In my experience, pan subbs are of comparable potency to cubes. On average, I get the impression that they are slightly less potent than cubes, but pretty variable. They usually don't bruise blue, but dont let that fool you. As for the trip, it's a bit different from a cube trip. Pan subbs get you to great places, ie. ego dissolution, without messing with your head too much. For that reason they are just as powerful, but easier to deal with. The visuals are also more intense in my experience and the come up and down are easier. When I take them, I make a tea. I've heard that eating pans can cause more stomach upset and I definitely don't want that during a trip. Best of luck.
I found them. The first place I found them was in a pile of straw and poop from cleaning out horse stables. The second place was from bales of straw that were semi-rotting. Look for horses, and look for construction sites or fields where there are bales of straw. But, keep in mind many other kinds of mushrooms grow from these sources as well.
