Quick Price Question
    #4608828 - 09/01/05 04:50 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Sorry if this has been posted before, i couldn't find it but does anyone know if I'm getting ripped off with the price of about $50 for an oz of wet and about $70 for 2 oz wet mushrooms? I'm not sure if its really just an oz or they just call it that because it looks like a very large bag. Thanks.

I would say buy them dry. 3.5 grams dry should be about $20-$30...thats the going rate in ohio anyways.

wet oz = about 2.8g dry... but lately, $50 for an eighth (3.5g) is becoming common. So yeah, you might have over paid, but fresh is also more potent than dry

um, heat, light, water and oxygen cause psilocin to break down.  Therefore fresh are more potent, do some research.

um, I don't pay for mushrooms...



I only hear from others what they have paid. Last weekend, I "supervised" a bachelorette party that paid $50 an eighth for an ounce. I'm not a drug dealer or I would have tried to help them find a better deal. Prices vary, from place to place, that doesn't mean anything to me

but if dried properly, they won't loose much, if any... i have had the same equivalence of both fresh and dry, with about the same trip...it's all depends on how they are preserved

sorry, but psilocin is a very fragile chemical... there is a significant difference between fresh and dried. it used to be $20-30 for an eighth here too, but that didn't lasst.

There is a difference between fresh and dried, but it definitely isn't significant. Psilocin does generally die when shrooms are dried...but almost none of the psilocybin does(which eventually turns into psilocin anyway).
It also depends on what you mean by more potent...clearly you can't compare weight, because in that situation, only 3 grams of gives you nearly the same experience as almost 10 times that. If you mean, per shroom, its still only slightly different. There are quite a number of chemicals that die when dried, but many affect the potency of the trip.

Anyway, I would never pay more than $30 US an 8th...Generally, I pay between $15-25...$30 only when i'm desperate.

sorry, you've wrong

check erowid or some pharacology references: psilocin deomposes when exposed to heat, oxygen and water. psilocin is sometimes thought to be the most powerful active chemical in shrooms (although not much research has been done). Therefore, adding heat, oxygen and water to a fresh mushroom deteriorates the psilocin content and thus will likely decrease the potency of the shrooms.

this effect combined with the loss of the baeocystin based chemicals is a definite indication that dried shrooms are chemically less potent than fresh. Try some research, you'll find what I'm talking about. Try some experimentation and really find what I'm talking about

Nashbar, when dried carefully they don't seem any different... trust me, I have a LOT of experience with this (probably tripped 50 times in the last year). Dry them properly and heat is out of the equation. Psilocin is actually fairly stable with moderate temperatures, and when stuck in the freezer, it doesn't decompose at all.
