Sales of psychedelic fungi and growing kits are booming as retailers take advantage of a loophole in British law
The Aztecs called them “the flesh of the gods,” Siberian shamans used them to brighten their way to the spirit realm, and hippies and pioneers of the psychedelic movement employed them in the 1960s. However, magic mushrooms are now at the heart of a new – and legal – retail boom.
Instead of a toadstool, a truffle develops in the roots of a typical mushroom and has a larger amount of psilocybin by weight. It has the consistency of congealed muesli, tastes like somewhat bitter walnut, and creates a more physical and euphoric feeling.
