  • What are Psilocybin Mushrooms and what are the Effects?
    Psilocybin is a psychoactive compound found in many species of fungi. Typically, the effects of psilocybin on an empty stomach will be felt within an hour of ingestion and include shifts in consciousness, perception, mood, and thought. Research indicates that there are many potential lasting benefits of psilocybin including enhanced subjective wellbeing; increased activity in the visual cortex and experience of “ego loss”; and promotion of creativity and empathy. The experience can lead to the unearthing and release of stored emotions, memories, deep insights, profound and psychedelic imagery, and an entire spectrum of feelings from euphoria to sadness or grief. Please note that psilocybin is not known to be addictive.

  • Where are psilocybin mushrooms sourced from?
    All mushrooms used during your experience are grown in a controlled environment and checked regularly for quality and safety.
  • Is Psilocybin safe?
    Based on Psychedelic Research psilocybin is safe and highly effective when taken correctly. It should be taken in a safe and controlled environment under the guidance of experienced facilitators. Safety depends on various factors such as one’s physical and mental health, the setting, dosage, and the expertise of the facilitators. It is important to thoroughly research and choose a reputable retreat center or psychedelic facilitator, disclose any pre-existing medical conditions or medications, and carefully follow the guidelines provided. When used responsibly and with proper preparation, psilocybin can offer profound experiences.
  • Are there drug interactions with Psilocybin?
    It is best to refrain from any stimulant drugs (cocaine, etc.) when taking psilocybin. Please disclose all medications currently taking when filling out our questionnaire.
  • What is a "bad trip"?
    The phrase “bad trip” is often used to describe an experience that challenges us. When we are given the opportunity to walk through a rigorous part of our journey, we may be reminded that these are the barriers that brought us to use plant medicine. We each own our own journey, which allows us to redefine how we look at the fears we bring into it. Changing the idea of having “a bad trip” to “leaning into what presents itself” allows you to take control and work through this challenge with the guidance of your facilitator.
  • Is Mexico safe?
    The Finca is located an hour outside of Guadalajara. Guadalajara is the second largest city in Mexico and is typically deemed as safe. Like any destination, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and exercise common sense. While there are areas of Mexico that have experienced security concerns, many popular tourist destinations are considered safe for visitors. To ensure a safe trip, it is advisable to research your destination in advance and follow local news and government travel advisories via your country's Embassy website.
  • Do I need cash?
    We highly recommend having cash on hand in the event you would like to purchase items from our boutique store or any activity that may have an additional cost such a massage. We accept USD or Mexican Pesos. We allow the option of using the card on file at the time participants registered for the retreat.
