In this article, we will provide step-by-step instructions on how to make mushroom chocolates. Below, you will find a helpful shroom chocolate recipe. In addition, we provide information on the beneficial properties cacao can provide to your entheogenic psilocybin experience.
The combination of cacao and mushrooms has a long history that goes back thousands of years to the Aztecs. Traditionally, practitioners prepared a magic brew of psilocybin and cacao for ceremonies in South America. Aztecs referred to magic mushroom as teonanacátl, the Nahuatl word for “god mushroom” (or “flesh of the gods”). Interestingly, the Latin genus/species for cacao is Theobroma cacao, dervied from the Greek for “food of the gods.”
Combining chocolate with mushrooms is beneficial for a number of reasons. Making mushroom chocolates can be a helpful way to preserve psilocybin, a plant substance notoriously difficult to keep for prolonged periods. In general, mushrooms tend to taste rather gross to many individuals. However, combining chocolate can eliminate the gag factor that may follow when attempting to eat psilocybin on its own.
Beyond cacao’s nutritional values and heightened levels of antioxidants, it is also a mood-enhancing stimulant. Additionally, cacao contains mild levels of monamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOI’s). With so many beneficial properties, it’s no wonder that the union of magic mushrooms and chocolate is a holy matrimony.
The effects of mushroom chocolates can depend widely on the psilocybin chosen to make the treats. In general, psychoactive psilocybin gives a euphoric high, with psychedelic fractal-like visuals. Many describe the effects of magic mushrooms as extremely relaxing, while large doses can provide an ego-death experience.
Beyond the effects of ingesting psychedelic mushrooms, the chocolate brings its own undeniable and beneficial properties. Cacao has a high nutritional value, containing protein, healthy fats, fiber, and beneficial minerals. In addition, it contains high levels of magnesium, which aid in muscle relaxation. Serotonin, a well-known mood enhancer found in cacao and magnesium and tryptophan, is also found in cacao. It adds an additional boost to the body’s production of new serotonin.
In addition to these beneficial nutrients, the mild levels of MAOIs found in cacao can enhance the psychedelic experience. MAOIs prevent MAO enzymes from breaking down the entheogenic compounds in your body. Ultimately, this slows the body’s ability to flush the these compounds from the system.
As if that wasn’t enough, the list continues for cacao’s beneficial properties. Phenylethylamine (PEA), an organic compound the brain releases when an individual is in love, is also found in cacao, creating feelings of love and happiness. Finally, cacao provides a natural cannabinoid called Anandamide (ANA), similar to THC, offering a blissed-out, joyful feeling.
With all it brings to the table, it’s no wonder that chocolate has been used with psilocybin for thousands of years.
