Schwifty Labs Magic Musgrooms Growing Guide

There is no better way to ensure a consistent source of psychedelics than to grow them yourself at home.

The process of growing Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms is incredibly rewarding and, if done right, can yield endless amounts of magic mushrooms for microdosing or self-discovery and development.

In this guide, we’ll cover the basics of growing Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms using the PF Tek method.

I will provide insight into how I optimize my growing environment to produce large amounts of mushrooms without having to buy expensive equipment or build complex setups.

This article is intended to serve as a primer for new mushroom pickers looking for the quickest and easiest way to get started.

What you will need to grow Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms at home

  • Magic Mushroom Spores – This is where you should buy your spores
  • Glasses – go for wide mouth glasses (½ pint or 1 pint)
  • Incubator – you can buy an incubator or make your own
  • A crop chamber – you can buy one or make your own
  • Substrate – vermiculite and brown rice flour
  • Filtered or Distilled Water – Tap water will contaminate your inoculum
  • Perlite – for water retention
  • Spray bottle – to keep the substrate moist
  • 70% Isopropyl Alcohol Cleaning Solution – 70 percent works better than 90 percent
  • Lighter – A Bic works, but I prefer to use a Zippo so I can keep it lit
  • Nitrile gloves – for sterility
  • Tinfoil
  • Measuring cup
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Pressure cooker or Instant Pot
  • Thermometer

Where can I buy Schwifty Labs magic mushroom spores?

Magic mushrooms growing guide

Everything on the above list can easily be found at your local grocery or hardware store – except for the magic mushroom spores themselves.

Spores are like the “seed” of a fungus. When exposed to the right conditions, they begin to multiply and form a mushroom body.

Magic mushrooms are illegal in most of the United States, Canada, and Europe—but not spore.

This is because mushroom spores do not contain any of the active psychedelic substances called psilocybin and psilocin.

For this reason, you can find companies selling Schwifty Labs magic mushroom spores all over the internet. They are usually sold in the form of spore syringes, but you can also find spore prints or liquid cultures.

Syringes are preferred because it is much easier to inoculate containers of substrate that you will be making later.

I have ordered my spores from many different places, but my favorites are Spores 101 (Canada and United States) and Spores Lab – (Canada only).

What are the best magic mushroom varieties for beginners?

  • Golden Teacher — The best strain for beginners
  • Penis Envy – the strongest strain
  • Koh Samui — Very large mushrooms
  • Orissa India — The second most powerful tribe
  • Cambodian — Excellent mildew resistance
  • Z-Strin — High yields and high efficiency

Step 1: Preparation of the substrate

Time frame – 30 minutes

The first step is to prepare the substrate for your mushrooms to feed and grow on. Fungi live inside their food. They stretch long filaments of mycelium through the substrate and secrete enzymes that break them down so they can absorb nutrients.

This stage involves creating a simple food source for the fungus to feed on as it develops a network of mycelium.

In the early stages of growth, fungi will compete with other organisms – such as bacteria and fungi.

Psilocybe cubensis is much stronger than mold and bacteria once established, but grows more slowly. If all three organisms are introduced to fresh substrate, the mold and bacteria will outcompete the Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms 10 times out of 10. They take over the substrate and prevent the magic fungus from growing.

So the trick is to completely sterilize the substrate so that the fungal spores have a complete monopoly on the food source. This will eliminate competition and allow your fungi to dominate the substrate without having to compete with mold or bacteria.

There are many different formulas for substrates to use, but the simplest is the PF Tek method. You can also use wild bird seed, rye grain and much more.

We’ll cover PF Tek because it’s easiest to succeed if you’re just starting out. It is the most resistant to fungi and bacteria and makes fruiting much easier later.

How to prepare substrate for PF Tek

First, PF Tek stands for Psylocybe Fanaticus – which was the pen name for the late Robert McPherson, who came up with the idea. Combines brown rice flour (food source) with vermiculite and water.

Fungi eat brown rice flour for food and the vermiculite serves as a structure for the growth of the mycelial network.

The end result is dense white “cakes” of mycelium that can later be placed directly into the brood chamber. Mushrooms will grow directly from these cakes.

Setting procedure:

Mix your ingredients together in a large bowl

The ratio of ingredients will be 2 parts vermiculite, 2 parts brown rice flour and 1 part water.

