Mommy is trippin’, Vets Help Conservatives See The Light and Other Stories: Mushroom News Round-up April 15, 2022
Hey did you get your taxes in for Tax Day!? Ah, whatever, nothing matters anyway. Except for mushrooms, of course.
Here’s your stories for the week.
Vets Help Red See The Light
The weird thing about mushrooms is that just about everyone thinks they are a good thing. That is, except for the extreme conservatives. That’s changing, though, with the help of vets. This story tells about a vet got help with mushrooms and it’s helping conservative Utah see the benefits we all see in shrooms.
Michigan Morel finder
No one likes to reveal their morel locations. Assholes. But Michigan is a nice place and they have a map of large burn areas, which are prime for mushrooms to grow. Warms your heart. Check it out!
Not just magic, give flavor!
As we all know, mushrooms are having a moment, even having a year/years/decade. It isn’t just psychedelics, though. Cooking with mushrooms is becoming increasingly popular (I’ll just say for cultural trends- if the Japanese do it, it probably is gonna take off at some point). This article goes in depth on how to cook different varieties and why you would —
Mommy is Trippin’
Remember how I said Japanese culture is a sure bet for future trends? Well, add mothers to that, too, especially when it comes to the drug element. Let’s face it, being a stay-at-home parent sucks. You have to clean up shit all day (sometimes literally) and no one cares. No one appreciates you and no one is gonna say, “Oh you had a hard day, I’ll make dinner tonight and do laundry and dishes.” People just think you lay around all day. Well, these moms and dads are like f- it, that’s what we’ll do then. Parents are starting to take psychedelics to gain a different perspective on this weird life we choose to live.
Mushrooms come to the rescue, again.
Ever wonder what dairy farmers do with the waste whey from production? Yea, me either. But! it is a problem and Empire Medicinals in New York was like, hey we’ll take it and cultivate awesome mushrooms. And, of course it works, because mushrooms can do anything.
Mushrooms Talk and Other Stories: Mushroom News Round-Up April 8, 2022
Here are your stories this week!
Mushrooms Can Talk
Okay what the actual… this study says that mushrooms can talk to each other with up to 50 words. Scientists studied enoki, split gill, ghost and caterpillar fungus. The article has way too many “trippin'” references, which makes me worry about it’s authenticity, but it is the New York Post so…..(which doesn’t mean anything lol). Also, it’s reported elsewhere in better news sources— I just thought this reporting was particularly lame.
Death Cap Invades Idaho
You’d think that zombies were attacking by the way this quick article and similar articles on the subject are written. A death cap mushroom was found in a “established Boise neighborhood.” Hide your children. Hide your pets! Hide yourself. We are all gonna die in IDAHO!
Psilocybin Lowers Opioid Addiction Risk
An interesting twist on psilocybin being the cure-all for the world. People who used psilocybin at some point in theier lives are significantly less likely to be opioid addicts. It’s pretty awesome, actually, considered where we are with opioids in the land of the free.
Mushrooms Replace Other Foods
It seems like this article is a stating this is a big deal. Empire Medicinals moved into Cornell AgriTech’s new coworking space. This means, I guess, that a lot of research is going to be poured into using mushrooms in order to make them viable alternatives to pastas, breads, and meats. We’ve all seen Sci-Fi movies, Cornell, we know mushrooms are going to save us all when all the other food production goes to shit because of the way we treat the earth… is this your cute way of saying the time is now;)?
Search for Treasure! New Magic Mushroom in Australia
They found evidence of a new magic mushroom species in Australian Wilderness. Only thing is, scientists have never actually seen it. Perhaps it looks like many of the other 200 or so species of mushroom known to naturally produce psilocybin. Or perhaps…just perhaps…it’s a species that is a look-a-like of the great Steve Irwin returning to us all.
Magic-Mushroom Paralysic, Surfer Koa Smith on Shrooms and Other Stories: Mushroom News Round-Up April 1st, 2022
Ready for April?! Let’s get it.
Psilocybin Paralysis Wood Grow. Can’t..Move.. What?
Supposedly, magic-mushrooms that grow on wood can cause a sort of temporary paralysis. One guy was walking across the street and his legs stopped working so he dragged himself across it like a hungry zombie. Another person couldn’t even chew so even if he was a hungry zombie, he couldn’t do anything about it. Weird stuff here.
Mushrooms, Weed.. Don’t worry, it’s cool guys
This article goes into the aspects of microdosing and marijuana becoming part of wellness culture. And that is what makes it interesting. “After decades of living in an environment dominated solely by destructive, addictive substances like alcohol and nicotine, it’s no wonder Americans are considering their alternatives.” Cultural embrace of wellness drugs is comin’ quick, friends.
Koa Smith loves psychedelic mushrooms
You probably know Koa. The surfer with badass videos who goes everywhere around the world. Well, on one of the waves he fell, hit his board and slammed into some coral, giving him a severe concussion and short-term memory loss. Eventually, that caused depression to the point of suicidal tendencies. What helped him? You already know that answer when you look into your heart.
There are mushrooms all over Greenland. This guy was walking with some natives and was about to pick a mushroom when he was stopped and told about the mushroom monsters. Which sound awesome.
Mushrooms are from outer space
Mushroom-growing businesses are awesome. And this couple in East Tennessee are GROWING. Like 400-500 pounds a week. Their business is named ET Fungi or Extraterrestrial Fungi after the idea that mushrooms—as unique and wonderful as they are—came from outer space and couldn’t possibly be of earth-origin.
See ya next week!
