Friday Book Club: How To Grow Psilocybin Mushrooms

“HOW TO GROW PSILOCYBIN MUSHROOMS: The Ultimate Step-By-Step Guide to Cultivation and Safe Use of Psychedelic Magic Mushrooms With Benefits and Side Effects” by Gordon L. Atwell

Those who have sampled the curious and, at times, magnificent effects of psilocybin often desire to have regular access to their own reliable supply but often do not know where to begin with such an endeavor.

Now you can learn more about the science behind the “magic mushrooms”, better understand how they interact with the human body from a scientific standpoint, and how one may cultivate the mushrooms themselves from home.

If you have an interest in psilocybin use then it is worth exploring what author Gordon L. Atwell has to say on the subject in this book.

-Topic Focus-

This book breaks down mushrooms and psilocybin from a broad range entailing the history, the current political environment around mushroom use, the scientific discoveries surrounding psilocybin, an exploration of the mental and psychological impact of mushrooms on the human brain, how to grow them, and so much more fascinating content on the subject.

This book seems intended to serve as a look at the larger picture of “magic mushrooms” with the goal of addressing the topic from a variety of perspectives in order to weave together a more complete understanding of the subject at hand.

The information available on mushroom cultivation is decent and ideal for a beginner who is looking to explore the basics of mushroom cultivation.

-About the Author-

Atwell is no stranger to writing and cultivating as he has also written “MICROGREENS: An Essential Guide to Grow Nutrient-Dense Organic Microgreens for Your Health or Profit”, “Aquaponics for Beginners: The Ultimate Step-by-Step Guide to Build Your Own Aquaponics Garden System That Will Grow Organic Vegetables”, “Fruits, Herbs and Raising Fish”, “ORGANIC GARDENING: 3 Manuscripts”, “Hydroponics for Beginners, Aquaponics for Beginners and Microgreens, For Your Health or Profit”, and more.

-Reading Experience-

The book is clearly well researched in regards to the breakdown on the politics, the history, usage, and more of mushroom and psilocybin use.

The writing level is somewhat sub par and the information presented on actual cultivation is fairly basic, to be fair.

“HOW TO GROW PSILOCYBIN MUSHROOMS” does a solid job of condensing a wide variety of information regarding mushrooms into one book that is not overly complex to read


Author Gordon L. Atwell brings some serious research to the table regarding mushrooms and psilocybin but the writing level is noticeably lacking at times.

Beginners when it comes to mushroom cultivation can take some decent information from this book but those who are moving past the beginners stage will not find much beyond what they already know.

Having a single book to cover the political, social, scientific, and other aspects of mushrooms absolutely helps this book to stand out among others of its kind.
