Blue Meanie Mushroom
Blue meanie mushroom ( shrooms ) are one of the strongest psilocybin containing mushrooms. They have an unassuming stature and they produce small medium-sized brown to white mushrooms. They are very easy for amateur enthusiasts to overlook when foraging. However don’t be mistaken, these dark blue mushrooms when picked pack a punch.
Mushrooms from the genus panaeolus cyanescens are super common, they grow globally in tropical and temperate environments. panaeolus cyanescens is a tropical and subtropical grassland species which is often found in dung just like another familiar mushroom. You could easily miss a patch of them while foraging for the more popular psilocybin cubensis which would be a big bummer.
Because you’re probably looking for psilocybin-containing mushrooms and as mentioned these are strong.

Blue Meanie mushrooms are a mushroom like no other, they’re simply extraordinary. magic mushroom blue meanie are very wonderful and exciting for a trip or to Microdose on.
Identifying blue meanies
In a field, blue meanies mushrooms tend to be light gray or off-white at maturity. When they’re young the caps are light brown and then fade to off-white or light gray. Occasionally they have yellowish or brownish tones, the caps are approximately 0.5 to 2 centimeters in diameter. At first they’re hemispheric and they expand to bell-shaped or convex. When young the caps are slightly hygrophilous which means that they lose their color as they dry out and they often develop cracks in dry weather.
The stem or stipe tends to be seven to twelve centimeters long, two to three millimeters thick and the width is equal along the length. Its slightly enlarged at the base, the stem is colored like the cap and covered in a fine white powder. These mushrooms have a flower-like smell, taste. And like with other psilocybin-containing fungi when they’re damaged the mushrooms bruise greenish or blue. That can often be seen on the cap or the stem with bloominess.
Where do meanies grow
As mentioned blue meanie mushroom (panaeolus cyanescens) is a tropical and subtropical species. In tropical regions the mushrooms grow year round, in the subtropics they grow from late spring to autumn depending on the rain and humidity. They’re also known to occur in temperate zones during wet and humid parts of the summer. Blue meanies are mostly found growing on cattle or horse dung in pastures and fields. they grow singly (separately or individually) and they also grow in groups. They appear in spring or during rainy seasons. Their range in the united states is from florida along the gulf coast where, it fruits virtually around cow pies.
Blooming’s were actually thought to have been introduced to other countries by the movement of livestock. It’s assumed that paniolo cyanescence was introduced to the islands of hawaii during the early 1800s when cattle were imported there from the philippines. Now they occur throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the northern and southern hemispheres. In addition blue meanies are commonly found in Mexico, South America, Colombia, Bolivia. Brazil, Peru, Eastern Australia, India, Bali, Southeast Asia, South Africa, France and Italy. Thus blue meanies grows in much of the world.
About Meanie Mushrooms
Blue Meanie Mushroom comes from the genus panaeolus cyanescens, mushrooms belonging to this widespread genus are generally small and have black spores. They often grow on dung but not all paniolis contain Psilocybin. The panaeolus cyanescens contains 13 species that produce psilocybin including panaeolus cyanescens ( blue meanies) which we’re talking about. Paniolis mushrooms are called modal gills due to the irregular spots or patches of color on their gills but there’s something else worth noting about this particular species.
Panaeolus cyanescens is a mushroom with many names, so many names in fact that knowing what to call this particular species can be very confusing so to start with the basics. The name paniolis in Greek means all ‘variegated‘ and it’s describing the mushroom’s spotted texture. These species name cyanescens is derived from ‘cyaneus‘ meaning blue for the color, the flesh becomes when bruising.
Rumor has it that the common name Blue Meanie actually came from the Beatles Psychedelic film Yellow Submarine. According to some other mycologists the common name was coined in Australia and apart from gold tops, blue meanies mushroom is one of the most commonly used.
Blue Meanie Cubensis Mushrooms
P cyanescens which is very common to abbreviate the first letter of the genus which precedes the name of the species p psilocybin paniolis .It’s worth noting though that even though these two species of mushrooms are abbreviated, the same way they are very different. The first one is a dung lover (blue meanie mushroom) and the other one is a wood lover. They also have comparable levels of psilocybin which is the compound people typically attribute to what makes you trip.
Finally this mushroom is called Pancion after its new Latin name, so all of this began early on for this mushroom. All the confusion pantolysis cyanescens or blue meanies shrooms were first described in Sri-Lanka as agaricus cyanescens in 1871. A few years later it was described by another mycology expert from the Philippines who named it copelandia papillonacia.
It was then named copalandia cyanescens by another mycologist in 1951 and the species was named paniolescence cyanescens. What we’re referring to it as in 1887 which is now its official formal name. The genus copelandia was deprecated meaning that it’s no longer valid. Panelist cyanescens is thought to have originated in Asia and the mushroom belongs to the family copra nasier. The same family is the common mushroom copronus comatis which you might know by the common name lawyer’s wig.
Potency of blue meanie mushrooms
The potency of blue meanies as mentioned are known to be pretty strong. The inventor of lsd chemist Albert Hoffman analyzed blue meanies, then known as copelandia cyanescens in the early 1960s after reports of quote intoxications caused by dung-loving fungi from southern France. Hoffman found Celosin 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 Albert Hoffman, their true origins eventually came to light.
They were growing from the dung of horses bought from Indonesia . This species is potent, the effects of blue meaning mushrooms may come on quickly due to their higher levels of psilocin than psilocybin. blue meanies are often reported to be two to three times the strength of silas b cubensis. Yet there’s very little published data to support those claims. And it’s important to remind everybody that we really don’t have a lot of rigorous scientific data.
Generally speaking, looking at the potency of different varieties of psychedelic mushrooms. Arrow wood reports that these mushrooms have a combined psilocybin and psilocin content of between 0.5 to 2.95% dry and weight . In 1992 there was a mycology expert who said that their potency was variable from. 0.17 to 0.95 % psilocin and 0.16 to 0.19 %.
