potency lose?
    #2160757 - 12/05/03 09:47 AM (13 years, 2 days ago)

How much potency is really lost in drying w/ a food dehydrater. I dryed about 3.5 g (dryed)hoping that it is still a few doses any help would be great.

Looks like we are in mushroom country.

does your dehydrator use a heating element? If so, expect enough potency loss to notice. If it doesnt, expect little, if any, potency loss from the drying process.  Heat, light, oxygen, and moisture - not friends of the fungi  

As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know.

I thought that heating didn't decrease potency?
