Blue Meanie Mushrooms

Blue Meanie Mushrooms


Blue Meanies Magic Mushrooms are a potent strain of psilocybe cubensis. The name Blue Meanie is also used to describe a strain called Psilocybe Cyanescens (P. Cyans) which is known to be 2 times more potent than any other P. Cubensis strain. Our Blue Meanie Magic Mushrooms are of the P. Cubensis type and is not to be mistaken.

Blue Meanies Mushrooms: A Guide to the Potent Panaeolus cyanescens

“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. Here we’re going to talk about 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).

P.cubensis, and all its various strains, is what people usually mean by phrases like “shrooms” or “magic mushrooms.” It’s not the only hallucinogenic mushroom species around—there are dozens of others that likewise contain significant amounts of psilocybin, plus some of the Amanitas contain a very different psychoactive substance, moscimol—but it may be the most popular. It grows wild across much of the world and feeds on the dung of mammals (it can be cultivated on other substrates, though). Its fruiting bodies are typically medium-sized with light-brown caps and a webby partial veil that tears just before spore release. But there is a lot of natural variation in color, size, cap shape, and psilocybin concentration.

There is some debate about whether different strains produce different kinds of trip. Certainly, trip experiences vary widely, but at least part of that is due to variation in the biochemistry of the users, as well as the specifics of their set and setting. Some people say that a cube is a cube, and that while the strains differ from each other in potency, their trips have no consistent, recognizable character apart from their identity as P. cubensis.

Growing Blue Meanie Cubensis

Blue Meanie fruits prolifically, though the individual mushrooms are not especially large. Colonization time is relatively short. There are no particular guidelines for growing this strain, as it does well in all of the methods usually used for P. cubensis. The only caveat is that whatever method a grower users, it’s important to do the method properly. Follow the instructions. Hybrid methods or sloppiness usually yield poor results. Blue Meanie is considered one of the easier strains to grow.

Buying vs. Growing Blue Meanie Cubensis

Both buying and growing magic mushrooms like Blue Meanie Cubensis have their advantages and disadvantages.

Growing mushrooms is, per dose, dramatically cheaper[iv]. For the cost of a single dose online, it’s possible to produce several dozen doses at home. Growers who collect their own spores (the procedure is simple; just leave a mushroom un-harvested until it fully matures and then make a spore print) can keep growing the same strain indefinitely by buying only more substrate. Although there are strains that are hard to collect spores from, Blue Meanie is not one of them.

Buying is faster, simpler, and a much better option for people who really only want one or two doses (novices who don’t know if they’ll like psilocybin, for example).

There is also the issue of legal risk[v]. In some areas, personal use of psilocybin has been decriminalized, but possession is still illegal. That puts growing Psilocybes in murky legal territory, and growers could find themselves very much at the mercy of the court. For them, buying a dose or two at a time may simply make more sense.

Where psilocybin has not been decriminalized, users find themselves between the proverbial rock and a hard place. With the exception of some jurisdictions, Psilocybe spores are legal to buy, sell, and possess, since the spores do not contain psilocybin. That means it’s possible to buy everything necessary for a grow without breaking the law—until the moment the spores germinate. For users secure in their privacy, the opportunity to buy everything legally is a great help. However, growers do have large amounts of illegal materials on hand for weeks or months at a time, a situation that could be a lot riskier than having a single dose in the house for a day or two every so often.

There is also the issue of quality[vi]. Buying Psilocybes means trusting the supplier—that’s great if the supplier is trustworthy, but if one isn’t, the buyer cannot sue or otherwise do anything about it. Home growers know exactly what they’ve got.

This shroom is known to be a prolific fruiter, often growing many flushes and easily bruising (blueing) at the point of physical contact. Expect above average intensity compared to other cubensis shrooms strains.

The Blue Meanies cubensis is one of the most sought after strains by the amateur microscopy community as a result of its general hardiness and extremely potent educational opportunities. If you’re reading this page while it’s a spore strain we currently have in stock, we urge you to place your order quickly—these are quite possible.

In the meantime, let’s learn a little more about this strain. Just what makes it such a meanie?

Why is this Mushroom Strain Called The Blue Meanie Strain?

The Blue Meanie spore strain gets its name because of the properties of this fungi in the wild. As a psilocybin mushroom, the mature fruiting body contains a potent amount of the psychedelic compound in its flesh. Like most psilocybin mushrooms, when bruised, the Blue Meanie strain will display a colorful bruising—in this case, of course, it’s blue.

Some cubensis mushrooms will bruise green or purple. However, blue is an indication of a high psilocybin content; as you can imagine, Blue Meanies spores generate potency in this regard. The discoloration that occurs during bruising is because of a chemical reaction that occurs when psilocybin touches the air. You can learn more about psilocybin mushroom coloration and bruising in our article How to Identify Psilocybin Mushrooms.

