2003 Japanese study that explores psilocin and psilocybin content of cubensis and copelandia.

I've attached the whole study as a .pdf, in the meantime, here's the abstract:

Morphological and toxicological analyses were performed on hallucinogenic mushrooms that are currently circulated in Japan. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) indicated a three-dimensional microstructures in the mushrooms. The comple- mentary use of SEM with an optical microscope was effective for observing characteristic tissues, such as basidiomycetes, spores, cystidia and basidia. Hallucinogenic alkaloids were extracted with methanol and determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with a UV detector set at 220 nm. The psilocin/psilocybin contents in Psilocybe cubensis were in the range of 0.14–0.42%/0.37–1.30% in the whole mushroom (0.17–0.78%/0.44–1.35% in the cap and 0.09–0.30%/0.05–1.27% in the stem), respectively. The hallucinogenic alkaloids in Copelandia were 0.43–0.76%/0.08–0.22% in the whole mushroom (0.64–0.74%/0.02–0.22% in the cap and 0.31–0.78%/0.01–0.39% in the stem). It thus appears that P. cubensis is psilocybin-rich, whereas Copelandia is psilocin-rich.

If someone could figure out how to post table 2 from page 90 that would eliminate the need to go through much of the article!

I have been trying to post that table to the thread.. but my Mac isn't as cooperative.:mistrust: I tried taking a screen shot of it and posting, no luck, my cpu isn't uploading anything apparently. Tried other sites, no luck there either, so it's not Mycotopia. Try taking a screen shot from your cpu and doing the same, i'm sure you will have no problem.
Good Luck.
