Frequently asked questions

What is this?

Liberty caps - or Psilocybe semilanceata - are a psilocybin-containing mushroom that grow naturally in many parts of the world. We believe such mushrooms can help individuals and societies to flourish. Magic Mushroom Map is our best effort at using all available data to maximise your chance of being in the right place at the right time to find liberty caps.

How does it work?

We use statistical models to learn about how the presence of liberty caps is influenced by environmental factors (e.g. soil properties, weather) based on thousands of crowdsourced reports. For more information please read our Field Guide.
