Shroom edibles are the new way to enjoy the effects of magic mushrooms. As people continue to explore the benefits of shrooms, it is best to find ways to make them taste delectable. We all know that the undesirable taste of magic mushrooms can often be a turnoff. That’s why shroom edibles are the best way to get the best out of Psilocybin mushrooms.
Cooking with magic mushrooms takes creativity and a little science to achieve perfection. You can’t just dump everything in a pan and hope for the best. Patience, precision, and trial and error will aid you in this endeavour.
Why Cook Magic Mushrooms?
When you want an easy way to experience magic mushrooms, chop and eat them raw. But not everyone can manage the taste of it. Each person has preferences when taking in magic shrooms.
If potency is your issue, you can adequately weigh the dosage and yet have a delicious mouth-watering meal.
When you cook your shrooms, you can enjoy eating them without throwing up because of their taste. There are numerous recipes online, from satisfying your sweet tooth to making a tasty risotto.
What to Consider When Cooking with Shrooms?
Before baking those brownies, you must learn a few things when making your homemade Shroom edibles. These are ways to keep you safe and get the best experience when trying shrooms.
Using dried shrooms for cooking has different potency from using fresh ones. The dosages of each mushroom also differ. By familiarizing yourself with the type of magic mushroom and its potency, you can find which one will work for you.
However, the best and safest way to start is with a low dose if it’s your first time. Eventually, you can add more if you already know which dosage works. Plus, with a low dose of magic mushroom, you can share your meal with anyone who wants to give it a try.
How to Avoid an Upset Stomach
Newbies do one thing, cook everything without thinking about how it will sit in the stomach. Psilocybin has an adverse effect of nausea and vomiting, and it even gets intense when the dosage is high or when taken directly. So, if you are planning your first batch of edibles, consider these things.
Because not everyone can tolerate Psilocybin’s effects, it’s recommended to utilize components that won’t make you sick.
Some find that adding ginger, mint, and lemon to their meal can prevent nausea. Creating light foods is another way to keep your edibles tasty. You can bake cupcakes or chocolates or use fresh shrooms by adding them to your smoothie.
Start with simple recipes and learn what ingredients work for you.
But, Heat Destroys the Potency, Right?
One of the most controversial debates among shroom users is heat’s effect on the Psilocybin compound. Some believe that the compound degrades as it is exposed to extreme temperatures.
Heat may alter the potency of a mushroom, but it’s not as extreme as what some users think. In addition, there are also factors you have to consider, like the type of mushroom and its age.
There is no proven data that heat degrades the effect of a magic mushroom, but some like to believe in that, so they don’t dare cook their shrooms.
However, you can see many recipes involving cooking shrooms, and they all look delicious. Furthermore, many people have tried adding magic mushrooms to their food and still have the same effect that they were looking for when eating raw shrooms.
If you aren’t sure of it, you can always start by applying low heat to your recipes, or there are no-heat recipes you can use. If you notice that there is no change in the potency of your magic mushroom edibles, you can go on and try other recipes then.
You don’t have to follow the trend and take awful-tasting mushrooms directly. You can make them taste good and enjoy the experience. Plus, you must avoid certain external factors like stress to have a good trip. Creating an ideal experience is better than doing what others do.
