how long will they keep for?
    #4709240 - 09/25/05 12:21 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

me and 2 other friends were planning on trying shrooms for the first time in a couple of weeks. my question is, how close to the date should i buy them? like, if i bought them today or tomorrow will they still be good or should i wait until closer to the date to buy them? if it matters, i'll probably be getting them dried.

Dried mushrooms will last forever, although they might lose potency over the years.

Welcome to the Shroomery newcarcaviar!

Yes, you can keep dried mushrooms for a few weeks without any noticeable potency loss.

Make sure the mushrooms are cracker dry!

There's nothing you can do before they get into your hands...

...but once they are yours, put 'em in a mason jar.

Two weeks won't make much of a difference. FYI, if you ever have shrooms you want to store, make sure (as has been mentioned) that they are dry as possible, put them in a ziplock, and try to squeeze or suck (*wink *wink) all the air out of the ziplock as you seal it.

dried mushrooms can last up to 5 years - the T.R.U.T.H

No matter what I say and no matter what I write here.

I'm sick of always looking at this page with a blank stare.

5 years?? The only way I could see the shrooms retaining potency over that long a period of time would be if they were completely dessicated, stored in a vacuum-sealed container, and kept in darkness in the freezer or the fridge. (Maybe if you put them in honey, as well..?)

But I'd be quite surprised if you didn't lose at least half the potency in 5 years without optimum storage conditions.