How A Warm, Tropical Climate Makes for the Strong, Contaminant-Resistant Fungi Genetics Seen in the Blue Meanie Strain

The Blue Meanies strain originates in southeastern Australia. If you’ve ever been there, you already know that this is a very warm, tropical region with plenty of competition from other fungi and plant life. This is why the Blue Meanie strain is so robust—to survive in the wild in its natural environment, it has to be.

In the wild, this strain will colonize rapidly, thanks to its tough rhizomorphic mycelium. This ultimately results in prolific mature fruiting bodies and repeated flushes. The mature mushroom itself is midsized but, as we’ve established, quite potent thanks to its high psilocybin content.

Under the microscope, Blue Meanie spores portray the precursors to these characteristics. Amateur microscopists who want to have the opportunity to study spores of a fungus that has evolved to survive in a tough competitive environment will love the opportunity enjoyed with the Blue Meanie spore strain.

What Are Blue Meanies Mushrooms?

Blue Meanies” is the common name for Panaeolus cyanescens. The name says a lot about this species; they turn dark blue when picked and can certainly pack a punch. Panaeolus cyanescens are one of the more potent psilocybin-containing mushrooms, despite their unassuming stature. Pcyanescens produces small medium-sized brown to white mushrooms that are easy for amateur enthusiasts to overlook. 

Mushrooms from the genus Panaeolus are very common; they grow globally in tropical and temperate environments. Panaeolus cyanescens is a tropical/subtropical grassland species, often found in dung—just like another familiar mushroom we know. If you were not aware of Blue Meanies, you could easily miss a patch while foraging for the more popular Psilocybe cubensisThe former is believed to contain two to three times the psilocybin found in cubensis.

Where Do Blue Meanies Mushrooms Grow?

Panaeolus cyanescens is a tropical and sub-tropical species. In tropical regions, the mushrooms grow year-round. In the subtropics, they grow from late spring to autumn, depending on rain and humidity. They are known to occur in temperate zones during wet and humid parts of summer. Blue Meanies are mostly found growing on cattle or horse dung in pastures and fields, growing singly and in groups. They appear in spring or during rainy seasons.

Their range in the United States is from Florida and along the Gulf Coast, where it fruits virtually year-round on “cow pies.” It is thought they were introduced to other countries by the movement of livestock; it is assumed Panaeolus cyanescens was introduced to the islands of Hawaii during the early 1800s when cattle were imported from the Philippines. Now, they occur throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. In addition, Blue Meanies mushrooms are commonly found in Mexico, South America (Colombia, Bolivia, Brazil, and Peru), Eastern Australia, India, Bali, Southeast Asia, South Africa, France, and Italy.

Is Panaeolus Related to Psilocybe?

Psilocin is thought to protect the developing fruit body from predation either through a toxic effect on the predator’s nervous system or affecting their ability to eat.  The ability to minimize predation has ecological advantages. Through close contact with Psilocybe, some Panaeolus have also gained the ability to protect themselves with psilocybin.

Not all Panaeolus spp. contain the psychedelic compound psilocybin. Neither is Panaeolus related to Psilocybe. Either some species of Panaeolus lost the ability to produce psilocybin, or something interesting is going on. It is now theorized that some Panaeolus species obtained the ability to produce psilocybin through “horizontal gene transfer.” Bacteria can share advantageous genetic material, but occasionally this can happen between bacteria and fungi.  By sharing the same habitat and often the same substrate, through this close contact—and some bacterial wizardry—it is thought the ability to produce psilocybin passed from a genus that had evolved the ability to produce psilocybin species to one that hadn’t.

Panaeolus cyanescens Potency

Albert Hofmann analyzed Panaeolus cyanescens, then known as Copelandia cyanescens, in the early 1960s after reports of “intoxications” caused by dung-loving fungi from southern France. Hofmann found psilocin in higher concentrations after analyzing the fruiting bodies, yet there were only slight quantities of psilocybin. Although the origins of these samples were mysterious to Hofman, their true origins eventually came to light: they were growing from the dung of horses bought from Indonesia to take part in a horse race.

As mentioned above, this species is quite potent. The effects of Blue Meanies mushrooms may come on quickly due to higher levels of psilocin than psilocybin. Panaeolus cyanescens is often reported to be two to three times the strength of cubensis. Yet, there is little published data to support claims about the potency of these fungi. Erowid reports that these mushrooms have a combined psilocybin and psilocin content of between 0.5 to 2.95 percent dry weight. Stivje in 1992 identified they were variable in their potency 0.17 to 0.95 percent psilocin and 0.16 to 0.19 percent psilocybin!  Psilocybe cubensis, by comparison, have been reported to have concentrations of psilocin and psilocybin between 0.14 to 0.42 percent and 0.37 to 1.30 percent dry weight, respectively.
