Species and Varieties
About[edit | edit source]
The most commonly cultivated active mushrooms are Psilocybe Cubensis.
Genus of Psilocybe, species of cubensis.
Psilocybe cubensis can be broken down into certain domesticated varieties, usually named after the location found in, or the person who found them.
This is not true all the time - B+ and Golden Teacher were named by the person who originally found and brought the species back to the lab for cultivation.
Ecuador on the other hand is named after where it was found, in Ecuador at an elevation of about 10,000 feet up in the mountains.
All Cubensis mushrooms fall into the Genus Psilocybe, along with a few other non cubensis active species like Psilocybe Cyanacens or Psilocybe Cyanofriscosa. These are not cubensis but they are in the genus Psilocybe because they actively produce Psilocybin and psilocin, the chemical that makes you hallucinate.
There are more factors that place a mushroom in a genus than just their active ingredients.
It has a lot more to do with physical and macroscopic characteristics.
Any name you see, such as B+, Treasure Coast, Gulf Coast, A+, Australian, Amazon, Cambodian, they are the name of the particular variety of cubensis. The genus and species of Psilocybe cubensis doesnt change, but the variety will.
When growing from spores everything is random, and you are creating thousands
upon thousands of strains when you grow from spores.