Start by adding vermiculite. You will need about 2 cups (500 ml) of vermiculite for 5 pint glasses.

Then add water and mix with vermiculite. It should be wet but without any pool of water at the bottom of the bowl.

The last step is to add the brown rice flour. Mix it well. It should form an even layer of flour on the wet vermiculite.

Fill Mason jars with substrate

Remember to fill each of the jars with the substrate you made, but leave about 3 cm (1 inch) from the top of the jar. Also fill this last part with dry vermiculite. The purpose of this is to prevent the jar lid seals from getting wet, which could lead to contamination.

Seal the jars with aluminum foil

Once the jars are full of substrate, add the lids and seal. I recommend placing the jar lids upside down so the rubber seal is facing up. This is because once you pressure cook them, the change in temperature will stick the lids to the jar, making them virtually impossible to remove later. Putting the lids on upside down helps prevent this.

Also wrap some tin foil over the top of the jars. This helps keep them sterile and prevents water from seeping into the jars when you pressure cook them.

Sterilize the jars

Now that the jars are fully filled with substrate and sealed, you need to sterilize them to prepare them for inoculation. This is done using a pressure cooker. Instant Pots also work great because they’re basically just a glorified pressure cooker.

In order to fully sterilize them, you need to run them for about 30 minutes after reaching sufficient pressure.

I also add a spacer to the bottom of the pressure cooker using some crumpled tin foil to lift the jars off the bottom of the cooker. This helps them distribute the heat more evenly and prevents the bottom of the glasses from burning.

Heat the pot to temperature (it will start to release steam) and then start the timer for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, turn off the heat source and let it cool down for a few hours.

Step 2: Inoculation

Magic mushrooms

Time frame – 30 minutes

This stage involves introducing the Schwifty Labs mushroom spores into the growing medium you just created for them. This process is called inoculation.

The idea is to add a small amount of spores to each jar without allowing any other impurities to compete with the magic sponge. There are millions, if not billions, of mold spores floating around in the ambient air at any given point. This is true no matter how clean your house may be. They float in from the outside air, travel on our skin and clothing, and are dragged inside by our pets after taking root in the yard.

If any of these spores got into the jar, they could overturn our mushrooms and contaminate our spawn jars. You will need to open the container for a while to inject the spores. It is during this step that contaminants have the opportunity to enter the container.

The trick to being successful at this stage is to keep the area as clean and sterile as possible:

  • Close the spare room or bathroom a few hours before vaccination
  • Clean the room with isopropyl alcohol and concentrate on the surface you will be working on
  • Before you begin, spray some aerosol disinfectant around the room
  • Wear gloves, a mask and put on new clothes
  • Shut off or seal all ventilation openings to prevent air circulation during vaccination
  • Create a sealed “storage box” to reduce exposure to ambient air

Of course, you don’t have to do all of these, but the more steps you take to keep the area clean, the more successful this step will be. You can’t be too clean at this stage.

Now we are ready to inoculate the jars, this is how it works:

Clean the area thoroughly

You should wipe your hands and the table you are working on with alcohol before inoculating each jar.

Take a sterilized jar and wipe it with alcohol as well.

Inject the spore portion of the syringe into the container

If using a spore syringe (recommended), remove it from its packaging and add a needle tip. Be very careful not to touch the tip.

Use a lighter to heat the metal tip of the syringe for a few seconds. This will serialize the top of the needle. Once cool, open your first container and inject about 2 CC of liquid into the syringe. Be sure to place the tip of the needle behind the first 2 or 3 cm of dry vermiculite so that it makes direct contact with the substrate.

Try to open the container just enough to get the syringe in, rather than removing the cap directly. This will help prevent contamination.

Once done, close the jar back up and cover the top with tin foil.

Rinse and repeat

You will need to repeat this process, one at a time, for each jar. Wipe your hands, table and glasses individually with alcohol each time.

Sterilize the lighter needle after each container to prevent cross-contamination from one container to another.

It’s tedious, but necessary if you want it to be successful.

Step 3: Incubation

Deadline – 1-2 weeks

Now that your substrate is inoculated with fungal spores, the goal is to create the ideal conditions for it to thrive. From there, just sit back and wait for it to be ready.

The ideal conditions for Psilocybe cubensis at this stage are as follows:

  • Humidity – high (>80%)
  • Temperature – 20-28 ºC (68-82 ºF)
  • Light – none
  • Air flow – low or none

The easiest way to do this is to build what is called an “incubator”.

