About 3 years ago, both Nicole and her husband went through some very difficult times with their mental health, and the two of them decided to look into natural treatment options as traditional pharmaceuticals were not working. Their research led them to both cannabis and psilocybin containing mushrooms. Over the last 3 years, Nicole has learned an enormous amount about the physiology and growing needs of fungi including ideal substrate, inoculation methods, incubation techniques, fruiting conditions, and preservation steps. She has also obtained an extensive genetics library, as well as become an expert on genetics preservation (spore collection and cloning as well as selection criteria to ensure vigorous growth and potency). She has also done experiential experimentation on dosing in both a micro and macro scale. Through this process, both Nicole and her husband have seen significant success in managing the symptoms of their mental health conditions, and can see the value in sharing this potential solution with others who suffer from treatment resistant depression, anxiety, and other life impacting issues. Psychedelics can truly be the key that unlocks a person’s ability to live an enjoyable, productive life.
