Have my dried 'shrooms retained their potency?
    #558754 - 02/21/02 06:31 PM (15 years, 5 days ago)

Well, have they? I picked about 200 psilocybe semilanceata last September and have had them between sheets of paper in the loft from then on. They're completely dried out, but I don't know whether they'll still be active. If so, does the potency decrease at all through drying?

Cheers!

it does somewhat. I think they should still be good after 5 months though. Probably have lost a little potency, but nothing major. I have eaten some that have been 8 months old and kicked ass.

potency loss from drying is only really extensive when you dry with heat. Over time id assume that it loses a little potency, but youd still trip on those if you ask me.
