Mushrooms are an enticing portal into a fantastical world we are just starting to discover!

Mushrooms are complex and intriguing on many levels. We are just scratching the surface in our understanding of their role in the ecosystem and the many ways they benefit us.

There is so much to marvel at in the world of mushrooms.


Many people are familiar with some of the more common culinary mushrooms and medicinal mushrooms are coming to be better understood and appreciated: the reishi or mushroom of immortality prized in Asia for millennia are used for health benefits worldwide nowadays. There are hallucinogenic mushrooms that not only enhance your perceptions of your surroundings but also have many therapeutic benefits – both physiologically and psychologically. Fungi can also increase metabolic energy, and provide you with vitamins and minerals but also offer immune support and anti-inflammatory properties. They can also aid with cardiovascular health, blood pressurehypertension and can help with muscle movement, learning, and memory.

Let’s talk about the benefits of mushrooms

They are an excellent source of protein and fiber and are the perfect complement to a plant-based diet. Mushrooms help you to burn fat, regulate glucose levels as they are low in carbs, and contain a good amount of protein with no fat. They are sometimes thought of as plants but taxonomically are in a ‘queendom’ of their own called fungi

What are they made of!

The fibers, potassium, and vitamins in mushrooms contribute to cardiovascular health.

Potassium can help regulate blood pressure, and this may decrease the risk of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases.

For example, the stem of the shiitake mushrooms is a good source, choline in mushrooms can help with muscle movement, learning, and memory and play a role in transmitting nerve impulses.

Many types of mushrooms are edible, and most provide similar quantities of the same nutrition.

Magic mushrooms are wild or cultivated mushrooms that contain psilocybin, a naturally occurring psychoactive and hallucinogenic compound. Psilocybin is considered one of the most well-known psychedelics. Magic mushrooms are often prepared by drying and are eaten by being mixed into food or drinks, although some people eat freshly picked magic mushrooms.

Common Side Effects: Magic mushrooms are known to cause nausea, yawning, feeling relaxed or drowsy, introspective experience, nervousness, paranoia, panic, hallucinations, and psychosis. Magic mushrooms can be eaten, mixed with food, or brewed like tea for drinking. They can also be mixed with cannabis or tobacco and smoked. Liquid psilocybin is also available, which is the naturally occurring psychedelic drug found in liberty caps. The liquid is clear brown and comes in a small vial.

Magic mushrooms are hallucinogenic drugs, meaning they can cause you to see, hear, and feel sensations that seem real but are not. The effects of magic mushrooms, however, are highly variable and believed to be influenced by environmental factors.

Shrooms have a long history of being associated with spiritual experiences and self-discovery. Many believe that naturally occurring drugs like magic mushrooms, weed, and mescaline are sacred herbs that enable people to attain superior spiritual states. Others take magic mushrooms to experience a sense of euphoria, connection, and a distorted sense of time.

The psilocybin found in shrooms is converted to psilocin in the body and is believed to influence serotonin levels in the brain, leading to altered and unusual perceptions. The effects take 20 to 40 minutes to begin and can last up to 6 hours—the same amount of time it takes for psilocin to be metabolized and excreted.

What to look out for when you buy mushroom:

Fresh mushrooms should be firm, dry, and unbruised. Avoid mushrooms that appear slimy or withered.

Store mushrooms in the refrigerator. Do not wash or trim them until it is time to cook them. Store in paper, never in plastic.

Some mushrooms are poisonous or uptake toxins from their environment.

To avoid these dangers, only consume wild mushrooms identified to species by a reliable source.

The mushrooms that we work with:

We at COCORAU select the most incredible healthy and potent mushrooms to produce the highest benefits.

For our Sensual Supreme Powder, we are using Reishi

The king of medicinal mushrooms. Reishi may be able to do it all: aid in weight loss and keep the immune system in check. However, what makes this mushroom unique is its calming properties — all of which are thanks to the compound triterpene. These mood-boosting compounds may alleviate anxiety, ease depression, and encourage better sleep. But triterpene’s positive effect on the nervous system doesn’t stop there, sharpen focus, also.
