Different looking shrooms than normal
    #4196791 - 05/19/05 07:51 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Ive only done shrooms once, but the first time I got a little bag of dried cubies(caps and stems, still connected to each other), they looked almost exactly like the pictures of dried cubensis that Ive seen on erowid and such. But today I finally got my hands on some more shrooms for me and my friends to trip on tomorrow, but they are TOTALLY different looking, fairly obviously not cubensis.

They appear to be mostly only caps, with maybe a few of them having a little bit of stem sticking out, and also the caps are a dark red/brown/tannish color and they are flat and wide, and many of them kind of wavy like potato chips. They remind me of the color of dark hard woood, and they have the texture of something like dried apple chicks that one would get at a supermarket.

I looked up some pictures on the internet and they appear very similar to Psilocybe cyanescens, but Ive only been able to find fresh pictures of them so its very hard to compare. I would just like to know if anyone else has heard of people selling Psilocybe cyanescens on the street, because from what Ive read and heard cubensis are much more common.

If they are psilocybe cyanescens, would a typical dose of them be roughly equivalent to cubensis?? Im wondering because I took ~3.5 grams of the cubes and had a very strong but enjoyable trip for my first time, and I would really like to know if 3.5 grams of these should be about as potent, of course I know each batch of shrooms can vary in potency, but I would think someone would have a rough idea of the average potency of p cyans relative to cubensis.

REAL Simple, instead of you waiting for a reply, you could have read the very first thread in General Questions, which is the dosage calculator

Sorry, you are right about the dosage, but I still am not positive if they even cyans, as I have rarely ever heard of them being sold to people instead of cubes, and I was searching for a reply from anyone who has seen dried cyans or has a pic of em so I could compare it to my shrooms.

yes pictures would help a lot. also cyanescens caps when dried are a light tan color, they loose that carmel brown color.

I doubt they are cyanescens, but hey maybe you got lucky. I hope so for your sake.

make sure you find dried psilocybe cyanescnes.. because Im sure they will look ALOT different than dried copelandia cyanescnes and the pic may be labeled just cyans

It sounds like they could be amanitas.

Those could still very well be cubes. It sounds like the grower just let them go longer and waited for the caps to flatten out before he picked them. Is there at least some blue bruising where the stems were broken? You shouldn't eat them if you are unsure they are even psilocybin mushrooms.

the color of the gills is all important here. if they are p. cyans then the gills will be dark purplish-brown. Many bogus dealers sell inexperienced trippers shiatake (white gills).
