psilocin content of dried fruitbodies
    #2338293 - 02/15/04 07:17 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

So if a fruitbody is dried at 70 degrees F via fan and dessicant, is there a reduction in psilocin content of the dry mushroom? So what exactly degrades psiocin? I know heat will but does O2 break it down as well?

Ok I searched the drying section of both faqs.

This is what the drying section of the GENERAL MUSHROOM FAQ has to say...

Quote:

Mushrooms are best when fresh, both tasting better and working better. The freshness affects experiences a lot. The "divinity factor" is enhanced




"divinity factor?" thats a pretty flimsy quote to stick in instead of real data! I would like to see that replaced by some real information instead of an opinion. Does anyone know of replicable data on this subject?

Here is the entry from the mush cult faq on drying/storage...

Quote:

They may be dried in a gas oven at low heat (140 F or less) for 6-10 hours.
They may also be dried under a heat lamp, on a screen over a heating vent, or in a small electric food dehydrator. However, these ways use heat which can effect the potency of your fruits if too much heat is applied for too long time.




This is the only reference to potency in the mush cult faq, and it only concerns heat, so I'm still trying to figure this one out...

o2 is the reason they turn blue when brused of broken, so yes o2 effects potency. it breakes down the good stuff, psilocin alot faster. time also breaks down the good stuff, these chemicals are unstable.
