A two year old bag of shrooms?
    #3711674 - 02/01/05 04:47 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I've got some shrooms that were given to me almost 14 months ago. I was told that they were already a year old at the time I got them. I've kept them in their original ziploc bag in a dark drawer and assume they were previously kept in similar conditions (low light/air/temps). Is there any chance they're still good?

are they still crackerdry? (if so you can easyli break them in 2)
how is the smell?
I think if they smell ok that they're still good, might be a little weaker by now though

They will still be good. Shrooms can last for 5 years easily if properly stored, especially powdered, and there are reports of them retaining 100% potency longer then 5 years.

Thanks guys. I figured they'd be almost worthless at best. They are good and dry though. Can't believe I've held on to them so long. I'll have to find a good time to try them out soon.

Will do. Although I actually forgot to check the smell earlier. They do have a bit of an odor. Not a bad one though. I can't really describe it. Hopefully that's not a bad sign.

Ok, I finally tried them on Sunday night. No problems at all, they worked fine. Here's what I started with:



No idea about the weight, but it looks like about an eighth to me. Just guessing though. It was about 1.5 tablespoons total after I crushed it up. I ate roughly 2/3 of it to begin with, followed by the rest an hour or so later. I tripped quite hard and the colors and mindwarps during the peak were quite amazing, and I'm no stranger to tripping. Also, the bodily effects weren't as bad as I've had with previous shroom trips.

Anyway, I'd been waiting to try a shroom/salvia combo for a while, so I took the chance. Unfortunately, I waited too long after the shroom peak and misfired with the salvia, so I wasn't able to break through. Maybe next time.

All in all, it was a great experience though. By far my most powerful mushroom trip ever. It's been nearly 3 years since my last one, so it was an excellent reintroduction.

I'm in the same Boat 2 years ago I bought a 1/4 ate an 1/8 and tripped hard by myself hiking through the woods, it was incredible. I still have an 1/8 in an airtight tupperware container stashed in a cold dark place. I kept shrooms for over 3 years in a film canister and still tripped hard i thought they would have degraded so I ate the whole at a dead show in 93' Giants stadium and had a blast. Shroom trips fit neatly into my time schedule these days with 2 kids, good job, house everything is alittle busy. Peace and have as much fun as you can even if it's less these days. Never stop exhausting this lifes pleasures.

It was a weird sized bag that I hadn't seen before. About half-height, but the width was normal. It was sort of resting on its side in that pic. Also, I wasn't able to get it powdered thoroughly. I just bashed it with a huge spoon while it was still in the bag, then crushed it up in a bowl with the same spoon. I measured the first tablespoon and eyeballed the rest, so none of this is accurate. But it doesn't really have to be. This was about my 10th shroom trip, give or take, and was probably twice as much as I've taken previously. It felt substantially stronger than what I remember of shrooming, but never got to be too much.
