Yeah Well if you like Ill heat up a few for your salad man
No, no, thats OK - Im talking about the psychedelic stuff. Magic Mushrooms...
So am I - do you still want them on your salad
Huh Oh...sure. Yeah sure, pile em on
Psychoactive mushrooms are either eaten fresh which supposedly produces the most powerful and intensely visual experience or dried and consumed at a later date. Others ingesting the mushrooms from this paddock also suffered various forms of muscle weakness e.g. lazy eyelid,
which is extremely unlikely to have a

change in consciousness. In several cases, strong and robust men with extensive experience of psychedelic drugs collapsed

It is safe to say that we currently know a
great deal about the nutritional requirements of
Psilocybe cubensis. To a lesser extent, such
information is available about other species as
well. Armed with this knowledge, future
researchers may well discover new insights into
physiology of these species, as well as the
biochemical changes that occur during fruiting.
In my experiments, it has already been
established that the process of differentiation
whereby mycelia are transformed into sclerotia or
fruiting bodies is linked to increased production
of psilocybin as well as psilocin, especially in
Due to the relatively complex
methodology and the type of equipment needed to
isolate and maintain sterile cultures, it appears
unlikely that cultivation of Psilocybe cubensis
mushrooms by laypersons will significantly
heighten the mushroom's popularity or widen its
area of distribution anytime soon.
However, since the early 1980s, growing
numbers of mycophiles in North America and
Europe have successfully used "natural outdoor
cultivation" to fruit Psilocybe cyanescens and
similar species. This process involves selection of
natural wood substrates striated with mycelia
(rhizomorphs) that usually turn blue in response
to handling. The mycelia are then transferred onto
fresh wood chips or commercial mulch (not from
cedar trees). After several months of growth, the
mycelia fruit during the fall season.

SPOTLIGHT ON NORTH AMERICA AND HAWAII
In 1961, V.E. Tyler became the first
investigator to report the detection of psilocybin in
Psilocybe pelliculosa (Smith) Singer & Smith,
a North American mushroom species. One year
later, two research groups, working independently,
discovered psilocybin, as well as psilocin, in
samples of Psilocybe baeocystis Singer & Smith
from the Pacific Northwest region of North
America. Additional chemical and taxonomic
The hospital staff were not told of his intoxication, he was sutured without difficulty, and
departed the emergency room with his companions. All persons in the study were asked if they knew of anyone who had required
acute medical treatment, and except for the case discussed above there were no other instances known to those in the sample.
According to Dr. K. L. R. Jansen, there are no reported case histories in the NZ medical literature. Wheretofindmagicmushrooms
