Psilocybe Azurescens is widely known in the mycology world for being the most potent mushroom species in existence. The species was first discovered in 1979 by a group of Boy Scouts, camping close to the mouth of the Columbia River in Oregon, however it was not officially classified until 1995. Mycologists Paul Stamets and his colleague Jochen Gartz formally described and named Psilocybe azurescens after Stamets’ son Azureus, who had in turn been named after “Azure,” the bluish color that psilocybin-containing mushrooms bruise when damaged.

One of the most interesting facts about Azurescens (and other "wood-loving" Psilocybe species) is that consumption can often result in temporary paralysis. It's hypothesized that this effect is due to Aeruginascin, a compound produced by Azurescen mushrooms that is very similar to psilocybin, but has an extra methyl group. IF Aeruginascin is dephosphorylated by the body in a similar fashion to how psilocybin is dephosphorylated (this is not known), this would result in the compound bufotenidine, which is known to cause paralysis.

Spores Lab acquired our Psilocybe Azurescens genetic (in the format of a wild mushrooms spore print) at the beginning of 2021, and we have been hard at work for the last few months isolating and refining the genetic to prepare it for sale. It now possesses qualities such as dense, rhizomorphic mycelial growth, and above-average colonization speed, however it is still a slower colonizer than Psilocybe Cubensis (the most commonly grown magic mushroom species), and is notably more difficult to fruit indoors.

Spawning Psilocybe Azurescens mycelium can be done in a similar fashion to Cubensis (rye, wheat, oat, corn or other grains can be used) however Psilocybe Azurescens require the addition of ligneous material (wood) to the substrate in order to fruit. You must add hardwood chips or sawdust to your substrate, and fruiting must be done in cooler conditions (between 10-18C). Typically this species yields less than Cubensis and is quite difficult to cultivate indoors, however has much higher potency.
