Maybe a test for the brave could be a cold water lemon tek to dephosphorylate aeruginascin to 4-ho-tmt. A la psilocybin to psilocin.

Isn't that what happens in the body following ingestion anyway, and what is being hypothesized to be causing WLP (rather than aeruginascin directly)?
 

Good quality Syrian rue (Peganum harmala) for an incredible price!

Certainly is, was drawing attention to the metabolite. It can also be seen that 4-HO-TMT isn't interested in 5ht3 receptors. Regarding the bufotenidine paralysis being caused by its strong affinity for 5ht3 and suggesting aeruginascin also. I can't find much regarding aeruginascins affinity for 5ht3 receptors. If it has a high affinity could it be some aeruginascin isnt being dephosphorylated in vivo before hitting the 5ht3 receptors and inducing WLP?

Good read here:
https://www.dmt-nexus.me...spx?g=posts&t=94787 regarding 5ht3 receptor being the culprit.

so a 3 stage test.
normal brew suspected to induce WLP.
normal brew with Juiced ginger to block the 5ht3 and avoid WLP based on 5ht3 hypothesis.
a cold lemon tek to dephosphorylate aeruginascin to 4-HO-TMT, which we know doesn't have an affinity for 5ht3, assume to avoid WLP based on 5ht3 hypothesis.

So now we have a suspect, is there any substance that can block these effects?

Maybe with some of the woodlovers, it would always be wise to at least always have something at hand that could stop these effects.

I've been going through other forums and so far all reports are from eating (dry and raw), teas, or lemon Tek.

So far I cannot find any woodlovers paralysis reports from an ethanol tincture.

Nice to bring back this topic.
I would be interested in helping to research this stuff.
I got it once, with old cyanescens, and stopped all experimentation after
because the effects are really, really unpleasant.

But it would be better to know how to prevent this, because woodlovers are so
easily available psilocin-fabricants.

Possibly but not certain. In synthesis only 'less soluble' than impurities can be good enough because if the ratio to product to impurities is high before the wash.

See attached for an old paper from Gartz. I think they used the 24h ground room temp methanol extraction to get the indoles (including aeruginascin I believe). This implies some solubility in methanol.

I get wood lovers paralysis. Below 2 grams there is usually none. Over 2.5 grams I loose ability to focus my eyes well after the peak. 4 grams or more the inability to focus is very pronounced. Can not focus my eyes at all. Quite strange. Also weakness in the quad muscles. It seems to become more pronounced every time; which seems to implicate upregulation of the receptors responsible.

In terms of extracting away from the compound; I would place bets that, if the compound is aeruginascin the Casale A/B extraction would not extract it because a weak acid should not remove the positive charge of a trimethyl amine. I could be completely mistaken. People here seem not to like the Casale procedure but reports indicate ascorbate works well to stabilize the extract.

Otherwise extracting to methanol, drying, and then recrystallizing seem like the best option; although would have no idea whether or not this would exclude aeruginascin. I would think aeruginascin would be soluble in methanol; because small charged compounds seem to be universally soluble in water and ethanol/methanol.

This is what I would do to try to decrease the aeruginascin ratio:

1) Cold water/ice extract of diced mushrooms. I've done this before when trying to get the blue juice and it was not active. However, it may efficiently extract aeruginascin.
2) Consume as usual after the cold water extract. As mentioned in the link above, the mushrooms were still very active after the cold water soak.

Another option I would try is to make a mushroom tea, cool it down quickly (with ice), add baking soda to make the solution slightly alkaline and the actives less positive, and quickly filter with a cation resin (standard stuff used in water filtration), acidify immediately with lemon juice to minimize chances of oxidation and consume.

Loveall, downwardsfromzero

I am looking for some evolutionary insight into quaternary ammonium salts.

Quaternary ammonium muscle relaxants are quaternary ammonium salts used as drugs for muscle relaxation, most commonly in anesthesia. It is necessary to prevent spontaneous movement of muscle during surgical operations. Muscle relaxants inhibit neuron transmission to muscle by blocking the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor.

Incidentally, several quaternary ammonium compounds such as candicine have been found in cacti and candicine has been shown to cause paralysis in frogs. So, bufotenidine = quaternary arylethylammonium compound = paralysis; candicine = quaternary arylethylammonium compound = paralysis; aeruginascin = quaternary arylethylammonium compound = found in mushrooms known to cause paralysis???


Is it possible that the evolution of human digestion away from consuming quaternary ammonium compounds is the reason for the interaction? Is it frequently occuring in plant life or not? Are there any other examples of quaternary ammonium salt containing plants that you have come across? What about sources of the gene coding for this? Is this a radical in a complex process, or is it an easy to identify gene involved with simple processes?

Another query if gene info is found: can you trace back a likely genetic mutation that allowed for this substituted amine version? Are there tertiary ammonium cations alternatives?


Find the wisdom to practice loving-kindness.

To add a data point, about 2 hours in to 430mg dose of Ps. ovoideocystidiata there was an episode of noticeable weakness and incoordination in the legs. (This was not autosuggestion - at the time it was thought to be related to a pre-existing spinal injury.)

Muladharma, the quaternary ammonium compounds block various kinds of acetylcholine receptors because the shape and dimensions of their charge distribution allows them to fit into the receptor site. Further plant-based quaternary ammonium compounds with a neuromuscular blocking action include tubocurarines and calebassines, classic components of arrow poisons. Their molecular structures are considerably more complex than the simple methylated arylethylamines mentioned above.

Tertiary amine cations would simply be something like protonated psilocybin. Other than that, I'm struggling to grasp what assumptions your question regarding "the evolution of human digestion away from consuming quaternary ammonium compounds" is based on. Methylation is an incredibly simple and universal biotransformation.

From this position he has access to the realities which are ordinarily hidden from us by time and space, matter and energy. This is what we call the Great Work."
