Shroom Storage?
    #26689371 - 05/22/20 11:11 PM (2 months, 16 days ago)

What is the best way to store shrooms long term? Vac Pac and into the freezer?
Or Vac Pac into a drawer? And how long will shrooms keep their potency for long term storage if stored properly?

              Thank You

There are reports of 100 year old dried mushrooms still containing psilocybin; so if you dry and store correctly, the sky is the limit dude. Make sure they’re cracker dry, and put desiccant Sachets into the air tight bags also.

I like to make a tea from my fresh harvest, nd freeze the tea in ice cube trays. Stores fresh long term. Don’t try freezing fresh mushrooms though, the freezing breaks the cells and turns the mushrooms to mush when you thaw them.

Good luck

Lots of options and even some crazy ones I've read about out there.

But think about what the biggest enemies are:

Oxygen
Light
Moisture

Here is what I do:
Food Dehydrator to get them CRACKER Dry!
Amber colored wide mouth mason jars
Pump n' Seal hand pump
Food Saver Wide Mouth jar sealer (vacuum sealer)
Desiccant packs

This effectively pulls a majority of the air from the jars leaving the desiccant pack to help defend against any other oxygen and moisture while the amber colored jar keeps out light.

I then just simply store them at room temp. Some people have had success storing them in the freezer but the potentiality for moisture always made me nervous.

Thank You
  Could you please tell me what size desiccant packs would work for a pound of dried shrooms would be right? (how many grams?) And what you think are the best and where do you buy yours?

do you have access to proper vacuum sealing?
if so go ahead get them cracker dry, seal them up and they will probably hold for a looong time stored in a cool, dry and dark place.
maybe it'll hold a decade.. never stored that long but just maybe a decade, maybe longer?

I boiled up 3.5g of dried Golden Teachers on Saturday night. I have been having some intense trips recently, so at the last minute I didn’t drink it all, maybe 2.5g. Also I did not boil with lemon juice, as I have done for a few years, to try and have a less intense trip. The date I put the dried mushrooms in the freezer was March 2017; they were still super potent, with no noticeable drop in potency. And these were stored before I had my dehydrator; air-drying for 5 days followed by 2nor 3 days in a desiccant chamber, I could get the mushrooms down to about 10% RH, I.e. not cracker dry.
