Magic Mushrooms Grow Kit Tutorial

**Magic Mushroom Grow Kit Tutorial** last updated: JAN 2020   
 
With this pre-grown mycelium grow kit, you can grow your magic mushrooms in less than 2 weeks!   
 
Without any extra knowledge or ‘hard to get’ equipment, you can grow many harvests of Psilocybe Cubensis. Growing can’t get any easier than this!!
 
The mycelium is ‘pre-grown,’ which means that all the difficult work with fungi spores has been done in our lab. It is  not as simple as ‘plug and play,’ but as long as you follow our manual, you will have the best chance to succeed.  
 
The Magic Mushroom Grow Kit Tutorials are not in the package we send you; you can only find them via our website. 

4-step tutorial for all magic mushroom grow kits. 


Step 1 and 2 are a bit different depending if you’re growing an XOHM or a GOMAXMEGA.  Steps 3 & 4 are the same for all grow kits.

GO, MAX & MEGA

1 - Unboxing

STEP 1 – UNBOXING & SET UP (only for GO, MAX & MEGAs)

  • Take the magic mushroom grow kit, plastic bag and paperclip out of the box.
  • Remove the lid of the grow kit (store the lid properly).
  • Put the grow kit without the lid in the plastic bag.
  • Place the opening of the plastic bag underneath the bottom of the grow kit.
    (The micro-holes are pointing upwards and act as a ventilating system for the grow kit.)
  • Place the grow kit in an area with enough daylight, but not in direct sunlight.
  • The ideal room temperature for GO/MAX/MEGA is 21 º C – 31 º C.

 

Spraying: (once the grow kit is set up in the grow bag) 
Make sure you lightly spray water inside of the bag. Do not spray directly on the grow kit.
We recommend you do this every 2 days until the first pin heads appear. 

 

STEP 1 – UNBOXING & SET UP (only for X & OHM

  • Remove the grow kit lid, but save it for later. 
  • Take a clean fork and make holes all throughout the top layer
    (6 to 8 rows of holes is enough).   
    We make holes, so the grow kit can absorb water later.
  • Fill the grow kit with water (20 º C), until the edge. Close the grow kit with the lid, and let it soak for  12-24 hours.  
  • After soaking, remove the lid and carefully pour off the extra water.        
  • Put the grow kit inside the plastic bag. Close it by folding the top of the plastic bag.   
    Secure the top with the paperclips provided. Make sure your plastic bag is still straight up. 
  • Place the grow kit in an area with enough daylight, but not in direct sunlight.   
  • The ideal room temperature for X & OHM is between 18 and 28 º C.

 

Spraying: (once the grow kit is set up in the grow bag) 
Make sure you moisten the kit daily with a spray bottle (maximum 1-2 pumps).     
Do this until first the pinheads appear. 

2 - Pinheads

STEP 2 FIRST PINHEADS APPEAR (only for GO, MAX & MEGAs

  • The first pinheads will be visible in 1-3 weeks. 
  • From this moment, you can position the bag upright. Secure your plastic bag with the paper clips.  
     
    At this moment you also stop spraying. 
    The first magic mushroom harvest will be visible after 7-10 days.

STEP 2 – FIRST PINHEADS APPEAR (only for X & OHM)   

The first pinheads will be visible in 1 to 3 weeks. At this moment, you also stop spraying. Be patient though; it may take some time before pinheads appear. 

3 - Shrooms

STEP 3 – SHROOMS MATURING (only for OHM & X)  

  • Most pinheads have grown larger than 3 cm.
  • In this phase, leave the bag slightly open, so that the moisture inside the grow bag can evaporate a little. You can do this, by releasing your paper clips and letting the top of the bag drop down. 
  • Too much moisture is not good. If there is a lot of moisture in your grow bag, make sure to air out the bag by fanning it.

As soon as the first shrooms are visible, it takes about one week before the shrooms are fully developed.

4 - Harvest

4 – HARVEST (ALL KITS)

The moment of harvesting is important.

  • The best time is just before the skin underneath the caps starts to loosen up. 
  • If the spores under the caps are still closed, but threaten to burst, start harvesting. 
  • Grab the stem gently and turn the mushroom to the left and than to the right and gently pull. This way you can remove the mushroom as complete as possible. By gently pulling, you prevent your grow kit from damaging. This way you can reuse for 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th harvests. 

♻️ ADDITIONAL FLUSHES (for all kits)  
Good News! Our grow kits can produce several harvests. In fact, re-harvesting can be repeated 1 – 3 times.

After harvesting your first flush, clean the surface of the grow kits, by removing the old and not matured mushrooms. This gives the new mushrooms the ability to grow.

