Psilocybin spores are the spores that grow into what is known as “magic mushrooms.” These spores are legal to transport, which is why they are highly sought after by people who can’t find a proper source for psilocybin mushrooms in their area, despite the fact that the mushrooms themselves might be legal where they live.
Research shows that psilocybin isn’t actually present in the spores, which is why their legality is somewhat less of an issue than that of the mushrooms themselves. As healthy microscopic mushroom spores grow, they develop the special compound, psilocybin, which is responsible for the mushrooms’ mind-altering effects and also for some impressive health benefits that researchers and doctors have only just recently learned about. These can include important anti-inflammatory effects, the ability to treat and control pain and the treatment of anxiety, depression and other mental conditions. Recent research in this field even shows psilocybin to have a positive effect on healing psychological trauma resulted from bullying and racial or gender-related emotional abuse.
If you want to start growing magic mushrooms at home, it’s important to check the legality of the mushrooms in your area and always stick to psilocybin spores when it comes to transporting them. The spores can be grown with less difficulty at home than many other plants and compounds with consciousness-altering capabilities, and you can buy them online at a lower cost than the actual mushrooms.
