Giovanni Giannelli

Psychedelic Research Group The CRTFD Psychedelic Research Group Collection was created to pay homage to those individuals who use psychedelics to evolve and awaken their conscious selves. Walk with us through Ego Death Valley. Come on one group's psychedelic trip; their journey into dreamy desert dunes, wearing sweatsuits with temperatures reaching 115 degrees.

@tizhimself

  What first sparked your interest in mycology? When I was 16 I dropped out of school to learn more about myself and what I wanted out of the world.

I remember when we would get a bag of mushrooms, back then everyone told me to eat the dust at the bottom of the bag to get you extra spun.