There are many ways to build an incubator and you can even buy a professional one. In most cases, it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Just take an opaque container (paint bucket works well), fill it with inoculated jars and place it in a warm place somewhere in your house.

You only need to build an incubator if you don’t already have a place in your house that is dark and warm (but not hot) to keep the jars of substrate. Cabinets above the refrigerator are perfect for this.

Here’s a simple incubator design that anyone can build for less than $30:

  • Find two identical containers (not clear)
  • Fill the bottom with about 30% water
  • Place the aquarium heater in the bottom bucket and turn it on
  • Add the second bucket to the first
  • Place the jars in the second bucket and seal it

Fill your incubator with jars and place the lid on top. You will need to wait about 1 or 2 weeks for the jars to colonize with mycelium before you can proceed.

Step 3.2

Check the jars every few days. On the third or fourth day, you should start to see some white “threads” forming near the injection site. This is why it helps to inoculate the jars on the side of the glass so you can see the mycelium forming earlier.

Look for signs of contamination. This includes green or bluish growth, very fuzzy white growth (rather than fibrous), or a smooth, greasy appearance (bacteria).

If you find any contaminated jars, remove them from the incubator immediately. They could spread the contaminant to other jars if you leave them in the incubator.

You will know the container is complete when it is completely filled with white mycelium.

Step 4: Fruiting

Once your jars are fully colonized, the next step is to start fruiting. This includes creating an ideal environment for the mycelium to produce mushrooms – which are the reproductive organs for fungi.

The ideal conditions for the fetus are as follows:

  • Humidity – high (>80%)
  • Temperature – 10-20 ºC (50-68 ºF)
  • Light – low (indirect light)
  • Airflow – Medium

The best way to do this is to create what is called a “fertile chamber”.

Crop chambers can be purchased or made from household materials. The basic principle is to use a transparent container (to allow light to enter) that allows air to flow and maintains high humidity. There are many different philosophies surrounding amniotic chamber design. I’ve tried practically all of them and find that the simplest settings always have the best results.

When you try to make things too complicated, they tend to fail. As long as the above conditions are met, your mushrooms will start to grow. In fact, it is surprisingly easy to achieve these conditions by simply spraying the substrate with water to hydrate and placing the chamber in a location in your home that is out of direct sunlight.

Up until this point, your mycelium has lived in a completely sterile environment to prevent mold or bacteria from killing it.

Now your mycelium is strong and will be able to resist most fungal or bacterial invasions, so it no longer needs to be kept completely sterile.

However, it is still important to keep the spawning grounds clean in order to get as many mushrooms as possible. Eventually, they start to mold after they spend their energy making fungi.

Here’s how to build a simple brood chamber for PF Tek:

  • Take a clear container large enough to hold all of your substrate jars
  • Drill a few small holes in the top and sides of the container to encourage air flow
  • Wipe the entire container with isopropyl alcohol and wait a few minutes for the alcohol to evaporate
  • Fill the bottom 3 cm (1 inch) of the container with perlite
    Add filtered or distilled water until the perlite is moist but not soaked. If there is any excess water, drain it before proceeding
  • Place the mycelium in the container – you can either place the jars themselves with the lids removed, or remove the mycelium from the jar and place it on top of the jar lid at the bottom of the brood chamber
  • Check the mushrooms every day to see how they are doing. Remove the lid and use it to vent fresh air into the container. Using a spray bottle, spray the perlite with water (preferably distilled) to make sure it stays moist.

Try to avoid spraying the cakes directly. If water builds up on the cakes, it can lead to bacteria growth.

After a few days you should start to see little mushrooms forming on the side of the cake. Do not touch them, if you touch these little “pin heads” they may stop growing.

Let your mushrooms continue to grow until you see the veil on the bottom of the gill cap break – they are now ready to harvest.

Step 5: Harvesting and drying

When your mushrooms are ready to harvest, cut them at the base. They should break off easily without much effort.

Only harvest ready-made mushrooms. You may have to harvest several mushrooms each day until they are all done.

Now it is enough to dry the freshly harvested mushrooms by placing them on a dry paper towel for several days. You can also use a dryer, but make sure you use the lowest heat setting.

Your mushroom cakes will continue to produce mushrooms for a while. Each round of mush they produce is called a flush.

