ALCOHOL EXTRACTION OF PSILOCYBIN * 7
    #5068121 - 12/16/05 02:17 AM (17 years, 1 month ago)

I came across this tek by Professor Fanaticus and thought this was great. I thought some of you in here might want to look this over :smile:

This technique describes how to extract psilocybin from magic mushrooms with pure 190 proof ethyl alcohol and make a magic mushroom liqueur of concentrated psilocybin to effect a powerful psychedelic dose as potent as desired. The entire process involves only the shrooms and alcohol. The alcohol is untainted with chemicals and poisons because it can be easily acquired from a liquor store (United States) either over the counter (in some states) or with a special permit (most states - see end of article section - "procuring 190 proof ethyl alcohol from a liquor store").

ALCOHOL EXTRACTION OF THE MAGIC CRYSTALS
by Professor Fanaticus

SUPPLY LIST

* Shrooms
* 190 proof ethyl alcohol (GOLDEN GRAIN - EVERCLEAR ect)
* Pyrex glass wide mouth slurry soaking vessel
* Stove top boiling water pot (slurry vessel sits inside) "double boiler"
* Funnel, and vacuum filtering set up or Dust-pollen masks
* Small desk fan
* Stirring tools - spatulas

Acquire quality psilocybe cubensis shrooms (harvested before or just as the veils open and cool dried with desiccant). The more shrooms used in the beginning, the more potent the concentration can be when finished. Use at least several grams of dried shroom material to make the process worthwhile and effective. The shrooms need to be thoroughly dry (rock hard) to allow pulverization. To pulverize the shrooms, put them into a small strong zip lock plastic bag (freezer bag), cover the bag with a magazine (for protection of the bag) and pound it with the rubber heel of a large shoe. Or, powder them in a small canister type coffee bean grinder.

In a heat resistant soaking vessel (Pyrex glass), combine the shroom powder with several times its volume with 190 proof Everclear (ethanol). This is the "slurry". Place the slurry steeping vessel in a pan of boiling water. Raise the slurry soaking vessel off the bottom of the hot water pan (pieces of rope on the bottom of the boiling pot work well) for preventing serious sticking of the extracts and to prevent overboiling. Make sure the slurry vessel is stable and not tipsy. After the water boiling vessel begins boiling, the slurry will start to boil. Turn the water boiling pan heat down and let the shroom slurry lightly boil for about 10 minutes. Alcohol boils at a lower temperature than water. While the alcohol slurry boils, the water pan will not be boiling - only hot and steaming. Watch the temperatures closely. Things can get totally out of hand and ruined very quickly without close attention paid. Stir the hot boiling slurry mixture constantly. DO NOT LEAVE IT UNOBSERVED - PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR MOST VALUABLE SLURRY.

After 10 minutes of boiling and stirring, pour the hot slurry immediately into a buchner filter with a flask. See below for the right kind of filtering aparatus. Use this kind of a set up if you want to do this right, or else you might very well waster you valuable shrooms. Use this set up and forget what anybody says about this - there are many retards that think they know and will give you crap info on this on the net. The Professors way is the best, after all, he is the legendary PF and you can't go wrong following PF's advice on anything about magic shrooms.

Collect and save the filtrate liquids. Heat the slurry (the mush in the filter paper) one or two more times with the 190 proof as before, filter, and accumulate the liquids of the extraction's. The photos at the top are of extraction's done twice.

If there is no vacuum filtering device at hand, inexpensive dust-pollen masks make good filters for the slurry. These are available at hardware, drug and paint stores. They are usually white or tan colored, fit over the nose and mouth and are held on to the face by a rubber band attached to the filter. Fashion the filter over the mouth of a drinking glass. Squeeze the filter and slurry to extract the alcohol. There are many details to deal with, but doing it once reveals them all. Experience is the best teacher. Store the extracted alcohol in a fresh bottle.

EVAPORATION AND CONCENTRATION

Combine the filtered alcohol extracts into the Pyrex steeping vessel. Place a small electric fan near the vessel and point the air flow directly down into the vessel until the surface of the alcohol ripples. This will speed the evaporation and concentration. The process will take several hours. The more alcohol extract - the longer the evaporation time. As the alcohol evaporates and the level recedes down into the glass, wash the residue that adheres to the inside of the glass back into the solution. Any fumes that are generated will be harmless because the alcohol is a non poisonous drinkable spirit. Keep flames away from the solution - pure alcohol is very flammable.

One can also use heat to evaporate and concentrate the liqueur. Use a double boiler type of set up to heat and evaporate off the alcohol to concentrate the liqueur (as in the initial slurry prep). At this point, with hot concentrated liqueur (no crystal precipitate) it is best to go immediately to the storage tek (see Dosage and Storage at the end).

