Lion's Mane, or Hericium Erinaceus, is a type of mushroom that originated in Asia, Europe, and parts of Northern America. This mushroom goes by many different names, such as pom pom mushroom, monkey head mushroom, bearded tooth mushroom, and bearded hedgehog mushroom. It has a very distinct fur-like texture to it, growing in clusters of white spines. 

Lion's mane is mostly cultivated in China and other parts of Asia. It was originally used for medicine in traditional Chinese practice where they would add it to teas. Lion's mane (or Hou tou gu) was consumed historically to help with brain function and gut health, some even claiming it would fight off certain cancers. It is said to have cognitive-enhancing abilities to highten focus, memory, and concentration. Buddhist monks would often use this mushroom for energizing their minds and having more focus for meditation.
