Where to Buy Magic Mushrooms Online In the United States 🇺🇸

Despite restrictions, the American mushroom marketplace is thriving…

Last Updated: May 05, 2024

Over the past 12 months, we’ve noticed a significant influx in magic mushroom brands feeling bold enough to offer their services to the American public, and law enforcement has done little to stop them.

We view this as a sign of loosening restrictions on natural psychedelics. First comes deprioritization by law enforcement, allowing brands and retailers to thrive — which is later followed by legalization and regulation. This is the same pattern that appeared in Canada prior to the legalization of Cannabis.

So where can you buy them?

Here, we’ll examine a few of the most reputable places selling the following magic mushroom products:

We’ll also explore why you should grow mushrooms at home yourself, how to grow them, and which strains to choose for your first batch.

US-Based Magic Mushroom Vendors

Although psilocybin remains illegal in the United States, there are dozens of online vendors openly selling magic mushrooms. We’ve found most of them to be scams, but a few are legit — several even offering impressive quality for such a gray-market service.

Note: We don’t advocate breaking any federal or state laws. We’ve developed this vendor list for transparency.

Order at your own risk. Magic mushrooms are illegal in the United States.

1. Psilouette 

Psilouette could be described as a magic mushroom vendor. However, it’s much more than that. 

This brand sells a range of mushroom products, from dried shrooms, teas, and capsules to gummies, chocolates, and functional mushroom pills. Most of its product offerings are geared towards specific benefits and are formulated using other herbs and nutrients for added effect.

The Psilouette team fervently advocates for the medicinal use of magic mushrooms, so many of their products are specifically geared toward mental health and wellness.

Psilouette also offers online therapy programs for both individuals and groups.

If you’re interested in using psilocybin medicinally to improve mental and/or physical well-being, this is currently the best company in the United States to contact. 

Likes & Dislikes: Psilouette

  • ✅ Brand focused on the medicinal qualities of mushrooms
  • ✅ Also offers online therapy programs
  • ✅ Offers a wide selection of high-quality products geared towards specific benefits
  • ❌ Some products are a little on the expensive side

Products Mentioned: Psilouette Mushroom Gummies | Psilouette Cacao Butter Melts

2. Eden Direct

Eden Direct is a magic mushroom vendor based out of New York. They sell a range of dried Psilocybe cubensis strains as well as capsules, gummies, and chocolates. 

Although Eden’s mushrooms are high-quality, not all of the brands sold on the website are legitimate. Several sketchy shroom edible brands, such as PolkaDot and MycroChips, can be purchased from Eden Direct. 

This vendor is legitimate, but customers must be vigilant when ordering. It’s best to stick to the dried mushrooms and avoid the gummies, chocolates, and capsules sold on the website.

Likes & Dislikes: Eden Direct

  • ✅ Excellent selection of magic mushroom and cannabis products
  • ✅ Offers nationwide shipping
  • ❌ Some products offered on its marketplace have very poor reviews

Products Mentioned: Hero Mushroom Chocolate Bar | Eden Direct Psilocybin Capsules | Eden Direct Macrodose Gummies

3. Neau Tropics

Neau Tropics is a popular magic mushroom edible brand that makes artisan chocolates and gummies in a variety of flavors and potencies. 

This brand specializes in psilocybin chocolates, with over 15 individual flavors as well as both macro and microdose options. They also offer some unique gummy flavors like peanut butter and jam and mango tajin.

One of the more unique products this brand offers is a sublingual psilocybin spray — designed to be sprayed under the tongue for rapid onset of effects.

Neau Tropics does not sell whole, dried mushrooms.

Neau Tropics offers nationwide shipping on all its psilocybin products, and has both a secure Telegram checkout as well as conventional web ordering.

Likes & Dislikes: Neau Tropics

  • ✅ Impressive range of more than 15 unique (and delicious) mushroom-infused chocolates
  • ✅ Multiple secure payment methods
  • ✅ Nationwide shipping available
  • ❌ Not all products come with up-to-date third-party testing

Products Mentioned: Neau Tropics Magic Mushroom Bars | Neau Tropics Magic Mushroom Gummies

4. Promoco DC

Promoco DC is a popular cannabis dispensary located in Washington, DC. They provide delivery to Maryland, Vermont, and DC only.

Promoco DC sells a range of cannabis flower, resin, concentrates, and vape carts. They’ve recently expanded, adding a range of dehydrated magic mushrooms, psilocybin capsules, chocolates, and gummies to their catalog. 

Like Eden Direct, not all of the products sold by Promoco DC appear to be legit. However, the dried Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms and capsules we tried were very good. 

Likes & Dislikes: Promoco DC

  • ✅ Excellent selection of magic mushroom and cannabis products
  • ✅ Provides rapid delivery
  • ✅ Also has a physical store you can visit
  • ❌ Only provides service to Maryland, Washington DC, and Vermont

Products Mentioned: Promoco DC Mushroom Shake Capsules

Trending Leafs is another DC-based cannabis dispensary that has expanded to the magic mushroom market. This company operates differently from other dispensaries. While the cannabis products they sell can be purchased for delivery to a home address, the magic mushroom products must be ordered for pick up from their Washington DC branch.

This dispensary has a small but premium range of mushroom products. Around ten different strains of Psilocybe cubensis are available, as well as five different microdose capsules. This dispensary is definitely about quality over quantity, and if you’re in the area, it’s worth the drive for a pick-up. 

Likes & Dislikes: Trending Leafs

  • ✅ Excellent selection of magic mushroom and cannabis products
  • ✅ Also has a physical location you can visit in person
  • ❌ Only ships to Maryland, Washington DC, and Vermont

Products Mentioned: Trending Leafs Psilocybin Capsules

6. Dreams Wellness

Dreams Wellness is another reputable cannabis dispensary located in Washington, DC that also sells magic mushrooms.

