Were they exposed to any heat while drying? Sometimes heat can cause a loss of psilocybin/psilocin in the mushrooms. I know that I dry my PF/MRs under a fan, in cool temperatures, for a day. I then immediately place them in a dessicant box in the fridge. 2.5 grams dried in this manner knock me on my ass.

No heat, just on screen in front of a fan in 70 degrees. Probably 2-3 days like that, then in a bag in a container with dessicant, same temp. I'm starting to bum! I hope I didn't ruin all my friends!

Heat when drying is not an issue.

I dry my shrooms under a 60W bulb that generates some heat, and they are perfectly strong and nicely dried.

Unless you dry them at _extreme_ temps you should be OK.

How long did they take to dry is an issue by the way. Mine are cracker dry in 1.5 days.

3 weeks at room temp will strongly degrade the magic.
store cold, fridge or freezer.

Dam, is all that hard work wasted? He's been storing the dried goods in a bag in a sealed container with dessicant, but at room temperature. His ultimate goal was to harvest a whole bunch and be able to store for a long time in capsules. This would allow for tripping while traveling etc. and not having to grow all the time. Is there no way to store without refrig? Thanks again.
