Jerry Garcia Magic Mushrooms is a new strain named after the famous lead-singer, song-writer and guitarist of the band Grateful Dead. The Grateful Dead was formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California and has been identified to play a huge role during the counter-culture movement of the 60s and 70s. Being in the heart of the counter-culture movement meant lots of experiments with different psychedelics and drugs. The band had been known to smoking DMT when they came up with the band name Grateful Dead from a Funk & Wagnalls Folklore Dictionary, in which the name means “the soul of a dead person, or his angel, showing gratitude to someone who, as an act of charity, arranged their burial”.
Jerry Garcia was known to regularly consume magic mushrooms, LSD and DMT. He also had a heroin and cocaine addiction and later died in a rehabilitation centre via a heart attack at the age of fifty-three. The name of this strain pays tribute to his contribution to the music, art and cultural influence he had.
Jerry Garcia shrooms are characterized by light golden and almost grey coloured caps. The stems are grey or near white. It almost seems like an Albino strain but it is not. These ghostly mushrooms have thick, meaty stems and medium sized caps that are also quite thick and sturdy.