Dried fruits, chocolates, gummies, and capsules are available over the counter or online from Dreams Wellness. Most of the shroom products this dispensary sells appear legit, but there are many brands here we’ve never heard of so exercise caution when trying these products for the first time.

It’s always a good idea to ask for lab analysis for anything but dried magic mushrooms to make sure the products you’re buying are legit. Any reputable brand should have these tests available to demonstrate the active ingredient is indeed psilocybin and not something else.

Likes & Dislikes: Dreams Wellness

  • ✅ Detailed lab analysis offered for all products
  • ✅ Carried a wide selection of gummies, chocolates, & dried shrooms
  • ✅ Also has a physical location you can visit in person
  • ❌ Only ships to Maryland, Washington DC, and Vermont

7. Bliss Mushrooms

Bliss Mushrooms is a magic mushroom brand based out of Oakland, California. They sell a range of dried magic mushrooms, capsules, and chocolates.

Although this company uses some peculiar marketing tactics and the designs on the packaging aren’t particularly professional, their products are legit.

The Bliss Mushroom chocolate bars are very strong and come in a variety of different potency and flavor options. They also carry dried shrooms and capsules.

Bliss also claims all of its products are lab-tested, organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free. 

Likes & Dislikes: Bliss Mushrooms

  • ✅ Ships nationwide
  • ✅ Decent variety of magic mushroom chocolates available
  • ❌ Low-quality feel to packaging and marketing efforts

Products Mentioned: Bliss Magic Mushroom Chocolate Bars | Bliss Microdose Capsules

Magic Mushroom Capsules

Microdosing psilocybin is a popular practice for enhancing focus, concentration, emotional connection with the self and others, creativity, and meditation.

Microdosing involves consuming very low (nonpsychoactive) doses of psychedelics on a regular basis. Capsules are the most common method people use to take mushrooms for microdosing — they provide consistent doses, often combine other synergystic ingredients, and are both discrete and easy to use.

Here are some of the best magic mushroom capsules we’ve tried recently for both micro and macrodosing:

1. Bliss Microdose Capsules

Bliss Microdose Capsules
Tripsitter Ranking9/10
Trust Score8/10
Potency Per Capsule (mg)250 mg
Sold ByBliss Mushrooms

These Microdose Capsules from Bliss Mushrooms contain 250 mg of Psilocybe cubensis per capsule. Each bottle contains 28 plant-based capsules that are kosher certified, made without fillers, and completely organic. 

All of Bliss Mushrooms’ products are lab-tested, and up-to-date certificates of analysis are on their website. These microdose capsules are perfect for boosting creativity, energy, and confidence while stabilizing mood and reducing stress. 

At 250 mg per capsule, they’re on the “stronger side” of a microdose. Users may experience slight feelings of euphoria but shouldn’t experience any impairing psychedelic effects.

Likes & Dislikes: Bliss Microdose Capsules

  • ✅ Completely plant & mushroom based formula
  • ✅ Lab testing provided for every batch
  • ❌ On the stronger side of a conventional microdose

2. Promoco DC Mushroom Shake Capsules

Promoco DC Mushroom Shake Capsules
Tripsitter Ranking7/10
Trust Score7/10
Potency Per Capsule (mg)200 mg
Sold ByPromoco DC

The Mushroom Shake Capsules from Promoco DC contain a blend of different Psilocybe cubensis strains, such as Penis Envy, Avery’s Albino, and Blue Meanies. Each capsule contains 200 mg of magic mushrooms — an effective microdose.

These capsules have mixed reviews with some saying they’re completely ineffective and others saying they’re too strong for a microdose. There may be some inconsistency in potency from one capsule to the next or the mixed reviews could be down to people’s sensitivity and tolerance to psilocybin. 

Likes & Dislikes: Promoco DC Mushroom Shake Capsules

  • ✅ Strain-specific offerings available (penis envy, avery’s albino, and blue meanies)
  • ✅ Excellent build quality and premium ingredients
  • ❌ Only available in DC, Maryland, & Vermont
  • ❌ Online reports suggest inconsistent results with these capsules
Trending Leafs Psilocybin Capsules
Tripsitter Ranking 9/10
Trust Score 8/10
Potency Per Capsule (mg)250 mg
Sold ByTrending Leafs

The psilocybin capsules from Trending Leafs contain 250 mg of Psilocybe cubensis per piece. They can be consumed singly as a microdose or taken in multiples for macrodosing or inducing a mild psychedelic experience. 

These capsules have varied formulations. They utilize ingredients such as lion’s mane, niacin, L-Theanine, maca root, and saffron. 

There are six options to choose from:

  • Naked (just dried P. cubensis)
  • Period (alleviates cramps & bloating)
  • Passion (increases intimacy & arousal)
  • Focus (enhances mental clarity & attention)
  • Cognition (mental sharpness)
  • Depressed (elevates mood). 

Likes & Dislikes: Trending Leafs Psilocybin Capsules

  • ✅ Formulated with niacin, L-theanine, maca, lion’s mane, and saffron
  • ✅ Numerous offerings available for specific health goals
  • ❌ Only available in DC, Maryland, & Vermont

4. Eden Direct Psilocybin Capsules

Eden Direct Psilocybin Capsules
Tripsitter Ranking7/10
Trust Score6/10
Potency Per Capsule (mg)100 – 150 mg
Sold ByEden Direct

Eden sells a range of psilocybin mushroom capsules. They have capsules for energy, focus, digestion, and inflammation, but our favorite is the “Immunity” microdose capsules.

The Immunity capsules contain a blend of functional mushrooms. In each capsule, you’ll find psilocybin mushroom powder, organic cacao powder, organic lion’s mane mushroom powder, organic oyster mushroom powder, organic ground chaga, organic ground maitake, and organic red reishi mushroom powder. 

