There has recently been a surge in people considering microdosing psychedelics. Minimal dosage is supposed to supply you with energy, creativity, and positivity – all of those things that we could use more of in a day. Magic mushrooms have also been found to have considerable positive effects on those who suffer from depression and anxiety.
Whether you are choosing to consistently microdose or are looking for one significant day of adventure, there is still the hurdle of the most effective method of ingestion. While swallowing whole mushrooms is highly effective, that taste can be overbearing for some. There are many recipes and related methods of disguising the strong flavour. Use spices to cover the taste of mushrooms and making it an enjoyable experience. Incorporating ground dried mushrooms with strong flavours such as salt and pepper will help to hide the unsavoury taste while accentuating the positive earthy qualities.
Choose to use a magic shroom spice on any of your favourite foods. It can be used on a juicy piece of steak or a big bowl of pasta, but be sure to add the spice mix to finished products after cooking only to assure the best results and limit any reduction in potency. When storing, be sure to keep it in a dark place to help maintain the potency as well.
- 3 parts ground magic mushrooms
- 1 part table salt
- 1 part ground black pepper
The most efficient way to grind your mushrooms is to use a coffee grinder to assure the finest grind and most consistent mix possible. For a single dose, we would recommend 2-3 grams of shrooms mixed with a tablespoon each of pepper and salt. Don’t forget, different kinds of psychedelic mushrooms have varied concentrations of psilocybin and psilocin so it’s important to know your species, explore different psychedelic mushroom strains and the related effects. Try to add some of your own favourite dried herbs and spices to create your own brand of magic spice mix. Here are a few options that would work quite well:
- Garlic Powder
- Ancho Chili Pepper
- Onion Powder
