5 grams
