Blue Meanies


Blue Meanie shrooms are considered as some of the world’s most potent Shrooms. They contain double to triple the normal amount of Psilocybin compared to other Shroom strains. The most distinguished characteristic of the Blue Meanies is the blue colouring along the stem.


What are blue meanies?

Blue meanies (panaeolus cyanescens or p. cyanescens) are a variety of psychedelic mushroom belonging to the Coprinaceae family, a hallmark of which is the spotty appearance of their gills (1).

Here’s where things get a little muddled. There isn’t a clear consensus on what to call this mushroom, and there’s quite a bit of confusion regarding the scientific names too. We’ll do our best to keep things simple and straightforward to eliminate confusion.

Blue meanies may also be called copelandia cyanescens, agaricus cyanescens, and pan cyans.

Several species of mushrooms in the Panaeolus family produce psilocybin or psilocin, and most of them also produce urea, serotonin, and tryptophan (1). Both psilocybin and psilocin are a type of alkaloid structurally similar to serotonin and responsible for a mushroom’s hallucinogenic effects (2).

But here’s the thing about psilocybin vs. psilocin: psilocybin isn’t psychoactive, so it’s not responsible for the feelings of being on a trip. It’s not until you ingest psilocybin that it turns into psilocin, which does cause psychedelic effects. The process typically takes around 30 minutes.

Psst: You can explore different strains of psychedelic mushrooms, like wavy caps (psilocybe cyanescens), “subs” (psilocybe subaeruginosa) as well as penis envy and golden teacher mushrooms (strains of psilocybe cubensis). All of these are psilocybin-containing mushrooms.
