The Power Up

The Power Up

From Mario Brothers to Alice in Wonderland, this is the classic, colourful toadstool that ends up in games and illustrations.

Mildly psychedelic (DO NOT THINK THAT THAT'S ME SAYING TO GO EAT ONE!) and mildly poisonous, those two things are not unrelated by the way, it also has culinary purposes. Prepared correctly, most of the toxins can be removed. Siberian Shamen would use this (toxins still intact) to reach their trance-like state and regular folks would drink their urine to get a buzz. Sounds like fun! The added benefit of the urine method is that you can avoid some of the nastier side effects of the mushroom like sweating and twitching. Sounds like even more fun!

Since I don't cook, I'm not about to try it in any meals and I'm not too into the poisonous/psychedelic part either. With or without the urine.

I'm cringing at what strange searches are going to lead here once this page gets crawled.

Hey, people looking to get stoned on shaman mushroom urine, do your drug research on a more rigorous site. I'm just a photographer.

But, I'm more than happy to post a picture of it here.
