as far as getting robbed goes, is it possible to be sold fake magic mushrooms that look exactly like the real deal, such as psilocybe cubensis?

Reality is merely an illusion,

Albeit, a persistant one.

its possible, but not very likely, because most shrooms are grown in huge batches and theres no money in fake mushrooms.

Yer, anyone who sells fake magic mushrooms is probably going to get a very large beating from a very large group of people...

I'm sure it can happen.. I've never heard of anyone being ripped with mushrooms like that before though. I guess the best thing you can do is smell/check them out when you get them? Haha.

I've been sold fake blotters of acid... haha how disappointing/greedy Posted Image

It's possible but not likely. Sellers need regular buyers, and they're not gonna keep any customers by dealing out Shitake mushrooms.

If you know what different mushrooms look like dried, you should have a very vague sense for what is what. The colors fade, but the shape will generally stay the same.

Psilocybe Cubensis also have a distinct taste from edible ones. Though I don't know what non-psychedelic, non-gourmet mushrooms taste like.

thing was, i wasnt there, my buddies all got it while i was in DC and i gave them the money ahead of time. we dont know the guy personally and doesnt go to the same school or anything. also found out they werent fake. just weak. everyone said they worked, just not much. so if i cant sell it by monday, ill take them and smoke weed to enhance the effects. i ended up also saving money cause i gave them 15bucks and was gonna pay back the other 15 but instead traded my friend some weed that some chick sold me for 3 bucks. she was flipping out about how she needed to be rid of it. so i really only spent $18 on the 8th so its not a big loss.

and since ive been pushing vicodin this weekend which i bout 30 pills for $60, ive been selling it anywhere from $3-5 depending on how much i like or dislike the person so im mak9ing money back anyway

Heh, that's a LOT for Vicodin. How man milligrams were they? Just out of curiosity.

I had some weak mushrooms as well. An eighth did nothing. So the next time I dosed I took an ounce of passionflower (plant matter and all with the water), and had a GREAT fucking time. The MAOI properties of the passionflower at least doubled the potency of the mushrooms. I suggest that if you can't get rid of them.

Happens all the time. They busted 10lbs of fake mushies at the last festival I was at. if you know where the dealer lives (or if someone you know does), then you should be alright. At a festival, out of town, or with someone you can't trace...don't buy quantity.

Can you explain more about this situation? It seems so strange for people to be selling fake mushrooms, and cubes are so easy to ID! I'm curiouse what happened? - SW

Did they do nothing at all? How many did you take? Were the stems blueing and everything?

I'm not cool with the dealing of opiates, people get addicted to it fast and want to buy it from you all the time and it gets sketchy... But hey, it's what you want to do, so do it! lol

All of the dried mushrooms I've had didn't blue (maybe I just didn't pay attention). I'm fairly sure only fresh mushrooms react that way.

High quality mushrooms WILL have some blue in them when you break them in half. everything else is low-grade swag. The kind stuff that you eat an 1/8 of. Yuck!

That's possible, but I think mushies need moisture to blue. Maybe it just depends on how dry they are.

I can't really comment, though. I've only bought dry shrooms 3 times and never payed attention to the colors. I usually go for fresh ones.

i ate about a quarter of them and no they did nothing at all. Yeah the stems were blueing and all that. Thats what i get for buying drugs at a concert, you always run the risk of something being bunk.
