Panaeolus cyanescens effect
Panaeolus Cyanescens is a potent psychedelic mushroom that is known for its’ higher psilocybin contents and intense visual trips. According to American mycologist and mushroom expert Paul Stamets, Panaeolus Cyanscens are regarded as the 4th most potent strain of magic mushrooms ever grown on planet earth, with many reports indicating that they are 3-7 times more potent than a Psilocybe Cubensis. One of the unusual traits of this unique strain of mushrooms is that it contains serotonin and higher levels of psilocin, which would describe its’ smooth experience with less physical discomfort and confusion, and more of a smooth, relaxed and blissful trip. The higher concentrations of psilocin also result in this mushroom strain having stronger, more lucid and vivid visual stimulations and extremely strong feelings of euphoria. A highly cerebral strain of mushrooms, Panaeolus Cyanscens have a psychedelic experience that is more clear-headed and less ‘foggy’ or ‘drunk’ feeling than average Psilocybe Cubensis strains.
