I took a bunch of scraps I had accumulated and made some extract up.

I took a big half gallon jar, filled it with the scraps, filled with 99% ISO alcohol, and let it soak an hour shaking it about every now and then. After the soak it was strained through a t-shirt and then evapped.

I went from this here -

To this tiny lil bit here -

Went from a bunch of dirty scraps down to 1.2 grams of black gooey mushroom stinky stuff.

Now my question is about how to dose it. According to Erowid, a heavy dose of psilo is 50-60mg. 1.2 grams is 1200 mg, or 20-24 doses! There is very very lil here. I'm unsure how pure it is which is not making any dosing decisions easier.

As always, any advice, is appreciated ;)


There are another 107g of cleaner scraps ready to get done up tonight...

Keep track of the weight dry going in and then maybe use the goo for jello shooters based on how many doses the dry would have been.

Sol can tell you much more than I!

Sorry I can't make a comment on the potency Dooby, it might have to come on a trial basis.


You only soaked it for an hour? Is that enough time to extract all the magic?

Please let us know if you trial this. An hour is not a long time at all :thumbup:

Like Roc said, knowing the weight going in will help you gage the dosage.

Find someone crazy enough to jump in head first? :lol: not recommended at all.

If you don't know the weight of what you just did, why not try eying out that stuff in the bin into that jar and see how many inches high it is for whatever weight it is, then ratio it to your estimated height from the snaps you took?

Estimate for what went in... I'd say about 4-5 ounces... around 115-150 grams of actual mush material. There was a lot of verm and things left over in that last one.

The new one is 107g of nearly perfectly clean scrap material...



Yes, only one hour... I figured that tea works shorter than that, and it's water, not alcohol... If someone thinks it should be done longer, I'll do it longer. Why I'm asking. :)


hmmm

Hmm, maybe it was a bit more than 4-5 ounces because the 107g, almost 4 ounces, only fills up about half of this half gallon jar. The last jar was just about full.

Actually, I think I misquoted Erowid.. sorry :) It's an even lower dose than I thought! - http://www.erowid.or...ybin_dose.shtml

Psilocybin is the major psychoactive agent in psilocybian mushrooms. The main difference between psilocybin and psilocin is their relative stabilities...psilocin is much more easily oxidized, so deteriorates much more quickly than psilocybin. The following chart shows approximate oral dosages of psilocybin in mg.

Oral Psilocybin Dosages
--------------------------
Threshold 2 - 4 mg
Light 4 - 8 mg
Common 6 - 20 mg
Strong 20 - 40 mg
Heavy 35 + mg


Onset : 15 - 20 minutes (when held in mouth)
Duration : 2 - 6 hours
Normal After Effects : up to 8 hours

So you've got ~60 doses?

60*3g = 180g dry.. does that sound about right?

I've experimented with short term alcohol extracts..A one hour room temp extract will only grab about 20% of the goods ime..Heating the alcohol will work faster but still produce limited results in that short time period..
Also ,once dried down - the resulting tar is very unstable and will weaken with time..
I have only worked with Everclear though ,so your results may vary..

Gluk though Dooooby....

Yah Ive done it but if u put it in the freezer the decay of the material decrease significantly of course tho I ground mine up in a coffee grinder then add the solvent (alcohol) let evaporation accure filter it then alcohol again on the remains filtered evaporate and add to last batch and transferr to a jar then to a freezer till use..but always unused material back to freezer.

Could be, but again, the material was not all clean, there was verm and bits of other stuff... Really not sure.

Damn, only like 20% huh?

How fast or a breakdown/degredation are we talking? A week? Month? Couple hours? A day?

At room temp i would guess that by day 7 ,half or more of the potency is lost...
Freezing the goo should help alot but have no idea how much...

If the tar extraction was a viable method, i think it would be quite popular...

Too bad a quick extraction doesn't pull all the magik out and that it degrades fairly quickly.

Still would like to hear how it goes Dooby.

I like to let my cool everclear sit for about 6 weeks. I guess I wait too long :lol:

I like that you used iso alky though. Hope it makes you a happy penguin :)

Results, nadda :( Sorta suprising, but then again not really. Wasn't sure what to expect though. .6 eaten, no fx.

So, will try again with something. I hear that vinegar is the thing to use to really get the psilo out...
