We´re lucky to live in an age of modern medicine. When we get ill, we put our trust in doctors, psychologists, and pharmaceuticals, to sort us out. But our ancestors’ way of treating illness, was a totally different story.

Eating magic mushrooms alone, in dried or fresh form, is not the most pleasant experience, and if you think about it, we’d never eat “culinary” mushrooms in this way, so no reason to do it with magic ones. There are so many stories people gagging and choking to get those little guys down, that we decided it was time to show you how to eliminate the suffering from eating magic mushrooms by preparing them in pleasant and delicious ways.
In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at “Set and Setting”, an expression which was coined by Timothy Leary in 1964. In his book, The Psychedelic Explorer's Guide, he talks about the importance of carefully preparing yourself, and your environment before setting out on any psychedelic adventure.
To the indigenous people of Central America though, this was old news. For over 3500 years, they’ve been using important “set and setting” rituals.
Let us tell you a little more about set and setting and how it can truly enhance the pleasure and safety of any mushroom trip.

We’re living in an exciting new age when it comes to psychedelics, research is thriving and we’re learning so much about their potential health benefits. One of the most surprising things studies are revealing, is that the dreaded “bad trip” might not be so bad after all.
A trip sitter is a person who stays sober while others are under the influence of some form of hallucinogen. The trip sitter is there to help and ensure the safety of the users during there trip. A sitter can help you when you have a bad trip or just comfort those who are tripping by his calming presence.
Here at Magic Mushrooms Shop, we sure do love mushrooms, and we’re not just talking about the psychoactive ones.
Over time, our relationship with psychedelic mushrooms has inspired deep respect and curiosity for the entire range of species. We all know that mushrooms can be tasty and trippy, but did you know that they can dramatically improve your physical health?
In these strange times of global pandemics, having a strong immune system is one of the best ways to stay safe. Therefore, we are very happy to present to you our new range of organic mushroom supplements.
