Easy Psilocybin extraction method
    #4247663 - 06/02/05 01:25 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I was once taught a way to extract Psilocybin into water as a way to make use of the quite old/gross shrooms that were too decayed to do anything else with (outdoor shrooms of course).

I'd like to share the method. It worked really well and seems to be a much simpler version of the alcohol extraction technique - no need to find ethanol, no evaporating - with the same benefits of no nausea, easy to consume etc. This was the VERY GENERAL recipe used. 

- 1/2 a 2 Litre ice cream container of the old shrooms
- about a Litre of water (or a little less if you want the juice more potent)
- 2 - 3 Table spoons of Tartaric Acid (found in the baking section of any supermarket - used in sherbert, completely safe)

Use a large knife to finely chop up all the shroom material (still wet, dried might not be nearly as effective) on a chopping board.

Add all shroom material and Tartaric acid to the water and pour this into a suitable large container with a lid. Shake well (actually, only stir it gently - never shake - see note at bottom). Store in the fridge and shake (stir gently) every few hours. Use the back of a spoon to gently squash the bits of mushrooms against the side of the container, to squeeze as much of the 'good stuff' out as possible.

After about 24-36 hours strain through some muslin cloth or a fine seive, keeping the juice, and squeeze out all the liquid from the shroom material. Mix the water with some cordial (make it stronger than normal as it will be sour tasting from the acid).

Thats it - about a shot of this induces a very nice mild level 2 trip with no nausea at all. Kept in a dark container in the fridge - the extract lasts without noticeable potency loss for at least a month.

Im sure you could use this with smaller amounts, eg. 10 medium cubies, 1 cup water, 2 teaspoons tartaric acid - enough for two people. Would anyone know the chemistry of this process? And would freezing it destroy the psilocybin?:thumbup:

(11/5/06) Edit: Since writing this I have realised the importance of NOT shaking the mixture.

Instead, wherever I have used the word 'shake', replace it with 'stir gently'.

Shaking seems to introduce air into the mixture as it is agitated, and seems to oxidise the 'good stuff' - and make it less potent.

The clearer your final product - the better. If your shroom juice is very blue, it means you agitated it too much.

If you want, test this theory by keeping a small amount of your juice in a seperate little bottle and shake the hell out of it. This juice will go a LOT darker blue than the rest of the juice.

Extra care should be taken when straining off the mushrooms - Gently run the juice down the side of the final container, as not to agitate the mixture too much. I found I lost a lot of the potency (caused the mixture to turn a lot more blue) at this point in the process.

G E N T L Y - is definitely the key to success with this method - this goes with any transportation as well.

why would it matter if they are dry or wet? the psilocybin content is the same.

Doesn't sound too shabby, I may give it a try if tartaric acid is as easy finding as you say. I've had shitty luck with the alcohol extraction method.

Try it and you wont go back - puts a whole different feeling on the trip, if your comfortable in your stomach you are also comfortable in your mindset - the feeling of 'coming up' without a gut ache is quite a  pleasant rush. Or you could just continue being the big strong man you are.

If they are wet it makes the extraction a lot easier - if they are dry I would grind them to a powder first, and then yes - Im sure it would be exactly the same.

Just a question on dosing. About how much shrooms in grams would produce level 3 trip for one person?

I would be careful with this, i got killer food poisonin when makin up mushroom juice this way some years back and consumin it out of the fridge bout 3-4weeks later, if u want to keep it more than a week or 2 then freeze it!! Then it will last months (not sure how long cos im too much of a shroom junkie to let it remain for any considerable time period).
I use push top containers (kids play lunch plastic drink containers with a push down lid) and fill up eat one equivelant to a dose and then u just take out one container when u wanna have a trip.

"Tartaric Acid "

I imagine this is the same stuff known to Americans as "cream of tartar"??

Can anyone confirm?

That looks unworkable as written, at least for someone who wants specific proceedures to follow. Check my response.

Old thread I know - but the season is kicking off in a really big way in Melb so I thought this would be worth reviving. All those old, ugly bastard shrooms you find on your journey can now be put to good use.

Tartaric Acid by the way - is an ingredient used in making sherbert.

tartaric acid is also available in most home brewing stores. I've never seen it in a grocery store.