The concentrated shroom liqueur will have a pungent mushroomy aroma (like fungi perfume). Also, a white crystalline kind of precipitate will form in the alcohol liqueur (see above photo) as it cools. Store it in small screw cap bottles or vials in the freezer. Alcohol doesn't freeze solid and will remain liquid.

IMPORTANT GUIDELINES

1. Use warm-hot temps when boiling the initial slurry (shroom-alcohol). Use a double boiler for the slurry vessel. Avoid direct heat to the bottoms of the slurry soaking vessels. The extract has a tendency to bake on and stick very easily.

2. A good filter is a must. Lab quality filter paper helps for a cleaner extract (less shroom stuff).

3. When filtering the slurry, do it while it is hot (immediately after boiling).

4. When heated in the initial slurry, the psilocybin alkaloid extracts are free base molecules. In the final liqueur on cool down, the free base molecules will coalesce and form crystals. It takes a day or two for the process to be complete. The less the final amount of liquid is, the easier it is for the free base psilocybin molecules to meet each other and coalesce into the whitish crystalline substance.

5. The crystalline extract can be completely dried by placing the liqueur container in front of a small fan to get most of the liquid out. To complete the drying, desiccant is recommended. Place the small vessel of liqueur into a larger jar with quality desiccant. It takes several days to complete drying. The final crystalline substance can be weighed, worked with and experimented with. It is like big pieces of salt.

6. TEK personalization through experience is what happens to anyone trying this. Extracting plant material is an ancient art, and the ways are myriad.

DOSAGE and STORAGE

On cooling and with time, the free base psilocybin molecules coalesce in the liqueur and precipitate into a whitish crystalline extract which falls to the bottom of the storage vessel. The freebase Psilocybin molecules come together fast in the cool alcohol.

Storage and dosage prep is the same. If the liqueur has already precipitated the crystals, heat the final concentrated liqueur (for example - 20 grams of dried shrooms can be extracted to 50-100 milliliters alcohol) in its storage vessel in a pot of hot water. Boil the liqueur and stir and scrape deposits from the glass as the liqueur boils lightly. Alcohol boils at a lower temperature than water. Keep the storage vessel off the bottom of the boiling water pot. Direct heat is very bad for the liqueur, making it stick. As the liqueur boils, the crystals and extract will remelt with time. The large particles of the crystals can be crushed with a long needle probe to hurry up the process. When the crystals are dissolved, administer the magic liqueur while it is HOT. Using a syringe enables uniformity and accuracy of the dosages. Keep the liqueur stirred up to keep it uniform. The hot liqueur quickly becomes cloudy (precipitate) on slight cooling. A hot temperature of the liqueur with remelted crystals is important for accurate dosage administration.

While it is hot, dispense equal portions of the liqueur (10cc-20cc) into small storage jars with watertight caps. Each small jar is allowed to cool, the cap is put on and the jar is placed into the freezer for storage. Each jar is equivalent to an exact fraction of the original dry shroom weight so that dosage can be accurately controlled and determined.

When it is time to trip, the desired liqueur jars (with potency ratings) are removed from the freezer, allowed to warm to room temps, the lids taken off, a small fan is set up blowing air across the jars mouths and the liqueur is evaporated off to a manageable "hit" (variable alcohol). The small jars then become administration vessels where the entire contents (alcohol-water-crystalline extract) can easily be completely consumed.

PROCURING 190 PROOF ETHYL ALCOHOL ("Everclear" - "Golden Grain" et) FROM A LIQUOR STORE

First, call a well stocked liquor store and ask if they have 190 proof ethyl alcohol. Full service liquor stores supply hospitals and laboratories with 190 - 200 proof ethyl alcohol. If a permit is needed, call the state liquor board (usually in the State Capital) and ask for an application to get an ethyl alcohol permit. The fee is 5 or 10 dollars. On the application will be a question asking what the use of the alcohol will be. Write what they more or less want to hear. State that the use of the alcohol will be for "non-toxic surface sterilizing plus herb extraction - preservation - tincture - and perfume making" (or something to that effect).

A GOOD PRO QUALITY SHROOM EXTRACTING FILTERING SET UP (inexpensive)

Dig these great low prices on professional quality glass labware. Once you get these things, they will last you a life time and are the only real great way to filter mushroom extractions in that they do way better than coffee filters and get all of the nasty shroom stuff and let the good magic constituents through without the stomach upset ordeal. I have ordered from this company, and they are great. They will work with you also. They seem to be a small company.

