Blue Angel magic mushroom, is a psilocybe azurescens species of magic mushroom. It is one of the most potent magic mushrooms that thrive in the wild. It is also known by the names flying saucers, Azzies, or Indigo Psilocybe
Psilocybe azurescens are often referred to by a variety of common names: Azzies, Astoriensis, Flying Saucers, Blue Runners, Blue Angels, or Indigo Psilocybe. With their caramel-colored caps, bright white stems, and nipple-like structure in the center of the cap, Azurescens are quite distinctive in appearance.
Paul Stamets and his colleague Jochen Gartz formally describe the species in 1995 and named it “Psilocybe azurescens” after Staments' son - Azureus
Blue Angels grow naturally in the North American west coast, primarily Oregon, along the coastline near the Columbia River Delta. They have been found in Washington, California, and British Columbia. Their small natural distribution has led to a debate about whether they are an introduced species to the area; Stamets has suggested that they may have been introduced from debris washed down the Columbia from the old-growth forests upriver.
Blue angel magic shrooms (Azurescens) are closely related to Wavy Caps (Psilocybe cyanescens), Psilocybe allenii, the Australian species Psilocybe subaeruginosa, and New Zealand species Psilocybe weraroa. In appearance, they most closely resemble P. cyanescens and P. subaeruginosa
P. cubensis contain psilocybin and psilocin at 0.14–0.42 percent and 0.37–1.30 percent, respectively—whereas, P. azurescens contain approximately 1.78 percent psilocybin, 0.38 percent psilocin, and 0.35 percent baeocystin, according to Stamets and Gartz' account. Azurescens contain significantly more psilocybin than psilocin (psilocybin being more stable, deteriorating more slowly than psilocin) so that after a few months of storage in a cool dark environment, the mushrooms tend to retain most of their original potency.
