The Psilocybe Cubensis mushroom has a long and exciting history. These mushrooms resemble other types of mushrooms, yet they are considered to have unique properties which are still under scientific scrutiny.
Due to the still mysterious nature of these natural products, they represent a good subject of study for those passionate about microscopy, which has been around for a very long time since the 17th century. Microscopy can be applied to the study of microorganisms such as the unique psilocybe spores.
The light sources and the types of lenses can influence the exact kind of microscopy which can be applied, namely phase-contrast, dark field, bright field, fluorescence, and so on.
One of the interesting facts about this type of mushroom is that their appearance varies among different species. Also, although many of the mushrooms that contain psilocybin get bluish when they are touched or get bruised, this is not the case for all magic mushrooms. Still, at the base of the stem, there can be a certain degree of blue discoloration.
Another fascinating fact about Psilocybe Cubensis is that the chemical compound known as “psilocybin” can be contained in the stem and the cap of more than two hundred different types of magic mushrooms.
