That should be fine man, i used to dehydrate at 180 with no noticeable potency loss.

130 F is fine... Begin worrying about potency near 200 F.

its subjective. there is no way for normal people like us to "test" this theory. but if people are happy at 200F being the limit than to one his own. im sticking with 120F being the threshold. never gone over that and have been happy. tried drying in the oven at 185F once and was unhappy with the results. so live and learn.

That's what I found when I USED THE FUCKING SEARCH ENGINE. (UTFSE)

:smirk:

In reality, no one can be 100% certain. The good news is that your 130F is fine, tested tried and true.

i did search, i always do but reading things from 6 years ago doesnt seem to be that great of an idea. especially around here, where things seem to change all the time. thanks for the information anyway.

if you can make tea, pizza, chili or any other food thats cooked with mushies on/in it (cuz it still F'ks u up) then your dehydrator wont effect your potency. IMO. :stoned:

oxidation (IMO) is what kills potency, so dry fast and store (air tight) with desiccant or silica packets if thats your worry.

Here’s my 2 centavos. 

So many people say heat doesn't affect potency.  However, I use a more realistic standard.  Dry and store them the same way and at the same temperature you would store prescription drugs at.

I use 100f as my upper limit.  I fan dry for a few hours, then into an airtight desiccant chamber, and I use a good desiccant.  Cracker dry in two days at most.

Just my opinion.

okay. sounds good to me. i've done over a pound like that. if you put as much care into drying as growing then you wont take the easy way out. i put in the time and everything is fine. im sure i could use heat to dry my mushies and everything would be fine but i take pleasure in taking my time and drying the way that has ALWAYS worked for me

I use the same method no matter how big the load.  I just increase the size of the desiccant chamber.  Like this:



This has 750g (a little over 1.5Lb) in it.

Cracker dry takes a little longer but I still don’t go above 100f.
