There is no difference in potency if dried correctly, other than of course you have to eat about ten times as much by weight for the same dose (they are about 90% water by weight when fresh).

They don't really 'smell', other than slightly.  Not enough anyway to give anything away if that's your concern.  It's a very subtle organic smell which could easily be assumed by anyone to be like your socks in the corner or something. :smile:

There is a whole section of drying info if you mouse up over "Mushroom Info" and then down to "Preserving Mushrooms" in the menu that pops up.  There is alot of info on all sorts of topics in that menu as well, that isn't necessarily found here in the board itself using search.  And it's slightly more organized.

Like Spudz76 said, dry shrooms can be just as potent as fresh shrooms if done correctly. They don't really smell when dry but when they are drying or wet they smell what may seem like ^^^ socks.

The way i dry my mushrooms is i take a cardboard box, put my shrooms in it and place it on top of an electric radiator at ~85% with a fan blowing on them. This gets them cracker dry in about 10 hours. The temp isn't enough to cause alkaloids to break down, but it helps to dry faster.

By volume dry shrooms are more potent so you can eat much much more. With wet shrooms me and my friends joke that we ate a meal of shrooms because you feel full.

Some potency is always lost in the drying process. There is no way to prevent this, although I spray with an ascorbic acid (vitamin C) spray which seems to help prevent oxidation. It eliminates the blueing reaction at least.

Research data from chemical extractions and TLC suggest that a large portion of the psilocin is lost within 24 hours at room temp in aqueous and alcohol extracts.
