If dried properly, on the average, the dry weight is about 1/10th of the wet weight.

One time I dried, I only ended up with 7% of the wet weight.

MycoExpert - where`d you come up with this new name??? you`re the furthest thing from an expert on here.

Fresh or dry if you dry them properly you won`t notice any difference.
Certainly not 70% different.

You should change your name to MisinformationWhore.

70% as potent, or 30% less potent. This means youd need to eat about a third more dry.

That is just total bullshit. If dried properly, they is no noticeable potentcy loss.

I think not.

There is nothing surprising about USAloser being wrong. The dude is the most misinformed idiot I think I've ever seen. And the bad part is he spouts this shit off like it's fact. There needs to be a sticky thread at the top of all forums stating that LSA and all his now many forms are completely ignorant and his posts are devoid of any factual information. This could save a wayward newbie from ever listenening to this fool.

He definately should not be allowed to use the name MycoXpert, jeebus that is hilarious, and possibly dangerously misleading. God help us all.

I agree in some respects matts.
I would have to say though, if you dry them right they really don`t loose much potency.
I`ve noticed this on many occasions.
Also as was stated above, the loss is hardly noticeable.

Yep divide by 10 is usually the easiest . 90% water 10% solid matter . :cool: 

ps As much as I disagree with LA OOSSER IN THE USA  .
Fresh is best , the high is much better also in my opinon , seems like it comes on a bit faster also . But that is just the opinon of an old fry brain ! :wink: What do I know ? :tongue:
Was'nt this post about estimating wet to dry weight ?  :blush:

Even that theory is problematic at times.
I`ve grown a batch of PR which maybe decreased by 20% in size.
The mushrooms were still massive.
They were solid chunks of mushroom.
They dried literally to at the most 20% less.

So you are saying that a mushrooms total mass is 80% solid matter ? How interesting even we as "thick" and "dense" as we humans are , we are  comprised of 80% water and 20% solid materials . Interesting all that I have seen and done , learned is a bunch of bull shit ! I need to quit tripn so hard !
How do I grow these mushies that lose no weight (almost no weight ) , and no potency(noticable or not potency is lost) when they are dried ? Damn what a waste of time with these ones that require so much moisture to survive ! :wink:
