Are psilocybin spores legal to buy and possess in 2020?

To some, purchasing psilocybin spores may seem like a risky venture, that could land you in trouble with your local authorities. You will be pleased to learn that buying psilocybin spores is actually legal in most places, throughout the world.

Below, we will discuss the laws about buying and possessing psilocybin spores, country by country.

Why are psilocybin spores legal?

Firstly, spores of psilocybin mushrooms are legal to buy simply because they do not contain the substances psilocin, or psilocybin, which are illegal.

Secondly, psilocybin spores are sold only for scientific research purposes, such as microscopy identification of wild mushrooms, or just general collection purposes.

When do psilocybin spores become illegal?

Psilocybin mushroom spores, even though not expressly made illegal by specific laws or State statutes, can become illegal. If your intent when purchasing the spores is to germinate them into mycelium or to manufacture or produce magic mushrooms, this is when the spores could become illegal.

Source of Spores does not sell magic mushroom spores for these, currently illegal purposes. Our products are only sold for microscopy, research, or general scientific purposes. We do not teach people how to grow psilocybin mushrooms.

Are psilocybin spores legal in the United States in 2020?

In the United States, psilocybin spores are legal to own and possess. Most states have made laws that criminalize the possession, transportation, manufacture, and distribution of all mushrooms that contain psilocybin. Most states do not have laws against having magic mushroom spores in one’s possession.

The only exceptions to this are the states Georgia, Idaho, and California.

Georgia and Idaho have specifically banned the importation of psilocybin spores into those states, by their residents.

California has banned the importation of psilocybin spores into the state only if the buyer has an intent to germinate the spores or manufacture psilocybin mushrooms.

Except as otherwise authorized by law, every person who, with intent to produce a controlled substance specified in paragraph (18) or (19) of subdivision (d) of Section 11054, cultivates any spores or mycelium capable of producing mushrooms or other material which contains such a controlled substance shall be punished by imprisonment in the county jail for a period of not more than one year or in the state prison.

Are psilocybin spores legal in Australia?

Currently, Australia has heavy restrictions on psilocybin spores. It is legal to sell and possess spore prints in Australia. Spore syringes or cultures are not legal in Australia.

In 2020, it is nearly impossible to import psilocybin spores into Australia from other countries. The Australia Border Force has advanced detection methods that can spot psilocybin spores.

What is the difference between a spore syringe and a spore print?

A mushroom spore print is a dense cluster of spores that have fallen from the gills of a mushroom onto a flat surface, which takes the shape of the gills. Spore prints are used for making spore syringes.

This is what a mushroom spore print looks like:

A spore syringe is a premade product that contains the spores of a mushroom suspended in an aqueous solution. It should not contain any other spores or microbes. Typically a spore syringe will come with a sterile needle for easy dispensing onto microscope slides.

This is what a properly made spore syringe looks like:

Should I buy a spore syringe or a spore print?

If you are a beginner it is recommended that you purchase a pre-made syringe. Making spore syringes yourself from spore prints does require special equipment to create a sterile environment. Without this specialized, and expensive equipment your chances of getting contaminant spores in your solution are very high. This will cause your experiments to fail. By purchasing spore syringes pre-made, from a reliable source, your chances of success in your microscopy experiments are very high.

What is the difference between a strain and a species of psychedelic mushroom?

Psilocybe Cubensis mushrooms

There are several common species of psilocybin mushroom spores that are sold online. The majority of them are either sub-tropical to tropical species, preferring dung, or areas of land that are well fertilized, where dung used to be, I. E. composted manure. The not so common varieties are commonly called “exotic,” although the majority of psilocybin genera spores are technically exotic if you live in the United States. Some of these species include:

  • Psilocybe cubensis
  • Panaeolus cyanesens
  • Psilocybe cyanesens
  • Psilocybe Mexicana

Strains of Psychedelic Mushroom Spores

Magic mushrooms tend to have different strains, which are named typically after the location in which they are found, or the physical characteristics that are observed. Some are more potent than others in the amount of psilocybin or psilocin content that is contained within them, some will be larger, or smaller, and some may have different coloration, or become mutated like in the case of Penis Envy.

Which Strain of Psilocybin Spores is the Best?

A common question that we receive is which spore strain is the best for a beginner. It can be difficult at first to choose or know what kind of spore syringe is best for the beginner to buy. Any strain of psilocybe cubensis that you are innately drawn to is the best to start with, except for penis envy spores, or albino penis envy spores. The reason why is because they are more difficult to use than non-mutated strains.

All of the strains of Psilocybe cubensis that we sell in our online store will be fine for the beginner. The majority of our spore banks are actually descendants from original prints of mushrooms that were harvested from the wild in the locations specified, and all will be great for the beginner. What most people are confused about is what genus and species to start with. We recommend Psilocybe cubensis spores for the beginner, as they are larger and easier to work with.

  1. How long are the syringes good for if kept refrigerated?

  2. I ordered spores from here a few weeks ago. The came in the mail quickly. I have not used them yet because I have been very busy, but they look great. Very dark syringes with tons of spores floating around. I will make some time this week to use them and report back. 5 stars!

  3. Great vendor! I have purchased from a few, but what sets SOS apart from others is the sheer amount of spores you get in each syringe. No other vendor even comes close!

  4. Is this available in the US?

  5. 5 star rating so far. Just placed my first order today and I’m very impressed with the amount of detailed information on this site. According to the reviews I’ve read, I should have no worries about the rest of the ordering/shipping process. Fingers crossed, I hope to write another 5 star review once my order is fulfilled. Thanks

  6. The website is so informative and ordering was simple. Waiting anxiously!!!!

  7. So I just ordered my first grow kit but since I’m new to this I didn’t know what are good starter spores?

    1. Psilocybe cubensis is the species most people start with. Browse them, read the descriptions, and choose what reaches out to you in your mind!

  8. I’m gonna try and keep this short
    First off excellent shipping!!!
    3 days from Vermont to the Bay Area!!!
    And good quality syringe,
    no bending from the rubber injection port.
    I ordered 7 and got 10!!! Thanks for the free ones
    And I’m no expert and this is no way meant as negative but around half of them weren’t dark at all?
    A lot floating around but white to off white in color.
    Maybe a live culture? Not sure but if so that’s fine
    I’ve read they colonize way faster than spores
    And it’s been only a few days and there’s already growth!!! Thank you guys

  9. Thanks for the advice on how to pick my first strains! I was instantly drawn to Golden Teacher because I want to learn about myself and the universe. I am seeking some kind of enlightenment that I don’t know how to describe. I’m getting these!

    1. I myself have successfully grown and harvested the Cambodian strain (not from this website though) and found them to not be as abundant or that powerfull. I might have yielded more if I had dunked my cakes though.

  10. I can’t wait to try these!! So many awesome strains!

  11. How long can you store a spore syringe?

    1. All mushroom spore syringes are not created equal. It really depends on how they are made, assembled and stored. A spore syringe that is kept in a cool dark place, like a shoebox in a closet, that was properly assembled with a tip cap on the syringe, instead of a needle, and never opened, can be stored for several years.

  17. Because your website is new, I was a little skeptical at first, but I purchased one spore syringe to give you guys a shot. I am really happy that I did. The spore syringe was FULL of spores, way more than the other two more popular vendors that I used. I saw growth in all my jars in three days! The other guys haven’t even done anything yet. I just purchased 10 more a minute ago! Thanks for the great products and service!
