What Is Blue Meanies
Blue Meanies mushrooms are renowned for their high potency. They contain significant amounts of psilocybin and psilocin, making them one of the strongest psychedelic mushroom strains. The exact potency can vary based on growing conditions, genetics, and other factors, but it is generally advisable to approach Blue Meanies mushrooms with caution and start with lower doses. Laussman & Sigrid Meier-Giebing reported in 2010 the presence of psilocybin at 2.5% and psilocin at 1.2% in Blue Meanies. In comparison, the popular Psilocybe cubensis mushroom has psilocybin and psilocin content in the range of 0.13%-0.42%, making Blue Meanies significantly more potent. Other researchers have also found a significant presence of serotonin, urea, and baeocystin, the latter which has been thought to be psychoactive as well.
What is a Blue Meanies trip like?
Just like with a psilocybin mushroom, you can expect to experience perceptual changes, synesthesia, emotional shifts, and a distorted sense of time. Perceptual changes can include visuals such as halos around lights and objects as well as geometric patterns when your eyes are closed. You may also experience vivid colors, tracers, distorted vision, and a sense of the world breathing around you.
Thoughts and emotions can change, too. It’s not uncommon to have a sense of openness to thoughts and feelings that you avoid in your everyday life, as well as a sense of wonder and delight with the world around you, the people in your life, and your own mind. You may also feel a sense of peace and connection with the world.
Strong emotions, both enjoyable and challenging, are common during a journey. When undesirable feelings do arise, it’s best not to resist but rather let the feelings run their course. Many people who have reported the presence of strong negative emotions also report feeling a simultaneous sense of calm acceptance and detachment, especially if they don’t resist and remind themselves that the emotions are temporary. Resisting the emotions can lead to a “bad trip.”
Always ensure you have a proper set and setting before tripping, as this is one of the most important steps for having an enjoyable experience. Do not trip if undergoing high amounts of stress or mental anguish, and be in a safe, supportive environment, preferably with an experienced trip sitter.
