THESE SPORES ARE SOLD FOR MICROSCOPY USE ONLY. THEY ARE NOT INTENDED FOR CULTIVATION PURPOSES!!! NO SPORES TO CA, GA, or ID STATES. YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE AND YOU MUST AGREE 100% WITH OUR GENERAL DISCLAMER TO PURCHASE ANY OF THESE SPORES.Psilocybe azurescens is among the most potent of the tryptamine-bearing mushrooms, containing up to 1.8% psilocybin, 0.5% psilocin, and 0.4% baeocystin by dry weight, averaging to about 1.1% psilocybin and 0.15% psilocin.
"Like Psilocybe cyanescens (Wakefield), the "Wavy Cap" known from Britain and US., it needs a few weeks of cold (near freezing weather for fruiting), and seems to feed on any kind of wood, cardboard or similar. Mycelium and fruiting bodies are strongly bluing and the latter have an entheogenic potency, which was described as 'at least twice that of Ps. cub.' and 'not weaker than Ps. semilanc.' after comparisons with dried and weighed samples. The caps of Ps. cy. A. O., which easily grow bigger than 3" in dia, are often distinctly umbonate and rarely wavy, and there is other hints, that it may just as well be a species closely related to, but not identical with Psilocybe cyanescens."
Azurescens require cold weather near freezing to fruit as well as a wood substrate. Often outdoor beds using colonized woodchips and sawdust (not containing bark) are made in the spring and then fruits can be expected during winter when cultivation is attempted.
This species should only be studied by advanced mycologists.
*Cultivation of this species is illegal in the United States*
