Psilocybe Cyanescens


The scientific name of the wavy-cap, Psilocybe cyanescens, may cause misunderstanding. Although each two-part scientific name is unique, the species epithet might apply to numerous unrelated species. It’s similar to a first name in that manner; while only a few people have the same full name—say, John Rawlings—some first names are shared by many people.

There are numerous persons named John who have nothing in common. The word “cyanescens” means “becoming blue,” and it is the species name for both the wavy-cap, Psilocybe cyanescens, and The Blue Meanie, Panaeolus cyanescens. Both turn blue when bruised. Both are psychotropic, but they are from completely distinct species.

But things get worse. “Blue meanie” is the colloquial name for Panaeolus cyanescens, as well as a cultivated type of Psilocybe cubensis bred and sold for its hallucinogenic qualities.

So Blue Meanie (Panaeolus cyanescens), Wavy-Cap (Psilocybe cyanescens), and Psilocybe cubensis “Blue Meanie” are all unique species, and while they all contain psilocybin, their potency varies drastically, requiring different doses.
Beware, psychonauts.

Buy Dried Psilocybe Cyanescens Online

Dried Psilocybe Cyanescens, also known as the Buy Wavy Cap Mushrooms or powerful psilocybe, is a psychedelic mushroom. Psilocybin and psilocin are the primary chemicals responsible for its psychedelic effects. It is a member of the Hymenogastraceae family.

Elsie Wakefield published a formal description of the species in the Transactions of the British Mycological Society in 1946, based on a specimen she had recently obtained at Kew Gardens. She had started collecting the species in 1910.

Adults are not thought to be physically threatened by the fungus. Because all of the psychoactive components in P. cyanescens are water-soluble, parboiling can render the fruiting bodies non-psychoactive, allowing them to be used in cooking.

However, because most people find them extremely bitter and they are too little to have much nutritional benefit, this is not done very often. Psilocybe cyanescens may produce massive amounts of fruit; more than 100,000 individual mushrooms were discovered growing in a single patch at an English racecourse.

Dried Psilocybe Cyanescens Identification and Description

  • Cap: Small to medium-sized, becoming almost flat with age except for the usually wavy margins. Brown when young, becoming yellowish or buff with age. Bruises blue. Thin. Smooth, sticky when wet, older specimens are brittle.
  • Gills: Brownish when young, becoming darker with age. Edges are pale.  In very young specimens, the gills are covered by a webby sheet of tissue called a veil. This tears off as the cap expands.
  • Stem: Longish, thin, sometimes thicker at the base, smooth, white, bruises blue. After the veil tears, its remnants form a subtle ring zone on the stem.
  • Spores: Elliptical and smooth.
  • Spore color: Purple-gray to purple-brown.
  • Edibility: Psychoactive
  • Habitat: Eats and fruits from woody debris, leaf litter, and wood chips such as those used in landscaping. Sometimes fruits in clumps.
  • Range: In North America, most common in California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, though sometimes present in the east as well. Common in Europe, though probably not native there.

The wavy-margined cap, as well as the mushroom’s ability to stain blue, are distinguishing characteristics. Because this species shares its habitat with the appropriately named The Deadly Galerina (Galerina marginata), it’s vital to examine the spore print color while gathering for ingestion. The spores of the latter are reddish-brown rather than purple-brown.


Wavy-cap is a “LBM,” or tiny brown mushroom, a wide group of generally unrelated species that can be difficult to distinguish without paying close attention to the features. The group contains the majority of psychoactive species, a few noteworthy culinary species, and a few dangerous, even lethal-toxic species.

Other Psychoactives

Psilocybes [v] are the closest relatives to wavy-cap.These either lack the distinctive wavy edge that other wavy-caps develop or do not share the same habitat. Most have further, subtler changes, particularly in older specimens.

However, younger representatives of all of these species may seem extremely similar. While all of these psychoactive species are reasonably harmless, knowing which is which is vital since potency varies—sometimes considerably.

Psychoactive species in numerous other genera, such as Panaeolus, have similar appearances but can be distinguished by paying close attention to detail.

Culinary Mushrooms

Culinary mushrooms are those that humans consume just for their flavor. Several honey mushroom species (such as Armillaria Mellea) and Enokitake (Flammulina velutipes) are well-known delicacies in the LBM group. For those looking for mushrooms that do more than just taste nice, they have white spore-prints.

Dangerous and Deadly Look-Alikes

The worst thing you could do is eat a Deadly Galerina (Galerina marginata) or one of the other LBMs that contain the same toxin[vii]. People who do this usually die, albeit immediate medical intervention can save their lives. There are undoubtedly LBMs that are toxic but not lethal.

Deadly Galerina lacks the wavy-cap’s trademark waves, but it is the same color—the base of the stem is black, not blue, but wishful thinking on the side of a psychonaut can easily make the black look blue.
Spore color varies, but just slightly.

Because both eat wood, their habitats are similar, if not overlapping. In fact, the psychotropic and the lethal can grow just next to each other, looking to be from the same flush. When gathering for eating, it is critical to positively identify every single species.

Buy Wavy Cap Mushrooms Effects & Experience

Wavy-cap has the same hallucinogenic components as other Psilocybes, most notably psilocybin. The effects of consuming all of these mushrooms are thus fairly similar, except that because potency varies, so does dose.