The exact quantities present in their Immunity microdose capsules aren’t listed, so we’re unsure of their potency. However, we estimate a potency of between 100 to 150 mg (dried P. cubensis) per capsule. 

Likes & Dislikes: Eden Direct Psilocybin Capsules

  • ✅ Available nationwide
  • ✅ Formulated with other functional ingredients
  • ❌ Some products don’t list specific dosages

Magic Mushroom Gummies

Magic mushroom gummies provide several advantages over conventional dried shrooms — they offer a tasty, convenient, and discrete way to consume psilocybin. However, they can also be pretty inconsistent regarding potency and chemical contents.

Many companies in the United States make “magic mushroom gummies” that contain research chemicals such as 4-AcO-DMT instead of real shrooms. This would be okay if only the companies were more transparent with their gummy’s contents — but when you think you’re taking a specific substance, it’s unethical to sell products with something completely different.

A lack of laboratory testing and the nature of the US’s gray market magic mushroom industry makes it impossible to know exactly what’s inside shroom gummies. If you purchase gummies online, you do so at your own risk.

With that said, here are three shroom gummies we’ve come to appreciate:

1. Neau Tropics Magic Mushroom Gummies

Neau Tropics Magic Mushroom Gummies
Tripsitter Ranking10/10Potent psilocybin gummies made from all-natural ingredients

The Neau Tropics gummies come in four flavors: sour green apple, peachy lychee, mango tajin, and PB&J, all available in packs of 16 gummies. 

Each pack contains the equivalent of 4 grams of dried Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. Each gummy is dosed at 250 mg. Take half to one gummy for a microdose, two for a threshold dose, and four or more for a psychedelic dose. 

These gummies can be bought directly on the Neau Tropics website, or through their secure Telegram channel.

Avoid purchasing these gummies elsewhere. There are several fake Neau Tropics edibles being sold in the US.

Likes & Dislikes: Neau Tropics Magic Mushroom Gummies

  • ✅ Available nationwide
  • ✅ Very unique (and delicious) flavor combinations not found in other gummies
  • ✅ Convenient dosing makes it easy to micro or macrodose with the same gummies
  • ❌ Beware of fakes floating around for this product — only buy from the official website

Sold ByPsilouetteOnly available to buy directly from Psilouette

Psilouette offers a range of different mushroom gummies to suit different aspects of life. By blending different functional and psychedelic mushrooms, Psilouette has created gummies for general microdosing and macrodosing, as well as aiding in sleep, stress, libido, and cognitive function. 

Functional gummies are Psilouette’s specialty. If I were to list the different types, their specific blends, and what purpose they serve in physical and mental well-being, this article would be never-ending. 

So, here’s what you should know:

All of Psilouette’s gummies are third-party lab tested, and up-to-date results are on their website. They are vegan, cruelty-free, utilize full-spectrum actives, and are made without any synthesized ingredients. The gummies come in packs of 32 or 64 and range in price depending on potency and formulation. 

If you want to supplement with psilocybin to improve overall well-being or a specific area of your life, definitely check out the range of magic mushroom gummies from Psilouette. 

Likes & Dislikes: Psilouette Mushroom Gummies

  • ✅ Custom formulas to match specific health goals
  • ✅ All gummies come with detailed lab analysis
  • ❌ A bit on the expensive side

3. Eden Direct Macrodose Gummies

Eden Direct Macrodose Gummies
Tripsitter Ranking8/10Good microdose gummies that are cost-effective
Trust Score7/10Seemingly trustworthy, but a lack of lab data and additional information is concerning
Potency Per Gummy (mg)400 mg4000 mg of P. cubensis per pack divided into 10 gummies with 400 mg per piece
Taste8/10Flavors vary depending on availability
Cost$60–$65Reasonably priced for gummies of this type
Sold ByEden DirectOnly available from Eden Direct

The Eden Macrodose gummies contain 4000 mg of Psilocybe cubensis per pack. Each pack contains 10 gummies, with a dose of 400 mg (0.4 g) per piece. 

These gummies use all-natural ingredients and contain a blend of natural synergistic ingredients such as black carrot, vitamin C, and organic turmeric that enhance the effects of the psilocybin. They come in a range of flavor options including Blackberry Lemonade, Strawberry, or Mango.

There’s not a huge amount of information on these gummies, and we’re yet to find any third-party lab data exposing their tryptamine content. With that said, they have good reviews and seem legit.

Likes & Dislikes: Eden Direct Microdose Gummies

  • ✅ Multiple flavor options
  • ✅ Excellent pricepoint for potent psilocybin gummies
  • ❌ No lab reports for these gummies to be found


Magic Mushroom Chocolates

If you don’t like the taste of raw magic mushrooms, psilocybin-infused chocolate bars are an excellent alternative.

However, like shroom gummies, it’s impossible to know exactly what’s inside these trippy treats without sending them off for laboratory testing. Some companies provide this testing for peace of mind; others don’t.

Several brands in the United States use synthetic research chemicals in their chocolate bars and advertise them as “magic mushroom chocolates.” At the moment, it’s safer to make magic mushroom chocolate yourself — this way, you know exactly what’s inside. 

With that said, here are four of the best shroom chocolate bars in the US: 

1. Neau Tropics Magic Mushroom Bars 

Neau Tropics Magic Mushroom Bars
Tripsitter Ranking10/10Potent psilocybin chocolates made from high-quality ingredients

Neau Tropics chocolate bars are made using high-quality ingredients and whole dehydrated Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms. Three potency options are available — 4000 mg and 6000 mg full-size chocolate bars and a 2000 mg “mini” bar. 

Several different flavors are available in all potency options. Cookies & cream, birthday cake, salted pretzel, strawberry shortcake, and matcha are just a few of the intriguing concoctions offered by Neau Tropics. 

