Mature Mushroom potentcy?
    #4463840 - 07/28/05 11:20 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

When a flush of mushrooms gets overly mature and drops alot of spores in the fruiting chamber do they loose alot of their potency? Do you need to eat more to get the same effect of mushrooms that haven't broken their vail yet?

Generally, more mature mushrooms are slightly less potent, but you can't be sure without trying it. Your strain might be particularly powerful, you never know.

I thought i learned long ago that the spores don't make you trip at all. This is why spores are legal to buy and send (in most states)in the US. Psilocin and psilocybin, along with 2 other chemicals that slip my mind, are the main chemicals that make you trip. These will all decrease and fluctuate after picked depending on storage conditions. As for mushrooms still growing on cakes/casings once the max levels of these chemicals are meet in the fruit body they should stay about the same, as long as the mushrooms are still in reasonable condition...they cant be rotting away.

There are many things that can effect a mushrooms potency at different stages of the networks life. For example longer incubation times...A theory on potency

As i said before, simply dropping the non psychoactive spores will not decrease potency but prolonged neglect of the fruit body may. This is all based off of information I've read on the shroomery and experience/observation...i may be mistaken...

Is this a duplicate post? I could have sworn just reading this somewhere else.
