Psilocybe Cyanescens For Sale | Panaeolus Cyanescens | Psilocybe
Psilocybe cyanescens, commonly known in the UK as the Blueleg Brownie and in the USA as Wavy Caps, is usually found growing on rotting woodchip mulch. Increasingly frequent in southern Britain and apparently spreading northwards, Psilocybe cyanescens is probably an introduced species from North America; however, the type specimen was described from woodchip mulch beds at the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew, in London UK. This species is now also recorded in many parts of western and central mainland Europe as well as in Australia.
Trippy Mushroom | Magic ShroomS | Psilocybe Cyanescens
The main compounds responsible for its psychedelic effects are psilocybin and psilocin.
Psilocybe cyanescens has a hygrophanous pileus (cap) that is caramel to chestnut-brown when moist, fading to pale buff or slightly yellowish when dried. Caps generally measure from 1.5–5 cm (½” to 2″) across, and are normally distinctly wavy in maturity. The color of the pileus is rarely seen in mushrooms outside of the panaeolus cyanescens species complex. Most parts of the mushroom, including the cap and Lamellae (gills, underneath the cap) can stain blue when touched or otherwise disturbed, probably due to the oxidation of psilocin. The lamellae are adnate, and light brown to dark purple brown in maturity, with lighter gill edges. There is no distinct annulus, but immature P. cyanescens specimens do have a cobwebby veil which may leave an annular zone in maturity. Both the odor and taste are farinaceous.
