USing poison oak instead of oak for azure bed?
    #86202 - 06/08/00 05:16 PM (16 years, 6 months ago)

Well i have run out of wood chips for my azure beds and i was wondering if i9 could use poison oak for the bed instead. Its from teh same family isnt it? It should be a hard wood, well i know when i weed eating and trying to cut it down all it did was squirt juice on me and would break worth the damn. So heres what i did. I picked a shit load of it and boiled it for an hour, it sure does put off a sweet smell. I would sit iover the pot and inhale the vapors. I seem to be developing a cold now, congestion. But anyways, does anyone have any thought or ideas about using poison oak for a substrate.
Thanks,
Mycelium

Sometimes when the springtime gets to me and I'm feeling all spicy, I'll find a nice switch of poison oak and use the little leaves and berries to tickle my balls. My that's nice. You haven't lived life to the fullest until you have tried it.

Well poison oak.. hmmph.. hard call there, might work, make sure you have someone you don't care for too much to beta test them first =). Just my two cents, BTW- sometimes when I'm out in the desert in the middle of any time of the year I like picking a cactus branch and scratching my nutz with it, those thorns are right up there with acrylic nails.

My favorite plant won't grow up here in the PacNW, but I used to get hooked up right regular with it in Cali. Get a good case going, then take a really hot shower. Ecstasy. And that's the truth.

Toxicodendron (Rhus) diversilobum. It is a vine-like plant that grows all over California, and probably other states as well. It produces an oil that causes a nasty alergic reaction in most people that touch it. It gives one heck of a rash. In reality, I have only had one case of poison oak, I was about 10 years old at the time, and I had broken out so badly that I had to go to the hospital and get some type of shots which helped alot. Since then, I have been very careful to avoid the stuff.

It seems like everybody all over the world is having trouble finding the wood for their woodeaters. I am going to use Maple for my Psilocybe cyanescens. It seems that Toronto is lush with Maples. Maple is second on the list of woods recomended. A mature Maple can make thousands of seedlings every year. I have found that a 1/3" X 3' small branch will just snap when bending it 45 degrees. I snap them into 3" pieces. I just have to walk down the lane where there are a dozen 50 year old maples and can come back with armfulls of branches. Somebody wrote to me and told me that any wood will work except ceder. I think the key is volitile oils. By boiling the Poison Oak you will have gotten rid of some. Soaking could get rid of some. Ageing will get rid of some. I have decided to try different woods if I can find them once I get the Maple established. I have a privet hedge and I thought about using the clippings. I have some fruit trees and I will try the prunings. I say try a piece of the poison oak with the mycellium. I can see which wood my cyanescens likes. It is very slow moving onto the fir bark but it loves the Aspen litter (pet bedding) I'm still searching for new woods all the time. I saw some wood pellets at the Petsmart today used for pet bedding. They were made of pine but they claimed that the high heat used to form the pellets gets rid of the volatile oils. When wetted they would break down to sawdust and hold water like crazy. If you threw a few bales onto the woodpile they would fill in the holes between the larger chunks. It would be nice if I could use the pine mulch as it is so available. Maybe boiling it is not such a bad idea. I'm going to get some and try it. I'll boil a big chunk and put it in a jar with some mycellium on it and see if it likes the pine.

tsss, as I suspected from the title, poison oak isn't an oak at all, just one of those kerayzee Americanisms.
Like "hemlock" is a tree....

This is a mad old post, from several years ago.. it was a joke..or at least I seriously hoped so.
Poisen oak can cause _serious_ problems if ingested or heated and the fumes inhaled...

It is not that difficult to get good wood, it all depends on how much one is willing to spend.
Again, this original post either was or should have been a joke.
------
not to mention the original poster has not been around, or at least under this nick, for at least a year... and has not posted regularly for at least 2..
