what is lost compared to what is left would depend on how much was there to start with.

at least thats what kramer says

TripleB, your shrooms are just fine! :laugh: Don't worry man, pretty much every cubensis mushroom has a blueing effect when dried, its just the psilocin oxidizing. Blueing will also occur anywhere that you touch the fruit, it will bruise it and turn blue. Mushrooms have a higher psilocybin than psilocin content. In any mushroom bought on the street, you will be hard pressed to find ones that dont have some blue, and if you do the psilocin has still oxidized.  So just eat those babies and enjoy! :wink:

I have read many times that heat will destroy the active compounds and you must be very careful in the drying stage. I make tea and boil my mushrooms for some time, and it is fully active as a cold alcohol extract. The tea will turn blue, then eventually so dark it looks black. I also use a dehydrator that cooks the shrooms at 140 degrees F., some of them come out very blue.

I thought it wouldn't work and I would have weak mushrooms. Not so. Every bit as strong as when I would dry them at 90 degrees and eat them dry (they still were blue then)...
