  • Another awesome and interesting video! So well produced as well! How has this channel only got 1.5k subs, cant wait for it to blow up like it deserves. Also this mushroom guy seems like a legend

  • So are you saying ones who are allergic to penicillin should not consume these powerful mushrooms? I know since childhood that I am allergic to Penicillin. I’ve been trying to figure out why I get heart palpitations when taking Turkey Tail mushrooms.. I tried the capsule s a few years ago and recently tried a liquid dual extract and same thing.. Any thoughts on this? I’ve also researched and apparently many Women experience the same thing.

  • Fantastic. Very informative but sad that we are causing all this destruction. Shame on us. Come on people. Protect these animals and look after the world. ♥️

  • Thanks so much for mentioning one of my favorite mushrooms, the wood ear. I love this mushroom in miso soup with tofu and diced or shaved carrots and topped with the diced green part of the green onion. I am enjoying your video commentaries especially on these other gourmet mushrooms and many of the major medicinal mushrooms as well. Keep up the great content, it is very much appreciated.

  • Great, I am a beekeeper and I can tell you that not a day goes by when working with bee’s where you don’t learn something new about the bees, I am 63. Very true statement. What you have just demonstrated is that there is so much more to bees than several lifetimes can grasp.
    Maybe this is why the study never took place.
    Something more interesting than all of this is the conversations that take place between individual beekeepers. After a lifetime, it much to big to document and to fully understand in one lifetime.
    Thanks for sharing!

  • We didn’t all come from Africa. Journal of Science 2019 overturned the theory.

    Theories aren’t facts, but often thought to be by Academics repeating so often.

  • did not know you could eat the wood ear.. I always wanted to eat it when i see it.. all the books say nothing about edibility… good 1 guys… thanks.

  • I notice many people keep on speaking about Clegenatur Methods (google search it). But I’m uncertain if it’s good. Have you ever tried using this popular breast enhancement method?

  • Lions Mane mushroom saved me. Heart problems layed me low and reduced my IQ to less than 50. Five weeks of taking a quarter teaspoon a day, brought that up to 144.

  • mmm mushrooms!
    I have some fungal biotech + mycology ebooks to share if anyone wants to email me and ask for a login!
    my email is my name at gmail.

  • Ergothinoneine: Humans have receptors for this… things I learned today…… not sure what we do with it… but we have receptors for t…. So hook me up!!!

  • You are such an inspiration Michael. Over the last 3 weeks I’ve been buying all my spores and supplies. Hopefully I could be successful at this…you have great videos..Please keep it up..You’re a wealth of information.. Thank you for inspiring me to Pursue this hobby

  • Substrate looks sweet or sugary. I usually make mine more tart and flavorless. That makes more stringy and harder fruits. I usually make 4” of sub with 8” overhead, let it fruit one or two times, no more than three times. Your Trisha reishi is definitely a success.

  • Love this! I have been using Four Sigmatic ‘shroom products 2 years and 8 months and LOVE them. Excellent products, knowledge, customer service. Great talk Tero!

  • Keep it up Mike!! You are an amazing person teaching the masses about mushrooms and all the good they do for the human race in general!!!

  • Thanks so much, I am so pleased I stumbled across this link & am now subbed to your videos. It is fantastic to view such a quality mushroom video.

  • I love what I see, hear and learn. I love even more that I can watch someone that looks like me as it gives me even more motivation. The articulation and how he presents and speaks with confidence is very itchy. I use this term because I am saying that I am itching to hear more and more. I need to try and find his website or possible youtube channel. Many in my garden community need to know more and listen to this amazing (in my own words) brotha. Thank you so very kindly PARAGRAPHIC for sharing Mike with us.

  • I’m intaking Ling zhi now, started light couple months ago. Now it’s an every other day intake. Took it before for 9 months few years back.

  • Amazing talk and human being, but I am concerned that his account of his mother’s illness and remission does not reconcile with a paper published by his mother’s oncologist.

  • we all need to start to plant specially those who have big land to save the bees. and don’t buy excess flowers. BEES ARE OUR MEDICINES

  • There is a large, flat mushroom outside my home that looks like relishing, but is not shiny. It is a flat red-orange colored and woody mushroom head. Does somebody know what this is? I would love to use it.

  • This is fascinating! Pharmaceuticals don’t want to hear this because they are mainly in the business of making money and could care less about the environment and the interconnectedness of all things on this planet.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if they are involved in suppressing this information.

