Comes with 10cc of Mazapatec spores, an 18g needle to get your spores onto the slides, and an alcohol wipe so you can ensure that your microscope is super clean.
So this one’s a bit weird – it seems to be called both Mazapatec and Mazatapec depending on what your source is. Who knows! We’re going with Mazapatec, because we’ve already printed up all the labels! These have reportedly been used down in South America by shamans, for hundreds of years. Shamans = criminals, I guess. Aren’t nature crimes weird? Imagine someone trying to haul a shaman off to prison just for trying to seek a bit of spiritual truth. Bonkers.
I’ve seen these Mazapatec spores described as “tough and aggressive” colonisers online, so take that as you will. Obviously don’t go doing any of that kind of shit with them, look at them under the microscope! They’re another Psilocybe Cubensis phenotype, so they will be pretty easy to check out with your no-doubt amazing microscope. Accessibility in mycology is important to me, which is partly why I stock a lot of the various Cubensis spores like Natal Super Strength – keeping things simple is cool. These prints actually do come from all the way over that side of the world, which is nice!
Ideally, keep these Mazapatec spores refrigerated, where they will happily last a couple of years. Magic mushroom spores are tough like that – don’t let them freeze though! Failing that, you can keep them in a nice dark cupboard where they’ll be just fine for at least six months. They’re pretty simple to store. You can even use them multiple times, just replace the needle cap back on (don’t remove the needle as that’s one more chance for contaminants to get in there), and the next time you go to use them, heat the needle up with a lighter until it glows red. Simple! You could even put them back into the supplied bag if that’s your jam.
All microscopy samples have been produced using a flowhood in order to make sure that what you see under the microscope is exactly what’s supposed to be there and nothing else – just premium spores!
