Rise Of The Mushrooms

UPDATED, October 4, 2020

Mushrooms––it seems the majority of people either love them or hate them. If you consider yourself in the “hate them” camp, you may want to reconsider. Because if you haven’t noticed, there’s a trend happening right now in the supplement shops and health food stores. Exotic gourmet and medicinal mushrooms are gaining huge popularity, both as a source of food and as daily supplement extracts in powdered or capsule form to enhance health and overall performance. Good news for those of you that disrelish the taste and texture of mushrooms.

It’s no wonder they’re gaining momentum in the health and supplement industry. The nutritional and healing powers of mushrooms have been known since ancient times. Mushrooms like the caterpillar fungus, cordyceps, have been used in various practices since at least 5,000 BC! Reishi (Japanese) or lingzhi (Chinese) mushrooms were thought to be so important and powerful that they were known as “the mushroom of immortality”, where as lion’s mane mushrooms are famous for enhancing brain function.

And then of course we can’t leave out the amazing psilocybin-containing magic mushrooms. The mind expanding capabilities of these mushrooms leave most people in awe and at a loss for words. Because they're psychoactive, most governments have unfortunately made them illegal for human consumption. They are; however, starting to regain traction in popular culture since the psychedelic era, and have become an interest for more medical researchers as a treatment for depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, anti-addiction and more.

With the general population becoming more and more health conscious, people are finally rediscovering and realizing the potent healing potential of various mushrooms. Many supplement companies now offer mushroom extracts and blends tailored to meet a persons’ specific goals, whether it be improving memory, or as an adjunct to fighting cancer.

Mushrooms, and fungi in general, are incredibly powerful organisms. Famous and increasingly popular mycologist, Paul Stamets, puts it best, “Mushrooms come up and disappear in four to five days. Some can feed you, some can kill you, some can heal you or take you on a spiritual journey.”

I take lions mane every day and love it. Stacking that with a microdose of magic mushrooms would be amazing!

It would be a game changer if Denver decriminalizes psilocybin mushrooms this year!