  • Also, are there any mycologist involved in studies for the new virus pandemic? I am sure that there are herbal remedies that could help well too. We need practitioners of herbal medicine and mycologists {like Paul Staments and others here} who pioneer advancement of herbal remedies and medicinal mushrooms/mycelia as potential cures, to lead studies and bring old world medicine back to the future. Who’s with me!?

  • The plan of the elite:
    “The ban of natural non synthetic drugs and naturopathic medicine” and many other things

  • I take the 7 stamet and I can work 10hours non stop gardening,it give me energy and no pain during the day while working I also dont get hungry and I am not a spring chicken

  • thanks so much for uploading this! I’ve been delving into this science for the past few years, and this is the most insightful video that I’ve seen this year, for sure.
    by the way, those are some amazing flushes.

  • Good speech but the truth is not enough peaple will listen are peaple have bin trying to tell peaple this since they came but have just bin kill or put in jail for being a terrorist on the land we came from.

  • When you wildcraft, how do you maintain your practice as a sustainable practice? Is it possible to leach the natural “system” of its resources with this type of wildcrafting?

  • Your titles are too distracting. They take too long to transition and you definitely have too many of them. And the clicking sound… Worse, most of them are just repeats. It’d be far more informational to give us names of mushrooms, etc. That said, the content, direction, and editing is superb.

  • Paul stamets you are the people’s champ, words cannot express the respect and gratitude we have for you and what you do, thank you.

  • i’m just gonna jump out and state that someone’s lying when it comes to the figures of 30k dead from a thing you have 97% chance to survive, in a 2 week window (for time frame). So Paul saved bees from flu and birds from flu too oh and swine-fine, Why don’t we put the big magnifying glass on BIG PHARMA for not recognizing this guy or assassinating him like the guy that ran his car off water.. Paul doesn’t have any ‘magic bullets’. In this case: he is more like a magic Gatling Gun that when he starts cranking the handle, the gun rimfires a fungi salvo that leaves the scientific community dumbfounded (which is typical since big pharma didn’t pay them to agree with him). Well. I’m just seeing all this ‘hoo-haah’ from 2 years ago. What have we been doing since but all DYING?!

  • we are from dust and out healing comes from the dust not from the laboratory. we are no accident and somewhere there is a cure for every disease.

  • Paul Stamets is a Fraud who sells Worthless Mycelium products for huge amounts of Money to his Mindless Followers who can’t research Medicinal Mushrooms for themselves to know better…

  • Wow, this guy needs a Nobel prize! He is onto something HUGE. It really sucks that the pharmacutical industry is all about money and not natural health. This guys has a website I just ordered some of his mushroom capsules for health.

  • Inspirational and informative. More respect for the nutritional value of these mushrooms. Drinking Lion’s Mane coffee and Cordyceps Cacao.
    Thanks for sharing your passion.

  • Fascinating. Seeing how the mainstream press has suddenly done a 180 on psychedelics, that’s a very big red flag. And seeing the “psychonaut” community’s almost religious devotion to the substances, it’s clear there are manufactured agendas going around. Looking at the history of psychedelics in American culture, how they’ve been introduced to our culture by the elites, how the elites manufactured the counterculture, it’s chilling stuff. And the “psychedelic renaissance” is chilling because psychedelics are being viewed as not fun hallucinations but as tools to a higher consciousness or some sort of “medicine”. Clearly those at the top will have an easier time if everyone is stoned on mushrooms and rambling about “higher consciousness.” So those in power can continue to run the war machine and exploit all of humanity. Distort peoples’ senses with psychedelics and dismantle democracy and replace it with dictatorship. Sickening stuff. And it’s sad seeing these substances being used for such monstrous agendas.
    I’ve never taken psychedelics but clearly the psychedelic experience can be very overwhelming. And dangerous. And no doubt fascists are finding the psychedelic experience useful to exploit for tyranny. Hopefully the psychedelic community will wake up and combat this tyranny instead of buying into it.

  • He starts his talk with a lie… Human life didn’t originate in Africa and geography doesn’t determine ethnic markers… Statist tool.

  • There needs to be a stopping, a proverbial line in the sand, for deforestation. I hate seeing the beautiful wooded areas in my town being destroyed for new neighborhoods, gas stations every 1/4 mile, stores, etc.
