hallucinogenic tea

Psilocybe semilanceata, commonly known as the liberty cap, is a psilocybin or “magic mushroom" that contains the psychoactive compounds psilocybin, psilocin and baeocystin. They ar the most common type of ‘magic mushroom’ in the UK.

It is important to know that different types of ‘magic mushroom’ will differ in how strong and how toxic they are.

For example, the amanita muscaria or ‘fly agaric’ mushroom is stronger than the traditional ‘liberty cap’ mushroom and eating this raw could kill you. It’ll definitely make you vomit like mad.
People don’t tend to eat fly agaric mushrooms raw as they can make you feel really sick and also because there is a greater risk of poisoning and death from this family of mushrooms unlike the Liberty Caps.

After picking, Liberty Caps are often eaten raw or are dried out and stored. Some people use the dried mushrooms to make tea. Drying reduces the weight of the fungi but not their potency.


Here are the main effects of eating Liberty Caps:
Colours, sounds and objects appear distorted.
Your sense of time and movement can speed up – or slow down.
You may feel disoriented, tired or sick – and some users can get stomach pains or diarrhoea.
You may hallucinations good or bad things.
You may hurt yourself and not realise to the extent of the injury.

An ode to the flora queen, petals glistening with dew drops and roots sinking deep to earth’s magical center. Her magic is creeping vines and nightshade, cleansing sage and herbal tonics. She dances on deep moss on the moonless nights, tall pines swaying hypnotically to keep in step. A sorceress of balanced heart, her power lives both in sweet dandelion puffed wishes and tricky hemlock teas. She sails on giant waterlilies, and tells secrets to succulents. The scent of fresh crushed lavender and spicy basil seems to cling to her, lulling you into a false sense of security; even the most beautiful of roses have thorns, after all. Her elixirs are highly coveted; everything from hallucinogenic teas to love potions all dwell in this wise woman’s lexicon. She lives in the lushest green and to find her, one must know the language of the forest lest they find themselves insnared in an emerald labyrinth. She is verdant’s embodiment, life’s first spark; remember that seeds hold her secrets. Should you need her, all one must do is befriend the morning marigolds and kiss the autumn oak trees.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,“ Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”
