Blue meanie mushrooms (Panaeolus cyanescens, formerly Copelandia cyanescens) — also known as “blue meanies” — are a highly potent species of psilocybin mushroom.
First, you should be aware that blue meanies grow in the wild.
So if you wanted to source them by picking them (instead of buying them from a street dealer or on the dark web), then you need to know what they look like.
The first necessary step in identifying blue meanies in the wild is knowing where they grow.
This means being aware of the kind of habitat they grow in, as well as the countries where you’ll find them.
Panaeolus cyanescens is a tropical/subtropical grassland species, often found in dung (just like Psilocybe cubensis).
In tropical regions, blue meanies grow year-round. In the subtropics, they grow from late spring to autumn (depending on rain and humidity).
These mushrooms have been found in several countries in Africa, Oceania, The Caribbean, Central America, South America, South Asia, East Asia, Europe, and the United States.
