Identifying Magic Mushroom Strains
Before we get into it, I would like to say that If you are out hunting for Psilocybiin mushrooms, I highly suggest bringing someone with experience foraging for mushrooms.
A mistaken identification can be dangerous as there are many that are poisonous.
If you happen to find some mushrooms in which you are not sure of its identity, take a picture of it, note down the location, climate, what its grown on, as well as any special traits or characteristics you notice.
There are many communities online that can help you identify mushrooms. They are pretty friendly and you can sometimes get an answer to your questions within a day!
Alright, so lets get to it. Here are some good reads that explain a few tips and guidelines to follow when foraging for mushrooms.
