Blue Meanies grow in many tropical areas, including Malaysia, India, and Australia. In Ideal conditions, these mushrooms have an alkaloid content of 0.13% to 0.38%.
Why Are They Called Blue Meanies?
When psilocybin comes in contact with air, it oxidizes and turns into another chemical. The chemical reaction gives the mushrooms a blue tint. Since Blue Meanies are known for their potency in terms of psilocybin, they many seem bluer than others.
Mycologists are not sure why Blue Meanies are so potent when it comes to psilocybin. They assumed that fruiting temperature caused changes in the levels of active compounds, but further studies showed this was incorrect. Several factors contribute to potency levels, such as genetics and environmental conditions of the mushroom itself (soil conditions, etc.).
The body is between 2 and 6 inches tall, growing in clusters on dead hardwood trees. The cap has a diameter between 0.5 and 1 inch wide. It is first light yellow or white before quickly turning dark blue, ochre, or purplish-grey. The stem is long, thin, and brown/white colored with hairs just below the cap.
Each package comes with a 10ml Luer lock syringe. The spores are placed under aseptic conditions with sterilized water before being filled into the syringe. The syringe is then sealed tightly with a cap. You will also receive a sterilized 18 gauge needle that’s 1.5 inches long. The needle has a Luer-lock tip so it can be attached to the syringe for easy transferring of spores.
Cultivation of mushrooms containing psilocybin is illegal in the United States. These spores are sold for microscopy and forensic purposes only. Any other use is strictly forbidden by law. As of this writing, only a few species are exempt from this rule, and Blue Meanies are not one of them.
