Psilocybe azurescens Magic Mushrooms

Psilocybe azurescens: Background

Psilocybe azurescens magic mushrooms were originally discovered in the Pacific northwest of the USA in the late ’70’s. Named for the blue bruising that is often seen on the stem, they are known for their particular potency triggering quite intense experiences. Consumers speak to a sense that they are entering a different state of consciousness, particularly vivid visuals, and even short-term paralysis. They are not recommended for consumption by inexperienced consumers!

Psilocybe azurescens: Habitat

Psilocybe azurescens magic mushrooms are generally not common and only seem to propagate well in their natural environment, the wet and cool climate of the Pacific northwest.
