Storing dried mushrooms?
    #1979644 - 10/04/03 08:41 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

If I had some dried Cubensis, what would be the best way to store them? And how long would they stay fresh?

Thanks in advance!

Try storing them in honey, after a while the psilocybin(cin) leaches into the honey and u can dip your finger in it for a trip!

^^^^^^
Do you use honey? I?ve been sceptical about it. How long do they stay good that way? :oogle:

I have mine wrapped in 2 paper towels, in a ziplock, in a tupperware, in the freezer.

I'm curious about the honey thing myself. I was planning on making chocolates and storing those in the freezer.

The honey thing sounds interesting.

How's the taste?
What's the ratio of shrooms:honey?
Does the powder settle at the bottom?
How can you get an accurate dose?

I?ve read that before, and remained sceptical :smirk:

I was hoping to get some "tried-and-learned" experiences from you...

The best way to store them is vacuum packed with some desiccant (DampRid) and stored in the freezer. If you don't have a vacuum packer, store them with a little desiccant in a tightly closed jar in the freezer. Make sure they are absolutely cracker dry before you freeze them.

Follow these guidelines and they'll keep for a year or more with no appreciable loss of potency.

Good luck!

In an airtight glass jar or container with one of those rubber seals. make a desiccant sachet by filling a reusable cheesecloth teabag with desiccant and store it with the fruits. Keep away from heat, moisture, light and grubby roomates.

By light to you mean sunlight or just the ambient light (floros) in your room.
