Grow your own mushrooms at home
Psychedelic mushroom kits are an easy way to experience the cultivation of psilocybin magic mushrooms, or “psychedelic truffles”. These kits contain a substrate that has been inoculated with fully active 100% mycelium. Mycelium is a network of fungal threads that grows and produces psilocybin, the psychoactive substance in psychedelic mushrooms.
These kits come in a variety of shapes and sizes. For example, the Virgenu kit is based on the PF tek and includes everything you need to take your spores from colonization to fruiting. It costs $159 and is rated 4.2 stars on Amazon. Another option is the McKennaii grow kit, which features a cubensis strain with high psilocybin and psilocin levels, perfect for enjoying a spiritual connection to the universe.
Mushrooms typically grow on logs in the wild, Li explains, so these kits are designed to emulate that environment at home. They also come in a prettier package than some of the other options on the market, featuring trendy fonts and artwork.
The kits are available in Utah through the Divine Assembly’s Shroomiversity workshops, but the church’s co-founder, Steve Urquhart, said he hoped to eventually offer them online as well. He and other church members have faced questions about whether their kits could be considered drug paraphernalia, but Urquhart has argued that if someone uses the spores to cultivate a mushroom only for religious purposes, it shouldn’t be illegal. The DEA has not yet commented on the issue. Magic mushroom kits
