Psilocybe azurescens is a very potent species full of psilocybin and psilocin. This underground growing relative of the Psilocybe Cyanescens Magic Mushroom should be handled with great respect. The strength of this Truffle spiece may not be under estimated. The psychedelic trip you will experience with this truffle could be compared with a trip of the infamous Panaeolus (Copelandia) Cyanescens Magic Mushroom. You will enjoy great and fantastic visions, make sure you are with good people who are enjoying life at your level.
Psilocybe azurescens is a psychedelic mushroom that contains the active compounds psilocybin and psilocin. This species is among the most potent magic mushrooms in the world because it contains up to 1.8% psilocybin, 0.5% psilocin, and 0.4% baeocystin by dry weight. With such a high amount of psychoactive compounds, Psilocybe azurescens can bring more intense visuals compared to other hallucinogenic mushrooms causing it to be one of the all-time favorite mushrooms among psychonauts.
Psilocybe azurescens grows in tight, separated clusters on wood chips or in sandy soils rich in woody debris in late September until early January. This fungus has a tendency to grow on coastal dune grasses. Wherever it chooses to grow, it cause the whitening of wood.
This species grows naturally in coastal dune grasses along a small area of the United States’ West Coast. It has also been seen in Depoe Bay, Oregon, and as far north as Grays Harbor County, Washington. Some wild specimens have also been reported in Stuttgart, Germany.
Psilocybe azurescens has been cultivated in Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United States.
Psilocybe azurescens are often referred to by a variety of common names: Azzies, Astoriensis, Flying Saucers, Blue Runners, Blue Angels, or Indigo Psilocybe. With their caramel coloured caps, bright white stems, and broad umbo (the “nipple-like” structure in the centre of the cap), Azurescens are quite distinctive in appearance, once you “get your eye in.” To the untrained eye, many Psilocybes can look like any other LBM’s (little brown mushrooms) hiding amongst the undergrowth. The general advice is to know the features of the species you are looking for, but also the ones you are not. Members of the genus Galerina, for example, can be deadly, and many other lookalikes can be poisonous.
psilocybe azurescens cultivation
When creating a magic mushroom patch for Psilocybe azurescens, the first thing to consider is lighting. In general, most mushrooms require indirect sunlight. This also applies in the case of magic mushrooms. Therefore, when picking a spot for your magic mushroom patch, try picking one that has a lot of light during the day but that is not exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
If you can’t use your backyard (because of your nosy neighbors), then you should choose a site that is not too far away to walk daily. If it’s too far, you’d run the risk of missing out on a potential harvest because the patch will require daily checking during the harvest period.
Psilocybe azurescens are best cultivated in areas where grass and shrub meet the forest because they offer easy access and environmental factors which can help them thrive. If you can’t find ideal environment such as this one, then a moist patch of land with dabbled sunlight will do just fine.
