Out of these mushrooms and all their varieties have been an integral part of his cuisine down the centuries, all over the world. In ancient China mushrooms were used in alternative medicine more than 3000 years ago. They are still used to cure a number of ailments, along with problems related to the nerves, mind and psyche. The mushrooms used here in minute quantities have psychoactive and psychedelic properties. That is why ancient medicine men normally gave them to patients, who believed that they had gone through a spiritual trance which was life defining. These psychedelic trance inducing mushrooms are now called shrooms and even though they are illegal in many parts of the world, they are eaten by people who want a “fix”. Edible mushrooms are called mushrooms, while the poisonous varieties were called toadstools.

This book is a guide to psilocybin mushroom; how to develop it and use it safely. The areas that we focus give guidelines for cultivating and protecting the magic mushroom. We have made these directions as clear and simple as possible.We envision that if you are devotedly examining this book, it is most likely because you have taken dried mushrooms or you have been introduced to new ones. Our instructions are a mix of research into other people's strategies for development and techniques which we created, tried, and found helpful ourselves. Nothing we recommend is untried by us. We also tried to present a series of mushroom cultivation methods to the reader that are reasonably easy and effective to mitigate at least the number of problems and shortcomings that may occur. It is a technique that is at least fool-proof, if not fool resistant at each stage of the process, we have tried to avoid approaches that are complicated or pose too many alternatives for the grower. Instead, we decided to guide the beginner most easily and directly in a way imaginable from one end of the mushroom life cycle. The approaches we present are among those we consider the most effective and efficient simplest in our possession.

To most Americans, mushrooms are the brown lumps in the soup one uses to make a tuna casserole, but to a select few, mushrooms are the abundant yet often well-hidden delicacies of the forests. In spite of their rather dismal reputation, most wild mushrooms are both edible and delicious, when prepared properly. From the morel to the chanterelle and the prolific and aptly named chicken of the woods, mushrooms can easily be harvested and enjoyed, if you know where to look and what to look for. Bill Russell’s Field Guide to the Wild Mushrooms of Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic helps the reader learn just that—specifically for the often-neglected East Coast mushrooms of the United States and Canada. Suited to both the novice and the experienced mushroom hunter, this book helps the reader identify mushrooms with the use of illustrations, descriptions, and environmental observations. Russell’s fifty years of experience in hunting, studying, and teaching about wild mushrooms have been carefully distilled into this easy-to-use and well-designed guide. The book is divided into the four seasons, each with its unique mushroom offerings. Each mushroom section includes a detailed description, information about the mushroom’s biology, tips on where the mushroom is most likely to be found, and a short “nutshell” description for quick reference. The book also includes color photographs of each of the mushrooms described. Russell’s Field Guide to the Wild Mushrooms of Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic shows the reader not only how to identify the most common mushrooms found in the region but also how to avoid common copycats—and what to do with the mushrooms once they’re identified and harvested. With both color illustrations and insightful descriptions of one hundred of the area’s most common mushrooms, Field Guide is an indispensable reference for the curious hiker, the amateur biologist, or the adventurous chef.

As far as bad trips are concerned, it pays to start with micro doses, and then increase strength as tolerance increases -- it all really depends on what type of effect you want to have, and how much you can realistically handle. For possible negative interactions with other drugs, magic mushrooms should not be taken simultaneously with other psychoactive drugs, especially Adderall, Xanax, and Zoloft.

Here is a practical step-by-step guide to cultivating four species of psilocybin-containing mushrooms, indoors and outside. Anyone with a clean kitchen, some basic equipment, and a closet shelf or shady flowerbed will be able to grow a bumper crop. This Handbook also includes an introduction to mushroom biology, a guide for supplies, and advice on discreetly integrating psychedelic mushrooms into outdoor gardens. Hand-drawn illustrations and full-color and black-&-white photographs provide the reader with steps in the cultivation process and exact identification of desired species. The four species detailed include two species that have previously had very little coverage: Psilocybe mexicana (a tiny mushroom used for millennia by indigenous Mexican shamans) and Psilocybe azurescens (a newly described species native to the Pacific Northwest and easily grown outdoors on woodchips). This innovative book also offers a wealth of information about the use of psilocybin-containing mushrooms in both traditional and modern contexts. Contributing ethnobotanist Kathleen Harrison highlights the history, ritual and mythology of sacred Psilocybe mushrooms used in indigenous shamanic settings. The book’s authors offer insights into how these principles might be put into practice by the modern voyager, to provide, safe, healing and fruitful journeys.

Mycelium Running is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. That’s right: growing more mushrooms may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, and in this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you’ll find out how. The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called “mycelium”--the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium’s digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycoforestry and myco-gardening). In this comprehensive guide, you’ll find chapters detailing each of these four exciting branches of what Stamets has coined “mycorestoration,” as well as chapters on the medicinal and nutritional properties of mushrooms, inoculation methods, log and stump culture, and species selection for various environmental purposes. Heavily referenced and beautifully illustrated, this book is destined to be a classic reference for bemushroomed generations to come. From the Trade Paperback edition.
