Way back in college, during the early 70's, we harvested a lot of these 'shrooms. I don't remember getting CH during that period, nor do I remember much at all, come to think of it.
I am, however, planning a nice drive in the country this week end. I know there are a lot of cow pastures along the way. We used to pick the 'shrooms out of the cow-patties in the early morning, before the dew had evaporated. I remember that we needed to be careful to process them before the maggots hatched. I don't know if the maggots affect the effect but they do affect the visual appeal, no matter how you garnish them.
Today, I am restricted from using this type of treatment due to other considerations, so all I can do is pass along my memories and experience on this subject.
BTW -- I thought ergotamine was derived from a bread fungus not cow shit.
