If they were dried when you stored them, they should be safe to eat. Depending on how they were stored, the worst that could happen is losing some potency through psilocybin breaking down when exposed to heat and light for long periods of time, but in a freezer for example, they should last quite a long time.

SWIM utilizes a large canister for 2yr old shrms for his adventures. As long as they were dried and stay dried, they are fine.

I thought I'd heard that freezing temperatures pretty much destroy shrooms psychoactively. False?

Yeah they should be good unless exposed to a lot of heat.

False. If you put fresh mushrooms in the freezer and thaw them they become snot. That doesn't diminish their potewncy though. If you put dried mushrooms in the freezer in an airtight vial, they are every bit as potent in 2017 as they are now in 2007.

LOL if you put wet shrooms in a plastic baggie in your glove compartment I wouldn't eat them a year later :lol:



...a ziplock doesnt mean airtight though. If you want airtight, especially useful are soda pop bottles. These are often throwaway and because they have to keep the bubbles in, they are virtually airtight.

That is highly educational. It's a good thing syringes last a long time. I was wondering what I was going to do with all the extra yield from cultivation...
