VLOG: How to Grow and Harvest Lion’s Mane

Nootropics.  They are all the craze in Silicon Valley.  Whatever can make you smarter and gives you the edge over your peers.  One of the oldest and most credibly researched nootropics is a mushroom known as Lion’s Mane, though it’s official name is one of those hard to pronounce Latin ones that make you sound like an idiot when you try to pronounce it.  In fact, Lion’s Mane is not some new nootropic, no, knowing it came  but has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for a very long time.

Instead of reinventing the wheel, here’s an article written by the king of mushrooms himself, Paul Stamets, that was published by the Huffington Post in 2017:  Lion’s Mane: A Mushroom That Improves Your Memory and Mood?

So, we –being, my girlfriend– grew some, and then we harvested, cooked and mowed them down in some butter, garlic and lemon.  I hate mushrooms, but this was dumb fucking good.  I’d seriously eat it every day.  Here is Part One documenting the process.  Enjoy.

Cheers 🤙 ,
