Cooking With Magic Mushrooms

Does Cooking Affect the Potency of Magic Mushrooms?

One of the activities that help people bond with friends and family is cooking and eating together. Now, when you plan such an activity around magic mushrooms, it makes it even better as the atmosphere becomes more relaxed and people get to enjoy each other’s company even better.

While this debate has raged on over the years, the consensus of experts has been that basing the loss of potency during cooking on heat alone is inconclusive as other factors could be at play. More specifically, the rate at which psilocybin affects you (its potency) depends on the age of the mushroom, the level of hydration in your body, the amount of sleep you have had, and other substances that you have taken and whether or not you have eaten. In the end, the fact is that potency and the factors that affect it are subjective.

Combining Food Items and Ingredients

Another topic that doesn’t have a definite answer is what type of food combinations affect the potency of the mushroom. For the most part, foods with bolder and stronger flavors are used to hide the flavor of the mushroom. Cuisines made around magic mushrooms are new and evolving, therefore the use of stronger flavors to mask the flavor of the mushroom is important as shrooms can have a nasty smell or flavor sometimes.

When you rehydrate the mushrooms, it increases their volume and also makes them softer for the recipe. However, it doesn’t add to the potency, despite being a great way to cook the mushrooms. if the mushrooms are getting mixed with liquid food, soup, or stew, the psilocybin spreads throughout the food. The amount of psychoactive elements that gets drawn into the liquid food depends on how hot it is. The hotter the water, the more the psilocybin that gets drawn into the food.
