Lemon Tek, or Lemon Tekking, is the method of using lemon juice or citric acid to “pre-digest” psychedelic mushrooms, converting the psilocybin into psilocin, for a more intense mushroom trip without the painful digestive discomfort.
Simple Lemon Tek Instructions for Mushrooms:
1. Grind your dried mushrooms into powder.
2. Squeeze enough fresh lemon juice to completely cover and saturate.
3. Wait 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.
4. Strain mushroom material from magic lemon juice (optional)
5. Consume the juice. Say “Hello” to the Space Jesus.
Humans have been consuming magic mushrooms medicinally for more than 10,000 years and some even believe psychedelic mushrooms even played a significant role in human evolution and the advancement of consciousness! The Lemontek or Lemon Tech method has been around for centuries as well, although the name Lemon Tek and the science behind Lemon Tekking is relatively modern.
Modern psychologists have been testing psilocybin and achieving very promising results in treating addiction, depression, anxiety, and even PTSD!
What Is Lemon Tek?
Psychedelic mushrooms contain psilocybin, which is actually non-psychoactive. Our bodies convert the psilocybin to psilocin through a process called phosphorylation, and then the fun begins.
This process takes about two hours if you let your stomach and kidneys do all the work, which is why many people report upset stomachs while tripping on mushrooms.
Lemon Tek converts the psilocybin to psilocin prior to consumption! This means your trip will come much faster and peak higher than traditional methods without the gut rot and upset stomach issues!
How Long Will My Mushroom Trip Last?
With traditional methods of eating the mushrooms straight, the experience typically lasts 6 to 8 hours and starts about 2 hours after consumption.
With the Lemon Tek method your mushroom trip will last 4-5 hours and start 30-60 minutes after consumption.
Recommended Doses for Magic Mushrooms
If this is your very first trip, I recommend 1g as your first dose. You can always take more after an hour or two if you desire, but there’s no way to take less.
If you’ve tripped in the past, you’re probably ready for 2 or 3 or maybe even 5g!
Mushroom Supplements Online
While not of the fun psychedelic variety, mushrooms like Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Chaga, and more have been growing in popularity due to their health benefits.
I’ve been taking Lion’s Mane for over a year after learning about it from Paul Stamets. These supplements have improved my cognitive well-being and help promote brain and nerve health.
Filtering the Mushroom Material & Consuming The Juice
In my video, I consume the juice and all of the mushroom material. Several people have contacted me to point out that I really only need to drink the juice.
That’s harder than it sounds though. Straining all of the juice from the mushy mushroom material can be messy and wasteful without the right tools.
I’ve attempted using a pour-over coffee accessory and a paper coffee filter. It worked pretty well, but I couldn’t help but wonder how much psilocin-rich lemon liquid was lost to the paper filter and surface of the coffee funnel.
Discord member James recommends making a tea with the lemon-mushroom concoction. Using a teapot with a built-in strainer, James makes an herbal tea and adds his lemon tek mushroom mixture to the strainer. When the tea pours, the mushroom material is left behind and all of the magical goodness is delivered with the tea.
This activated lemon tek tea is stable and can be stored for several days without any serious degradation or loss of potency. This makes it super helpful for taking mushrooms in groups or while traveling.
Thanks for the tip James!
