Magic in Honey

Magic mushrooms have long captivated the curiosity of adventurers seeking to unlock the mysteries of consciousness. For those looking to explore these mystical fungi in a unique and convenient way, magic mushroom honey offers an enticing option. In this brief guide, we’ll explore how to create your own batch of magic mushroom-infused honey.

Ingredients:

  1. Magic Mushrooms: Choose your preferred strain of magic mushrooms. Psilocybe cubensis varieties are commonly used for their potency and availability.

  2. Honey: Opt for high-quality, raw honey, preferably sourced from local beekeepers. The natural sweetness and viscosity of honey complement the earthy flavors of magic mushrooms.

  3. Lemon Juice (Optional): Lemon juice can help enhance the extraction process by increasing the acidity, which aids in the release of psilocybin from the mushrooms.

Steps:

  1. Prepare the Mushrooms: Begin by thoroughly cleaning the mushrooms to remove any dirt or debris. You can either use whole mushrooms or finely chop them to increase surface area for extraction.

  2. Decarboxylation (Optional): Some enthusiasts choose to decarboxylate the mushrooms before infusion to enhance potency. To do this, spread the chopped mushrooms on a baking sheet and bake them in the oven at a low temperature (around 200°F or 93°C) for about 20-30 minutes. This step activates the psychoactive compounds, making them more bioavailable.

  3. Combine Ingredients: In a saucepan or double boiler, gently heat the honey over low heat. Avoid overheating, as excessive heat can degrade the delicate compounds in both the honey and mushrooms. If using lemon juice, add it to the honey and stir gently.

  4. Infusion: Once the honey is warm and liquid, add the prepared mushrooms to the pot. Allow them to simmer in the honey for approximately 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. This process allows the psychoactive compounds to dissolve into the honey.

  5. Strain and Store: After simmering, remove the pot from the heat and let the mixture cool slightly. Using a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth, strain the honey to remove any remaining mushroom solids. Transfer the infused honey to a clean, airtight container for storage.

  6. Dosage and Consumption: Label your magic mushroom honey with the date of preparation and the strain used. Begin with a small dose (e.g., a teaspoon) to gauge its potency, as the effects can vary depending on factors such as mushroom strain and individual tolerance. Stir the honey into your favorite beverages, spread it on toast, or enjoy it straight from the spoon.
