What does 30:1 Extract mean?
Many companies have opted to use the full mushroom within their products as opposed to an extract. Using the full mushroom results in the finished product likely not containing enough of the active ingredient. This is why we only use extract.
Although there is only 400mg of extract contained within the capsule, there’s 30x the amount of active ingredient stored in it (12,000mg)! This is why we say the product is made using a 30:1 Extract.
Are these Magic Mushrooms? Will I get high?
