Top 13 Poisonous Mushrooms

No product

Many Mushrooms have Medicinal properties and bring positive health benefits. But our wast kingdom of fungi also has toxic, poisonous and even DEADLY ones.

First step to foraging mushrooms is to learn which ones are definitely not for pot!

And as someone joked: all are edible, but some only once.

PLEASE NOTE: It is important to know what type of mushrooms are you consuming. Don't take anyone world for proper identification. It is 100% your responsibility to do your own research before consuming any type of wild harvested mushrooms.

ALL THE INFORMATION ON THIS WEBSITE ARE ONLY MY OWN THOUGHTS BASED ON MANY YEARS OF DISCOVERY AND OBSERVATION. I DON'T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY INCONVENIENT SITUATIONS OR BODY REACTION AFTER YOU CONSUMING ANY OF MUSHROOM SPECIES.
