Good Job there man! I just found this incredible thread. Been a while since ive been on.
Had to harvest a bear and been picking mad chanterelles and lobsters! Havn to much work and fun to even do anything else.
Wehn I started reading this thread I was thinking that would be a very potent mushroom... very potent.. Funny that it turned out to be.
So any word back??

Ive got a small pile dried now. Also managed to take about 10 light prints which I divided in half so ive got 20 half prints. Still havnt contacted Workman, me and the dog have been too busy diging up truffles. We found a whole pound yesterday! There is a crazy story to the day too so Ill be posting that later.
Anyhow the dried mushrooms have turned quite dark despite drying out in a few hours, I mean some of the stems are completly black. Probably lost a lot of magic there but Iam not to eager to do a bioessay just yet. I need a few more gentler friscosa or cyan rides before I indulge in these.
Ill keep you people posted on the progress!

I've heard the same thing about Azures (and likely Bohemica as well) , but until you try them fresh , and try them dry , and eat them over the course of a year ... then your in a position to know. When people make blanket statements in this hobby , you just got to find out for yourself. Often they are wrong.
All psilocybes should be dried cracker dry , and stored in as air-free , dark , cool place as possible ... woodlovers are no different , but actually I find they hold their potency over time more-so than cubensis. Maybe its because they have skyrocking amounts of magik to begin with.
One of the most important factors is the time of harvest. With some species , like the black staining , higher level woodies , particularly Azures & Friscosa etc. You need to harvest the fruits before they "rot" and deteriorate and get taken over by worms. When they get rotten , the high gets degraded accordingly. Aborts , young specimens , and fully open , but not rotten adults are the ones that make for a "good trip".

Dried cyans smell awesome actually, a lot better than cubes!
Ive got my mushrooms dry as bone, and vacume sealed in bags, then rebaged, and finally jared up. I have them in a secure location in a cellar where temps range arund 5-10 c year round.

I'm wondering if this mushroom's stem butt would take to some moist egg carton or cardboard.

The Quebecensis is one i've read about , but it's much smaller and doubtfully as potent as something like the Bohemica.
You could make sawdust spawn or plugs and go around drilling & filling holes with this species in stumps and logs , the way you would oysters ....
Way to go Kocos !
Good eye !
