Psilocybe Cyanescens genetics


Psilocybe Cyanescens (sometimes referred to as wavy caps or as the potent Psilocybe) is a species of potent psychedelic mushroom whose main active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin, however, more than 30 other psychoactive alkaloids have been found in the mycelium and fruiting bodies of this (and several other) Psilocybe species.

A formal description of the species was first published by Elsie Wakefield in 1946, part of her work \”The Transactions of the British Mycological Society\”. Her description was based on a specimen she had recently collected at Kew Gardens, but she had begun collecting the species as early as 1910.