You can order these bars directly from the Neau Tropics website or use their encrypted Telegram chat.

Likes & Dislikes: Neau Tropics Magic Mushroom Bars

  • ✅ More than 15 unique flavor options available

The Psilouette Cacao Butter Melts aren’t strictly chocolates, but they are luxurious, organic chocolatey treats that contain psilocybin from magic mushrooms. Each bite-sized Cacao Melt contains only three ingredients: 200 mg of Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms, cacao butter, and 100% cacao. 

The Psilouette Cacao Butter Melts come in packs of 32 or 64. The packs are expensive, but you get a lot for the money. They’re completely organic, fair trade, and vegan-friendly.

All of Psilouette’s products are third-party lab-tested, and the results are available on the website. Not only is it possible to see the exact levels of psilocybin in the Cacao Butter Melts, but psilocin, baeocystin, and other tryptamines are also present. 

If you’re looking for a healthy way to supplement with psilocybin that’s tasty, organic, and sugar-free, check out Psilouette’s Cacao Butter Melts.

Bliss Mushrooms is a California-based shroom brand that makes a range of different chocolate bars. Two potency options are available: a 3500 mg (3.5-gram) bar and a 6000 mg (6-gram) bar called “the Holy Grail.”

These bars are third-party lab tested, and certificates of analysis with detailed tryptamine data can be viewed on the Bliss Mushrooms website. All the chocolate bars are organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and kosher-certified. They come in a range of flavors from normal milk and dark chocolate to peppermint, “Firecracker,” and creme brulee. 

If you’re looking for a genuine magic mushroom chocolate bar that contains enough psilocybin to induce an intense psychedelic experience, the Bliss Mushroom Bar is one of the best options on the US market right now.

The Hero mushroom bar is a popular magic mushroom chocolate bar that utilizes Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms and a range of adaptogens to increase the effectiveness of the psilocybin. 

We’re not 100% convinced these edibles are legitimate because of a lack of tryptamine testing and information on mushroom sources. However, they deserve a spot on the list — you’ll have to decide whether the risk is worth it or not.

The bars contain “psilocybin mushrooms, cacao, cacao butter, cane sugar, non-micro-plastic sea salt, a proprietary spice blend, and an adaptogen blend of chaga, reishi, cordyceps, and lion’s mane mushrooms.” One to three pieces of chocolate is a threshold dose, four to seven pieces is a psychedelic dose, and consuming eight to ten pieces is considered a “heroic” dose.

Likes & Dislikes: Hero Mushroom Bar

  • ✅ Delivers “heroic doses” of magic mushrooms in a single bar
  • ✅ Made with cacao, cocoa butter, cane sugar, and microplastic-free sea salt
  • ❌ No lab testing means we can’t be sure what the active ingredient of these bars is

Dried Magic Mushrooms

Despite all the innovative products types available these days, nothing quite beats the standard dry Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms.

Unlike “psilocybin” chocolates and gummies, it’s difficult to hide an illegitimate product inside a bag of magic mushrooms. Dried shrooms can be identified, visually inspected, and tested at home with a tryptamine test kit to ensure their legitimacy before consumption.

The quality and availability of dried shrooms varies throughout the year — lots of different vendors carry these shrooms, so instead of listing specific sources, we’ll explore the most popular strains to check out — along with a list of vendors that carry each strain.

Below are the top 7 best dehydrated magic mushroom strains worth trying:

1. Penis Envy

SpeciesPsilocybe cubensis
Cost (3.5 Grams)$60
Mushrooms Sold ByPromoco DC, Eden Direct, Dreams Wellness, Trending Leafs
Spores Sold ByRalphsters, Spores 101, Sporeworks, SporeStore, Mushroom Prints

Penis Envy is the strongest strain of Psilocybe cubensis. This one is for the experienced psychonaut who wants to induce a strong psychedelic experience. 

This strain produces phallic-shaped mushrooms with an average tryptamine level of around 1.15% — roughly 0.96% psilocybin and 0.15% psilocin. This strain can be a little pricier than some of the weaker strains on the market, but the high potency is usually worth the money.

2. Tidal Wave

PotencyVery Potent
SpeciesPsilocybe cubensis
Cost (3.5 Grams)$50
Mushrooms Sold ByEden Direct, Trending Leafs 
Spores Sold ByRalphsters, Spores 101, Sporeworks, SporeStore, Mushroom Prints

Tidal Wave is a popular Psilocybe cubensis strain that famously won the Spring 2021 Oakland Hyphae Psilocybin Cup with a whopping total tryptamine content of 3.82% — that’s three times higher than the average P. cubensis shroom.

This strain is a cross between Penis Envy and B+. Although its win was impressive, Tidal Wave shrooms purchased online are unlikely to be anywhere near as potent. You can expect a shroom with a tryptamine level of around 1.00% and a psilocybin level of 0.80% (maybe higher or lower, depending on how the shrooms have been grown). 

Regardless, Tidal Wave is a highly-potent strain that’s often just as (or more) potent than Penis Envy. This isn’t a good shroom for beginners.

3. Jack Frost

PotencyAbove average
SpeciesPsilocybe cubensis
Cost (3.5 Grams)$35
Mushrooms Sold ByPromoco DC, Trending Leafs 
Spores Sold ByRalphsters Spores, Spores 101, Sporeslab

Jack Frost is a potent hybrid of two potent Psilocybe cubensis strains — True Albino Teacher and Albino Penis Envy. Although these shrooms aren’t true albinos, they lack pigment. They have small, bulbous, creamy-white caps and thick white stems.

These mushrooms can produce around 0.72% psilocybin and more than 1.00% total tryptamines — this puts them in the “above average” category. Jack Frost is a great choice for those who want a potent shroom with excellent bag appeal.

