Psilocybe azurescens are classified as its own strain of magic mushroom. Most shrooms we carry at 3 Amigo are from from the psilocybin cubensis genus.
Psilocybe azurescens is considerably stronger than most psilocybin cubensis strains I.e golden teachers.
This strain was first documented by a group of Boy Scouts camping close to the Colombia River in Oregon in 1979. Years later, the legendary mycologist Paul Stamets formally named the mushroom “Psilocybe azurescens” after Stamets’ Son Azureus.
If hiking in BC, Keep an eye out for Azurescens, as they grow all along the forests of the Pacific North West. Their cap are caramel in colour and shaped like a nipple with serrated type edge and a thick stem. If you see a fresh azzie you’ll immediately know why they are named the flying saucer mushroom.

As always, be careful mixing these shrooms with other psychoactive substances like alcohol or marijuana.

I’ve been meaning to try azurescens for some time now and I’m glad I did. A group of 4 of us tried these together and the adventure was beyond surreal. These azurescens exceeded all expectations beyond our wildest dreams. Our new go-to strain. Arrived fast, solid packaging, quality product.. can’t ask for more! Highly recommended :)

These mfers were strong as hell. In terms of bang for your buck, these might be the best value proposition you can buy. I took what I thought was a small amount – 1.5 g and went on a pretty wild ride.
At the end of the day it’s still just psilocybin so if you are experienced with the substance there’s nothing you haven’t seen before but it’s just a lot more potent meaning you have to take less to get just as high as a cubensis variety. I’d estimate that I’d have to do twice as much Penis Envy to get a similar effect of 1.5g of Azurescens. For people like myself who have digestive issues when taking higher doses of mushrooms, this is another positive of doing Azurescens. Doing 3+ grams of cubensis always guarantees me a trip to the bathroom at some point during the trip.
Visually two things stood out: In mushrooms I usually get a swirly effect on patterns, on Azurescens I did not get the swirly effect, more like a pulsating in and out effect instead. The other thing I noticed is that my perception of size and distance were affected. Things that were near seemed far and things that were big seemed small and vice versa. That’s an something I’ve never experienced while on mushrooms but is common with my LSD experiences.
The website description is very apt. This is not a mushroom for beginners and is something you want to work up to.

A review from a local customer who was unable to place his review from his account. I’ve copied it here word for word. Dreamer.
It was exciting to try a non cubensis mushroom—I’ve tried very few over the years. While I first wondered if the azurescens might help me channel Paul Stammet’s son, I instead settled for a series of transformative lessons while I ate these along the Northcoast Trail of Vancouver Island. While mushrooms always bring up the emotions I’ve been ignoring for a cathartic expression followed by a feeling of aliveness, these did it with notably more power than your more common Golden Teachers. Great experience, and one that asks for respect—probably not for the novice. Will keep these on hand.
