Strain reviews
    #4199810 - 05/20/05 03:55 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

As a newbie to the site I hope I'm not overstepping the mark by saying this.
I've seen quite a few posts requesting which strain produces the most potent shrooms, greatest quantity, etc etc. I'd like to see thread where I can look to see what experience others have had with a particular strain e.g. difficulty of growing, yield, relative potency (compared to the dosage calculator on this site) and any other details deemed relevant. I realize that some info entirely subjective e.g. trip effects (if its more physical, mental or visual) but I'd like to see this as perhaps there are some trends with certain strains (yeah, I'm nosy). From reading this site there seems to be.
Although I'm probably not really qualified to provide an adequate review as I've only grown B+ and Cambodian I'll give an example here.

Strain: B+
Substrate: PF cakes
Surviving cakes: 11 out of 12 [to enable ppl to tell how contamination resistant the strain is]
Yield: Ave. of 61g fresh per cake
Difficulty in growing: easy
Trip: predominately physical
Time taken: 5 weeks & 3 days to first flush completed.
Colonization time: 9 days (Note: I used a little too much water).
Relative potency: 1:1.1 (first number being the calculator, the 1.1 being the B+)
Grow again? Possibly

I realize this could be unreliable as some ppl may lie but interesting none the less.

Sounds like an idea. I don't have as much info as you but I'll post what I've found.

Strain: Golden Teacher
Substrate: PF cakes
Surviving cakes: 12/12
Yield: First harvest didn't do remarkably well since it was my first shot at growing at all, new batch is colonizing now.
Difficulty growing: Found them very easy
Trip: Very few visuals, mostly physical and euphoric.
Time taken: ~4.5 weeks to first flush


I found it to be a very good strain for beginners, even the trip eases you into the mushroom experience. No melting faces or anything like that, just a nice euphoric high. Combined with weed it does produce visuals, but again not melting objects, I usually encounter fractals the most.

They Vary only slightly in Pysiloben,Pysilocin,Beaocrystin..

Plus you have to throw in other numerous factors that constantly change, things like, environmental conditions, Mutes, How well the chemical properties are created in every cake...

If two pf cakes (w/e strain in p.c's) both yielded 50grams (about 4.7dry)....They're chemical properties would be Slightly different in terms of amount...

Sounds like a great idea, but there's so many Different never ending factors - It's impossiable to say which is faster,which is more potent, which is better,which Grows the biggest...

Main factors you should worry about are things like - Environmental condtions like humidity and temp.,and Substrate is best in terms of potency...Mushies seem to create A bit more chemicals than say pf cakes....Plus more in mass because of nutrients (probably also why they're more potent)...

Just some FYI...If you're really that worried about potency then you should move up a level...Try some cyans, they'll Blow you're socks off :grin:

Hello everyone.  You all are speaking about potency of the mushrooms, and I assume you're talking about how the potency varies between each strain as if you took the same amount of each type.  To defeat the lack of potency of a type of mushrooms that you're eating, can't you just eat more mushies to get a stronger, more visual trip?  Just wondering.

“Oh, what a love it was, utterly free, unique, like nothing else on earth! Their thoughts were like other people's songs.

They loved each other, not driven by necessity, by the "blaze of passion" often falsely ascribed to love. They loved each other because everything around them willed it, the trees and the clouds and the sky over their heads and the earth under their feet. Perhaps their surrounding world, the strangers they met in the street, the wide expanses they saw on their walks, the rooms in which they lived or met, took more delight in their love than they themselves did.”

yeah more will get you higher always if you eat them all at once i would think


but what is being compared is most likely a 3.5 gram dose your 3.5 vrs. his ect...

from what i seen i belive i get silghtly higher if i eat 20 mushrooms of the same strain that =3.5 grams vrs 1 that = 3.5 grams becouse each multi spore mushroom should have differant dna and that should make each one silghtly differant thus you would have more a balanced amount of chemicals floating about

as far as strain to strain thats too hard to even judge with out some sort of chemical analysis the human that tested the shrooms has a million differant resons why he might have got higher than some one else eating shrooms from the same strain and who knows maby if some one else would have ate the same shrooms that you thought were more potant maby he might think they were weaker in potancy its all really just a guess like your level five might me my level one highs

See?
Yes, with my own three eyes.

Strain: Koh Samui Super Strain
Substrate: 5 pf cakes spawned to 5 lbs of pasteurized tenn stud (2 trays)
Surviving cakes: 100%
Yield: ~2.5 oz on first flush (both trays combined)
Difficulty in growing: First and only strain so far. Couldn't have been easier
Trip: We shall see tonight.
Time taken: around 2 months? 1.5-2 months from innoc to first flush harvest
Colonization time: pf jars and spawn run about 14 days each
Relative potency: cube
Grow again? most definitely

I think mine might have been extra fat because they pinned while I was gone on vacation and they didn't get any fresh air. Only 2 inches tall and averaged 20-30 grams wet per mushroom. I'm anxious to see what the next flush looks like.