4. Pearly Gates

PotencyAbove Average
SpeciesPsilocybe cubensis
Cost (3.5 Grams)$35
Mushrooms Sold ByTrending Leafs
Spores Sold ByRalphsters Spores

Pearly Gates is a cross between the True Albino Teacher strain and Penis Envy. The shrooms have thick stems and small bulbous caps with a dark center. 

These mushrooms have above-average potency and can have around 1.32% total tryptamines — 0.99% psilocybin and 0.9% psilocin. Although they’re stronger than some other Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms, they make a great choice for beginners and experienced psychonauts alike. 

5. Hillbilly

SpeciesPsilocybe cubensis
Cost (3.5 Grams)$45
Mushrooms Sold ByPromoco DC
Spores Sold ByRalphsters Spores

The Hillbilly strain is one of the weaker strains of Psilocybe cubensis. Hillbilly fruits are short, fat, and relatively round, making them extraordinary to look at. They produce an average total tryptamine content of around 0.81% and contain around 0.61% psilocybin.

Although these shrooms are weaker than most, they’re becoming more popular thanks to a win in the Oakland Hyphae Psilocybin Cup. The sample won the “Microdose Champion” title, producing 0.49% total tryptamines (0.23% psilocybin and 0.11% psilocin). 

If you’re new to shroom consumption or are looking to microdose psilocybin, Hillbilly mushrooms are a fantastic choice.

6. Golden Teacher

SpeciesPsilocybe cubensis
Cost (3.5 Grams)$30–$50
Mushrooms Sold ByPromoco DC, Eden Direct 
Spores Sold ByRalphsters, Spores 101, Sporeworks, SporeStore, Mushroom Prints

Golden Teacher is one of the most popular strains of Psilocybe cubensis. It has been around since the 80s and is a common choice among commercial cultivators because of its consistency in shroom size and potency. 

These shrooms are available to buy from most online vendors across North America. They produce an average tryptamine level of 0.73% — around 0.66% psilocybin and 0.05% psilocin. 

Golden Teacher is a great all-rounder for beginners and seasoned psychonauts alike. It’s usually one of the more cost-effective shrooms, much cheaper than the “designer strains” that boast potency or unique looks. 

7. Blue Meanies

SpeciesPsilocybe cubensis
Cost (3.5 Grams)$35–$60
Mushrooms Sold ByTrending Leafs, Promoco DC
Spores Sold ByRalphsters, Spores 101, SporeStore, Mushroom Prints

Blue Meanies is a strain of Psilocybe cubensis not to be confused with the species Panaeolus cyanescens which shares the same common name. Blue Meanies shrooms bruise easily, taking on bright blue hues across the stems and caps — this is where it gets its name. 

These mushrooms are “average” in terms of potency, producing an average psilocybin level of 0.67% and a total tryptamine level of 0.75%. This makes them an excellent choice for beginners to mushroom consumption and those who want to experiment with microdosing.

Magic mushrooms — fungi containing the restricted compound psilocybin — are illegal in the United States and most other countries across the globe. 

A handful of states have legalized the use of psilocybin mushrooms medically, but they remain inaccessible to the broader public. It’s not yet possible to purchase magic mushrooms in states such as Oregon and Colorado that have “legalized” psilocybin. Instead, people must go to a government-funded research center to undergo psilocybin treatment.

If you want to source magic mushrooms in the United States, even in so-called “legal states,” they must be obtained illegally by either purchasing them online or on the street, growing them, or harvesting them from the wild. Sourcing magic mushrooms in the US is risky regardless of where you get them from. However, purchasing them online carries the highest legal risk.

It’s easier to get caught purchasing magic mushrooms online than any other method (growing, foraging, or buying them on the street).  

Legalization Status

The Risks of Buying Shrooms Online in the United States

Getting caught purchasing magic mushrooms online can lead to legal repercussions. The penalties for purchasing psilocybin-containing mushrooms online vary in severity depending on the quantity purchased, previous convictions, and the state you reside in. 

At the very least, you’ll receive a fine and an official warning if caught purchasing magic mushrooms. However, the penalties are worse in some circumstances — jail time, house arrest, a criminal record, or a suspended sentence. 

People don’t just risk legal consequences when purchasing shrooms online. There’s a risk of being scammed, receiving a low-quality product, or a potentially harmful edible laced with synthetic research chemicals. The long and short of it is that buying shrooms online is dangerous. You’ll need to be vigilant to avoid legal, financial, or health repercussions.

Tips For Buying Shrooms Online

There are a lot of sketchy magic mushroom vendors, brands, and edibles on the market. It can be difficult to identify a legitimate company but there are a few things you can do to reduce the chances of getting scammed. 

Follow these steps if you decide to purchase shrooms online:

1. Do Your Research on the Vendor

The first step when looking to buy magic mushrooms online is to research the vendor thoroughly. Your research should start at the vendor’s website.

Read the descriptions and other written language on the website first. Scammy companies often use hastily built websites with poorly written content. If the language is full of grammatical errors, sentences that make no sense, or vague descriptions of the products, it’s best to avoid them. 

Any legitimate vendor or shroom brand will state explicitly what type of mushrooms are used and how potent the product or dried shroom is. Steer clear of “shroom” edible brands that use expressions such as “contains X milligrams of mushrooms” rather than stating the psilocybin level or type of mushroom used. 

It’s also a good idea to examine which payment options the company accepts. Many vendors will offer normal means of payment — credit, debit, PayPal, etc. It’s best to avoid companies that only accept cryptocurrency or wire transfers unless you’re 100% sure they’re trustworthy. 

Finally, head over to Reddit or other public forums to explore other genuine customer reviews of the vendor or brand you’re looking at. It’s important to seek out reviews beyond the company’s own website (which likely cherry-picks positive reviews).

