Anyone who has consumed magic mushrooms can tell you that they don’t taste like magic at all; in fact, they pretty much taste like dirt or an equivalent of something bitter and earthy with a jerky-like chewy texture.
Fortunately, you can make it bearable, even delicious, according to some of our hardcore psychonauts and Blue Buddha Canada fans. You can use some simple, but tried-and-tested ways to prepare it so you can enjoy the magic of your magic mushrooms in Vancouver, British Columbia.
On today’s entry, we will be doing just that. Thus, here are some of the simplest ways to prepare and consume your stash, from the simplest to the more complicated.
Before anything else, do not forget to wash your shrooms. As you should know by now, even the finest magic mushroom strains in British Columbia can come from a cow patty.
So, even if you got yours from your most trusted friend or the dealer you’ve been dealing with since forever unless you make your own sterilized home grow, you are better off assuming it grew under a cow patty.
In any case, it’s easy to clean shrooms. You just have to run them under cold water and set them on a paper towel to dry. This bit on drying them is important because shrooms absorb water, so make sure to have those paper towels ready.
You can also use one of those vegetable and mushroom brushes to rub their dirt down if you have them if you don’t want to be bothered with the rinsing part.
With clean shrooms, you are now ready to cook—or not cook, totally depends on you.
No doubt, the easiest way to consume your shrooms is to chew them raw. A word of caution on this method: This is the most hardcore approach, giving you the most intense effects as early as 45 minutes in, but also the most unpleasant since you would need to chew it for the juices to come out and the magic to happen.
Another method is to grind it using a truffle grinder (a coffee bean or premium Cannabis grinder will do, too) into a paste before swallowing to get it done quickly but still experience the intensity you want to chase.
You may also put it in gel caps so you can pop one whenever you want to get into the psychedelic experience. This is recommended for those who want to microdose. And although this would require a bit of preparation, since you would need empty capsules, a capsule machine, and a grinder, we promise you the pay-off is good!
Yet another simple way to consume your shrooms is to make them into tea. This is one of the more effective ways to get rid of the taste if that’s your main beef. Make sure to boil the water separately from the shrooms since you don’t want to destroy the active compounds that make them magical. With your boiled water, add your crushed/ground shrooms and wait for it to close to simmer. Let your magic brew sit for 10 minutes and enjoy!
