Publisher's Summary

Cultivate Magic Mushrooms in the Comfort of Your Home

Are you....

  • interested in alternative healing methods?
  • looking for culinary inspiration?
  • eager to cultivate healing mushrooms?

Then read on!

Mushrooms have been a part of traditional medicine in many cultures. Healing mushrooms were especially well known in China and Mesoamerica. 

In the United States, research into magic mushrooms was curbed by increasingly strict drug laws - even though psilocybin, a substance naturally occurring in many mushrooms, has been proven to improve mental health in people with depression and PTSD, it was declared an illegal drug. This is why magic mushrooms can’t be a part of mainstream medicine. 

However, you can cultivate magic mushrooms by yourself. Don’t worry if you don’t have gardening skills or experience - mushrooms are not plants and their cultivation is different from normal gardening. All you need is the knowledge you’ll find in this book. 

This introduction to growing magic mushrooms explains everything in a beginner-friendly way so you'll avoid mistakes and successfully cultivate magic mushrooms to heal your mind. Of course, you can also use the techniques described here to grow any mushrooms you like - many are delicious and have numerous health benefits. 

Here’s what you’ll find in this book:

  • A detailed step-by-step instruction to planting mushrooms and taking care of them
  • Culinary tips and recipes with mushrooms 
  • A guide to the medical benefits of mushrooms 
  • Step-by-step strategies to use mushrooms for weight loss, blood sugar management, and other medical purposes
  • And much more!

It’s true that mushrooms can be dangerous if you’re not sure which species you’re consuming. However, the knowledge you’ll find in this book will help you avoid poisonous mushrooms and only cultivate the good ones! 

Grow your own magic mushrooms even if you’ve never grown anything before!

Good place to start

This is the first book I've bought on the subject, great introduction, very complete instructions on how to grow. I do feel that I need to pick up a more advanced book after listening this one to get more into the science of the subject. This book is a sort of quick intro to growing or 'the least you need to know' to grow.

great introduction and guide

with the very basics it gives you an idea of what is involved in growing mushrooms. The methods used will not change over time, so it's a great reference. This is the book to follow if your just starting out and not wanting to invest anything more than time.

Good intro book

A guide to the techniques and apparatus for propagating and growing mushrooms, specifically those containing psilocybin. I cannot speak from practical experience but this guide is easy to understand and is well supplied information which would enable anyone with the tenacity and inclination to achieve success.

just....meh

the book started well enough however touched very little on the actual cultivation of mushrooms aside from a very very generalized overview. the author then began moving further and further towards the metaphysical and spiritual and towards general health practices such as calorie cycling and basic diet and other subjects that were far outside of the scope of the titled literature which felt more like rambling. not a terrible book by any means, however of very little value if you're actually interested in mushroom cultivation.

I think he could have been tripping while writing!

All I wanted was some more knowledge on psilocybin + the know how to grow em.
The narator was excellent!
The text was all over the place!
I'm intelligent, but the author was excessively verbose + deep, as if on a trip himself. I wasn't looking to take a vocabulary course. That being said, he did @ times use the incorrect word.
I chose the book for it's length + the other reviews.
But it was not for me!

Small but awesome.

Really, i'm very impress to listen this book. The book covers how to troubleshoot the issues surrounding everything from sterilization and substrate jars to drying your final harvest. How to store your mushrooms to extend their life and potency; and how to powder your dried harvest for the microdosing enthusiast. I exceedingly suggest this book for everyone......

Great book to inspire mushroom cultivation

This book was anything but difficult to peruse, educational and had commonsense clarifications. I delighted in this book without a doubt and would prescribe it to any scientist inspired by psilocybin development. The creators ensure that you are rationally and physically well-prepared before starting your activity. You have ensured achievement on the off chance that you listen the entire thing from beginning to end.

One of the best books available on that topic

Jack Bertolas provides a good overall look at the processes of growing popular as well as some unusual mushrooms both indoors and out. The different mushroom types and goes through the process of growing each specific type. Would have loved to see what a bag of spores should look like when you order it online.

A foraging staple.

Ive only been mushrooming for a season and this book has helped me so much in the field. If I see a magic Mushrooms I don't recognize, I stop and take out my book and can usually find out quick whether or not to waste my time taking it home.

Very good!!!!

This is a very good book, well audio, and a bit quirky. Started using over a decade ago, there are now a lot more guides out there but this is still my favorite. And nicely complements Mushrooms Demystified for a deeper study.
