Why do some mushrooms contain Psilocybin/Psilocin?
    #4327562 - 06/23/05 05:52 AM (16 years, 5 months ago)

Hi,

I have been troubled as to the reason why some mushrooms contain the afore mentioned chemicals...i mean why do the mushroom need them?  :confused:Are they used to ward off animals...Didn't really work when humans stumbled across them! Surely they can't be put on the earth for our enjoyment only :cool: .

I would really appreciate any answers ne 1 might have, technical or otherwise on the subject.

hmmmm interesting, heh never really even cared. IMO its just a chemical like any other, this chemical happens to react with our serionin recepters, I highly doubt that it is a their defense mechanism. Also, I might ad, to support my theory, that not every living species is effect the same by chemicals. For example, some berries that are part of certain birds main source of nuritment is toxic to humans. The chemical that makes humans eyes water in onions, poisons dogs.....anyway good question...and thats my two cents!

Try a search...

Truth is, no one really knows why, people have their theories, perhaps, but we might never know... just be thankful they do contain psilocin. Perhaps they contain the chemicals as a way to encourage the spread of their species, if they didn't have them they would just be useless LBMs (they don't taste very good, etc.).

Its mother earths way of helping mankind...

If enough of the mushrooms grow... and enough humans eat them...

Then we'll mend our ways and save the earth...

I like it anyway  :thumbup:

onions can kill dogs? damn, no wonder my dog wont eat onions. she wont eat mushrooms either, which leads me to believe that mushrooms are toxic to small dogs like her.

These mushrooms throw Profundity, Life's Questions and God into your face and, while you're distracted, make their escape in the woods :evil:

i remember reading somewhere that they are by-products of the fungus' metabolism. i don't have a source or anything, however.

the above post sounds reasonable, if you put aside any spiritual implications. it would make sense because you can grow psilocybes the are more or less potent depending on the type of substances they grow on and how much nutrients they have.
