Drying The Shrooms with... Air?
    #4152968 - 05/09/05 12:27 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Well I have a piece of eggcrate i have been sitting my shrooms on to dry. I just lay them on there, cover up with a triangled piece of paper (folded like a hotdog) to prevent light from hitting the shrooms directly. My question is how much potency am i losing letting my shrooms air dry??

I just started picking yesterday, but I wanted to ask beacuse i have a serious flush that is going to be needing picking tomorrow or the day after. The shrooms picked last night seem to show they will be dry by tomorrow, or the following morning. One shroom picked 4 days ago is now stiff as a cracker.

I don't want to be wasting my shit so I just want to make sure air drying isn't too bad. Also when picking a flush is it okay to leave some of the small pins coming up. Tomorrow Six or so shrooms will need to be picked, But, there is prolly about 25 other shrooms ranging from primordia to decent sized pinners. Any help would be word, im about to go to work so ill check when i get home. Later.

No matter how your shrooms are dried, they will lose a good amount of the psilocin. No more with any one method over any other will be lost though. Its more potent to eat them fresh...however any dried shrooms you had were lacking that psilocin. Its a very unstable chemical. Psilocybin however is stable, and wont break down (mostly untill you injest.

Air drying wont however work all that well to get them completly dried.

American Harvest SnackMaster dehydrator tray at work.

So bone dry, you can crush them to a fine powder, with ease.
