IS this true, this is from a TEK. I read before that freezer is bad, takes away potency, after 6 months, nothing. Maybe I;m wrong, let me know

Magic Mushrooms loose their strength with age and the two worst enemies of dried mushrooms are heat and light.

Always store dried magic mushrooms in a fridge or freezer in a bag that light will not penetrate.

A good idea would be to enclose the mushrooms in an airtight bag (ziploc or similar). Squeeze out the air, seal and put in a brown paper lunch bag.

A freezer will not harm potency if stored correctly so that no moisture can get to them. Mushrooms cracker dry placed inside a plastic bag, inside a canning jar with some desiccant is my idea of stored correctly. I'm a firm believer in mushrooms NOT losing potency over time if stored correctly. There are more reports and stories of people tripping off old shrooms then there are of folks eating bunk shrooms that were too old.

They'll probably retain potency for 5-10 years or possibly much, much more.

I have had vacuum sealed cracker dry ones, set in the freezer a year. They would KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF. Trick is mummy dry, vacuum sealed & they will last for decades - without loss of ANYTHING.
