Psilocybe Azurescens Swab Pack


To ensure the cleanest possible products, all of our Psilocybe Azurescens spore swabs are made and packaged in front of Laminar Flow Hoods with HEPA filters (99.97% efficiency rating). The spore swabs are made by swabbing the spores directly and resealing the swabs in sterile packaging.


Psilocybe Azurescens Spore Swab Pack


If you want to buy clean Psilocybe Azurescens mushrooms swabs, be cautious as Psilocybe Azurescens spore swabs are “active spores” which are for microscopy or artistic purposes. We will not complete your order if you contact us regarding the cultivation of active spores. Similarly, for legal reasons if you mention cultivation of these spores or ask for cultivating advice, you will be subsequently banned from the site.

These spores are from a species that produces psilocybin and psilocin. For legal reasons can only ship to 47 out of the 50 United States. Shipping is unavailable to California, Idaho, and Georgia.

Sonoran Spores acquires spores and photos from outside, trusted sources in a legal manner. Further, Sonoran Spores does not condone or participate in the cultivation of psilocybin/psilocin producing or “active” species. Sonoran Spores also does not have any mycelium or fruiting bodies of psilocybin and psilocin producing species. We will not sell any products containing this so do not ask.

Spore Visibility Disclaimer: When you buy Azurescens mushroom spores, visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore swabs will look the same visually. All swabs are unique and may not look identical to each other or the picture above. Despite these visible differences, spore swabs are still viable for microscopy research.

Psilocybe Azurescens Spore Information

Psilocybe Azurescens is a very popular mushroom species to study underneath the microscope that goes by a multitude of other names. These include, Flying Saucers, Blue Meanies, Blue Angels, Blue Runners, and many more. To begin, the back story of this species discovery depicts a group of Boy Scout boys setting up camp near the mouth of the Columbia River back in 1979. Later, in 1995, Paul Staments formally named it “Psilocybe Azurescens.” In addition, this was a tribute to his son, Azureus.
Mycologists know these fungi primarily grow naturally along coastlines amongst coastal dunes as well as within coastal grass clumps. Furthermore, they are usually found growing on soils or sands that are abundant in ligneous debris. Meaning, that in nature they prefer woody substrates in nature. Their mycelium is dense, string, extensive and known to grip the substrate firmly. Their fruiting season is late September when the cold weather begins. This continues into late December to early January and can tolerate to early January. This means they can tolerate extremely cold temperatures.

To conclude, we strive to provide you with the cleanest possible products. So, we make and package all of the Azurescens spore swabs in front of Laminar Flow Hoods with HEPA filters. These HEPA filters have an efficiency rating of 99.97%. Meaning that the filter removes 99.97% of particles in the air.