After 2 or 3 flushes, you may notice that the shrooms seem thinner or smaller. You can regenerate the cakes by submerging them in ice water for about 10 minutes and then placing them back in the fruit chamber.

If you see any signs of mold on any of your cakes, remove the infected cake immediately. A little mold won’t hurt, but if you leave it in the pantry, it will spread to all your cakes. Better to cut your losses and eliminate them altogether.

Eventually, all cakes lose their vitality and succumb to mold.

Troubleshooting tips and tricks

Magic mushrooms Troubleshooting tips and tricks

Mushrooms don’t have to be complicated to grow and for the most part they grow on their own. You don’t have to do much other than create the ideal conditions for them to thrive.

With that being said, there are issues that many growers (beginners and experts alike) will encounter along the way.

Here are some of the most common problems growers encounter and some solutions to try first.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to email – [email protected] Do the photos help much?

1. Mycelium does not grow in jars

You have inoculated the jars, but there is no sign of white, stringy mycelium formation.

There are several potential causes, here are some of the main issues and how to fix them:

  • Incubation temperature is too low or too high – place a thermometer in the incubator and make sure the temperature stays between 20 and 28 º C. Check it at the hottest part of the day and the lowest.
  • Contaminated substrates – sometimes contamination is hard to identify, but it will always stop fungal growth, so if you continue to have problems, it pays to redouble your sterilization efforts during the inoculation phase.
  • Faulty syringes with spores – sometimes the syringes you order are either contaminated or do not contain any spores. Always order your spore syringes from a reputable source.
  • You are not using enough spores when inoculating – try using more liquid when inoculating each jar, you may not be adding enough spores to lift into the substrate. I use about 2 CC.

2. My glasses are forming

The most common problem you will encounter when growing mushrooms is contaminated substrate. This is true no matter how experienced you are.

I’ve lost hundreds of jars to contamination during this phase, which is why I’m so adamant about being as extra as possible during the sterilization and vaccination phase. You really can’t be too clean here.

Use plenty of alcohol, build a storage box, or invest in a laminar flow hood to keep your area free of the mold spores that abound in the air.

You can also make self-sealing injection holes for jar lids, so you don’t have to open them to ambient air at any point. This is done using high temperature sealant from an automotive store and a nail.

Poke a few holes in the jar lids and add a drop of sealant. Allow to dry completely. You can then inject the syringe directly into these ports, which seal when pulled back – reducing the chance of contamination.

3. Pinheads form but do not grow into mushrooms

If you see small pinhead mushrooms forming but never seem to grow into a full mushroom, there are a few things you can do to correct this:

  • Check for humidity – low humidity can cause pin heads to break. Make sure it stays at or above 80% RH by keeping the perlite moist with a spray bottle
  • Pinheads touched – if you touch or move the pinheads will stop growing, avoid touching the mushroom cakes as much as possible
  • Too high or too low a temperature – if the growing conditions are not ideal, the mycelium will stop producing mushrooms. If this happens while some mushrooms are already growing, the mushrooms will kill them completely.
  • Poor airflow is a common cause of pinhead problems. Fungi breathe oxygen and release CO2. If there isn’t enough air flow, the mushrooms will stop producing mushrooms and go into survival mode to get over the poor oxygenation.

4. My BRF Cakes Keep Molding

All cakes will mold eventually – but you should be able to get at least 2 or 3 rinses out of them first.

If your pies get moldy before you can harvest the mushrooms, you may need to take extra steps to keep the area clean. Consider the location of your fruit chamber. Is it in a part of the house where there is a lot of ambient mold?

You may want to add some filtration to the chamber by adding polyfill or other filter material over the vents.

Using reverse osmosis or distilled water in a spray also helps. Alternatively, you can sterilize several glasses of water in a pressure cooker and use this water to spray the amniotic chamber.

The best books and resources on growing Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms

 

Growing mushrooms is a very broad topic. There is an endless supply of techniques for preparing substrates, building incubators, setting up fruit chambers and optimizing production. If I were to cover all of these methods, this post would be many thousands of words long.

While this resource is a great place to start and highlights the basic principles, if you really want to get into this hobby, I highly recommend you pick up one of these three books.

1. The Psilocybin Mushroom Bible: The Definitive Guide to Growing and Using Magic Mushrooms
(K. Mandrake)

If I could only recommend one book to a new mushroom picker, it would be this one. It is the size of a textbook and exceptionally comprehensive.

