Is There even such a thing. If there is is one more potent, or any difference between them at all. Someone asked me if i had open or closed caps thats why i am asking.

dosage/potency is all about weight. stems, closed or open caps, doesnt matter. its all the same.

and when theyre dry, its even less significant as dry open caps arent that big

supposedly once the mushrooms caps open, they stop psilocybin production and work on producing spores.

If that theory is true, then closed caps would be more potent by weight. I really doubt the potency difference would be noticable anyways though.

Dont matter, it comes down to weight.

Smaller mushrooms do have more psilocybin by weight. For example if you have one large psilocybe cubensis that weighs 3.5g and one eighth that was made up of smaller mushrooms the eighth with th smaller mushrooms will generally have more psilocybin by weight. So if you harvested your mushrooms before the veils opened your mushrooms will be more potent, but the overall weight of your crop will be lower. its sort of a trade off.
