What is the Multiverse? 

We believe in magically supercharging your well-being and achieving vibrant health through fungi, one of nature’s greatest untapped forces. Multiverse is a curated online marketplace for the highest quality indie products that are made with natural fungi to help you approach true immortality.

Welcome to the kingdom of fungi. 

Mushrooms are incredible species that have the power to heal our bodies and the planet. They are loaded with antioxidants, have anti-inflammatory properties, and have mood-enhancing capabilities - just to name a few of their many benefits. Although these powerhouse plants have been around and used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, mushrooms can be overwhelming for the average consumer. We’re here to help you achieve your optimal state of health by introducing to you new daily rituals.

The Multiverse welcomes everyone to join us. 

We are radical, risky, and above all else - inclusive. Like the fungi kingdom, we welcome all to share the joy of mushrooms. We believe that the strongest Multiverse is the most diverse, and we support POC-owned, minority-owned, female-founded fungi brands.

Our mission is to optimize your well-being. 

Mushrooms as a superfood is still a relatively new concept. Do you find yourself wondering…

  • How can I incorporate these amazing mushrooms into my daily routine?
  • What is a functional mushroom anyway? 
  • What does adaptogen really mean?
  • What are the essential nutrients in mushrooms?
  • I want to optimize my health with mushrooms, but where do I begin?
  • Will these get things me high? 

Rest your mind, that’s where we come in. Multiverse sources, vets, and tests the best fungi-based consumer products on our marketplace to get you one step closer to optimal well-being and living your heightened life. 

P.S. None of our brand partner products will get you anything but high on life. (AKA, they do not have any hallucinogenic properties). 

The Multiverse standards. 

We pride ourselves on upholding the highest standards within our sacred kingdom. That means that you can rest assured that all Multiverse products found in our marketplace are full of only the good stuff (AKA Fung-YES’s) and free from the nasties (AKA Fung-NOs).

Fung-NO.

What is your mushroom spirit animal and why?

My mushroom spirit animal is the Shiitake Mushroom. This past winter I spent the season in Northern Japan on the island of Hokkaido. Every day I would hike for 5-6 hours through the wilderness in search for perfect snowboarding lines. As I adventured through the remote region full of Shiitake Mushrooms I felt connected to the powerful fungi species. At the end of every day I felt my passion for the outdoors boosted my immunity and supported my health in so many amazing ways just like my fungi friend.

Tell us one of your favorite facts that captivated you with the fungi world.

Land plants and terrestrial animals would not exist without fungi. Fungi were some of the first complex life forms on land, mining rocks for mineral nourishment, slow turning them into what became soil.

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man! Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” ― Dalai Lama

Favorite mushroom pun (or funny joke)?

What’s the difference between a mushroom and a tree? One’s a tree.

What is your mushroom spirit animal and why?

I’m going to have to go with Cordyceps as my spirit mushroom. This fungi is a hustler, and is amazing for so many aspects of our health, immunity, and heart. Cordyceps is used for energy, and when I ingest it I feel like I have the stamina of the Ice Age squirrel.

Tell us one of your favorite facts that captivated you with the fungi world.

Fly Agaric mushrooms, which look like Super Mario Bros, contain a psychoactive chemical that can cause micropsia/macropsia, aka the illusion that objects around you are larger or smaller than they actually are. AKA Fly Agaric mushrooms will give you major Alice in Wonderland vibes.

Quote that you live by.

“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.” - Dalai Lama

Favorite mushroom pun (or funny joke)?

You can’t choose a favorite child, and I think mushroom puns are good for any occasion. They are very portabella.