2. Always Buy Direct From the Manufacturer

There are more sketchy brands selling magic mushrooms these days than legit ones. These companies often use packaging that can be purchased in bulk from Alibaba, DHgate, and other Chinese wholesalers. Anyone can buy and fill “shroom chocolate” or “magic mushroom gummy” packaging with inactive or chemically-laced edibles.

In many cases, the packaging is designed to directly copy or closely mimic well-known and reputable brands.

3. Consider Tryptamine Testing

The only way to be 100% sure of the contents of a magic mushroom edible is to send a sample off to a lab for tryptamine testing. However, this comes at a cost, and it can take several weeks or months to receive the results. 

Unless you’re confident that a particular shroom edible contains psilocybin from real magic mushrooms, avoid purchasing. Several of the so-called “magic mushroom” chocolates, gummies, and capsules available to buy online contain psychedelic research chemicals such as 4-AcO-DMT rather than psilocybin. Many of these chemicals can be dangerous.

Dried magic mushrooms are a little less risky to purchase. It’s possible to positively identify a mushroom and assess its quality even if it has been dehydrated. You may not want to send a mushroom sample off for tryptamine testing, but it’s a good idea to test them at home. 

Using a psilocybin test such as the Miraculix Psiocybin-Qtest will help you gauge how strong the mushrooms you’ve purchased are before consumption. 

4. Assess the Quality of the Shrooms

If you’ve purchased dried magic mushrooms online, it’s important to inspect them closely. 

Once you receive the mushrooms in the mail, it’s important to identify them. Do they look identical to the species or strain you ordered? If they look different and you’re unsure of the mushroom’s identity, do not consume them.

Look out for signs of mold. If you see any green mold, white fuzzy mold, or dark black spots (mildew) on the mushroom, do not eat it. Don’t worry if you see blue staining—this is common in Psilocybe mushrooms and an indicator that the mushrooms contain psilocybin. 

Smell the mushrooms. Magic mushrooms don’t smell pleasant. They often have an earthy scent with cheesy notes. However, if the shrooms smell damp or like mildew, you should avoid eating them. 

Do a “snap test” as well. A properly-dried mushroom should snap easily with an audible crack. If the stems or caps bend, the shrooms still have moisture and should not be consumed. 

If the shrooms pass the visual, smell, and moisture tests, they should be safe to consume responsibly. 

Growing Magic Mushrooms At Home

Growing magic mushrooms at home is easier than you might think, and it’s one of the best ways to “source” high-quality shrooms. 

If you’re new to mushroom cultivation and want an easy way to start harvesting psychedelic shrooms from the comfort of your home, magic mushroom grow kits are the way to go. 

“Ready-to-fruit” magic mushroom grow kits come with a pre-inoculated spawn bag that contains live mycelium. A few simple steps are required to produce mushrooms from these kits, and your first shrooms can be harvested in as little as seven days.

If you want more flexibility in terms of which strains of Psilocybe cubensis you can grow or fancy more of a challenge, growing magic mushrooms from spores is the way to go. It’s not as complicated as you might think to grow mushrooms from spores — anyone can do it.

List of US-Based Magic Mushroom Spore Vendors

If you want to grow magic mushrooms at home, you’ll need a source for high-quality magic mushroom spores. 

Fortunately, ordering shroom spores online is completely legal in the United States. The spores don’t contain any psilocybin and are therefore exempt from the laws regulating magic mushrooms as “containers of illicit substances.”

Read the Ultimate Guide to Buying & Using Magic Mushroom Spores in the US

1. The Spore Works

The Spore Works is one of the oldest spore vendors around. This company has been selling magic mushroom spores since October 1998. This is a reliable vendor that stocks a wide range of Psilocybe cubensis spores as well as a selection of more exotic psilocybin mushroom species. 

Spore syringes, prints, swabs, and vials are available, and several “multipack” deals are offered where customers can purchase a mix of four or five different spore syringes for a discounted price. 

The Spore Works have outstanding customer service and fast, discreet shipping across the United States. International shipping is available, but orders can take a while to reach their destination and run the risk of getting stopped in customs. 


MYYCO is a reputable spore vendor that sells a range of psychedelic, functional, edible, and medicinal mushroom live cultures. 

Unlike typical spore syringes, MYYCO’s syringes hold liquid cultures that contain small pieces of early-stage mycelium. Liquid cultures are less likely to become contaminated and have the strongest mycelium isolated from the highest-performing cultures. For the cultivator, this means faster incubation times, a higher success rate, and larger, stronger fruits. 

MYYCO is a certified Benefit Corporation. 100% of their profits are donated to 501(c)(3) organizations that perform research on psychedelic and functional mushrooms. MYYCO’s current beneficiaries are MAPS, John Hopkins, and Heroic Hearts.

If you want the highest-quality liquid cultures and want your money to go toward groundbreaking research in the psychedelic field, this is the place to go.

They strive to collect and preserve psilocybin mushroom species and P. cubensis strains while sharing knowledge and high-quality spores with other keen mycologists. 

6. Spores 101 

Spores 101 has been around since the late 2000s. They’re one of the largest spore vendors in North America and serve both the United States and Canada. 

Several spore samples of Psilocybe cubensis strains and other mushroom species are available for purchase in syringes, plates, prints, and swabs. Live cultures, live mycelium, substrates, spawn bags, and other mycology supplies are also available to buy on the website. 

Which Strains to Grow At Home

It can be difficult to choose a strain to grow from the hundreds of vastly different Psilocybe cubensis strains out there. 

P. cubensis strains all have differences in characteristics; some are easy to grow, others produce high yields, some are remarkably potent, and others have a unique appearance. 

When choosing a strain to grow at home, consider your cultivation experience level, the strength of the mushroom you’d like to end up with, how many shrooms you want to produce, and whether appearance or “bag appeal” is important to you. 

