The majority of people that are familiar with magic mushrooms know that there are several approaches to choose from when taking psilocybin. However, this does not mean that they are familiar with all of them. Subsequently, we have decided to explain the 5 most common approaches.
Method 1 - Eating Mushrooms/Truffles Raw
This method is considered to be the most popular way of ingesting magic mushrooms. In order for this method to be effective, you must chew the mushrooms thoroughly before swallowing. This is because you need to release the psilocybin from within the mushroom and let it mix with your saliva. Within 45 - 90 minutes, the psilocybin will mix with your bloodstream and you will gradually start feeling the effects of it. The downside of this method is the flavour of mushrooms and truffles. These have an unpleasant bitter flavour and tend to get stuck in between your teeth - leaving a nasty after taste. Nevertheless, this is the most efficient way to take them, if chewed properly.
Method 2 - Mushroom Tea
If you find the taste of raw mushrooms a big deterrent for taking them then this may be your best option. You can make a mushroom tea/brew to get rid of the bitter taste. In order to do this, you have to follow these steps:
Method 3 - Edibles
Psilocybin edibles are on the rise and seem to be quite the gastronomical accomplishment. This method may be more time consuming and difficult for beginners, but it is still a great approach to getting rid of the nasty taste and queasiness. When cooking with psilocybin, it is important that you do not add the mushrooms in a cooking stage involving a lot of heat as this will break down the psychoactive component. The best shout is to add them to a sauce or condiment after cooking as this can be enjoyed cold or warm. The disadvantage of this method is that not everyone enjoys cooking or wants to go through such a lengthy process just to take magic mushrooms. The advantage of it is that you can come up with endless culinary ideas for eating psilocybin that may actually be quite delicious!
Method 4 - Capsules
The capsule method is the most common one amongst those who wish to microdose. This approach is most suitable for those who want to experience some euphoria and creative boosts, without being lost in another realm. This method is easy to do at home - all you need is capsules and dried mushrooms. You can just grind the dry mushrooms and fill the capsules as much as you need. The advantage of this method is that you completely remove the nasty and bitter taste of the mushrooms.
Method 5 - Lemon Tek
The lemon tek method consists of adding lemons to water with ground magic mushrooms. The acidic content of the lemon will supposedly break down the psychoactive component and intensify your trip. On top of that, the acidity of the lemon will get rid of the nasty bitterness of the magic mushrooms, making it easier to take.
