Psylocybin converts to Psylocin which exerts the characteristic psychedelic effects. Psilocin is the central psychoactive constituent in a lot of psilocybin-rich mushrooms.

The psilocybin will be pretty evenly distributed throughout the entire mushroom. Better to go by weight than anatomy.

The amount of psilocybin will vary ever so slightly throughout the mushroom however there is not one area it is concentrated in.

According to “Pscilocybin: the Mushroom Handbook” by L.G. Nicholas and Kerry Ogame, pscilocybin is pretty evenly distributed throughout the mushroom

Multiple growers have noticed no difference from online and irl sources

Caps VS Stems: Nothing consistent nor significant. We’re talking differences of a few hundreths of 1%.

Although both Bigwood and beug (1982) and Beug and Bigwood (1982, as well as Gartz both showed in comparitive analysis that the stems and caps usually had a fairly equal amount of psilocine/psilocybine, every single individual mushroom has a different amount of chemicals inthem, including they can halso have minute traces of baeocystine and norbaeocystine in them.

The stems and caps have very little difference in potency… so little that I doubt even the most experienced shroomer would notice.

In the first study conducted in Japan in 2003, the scientests extracted hallucinogenic alkaloids with methanol by HPLC with a UV detector. The psilocin/psilocybin contents in Psilocybe cubensis were in the range of 0.14-0.42%/0.37-1.30% in the whole mushroom (0.17-0.78%/0.44-1.35% in the cap and 0.09-0.30%/0.05-1.27% in the stem), respectively. The hallucinogenic alkaloids in Copelandia were 0.43-0.76%/0.08-0.22% in the whole mushroom (0.64-0.74%/0.02-0.22% in the cap and 0.31-0.78%/0.01-0.39% in the stem). They came to the conclusion that P. cubensis is psilocybin-rich, whereas Copelandia is psilocin-rich. Nothing about caps being more potent then stems.

In the second study conducted in 2001 by Jeremy Bigwood and Micheal Beug found out that the levels of psilocybin varied unpredictably from one flush to the next. The M.R. strain had 9.7mg/g compared to 4.2mg/g, the ecuadorian strain had 7.6mg/g vs 4.7mg/g and the lastly the amazon strain had an equal amount of psilocybin in the cap and stem.

The third study from 1995 showed that the caps had 1.3% of psilocybin and psilocin compared to the stems which had 1.1% of psilocybin and psilocin. Were talking a different of less than a percent.

And finally stated in Pscilocybin: The Mushroom Handbook by L.G Nicholas and Kerry Ogame, pscilocybin is pretty evenly distributed throughout the mushroom. I’ll have links to this wonderful book and to the studies in the description below.

I've been waiting for so long to see you come back man. Thank god and I hope you're doing well.

Tum Gur says:

Hi guys, what you think about my Mushroom growing Terrarium box. I harvesting around 50-60 psilocybe cubensis fom small pf tek cakes:)

Steven Miloski says:

LOVE the channel bro, keep it up!

Attero Dominatus says:

i just got 5g of shooms but the stems have a lot of blue in them, is that normal?

Greatest Ever says:

I think you said you have a vimeo. Can I get a link to somewhere to see the rest of your deleted videos?

Mystery MM says:

depends if you get a OZ and have the small stems and caps and do a 0.50 I find it makes you pretty awesome lol but also 1G is okay but 1G of a stem I start seeing drifting more.

Greatest Ever says:

I see you getting more subs every day, good job. Hope your vids stay up this time.

evilyoda says:

Use Maxwell's silver hammer to chop up those caps

pocho says:

Cubensis are golden teachers…

Frostbite Incorporated says:

Sutton Kelley says:

Great content! Glad to see you’re out of jail.

Nice one John mate. I used to pick Liberty caps mushrooms. Put them in a pan of boiling water. Then drink the water. Would like to see some Xanax videos mate. I just use them for stress and anxiety. Not to get Fckd on.
