COOKIES THC MUSHROOM CAPS
Let’s talk about Cookies Thc Mushroom Caps. Not just the kind we see in some foods, but some of the ones we don’t see. Recently, Cookies launched “Caps”, a mushroom infused THC capsule that provides interesting effects. While psilocybin isn’t legal here in California, some counties have made steps for decriminalization of magic mushrooms. These caps contain other mushrooms, like cordyceps and lion’s mane, both of which have been found to provide mood and energy boosting effects; this combination can be found in their “clarity” Caps. So why are more and more people turning to mushrooms, what do we know about mushrooms, and why aren’t we using them more? Let’s delve into the magic world of mushrooms, and how they blend into the world of cannabis and plant medicine.
Lion’s mane is a legal mushroom, found in many groceries and wholesale food marketplaces, this mushroom provides a nutty flavor when cooked, but can also provide other great effects. With stellar antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, this mushroom has also shown signs of providing protection against dementia. Studies have also shown that lion’s mane can reduce ulcers and diabetes. Cordyceps are slightly different, they have effects that are beneficial for exercise, as they increase the bodies use of ATP and show anti-tumor properties. While cordyceps are found in capsule form, it can be found in grocery stores, but most commonly in health food stores. Some in depth information of Lion’s Mane mushrooms can be found using this link: Lions Mane and more information on cordyceps can be found with this link: Cordyceps
Together, these two mushrooms provide unique benefits that help the brain recover from stress and lower the risk of stress induced diseases. There are some personal accounts of the combination assisting with the struggles of ADD & ADHD, while others claim that the combination helps them fight fatigue and the urge to use some more potent fixes to caffeine; but there are no studies done on this yet.
So, what are the Caps? The “Clarity” caps contain a mixture of THC, Terpenes, Cordyceps, and Lion’s Mane. Working together to create a focusing and mood elevating effect, this blend, placed into a capsule, to easily be released into your body. The carrier capsule is gluten free and vegan, being made from a mixture of Hypromellose, Tapioca Starch, and Microcrystalline Cellulose. Each individual blend of caps contains other ingredients as well, such as guarana in their daytime CBD/CBG Caps, that are available through the Cookies website.

Caps comes in a wide variety of blends; all being used to accomplish different things. Cookies also produces a night-time blend called “Bed Head”. This capsule contains Reishi, Changa, Shiitake, Maitake, and Turkey Tail mushrooms. Along with THC and CBN, these capsules are great for a healing and rejuvenating sleep. Reishi strengthens your immune system, while also supporting rejuvenation and stress relief. Changa is rich in antioxidants that help improve clear skin and digestive health. Maitake also helps to stimulate the immune system and regulate blood pressure. Shiitake mushrooms have been proven to improve cardiovascular function; and Turkey Tail assists the natural proteins that fuel the body’s immune system. This awesome blend of mushrooms can assist in strengthening the immune system and immune response, making it easier for your body to fight infection overtime.
Psilocybin can be found in mushrooms; most have long, thin stems with bulging caps, while they do range in color depending on variety of mushroom, they all produce the wide array of effects known as “tripping” when taken in copious quantities. Research at major Universities have been studying how these mushrooms can make a positive impact in our society. Most recently they have been studying the effects in depression and anxiety and how the mushrooms can reduce the impact of these chemical imbalances. Other benefits mostly come from micro dosing, or taking extremely tiny amounts, of the mushroom a few times a week. Micro dosing psylocibin has shown to illuminate different neuro pathways in the brain that otherwise are not being used. Here is the link to some more information about micro-dosing and how it has affected some users: Info
In those with depression, this can help to highlight new paths for serotonin and dopamine to get the receptors. In other brains, like those suffering from PTSD, the new pathways help trauma patients move away from old patterns into new ones. Similar findings have shown in helping alcoholism patients feel less urge to drink and has helped them with overall quitting the substance abuse. Cigarette users have also found some relief. While the levels of dose and the number of times taken do vary from person to person, there have been extremely promising effects to come from them. While the science is still very new, and more research absolutely must be conducted, these mushrooms have opened the door to many more benefits being found. All of these links have more in-depth science on how exactly the mushroom react in the brain, and how exactly the chemicals blend and match.
