Psilocybe Cubensis Blue Meanie. 1 per order
DO NOT CONFUSE WITH PANAEOLUS! “Blue Meanie” is a name applied to at least two different mushrooms. One is a strain of Psilocybe cubensis. The other is the species Panaeolus cyanescens which is consider the “real” Blue Meanie. Both are psychoactive and sometimes used recreationally or medicinally, but it’s important not to confuse the two (though be careful, as some writers do mix them up). For one thing, Panaeolus cyanescens is dramatically more potent and therefor requires different dosing guidelines. This is Blue Meanie, the P. cubensis strain[i].
There are many cultivated strains of P. cubensis, some of them collected from the wild and some developed by growers. Blue Meanie is thought to be one of the former, having been collected from Australia. It does, indeed, bruise bluish if handled, but it’s not especially mean (it’s also not at all Meanie-like, a reference those who have seen the movie, Yellow Submarine, will understand).
