Named after my founder, the Lizard King, I'm favoured by psychonauts near and far as an entry-level mushroom, though I'm picking up popularity as a hiking mushroom. Which makes sense—I'm fun and energetic, with a chilled-out body high and strong visuals. Use me to get in touch with your inner self, connect with your environment, and explore the bush. If the vibe is right, we might even have a mystical experience together.
The Lizard King magic mushroom is for any psychonaut, seasoned or novice, that favours a powerful yet gentle psychedelic experience.
Long-term effects of a single large dose of psilocybin are clinically studied to:*
produce immediate, substantial, and sustained improvements in anxiety, depression, and addiction
increase global functional brain connectivity
awaken spirit, mood, creativity, confidence, and sense of well-being
promote calm alertness, mental stamina, and cognitive flexibility
improve learning and memory function
reduce mental and emotional fatigue
Raw: Eat them raw out of the bag. This way, you get all the tastes associated with mushrooms. At higher doses there can be some nausea involved.
Brew a tea: Put your desired dose in 1–1.5 cups of water and boil for 10 minutes. If you wish, you can add other delicious herbs to make it more palatable such as putting the mushrooms in a chai tea blend. Comes on faster than eating raw mushrooms and reportedly less nausea.
Lemon tek: Grind your desired dose into a powder and put in a small cup or bowl. Add the juice of 1–2 lemons until the mushrooms are covered in lemon juice. Let them sit for 15–20 minutes. Consume in its entirety. Comes on fastest, strongest, and reportedly significantly less nausea.
Doses best used for:
0-0.25g: A microdose; very subtle psychedelic effects; may experience mood enhancement, reduced anxiety, improved mental alertness and improve energy levels.
0.25-0.5g: A step up; more pronounced psychedelic effects; may experience altered coordination and motor control, altered vision and mood, increased energy, the giggles, revelatory thoughts, ideas, and pattern recognition.
0.5-1g: A psychoactive experience; pronounced and obvious psychedelic effects; may experience altered vision, emotions, and mood, could be a significant alteration of motor control, impaired coordination, super-human-music-making abilities, absurd humour, and a desire to engage oneself in artistic endeavours.
1g+: Everything above 1g is a bonafide psychedelic experience. 7g is Terrence Mckenna’s heroic dose. From here on in, anything is possible.
Note: Doses and effects vary from person to person. If you have never used mushrooms before, it’s best to start on the smallest dose possible for the desired effect and slowly increase from there.
You and your friends have planned a fun afternoon by the river.
The sun is out and it feels good to be outside. You bring your Lizard KIng magic mushrooms, feeling like this is the appropriate moment to share them. By the river, you all eat a few of caps and stems while talking away and enjoying the view. It doesn't take long for you all to feel spontaneous, joyful, and musical—like you've been summoned by your inner child.
