I agree that you are probably correct in thinking that if one species of shroom doesn't work then none will...
...BUT the shrooms also contain other things, and those things make them different. What I'm suggesting is that certain shrooms may be better at delivering psilocybin to certain individuals than others. Also certain shrooms may contain other CH friendly compounds that assist the psilo in reaching the parts that certain other shrooms might not. This effect may also depend on the body of the individual (and what they had to eat). For instance I have used propanolol (unsucessfully), but I find that in different tablet forms the propanolol has a markedly different effect. Now tablets are relatively simple structures compared with the 1000s of chemicals present in each strain of shroom.
See where I am coming from. Now to back this up scientists have found EXACTLY this effect with Mary Jane and THC. THC is not as effective at treating MS isolated on it's own as it is when ingested as dope. Also certain strains of marijuana produce better results than others. Also we are all aware that certain shrooms produce less gastric upset, taste marginally better, come on faster, produce a mellower trip, produce a more gradual uptake, produce a longer lasting experience etc etc, largely independantly of their psilo concentrations.
In fact fuck it - I've convinced myself now.
