What is copelandia cyanescens?
Many species of fungi contain tryptamine alkaloids - and one of them is Copelandia Cyanescens. This mind-altering/expanding or psychoactive seems to originally originate from Asia, but because this strain is mostly found and consumed on Hawaii, it is known as "The Hawaiian"
More than 180 species of fungi are acknowledged as containing the tryptamine alkaloids Psilocybin and/or Psilocin. All those species are Agaricales (gilled mushrooms) and include the genera Agrocybe, Galerina and Mycena (one species each), Conocybe (4 species), Inocybe (6 species), Hypholoma (6 species), Pluteus (6 species), Panaeolus (7 species), Copelandia (12 species), Gymnopilus (13 species) and Psilocybe (117 species).
The majority of the Psilocybe species are found in the humid, subtropical forests of New Guinea and Mexico. The most neurotropic fungi can be found in Mexico: 76 species. 44 of those species belong to Psilocybe - and those are constituting 39% of all Psilocybe species of the world.
Magic mushrooms have a long record of use in Mexico and are the most commonly and widely available and most popular natural psychedelic today.
