My friend just ordered some online. I forgot from where, but I think it was like 10 bucks for a few ounces maybe. Just enter dessicant into a search engine you'll find some shit.

Check out the Hurricane Tek:


What would dry your shrooms more efficient than the
combination of warm air and air movement commonly found in a
late summer hurricane? 100 mph 100 degree winds ensure quick
drying without compromising potency. Problem is, those damn
hurricanes show up when and where they feel like and they
don't stick around long enough to do the job!
Now, with Captain Max's Hurricane Tek, anyone can dry
their shrooms with the force of a hot-weather hurricane.
Follow these simple instructions......

Turn oven to 100 - 150 degrees. Place shrooms on sheet of
paper on middle rack. Split thicker stems for faster drying.
Plus the bluing that will occur makes them look real cool!
Leave oven door open.

Place small fan on door positioned so that it blows directly
on shrooms. Flip your shrooms over every 15 minutes or so.
They should be cracker dry in about 2 hours or less. Smaller
pieces will be ready sooner.

Store in a canning jar, make sure the lid is on the right
way. Throw in a small pack of dessicant for extra

Take a trip to the Spore Lab @:

Crackhead? I haven't been around these boards for long, but the good captain seems to be a knowledgable guy.

I doubt that the low temperatures he describes using would alter the potency. As I understand, it takes higher temperatures than 100-150 degrees to break down the active chemicals (correct me if I'm wrong, someone).

Also, it doesn't make much sense that shrooms are physically more potent when dry. There is a difference between dilution and physical potency.

I dont touch the stuff . . .

I doubt thaat they would lose that much potency simply because people often pour boiling water over their shrooms to make tea and you dont hear about a loss of potency there.

Yeah, that's funny. I doubt that a dried shroom is more potent than the same shroom except fresh. As far as I know, drying shrooms doesn't increase the total amount of active chemicals. MisterShroom is right too, temps less than 150 degrees will hardly alter the potency. That's why people use them in tea and in food sometimes. Of course the food has to be pretty much already cooked before you add the shrooms. I'm thinking fresh shrooms on top of a cooked pizza perhaps sprinkled with some extra cheese and then baked until melted and shrooms are dried up a bit.

Drying shrooms no matter how it is done does decrease potency, psilocin in particular is lost in heavy amounts due to drying, so they will be less potent dry than fresh, but it's more important in other species which have a higher psilocin content than cubies.
