The Psilocybe azurescens magic mushroom is considered the strongest mushroom to be discovered by humankind. So if you’re looking for an extreme trip (or for your dollar to go a long way) this is the shroom for YOU.
The Psilocybe azurescens is most potent psychedelic magic mushroom discovered to date. Meaning a trip will hold very intense visual hallucinations compared to other types of psilocybe.
These mushrooms are some of the most unique looking ones out there. The caps are massive and can actually grow to be 10cm in diameter. That’s about the size of your palm. The colour is beautiful too as they can be an ochre-caramel colour. You’ll fall in love with the effects and the appearance!
And although this is the strongest psychedelic mushroom out there, it is the worst tasting one due to the higher psilocybin content. 1.78% psilocybin per dry 1g so if your mushroom weighs 1g then you are getting 17.8mg of psilocybin. That is a wackload.
To give you a better visual of how strong these are let’s refer and compare the average psilocybin amounts to the more common cubensis. The azurescens contains 1.78% psilocybin and the cubensis (like a Golden Teacher) contains 0.63%. That is close to 3 times more which makes it 3 times stronger. If you want to take a trip to outer space all you have to do is eat 5g of the Psilocybe azurescens mushrooms.
This variety of mush grow most commonly in areas with wood chips or sandy soils between September and January. So, although we’ll try to keep these in-stock all year round, chances are they’ll be sold out all summer. You can definitely stock up and store them in the fridge though!

Psilocybe azurescens Effect #1: Artistic, Scientific, and Philosophical Creation
Artists and other creative individuals have often reported using psychedelic substances in an effort to enhance creative output or novelty.
Plato’s theory of creative inspiration directly credited the possession of the artist by the Muse or other gods; the artist lost their own mind or self and entered a poetic “fury” or “frenzy” during which a higher force created through them (McMahon, 2013; Murray, 1996; Pieper, 1964). Plato even went so far as to directly compare the frenzy of artistic creation with the cultist rites of Dionysus, where participants were similarly filled with (prob- ably substance-induced) ecstasy and enthusiasm.
William Blake provides an excellent (if more modern) example: Blake’s poetry and painting are all but unimaginable absent the visionary altered states that inspired them (Bloom, 1963). The loss of the sense of self in visionary states is in many ways reminiscent of core and peak psychedelic experiences, dis- cussed in more detail below.
Psilocybe azurescens Effect #2: Daydreaming and Dreaming
Dreaming is a more familiar example of a bizarre visionary experience that each of us participates in every night and thus is easier to relate to when speaking about psychedelic experiences. There are many parallels between dreaming and daydreaming with psychedelic experience. Including immersive visual imagery, highly novel and unusual patterns of thinking, intense emotional experience, and a disrupted sense of self/ridding of the Ego.
