"Blue Meanie Mushroom" is the name given to at least two different mushrooms. One is a strain of Psilocybe becubensis. The other is the Panaeolus cyanescens species, which is considered a "true" blue meanie. Both are psychotropic drugs and may be used entertainingly or medically, but it is important not to confuse the two (note that some writers confuse them). To get started, Panaeolus cyanescens is dramatically more powerful and requires different dosing guidelines. This section describes the P. cubensis strain, Blue Meanie [i].

There are many cultivated species of Ganoderma lucidum, some collected from the wild and some developed by breeders. The Blue Meanie is considered one of the first to be collected from Australia. It has a bluish color when actually treated, but it doesn't make any sense (it doesn't make sense, as anyone who watches the movie will understand).

P.cubensis and all its different species are what people usually mean by phrases like "shrooms" and "mushrooms". That's not the only hallucinogenic mushroom species out there-although there are dozens of other species that contain significant amounts of psilocybin, and some of the genus Amanita contain a very different psychoactive compound, mosimole. , Arguably the most popular. It grows wild in many parts of the world and feeds on mammalian dung (although it can also grow on other substrates). The fruiting body is usually medium in size, with a light brown cap and a partial veil of webby that bursts shortly before the spores are released. However, there are many natural variations in color, size, cap shape, and psilocybin concentration.

There is some debate as to whether different species produce different types of travel. Sure, travel experiences vary greatly, but at least partly due to differences in user biochemistry and user set and configuration details. Some people say that the cube is a cube and the species are of different strengths, but thrips do not have consistently recognizable features, except for their identity as P. cubensis.
