Though we briefly mentioned these mighty therapeutic mushrooms under the category of fungi that thrive on the surface of decaying wood, Psilocybe cyanescens or ‘Waves Shock’ nonetheless, deserve a spotlight of their own. As its name suggests, these mushrooms boast a large and flared, umbrella-like cap with rippled ridges, typically measuring 1.5-5 cm across.
Another primary definer is their copper-brown color that tends to fade into a paler yellow when they’re put to dry. Their gills produce a similar blue-ish tint when disturbed and contain up to 1.96% psilocybin, certainly putting these medicinal mushrooms at the top of our lists in terms of potency.
