Does Mushroom Coffee Get You High?

There are many common misconceptions when it comes to MUSHROOM COFFEE. I think my friends & family were pretty shocked when I started drinking it because I’m not a fan of mushrooms in general (think portobello) but I do love me some mushrooms in my coffee & I’ll tell you why!

  • Does mushroom coffee actually get you high?

  • Does it taste like coffee?

  • Is it coffee or an alternative to coffee?

  • Is there caffeine?

  • Are there health benefits?

I get asked the same questions about drinking shroom coffee so I figured I’d answer them all here. By the way, here some commonly used superfood mushrooms and their benefits:

🍄 LIONS MANE protects the brain and nerves, supports memory and concentration, supports brain function, reduces inflammation, aids in mental clarity, improves mood

🍄 CHAGA high antioxidant properties, supports liver, rich in vitamins & minerals, supports immune system, supports gut health and digestion, lowers cholesterol, known as the “king of mushrooms”

🍄 REISHI helps with stress. aids in sleep, is a powerful immune supporter, supports healthy blood pressure, fights allergies & asthma, balances inflammation levels in the body, can help you relax and get a good night sleep

🍄 CORDYCEPS gives energy, helps performance, helps maintain steady energy levels, helps your body produce it’s own energy, supports healthy energy levels, stamina & libido, supports kidney, liver, adrenal glands, supports respiratory and immune health

Does it taste like coffee?

YES! It tastes like coffee because it IS real coffee.

Is it coffee or an alternative to coffee?

It's real coffee not an alternative to coffee.

Is there caffeine?

Yes... because it IS real coffee. They do have decaf though.

Are there health benefits?

Yes! See the list of mushrooms above. The coffee I drink has lions mane and chaga in it.

Does it get you high?

NO! These aren't psychedelic mushrooms. There is no high.

I’ve been drinking FOUR SIGMATIC coffee and have used their product line for many years now. I love that they are USDA ORGANIC and that they test (by a third-party lab) for mold, mycotoxins, heavy metals, microbial quality, aflatoxins, and pesticides. They want everything to be at the HIGHEST QUALITY!