It mirrors the quality of the other book below by Paul Stamets, but is specific to growing magic mushrooms throughout, rather than branching out into growing techniques for other types of mushrooms as well.

This book highlights several beginner and advanced mushroom growing methods and offers plenty of expert tips and tricks, as well as solutions to various problems you may encounter at each stage of production.

2. Psilocybin, The Schwifty Labs Magic Mushroom Grower’s Guide
(O.N. Oeric and O.T. Oss)

This is the first book I have ever read on growing mushrooms. It is simple, concise and the techniques described are very effective.

It was written by Dennis & Terence McKenna, but published under their pseudonyms. Also it was published in 1976 after visiting the Amazon rainforest to study entheogenic plants and fungi. They learned how indigenous cultures cultivated mushrooms and took some samples back to the US where they perfected their process.

The McKennas are credited with bringing psychedelic production into the hands of the general public. It was the first time anyone could grow these mushrooms outside of their natural habitat. It is still considered canon on the topic of home growing.

3. Cultivation of gourmet and medicinal mushrooms
(Paul Stamets)

This book is by far the most comprehensive expert guide to growing medicinal mushrooms. It includes the cultivation of Psilocybe cubensis, as well as many other gourmet and medicinal species.

The author, Paul Stamets, is considered a leading expert on mushroom cultivation. He is the creator of Fungi Perfecti, the author of several well-known mushroom books, and a prolific speaker and educator on mushroom technology, cultivation and supplementation.

This article is just scratching the surface. We’ve covered the basics for the beginner mushroom grower, but it goes much deeper.

Like everything, growing mushrooms can be as simple or complex as you want them to be.

Trust me, I’ve tried every technique in the book, just to optimize the process. What I learned from this trial and error is that, for whatever reason, the simplest methods always produce the best results.

Despite spending thousands of dollars on expensive setups and custom grow chambers, they all couldn’t do better than a simple shotgun brood chamber – which is literally just a plastic tub with holes drilled in the side to allow air to flow (as shown above). ). And it is done!

These days I follow the KISS philosophy when it comes to growing mushrooms – “keep it simple, stupid”.

With that said, there are a few ways you can optimize yield using some more advanced methods without getting too complicated.

Six advanced cultivation techniques to optimize yields and reduce costsBooks and resources

1. Rye fry

The method above highlights the process for PF Tek — which uses brown rice flour, vermiculite and water. It is the easiest and most dangerous method for growing mushrooms. Any new grower should start with this method before moving on.

However, PF Tek has its limitations. It produces a lower yield than rye grain and it is not possible to maintain the mycelial phase.

Rye grain is more difficult to get right and more prone to contamination, but it provides much higher yields and allows you to preserve your mycelium without having to buy extra spore syringes for each batch.

When one jar of Rye Grain is complete, you can use it to inoculate 10 more jars – increasing your supply exponentially.

2. Monotube

The monovan is the simplest of the “advanced techniques”. It involves inoculation of the lower layer of the fetal chamber directly before fruiting.

Monotubs produce very high yields and are easy to produce and maintain.

3. Laminar flow cover

A hood with laminar flow is not a technique, but a piece of equipment. It works by blowing air through a HEPA filter to remove all particles. This tool is used during the inoculation phase to prevent contamination of your jars.

These can be very expensive, but a few years ago I picked one up for around $400 from Fungi Perfecti and it was a complete game changer for me. I noticed a dramatically reduced contamination rate in the grain jars.

4. Selection of the strain on the agar plate

This is definitely considered an advanced technique, but I find it really helps to select the strongest strains before inoculation. This helps to cultivate the mushrooms that are most resistant to contaminants, grow the fastest and get the most mushrooms. It also helps keep your supply going without having to buy more spores.

The process involves mixing the agar solution with water, sterilizing it, and then pouring the solution into Petri dishes.

A drop of spore syringe or spores collected from past cultures is placed on an agar plate and then into your incubator.

Within a few days you will see mycelium spreading across the surface of the agar.

Select the best looking sections – characterized by dense fibrous growth rather than fuzzy or sporadic threading. Cut a small portion of this growth from the plate and add it to a fresh agar Petri dish.

Once this thick mycelium covers most of the plate, you can cut it into smaller pieces in front of the laminar flow hood and add it directly to the rye grain jars.

