Ultimate Shrooms Guide
World of Shrooms
Understanding the world of shrooms can be daunting for anyone.
Majority what we read online is either riddled with people claiming to see and feel unbelievable things or see people harshly criticize it. The truth is, there is a lot of research being done to explore the benefits of psilocybin.
Much like cannabis, psilocybin (otherwise known as magic mushrooms, shroom) exist and grow naturally outdoors in various parts of the world. It has a rich history that touches nearly every part of the world with its own stories, and experience passed on through the generations.
We think that it’s important to fully understand the different types of mushrooms and it’s potential effects on the mind and body. Researchers actively look into psilocybin as a source of understanding it’s complex nature. They hope to reveal the benefits that can replace, rehabilitate, and provide more nature solutions to traditional synthetic drugs and medications that can have serious side effects.
Here is a breakdown down of the different types of strains of psilocybin mushrooms and it’s researched effects.
Psilocybin Mushroom Anatomy
Mushrooms are a network of fungal organisms that span its roots deep underground and produce budding stems with caps that we all recognize and know.
Mycelium is a network of interconnected filaments that connect to other mushrooms and organisms. They basically make a very complex nervous system that allows them to communicate, sense and react to danger, and spread out. It is one of the oldest organisms and continues to be a vital part of our ecosystems.
What we typically see above ground are the:

Not every species has every part of the mushroom these features.
The Power Behind Psilocybin
When looking into what specifically makes psilocybin mushrooms effective, we look to science to explain it’s reasoning. Here are a few ingredients used in products now days that are designed to help people in various mental and spiritual ways.
Psilocybin / Psilocin
Psilocybin and Psilocin are medical terms for the active chemical that are psychoactive. Meaning, they create visuals and other mind altering events to occur depending on the dosage.
Both psilocybin and psilocin are equally psychoactive, but its actually psilocin that is largely responsible for the high mushrooms cause.
This is because the main method of taking mushrooms is oral ingestion, and any psilocybin that is ingested is broken down to psilocin in the digestive track by the enzyme alkaline phosphate. We know that psilocybin is just as psychoactive, as scientific research often uses other methods of dosing that bypass the digestive tract, maintaining the structure of psilocybin within the body but still having the same effect.
Lion's Main Root
Research has found that lion’s mane may protect against dementia, reduce mild symptoms of anxiety and depression and help repair nerve damage.
It also has strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immune-boosting abilities and been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, ulcers and diabetes.
It is also found to relieve mild symptoms of depression and anxiety, speed recover form nervous system injuries.
There are no recorded side effects and this naturally growing root is being used in many health and consumable products like coffee. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see this being used in nearly all health related products.
Most commonly grown in evergreen shrubs of Asia and Africa, this root is known to be commonly used for stress relief. Ashwagandha root contains chemicals that help reduce swelling, lower blood pressure, calm the brain, and benefits the immune system.
Medically, it is known to a form of an adaptogen which is used to relax the brain and its calming properties have been documented for hundreds of years.
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.
