Mushrooms And Ancient Man. 

It is believed that people have gathered and consumed mushrooms since the Stone Age.

With little to no knowledge of what they were doing, early people discovered the effects different mushrooms could have on them by the simple process of trial and error.

This meant just eating any old mushroom they found laying about and waiting to see what happened.

This is an incredibly dangerous and foolhardy way to go about it, but it was the only way available. 

Gathering wild mushrooms is still done today but is only recommended for experts in mushroom identification and is not suitable at all for novices.

Many kinds of mushrooms are toxic to people, but only a few varieties are deadly. 

This doesn't mean that eating a poisonous mushroom is in any way an enjoyable experience - just a survivable one. 

Our ancient ancestors must have found enough benefit to eating mushrooms to keep up this dangerous method of trial and error for tens of thousands of years.

Eventually, early man learned enough about mushrooms to know that some are good; some are bad, and that they can be cultivated, or grown on purpose.

                                Mushrooms And Ancient Man

Purposeful mushroom growing probably started in Japan and China, both cultures that highly value mushrooms as food and medicine. 

It is estimated that the East was growing mushrooms long before the Egyptians, Greeks, and

Romans discovered a reliable method for mushroom cultivation.

In the west, mushrooms were also popular. 

Egyptian hieroglyphs dating back almost five thousand years, depict people gathering mushrooms. 

The Egyptians considered the mushroom an important ingredient in their quest for immortality and it was a crime to eat them unless you were royalty.

The Greeks and Romans also held the mushroom in high regard, while there was no outright law forbidding anyone from eating mushrooms; they were very expensive and only available to those who could afford them.

To all these cultures, both east and west, the mushroom was always more than food. It was medicine as well. 

The medicinal nature of certain mushroom varieties was known to all of the ancient cultures. 

Chinese medical practices have made extensive use of mushrooms for centuries, and their use was a popular remedy for a variety of ailments.

In parts, many parts of Central and South America and Northern Europe, psychoactive mushrooms were easily obtainable and it is easy to see the effect this had on the religious and spiritual practices of the cultures that had access to them. 

The spiritual effects of these mushrooms inspired entire religions and mysterious cults. 

The cultures that used them in this manner elevated the mushroom to the realm of the sacred and considered it a gift from the heavens.

These mushrooms and the experiences they made available were something special to be cherished and revered. 

The use of psychoactive mushrooms is still popular today though they are mostly consumed in a recreational manner devoid of spiritual and religious overtones. 

It is also illegal in many countries to cultivate, possess or consume them.
