Has anyone here done or tried this w/dried Reishi (or whatever tends to be sold as Reishi)? I wonder about this both as a potentially healthful way to ingest Reishi, and as a substitute for chewing unhealthy things like tobacco (I know two people who have/had this habit).
- Scrub it clean under water (don’t soak).
- Chew it like gum, tobacco, etc.
Would there be any issues w/this, being something raw?
As an aside, I should mention that there are issues people may not think of:
1. If purchased commercially, while a good deal, it may contain sulfites (though are they largely removed through step 1 above?), which may give an allergy-like effect.
2. One may get a similar, but not identical mushroom through foraging or purchasing, so one can’t always be easily sure of what they’re really chewing.
