So, in the words of Jerry Seinfeld:
“What is the deal with Spore Syringes?“
Basically, it’s a great way to store spores from a whole variety of mushrooms, from your gourmets, such as Turkey Tail, Reishi, and the various types of Oyster mushroom, all the way to your funky psychoactive mushrooms such as Psilocybe Cubensis or Psilocybe Semilanceata (better known as Liberty Caps!).
So the reason for the syringes and needles etc is just because it’s a great way to ensure sterility in the product. Medical grade equipment means that you know for a fact that you’re starting off in the best and cleanest of ways.
Spore Syringes and the UK
Here’s the dealio: in the UK, it’s totally against the law for you to grow, possess, think about or lust after any kind of mushroom that contains Psilocybin, like Psilocybe Cubensis, or Psilocybe Semilanceata. This isn’t the case in every country in the world, for example, in Brazil you can grow magic mushrooms to your heart’s content, but not here. So if you’re trying to buy magic mushrooms online in the UK, you are shit out of luck because you’d go to prison, and a pretty thing like you would get passed around like a gravy boat at Christmas. If you hint to me in messages that you’re going to be breaking the law, then I can’t and won’t sell you anything because I’m not getting involved in any shenanigans, I’ve seen Breaking Bad and it didn’t look like a good time to me!
However, you are absolutely allowed to have Psilocybe Cubensis spores in the UK (because the spores contain no Psilocybin at all). So, as long as you aren’t going to grow them, you can buy and collect as many varieties as you like. That’s why they can be posted through the Royal Mail and that’s why they can be sent through customs to the EU (or anywhere in the world), because they are 100% absolutely legal. I’ve checked this time and time again, and there are no restrictions on the spores!
They’ll keep for ages too, enough time for you to check them out under the microscope multiple times. At least six months at ambient temperatures, and in a fridge (careful not to freeze them at the back), two years is easily possible. People have reported growing gourmet mushroom spores after more than five years in the fridge so basically – they’ll keep for as long as you need!
“So what the fuck am I actually supposed to do with my Psilocybe Cubensis Spore Syringe?“
Lots of people like to have a look at them under their microscope. There’s quite a good community of these people on Reddit, especially at r/EuSporeHub, who like getting Psilocybe Cubensis spores under the microscope and taking photos of the spores jiggling about.
Failing that, you could drink it I guess, maybe use them for some kind of weird super expensive bath if you win the lottery or something, do some kind of medical-themed mini watergun fight I suppose? Basically, anything you like, at all, as long as you don’t try to grow any Psilocybe Cubensis mushrooms in the UK! It’s like piracy, man, it’s a crime that would undermine humanity as we know it.
To reiterate: I sell a legal product intended solely for legal use – do not do anything else with it, and absolutely 110% do not message me at all, via any platform, about illegal use. I will just have to block you and add your details to the “do not sell” list, and I’d much rather not do that.
