How Psilocybin Extraction Works
When most people think magic mushrooms they think a dried mushroom that they either grind up, boil, or eat whole.
Nowadays, with the introduction of sophisticated extraction processes its become easier to create a wide variety of products.
Psilocybin extract products are a clean, reliable, and consistent way to get an even dose every time.
Thanks to pharmaceutical and cannabis industry, mainstream extraction processes makes it easy to make products like edibles, tinctures, capsules, and more. This makes it easy for consumers to enjoy products in whatever form they are comfortable with.
We will cover:

- The Steps of Extraction

Understanding the Ingredients
The Extraction process starts with the ingredients and parts of the mushroom.
Cap and Gills
The Caps and Gills contain the most psychoactive ingredient that allows for the maximum effect when consumed. There is a greater concentration of psilocybin and the extraction
The stems are less psychoactive part and don't contain enough biomass to extract a significant amount of psilocybin.
Step 1. Dry and Blend
Step 1 is to take fresh mushrooms and dry them out over an extended period of time. Dried mushrooms retail more of the active ingredients for longer and can be used months, if not years after they have been dried.
After the mushroom is dried, the caps and gills are separated from the stems to get a more consistent and concentrated extraction. Taking a high powered blender, the dried caps and gills are blended to a fine powder. The consistency of the powder can effect the oil extraction process.
Step 2. Breaking Down Cell Walls
During this step, the powdered mushrooms are put into pressure cookers in order to breakdown the cell walls. Once the cell walls are broken down, it allows for the psilocybin to be processed much sooner. Rather than letting our own bodies breakdown the walls through digestion, this allows us to skip that and allow for more immediate reactions to occur. The scientific terms is called “Bio availability” which is to make it easier for the body to breakdown use.
Step 3. Extraction Process
At this step, the extraction occurs. There are a number of extraction methods that can be used to make either a solid or liquid which can be used in a number of products.
Alcohol extraction is an age-old method to create tinctures. The process involves soaking the dried mushroom in alcohol over the span of a few weeks. The soaking process extracts the active components of the mushroom. Alcohol is often the liquid of choice, as it can extract components, such as resins and alkaloids, that are not water-soluble. People usually take tinctures orally by using a dropper to place the liquid under their tongue.
This extraction method does the reverse of the cold-water extraction. It takes the moisture out of the dried mushroom even further and evaporates the liquid leaving only a solid form of the compounds which mixes into the existing dried material. This allows for products like teas and capsules to be made.
A more traditional method, this method involves taking dried mushroom and breaking it down over time. and straining it through water. This process of osmosis works similar to the way a french Press works for coffee. the water suction slowly extracts the oils and other mushroom components and separates the solid and liquids.
Ultrasonic Psilocybin Extraction
Ultrasonic extraction of works very well with ethanol or methanol as solvent allowing to it so work hand-in-hand with both extraction processes. The ultrasonic treatment breaks the cell walls of the mushroom so that the psilocybin and psilocin molecules are released into the solvent. This allows for a wider range of products to be produced such as edibles, capsules, tinctures and more.
Benefits of Psilocybin Extraction
Clean tasting, ultra potent and easy to dose. Effects are felt within minutes and without the gut rot usually associated with eating fried mushrooms.
A Better Experience
Clean tasting, ultra-potent, and easy to dose. Effects are felt within minutes and without the gut rot usually associated with eating dried mushrooms.
A single 1mL dropper has a whole gram of extracted mushroom. A few drops under the tongue are all you need for a powerful experience.
Effects are felt within minutes. Extract absorbs immediately through the membranes of your mouth and upper digestive tract, unlike regular dried mushrooms that need to slowly break down in the stomach.
Zero Gut Rot
None of the unpleasant tummy issues are usually associated with eating raw mushrooms. Extraction removes the mushroom cell walls (chitin) eliminating stomach irritation.
1mL of liquid extract has 1g of extracted mushroom making it easier to precisely dose. Visually guessing the weight of dried mushrooms can lead to undesirable effects.
Whether you prefer gummies, tinctures, or chocolates, extract can be made into a variety of easy-to-consume products.
Extracts can be carried in small bottles or vials that fit easily into your pocket or bag. Add a few drops into the beverage container you’re carrying and you’re good to go – no one is the wiser.
When developing and growing our products, we looked to help solve one simple question.
What can we provide people to help with their mental and spiritual needs?
Through our research and exploration, we were able to find ingredients that worked. Not only did were they effective but they were naturally grown and used in cultures around the world for centuries.
History has a lot to teach us when it comes to curing and assisting people in their time of need. Now days we can do a lot of research in dissecting and analyzing each compound and chemical interaction to make some very solid conclusions that helps with people’s unique body chemistry and mental status.
Healing is a journey and we understand that, we get that every person has to find what works best for them. It’s the exact same approach we use for our products.
Find something that is known to work in the past and present, do everything we can to understand it, then apply it and cultivate it to make the best product we can.
We would love for people to try and experience the results of our research so we can provide ancient medicine, and modern convivence.
