Psilocybe cyanescens is a potent member of the hallucinogenic mushroom family, also called “wavy caps.” The main compounds responsible for inducing psychedelic effects are psilocybin and psilocin. It may share similarities with other magic mushroom types, but it is distinguished by its appearance and quantity of psychoactive compounds.
Psilocybe Cyanescens, also called the Wavy Cap Mushroom, is also another potent, wood-loving psilocybe fungus. In the Pacific Northwest, several different hardwoods have been found. One of the most strong psilocybe mushrooms is known as P. Cyanescens. It comprises 85% psilocybin, 30% psilocin, and 0% basilocystin, all of which are hallucinogenic psilocybes.
