does the heat from a dehydrator destroy psilocybin/psilocin?

As long as you have a thermostat on it. Keep it under 114 degrees to retain optimum potency. I do mine at 105.

I am not saying there is a reason to go higher than 114 for drying purposes but it takes really high levels of heat to destroy the actives. You can boil and cook with them without any loss. It's a myth about heat. I have cooked with them and made them into tea for years now without any noticeable loss.

OP do not worry about heat degrading the actives. Simple as that.

But when making you teas or cooking with them you guys do not put them in the heat for long periods of time.

i've been using a fan and it works pretty well, but by the time i've grown the mushrooms, i hate waiting another 2 days before i can at least put them away.

Often times for an hour I will steep the tea...no reason just but it on while getting ready for the trip and when I am my shit together, I strain the tea and put it straight into a thermos to keep it hot for hours. The molecule is much much more sensitive oxidation that it is heat.

I stretch a piece of cloth over a lamp shade (make sure it's far enough away from the bulb to not get too hot) and put my shrooms up on the top part and let them sit for a bit. Takes about 8 hrs and makes them bone dry. Sometimes for larger guys it can take up to 12 hrs and for small ones it can take as little as 2 hrs. I have checked the heat a few times and it gets to about 105 so all in all it works pretty well. No need to spend money on a dehydrator, at least not for me. Can you guys justify spending 50 bucks on one?
