Panaeolus Cyanescens

Common Names: Blue Meanies, Pan Cyan









Panaeolus cyanescens, commonly known as the Blue Meanie, is a potent mushroom species known for its psychedelic properties. While Panaeolus cyanescens is primarily recognized for its psychedelic effects, there is growing interest in its potential mental health benefits. Research on psilocybin-containing mushrooms, including Panaeolus cyanescens, suggests that they may have therapeutic potential for various mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Psilocybin is believed to work by influencing serotonin receptors in the brain, leading to profound and transformative experiences that can facilitate emotional healing and personal growth. It's important to note that the therapeutic use of Panaeolus cyanescens or any psychedelic substance should always be conducted under the guidance of trained professionals in a controlled and supportive environment. Furthermore, legal and ethical considerations must be taken into account.

  • Chemical analysis, moisture-preserving, and antioxidant activities of polysaccharides from Pholiota nameko by fractional precipitation

  • This study explored Pholiota nameko (P. nameko) polysaccharide fractions, PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80, purified by gradient concentrations of ethanol (40%, 60%, and 80% (v/v)). The physicochemical properties, functional group composition, moisture-preserving, and antioxidant ability were determined. The results indicate that the polysaccharide contents of PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80 are 45.12%, 78.04%, and 72.22%, respectively, while the β-glucan, protein, and uronic acid contents are 20.20%, 12.20%, and 10.15%, respectively; 11.24%, 14.53%, and 26.94%; and 5.99%, 7.73%, and 3.78%. Furthermore, PNP-60 has better moisture absorption, while PNP-80 has better antioxidant ability and H2O2-injury resistance activity

  • Great Southern Land: The Maritime Exploration of Terra Australis

  • During the eighteenth century, today's Australia was not conflated with Terra Australis, as it sometimes was in the twentieth century.

  • The Principles of Mushroom Growing and Mushroom Spawn Making

  • Benjamin Minge Duggar was an American plant physiologist. Surprisingly, he is best remembered for his contribution to another discipline, through his discovery in 1945 of chlortetracycline, the first of the tetracycline antibiotics, from a soil bacterium growing in allotment soil.


  • In May 1950 my husband undertook a pilgrimage to remote Serignan to see the Fabre water-colors, and he picked out more than a dozen for our book. Two years later, finding himself again in Paris, he called once more on Professor Heim, who by now had become the Director of the Museum National, a worthy successor in that great post to the illustrious Buffon. Indeed, he sits at Buffon's very table, in Buffon's very room, where the elegant i8th century furnishings have remained unchanged, the walls adorned with the graceful i8th century oils of Jean-Jacques Bachelier, depicting the birds of the several continents.


  • THIS book is addressed to those who love mushrooms, who love the whole rich world of wild mushrooms in the same way that many love the flowers of the field and the birds of the air. Our public is certainly one of the smallest in the English-speaking world, but no matter. We invite all to share our joys, and if few respond, we are not less happy for being few to savor the secret.
