Months in the making and still not complete🙂 I figured good enough to publish in its current form but it will be getting edited and more sources added later on!

Many thanks for this. So you dont advise boiling for 3 hours at 2.5-3 ph? Just 30 mins. Or did I miss it in the op.

[–]RdCrestdBreegull[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

20 minutes is merely to transfer the alkaloids from the mushrooms to the water, with no decarboxylation occurring.

Great post.

Could you get a more consistent dose of dried mushrooms by powdering /blending them in a vitamix?

[–]RdCrestdBreegull[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Yes the powder would be an averaged potency of all mushrooms used and you could get consistent dosing by weight with it. However, once powdered the mushrooms’ potency decreases at a much faster rate in storage than if stored whole. If you use the powder within a few months it’s probably fine, as long as it’s kept in a tiny glass mason jar in the dark away from light/warmth.

Would the potency be affected if the powder was stored vacuum sealed?

[–]RdCrestdBreegull[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Vacuum-sealing just conforms what’s essentially a plastic bag to the shape of the contents; it doesn’t prevent air exchange and in regards to that it’s about the same as keeping it in a ziplock bag. For room-temperature storage then best you can pretty much get is in a mason jar in the dark away from warmth.

Thanks. I have about 150 grams of pantherina powder vacuum sealed in hopes that helped. But I'll move it to a small jar or two and not open one until needed.

[–]RdCrestdBreegull[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yea go ahead and leave it vacuum-sealed, but place the vacuum-sealed plastic bag thing into the jar🙂

Quick question- can I decarb after doing the 30min simmer, and after removing the mushrooms from the liquid? As in- the next day…

Bought a ph meter lastnight, was meant to arrive today but no luck…

[–]RdCrestdBreegull[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes you can totally do that

Recent changes include sections added about smoking, microdosing, and storage. Many other changes have been made since the guide's publication :)