Mushrooms consist of about 90% water, so the grow kit needs a lot of new moisture for the next flush. Therefore:

  • Fill the grow kit with clean tap water.
  • Place the lid back on. Let the grow kit soak for 12-24 hours.
  • Open a corner of the lid, & drain the excess water.

From here you can follow the instructions from STEP 1.   

X & OHM: set bag up straight.

GO, MAX & MEGA: fold your bag horizontally with the micro-holes faced up.

🥢​ Consumption

Make sure you chew the shrooms very very well on an empty stomach.
That way all the active substances will be absorbed by your body.

Beginning trippers: Start with consuming 10 grams of fresh shrooms.

Advanced trippers: Start with consuming 20 grams of fresh shrooms.

Fresh Shroom Dosages

10 grams – light trip 
15 grams – medium trip
20/30 grams – strong trip
50 grams – heroic’ trip  

Dried Shroom Dosages

1/1.5 grams – light trip  
2.5 grams – medium trip 
3 grams – strong trip
5 grams – heroic’ trip

FAQ

The better question is: what makes magic mushrooms, magic? Magic mushrooms, also known as psilocybin mushrooms or shrooms, contain the hallucinogenic compound called psilocybin. When ingested, this compound leads you to hallucinate or have a “trip.” Your body breaks down the psilocybin and converts it to psilocin, a psychoactive compound which influences the serotonin levels in your brain, leading to euphoric, psychedelic experiences.

Microdosing mushrooms, in particular our fresh microdosing truffles are ready to go strips of six doses, with each dose consisting of 1 gram of fresh truffles. Microdosers often report increased levels of creativity, energy, focus, and relational skills. Whether it’s work, study, sports, or social meetings: many microdosers have reported that these activities are not hindered by the power of psilocybin microdosing. On the contrary.

A magic mushroom trip typically lasts 4-6 hours. Magic mushroom trips take about 30 minutes to 60 minutes to take effect. Sometimes it’ll take 2 hours for the effects to start. It all depends how much food you have consumed prior to ingesting your psilocybin mushrooms.

Shrooms last in your system for about 24-72 hours. The psychoactive compounds of magic mushrooms break down in your body relatively quickly. On average, it takes about 24 hours. For more regular magic mushroom trippers, it may take longer (about 72 hours). The psychoactive compounds that are present in your body when ingesting psilocybin mushrooms is psilocybin and psilocin. The half life of psilocybin is about 160 minutes and the half life of psilocin is 50 minutes. With a little math and calculation, psilocybin leaves the body after 13 hours and psilocin leaves the body after four hours.  

In drug tests, urine and blood tests will not detect psilocybin and psilocin since it’s leaves the body so quickly. However hair samples can detect these compounds from usages from about 4 weeks ago.   

Psilocybin and psilocin are not common compounds that drug tests look for however. If you’re worried about this, please research local policies and regulations concerning drug tests in your region. 

The pre-grown mycelium shroom kits take about 1-3 weeks from beginning to harvest. It depends variably on the climate. The warmer the temperatures, the faster the flush. In cooler temperatures, it can take longer.

As the great Terence McKenna once said “Only from astonishment.”

If you wanna know more on this, read up on our blog post “Can you overdose on magic truffles?” (pst…the answer is no, you can not die from shrooms) 

Web shops that are based in countries where it is legal to sell psilocybin products, like The Netherlands (where we are based) sell ready to eat fresh magic truffles.

Not to worry – shrooms cannot give you brain damage. 

  

However, shrooms can cause psychological distress. This is not due to the shrooms itself, but is triggered by a combination of things, like high dosages, not so ideal mindsets, and environment.   

When external factors are not ideal and safe, it may cause anxiety, panic, confusion, and intense fear. This is called a “bad trip.” Sometimes the feelings from this kind of trip can linger on even after. It’s good to have an accepting point of view when it comes to reflecting on your recent trips, both good and bad. Magic shrooms are meant for intense reflection, however be wise where and how you decide to trip. As this will completely affect the way you trip.

The effects of shrooms vary by person, dosage, and enviornment. They range from positive effects, neutral effects, and negative effects.  

The following are a general list of effects and do not include & define all shroom experiences: 

 

Positive Effects 

*Laughter 

*Euphoria 

*Spiritual insight  

*Self-reflection

*Feelings of wonder 

*Better flow of ideas (on creative and philosophical ordeals) 

 

Neutral Effects 

*Emotional sensitivity 

*Changes in time perception 

*Light sensitivity 

*Visual hallucinations (open and closed-eye) 

*Pupil Dilation 

*Lethargy 

 

Negative Effects  

*Intense fear

*Nausea 

*Anxiety 

*Confusion 

*Vertigo 

Fundamentally, magic  mushrooms (psilocybin) is not a cure for symptoms, illnesses or mental disorders. Rather it may give insightfulness and objective perspective for why a person is depress, therefore offering clearness for the cloudy mind.
