Where did you mushroom journey begin?
My functional mushroom journey began at a Summit event when the founder Jeff Rosenthal told me that mushrooms were more than just for tripping and cooking! Then I started drinking Four Sigmatic mushroom coffee, and later met the Founder named Tero. I spent nearly a year as a consultant with Four Sigmatic learning an incredibly awesome amount about the fungi kingdom.
