Simple Psilocybin & Psilocin Extraction
In this experiment 28 grams of dried mixed cubensis was chopped and placed into a jar. The mushrooms are soaked in pure alcohol in warm water bath for 7 hours.
This was done by placing a rag in the bottom of a pan and filling it up with some water.
Placing the jar of soaking fungi on the rag in the water and bringing the heat up slowly.
NOTE: Alcohol boils at a lower temp (78 C). than water. Watch it closely. you don’t want the alcohol to boil!
Straining and squeezing the fungal matter 3 times. Saving the broth each time. Filtering many times while hot. Through coffee filters.
The combined strainings were then added back to the heat bath and brought up to almost a boil.
As the alcohol evaporates and the level recedes down into the glass, wash the residue that adheres to the inside of the glass back into the solution. Any fumes that are generated will be harmless because the alcohol is a non poisonous drinkable spirit. Keep flames away from the solution – pure alcohol is very flammable.
Finally put the mixture in de freezer to let the crystals form, this will take a couple of hours.
Pour off the darker pure grain and wash the crystals in some fresh everclear while they are frozen. Put into final resting place and add just enough fresh everclear to keep the crystals covered to store in the freezer.
30 mg of crystals smoked with a vaporizer
It came on about 1 minute 30 seconds into the induction. The initial rush was more profound than vaporized DMT experiences but not as intense as 5meodmt vaporized. The visual aspect was that of DMT and maybe even a bit more, hard to say, there was much going on.
Auditory and physical symptoms persisted throughout the 20 minute peaking experience. The come down was much like the downside of oral administration or fungi. After effects persisted for about 30 – 40 minutes after peak.
