Paul Stamets - Cold Water Extraction of Psilocybin from Fresh Fruits

 

(EDIT: At 8:11pm EST July 10, 2017) --- I edited and clarified the wording of the text description of the extraction method just now so please refresh this post to get the latest update if you've viewed this post prior to this time period.)

 

I came across this link elsewhere and did a site-specific search via Google and DuckDuckGo for Mycotopia, but did not find any existing posts that indicated that this information has yet been posted to the forum here.

 

The following hyperlink links to a Youtube video of one of Stamets' latest talks/presentations hosted by MAPS in which he discusses a new finding: A cold water extraction method of extracting psilocybin from fresh fruits. This will not work on dried fruits. You use chopped psilocybin fresh fruits and ice cubes.

 

The method is detailed at the linked timestamp (Follow the link and it will play the video starting at 20 minutes and 43 seconds in) and I highly suggest watching it. The entire talk is worth viewing in its entirety.

 

https://youtu.be/vFWxWq0Fv0U?t=20m43s

 

In short, take your fresh psilocybin mushrooms, chop them up, and simply place them in a glass filled with ice cubes, then put the glass into the refrigerator to let it slowly thaw. Simply leave this for a while and you should start to see blue water as the ice cubes melt. You will be left with blue water containing extracted psilocybin from the fresh fruits. Simple yet beautiful.

 

Direct link (Should embed to be played here within the forum) to the talk is directly below. You can manually skip to 20 minutes and 43 seconds into the video to see the related information on the cold water extraction technique.

interesting lecture, I never knew that Psilocybe Azurecens caused temporary paralysis.

Each time I watch Paul Stamets some idea floats to the top.  This time I was delighted to fantisize about how some additional empathy and cognitive development might improve the performance of our big cheese in our capital.  So please remember to take some blue ice cubes next time you dine with Don the Con...

so if ice is good would dry ice be better? maybe mixed with H2O it would be all kinds of cold, slowly melting, and a residual water left with the goods in it?

one would think that dosing the water supply with large amounts of LSD should suffice.....

My guess is that you are effectively freezing the fresh shroom and bursting the cell walls to release all the goodies. Freezing dried shroom doesn't burst the cells; that's why we dry and freeze to preserve potency.

Just my educated guess :)

Great Vid, I've seen other videos by Stamets touched on some same topics but here he expanded a bit more, great find.

Wouldn't we be better making ice cubes with water with bicarb of soda and camomile tea. So the ice cubes are alkaline. Then the water would turn brown until we add lemon juice as we drink it for blast off

What do you think is the yield for this technique. I would suspect well under 50%. Thus you are losing half your magic. Assuming you have a ton of product then no problem but I would think that eating the entire fruit, fresh or not, would be best for effective use of available medicinal alkaloids.

Good point.

 

You could eat the depleted / steeped mushrooms to see what was left. Might just be a few microdoses, but even so, you could heat dry them and take them or eat them wet.

I think you would need to chop them finely to expose the surfaces. Make a smoothy of sorts and then filter out the bits
