What do dried Copelandia Cyanescens look like?
    #4418228 - 07/18/05 10:03 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I recently went to amsterdam and bought some mushrooms that the dealer said were Copelandia Cyanescens . The dried shrooms were one color....chocolate brown. I have seen pictures of these mushrooms fresh and they look white. Can anyone help me with the positive identification. I can always eat them and find out.

They were in a shop.  I meant a dealer sold them to me just like I was buying a car.  :smile:

They will vary very much depending on the conditions grown. They WILL be very small and very thin, toothpick like. The stems should be white to tan (I've really only seen white). Caps could vary but when I grow them, they are light colonized. They could have a darker brown cap. There may or may not be bluing on them. Here are some fresh and dry ones:

Awesome, thanks alot. The ones I got were a darker brown, although a similar size. I assume they are what they say they are since the other strains I bought were very good (Thai cubensis). I will upload a picture tomarrow.

I suspect you are correct if the size and shape are similar...I would trust those shops usually anyway..never been to one but I'd hope, just like when I walk into any other store, that I wouldnt get ripped off completly. Carful with them suckers, they are POTENT. anywhere from 2-3 or more times as potent as those Thai cubes you had (or any cubes). 1/2 gram is a good trip, 1 gram is pretty intense, to much for some people...1.5 grams is very hard to handle and to much for almost all people. .1 gram incriments to make a difference with these.

The stores in Amsterdam sell Copelandia Cyans as the strongest type of mushrooms. All of the dealers will claim that 10 grams fresh, or 1 gram dry will be stronger than 35 grams fresh of any other type, and from my experience, they're probably about right.

I've only seen the dry Copelandias once. The guy in the store shown them to me when I asked for Ecuadorians as an alternative, and they did look pretty brown. I didn't buy them or try them though. I've had fresh Cyans, which looked pretty dark due to the blueing, so I would imagine that they're okay.

i ate dried copes picked from the florida field (yes, they were legit...) and didn't trip AT ALL. i ate about .8g. they were some leftovers from "last week's huntin' trip." i don't know what went wrong. all the cubes in the area work just fine, but i didn't feel these copes.... i want to try again with at least 1g....

Fresh shrooms could be found at dozens of locations. There were two shops with dried in Amsterdam. The Thai cubes were 20 euros (24 dollars) for 5 grams. The copelandias were 17 euros a gram. Other strains were 20 euros for 3 grams. The street called Haarlemmerweg has many smartshops and headshops. I also bought another strain (I think they were tampanensis for 1.5 g for 17 euros. Not a bad place. Buying quantity helped lower these prices also. From what I am hearing it sounds like eating 3 grams at once of the Copelandias is not such a good idea!

Eating 3 grams of copes may be ok for some, but in general, unless you are more comfortable shrooming then me (I've done it well over a hundred times) thats double what I'd take...I might take up to 2 grams or something, but that shits crazy. 3 grams could feel upwards around 10 grams of cubensis.

Tampanensis are very good too, is it the mushrooms or stones? Sounds like mushrooms, they are SLIGHTLY less potent then the copes..1.5 grams was definatly less hard to deal with.
