Psychoactive mushrooms are a very specific group of organisms
Psychoactive mushrooms owe their characteristic properties primarily to psilocybin, which is one of the main chemical compounds contained in their natural composition. It is its presence that makes the cultivation, possession and sale of hallucinogens illegal in Poland. National regulations, however, do not apply to the spores of mushrooms in this group themselves, as they do not contain psilocybin at this stage of development. For this reason, you can legally buy them from our online store Shroom.it, where we offer high-quality mycelium for hobby and research purposes.
Psilocybin is a natural chemical compound that, when delivered to the body, transforms into pharmacologically active psilocybin. There are also other substances with hallucinogenic properties in psychedelic mushrooms. The sensations after their ingestion focus in various ways on changing the perception of time, space, colors or sounds. These mushrooms can induce mild visual hallucinations, including the perception and experience of physically non-existent phenomena. Hallucinogens also raise the intensity of various sensations during direct interaction with the environment. According to specialists, the substances in them do not cause mental or physical dependence. However, improper or long-term use of psychedelic mushrooms causes some side effects, including various unpleasant experiences. This risk is increased especially if they are consumed together with alcohol or other psychoactive substances.
According to current research, a number of environmental factors influence the specificity and intensity of experiences after consuming psychedelic mushrooms. Both the age, emotional state or personality of the user and the dose taken are important. Psylocybin mushrooms are currently illegal in Poland, but over the millennia they have found their use in many cultures around the world. Ancient civilizations used them to achieve altered states of consciousness, pursue self-discovery, induce euphoria or experience spiritual experiences. Psychedelic mushrooms are characterized by varying levels of psychoactive substances, so it is impossible to predict unequivocally the potential length and type of sensations achieved after their consumption.
Psychoactive mushrooms are found in the environment of various regions of the world. Many species can be easily mistaken for ones that have no hallucinogenic properties or are not even suitable for consumption. Cases of their inadvertent consumption are rare, however, as potential collectors are aware of the morphological similarities between different mushrooms. Mycology enthusiasts are recommended growkits offered in our store, which are kits containing a substrate overgrown with mycelium. On the territory of Poland you can legally possess them, provided that the fruiting bodies do not develop. Their use is therefore limited to collecting and microscopic observations.
Hallucinogenic mushrooms can usually be recognized by their brownish or grayish-white coloration. Their peculiar caps and slender stems are also characteristic features. In Poland, the most commonly found is the lanceolate coot, which prefers temperate climates and often grows in areas occupied by pastures, meadows, orchards, fields, forests or roadsides. These mushrooms are mainly found in open and wet areas, overgrown with grasses and mosses. Psychoactive compounds are also contained in the Cuban coot, or psilocibe cubensis. In our assortment you will find growkits containing its different varieties.
The spores sold by our Shroom.it store are available in full compliance with the law, as they do not contain psilocybin and other substances not legalized in Poland. For this reason, they are an excellent part of mycological education. Our company has many years of experience in the industry, as well as extensive office and production space and specialized equipment - including a laminar chamber, pressure autoclave or air sterilizers.
