This study provides meaningful access to some lesser-known magic mushroom compounds and conducts biological testing on them for the first time.
This influential study advances the understanding of magic mushroom physiology and helps answer several fundamental questions.
“Our researchers will isolate and study all of the potentially ‘magic’ molecules in mushrooms.”
This compound may be more ubiquitous than scientists originally thought. But no one has really gone looking for it yet.
This is the first time since the 1970s that a Canadian company has legally cultivated and harvested psychedelic mushrooms.
From cow dung to coffee grounds. this species grows well on a variety of substrates.
Cultivating P. cubensis: Light and Tryptamine Are Key for Controlling Psilocybin and Psilocin Levels
No light and increasing tryptamine in the growing medium leads to more psilocin but less psilocybin in the mushrooms.
Understanding the pharmacology of magic mushrooms is not just about tryptamines anymore.
Although aeruginascin is only present in psilocybin mushrooms and bufotenidine is present in toads, their structural and chemical similarities may be surprising.
Stamets says standardized formulations of multiple psilocybin analogs are the "wave of the future" because of the entourage effect.
