Mushrooms have often been referred to as food of the Gods because of their various hallucinogenic properties and other affects.
Ancient Egyptians referred to mushrooms as the plant of immortality in hieroglyphics more than 4,600 years ago. Mushrooms were so revered in Egyptian society that commoners were forbidden from touching them. Mushrooms were a food exclusively for royalty.
Mushrooms can provide more than just taste and texture for our meals, they actually have a surprisingly high nutritional value also. With more than 14,000 kinds of mushrooms in existence, only 3,000 of those are edible and about 1,400 are actually recognized as
poisonous. This could also explain why commoners were forbidden to touch mushrooms in ancient Egypt/Kemet.

Lion's Mane Mushrooms are currently my favorite mushroom. Lion's Mane Mushrooms have taken the mushroom world by storm with its rediscovered seemingly limitless benefits. It currently ranks as the #1 Medicinal/Functional Mushroom by many sites. Since I've been taking them consistently my world has become a lot brighter, the wild thing is...the fact that i've always been a pretty optimistic person overall. Taking Lion's Mane Mushrooms puts me almost in a constant state of levitation. Not too high...but definitely a few levels above of people who aren't taking intense drugs intended to make you high. My dreams are more vivid and Im able to recall them easily. I have a noticeably more intense focus while I'm having conversations with people and not just while i'm talking but also while i'm listening. My vision even seems more intense like its on a high contrast setting in my brain or something. Its almost like everyday is the first day of school, at the school that you've been begging your parents to let you attend for a very long time.
