Magic mushrooms, also known as Psilocybe Cubensis, are starting to be the talk of the town, and their popularity has taken a big jump. However, having access to it will be difficult if the person who wants to get his hands on them lives in a country that prohibits shrooms. Buying will be a challenge if the shroomer does not know a reliable source that can supply him for the period of his needs. This situation is where the storing of magic mushrooms becomes necessary because procuring them now and then is not going to be a problem.
What does Psilocybe Cubensis do?
Psilocybe Cubensis or magic mushrooms contain a psychoactive chemical called Psilocybin that can cause hallucinations. It is an ingredient that can alter the senses of a person who ingests it. Once the mushrooms enter the body, the body breaks them down into an active compound called psilocin. This compound makes its way to the person’s brain, intersecting with the brain’s serotonin. Serotonin acts as a neurotransmitter and sends messages to system cells for them to communicate with each other.
Because of the psilocin compound that stimulates the serotonin in the brain, the mind experiences hallucinations. These hallucinations include out of the world experiences that are far and impossible in reality. Some users may even experience a spiritual awakening and a deep connection with nature. However, the effects are not always positive. Some can experience things that would make them wish they never tried shrooms, such as feeling extreme fear for safety or paranoia.
How to identify Psilocybe Cubensis
One identifying factor of magic mushrooms is their bruising. The bruise can show that the mushrooms contain the compound element Psilocybin. Also, the bluish bruising of mushrooms can indicate an unstable degradation of the Psilocybin that can only mean one thing. The more blue bruises the mushrooms have, the more it is losing its potency. Panaeolus cyanescens is a highly potent shroom; for example, it means storing them is very important.
How to store magic mushrooms
The common enemy of any material, food, or object that most people store is always moisture because it can ruin almost anything. It goes the same with mushrooms. Mushroom users must store their stash in a place where no dampness can reach them.
When planning to store mushrooms, acquiring a large amount of them is the first step. Buying from a trusted trader or growing some shrooms in the backyard are some of the best options to acquire magic mushrooms. Shroomers can even grow these mushrooms inside the house, so there is no hassle in taking care of them. After cultivating and harvesting magic mushrooms, there are two essential things to do when storing. These are:
Drying the Mushroom
Although mushrooms are also possible to store without drying, their shelf-life is shorter compared to the dried ones. The potency of the mushrooms is also affected when shroomers try to preserve them as they are. Drying cannot only make them last longer, but it can also help keep the psychoactive drug psilocybin it contains longer.
Finding the Perfect Container
Once all the mushrooms are all good and dry, an airtight container must be ready. Jars or plastic containers that are securely tight are the best choices. These airtight containers will keep moisture from touching the dried mushrooms so that they will not spoil.
Shroomers who have a high consumption rate of mushrooms or those in the business of selling magic mushrooms should learn how to store them properly. This strategy can help them save and earn more money from their business or save them time taking a drive to buy shrooms from far away places.
