Hey brothers and sisters,

Just wondering if anyone has tried Stamets 'blue juice extraction' with any success. If so, is it any better than tea or just plan wasteful? I'd love to know peoples opinions on this.

Peace,

Frosty

Here's a good thread about it.  I'm not sure it answers your question though.  I've never tried it.

It sounds like it involves combining fresh mushrooms and ice, and then letting the ice melt at just-above freezing temps over several days.  My thought is, why wait several days when there are plenty of methods that work right now-ish?

 

That said, I doubt it wastes much.  The cold and wet could preserve most of the goodies that are in fresh mushrooms?  Just speculating there.

Got me a tray of dark blue juice cubes in the freezer, Cube cubes I guess. Well Mr Stamets, I'm impressed so far. Tonight I got to the Bahamas :)

I was looking into this tek a while back and even tried it but I probably rushed it. I didn't really get anything out of it but it did trigger an idea for long term storage. It occurred to me that I could use the empty freezer pop bags to store the blue juice. The best part is the cubes won't evaporate like they do in a self defrosting freezer.

Honestly, I'd have to say the same. I felt that mild euphoria, heavy body feeling and that was about it. A lot better on the stomach though, except for the next day you still have the normal effect at the other end. I brewed this over only 2 days and probably should have been over 4 or more days. In saying all this, I normally need a heavy dose. This would be a good tek for those with weaker stomachs who aren't wanting to go to far down the rabbit hole. I also noticed a small amount of separation within the ice cubes. Perhaps it would be best left as juice.

 

Peace,

Frosty

i blue juiced about 3g and felt nothing. The juice had a nice deep blue color but it was all show and no go. I must have missed something...

Making tea and freezing the tea in ice cubes sounds much faster.. might not be blue but I can have the tea ready in about 20 minutes and it definitely sends you to the moon.. no maybes involved and no stomach issues
