Comes with 10cc of Xico 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.
Initially I thought these would be another one with an odd made-up name but I then engaged my brain and figured “Xico” might be something to do with Mexico! I buckled down, did a bit of reading, and yup, that’s where they’re from. Like so many other cool mushrooms, these were popularised by Alan Rockefeller, who printed the mushroom and spread those prints far and wide (a very good egg indeed). Apparently these are liable to grow decently large in the wild, which is always nice to hear. It is a little known Orang-U-Fact that all Orangutans favourite spirit is Tequila (alright I’m talking about me here), which is a vastly underrated drink. Try a Paloma, you’ll thank me later. Or a Michelada if you’re feeling like you need to imbibe some vegetables.
There’s a whole lot of cool things to like about Mexico, although it always seems to get stereotyped down to Burritos, Salsa, and Sombreros in the UK media, much like the fucking awful The Great British Bake Off episode where everyone was a dumbshit. For example, colour TV was invented in Mexico, which was immediately used by it’s inventor Guillermo González Camarena to change the channel over from The Great British Bake Off before deciding that there was nothing ever on anyway and reading a cool book instead. Don’t fact check me bro, it’s mostly true. You’ve learned something cool today!
Ideally, keep these Xico 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 spore syringes have been produced in the UK 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!
