Dried & stored with desiccant .... question
    #349543 - 06/26/01 09:34 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Lets imagine that everything is dried and stored according to PF TEK / MMGG. But neither guide conclusively states the length of time full potency will be retained. "Months" is kind of vague. Any experience?

Oxidation is the primary reason of potency loss. Try this:

Put your harvest into a pint or quart jar...Get a small amount of dry ice from a grocery store(handle with care..will bond to skin), cut a sugar-cube sized piece and drop it in and quickly put the lid in place(Just lay it on and DO NOT turn it I repeat..DO NOT TIGHTEN...

Within a few minutes the dry ice will have evaporated from its solid state and what you are left with is CO2, which can preserve potency for years...Tighten the lid and you are good to go.

Vacuum sealing will also prevent oxidation. Drop in some dessicant, vacuum seal, keep it cool and dark, and I bet it would last for years. And the best vacuum sealer is also the cheapest! Check it out:

Less than $20 delivered and it works exactly like the web site says it will.
