Koh Samui and Puerto Rican strain potency
    #4675343 - 09/17/05 10:45 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Hey, havent posted for a while, im finally growing some KS and PR's and i want to get a feel for their potency and such. Can anyone (whos eaten them) tell me if they are more visual/ body high, how much will get you to trip enjoyably. And how would these two strains compare to other strains you've tried! Thanks for the help!

I would know this one and like both strains and are much like all others ive tried. Puertoricans are more like what you find on the street, a great visual mushroom that takes little for visual effects.
Koh samui are like most eastern strains and have a very strong, possibly the strongest physical high imaginable. Also they are more visionary so the visuals are less acute, more all-encoumpassing. On the micro scale the visuals are less interesting, on the macro they are far above that of street-type mushrooms. Less visuals on the head of a pin, more attacking you from your peripheral vision.
Also, they are very similare in most ways like all cubies, like in the way of doseages. Id say the puertoricans are more most peoples style. The most seasoned trippers who look for more cognative effects might like the koh S.'s. There are definately some different chemical combos going on between the two.
It would be poinient to notice that their potency depends alot on growing conditions, yet they will always be different to the most seasoned observers.

Now when you say that it takes much less of the Puerto Ricans to produce solid visuals, how many "average" sized shrooms would you typically have to eat? And would mixing Puerto Ricans (solid visual shroom) and Koh Samui (deep body high shroom) be a really good combo?

That would be one hell of an awsome combo unlike two eastern strains which would for the most part be redundant. Both types of visuals are solid as a rock cause both the micro and macro cross paths frequently or at a constant. In my feeling, the macro visuals are the greatest indicator of how functional the mushroom is.
For any mushroom though, (wet is better and inherently more visionary,..... less decomposition of some valuable and less talked about chemicals like scolpalomine---not spelled right), and one average cake flush or four medium sized mushrooms are a good way to test the (wet) waters.
You sound like you really want to do it without eating more later, so eat a cake and a half or a bit less, like I said, wet is different and most people dont deal in wet mushrooms.
Basically, If one cake gives a robust hand full of a flush, take that or less. Ive known people who cant handle one huge cakes flush without getting totally uncomforitable. Even seasoned high dosers.

They are both extreemely potent cubs, and most people wouldnt notice the difference anyways. They are virtually the same cause they are both very potent. But what I said before isnt subjective, they are different in this way(i didnt say the KS is less visual, it just has less "normal" visuals, basically). Like how mexi-cubs are the golden mean between the two. Go figure they(mexi-types) are the most used by aboriginals of central and south america. I wont comment on whether I think this has to do with evolution. They involved it more in their cultures and religion than any one else though

As weird as it sounds, its not like mexis are all that potent.

Ive got to go, dont eat too much on my account. To bad noone else has anything to say. But I like your suggestion about taking both.
That will definately average out the differences I have talked about. The sclopalomine Is a key difference. I however, will always like koh samui types the best, for their visionary,(i cant breath) effects. Along with afew other things.
Enjoy the hell out of those good strains!!!!

Psilocybe cubensis contains no scopolamine.

There has been a dutch study (its on Erowid) investigating mushroom potency) I've cross-referenced it with other sources and a pattern emerges:

Cubies contain 3-12mg (~6mg) psilocybin per dried gram on average.
I've had multiple strains and potency was best predicted by whether they were grain-grown or compost-grown, compost Cubies generally being weaker.
