cold water extraction ?

I ordered a smoke blend from @Amanita Research which contained herbs that were "misted with cold water extracted A. Perscina"

I am curious to the preparation method.

The potency is much much stronger ( compared to the first smoking blend I bought before from A.D) but honestly makes me nauseous most of the time, so i stay away for now.

the first time i smoked a bowl, combined with weed, i felt it in my body for hours and hours into the night. Though it was pleasant, at times a bit woozy-nauseaus-head swigging feeling

anyway, just some snippet reflections of recent smoking expererience - the mushroom is always communicating. doesn't mean it'll react the same again or to somebody else.

I am curious to the preparation method of this cold water extraction.

CWE is pretty standard. Think making a tea with little to no heat. You can use some alcohol in your extraction to keep it more shelf stable allowing you to soak the fungal material for longer to extract more actives. Also this would make sense for spraying a smoke mix as the alcohol content will cause evaporation to be quicker than with pure water
