Just out of curiosity, why do those of you who grow mushrooms do it? Is it to have a near endless supply for self exploration? For profit? For fun? I figured this would be a good place to start this and see what people say. Maybe I'll repost it again sometime in a more public setting. Here seems like a good place to ask this for now.
My wife has some mild depression and anxiety issues, along with chronic migranes, so growing them will be mostly medicinal.
i would never grow for profit. its for my enjoyment and the enjoyment of others who are very close to me as a gifts.
i grow because it gives me something different and "sciency" to focus on outside of my daily life. i also like that is not instant gratification but has a nice ending to it. if you knew me in person you would not ever think this was my side hobby.
i also like the fact that i have in depth knowledge on not just shrooms but other things that are "taboo" in society, and occasionally when i let that knowledge slip out people are amazed at the things i know.
The expansion of my conscience and others. I love things that make me concentrate like motorcycles, chess, etc. When I do transfers my attention is focused. It's like I can block out all of the noise of my life and just be there in the moment, when I'm cultivating or tripping.
I started microdosing with LSD 2 years ago and had great results with it but also some side effects. So I decided to try shrooms but couldn't find any and after looking for them for about a year with no result I decided to grow them. Took me another year of lurking and learning to get to my first grow ( bottle tek) wich is now coming to its 4th flush. I've been wanting to grow gourmet mushrooms for about 9 years now and this week I'm expecting some cultures in the mail. So why do I grow mushrooms? The psilocybin ones for micro dosing ( I was paralyzed and they really help, LSD even more but it's to much ) and the gourmet ones for food. I like to learn new skills and study complex things so growing mushrooms feels like the right thing. I've also been gardening for the last 6 years so... for my it's like it was bound to happen.
I just enjoy growing mushrooms. I'll microdose once in a while but I hardly ever trip anymore. I come from a long line of farmer's so it's in my blood to grow shit. I would never sell mushrooms and I rarely give them away.
growing shrooms is rewarding in so many ways. it's nice to watch them grow, they're great for psychedelic experiences or microdoses, and they make a great gift for the right people. it's also a good hobby to spend some time on while locked down
