Previously, she was the site's senior home editor, covering all things decor- and bedding-related since 2015. When Pollan agrees to take psychedelic drugs, he presents himself as a stand-in for the skeptical reader; he is an LSD-virgin turned “psychonaut” for the purposes of journalistic and scientific inquiry. Embarking on the path of mushroom hunting is a captivating journey that commences with education and awareness.

This hobby can be both recreational and educational, as it allows individuals to explore nature, learn about different mushroom species, and appreciate the diverse ecosystems in which mushrooms thrive. Spending 10 years of his life and traveling all over the globe, the author delves into one of the greatest mysteries in known human history. In the introduction to this book, Paul Stamets relates the story of tripping on mushrooms with friends and predicting a disaster on a particular date a few weeks away and how, on that date upon driving past the drowned carcasses of cattle from recent torrential rains, it "shattered my concept of linear time.The book features over 40 step-by-step photographic instruction guides to each step of the process, including: sterilizing the equipment to produce mushrooms; how to build the containers used during home mushroom cultivation; safety measures for preventing contamination of the mushroom cultures; and a guide to consuming magic mushrooms safely and enjoyably. Autopsy findings are: marked gastro-intestinal edema, hemorrhagic gastro-enteritis, lymphoid tissue and lymph node hyperplasia, fatty degeneration of the heart and liver similar to that seen in carbon tetrachloride poisoning, tubular necrosis of the kidneys, and swollen brain with multiple hemorrhages and degenerative nerve cell damage. A shroom trip lasts from 4 to 5, and its primary active ingredient, psilocybin, is about 100 times less potent than LSD. When the doors of perception are thrust open and cognitive blind spots diminish, we see that we are an intimate part of an astonishingly smart process, fulfilling some kind of important function.

He is an advocate of the permaculture system of growing, and considers fungiculture a valuable but underutilized aspect of permaculture. The book is detailed and clearly written it also highlights some of the prejudice that he faced when deciding to study magic mushrooms which I thought was interesting we need more people like him. But he also assures that the placebo effect does not equate to meaninglessness: It may be the personalized key to understanding how certain psychosomatic ailments can potentially be alleviated without drugs. The front matter gives the reader some history of psychedelic mushrooms as well some insight into their effects. Over the years I have come to the conclusion that the persistent refusal to acknowledge natural intelligence is actually due to a conceptual blind spot.

Although the tag line for Drug Science is “the truth about drugs, free from political or commercial influence”, Nutt is not entirely without commercial interests.

There’s a lot to explore when it comes to this topic, from its intersections with race and cultural appropriation issues to the ways that psychedelics have helped connect people to their spirituality or more balanced mental health. He was also named one of Utne Reader's "50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World" in their November–December 2008 issue. From step-by-step guides on creating your own fungal haven, to insights into the lifecycle and ecology of these captivating organisms, our collection covers every facet of wild mushroom cultivation. But what I didn’t expect when I embarked on this journey was for it to result in what is surely the most personal book I’ve ever written.As the narrative progresses, Pollan provides his own “mental travelogue,” discussing his firsthand experience with consciousness-expanding psychedelics as a person who formerly had little to no spiritual inclinations.
