Join us on this journey as we navigate the intersections of plant medicine and fitness with our esteemed guest, Dr. Darian Parker, also fondly known as Dr. D. Together, we explore the benefits of spirulina and cordyceps, potent plant-based supplements that can potentially enhance athletic performance.

Dr. D emphasizes the importance of sleep as a critical aspect of recovery, and we discuss how natural remedies like smoothies can aid in this process. However, he cautions that the search for supplementation should not precede the mastery of basic recovery practices. As the conversation unfolds, we also look at the growing interest in functional mushrooms such as cordyceps and spirulina, and how the term 'magic mushrooms' is increasingly used to describe their effects. We address the potential benefits of using cannabis before a workout, with Dr D suggesting it could enhance focus and concentration. Beyond plant medicine, we also explore other fascinating topics ranging from UFOs and psychedelics to poetry.

(00:23) Plant Medicine in Fitness Exploration

I mention how I use spirulina and cordyceps to supplement my routine, and how research has shown that they can act as ergogenic aids to help enhance athletic performance. Dr D talks about how the best supplement for performance and recovery is actually sleep, and that often people look for supplementation before improving the basics of recovery. We also discuss how natural remedies, like smoothies, can be beneficial for aiding in recovery, and how sedatives do not contribute to deep sleep.

(10:30) Functional Mushrooms and Plant Medicine Power

We discuss the use of functional mushrooms, such as cordyceps and spirulina, as ergogenic aids to enhance physical wellness. We examine how terminology such as 'magic mushrooms' is being used to describe their effects, and how the placebo effect can be just as powerful for those who believe in the effects of the plant medicine. We also look at the use of cannabis before a workout, and how it can help with focus and concentration.

(23:11) Exploring UFOs, Psychedelics, and Poetry

We explore various topics, from UFOs and psychedelics to poetry. We look forward to hearing from a guest whose book was written by the Dalai Lama. We also discuss the production of the podcast and our sponsors, and encourage listeners to subscribe and rate our podcast.
