Xico spores are suspended in aqueous solution within a 10ml luer lok syringe. Each spore syringe will arrive in a individual zipper bag. One sterile 16g needle for application of spore solution on a microscopy slide is included, per item. A syringe tip cap is installed to prevent leaking.
Psilocybin Mushroom Spores are legal in most U.S. States. Georigia and Idaho have banned these spores. To know if spores are legal in your state, please see our post about psilocybin mushroom spore legality by state.
Cultivaton of Psilocybe cubensis mushrooms is illegal in all states. Federal law also prohibits cultivation of psilocybe spores. A license issued by the D.E.A. is required to legally cultivate this species of mushroom spores.
Species: Psilocybe Cubensis
Cap: 25-100mm in diameter. Shape of cap is flat to convex. Becomes convex with age. Color is Dark red to gold.
Stem: 150-250mm in length. Somtimes the base of the stem is enlarged. Color is yellow to buff that has a
reflective sheen. Sometimes the stem has a brown stripe that runs the entire length vertically. Stem bruises green to
blue where injured.
Gills: Color of the gills is greyish before spore production. Once the mushroom becomes mature the gills turn
purple to black in color.

Product is intended for microscopy, taxonomy identification, or collection purposes only. Spores are not intended for human consumption.
When handling a spore syringe in preparation for viewing spores through a microscope, always observe proper sanitation procedures. Wear gloves. Wipe your gloves and spore syringe with isopropyl alcohol to sanitize those parts. Before performing any microscopic research studies, be sure to sanitize the dispensing needle, which is a simple process. Put the tip of
the needle into the flame of a butane lighter until it turns red. Then squirt a small amount of the spore solution out of the syringe to cool the needle.
