Boil heavily for 20 minutes, strain, add tea bag, let cool, drink.

Chopping them into little pieces with a knife before boiling/straining might be a good idea, too.

So heat does not adversely effect the potency?
Does it increase it?
All I found is now dried, what would be a good dose for tea?

i beilive that gyms have about a 3 to 1 potency ratio to cubes. and masons child does boiling really get the most out of it. i made tea about a week ago i had it goin at a lite boil/ heavy simmer for about 20 min and the effects were much less than if i had just eaten the mushies.

Heat will usually lower the activity a bit, but the come-up is faster and stronger, but the duration is slightly shorter. Just figured for Gyms it would be the easiest. Tea is usually way more visual for me also.

I haven't had time to really dig in to these puppies but a dose of less than one gram dried does have an effect.
Are the Gyms you enthusiasts speaking about wild or cultivated?
With P. semilanceata I have found a great variation in potency depending on where they are collected and with grasses they associate with. My collections have been made literally from coast to coast and at elevations from sea level to over 3000'. The Gyms I found were on well decayed white birch, I understand that they also occur on conifers.
Any thoughts on the ideal growth medium? I think I'll try to retrieve some of the log and start a culture to work up at home.
