loss of potency thru drying?
    #2616289 - 04/29/04 03:08 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I know the dosage ratio of dry to fresh is roughly 10%. Also that thru drying, psilocybin breaks down into psilocin and the already present psilocin breaks down. So wouldn't 35 grams fresh be more potent than 3.5 grams dry?

It's possible, not really. Assuming they were dried properly, they should be pretty much equal.....but of course you never can tell. Sometimes they have a lot of water weight, making the fresh less potent, sometimes it's the other way around. They are essentially the same though.

i am just following up on what cheifthunderbong(cool name :headbang:) said. There are many variables that can effect how the potency will turn on with mushrooms. If they were dried properly it would be relativley close (IMO fresh mushrooms are better) but it can also change from different types of mushrooms. For example Ps. Beaocytis(sp?) is very potent when wet but loses a lot of potency when dried and Ps. Semelectea(sp? i suck at spelling these names) or liberty caps will lose very little potency in drying.

There is a slight loss of potency that occurs during the drying process. Nothing to worry about though.

So long as you dry properly (ie: use damprid, et al, NOT heat, keep away from fresh oxygen) there will hardly be any (i mean practically no) difference in potency

Just wait and let them dry properly...
