Psilocybe cubensis is a types of psychedelic mushroom whose principal energetic compounds are psilocybin as well as psilocin. Commonly called shrooms, magic mushrooms, gold halos, dices, or gold caps, it belongs to the fungus family Hymenogastraceae as well as was formerly known as Stropharia cubensis. It is one of the most popular psilocybin mushroom due to its wide distribution and convenience of growing. Psilocybe cubensis is commonly known as gold top, gold top or gold cap in Australia, sacred mushroom or blue mushroom in Brazil, as well as San Ysidro or Palenque mushroom in the United States and Mexico, while the term "magic mushroom" has been put on hallucinogenic mushrooms as a whole. An usual name in Thai is "Hed keequai", which translates as "mushroom which appears after water buffalo defecates". Psilocybe cubensis is found on cow dung, sugar cane compost or abundant field soil, with mushrooms appearing from February to December in the northern hemisphere, and also November to April in the southerly hemisphere. Psilocybe cubensis expands naturally in subtropical and also tropical problems, usually near cattle as a result of the excellent conditions they offer the growth of the fungi. The cow typically consumes grains or grass-covered with the spores of psilocybe cubensis and the fungus will begin to germinate within the dung. Mushrooms such as Psilocybe cubensis are simple to grow inside your home and also grow on many substratums such as coffee, brown rice straw, sawdust, and also flour. Rye grain is claimed to be one of the most suitable substrate for expanding Psilocybe cubensis. While expanding mushrooms inside a container, it is advised to leave the container at area temperature level or "case" it with dirt. Research studies were carried out where an eco controlled wind tunnel as well as a computer program were made use of to identify the influence of moisture on the private basidiocarps of Psilocybe cubensis which assisted in mapping their development as well as growth. The transpiration and growth of the mushroom was greatly affected because of the humidity of the air and the transpiration was accelerated at greater moistures while light had no effect to the development. Faster growth was observed at greater humidities. It was additionally discovered that misting boosted both the development as well as transpiration rates in the growing process of Psilocybe cubensis.
