caps vs stems
    #912541 - 09/27/02 04:56 PM (18 years, 10 months ago)

I don't know much about grading shrooms.

So... I was wondering what part of the shroom will get you higher... the cap or the stem. Any input would be greatly appreciated thanks.

while there has been some documentation and studies (i don't have the links handy) on various potencies between species and i think also between the cap and the stem... there is no definite conclusion, and as such they are equally potent

in other words, you would never be able to tell the difference between 2 grams of stems and 2 grams of caps from the same strain/batch of shrooms aside from a psychosomatic effect (meaning it's all in your head, based on what you've heard and chose to believe).

i'm moving this to general questions, this is in no way a trip tip.

For most cubenis varieties the cap is only going to be about 10-30% of the mushroom weight. Seams mushies grown off rice like to have real small caps.

Anyways they are equally potent. I think stems might be more potent because the cap is the part that does reproduction and what not. I have no proof to back this up and im almost positive the flesh is close to equally potent.
