Can you eat Psilocybe Azurescens?
The concentration of the psychoactive biochemicals psilocybin and psilocin is higher here than in any other mushroom. They reportedly produce intensely powerful hallucinations; transcendent journeys of great personal impact from as little as one gram. They must therefore be consumed safely and responsibly.
Azurescens are only found on the West coast of the U.S. from California to Washington, and mostly cluster near the Columbia River delta in Oregon. That’s because they prefer to live in sandy soils, such as near dunes and sea grasses, and on loose, decaying wood. They can even withstand pretty chilly temperatures compared to other psilocybin containing mushrooms, from 16 to 24° C (60 – 75° F). Fortunately, that also makes Azzies easy to cultivate outside for home growers in the U.S. and Europe. Unfortunately, though, they apparently taste very bitter.
