Explore The Various Forms Of Psilocybin Magic MushroomsErica Smith
It brings back memories of picking liberty caps from farmers’ fields when I was a teenager and the thought of magic mushrooms. Liberty caps gave me a terrific free buzz when I realised they were also mind-expanding. What initially consisted of laughing about and having a good time later became more spiritual activities.
Two decades later, the world of magic mushrooms has become nearly as complex as understanding the world of cannabis education. The use of shrooms, sometimes known as “magic mushrooms,” as a treatment for mental health issues like depression and headaches is gaining popularity. As you can see, it’s not only a matter of liberty caps anymore. There are a significant number of variations and classifications of magic mushrooms.
The Golden Teachers are a type of psilocybin widely regarded as both powerful and gentle, making them one of the most sought-after varieties of magic mushrooms available today. People searching for a psilocybin experience that is more intense frequently seek out a kind of magic mushroom known as Penis Envy for its suggestive shape. These are extremely powerful and significantly more effective than Golden Teachers.
Different Magic Mushrooms
Exploring the culture further will reveal a wealth of additional variants, such as the Cambodian, Malabar Coast, Blue Magnolia Rust, and Panama, to name just a few. Here are some types includes:
- Psilocybe semilanceata often called Liberty Caps
- Psilocybe cubensis, most commonly referred to as Golden Teachers
- Psilocybe Mexicana is also called “Conical Caps.”
- Psilocybe cyanescens, sometimes known as Wavy Caps,
- Psilocybe azurescens, also known as Flying Saucer Mushrooms
- Psilocybe baeocystis, also known as bluebells, bottle caps, knobby tops and olive caps
Let’s examine each magic mushroom variety.
The vast brown leathery caps of the Psilocybe semilanceata mushrooms, typically linked to curving stems, give the species its reputation for potency. When the stem or cap is broken or removed, the 15–27 narrow gills underneath the cap immediately become blue. This fungus grows in North America and Europe.
Magic mushrooms of the genus Psilocybe cubensis are the most widely used species in the world. This type of magic mushroom has a vast cap, up to 80mm in diameter, and can be found in the United States, Southeast Asia, Central America, and the northern part of South America. Mushrooms of this type have a flatter top as they age. The mature gills of a Psilocybe cubensis mushroom are closely spaced and dark black. When the cap or stem is broken or removed from this magic mushroom, the fungus inside turns bluish-purple.
The indigenous peoples of South and Central America have relied on the psilocybe Mexicana mushroom for generations. Psilocybe Mexicana mushrooms have a 10-20mm conical or bell-shaped cap, similar to semilanceata types. This magic mushroom is usually a beige colour with green or blue tones. However, it rapidly changes colour to blue if it is shattered.
Psilocybe cyanescens mushrooms are produced worldwide, from North America to New Zealand to Central and Western Europe and even the Middle East. Their wavy caps range in size from 15 to 50 mm. These mushrooms have a brown caramel-like colour that fades as they dry up. All parts of these mushrooms, including the stems, cap, and gills, quickly oxidise to a bluish colour when handled roughly. This mushroom grows in mulch plant beds, which has led to an expansion in its growing areas.
Magic mushrooms of the Psilocybe azurescens are widely regarded as among the most potent in the world. They are found naturally only in a small, isolated region on the West coast of the US. Large caps that resemble a saucer give this variety of magic mushrooms its common name. When fully developed, the cap of these mushrooms flatten and take on a caramel brown colour with black and blue tones. In addition, this type of mushroom’s gills are dark, and the stems are white, but they tend to become blue when injured.
The Psilocybe baeocystis
Psilocybe baeocystis is a mushroom that is typically cultivated in the Pacific Northwest. It has a cap in the shape of a cone and is thin and rippled. Mushrooms of this type often have caps measuring between 15mm to 55mm in diameter, and they have a dark greenish brown colour with bright bluegills. The stems of these magical mushrooms can be either straight or bent, and they typically have a white colour.
US Magic Mushroom Laws
There are still many places in the United States where you cannot legally purchase magic mushrooms. However, that’s changing. In the state of Oregon, the possession and use of magic mushrooms are not illegal, and similar laws have been passed in several other states and cities, including Washington, DC. The legality of magic mushrooms varies widely across the United States. Everything you need to grow these mushrooms at home may be bought legally. In most countries, it is illegal to combine these substances to create your magic mushrooms. For instance, in Oklahoma, where I currently reside, I can get syringes containing spores from a wide range of psilocybin mushrooms. Nothing I could do with them would be allowed by law.
Despite being a DEA Schedule I regulated substance, several towns and states have banned its use in some regions. Depending on the state, it may be wholly legalised, or enforcement may be a low priority. The states that have passed psilocybin laws as of December 2021 are listed below.
- In Oakland and Santa Cruz, California, psilocybin law enforcement is defunded and a low priority.
- Colorado – Denver has eliminated funding for law enforcement agencies concerned with psilocybin and placed it at the bottom of their list of priorities for law enforcement.
- New Jersey reduced psilocybin penalties.
- New Hampshire and New Mexico passed psychedelic exceptions.
- Oregon – Completely legalised, regulated, and decriminalised through legislation.
- Texas & Connecticut are researching medical use.
- Washington – Port Townsend and Seattle have assigned it the lowest possible priority in terms of law enforcement.
Many states are working on psychedelics legislation, including Florida, Missouri, Rhode Island, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, New York, Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont.
Cannabis has been getting a lot of attention recently, but plenty of other natural chemicals are waiting to be discovered for their health benefits.
