Home cultivation of magic mushrooms is a relatively new topic that has gained popularity over the last few years, so much so that there are now magic mushroom grow kits available for sale online and at specialty stores. This blog post will cover: what type of magic mushroom grow kit do you need to grow magic mushrooms? Where can I get a magic mushroom grow kit? Why should I grow magic mushrooms at home?
What is in a magic mushroom grow kit?
Most magic mushroom grow kits include a syringe, spores, grain bags for growing mushrooms, and instructions. The magic mushroom kit helps the magic mushrooms to grow well by providing them with the spore they need. The grow kits come in different sizes depending on how many you want to grow at a time.
The most important thing is to use the right kit for what type of mushroom you want to grow. Some kits are only for growing shiitake, while others will have instructions on how to grow Psilocybe Cubensis, which is the more common magic mushroom.
How Can I Get a Magic Mushroom Grow Kit?
There are many different places to get magic mushroom grow kits, but you should always make sure that what you buy is legal in your area before ordering one online or from another state or country. This will ensure that the kit can be delivered without any problems. The most common ways to obtain a grow kit are from a retailer, an online magic mushroom grow kit vendor or someone you know who has one. Below is a list of a couple of online retailers with some of the best grow kit selections.
The North Spore kits are some of the easiest ways to grow your own magic mushrooms and are available here https://northspore.com/pages/growkits?rfsn=5252486.9a8ac2

What Should I Expect When Growing Magic Mushrooms?
Growing magic mushrooms at home can be very rewarding if done properly and they will only need to be grown indoors with the right equipment. Water plays an integral part as humidity is a leading factor for their growth. As long as there is the appropriate humidity in the air, plenty of light, and the right temperature range it is likely that magic mushrooms will grow. The life cycle for a magic mushroom plant takes about two weeks but with no significant difference in time between indoors or outdoors.
Some kits include a grow bag, which contains the appropriate substrate, or material on which the magic mushrooms will grow, a spore syringe to add the spores from a safe distance from the substrate, heating mats and even jars for the final product. Please check your instructions closely for what other material may be necessary for magic mushroom growers.
Benefits Of Growing Magic Mushrooms At Home
If you’re looking to save money on your shroom intake, this might be the perfect option for you. You’ll have a steady and reliable supply of magic mushrooms and won’t need to wait on other people or worry about the quality of your shrooms- if they are grown correctly.
If you’re looking for a more potent experience, growing at home is also an excellent way to get that. The shrooms will be stronger because they’ve had time to grow and develop in your home.
Growing magic mushrooms also allows you the ability to use them for more than just a one-time experience. They can be cultivated like any other plant, so with some care and know-how, these fungi could last indefinitely!
Medicinal Benefits of Magic Mushrooms
People often grow magic mushrooms to harness their medicinal properties. Dr. James W. Jesso, author of “The True Light of Magical Mushrooms” says that the benefits are twofold:
First and foremost is their ability to produce deep insights into one’s own life. Second is their potential to positively affect those with mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, or addiction problems.
Jesso then goes on to explain that magic mushrooms have the potential to heal people by giving them a more profound understanding of themselves on an emotional and spiritual level.
Jesso continues to explain that magic mushrooms can heal you on an emotional and spiritual level, which is why people should grow them for themselves or their loved ones who have mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, or addiction problems in states that allow it.
Jesso concludes by quoting a passage about magic mushroom therapy from the book “Insilico Medicine” saying,
“The potential of psilocybin and other psychedelics to fully heal people is enormous: they can cause deep insights into one’s life on an emotional and spiritual level; change lifelong patterns of behavior that lead to addiction, anxiety, and depression; relieve symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder.”
Is It Legal to Grow Magic Mushrooms at Home?
Growing magic mushrooms at home is legal in some states. In the United States, growing magic mushrooms for personal use can be a risky endeavor; however, there is a growing groundswell of movement for the legalization of magic mushrooms that is starting at the city level in the United States.
The majority of the country has outlawed Psilocybin and Psilocin as well as any other substances that contain these compounds regardless if they are used recreationally or not. However, there are a few exceptions. For example, magic mushrooms in Denver, Colorado are currently legal.
In addition to the legalization of magic mushrooms for recreational use in Denver and other cities throughout the country, there is also a push among patients with mental illness who want magic mushroom therapy as an alternative to addictive pharmaceutical drugs that have side effects such as lethargy or depression. The move towards legalizing magic mushrooms for medical use is currently a hot topic in the United States that is moving to a more liberal policy of the growing, use, and possession of magic mushrooms.
Mushroom grow kits, however, are legal in every state as growing regular mushrooms, mushrooms without psilocybin, are legal everywhere. So whether you are legally growing magic mushrooms or shiitake mushrooms be sure to grab your mushroom grow kit today! Happy growing!
