The term “Blue Meanie” can be a bit confusing, as it’s used to describe different species and strains of psychedelic mushrooms. There are actually two primary fungi referred to as “Blue Meanies”:

  1. Panaeolus cyanescens: This is a potent psilocybin-containing mushroom commonly found in tropical and subtropical regions. When people refer to “Blue Meanies” in places like Australia, they’re often talking about this species. It’s known for its potency and for bluing strongly when bruised, which is a reaction of the psilocybin oxidizing.

  2. Psilocybe cubensis ‘Blue Meanie’: This is a specific strain of Psilocybe cubensis that also goes by the name “Blue Meanie.” It’s distinct from Panaeolus cyanescens. Like other P. cubensis strains, it’s used for its psychoactive properties, and it also exhibits a strong blue bruising reaction when damaged. This is the product you’re looking at right now!

The origin of the Psilocybe cubensis ‘Blue Meanie’ strain is not entirely clear. Like many other popular mushroom strains, its history has become a bit blurred over time due to the underground nature of mushroom cultivation and the lack of formal documentation. However, it’s known to have been cultivated and shared among enthusiasts for several decades.

It’s believed that the Ps. cubensis variety of Blue Meanie mushrooms were first discovered in Australia, where they are believed to have originated from a strain of Psilocybe cubensis. The name “Blue Meanie” was popularized in the 1970s by the Beatles movie “Yellow Submarine,” in which the Blue Meanies were depicted as villains. Since then, the name has been used to refer to a variety of different strains of blue-colored mushrooms.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Mushroom Spore Print is the first (or last!?) stage in the reproductive lifecycle of a fungus! Once a mushroom fruiting body has reached maturiy, the cap is separated from the stipe and placed on aluminum foil. After some time, the gills will release the spores held on the basidium, and they will fall to the foil!
