Potency loss when air/sun drying?
    #3000294 - 08/13/04 01:08 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Had to pick a few stray growing shrooms.. there wasn't enough to trip so I had them drying on the windowsill in the sun...

It took about 3 days to get them completly dry.
They were 17 grams fresh and are now at 2 dry... so what do you guys say would the potency look like... should they still be relativly good?!? Once dry I put them in a ziplock and in the freezer...

UV's are one of three enemies of psilocybin/psilocin heat being another one with LEO not far behind! :frown:

Hmm... sorry but that didn't really help me a lot.
UV's I suppose you mean Ultra violet rays (as emmited from the sun).. well they were behind a glass window... heat is obvious but what are LEO's...

and anyway... the question was, how much potency can I still supose will be left, I know it wasn't the ideal drying method myself, I just want to know how much potency should be left... thank you

i am sorry my friend but there is no answer to your question. Only the mushroom knows how many potency has been left...

haha .. hmm ok seems like a good enough answer, I just thought perhaps other ppl had air dried there harvest before and had some idea of what potency to expect... anyway, thanks

So true! LEO= law enforcement officer. Also UV's are only affected by windows designed to block them if thats your case then you should be good to go unless they were sitting on a black surface :wink: I have fucked up drying way too quickly with heat but once dried heat is much less an issue and the time it takes to say make tea will have little noticable effect. Mushroom potency varies from flush to flush and is something that cannot be determined by a simple question, now if you would like to send an adequate sample I'd be happy to tell ya! :wink: GL
