If properly dried, the loss of potency is minimal, can't give a percent though.

I would say it is quite substantial. I've tripped the best off of some half dried cubies. I was trying to make a Keller williams concert on time when some friends decided to trip also. We had to eat some cubies which had only seen about 5 hours of drying time. The dry weight would have appreciated to only abut an eigth dry weight. All three of our imaginations were satisfied.

I deffinatelly haven't noticed much of a difference.
If you have a strong mushroom the chances of being able to vary between different states be it fresh or dry, are very difficult.
Take enough and you`ll trip regardless of dry or fresh.

If you can eat alot less mushrooms when wet and trip just as much as a typical dosage then obviously alot of potency is lost. Wet is definately better. I'd rathen eat a few tasteless wet cubies anyways, then some smelly dried ones.

If your mush is smelly when dry then you`re losing more than potency.
My mush tends to look the same but dry.
They smell great, taste great and are as potent as all hell.
Dry them well and you won`t notice a drop in potency.
