I had a friend who grew these, and the harvest was prolific. He would regularly hand me a few grams of “extra” stuff, to the extent that at one point I had something like 2 ounces in a dresser drawer, and I couldn’t give it away fast enough. And the stuff was potent. He stopped growing when he moved to a new house, and I’ve always wanted to take it up. It seems pretty easy, to be honest.

I’ve never gone down that route – marijuana was never really my jam, but the notion of something that could give my depressing a kick in the arse is really tempting. The anti-depressants my wife takes seem… well… depressing.

My friend did it in order to microdose for his own depression and other issues. It worked for him, though he had prior experience with psychedelics. It’s definitely not for everyone.

It’s been a while; but it is easy. And I have a brown thumb.

Cubensis shrooms are easy to grow (you can buy kits online) but I prefer the Liberty Cap shroom - far superior but really difficult to cultivate.
