does size matter?
    #658111 - 06/01/02 09:45 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Just wondering if the size of a mushroom determines its psilocybin amount?

In that case, is it better to wait for mushrooms to grow to their full size before picking and eating?

Why wouldn't you want to pick them before they are ready to?

I think I read somewhere that mushrooms stop producing psilocybin about the time that the veil breaks away from the stem. That being the case....the best time to pick them is when the veil breaks away.

The Preists at the Temple have come to the conclusion (and results will vary from province to province) that a shroom pre-veil, is more potent than post- i.e, the shrooom stops making psyicibin after dropping its spores, so it is not going to get any 'stronger' just bigger. It stands to reason that no one is eating shrooms for their nutritional content, so if they are tiny and potent, go for it.
You can be around when they are pre-veil, make the time. It is worth it.
(again, this is all conjecture. no shrooms were harmed in the making of this post)
