1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

Quantitative Analysis Of Psilocybin And Psilocin In Psilocybe Baeocystis

By High-Performance Liquid Chromatography And By Thin-Layer Chromatography

    Journal of Chromatography, 207 (1981) 379-385


    Rapid quantification of psilocybin and psilocin in extracts of wild mushrooms is accomplished by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography with paired-ion reagents. Nine solvent systems and three solid supports are evaluated for their efficiency in separating psilocybin, psilocin and other components of crude mushroom extracts by thin-layer chromatography.

    Very interesting read, I do wish a field gun could be developed for measuring the indoles quantities while still growing from its substrate. There is so much work that needs to continue, keeping such naturally occurring substances from research by free men without sanctioned permission from arbitrary governing bodies is outrageous.
    However if permission were attained I could dedicate life to pursuing the ultimate method of isolating and preserving the individual 'indoles of interest' for hopes that they would find use in psychiatric, physiatric, and educational fields. The sociological implications seem like a pipe dream, but mine own experiences as well as those known to me point toward a more than plausible amazing outcome if the whole of society could decern the possibilities of the truly 'Magic Mushroom'.
