Are these an active species?
    #929747 - 10/03/02 11:16 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I just picked these today.... i found several of them growing in cow dung. They're believed to be p.cubeniss but i need a second opinion by shroom experts like you guys.

They appear to be waterlogged & beatup Psilocybe Cubensis.

So is it safe to eat them?

one would hope that you would have the consideration for things that you intend to ingest to at least make sure they werent decayed or harboring bacterial pathogens that might make one sick.
but they sure do look like cubies to me. i would just be happy that i found a place to get some and then monitor the spot for fresh, clean specimens that i would then take care of....
just my opinion. and, it is rather hard to be sure of any id on mush matter so .... old.
peace

viscid has some good advise on this.

and about the shroom juice, don't even try it with those mushrooms..there are probably bugs in their gills..

try to get more, fresher specimens..

And be careful out there..

well, if you're sure thats what they are (just look at as many pics of wild cubies as you can, answer the questions basic to identifying any mushroom. just make sure it's not one of the deadly guys.
it looks perfect, just disgusting. maybe a tea would be okay. or a fruit smoothie, or sumthing. i would say its not safe to eat nasty shrooms.
you must take your time. try not to eat old nasty mushrooms. they're likely to make you sick, while your intoxicated this is a horrible idea, please just be careful. no one can tell you whether there is some unidentifiable pathogen on your old mushies.
go get some more, do it carefully, dont put shit into the bag your gonna eat from. the lesser quality specimens i usually try to dry quickly with a fan and a very low heat....the key is quick. dont put em in plastic.
get some more pics of cleaner guys too, for our viewing pleasure.
peace

Oh, and a few more questions.how many of these should i dose with starting off? Is the prime time for freshness 24 hours after it rains ? And is it ok to rinse these off with water before i eat them, as i heard it rinses away the active ingredient?


thnx a million

Hello again,
And again viscid has excellent advise.

In answer to some of your questions;
-A good starting dose would be 1 or 2 mushrooms
-Prime picking time is 24 hours after a good rain, "freshness" however can degrade if the mushrooms are exposed to the rain itself, the can get waterlogged like in your photos.. so, it is better to not go picking when it is pouring rain outside.
-Cleaning the mushrooms up should be done with your hands not water.

Hope this helps,
'Looking forward to seeing your pics in the future,
GG

will i be able to see these at night times?
depends on yer moon, i guess.
i have hunted cubies at night with no prob.
if you use a light, people will see you for a mile.
be careful.
anything at night is obviously shady.
do you know what a plat book is?
if you go to the library, you can find out who owns that field, call them or go visit them, then take all the shadyness out of the situation.
if you have permission from the owner, whos gonna call the fuzz?
be professional. claim mycological research. use big words. more often than not, permission is granted.
if not, go get those fuckers at night.
oh, iw ouldmnt trust the friend. sounds like hes got ego issues. people die like that. dont let ego get in the way of your knowledge!
have fun!!!!!!!
