dried vs fresh?
    #2609813 - 04/28/04 02:33 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

why does one need bigger amounts of fresh shrooms than dry ones to trip at the same level? do dried shrooms contain more psilocybin? what happens during the drying process?
why eat fresh shrooms when u can dry them, eat less to trip and would last a lot longer too?

because when you dry them the weight gets less .
shrooms are for 90% made out of water. so 10g fresh shrooms equals 1g dry shrooms.

Actually I'm confused. When I took my last 1/8th, it was like..2 stems, 2 caps, and like half a stem.

2 stems, 2 caps, and half a stem of fresh mushrooms would be the exact thing would it not? I don't see the point of drying them either unless you're going to sell them, or for dosing/weighing purposes.

Drying them prevents molds from growing on the wet mushrooms. You can keep fresh mushrooms for ~one week in the fridge, but if you need long term storage you really should dry them.

No it wouldn't. you have to go by weight not volume.