Here are six different strains we recommend for different purposes:

1.  Golden Teacher (Best Strain for Beginners)

Golden Teacher is considered the best strain for beginners to magic mushroom cultivation. Its contamination resistance, fast colonization speeds, and ability to grow in an unoptimized environment make it the perfect choice for newbies to mushroom cultivation. 

This is one of the most common Psilocybe cubensis strains on the market. It was originally collected from somewhere in the Gulf region of the United States in the late 1970s to early 1980s. It grows quickly, produces dense flushes, and is averagely potent — producing around 0.73% total tryptamines (0.66% psilocybin). 

Other great beginner strains:

2. Penis Envy (Strongest Magic Mushroom Strain)

Penis Envy is the strongest strain of Psilocybe cubensis. It’s worlds apart from other strains, producing up to 2.90% total tryptamines (average psilocybin level of 0.96%) — that’s two to three times as potent as the average strain. 

There’s a famous saying that goes, “Cubes are cubes, with the exception of Penis Envy” — an ode to its exceptional potency. 

This strain has an unusual history. Dennis and Terence McKenna likely discovered the original sample in the early 1970s. However, the original sample was vastly different from what it is today. The person responsible for altering its characteristics is believed to be Richard Gutierrez. This mycologist genetically manipulated the strain to give it its penis-like appearance and otherworldly potency. 

Since its creation, several genetic offshoots have been isolated, and new strains created using Penis Envy genetics. Strains that contain Penis Envy genetics belong to “the Penis Envy series.”

Other strains in the Penis Envy series:

3. Argentina Strain (Best Contamination Resistance)

The Argentina Strain was first discovered in the mountainous rainforests of Argentina. The mushrooms this strain produces are relatively small and averagely potent, but they grow in dense flushes — making high yields possible.

This strain is famed for its contamination resistance and resistance to humidity and temperature fluctuations. It’s an aggressive colonizer and is capable of producing up to 10 flushes before succumbing to mold growth. It makes a fantastic strain for beginners, commercial growers, and outdoor cultivation (depending on the region).  

Other contamination-resistant strains:

4. Lipa Yai Strain (Best For High Yields)

The legendary shroom hunter John Allen discovered the Lipa Yai strain on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand. It shares several similarities with the Koh Samui strain but produces tall, thin mushrooms. 

This strain is capable of producing huge yields over several successful, dense flushes. It’s contamination and disease-resistant and can be grown by beginners thanks to its ability to thrive in unoptimized conditions. It has average potency (similar to Golden Teacher shrooms) and looks like “a typical cube.”

The Lipa Yai strain is an excellent choice for commercial cultivators and beginner growers who want to produce large amounts of mushrooms. However, it’s not the only high-yielding P. cubensis strain out there…

Other high-yielding strains:

5. Allen Strain (Fastest from Spore to Harvest)

The Allen Strain was discovered by the legendary mushroom hunter John Allen during his trip through Southeast Asia in the 1990s. It was found growing in Baan Taling Ngam on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand. 

This is a popular strain among the mushroom community because it produces dense flushes of thin, tall mushrooms. It’s famed for its rapid colonization times — colonizing jars with mycelium 10 to 20% faster than most other Psilocybe cubensis strains. 

If you’re looking for the fastest strain to grow from spores, the Allen Strain is the best choice. However, there are a few other strains famed for their quick growth. 

Other fast-growing strains:

6. Albino Penis Envy (Best Albino Strain)

Albino Penis Envy (APE) is identical to the original Penis Envy except for one key trait — the fruits are completely colorless. These ghostly-white shrooms share the same phallic shape and otherworldly potency as the original strain but can be a little more tricky to grow — being more prone to aborts.

It can be difficult to produce high yields of Albino Penis Envy shrooms, so we don’t recommend this strain to beginners. For those with a good understanding of the cultivation process and some experience growing Psilocybe cubensis, APE can be rewarding.

This strain produces an average psilocybin level of 0.93% and a total tryptamine level of 1.10% (slightly lower than the original strain). If white magic mushrooms intrigue you, Albino Penis Envy isn’t the only option. There are several albino and leucistic (low-pigmented) strains to choose from, many of which are easier to grow. 

Other albino P. cubensis strains:

How to Find Magic Mushrooms in the Wild

If you’re not willing to risk buying magic mushrooms online or growing them at home and enjoy getting out into nature, foraging for wild shrooms may be a better option. 

A variety of different magic mushroom species grow wild across the globe. With a bit of knowledge, time, and a keen eye, it’s possible to find large amounts of potent mushrooms in nature. 

It’s important to educate yourself before heading out foraging for psychedelic or edible mushrooms. Misidentifying a species can be fatal. I recommend purchasing a local field guide and a detailed psychedelic mushroom I.D book such as Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World by the legendary mycologist Paul Stamets

What Species of Psilocybin Mushrooms Grow in the United States?

Several species of psilocybin-producing mushrooms grow wild in the United States. You’ll find Psilocybe cubensis, P. azurescens, P. cyanescens, P. semilanceata, P. Baeocystis, and many more, depending on the state and region you’re in. 

Find out more:

Amanita muscaria — known commonly as Fly Agaric — is a psychoactive mushroom species that doesn’t produce psilocybin, making it legal in most countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and most of Europe. 

You probably recognize this mushroom. Its image is famous worldwide, appearing in Alice and Wonderland books and films and the Super Mario games — it even has its own emoji 🍄.

The main psychoactive compound in A. Muscaria is muscimol. It’s an oneirogen and mild sedative that’s capable of inducing altered perception and dreamlike states of consciousness. The effects can be described as psychedelic, but they’re very different from those induced by psilocybin mushrooms. 

