drying mushrooms. Air bad?
    #14509521 - 05/25/11 01:59 PM (9 years, 11 months ago)

i read that air causes the psilocin to oxidize which decreases potency so should i not use a fan to dry them and only use drierite?

fan is fine, if you use a dehydrator you need something with temp control...

correct me if i'm wrong, but the oxidation occurs from bruising, which is usually pressure such as squeezing or cutting the mushroom, in some cases just overhandling it can bruise. bruising breaks the cell walls and exposes the psilocin to the air, which is why it turns blue when you handle the mushrooms.. meaning as long as you dont bruise it, no cell walls are broken and no psilocin is wasted

a fan wont bruise it, but a dehydrator can destroy your alkaloids if you can't turn the heat down.
