History of Psilocybin Tea
The use of psilocybin-containing mushrooms for their psychoactive effects can be traced back thousands of years, with indigenous cultures in Mesoamerica, such as the Aztecs and the Maya, incorporating them into their religious ceremonies and healing practices. In ancient rituals, psilocybin tea was believed to have been consumed.
Preparation & Consumption
It is easy to prepare psilocybin, which makes it a good option for people who dislike the texture and taste of raw mushrooms. Here is a basic recipe.
Dried psilocybin mushroom (usually 1-2g per person for mild experience).
Tea bag of choice (optional).
Lemon (optional) for enhanced effects
The dried mushrooms should be ground into powder.
Bring water to a boil and then let it cool down slightly so that it is just below boiling.
Add the mushroom powder (and tea bag if desired) to hot water.
Stir the mixture for 15 minutes.
If you used a tea bag, remove it. Strain the tea to get rid of any mushroom residue. Add a little lemon juice if you like.
Sip your psilocybin slowly over 20-30 minutes.
It is believed that consuming psilocybin as tea will offer a smoother start and reduce nausea, which can be a side effect when eating raw mushrooms.
The Psychedelic Experience
Effects of psilocybin begin to appear within 30 minutes or an hour. Users have reported a variety of experiences including altered perceptions and increased creativity. The experience can last from 4 to six hours depending on dose and individual sensitivity.
Recent scientific research shows that psilocybin can be used to treat various mental conditions such as depression and anxiety. It may also help with PTSD or addiction. Psilocybin has the ability to induce profound, mystical experiences that have been linked with positive long-term changes in behavior and mindset.