Amanita muscaria can’t be consumed raw like psilocybin mushrooms. They must be prepared through decarboxylation to ensure the toxic prodrug of muscimol (ibotenic acid) is fully converted. If these mushrooms aren’t prepared properly, they can cause adverse side effects such as stomach discomfort, nausea, vomiting, and profuse sweating. 

Preparing Amanita muscaria mushrooms for consumption is relatively simple, but getting it wrong could be dangerous. If you’re interested in experiencing the effects of Amanita muscaria but don’t want to source and prepare the mushrooms yourself, there’s another alternative. 

Amanita muscaria Gummies & Tinctures

The best Amanita edibles are made using a muscimol extract sourced from wild-harvested A. muscaria gummies.

Unfortunately, most Amanita gummies don’t contain natural extracts because sourcing high-quality mushrooms and consistently obtaining a potent extract is difficult and expensive. This is because you can’t grow amanita mushrooms — you have to harvest them from the wild.

Many brands opt for synthetic (lab-made) muscimol, which is far less effective than an extract. Other brands opt for psychedelic research chemicals that are capable of inducing psychoactive effects but are potentially harmful if ingested.

Area 52 Magic Pluto Mushroom Gummies

Area 52 Magic Pluso Mushroom Gummies
Tripsitter Ranking10/10
Trust Score10/10
Potency Per Gummy (mg)20 mg muscimol
Sold ByArea 52

We’ve tried dozens of amanita gummies so far — but only one truly stands out — the Area 52 the Magic Pluto gummies from Area 52.

We’ve recommended other brands in the past, and these products are all decent, too, but nothing offers the same value for the money and hard-hitting effects as the Magic Pluto Gummies.

We believe the secret behind these gummies is the synergystic formula contained inside — which features other oneirogenic substances like Calea zacatechichi and blue lotus flower; along with calming agents like ashwagandha and L-theanine as well as cognitive nutrients like vitamin B6 and 5HTP.

These impressive gummies also contain a potent 15 mg delta-9 THC and 100 mg CBD (cannabidiol) from Area 52’s UFO MAX hemp extract.

This brand is one of the only brands offering hard proof they’re using authentic amanita shrooms in their production (the other one is Psyched Wellness). We have a sneaking suspicion that most amanita gummies on the market right now use synthetic muscimol or some other unlisted psychedelic compound.

Have a read through the FAQs below if you’re looking for a quick answer to a question you’ve been pondering:

1. How Many Species of Magic Mushrooms Exist?

There are over 180 different species of mushrooms that produce psilocybin

These species come in an array of different shapes, sizes, and potencies and grow in different environments across the globe. Most belong to the genus Psilocybe, including the “Liberty Cap” (Psilocybe semilanceata), “Flying Saucers” (Psilocybe azurescens), “Wavy Caps” (Psilocybe cyanescens), and “Cubes” (Psilocybe cubensis)

The most common species is Psilocybe cubensis. These mushrooms grow wild in several different regions across the globe. They’re also extremely easy to grow, making them a popular choice among commercial cultivators and amateur growers worldwide. 

Psilocybin-producing mushroom species also belong to other genera, such as Panaeolus, Inocybe, and Gymnopilus, although they’re less prevalent and often less potent than species in the Psilocybe genus. 

2. What’s the Strongest Type of Magic Mushroom?

The strongest species of psilocybin mushroom is Psilocybe azurescens. This shroom can produce three times the amount of psilocybin and psilocin than the average Psilocybe cubensis strain. 

Although tryptamine levels can vary from one specimen to another, the average Psilocybe azurescens mushroom produces around 1.78% psilocybin and 0.38% psilocin — 2.51% total tryptamines. 

The most potent strain of Psilocybe cubensis (the most prevalent magic mushroom species) is called Penis Envy. This strain gets its name from the phallic-shaped fruiting bodies it produces. 

Not only is the appearance of Penis Envy unique, but its potency is too. This strain is unlike any other P. cubensis mushroom — producing an average tryptamine content of 1.15% — 0.96% psilocybin and 0.15% psilocin. 

3. What’s the Difference Between Magic Mushrooms and Magic Truffles?

Magic mushrooms and magic truffles produce psilocybin in levels high enough to induce intense psychedelic experiences when ingested. They often grow as part of the same species but are remarkably different. 

Magic mushrooms grow above ground from the mycelium of psilocybin-producing fungi species such as Psilocybe cubensis. The mushroom’s primary function is to produce and disperse spores so the fungus can reproduce and spread. 

Magic truffles grow below ground from many of the same psilocybin-producing fungi that produce mushrooms. Although we call these below-ground growths “magic truffles,” they’re not reproductive bodies therefore aren’t strictly “truffles” in the traditional sense. Instead, they are “truffle-like growths” called sclerotia. 

Sclerotia are dense masses of mycelium that form to preserve the fungus through periods where fruiting (producing mushrooms) isn’t possible. 

These masses of mycelium can survive underground for several months until the right fruiting conditions are achieved. Sclerotia from magic mushroom species such as Psilocybe mexicana and Psilocybe tampanensis contain psilocybin, psilocin, and other tryptamines found in the mushrooms. 

4. Can You Make Magic Mushroom Edibles at Home?

Yes, you can make magic mushroom edibles at home. In fact, it’s safer to make shroom chocolates and gummies at home than to buy them online. By making your own edibles, you can be sure of the contents and potency — something that’s impossible to know when they’re bought. 

Magic mushroom chocolate bars can be made relatively easily at home. Your favorite chocolate bar can be melted down, and your chosen dose of dried shrooms can be finely ground and combined. The resulting mixture is then set in a mold.

Magic mushroom gummies are a little more complicated to make, but anyone can do it with some basic ingredients and some spare time. The process involves extracting the active compounds from the magic mushrooms, removing the organic matter, and combining the extract with agar powder, sugar, flavors, and colorings.
