Magic Mushroom Spore Syringe
Magic Mushroom Spore Syringe in many countries, psilocybin mushroom spores sit in a grey area of the law. You might be able to legally buy them, yet germinating the spores remains illegal in most countries. However, if you’re still wondering where to buy psilocybin spores, unless you’re in the Netherlands, be prepared to shop around the internet or spend some time in online forums. Then, once you do buy them, be aware that germination is still illegal.
Magic Mushroom Spore Syringe
Magic Mushroom Spore Syringe is simply a syringe containing two ingredients: water and mushroom spores. The water does not contain any nutrients and acts simply as a suspension for the spores. As the water used is typically a distilled, non-nutrient H20, the spores won’t germinate and start producing mycelium. This is an important point to note because as soon as mycelium starts forming, the legal status completely changes.
Magic Mushroom Spores Legal To Buy?
Our most commonly asked question is whether buying spore syringes, such as these spore syringes sold at Mycotown is legal?
The answer in most cases is a resounding yes, BUT, it also depends. To understand why Magic Mushroom Spore Syringe are generally legal you have to understand:
1) what a Magic Mushroom Spore Syringe is, and
2) the legal legislation surrounding psilocybe cubensis spores.
First, it’s important to clarify the type of spore syringes we are referring to. In theory, creating a spore syringe from any mushroom is possible, as all mushrooms produce spores. We are therefore referring to any spore syringes containing mushroom spores that when cultivated contain psilocybin, e.g., psilocybe cubensis or panaeolus cyanescens.
Why are spore syringes legal?
While laws vary depending on location, the drug associated with magic mushrooms that is banned in all but a few countries, is psilocybin. During digestion, the human body breaks down psilocybin into psilocin, which contains psychedelic properties; hence the name “magic mushrooms”.
When Magic Mushroom Spores Become Illegal
While you may be in your legal right to buy spores, germinating them is still prohibited. Both mycelium and fruiting mushrooms contain psilocybin, which is federally illegal. As soon as spores begin to germinate into mycelium, law enforcement can legally charge you with cultivation or possession of a controlled substance. The same goes for the possession or sale fresh and dried psilocybin mushrooms.
Psilocybin laws vary wildly across the globe. In Indonesia, for example, getting caught with psychedelic mushrooms or their spores is punishable by the death penalty. Meanwhile, in Jamaica, Brazil, Samoa, and the British Virgin Islands, mushrooms and their spores are legal to cultivate and possess.
Where to Buy Psilocybin Mushroom Spores in Canada
Canada is a smidge more relaxed about psilocybin than its southern neigboors but, just barely. Psilocybin spores, grow kits, and mycelium are legal to cultivate in Canada. Dried and fresh mushrooms, however, are not. So, purchasing spores with the intent to cultivate is not legal, but buying spores for research and collection purposes is a-okay. Most mushroom spores in Canada are sold over the internet in spore syringes and spore prints.
Why do people buy spore syringes then?
People buy spore syringes for two reasons:
- For the purposes of studying the spores under a microscope, as hobbyists or mycology researchers. Learn more here.
- To cultivate mushrooms. This is legal in some countries and the law, as previously mentioned, is constantly changing. Denver has become the first US city to decriminalise magic mushrooms, with other cities following suit. Given the research currently being undertaken on the benefits of psilocybin for people suffering from conditions such as depression and PTSD, we believe this trend will continue. If Big Pharma decides psilocybin is a drug they can use, it would be unsurprising if psilocybin starts to become legal in those countries they wish to distribute. There are also many supporters touting the benefits of micro-dosing psilocybin, with websites such as: thethirdwave.co providing information and courses on how to do this.
While we don’t promote magic mushroom use in any way, we believe the laws surrounding magic mushrooms are absurd. In our opinion, the government should not dictate the legal right of an adult to ingest anything that grows completely naturally. Additionally, reports showing the dangers of different substances show psilocybin to be much less harmful than e.g., alcohol, as shown in this chart from https://tripsafe.org/shrooms/
