The whole world is in the psychedelic renaissance. Psilocybin is one of the plants that come to mind when psychedelics are mentioned. But, thousands of other non-hallucinogenic mushrooms such as Reishi, Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, and Chaga have been in existence for over 4,000 years and are used as medicines especially in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Our guest today, Jeff Chilton, has been working with these fungi before it became the “New Woke.”
Jeff is an ethno-mycologist that has been working with Shrooms since the late 60s. He’s traveled all over the world, including Asia, teaching and learning the best techniques to grow and extract high-quality organic mushrooms. Jeff is the founder of Nammex, the first Certified Organic mushroom extracts for supplements. He’s also the co-author of the acclaimed book, “The Mushroom Cultivator” published in 1983.
Dr. O and Jeff dived deep into all things Shrooms and how to harness their medicinal properties to level up on your wellness journey.

“How do I grow mushrooms? They don’t have seeds…”
“In the 60s, the "power that be" criminalized plants and agents like LSD so that they can lock us up in jails…and they’ve been doing it to the minorities for generations” .... Jeff Chilton, President Nammex
