Ok guys, I've been reading some of the different extraction ideas for geting the magic out of the mushrooms. I think it would be awesome to have a vial of psilocin or psilocin gel tabs, ala cid (it's just so easy to dose, ya know)... Has anyone been able to actually do this? The methanol extraction looks promising, but obtaining the methanol might be difficult. I've read the alcohol extraction tek, and it seems easy enough. I've just never seen anyone post their actual results on here. What kind of yield are we talking about? How much magic is lost in the extraction? What about acid/base extraction like for DMT? Any thoughts, or even better, anyone with some actual expirence doing this, with some results maybe? Thanks guys..

I've done it with vodka (smirnoff.. 40%, althought the 100 proof would work better -- If you can't get the 200 proof they suggested)

Anyway, heres what i did if your curious

Take X amount of shroom powder (grinded dry shrooms) and dump it in a jar..

Pour enough alcohol into the jar so the powder is completely saturated.. the more alcohol you pour after that, the greater time evapourating... and less left over booze to get drunk with.

After that.. let it soak up for 2 days and shake it every once and awhile.. you'll notice the color turn to a nice dark blue/purple... after that.. pour it through a coffee filter or something, and squeeze the left over material..

from there, you can :

A) soak the left over crap in more alcohol and
repeat the process another 2/3 times


B) Throw the shit away because your lazy.

I chose the latter.

Anyway.. pour the liquid into a pan or a wide bowl.. (more surface area the better) and run a fan on it 24/7. You'll notice the rings of dry'd material around the edges of the bowl... just scrape it back into the solution..

Keep evapourating it to the desired amount (gets thicker the less you have)... do it so that
You have approx. as much liquid (ml/cc's) as you put in grams.

IE... 6 grams = 6 cc's

in the end you'll have a vial of purply blue stuff that will knock you on your ass if you arent careful ;)

I've heard you can soak a sugar cube in this stuff and dose that way if you wanted, but why waste the time :\

Well, personally I don't recommend it. It's like taking something that's already clean and cleaning it again. I can see concern with easy dosage. If you want easy dosage get a small coffee bean grinder and grind dried shrooms to powder and put the powder in (00) size gelatin capsules then put them in a vitamin bottle.
If your heart is set on alcohol extraction, use ethanol not methanol because even though you'll be removing it it's still poisonous. Pure (200 proof) would be best, but Everclear will work(95%)
Powder dried shrooms and soak for 24 hours, shaking frequently then filter and evaporate under vacuum if possible. If not use a fan. it should be done in a pyrex cake pan so you can scrape alkloidial residue together. then keep that in the refridgerator. you will lose 10-15% during this process but if purification is your fetish, there are many different things you can do with the ethanol extract, especailly if you can get absolv chloroform for crystalization tek.
You will never have (hits) of psilocin in gel tabs or blotter like with acid becuase an active dose of psilocin is fom 3-5mg. rather than micrograms with lsd. 1 dose capsules are possible though

two things to consider.
once in solution, the 'magic' degrades quickly.
this stuff is best used within a few days of making it.
light and heat will destroy it even faster,
so store it in the freezer.
adding 100 mg of ascorbic acid will help stabilize the magic while in solution.
then i like to make it into jell-o shooters.

Been reading about psilo extraction. Read many teks, but need some help re solvent.

What compounds can the shrooms be soaked in that will extract "the magic"? I know alcohol will work but dont know where to buy any.

Would like to know of non-toxic, cheap (to buy or easy/cheap to produce), solvent that I can extract the shrooms to and evaporate down to a small quantity.

I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA. Please treat me like a 5 year old. We call many things by different names here and I am pretty sure I cant buy quantites of ethanol or stuff like that here.

Also, does anyone know of a good place to get canning jars in oz? Preferably a place that can deliver as I live in the "middle of nowhere".

I think I (may have, I have a mind like a seive) heard that vinegar would work to extract "the magic", but how would that go being evapourated, would it leave yucky residue?

Please help!

water works, just evaporate it off to concentrate the extraction.

you can use any jar with a wider mouth than base, use foil for lids.

how long would it take for it to extract out into the water?

Wouldn't the water take a *long time* to evoporate? Would heating it up and blowing a fan at the surface help much or are there better ways? How hot could I heat it up before the magic starts to fade?

Advice greatly appreciated!

water evaporates based on humidity, a fan blowing warm dry air will do a decent job, just don't use alot of water to start with.
