The present invention is a novel and enhanced co-fermentation product of hemp and cannabis, in which 1 part by weight shredded or divided hemp stems, leaves and flowers are admixed into a slurry with at least one part by weight up to two parts by weight water and the slurry is sterilized prior to inoculation with solid or liquid mycelium culture. After inoculation, fermentation takes place at 66-70 degrees F. for 14-28 days, followed by drying of the fermented admixture at 110-165 degrees F. for 24-48 hours, prior to co-minuting or powdering the dried end product for incorporation in oral dosage forms such as pressed tablets, manufactured capsules or powder or as an ingredient in functional foods. By following these method steps including the initial creation of aqueous hemp slurry with the prescribed ratio ranges of water, both hemp and mushroom component conversions occur to an unexpected degree.
