The finer the particles of a given compound, the more surface area is exposed to oxygen. If you intend to grind them up finely, then immediately pack the powder as tightly as you can into "gel caps". Any health food store or pharmacy should have these on hand. The idea is to keep as much air as possible away from the powder. Once your gelcaps are full, seal them in an airtight container, the smaller the better.
Even with these precautions, the powder will lose its potency faster than an entire dried mushroom stored under the same conditions will. For this reason, it is best to prepare your gelcaps just before you think you might need them.
