AFAIK, psilocybin and psilocyn are equally distribited throughout the
mushroom equally. It's a myth that the caps are stronger than the stem, or
the vice versa.

Years ago I remember a girlfriend whom was given a good amount of cubies
as a gift. She ate several caps and handed me the stems (is 'stem' the
proper name?). She thought she was eating the most potent part and giving
me the leftovers. Little did she know, haha. The stems, by weight, were
much greater than the caps and I ended up with a signigicantly stronger trip
experience than her, as evidenced by her report of her own trip. That was
the first time I had shroomin' sex, which was FANSTASTIC ... but I digress.

there are mixed reviews on this.... according to established literature, cap
and stem are the same thing, just different formations of the same
myceliim...

a friend of mine claims to have done an experiment, where he isolated caps
from stems, then tripped on equal weights of each a week apart...

he claimed he tripped much harder on the caps...

I say the jury is still out on this one... folklore and my friend's
subjective experimentation say the caps are stronger, the literature says
otherwise...

the only way to find out is to devise an objective experiment, maybe get
equal weights of caps and stems, do an extraction on both, and subject the
extracts to chemical analysis...

My personal experience is that the entire mushroom, from the mycelium to the
cap is equally potent. I received a gift of 1/2 of mycelium from some guys
on their way home from a show. Gotta say, one of the best experiences I've
had on mushrooms, and I only ate 3 grams of the stuff. The "dirt" gave it
an interesting crunch. Not the usually mushiness you get in your mouth.

Regardless, if you grow and throw out the used up mycelium, you are wasting
a great gift for yourself or your poor friends..

Indeed, lest we not forget A Gottliebs recipe for psilocin, which calls for
the production of mycelia only.

There are several mushroom species that are commonly only grown to the
mycelial stage. Jeff Chilton, co-author of the Mushroom Cultivator
grows the mycelium of several medicenal species. The mycelium is
dried, powdered and shipped to asia to be repackaged in little
capsules.

But it's more fun to grow thm out!

Psilocybin mushrooms possess psychedelic properties. They are commonly known as "magic mushrooms" or "shrooms", and are available in smart shops in many parts of the world, though some countries have outlawed their sale. A number of other mushrooms are eaten for their psychoactive effects, such as fly agaric, which is used for shamanic purposes by tribes in northeast Siberia. They have also been used in the West to potentiate, or increase, religious experiences. Because of their psychoactive properties, some mushrooms have played a role in native medicine, where they have been used to affect mental and physical healing, and to facilitate visionary states. One such ritual is the Velada ceremony. A representative figure of traditional mushroom use is the shaman and curandera (priest-healer) María Sabina. Medicinal mushrooms Currently, many species of mushrooms and fungi utilized as folk medicines for thousands of years are under intense study by ethnobotanists and medical researchers. Maitake, shiitake, and reishi are prominent among those being researched for their potential anti-cancer, anti-viral, and/or immunity-enhancement properties. Psilocybin, originally an extract of certain psychedelic mushrooms, is being studied for its ability to help people suffering from mental disease, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. Minute amounts have been reported to stop cluster and migraine headache

Psilocybin mushrooms (also called psilocybian mushrooms) are fungi that contain the psychedelic substances psilocybin and psilocin, and occasionally other psychoactive tryptamines. There are multiple colloquial terms for psilocybin mushrooms, the most common being magic mushrooms or 'shrooms. And Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principle active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Psilocybe cubensis belongs to the Strophariaceae family of fungi and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis. The mushroom's cap is reddish-cinnamon brown to golden brown in color with white to yellowish stipe and will turn bluish/greenish when bruised.
