Mushrooms I would go for 0.2-0.4g fully dried and ideally powdered. Truffels I would start with 0.8-1g wet.

I am working on an article about this, perhaps we could collaborate!

Comment on Taking Pure Psilocybin is Different from Eating Magic Mushrooms by Gordo https://psilocybintechnology.com/taking-pure-psilocybin-different-eating-magic-mushrooms/#comment-2633 Sat, 05 Sep 2020 18:34:23 +0000 http://psilocybintechnology.com/?p=44#comment-2633 “ Given the importance of preserving the full spectrum of active ingredients present in magic mushrooms” Why is this a given? What is the evidence? We know from modern research that pure psilocybin is excellent for inducing profound complete mystical experiences, for treating certain disorders like depression, addiction, PTSD, etc. I haven’t seen any evidence that whole mushrooms or even purified formulations are superior, so if such evidence exists I’d love to look at it. Of the 3 main active alkaloids in Magic mushrooms: psilocybin, psilocin, and baeocystin, psilocybin just becomes psilocin after ingestion, so not really any different, and baeocystin only exists in very small quantities in most mushrooms and seems to also be somewhat similar in effect to psilocybin based on limited reports. People who have used pure synthetic psilocybin mostly seem to report that the effects are the same compared to an equivalent mushroom dose, and when they report some perceived difference it could just be the result of set, setting, and especially dosage (you often have no idea what dose you will even be getting when consuming actual mushrooms).

Comment on Formulating New “Magic Mushroom” Compositions by Gordo https://psilocybintechnology.com/formulating-new-magic-mushroom-compositions/#comment-2632 Sat, 05 Sep 2020 13:08:12 +0000 http://psilocybintechnology.com/?p=254#comment-2632 In reply to Staff Scientist.

Regarding real psilocybin extraction, I’ve done lots of research on this and have come to the conclusion that it’s just not worth it (which is why you don’t find much about it in online forums). You’d have to use hazardous chemicals including methanol and chloroform, and you end up with an unstable product that quickly breaks down so you’d have to use it right after the extraction. The rhodium archives describe “Acetic acid extraction, then basified and extracted with ether, then recrystallized with chloroform/heptane, filtered under a stream of nitrogen gas. Stored in Methanol at low temp.” – yea, no. There are also some nonsense / debunked TEKs out there like “Crystals of the Gods” complete with pictures and even testimonials from Alexander Shulgin but these only extract mushroom proteins which are not psychoactive by themselves (these are not psilocybin crystals), all they really produce is a tincture. Yes, it is psychoactive, but if a person wanted a tincture, it can easily be done with just hot water (strained mushroom tea) or simple alcohol extraction, Lemon TEK is another alternative.

Comment on MagicMed – The First Psychedelic Patent Troll? by Gordo https://psilocybintechnology.com/magicmed-the-first-psychedelic-patent-troll/#comment-2631 Sat, 05 Sep 2020 12:20:56 +0000 https://psilocybintechnology.com/?p=5280#comment-2631 Well if they are just “developing new psychedelic compounds” as you say, I think that’s fantastic, this is what Alexander Shulgin did. This wouldn’t limit anyone’s ability to work with already known compounds. It will be interesting to see what they come up with.
