At BudStars, we provide both premium magic mushrooms and premium education (the education part isn’t quite magical...but that’s okay). Our mushrooms are cultivated according to the most exacting standards, and all the varieties we offer contain active compounds like psilocybin and psilocin.
This page will guide you through the various types of magic mushrooms and what you can expect from them. If you’re ready to actually buy a psilocybin product, don’t worry — they’ll be plenty of opportunities along the way.
Magic Mushrooms 101
The plant kingdom can be a surprisingly wile place, and that’s especially true of its fungi families. More than 180 types of fungi contain powerful psychedelic compounds, notably psilocybin, that expand consciousness by promoting altered states. These fungi are lovingly called magic mushrooms.
Magic mushrooms are quite literally as old as dirt; they’ve been with humanity since its inception! Some researchers, like the late ethnobotanist Terence McKenna, have even theorized that psychedelic mushrooms were critical to our evolution as humans. This “stoned ape hypothesis” kind of makes sense when you consider how adept mushrooms are at promoting neuroplasticity and neurogenesis.
Indeed, the cultures of old prized magic shrooms. They were likely used by North African tribes as long as 9,000 years ago — judging by these tribes’ rock paintings. Relatively more recently, the ancient Aztecs partook of a mushroom they called teonanácatl to induce trance-like states.
All this to say: magic mushrooms have an established precedent of being safe and effective.
When it comes to most natural products, fresher is better, and psilocybin-containing mushrooms are no exception.
Raw psilocybin tends to kick and faster and stronger than dried psilocybin. That’s because the psilocybin compound itself gradually breaks down when exposed to heat and light. Fresh mushrooms also tend to have more psilocin, which may lead to a more visual-based experience.
Based on these benefits… we knew we had to offer a fresh option to our customers. When our order our raw magic mushrooms, you’ll be getting shrooms grown within the last 24 hours and shipped out immediately.
Just keep in mind that raw mushrooms may be stronger than dried ones. If you’re a novice psychonaut, be careful with your dose! Also note that some mushrooms, like Amanita muscaria, should not be eaten raw unless the dosing is perfect.
Want to satisfy your sweet tooth, quest for transcendence, and chocolate cravings...all at the same time?
If so, our psilocybin chocolates may be the perfect option for you. They pack a sizeable quantity of psilocybin into each bar of chocolate, delivering a powerful psychotropic experience in a delicious and nutritious package.
Our magic mushroom chocolates might just uplift your mood, too. Scientific research is finally beginning to show that psilocybin may reduce anxiety and depression naturally, validating what those who use shrooms have known for decades. Plus there’s the cacao component, which actually mimics “bliss molecules” like anandamide once ingested. Combining this combo with cannabis could lead to an even more uplifting experience.
The mind-altering effects of these chocolates can be felt for between 3-8 hours depending on the dose you took and your body’s natural sensitivity. So sit back, relax, and plan out a blissed-out day. Here’s to enjoying your time in quarantine!
For those of you who want to take a more measured approach to mushroom use, let us present another product option: magic mushroom capsules.
Just like with cannabis-infused capsules, psilocybin capsules may take longer to kick in than other delivery methods. One the other hand, your body’s absorption of active compounds could be boosted. Think of mushroom capsules as a time-released version of mother nature’s best.
One word of caution: if you have a sensitive stomach, ease into things with a low dose. You might even opt for a micro-dose friendly capsule product.
Mushrooms for Your Health?
Though mushrooms have been enjoyed for recreational purposes since time immemorial, they’re more than just another way to have fun. Science is showing that magic mushrooms have a wide variety of health benefits. They may alleviate stress, anxiety, OCD, depression, migraines, and more.
How is all this possible? Among many other things, mushrooms have been shown to have a restorative effect on our brain’s serotonin receptors.
The mental benefits are real, too. One fascinating study revealed that 58% of people who have a transcendent experience with mushrooms classify it among the most important moments of their life!
Psychedelic expert Dr. James Fadiman confirms. Speaking to Vice, he explains that even microdosing can exert subtle-but-real benefits: “...what many people are reporting is, at the end of the day, they say, ‘That was a really good day.’ You know, that kind of day when things kind of work.”
Here’s to more good days in the future — courtesy of a helping hand from mother nature and a magic mushroom or two.
