Unraveling the Magic
Mysteries of Mushroom Spores

Magic mushroom spores are the tiny reproductive cells that produce magic mushrooms. Think of them as the seeds that hold the key to unlocking the wonders of this phenomenal realm.

  • Extremely small; visible only with a microscope.
  • Each product contains hundreds of thousands of spores.
  • Ideal for both researchers and hobbyists.
  • Perfect tool for delving into the world of mycology.

What’s in Our Psilocybe Cubensis Mushroom Spore Syringes?

Great research begins with great materials. Below are some of the components, and processes, that
make up our spore syringes.

  • 1
    High Quality Spores

    Each of our strains is selected from an isolated genetics to give you the best possible genetics.

  • 3
    Tested for Viability

    Studying dead spores is no fun which is why we’re constantly pulling syringes to test them for viability, as well as possible contaminants.

  • 2
    Deionized Type 2 Water

    This acts as a reagent for the spores and helps to prevent unwanted contaminants from making a home in the syringe.

  • 4
    Labeled for Identification

    Each syringe is clearly labeled with the strain’s genetic identity, ensuring precise identification for research and educational purposes.


Curious Which Strains to Study?

Let us help guide your decision as a researcher when trying to figure out which strains to study.

Select Your Strain with our Strain Review Series.

When undertaking a new scientific task, such as studying mushroom spores under a microscope, having thorough knowledge is essential. Our Strain Review Series provides an introductory overview of the different strains we offer for research purposes. While the series is not exhaustive, it is designed to give researchers a starting point in their study. Find detailed reviews of each strain by visiting our Shop page.

Frequently Asked Questions

Confused? Not to worry! Below are some of the most commonly asked questions we receive. For a more complete list of questions, click on the button below.

Are magic mushroom spores legal?

Psilocybin, or “magic,” mushroom spores are legal in most of the United States. There are three states (CA, ID, & GA) that still don’t allow the sale of magic mushroom spores, and sales will be denied to these states. All of our mushroom spores are intended for microscopy and taxonomy research purposes only.

Do your spores contain psilocybin or psilocin?

No. Psilocybin and psilocin are active compounds that are found in certain species of magic mushrooms. Our spores do not contain these compounds.

What is microscopy?

Microscopy, simply put, is the magnified observation of a very small object. This is achieved through the use of a microscope and can be used to view cells, bacteria, or spores such as magic mushroom spores.

What comes with a magic mushroom syringe kit?

A mushroom spore syringe kit comes with a 10cc syringe pre-filled with your choice of spore solution, as well as an alcohol swab and a sterile lancet for research purposes.

Where do you ship?

We currently ship to the USA. Your order will arrive directly to your mailbox, or any other address you choose (excluding those within the states of CA, ID, & GA). Once the courier confirms your order is on its way to you, you will receive an email including a link to track your order.

What are mushroom spores?

Mushroom spores are the equivalent of seeds in the fungus world. Just like plants have seeds, the mushroom species reproduce and spread through their spores. They are small, tiny reproductive units capable of giving rise to a new fungal growth, under the right conditions. Due to their size, they are invisible to the human eye, therefore if you would like to collect them you would need specialized tools and techniques. The spore print technique is one of the most popular ways to collect spores directly from the gills or pores of the mushroom cap.

Even though widely used, this technique carries a higher risk of contamination. Another way to make sure you get the highest-quality spores is to buy them from a reputable source such as FungusHead.

Where can I buy mushroom spores?

You can buy mushroom spores right here at FungusHead. If you are a beginner, take a look at our psilocybe spore syringes. Spore syringes contain mushroom spores suspended in a sterile liquid solution, typically distilled water. Spore syringes are easy to handle, distribute spores evenly, and are suitable for starting new mushroom cultures. We offer a wide variety of mushroom strains and species, such as Golden teacher, B+ Cubensis, Blue Meanie, and Jedi Mind Fuck.

If you are looking into mushroom spores for identification purposes, we have spore swabs. Spore swabs consist of sterile cotton swabs that have been rubbed on a mature mushroom cap to collect spores. Our swabs are then sealed in a sterile container, and you can use them to create spore prints, and identify mushroom species.

Finally, if you are an advanced researcher, check out our latest product – liquid culture. Liquid culture is a more advanced technique that accelerates mycelium growth but requires more experience, equipment, and care to avoid contamination.

What is the best way to store mushroom spore syringes?

The best way to store mushroom spore syringes is to put them in a refrigerator, with no exposure to light. Also, spore syringes should be kept in an airtight container, labeled properly and without frequent opening. If you follow these rules, you will prolong the shelf life of your spores, and make sure they are vital over a longer period.


This is the second site I tried, spores delivered on time and they worked 3 for 3 will never use another site!

Easy to make order and receive merchandise. Well packaged and looking forward to experimenting now.

I had a bit of trouble with my order, but the customer service was helpful in resolving the issue.

I’ve been a fan of the Golden Teacher strain for years, and I was excited to try out the spore syringe.

I’m new to microscopy research and the FH Beginner Syringe Mixpack was the perfect introduction.
