Spores of hallucinogenic mushrooms
The spores of hallucinogenic mushrooms function as their reproductive cells
The spores of hallucinogenic mushrooms do not differ significantly from the reproductive cells of other species. In the case of psilocybe cubensis, they take the form of single-celled structures with an ellipsoid or oblong shape. However, these spores have some specific microscopic features that make it possible to identify particular varieties of psilocybe cubensis. Their cultivation is not allowed in Poland, which is due to the presence of a psychoactive substance called psilocybin. However, this substance is not found in the mycelium of psilocybe cubensis, so mycologists and researchers can possess it and make microbiological observations without fear. Growkits with different varieties of this species can be found in the offer of our online store Shroom.it, and their possession is fully legal as long as the fruiting bodies do not form. The same is true for vials with liquid mycelial culture.
Hallucinogenic mushrooms of the psilocybe cubensis species belong to the mushroom family and are coprophilous, and thus in nature they live in animal dung. Their colonization very often takes place in areas occupied by pastures of large herbivores such as cows, goats and sheep. Spores of this variety develop in animal feces, since the low content of stomach acids speeds up and facilitates the germination process. These fungi are mainly found in humid areas, but are also found in subtropical and tropical zones. Depending on the variety, mushrooms of this species have been reported at least in Thailand, Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina and India. In practice, psilocybe cubensis can grow on any continent, except Antarctica.
While the spores of psilocybe cubensis themselves do not have many characteristics, fully developed hallucinosis can be identified by several parameters. These fungi belong to the group of saprotrophic adulterous organisms, which can extract energy from organic debris by decomposing it into simple compounds. In the case of individual varieties, the mycelium is distinctly rhizomorphic. Our online store Shroom.it offers growkits of many of them, including the popular Malabar, Golden Teacher, Mazatapec, B+, Ecuadorian, McKennaii, Thai, Cambodian, Mexican or Colombian variants. The spores of these varieties are usually dark brown in color, with thick-walled and smooth imprints. When mature, psilocybe cubensis is characterized by a tannish surface of the roux. There is a thin ring on the peduncle, which darkens when the reproductive cells fall.
Possession of hallucinogenic mushroom spores is not legal in Poland. You can, however, fully legally purchase mycelium products in our store that are free of them. We make all growkits available completely in accordance with national regulations. However, it is important to note that it is forbidden to take actions that lead to the actual development of psilocybe cubensis to produce psilocybin. This species is included in the hallucinogenic group precisely because it has active substances with psychedelic properties in its composition. In some countries around the world, the cultivation of psilocybe cubensis is legalized by law. However, regulations may look slightly different in each country, so it is always advisable to exercise caution and become well acquainted with the restrictions in place.
