Jump to Section

Magic mushrooms have been used for centuries for their psychedelic effects and spiritual properties. Among the many species of magic mushrooms, the Liberty Caps are one of the most popular due to their potency and availability. This guide will give you an overview of what Liberty Caps are, how to identify them, and what you need to know before consuming them.

What Are Liberty Caps Mushrooms?

Liberty Caps, also known as Psilocybe semilanceata, is a type of magic mushroom that grows naturally in many parts of the world. They contain psilocybin, a psychedelic compound that produces a range of effects on the mind and body when consumed. Liberty Caps have a distinctive shape, with a small, bell-shaped cap that ranges in color from light brown to dark caramel.

How Did the Liberty Caps Mushroom Get Its Name?

The origin of the name “Liberty Caps” is not entirely clear, but it is believed to have come from their association with the French Revolution. During the Revolution, people wore a Phrygian cap, also known as a liberty cap, as a symbol of their desire for freedom and democracy. The mushroom’s bell-shaped cap resembles this hat, which may have led to its name.

Liberty Caps Identification: What to Look For

Identifying Liberty Caps can be tricky, as they can be easily confused with other mushroom species. Learning how to identify mushrooms can be a lifesaver if you enjoy foraging! The cap of a Liberty Cap is small and bell-shaped, with a diameter of 5-25mm. It ranges in color from light brown to dark caramel and has a distinctive nipple-like protrusion at the top. The stem is thin and ranges in color from light yellow to brown. When broken, the stem bruises blue.

Where Do Liberty Caps Grow?

Liberty Caps grow naturally in many parts of the world, including Europe, North America, and Australia. They typically grow in grassy areas, such as meadows and pastures, from late summer to early winter. They prefer damp soil and cool temperatures, so they are most commonly found in areas with mild, wet climates. However, Liberty Caps can be grown both indoors and outdoors.

Is It Safe to Eat Liberty Caps Mushrooms?

Consuming Liberty Caps can be safe, but knowing what you are doing is essential. Like all mushrooms, Liberty Caps can be poisonous if not correctly identified. In addition, the psychoactive effects of psilocybin can be unpredictable, and it is possible to have a bad trip. It is recommended that you do your research and have a sober, experienced trip sitter with you if you decide to consume Liberty Caps.

Are Liberty Caps Psychedelic?

Yes, Liberty Caps are a type of psychedelic mushroom. The active ingredient in Liberty Caps is psilocybin, which produces a range of effects on the mind and body. These effects can include altered perceptions of reality, heightened creativity, and a sense of euphoria. However, it is important to note that the effects of psilocybin can be unpredictable and vary from person to person.

What Are the Best Ways to Consume Liberty Caps Mushrooms?

There are several ways to consume Liberty Caps, including eating them raw, drying them, or making them into tea. One popular method is to make tea by steeping the mushrooms in hot water for several minutes. This can help to reduce nausea and other gastrointestinal effects that can occur when consuming raw mushrooms. Another popular method is to grind the mushrooms into a powder and encapsulate them, making it easier to measure out a precise dose.

How Much Is a Dose of Liberty Caps?

The potency of Liberty Caps can vary depending on several factors, including the strain, the season, and the location in which they were grown. As a general rule, a beginner’s dose of Liberty Caps is around 1-2 grams of dried mushrooms. More experienced users may take larger doses, but please note that these are one of the strongest types of psychedelic mushrooms, so you should proceed with caution! 

For anyone looking to microdose mushrooms, starting with a tenth to two-tenths of a gram is best.

  • mathewjohn avatar mathewjohn Just some quick bites for you on the two questions you mentioned here to chew on:

    1) The Past

    What we call the past is just a memory, an image, an echo, arising in the present. The future is also just a thought arising now. And in this moment… this… not the one that just passed you by. But this bright moment of consciousness. Here there is an opportunity. The only opportunity. To make contact with your life. Seize it.

    2) Purpose

    Consciousness is all we have. It’s what we are as a matter of experience. It’s what makes the people we love worth loving. It’s what makes our failures to love so tragic. It’s what puts the sting in every missed opportunity. It’s the substance of every joy and every sorrow. Notice this bright circumstance, in which everything is appearing all by itself. This is it. The real treasure of existence is already in your hand.

    In other words, without consciousness, there can be no happiness, goodness, beauty, meaning or purpose-just an astronomical waste of space. This implies that when people ask about the meaning of life as if it were the job of our cosmos to give meaning to our existence, they're getting it backward.

    Its not our universe giving meaning to conscious beings, but conscious beings giving meaning to our universe.

    Mad love and blessings your way today 🫶
  • neomonk avatar neomonk Def open to any thoughts or feedback
  • neomonk avatar neomonk I thought maybe there was a tolerance thing playing in, but I always wait a minimum of 8 full days between trips, minimum.
  • neomonk avatar neomonk The funny thing about the "send back" thing that happend last week - the trip exited very quickly, like I was up for less than an hour, I came up quickly, got the message, and then I was back down into base reality in less than an hour and a half. By the time 2 hours had passed I was basically "sober"
  • neomonk avatar neomonk Very interesting this "other" - it's quite clever, whatever "it" is.
  • neomonk avatar neomonk Unfortunatly the stuff we discussed in my last trip is some pretty difficult stuff to deal with, lol.
  • neomonk avatar neomonk When I went in with texas yellow caps the message came back very clearly, there is nothing for you here right now, so I'm going to send you back, and you need to deal with the stuff we "discussed" in your last trip.
  • neomonk avatar neomonk I've heard of this happening with DMT. I went in with 7G over the weekend where I've had very transcendent experiences before between 5 and 7g, a few weeks ago I got into my childhood trauma a lot, one of the many aspects of what I need to work through (mostly two questions I've been struggling with, how do I make peace with my past, and what is my purpose/what am I doing here because the path I've been on doesn't feel good) - past 5g/7g trips I've had very connecting feelings to the universe, texas yellow caps specifically brought me out to space DMT style.
  • mathewjohn avatar mathewjohn Mystery strain!! I wish though it was an incredible experience, very connecting was the theme for the journey
  • keefthechief17 avatar keefthechief17 You find out the strain?
  • mathewjohn avatar mathewjohn I will at the end of the week 🙂
  • holla1984 avatar holla1984 This is super powerful. Did you connect with any of the folks that were in the ceremony after? I wonder if you popped into their awareness as well.
  • holla1984 avatar holla1984 So interesting. I've had this experience smoking DMT. I have tried multiple times and just cannot break through - despite knowing how to consume this substance. It's like, the body high takes hold, I *start to blast off, but then it rejects me. I've heard from other people that DMT has also told them "no" and basically - this is not what you're after. Shortly after this experience, I was having tea with a friend's mom. She is a pretty powerful intuitive, and out of nowhere, she said something like "You know...the things you're seeking from psychedelics, you can find them elsewhere. You should consider diversifying your journeys." Heard that loud and clear.
  • mathewjohn avatar mathewjohn I did about 2g of an unknown strain mushroom chocolates this weekend

    And the experience was really interesting -- the waves and vibes lasted pretty long -- and the most notable thing for me was the energies that it bought

    There was a connecting energy:
    1. A strong connection I felt with my wife that lasted a long while
    2. A unique connection that I experienced with another group that I realized was doing a plant medicine ceremony at the same time during my journey -- I literally was participating in the chants of the ceremony, and couldn't figure out why until I realized that they were holding ceremony and it was likely the exact time they were doing the chants -- crazy connecting energies
  • mathewjohn avatar mathewjohn That's an interesting observation ^