The high normally starts between 20 and 30 minutes after consumption and lasts between six and fifteen hours, though more than eight hours is exceptional. These mushrooms are famed for being hallucinogenic—and they are, especially at higher doses—but users may value changed mood and thought patterns more.

Changed thought patterns, often known as “psychosis,” can provide crucial personal and spiritual insights. Euphoria is widespread, although it is not assured. Psilocybin is frequently described as an intensifier, enhancing whatever mindset the person had prior to the trip, whether positive or negative.Anxiety, which can be severe at times, is the most prevalent major adverse effect (see note under Toxicity).

Psilocybin (and the mushrooms that contain it) is occasionally used in high dosages to increase intensity, although this is not the only option. It can also be taken in such small dosages (“microdoses”) that hallucinations are avoided and the user can go about his or her everyday activities normally, experiencing merely a modest shift in mood and a more insightful state of mind.

Some people consume Psilocybe mushrooms primarily for recreational purposes, while others seek spiritual or even medical benefits. The benefits of psilocybin use include relief from anxiety, sadness, migraine headaches, and other symptoms, while scientific study has only hinted that some of these benefits may be true. None have yet been confirmed.

Wavy Cap Mushrooms Dosage & Potency

The wavy-cap’s potency varies considerably (some writers classify it as multiple species), with North American specimens being among the most potent psychedelic mushrooms known. As a rough estimate, the dosage will be little more than half that of the more well-known Psilocybe cubensis.

However, dose varies across individual mushrooms of the same species and group, and human sensitivity to psilocybin varies as well. Of course, not every user want the same degree of pleasure every time, so how much a person takes is also determined by what they want to happen.

As a result, dosage recommendations can only ever be considered as guidelines. Because negative reactions are more common with higher doses, it’s preferable to err on the side of too little than too much. Having said that, if you want to try and find a dose that works for you, consult our general magic mushroom dosage guide.

You can also use our magic mushroom dosage calculator, which allows you to select from six dosage levels, including microdose and heroic dose. Lemon Tek and Shroom Tea are two popular ways to consume Psilocybe cyanescens.

Growing Psilocybe Cyanescens

Indoor wavy-cap cultivation is tough. Although the species adapts well to most common substrate types, colonization is sluggish (up to eight weeks depending on substrate) and fruiting requires careful temperature adjustment. Protecting and caring for a wild patch is often a better bet than growing bunches indoors.

Growing VS. Buying Psilocybe cyanescens Online

Wavy-cap can be purchased commercially. It can also be grown in the house. Either way, there will be consequences. One issue with purchasing material is that the seller may not know what they are selling. A fast online search for “buying Psilocybe cyanescens” turns up sites selling “Psilocybe cyanescens truffles.”

This species does not produce truffles, but Panaeolus cyanescens and certain other Psilocybes do.It’s unknown what these sites are actually selling, or what other incidents of misidentification or misrepresentation may exist.

How certain are you that the merchant did not collect some Deadly Galerina from the wild? A less scary, but nonetheless unpleasant, scenario is that the material is old. Wavy-cap is especially prone to losing some of its legendary strength when in storage.

Clearly, finding a reliable buyer is essential when purchasing magic mushrooms. Without one, growing at home becomes quite appealing, even if wavy-cap is tough to grow indoors, and success is likely to generate far more than a person can use fast, implying that some of the harvest will lose potency in storage.

Both choices are illegal under US federal law and most state laws. Other countries’ laws differ. Those who want to risk breaching the law should assess both the specifics of the law in their local jurisdiction and what they want to gain from the transaction.

For example, in some places, buying spores is legal while growing them out is not, implying that growing at home, while still illegal, may be marginally safer than buying.

Having an illicit mushroom grow in progress at home for months on end, on the other hand, may be more concerning than purchasing a couple of mushrooms and consuming them straight immediately.

It’s a matter of opinion. Although doing neither and wild-harvesting is arguably a better alternative. Just make certain that the identifier is correct. Dying from amanitin poisoning is a worse journey than going to prison.

Psilocybe Cyanescens Toxicity & Safety

The legislation is, without a question, the most dangerous aspect of eating wavy-cap (assuming it IS wavy-cap). A drug conviction can completely devastate a person’s life in various jurisdictions.

Psilocybin is relatively safe in that use has resulted in few, if any, fatalities. Its use, however, is not without risk. Nausea is the most common unpleasant side effect.

Anxiety is also very common and can be intense—though the likelihood of having an anxious trip can be lowered by only consuming mushrooms in a relaxed, joyful state and in a safe, tranquil environment. More dangerous reactions, such as convulsions, can occur in rare cases.

It’s worth mentioning that the sensory distortions and strange thoughts sought by psychonauts are a severe problem for anyone who didn’t mean to trip. In that respect, wavy-cap is a deadly fungus; it’s just that some individuals enjoy its specific type of intoxication, assuming they can prepare for it.

It’s also worth remembering that being inebriated increases the danger of all kinds of mishaps, even if everything goes smoothly biochemically. People who wish to consume wavy cap can ensure their own safety by:

  1. Avoiding legal problems
  2. Preparing mentally and physically for the experience (and emotionally processing the experience afterwards)
  3. Taking a relatively low dose, at least the first few times, and never over-dosing
  4. Having a sober friend present in case anxiety comes up or in case any practical challenges arise that are difficult to handle while tripping.
