stems vs. caps
    #4733668 - 09/29/05 10:44 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Question...is there a higher concentration of the whats it called in the caps than there is in the stems? Or is it basically the same either way?

Basically the same If you weighed them out and experimented with them seperately. Stems are more filled with alkaloids as far as Ive read, but they dont necessarily have more of the desired alk's.
Ive read that stems are different than caps in total alkaloid content and they are of a different alkaloidal make-up. I dont like caps better and would rather a sack of stems that a sack of caps. Id stick by the idea that caps have more of the visual,and less body high although a mouth full of stems is more potent than a mouthfull of caps in both ways(im pretty shure im right about that). However I dont remember If im right about the potency as it pertains to weight, yet they are certainly different, not per batch, but more interestingly, per shroom.

Generally if youve got a scale you will get very similar results. The debate is best understood by chemists and very well experienced shroomers and takers of other hallucinogens. If someone says they are the same they are right in a broad scense, but they are indeed different. Not one study I have read suggests an equal distrubution of psylocin and psylocibin between the caps and stems.
Like I said though, per gram, they are very much the same unless you are really well aquainted with one variety(or a chemist), and then you could tell the difference. No person who has taken shrooms five times has had the time nor has any idea what makes them differ unless they are VERY sensative.

i was wondering, would it be better to have 3 grams of large mushrooms or 3 grams of small ones? i know it sounds silly but baby rattlesnakes are more venemous than momma and papa rattlesnakes... just some food for thought

3 smaller mushrooms weighing 3 grams would be more potent than 1 mushroom weighing 3 grams.

that is assuming they were from the same flush

Id definitely rather eat 3 grams of aborts or small shrooms then 3 grams of normal shrooms.

I think caps taste better though. :stoned: :mushroom2:

smaller shriooms seem to be more potent and less stringy and tough.

stemmer, don't be so quick to act like a pedant, which is exactly the behavior demonstrated above. The poster is asking a question and all you did was troll someone for using "lol" after making a couple of odd statements.

As for the stems and caps, nothing I've seen in researching erowid and wikipedia, along with this site, has shown sound reason to beleive they're not basically identical. And the testament of those posting above would seem to corroborate that.
