Don't inject mushroom tea guys
    #27144971 - 01/13/21 04:26 AM (13 days, 15 hours ago)

Saw this on reddit and it was so crazy I had to bring it to mush central. Basically a man IV'd mushroom tea and ended up having cubensis mycelium growing in his blood :eek:

Article here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1qh7mly5usyamj8/Giancola_2020_A%20%E2%80%9Ctrip%E2%80%9D%20to%20the%20ICU%20-%20intravenous%20injection%20of%20psilocybin.pdf?dl=0

"Here, we describe a case of a 30-year-old man who injected psilocybin intravenously resulting in an extended stay in the intensive care unit (ICU) due multiple-system organ failure

Mr. X was a 30-year-old man with bipolar disorder type I and a history of intravenous drug use admitted to the hospital after being brought to the emergency department (ED) by family concerned that he was confused

He had reportedly been researching ways to self-treat his opioid dependence and depression

In his reading he encountered reports of therapeutic effects of micro-dosing LSD and hallucinogenic psilocybin mushrooms prompting him to inject what he had named “mushroom tea” – psilocybin mushrooms boiled down in water. He then “filtered” this substance by drawing it through a cotton swab before directly injecting the solution intravenously. Over the next several days, he developed lethargy, jaundice, diarrhea, nausea, and hematemesis before he was found by family and taken to the ED

He was grossly confused and unable to meaningfully participate in an interview

Laboratory studies revealed thrombocytopenia, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, hypochloremia, hypocalcemia, acute renal insufficiency, and acute liver injury. Cardiac workup revealed elevated cardiac enzymes and his electrocardiogram was remarkable for sinus tachycardia and early repolarization. Mr. X was then transferred to the ICU for evidence of multi-organ failure and he was started on intravenous fluids, multiple vasopressors, broad spectrum antibiotics, and anti-fungal medications. His hospital course was further complicated by septic shock and acute respiratory failure requiring intubation on hospital day two and disseminated intravascular coagulation requiring plasmapheresis. Cultures confirmed bacteremia (ultimately cultured as Brevibacillus) and fungemia (ultimately cultured as Psilocybe cubensis – i.e. the species of mushroom he had injected was now growing in his blood). He was treated for a total of 22 days in the hospital with eight of them in the ICU

How the hell was "boiled down" mushroom tea able to survive the heat and propagate in his blood stream? Crazy crazy

So then, who is gonna develop the "blood tek"? Will work out way more cost effective than using agar in the long run 😄

if its real article. yea i agree its crazy spores or mycellium were detectable several days later and cultured and not just genetics.. guess good way to keep the blood levels up for microdose.

This is so interesting and so freaky I'm not sure which way to look at it lol. Thank you for sharing though! Mycelium never disappoints. That shit is incredible!

Psilocybin does very well in wet heat, it won't break down that easily.  You could absolutely put an eighth into like 8fl oz of water, and then once steeped, filter out all the particulate matter carefully and simmer down that 8floz into probably 3mL and use a large gauge 3ml 23 gauge needle to shoot that all into your vein slowly at once.  And yes all the actives would be in that water.. but also a FUCKTON of spores and other stuff.  So the spores got into his system, and started settling and growing on bodily tissues as substrates.

That's insane, I wonder if he would've survived long enough for mycelium to really grow and if the blood would start absorbing psilocin and psilocybin out of the mycelium and tiny pins!  Probably not.. he was already in organ failure.  But that's crazy.

I’m just confused on how the fungus lived through being boiled.

The spores, most likely. Spores are dormant and probably tough to destroy, until they are in an environment suitable enough for germination.

This is outrageous if true! Quick, someone boil some spores, see if they will spawn! I second the blood tek, someone should also try inoculating a petri full of blood. If I had some spores, I'd give it a go!


Crazy people...

I think the paper is rather dodgy, but don't know how is the reviewing system for psychiatric journarls.
There is zero information on how did they identified the fungi which they isolated from the blood. Identification based on vegetative mycelium is impossible, maybe the genus, but not the species. I would guess, that f they would have sequenced the ITS, they would have mentioned it in the article.
Neither the authors, neither the 5 (five!) citations have any mycological background.

If the guy was stupid enough to inject the stuff, he may have been too stupid to bring it to a boil. He probably used a spore syringe to inject it!

It's worth noting here that your digestive system is a tube through the body...your circulatory system is something very different.

Wtf why wouldn't he just do a alcohol extraction and inject that? I only inject high purity DMT but it needs to be at least 90% purity. Also he probably should have added fumeric acid.

I wouldn't inject that either to be honest!
