This is one of the many things that sets us apart from our competitors. Our competitors will tell you, “you cant see spores with your eyes because they are microscopic.” While this is a fact, you can see spores if they are clumped together by the millions. We ALWAYS provide spore syringes with visible spore clumps, because we pack that many spores into them. We are not stingy, and we make sure you get the most bang for your buck.

In fact, there is. We offer a 21 day from delivery NO QUESTIONS ASKED guarantee on all spore syringes on this website. Should your microscopy efforts prove to be impossible, we will send you a new item at our expense. However, this should not be an issue as we do use proper equipment, and sterile procedure, to create your items. We will not replace items that you received as a freebie. Only items that were actually paid for will be replaced.

Source of Spores DOES accept credit cards directly on our website. Credit card payments are accepted via 256 bit SSL encryption, which keeps your data safe. We do not store or even see your credit card information, it is sent directly to the credit card processor.

We do not accept paypal. It is against Paypal’s terms of service to sell our items through their network. Any vendor that is processing credit card payments or is using the Paypal network for payments when selling Psilocybe mushroom spores will eventually be caught and have their accounts frozen, and terminated 🙁 Likewise, we do not support Paypal, and also do not recommend that anyone else support them either, but this is just our opinion.

Simple answer: NO, there’s not. Source of Spores does not operate in a state where these items are illegal to posses, sell, import, or transport. It is solely your responsibility to know those laws in the state that you live in, not us, as we cannot be reasonably expected to keep up with every state’s laws, or even be expected to know how to interpret the law as it is written. Please make sure and research your state laws on the products that you want to purchase. It’s as simple as that. Follow all laws and regulations. DO NOT PURCHASE THESE PRODUCTS IF THEY ARE ILLEGAL TO IMPORT OR POSSESS WHERE YOU ARE! DO NOT PURCHASE THESE PRODUCTS IF YOU HAVE AN INTENT TO USE THEM FOR PURPOSES OTHER THAN MICROSCOPY, TAXONOMY, OR COLLECTION! If you need to have a permit to possess these spores, get one. We assume you have already done all this, like a reasonable person would. Do not purchase these products with the intent to use them for anything other than microscopy, taxonomy, or collection purposes. Abide by all state and federal laws, or provincial laws, if you are from Canada.

Source of Spores provides a very popular service that ships items all over the world. As a result, this is a very frequent question, that we are asked multiple times, on a daily basis, for mail order customers. When we receive your payment, our system will automatically notify you via email (so please make sure you type your email correctly when you order). Once we have confirmed your payment, we will mark your order for processing, which will change the status of your order from “on hold” to “processing.” This will automatically confirm that we have received your payment via email. The next notification will be a shipment confirmation email that contains your tracking number for your order. Although unnecessary, we highly recommend that you purchase tracking, or delivery confirmation for your payments, which will also tell you the location of your payment, and when it is delivered to our mailbox.

Source of Spores processes orders Monday through Friday. We do not check the mail until the afternoon, as it is often not delivered to our mailbox until after 2pm EST. We have no control over how long it will take for the shipping carrier you choose to deliver your payment to us, however, as soon as we receive your payment, we will process the order within 24 hours.

You do not necessarily need insurance for your shipping, however, we HIGHLY recommend that you purchase a shipping option with insurance. Should there be ANY issue with your order during the shipping and delivery stage that is the fault of the carrier (USPS for example), if you purchased a shipping option with insurance, we will contact USPS for you, AND send a new order, free of charge, the same or next business day after you contact us.

If you DO NOT have insurance, Source of Spores is not responsible for loss, theft, or damage to your order after it has been given to the shipping carrier, and you will have to contact the carrier to sort out any problems with your order, such as loss, theft, no delivery, etc.  If you do not purchase insurance, and there is a problem with the delivery of your order, you will be subject to a fee for us to send another.

For credit card transactions:

We process and ship orders made by credit card purchase the same or next business day, depending on the time that you order.

For mail order transactions:

Source of Spores processes payments received by mail every afternoon Monday – Friday. Your order will ship the following business day that we receive payment for your order.


Some of our items temporarily go out of stock from time to time, such as Albino Penis Envy. If we run out on orders that are ahead of yours, obviously it wont ship the same day. We usually get more of any item in within 2-3 days maximum. Please keep in mind that these spores are actually RARE items. We cannot go to wal-mart and buy more to restock.

Delivery times vary based on the shipping options you choose and pay for. If you choose our standard shipping, your order will arrive within 4-5 business days. Although sometimes faster. If you choose expedited shipping, your order will arrive in 2-3 business days. These time frames are accurate AFTER the items have left our warehouse.

Source of Spores ships your items in plain brown bubble mailers, or boxes, that do not bear our logo, or website name. There will be NO mention of the contents of the package on the packaging, anywhere. Every spore syringe comes in it’s own individual zipper bag made just for the syringe with an unopened sterile dispensing needle included.

Sometimes it happens that USPS does not update their “tracking” service as quick as we would like them to. It can take 24 hours for USPS to update their tracking. We literally have no control over this. In rare cases USPS does not update tracking at all until the package reaches the destination sort facility. This is because the service is sold as delivery confirmation and was only intended to confirm delivery, not actually act as a tracking service. In any event if you feel like there is an issue with shipment, please don’t hesitate to contact us

If you create an account, this will remain on the website until we delete the contents of the database, which we do periodically. We never store Ip addresses or payment information on this website. We are in the business of selling spores, not keeping information. If you send us emails, we delete emails automatically on the server after 1 week, and if you text us we delete threads once the conversation is finished. We do not save phone numbers, or any other identifying information.

Under some circumstances we will provide a refund. If you have placed an order, but have not received a shipment confirmation before you contact us, we will refund your order, subject to a 20% restocking fee. If we have already purchased a shipping label for you, the order is complete, and the sale is final. Due to the nature of the products we do not offer refunds, as it is impossible for us to print you a return shipping label, and resell the product, like many other companies can do, like Wal-Mart or Amazon. We will, however, replace any unusable items within the warranty period, free of charge.
