well, i've gotten into drying, powdering, then putting them into gel caps. It's very convenient that way.

a friend of mine told me a story about gel caps

he worked with a guy who refused to take any medicine in gel cap form. when asked why he explained that he used to work in the military sifting sewage and waste. soldiers are issused cold medicines and other medicines in gel cap form. he said they find thousands of them in the sewage. HUGE piles of gel caps that people had shit out.

apparently something like 60% of gel caps are actually digested. the rest pass right through you and you don't even know it. he said taking gel caps was a waste of medicine. i imagine putting shrooms in there would be a waste of good stuff too.

Put a gelcap in your mouth and let it sit for a minute. See if it doesn't dissolve fast. :smirk: I think your friend may be a little off on the gelcap thing. I prefer medicines in gelcap form because they seems to work much faster than regular pills. I believe that was the reason gelcaps were created.

From what I've found gel-caps are a superior method to delivery and absorption versus a tablet. But, in cases were the person has digetive problems, (cancer patients, elderly, etc..) sometimes they may pass a gel-cap without it being dissolved.

I believe somewhere on this site I saw something that mentioned that chewing and sucking on the shroom, for a long time, DOES NOT increase or expedite, the psycho-active effects.

Yet, from what I have gathered this is not the case with nutrients, vitamins etc..., "the digestive process begins in the mouth". The mouth is able to MORE effectively absorb and deliver to the bloodstream, than the stomach.

http://www.prostarnutrition.com/24943/articles/absorp.htm

"Delivery System

Rate of Absorption*(5)

Pill or tablet - 10%

Capsule - 20%

Gel Cap - 30%

Transdermal Patch - 45%

Sublingual Liquid - 50%

Intramuscular Injection - 90%

Intraoral or Sublingual Spray - 95%

Intravenous Injection - 100%"

Maybe with psilocin and psilobin this is not the case?? Maybe such chemical compounds are not able to be absorbed through the "mucosal membrane under the tongue and directly into the bloodstream", as nutrients are??

But IMO, and at the very least... the digestive fluids that are secreted in the mouth during the chewing stage, would aid in a faster and higher absorbtion rate when it reached the stomach.

That is my laymen's 2cents....

I myself... plan on grinding my dryed shrooms into powder and then placing them in gel-caps for storage and dosage purposes. But, when it comes time to take some I will be eating a light meal and then immediately opening my gel-caps, pouring them out in my mouth, and chewing/sucking on the powder for awhile before i swallow.

This is my first bulk casing. 3 1/2 1/2 pint BRF cakes crumbled into 5 to 1 ratio of h poo and straw (the straw just happened to be in the barn when I got the h poo). I cased with 50/50+ mix. The strain is PES Hawaiian. I screwed up because I don't have enough moisture in the bin so this guy grew out of the side where the casing was wet. I actually have quite a few of them like this. Here's a pic of one of the drying racks with my hand in there so you can see how big they are.




Well, as far as the gel caps are concerned I have found them to be just as effective but it takes longer to feel the effects. I powdered a batch once and mixed about 3 grams into a cup of sprite. It was nasty as hell (probably the nastiest thing I've tasted before) but it only took about 15 minutes and I was trippin balls! I took the same batch and put it into the gel caps. I ate 3 1/2 grams and waited 45 mins and didn't really feel much. I decided there was something wrong and wound up eating another 4 1/2 grams (yep, a total of 8 grams). It was defiantly a bad idea, when I was peaking I got a bit scared and had to chill out for a while. The moral to that story is #1 don't eat right before taking gel caps, #2 they take a while to hit, but they are just as potent as eating the shrooms, you just have to give it a little time.

WTG  :thumbup:  Congrat's.

Very nice. Brings back the memories. Keep working with Poo and there will come a time when you don't even think of those as big, but more average,lol. 100 gram wet will be your new benchmark for big or not,lol. Keep up the good work.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

dang that's some monsters in that pic bob.

like i said... psilocin and psilobin may not be able to be absorbed thru the mouth... i don't know. :shrug: 

i DO know that i saw many health oriented sites that mentioned the high effectiveness of oral sprays vs. pill.... for purposes ranging from medicines to general nutrients delivery. and they also mentioned not just the speed at which it is delivered into the bloodstream, but also the amount.

IOW they maintain that much smaller amounts of the nutrient/medicine are actually needed for the same result and/or effect vs. if they had swallowed it. thus making it cost effective for them to produce and sell.

i also know that another hallucinogen that has proven itself to be far more potent in an oral spray, than it's swalled counterpart. that would be SATIVEX vs. marinol. the dea developed the synthesized marijuana pill...marinol. the medicinal and euphoric effects that normally accompany the smoking of marijuana, were extremely stunted with their pill version.

now thanks to the Bayer corp and to some canadian labs we have "sativex", which is not synthetic but more of an extract type process. the effects of sativex, compared to marinol, are hands down superior both in speed and potency.

also, the eating before i trip is not something i have always done. when i first took shrooms i may have been known to gag at the taste a couple of times and sporadically to lose my appetite while trippin'. getting a light meal under my belt before i started trippin' is just my personal preference.

I got the scale from a friend of mine.  He wasn't using it so I borrowed it forever :smile: ... I checked in a head shop and it was $190.  I was impressed. 

I'll give you the dry weight tomorrow, they are still drying.
