Magic Mushroom Map is the best resource to find psychedelic fungi growing in the wild.

The name is self explanatory – this website is a map showing forecasted locations of (naturally growing!) shrooms.

The fungi they map out are Psilocybe semilanceata, otherwise known as Liberty Caps, the mushroom found growing in nature that causes anywhere from mild to high trips.

How does the Magic Mushroom Map work?

Fortunately, the map does all the science for us. Taking in the environmental factors to grow Liberty Caps (location, temperature, weather, soil acidity, etc.), Magic Mushroom Map has mapped out the optimal areas for mushrooms to naturally grow.

Living on the West Coast of North America or northern Europe? You’re in luck! Liberty Caps thrive in those areas and love grassy wetlands. While other areas are less likely to produce these mushrooms, Magic Mushroom Map is constantly being reviewed and updated by crowdsourced information, so keep an eye out for any developments.

There’s a mushroom bloom forecasted near you, now what?

You can either spontaneously brave the great outdoors or check out Magic Mushroom Map’s subscription option.

The paid version (£9.00 monthly) shows the walkable routes in those areas (for everyone’s sake, don’t go rifling through someone’s backyard) and a 10-day forecast, so you can plan your quest in advance.

Last Minute Trip Pro-tips:

If it’s your first time taking a trip, be prepared. Make sure to hydrate (with water, take that beer out of your bag), take some sugary snacks, and bring a friend. Most importantly, bring a good mindset. Psychedelics only amplify your current emotions, so give them a pass if you are feeling sad or depressed.