Reminds me of this Ask-Shulgin post:

http://www.cognitiveliberty.org/shulgin/adsarchive/extraction.htm
Quote:

Dear Dr. Shulgin:

A friend of mine performed a Soxhlet extraction of 12 grams of powdered Psilocybe cubensis, using 95% ethanol. When the 60 mL of extract cooled to room temperature, many small transparent, colorless crystals had formed on the bottom of the container and did not redissolve on agitation. Do you know what these crystals are? -- Journeyman

Dear Journeyman:

There is a fascinating report in the literature that gives a quantitative measurement of the efficiency of extraction of both psilocybin and psilocin from the mushroom Psilocybe bohemica. The citation to the article is Kysilka, R. and Wurst, M., Planta Med. Vol. 56 pp. 327-328 (1990). These Czechoslovakian scientists studied the efficiency of both methanol and ethanol as solvents, each containing varying amounts of water. The results were, to me, both unexpected and most provocative.

The isolation of psilocybin seemed to be quite reasonable. This alkaloid is reasonably soluble in boiling water from which it can be nicely crystallized. It is less soluble in boiling methanol, and almost insoluble in boiling ethanol. And the extraction efficiency is optimum with methanol and almost as good with ethanol. With both, the less water present, the better. The compound is, after all, a perfect example of a zwitterion, the internal salt of a phosphoric acid and an amine base.

But the numbers with psilocin are strange. With aqueous ethanol, the optimum extraction was with a 70% ethanol concentration, and the extraction efficiency dropped almost to zero when there was no water present. But methanol was extremely inefficient regardless of the amount of water present in it. These researchers were apparently surprised by these findings, as they explored further and uncovered other clues. Time is a factor. Psilocin is extracted at a much slower rate than is psilocybin because it is contained intracellularly in the plant, and thus slower to be gotten out. They conclude that many of the low psilocin assays of mushrooms are due to this difficulty of getting the alkaloid out of the plant and into the extracting solvent. Using this information they determined that the levels of psilocybin and psilocin are substantially the same in Psilocybe bohemica, in conflict with the published literature values where very small amounts of psilocin were observed.

Efficient extraction apparently requires patience.

As to the identity of the crystals that were drifting around in the cooled Soxhlet receiver, from their being insoluble in ethanol, and white, and transparent, I would guess that you are seeing pure psilocybin.

-- Dr. Shulgin




If you don't know what a soxhlet extractor is:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soxhlet_extractor



The shrooms sit inside the "thimble" in the middle of the apparatus. Ethanol is boiled in the bottom flask, and the vapors rise up into a reflux condenser, which cools the vapor and allows the (now distilled) ethanol to soak the shrooms. Once the thimble chamber is filled to a certain level, this ethanol saturated solvent is siphoned back into the bottom flask. This process continuously soaks the shrooms in pure, distilled ethanol and concentrates the extracts in the bottom flask. The result is a flask of ethanol that is super saturated with psilocybin, allowing pure crystals to form and precipitate out at room temperature. If you were to freeze this solution, even more crystals would precipitate out.

this ebay seller is offering a complete soxhlet extractor for $70
http://cgi.ebay.com/Soxhlet-Extractor-55-50-Joint-Large-Size-/390282295597?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5adea3392d

You would just need the equipment to stand the stuff up and you could probably use a pot of boiling water for the heat source.

It's like the trick to human problems is to be even more human. Not less human but as human as possible, only understanding human nature.

it depends on what you're trying to extract and what solvents you're trying to use.

THC, I believe, is a non-polar compound, which is why it is soluble in fats and not soluble in water. So theoretically you could use an appropriate non-polar solvent to do an extraction on cannabis, but I'm not sure what solvent would be best for that.

Using this kind of setup with shrooms and ethanol works well because psilocybin has a low solubility in ethanol, and not much else gets dissolved (high efficiency) . Thus with each pass of clean solvent only a little bit of psilocybin is actually extracted, but this is done over and over and over again and it's all concentrated in the bottom flask. The low solubility allows the crystals to precipitate easily at room temp once the solution has been saturated.

How potent can this be? Can you drop liquid unto sugar cubes?

This is in my freezer. I did the Everclear extract, and put it in the freezer till my bottles got here in the mail. I then come home from a week of work out of town, to see these crystal all through my tincture. I took a spoon in dug out a small pile to smoke but I haven't had the BALLS to smoke it!!! I heard it is stronger than DMT? I will do it this Sat. probably, hopefully!

  Has anyone tried smoking the crystal? Or dosing it in any way? By the way I used 3oz's Cubensis, and Everclear.

So does this mean you can use everclear to extract crystal psilocybin from mushrooms???
I'm a little confused. It sounds as if you guys are saying. You just do an alcohol extraction, leave it in the freezer, and then you have psilocin/cybin crystals?
Or did I skim through this information too quickly