5. Growing magic truffles

A magic truffle is different from a Schwifty Labs magic mushroom.

Truffles refer to the underground part of mushrooms. Some species of fungi, such as Tuber melanosporum, produce all their reproductive tissue underground. This is contrary to the classic fungus that you think of as growing above the surface of the soil.

In some countries, such as the Netherlands, only the underground parts of mushrooms are considered legal, so growers have come up with ways to force magic mushroom species to produce underground “mushrooms” rather than above-ground forms.

This is done by spawning the mushrooms in a container, rather than openly as with Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms. You can store the porridge in a jar with holes in the lid for air flow. Mushrooms will produce truffles if placed in these conditions rather than mushrooms.

Not all species will produce truffles, so it’s important to look for specific varieties if you want to grow this way. The best species for growing truffles are Psilocybe mexicana and Psilocybe tampanensis.

6. Spawn Bags

Another excellent method of production is spawning bags. They have the same function as the glasses, but later they facilitate fruiting. If you prefer, you can fertilize the mushrooms directly in the bags, or cut slits in the side to allow the mushrooms to grow out of the bag.

Spawning bags are an inexpensive way to produce very large batches of substrate. This is a method you often find in large growing operations operating in a mushroom greenhouse or other facility.

7. Self-healing injection ports

I touched on this briefly earlier in the post. The idea involves drilling holes in the lids of the jars and covering them with some kind of rubber gasket. Spore syringes can be injected directly through the substrate inoculation port and the rubber is immediately sealed after removal. This technique greatly reduces the chance of contamination during the vaccination phase.

FAQs

Frequently asked questions about mushrooms

1. Is it legal to grow Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms?

Growing or possessing magic mushrooms is illegal in most parts of the world.

The disputes are legal through a legal loophole because the law prohibits the active ingredients, psilocybin and psilocin, which are not contained in the disputes. However, mushroom fruiting bodies, as well as mushroom mycelium, are illegal.

Some parts of the world have already moved to decriminalize magic mushrooms, which includes cultivation.

Magic mushrooms have been decriminalized in places like Denver, Colorado, Vancouver, Canada and Oakland and Santa Cruz, California.

2. Can I grow Amanita muscaria mushrooms at home?

Amanita muscaria is another type of psychoactive mushroom that has nothing to do with psilocybin-containing mushrooms. It is much less psychedelic and more oneirogenic – meaning it induces dreams.

It is a dream substance that induces deeply bizarre dreams and dreamlike hallucinations.

Unfortunately, no one has yet been able to grow this mushroom reliably. It shares a highly complex relationship with various tree species and old growth forests. They are endophytic, meaning they live inside the roots of the host tree.

Currently, the only way to get this mushroom is to get it wild from temperate forests. They are most abundant in the fall (in most geographic locations), but can also be found sporadically during the spring and summer.

3. How long does it take to grow Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms?

From start to finish, growing magic mushrooms takes about 1 or 2 months depending on growing conditions, strain selection and techniques used. The fastest method is the PF Tek highlighted above.

Preparation of the substrate takes 24 hours (including the time needed for the substrate to cool down)
Mycelium colonization during incubation takes 2 weeks
Maturation on the mycelium takes 2-4 weeks

4. What temperature do I need to incubate magic mushrooms?

The optimum incubation temperature for most Psilocybe species is between 20 and 28ºC (68-82ºF). This will promote the fastest mycelium growth.

5. What temperature do I need to grow magic mushrooms?

The optimum fruiting temperature for mushrooms is 10 to 20ºC (50–68ºF). Some species may prefer warmer temperatures, others may prefer cooler temperatures.

Conclusion: Why you should grow your own mushrooms

The world is experiencing the third wave of psychedelics. The first wave occurred a long time ago when early civilizations began administering entheogenic plants and mushrooms to each other for divination and healing.

The second wave began (and ended) in the 1960s with the counterculture and the emergence of hippie culture.

We are now entering the third wave as more and more people are interested in using psychedelics for personal growth, spirituality and healing.

There’s no better way to get into the world of psychedelics than to cultivate your own. Schwifty Labs magic mushrooms are safe to grow and use and offer an exceptional array of existential and physical benefits.

By growing them ourselves, we can get closer to nature, gain a deeper understanding of this incredible psychedelic substance, and may even save us some money.
