Psilocybe Mexicana “A-Strain” Spore Swab Pack


If you want to buy lab quality Mexicana A spore swabs, be cautious as Mexicana A 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 these 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 Mexicana A swabs, visibility is dependent on the characteristics of the spores themselves. As a result, not all spore syringes will look the same visibly. Some may have some black clumps or specs in them and others may appear clear to the naked eye. Despite these visible differences, spore syringes are still made to be viable for microscopy research.

Psilocybe Mexicana “A-Strain” Spores Information

Psilocybe mexicana have a rich history that goes back at least 2,000 years. It was a very important part of Aztec culture, specifically. The Psilocybe mexicana mushroom’s main use in their culture was for religious/ceremonial purposes.  In the Aztec language it goes by the name of “Teonanacatl” which translates to “God’s Flesh”. 

Despite its long history, Roger Heim only introduced Psilocybe mexicana to Western society in 1956. Later, Albert Hoffman would run tests on the specimens and subsequently do the first isolation of psilocybin and psilocin in a lab. 

Psilocybe mexicana “A-Strain” especially is in high demand due to its ability to form sclerotia. The A-Strain is able to produce both normal fruits and sclerotia, whereas the B-strain is unable to produce any sclerotia. 

Foil prints of these HEPA Grade Mexicana “A – Strain” spores can be hard to come by because they are in such high demand. The difficulty associated with gathering their spores does not help.  We make it a mission to try and always carry these spores, although supply shortages can still happen. Because of its rich history and rarity, anyone would be lucky to have this unique print as an addition to their spore library.
