HOw long do dried shrooms stay 'good' ?
    #604198 - 04/10/02 12:42 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

How long can I have a sandwich baggie of dried shrooms for and have them still hold their 'maximum potency'? I want to wait for a week to 'use' them. And I was wondering that if you eat some shrooms and trip, and then eat some more in a little bit, will you keep tripping? Is it better to eat them all at once, or half now and half later?
Thanks,
T

They will already have started to loose their maximum potency. The four killers are light, heat, moisture, and oxygen. The better you limit those four factors, the longer your fruit will last. A glass jar is better than a plastic bag. Your fridge is nice and cool and dark.

Just keep them in the fridge with the bag sealed tightly and you should be fine. You wont have lost enough to notice.

Shrooms are surprisingly resilient, but you do have to take care of them. I kept some shrooms in double zip locs in a metal tin in a drawer for 7 months. I sold most of them, but the eighth I took definitely still had its kick. Just keep them in an airtight container in the dark.

As for dosage, IMO you are better taking them all at once because of the tolerance your body develops to psilocybin, but some people like to ease into trips and waste shrooms I suppose.

Hi, This is another case of reposting the same information over and over in this forum.

If the mushrooms are fresh. Never keep them in plastic baggies.

use paper. You can store them in a refrigerator for 7 to 10 days and they will stay fresh,

Dried musrhooms, i store properly can keep their potency for years.

one collection of liberty caps from England dating from 1851 were found to be as potent as shrooms picked in ORgon and Washing ton in 1977.

Keep them away from light and heat, although many use dehydrators with heat to dry their shrooms. I have a good method for drying and preserving shrooms which I still use today for edible mushrooms of course. check my shroom guide at http://mjshroomr.yage.net/species.html

I can vouch for this. (I'm also assuming they're dried, fresh don't stay fresh for more than a week). Keep them in the fridge, or at least in a cool cabinet. If you're using a jar, think ahead of time and "pour" some CO2 off of your fruiting chamber into a jar and seal it. It's denser than air, so it will displace it within the jar. Then once your shrooms are dry, drop them into the jar full of CO2 to keep oxygen from degrading the actives. If you're using a zip-loc,  just vacuum it down with a coffee stirrer and seal. Again, put in a fridge or cabinet.
