Set. Setting. Grow.
There are no promises on what next year—or even next month—might hold for any of us. All this uncertainty, to be blunt about it, is fucking debilitating.
But an extra bottle of wine or a six pack of coolers isn’t going to help in the long run. Are there better, safer alternatives?
You bet there is. What we’re talking about is…wait for it…magic mushrooms.
But not the magic mushrooms you might remember from high school. You know, the ones that put you in a corner at the party hiding from all the melting faces.
No. This time it’s different.
Stressful times have people appreciating the simple things like never before.
More time at home. Small social bubbles. Coffee on the patio, game nights. Nesting.
Others are getting fit, playing music, exploring cooking. Finding new practices, and rediscovering old ones. New paths.

What does all this have to do with magic mushrooms?
People are using this ancient plant-based medicine to help with whatever personal journey they’re on.
Micro amounts of psilocybin—as low as 1/10th of a traditional dose—can enhance the experience and results people get from their daily routines. Whether it’s better appreciating a weekend hike, some added creativity for a painting session, or a fun mood for dinner with your friends, people are finding interesting ways to use microdosing to benefit their lives.
Misconceptions still exist around magic mushrooms, based on misleading propaganda fed to us over the years. But actual science has determined there is little concern with the active ingredient found inside these little fungi.
It’s all about the dosage.
Know your ingredients.
The active ingredient in magic mushrooms—the magic part—is something called psilocybin. It differs from other socially used substances by how it works in your body. Here’s a quick overview:
Depressants, such as alcohol, slow your body’s systems and depress normal brain function. Depressants also carry high addictive potential. Withdrawal effects from long-term depressant use can be severe, and abuse leads to some of the worst personal and societal consequences of any substances.
Stimulants, such as caffeine, go the other direction. They crank up your heart rate and other bodily systems—including brain function—but they come with their own set of risks. Stimulants can also create dependency issues, and carry many of the same negative consequences that depressants do.
Psychoactive substances work primarily in the brain. They activate pathways and neural functions in a way similar to serotonin, the neurotransmitter our body uses to regulate mood and perception.
The advantage with psilocybin is its very low risk of harm to our bodies, because it’s essentially been proven non-toxic and non-addictive.
Alcohol is both toxic and addictive. But because it has been part of our social fabric and legalized for many years, we’ve figured out the dosage thing.
3 glasses of wine is predictable to most people. And for those who’ve tried, we know that 10 glasses is not advisable.
The team at Nest and Path has taken the same well-known approach to dosing alcohol, and applied it to psilocybin (magic mushrooms). We can now consistently provide products that are precisely measurable and therefore predictable in the effects you should expect.
This means staying in control. No hangovers. And, no surprises.
