Thirdeye Microdose have intrigued psychonauts for centuries, offering a deep and often profound psychedelic voyage. While there are many different ways to consume them, a few methods have become more popular than others. Lemon tek is one of these methods, a simple preparation that involves soaking the mushrooms in lemon juice before consumption to improve the potency. It also masks the mushroom taste, which can be a nuisance for some.
Although it’s unclear how lemon tek works, it is believed to convert the psilocybin found in mushrooms into a more soluble form for easier uptake. By skipping this step, it allows the psilocin to enter the body more quickly and experience stronger effects. This method is favored by some for its ability to produce a faster onset and shorter trip duration.
How to Make Lemon Tek
Grind the mushrooms into a powder using a manual or electric grinder. Add the powder to a cup or shot glass and pour in enough lemon juice to cover it completely. Allow the mixture to sit for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
While lemon or lime is the most common juice used in this technique, any citrus fruit will work just fine as long as it contains high levels of citric acid. In addition to lemons, grapefruit, oranges, and kumquats are all good options. Lemon tea can be enjoyed on its own or mixed with tea, coffee, or other elixirs.
