Spores of Psilocybe cubensis
The spores of Psilocybe cubensis are the reproductive cells of this interesting fungal species. The natural process of their development takes place in special closed structures called spores
The sporesof Psilocybe cubensis are in the form of small unicellular structures that assume an oblong or ellipsoidal shape. Due to their unique microscopic features, they form the basis for identifying fungi of this species. In Poland, it is not allowed to grow them, due to their content of psilocybin, which has psychoactive effects. However, it is not present in the Psilocybe cubensis mycelium itself, which is a frequent object of mycologists' research and microbiological observations. In our online store Shroom.it we offer plants, seeds, but also growkits containing different varieties of this species. Their purchase is fully legal, provided no fruiting bodies are formed. Also legal are liquid cultures of selected strains, which you will also find in our assortment.
Psilocybe cubensis is a species also known as Cuban coot, which belongs to the mushroom group. Due to its coprophilousness, it naturally thrives on animal feces. Most often, their colonization takes place on the dung of larger herbivores, making them found around cow, sheep or goat pastures. This is largely due to the low stomach acid content of the feces of these animals, which contributes to facilitated germination. The spores of these fungi prefer humid areas, but can also develop in tropical or subtropical environments. Depending on the variety, Psilocybe cubensis can be found in Ecuador, Colombia, Thailand, Cambodia, India or Argentina, among others. In fact, these mushrooms can be found on virtually all continents, except Antarctica.
Psilocybe cubensis are saprotrophic fungi, so they are classified as adulterous organisms and extract energy from organic remains by breaking them down into simple compounds. The mycelium produced by each variety is highly rhizomorphic. In our online store you will find growkits containing their mycelium. These are: Golden Teacher, B+, Malabar, Mazatapec, McKenaii, Ecuadorian, Colombian, Cambodian, Thai or Mexican. Their spores are characterized by smooth and thick-walled imprints, and can be dark brown or almost black in color. Mature specimens of Psilocybe cubensis attract attention with their veil, which has a tannish surface. As the spores fall, the thin and delicate ring on the stalk darkens.
You can legally buy and store Psilocybe cubensis spores. This means that the mycelium products we offer are fully legal. The only condition is that the fruiting bodies in which psilocybe cubensis is present do not develop. Therefore, the spores must not be mixed with sterilized seeds, which would lead to the formation of fruiting bodies. Psilocybe cubensis is a species classified as a psychedelic mushroom, as they contain active substances with hallucinogenic properties. At the same time, it is worth remembering that their cultivation is permitted in some countries. This is the case, for example, in Brazil, whose regulations allow for self-cultivation. However, before taking any action, it is worth carefully checking the current regulations in your country.
We are the longest functioning growkit store in Poland, as we have been operating continuously since 2016. Our company has a properly adapted hall and the necessary equipment, so we can produce our own kits with full control over the entire process - including the selection of the right genes. Among the growkits we produce is Malabar. We import other mycelium from safe and proven sources. We currently have 250 m2 of production, office and warehouse space. We have dedicated refrigerated cabinets, a pressure autoclave, a laminar chamber or air sterilizers, as well as a special room for incubating mycelium at the right temperature. We also offer all the necessary accessories. All these aspects are not without influence on the quality of the products we offer, as well as trouble-free service. We encourage you to check our current offer, as well as to contact our specialists and shop at the Shroom.it online store.
