Golden Teacher Mushrooms for sale I’ve been working from home since March 12, 2020. Well, I should probably say “working.”
My social media feeds are filled with photos of plump, homemade loaves of sourdough, job promotion announcements, and fellow writers sharing new works in publications they’ve always dreamed of being published in.
Me? I’m operating at about 40 percent capacity, sliding into debt, having difficulty concentrating, and feeling anxious as the number of COVID-19 cases continue to surge higher every day.
I’m not deeply depressed, but only because I meditate every day, take vitamin D and B12, practice yoga, and talk virtually to a therapist once every 2 months.
I’m definitely not killing it by any means.
So, I couldn’t help but be curious about Trip, a new app by Field Trip Health, which is opening a chain of psychedelic therapy clinics in the United States and Canada.
Launched in September, the app is designed to support the at-home psychonaut on a trip fueled by psilocybin mushrooms, LSD, ketamine, or other psychedelics to improve mental health.
I did try some microdoses over the summer, though. Remembering how my mom’s hair had appeared to send off gentle wisps of smoke and how hard it had been to maintain my cool with that small dose, I thought 1 gram of golden teacher mushrooms (in chocolate form) would be plenty for me to trip safely, and effectively test drive the Trip app.
Along with lots of helpful literature about how to prepare for a psychedelic trip, how to handle a bad one, and how to meaningfully process the experience afterward, the app has a few features designed to enhance or support you while you’re tripping.
“Trip blends modern understandings of neuroscience and psychology with the wisdom of experienced practitioners in meditation, breathwork, and self-exploration,” according to a press release for the app.
