Pick the ones that are done, dont let anybody tell you that you have to pick them all at once, thats silly...I like to let mine finish till the cap is totally flat, dont short yourself unless you just feel like picking them before the spores drop, some people say spores inhibit new pin formation, but im not sure if ive experienced this or not...also people say to pick them before the veil breaks for potency, but ive had no complains about flat caps at all, so its more of a preference...

Yes dry them right away, I like to fan dry for 24 hours on some paper towels and stick them in a tub over some damprid overnight...then after they are HARD AS A ROCK, cracker dry, dont store them if they are soft...then I store them in the freezer in some of those air tight latched jars...they stay great that way...just keep them out of the light and away from air...

theres a thread about it over in another part of this board but I cant link it cuz it wont let me...lame

They are fine to pick after the veil tears, you wont get much more mush by waiting for the cap to totally open, you will just get spores all over the place...

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.
