A few questions from a beginner...
    #4340833 - 06/27/05 12:47 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

i'm pretty new to the mushroom/acid world a have a few questions. about how much would you need and how much should you be paying for good shrooms? and are there any good ways to tell if the shrooms are high or low quality? I know that these are pretty simple questions but i'm just looking for some tips and a good time. and any feedback is welcomed, thanks guys.

well, i'm from canada, and the going price seems to be $110-120 for an ounce of shrooms, or about $20 for a half-quarter.

Its hard to get bad shrooms. though the odd time you get rediculously good shrooms. Just see if you get a bunch of stems and caps. If you can see blue stuff or white stuff on them, generally they seem to be better in my opinion.

stems and caps are good. the only thing you will get other than stems and caps is like little flakes and shit. they will taste terrible too.

its VERY easy to tell fresh from dry. dry will look like sticks, fresh will be a hell of a lot bigger and look like a full mushroom.
a half quarter of dried mushrooms will take up about the palm of your hand, fresh will be much bigger.

Dry mushrooms weigh 10% of those that are fresh (approximately). Fresh simply means that the mushrooms have been picked without being properly dried. Both are fine to consume, but on the black market you're much more likely to see dried mushrooms, and deal with their weights accordingly.

How much would you need? Half an eighth, or 1.75 grams, is a minimum for me, and you can really go as high as you want, but you should take it slow. Some people would want to consume 7 grams on their first time without being properly prepared for the psychedelic experience.

There's no real way to tell if mushrooms are high or low quality though, as mushrooms aren't as variable as marijuana in my experience. The potency of the mushrooms can be hurt by improper handling of them, such as exposing them to a lot of heat, but I don't think there's any way to look at them and say that's a good mushroom or that's a bad one.

In general, don't buy blue mushrooms. some people intentionally bruise them (or worse, freeze them) before drying to make them appear "potent" when in fact it does just the opposite. Unfortunatley like what the previous posts said it's much more difficult to know good mushies from pot. It's difficult to know how long they've been around and if they were properly dried, etc. If you're in to getting a lot I would suggest grow your own.

not ambient temp. heat as in when you dry them. and yes I know some morons who dry them in a microwave and wonder why mine are so much more potent, although i'm not the kind to take advantage of people, so I just tell them what they're doing wrong.

growing is the way to go, it's really easy & you can get a recyclable system going on with a startup cost of less than 100 bucks. you just need a cooler to incubate them in, a clean terrearium, access to a pressure cooker & some pickle jars. its fucking easy. & you only buy this shit once, you can make your own spores.

100 bucks assuming you have nothing to use as grow equipment lying around the house, I think most people do. First grow was done for under 50.
