Psilocybe Cubensis in Oakland Continue to article
Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom, the principal active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Commonly called cubes, gold caps, golden tops, magic mushrooms or shrooms, belonging to the fungus family Hymenogastraceae and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis. It is the best known psilocybin mushroom due to its wide distribution and ease of cultivation.
Buying psilocybe cubensis or shrooms in Oakland might be tricky dependant on whether or not classed as a drug in United States of America. Luckily with the laws are changing in United States of America and you might see it legalised sooner than later if still illegal. We don’t recommend buying from dealers or off the streets of Oakland, a good idea would be to research some online magic mushroom dispensaries in United States of America. (Always check local laws)
Growing psilocybe mushrooms would be the best option, at first it may seem overwhelming but over time you will grow shrooms like a master psychonaut. You will need to find spores in Oakland or shop online and have the spores delivered While we do sell spores via Mushly Shop, we recommend supporting other Mycologists, so shop around.
Maybe do a course, find a local mushroom growing teacher in Oakland who offers mushroom workshops and training, they might not offer lessons in psilocybe cubensis, but the same basic mushroom methods will apply. And if you don’t have any in the area, maybe this an opportunity for you to one day offer mushroom workshops. Search YouTube or watch this video we found online should you need to teach yourself.
Choosing your first Psilocybe Cubensis strain can be hard, but we would recommend Golden Teacher shroom spores seen as it the best selling strain sold via Mushly and I’m sure many other spore retailers. The name 'Golden Teacher' refers to the golden color of the golden tops and stems and the way it teaches people about spore microscopy. But the choice is yours!
Finding supplies in Oakland should't be too hard. Here is the basic shopping list to grow PF Tek method :
Shoulderless half-pint jars with lids (Kerr or Ball)
Organic brown rice flour (organic food stores)
Horticultural vermiculite (medium or fine grade - not powdery)
Distilled or filtered drinking water
Heavy duty Tin Foil
Micropore Medical Tape
Your Spores you selected
Now that you have your training done, bought the supplies and put it all together you will end up with jars whereby the mycelium will grow. You will now need to wait two to four weeks for the mycelium to full the jars and then move to fruiting.
"Patience is a virtue in life as when cultivating mushrooms”
Fruiting time and you will soon reap what you have spawn. You will need to introduce light, the right temperature and humidity. Soon the pins to show then grow into full mushrooms. This is a magical time to see your first grow that will lead to many more.
