About Blue Ringer Mushrooms

Psilocybe stuntzii, also known as Stuntz's blue legs and blue ringers is a rare psilocybin mushroom that only grows on the West Coast of the US and Canada, having psilocybin and psilocin as main active compounds. It is not especially popular among recreational users, although it does have the advantage of fruiting into the winter when growing wild. Blue Ringers are also wood-loving mushrooms and prefer to live on decaying debris, fresh mulch, and wood chips. They can be found in grassy areas, as well, like fresh sod and well-manicured lawns, or along roads, paths, and gardens. Its name “blue ringer” or “blue legs” comes from the significant bluing reaction that occurs when handled. This strain tends to provide an overall moderate, but potentially long-lasting, psychoactive experience.


The effects of taking Blue Ringers are essentially the effects of taking psilocybin, a psychoactive substance found in many mushroom species and used for recreational, spiritual, and medicinal purposes. Medical use has not been well-researched yet, and so its effectiveness has not been confirmed, but many people claim it has helped them with various conditions from anxiety to migraine headaches, often when more mainstream treatments had failed.
Known effects include hallucinations, changes in mood and thought pattern, nausea, and trouble with coordination and balance. Often, the changes in mood take the form of euphoria and a feeling of connection, but not always. The altered thought patterns can lead to important personal insights, though wisdom is never as simple as eating a mushroom. The experience can vary dramatically depending on the dose and the mindset and surroundings of the user.

Dangerous effects and even fatalities are rare but possible, especially in children.


Blue Ringers are much less potent than most other popular psychoactive mushrooms, requiring doses almost ten times the size of that used for P. cubensis to get the same effect.


In general, doses must be much larger than needed for some of the more popular species to get the same effect, however dosage calculations must always be regarded as rough estimates. Psilocybin content can vary, as can human sensitivity to psilocybin.
There is not just one dosage for psychoactive mushrooms in any case. Most people recognize three to five dosage levels, depending on what kind of experience the user wants—“microdose, beginner, experienced, and heroic” is a common way to express the range of options. Given the low potency of Blue Ringers, it may be a better option for micro dosing.

Toxicity, Safety, & Side Effects

There are several different types of risks associated with using Blue Ringers. Psilocybin itself is a relatively safe way to alter the mind, but the keyword here is “relatively.” Bad reactions, such as extreme anxiety, vomiting, and convulsions are rare but possible Bad reactions are more likely at higher doses, and the risks can be minimized by taking a few, simple steps.
The accidental ingestion of psilocybin-containing mushrooms is another matter. Even in the best-case scenario, unexpected and unwanted hallucinations could be very bad, and dangerous reactions are especially common in children. Accidental ingestion should be treated as a case of mushroom poisoning.

Misidentification is another source of risk.

First, one of the other psychoactive mushrooms could be mistaken for Blue Ringers, a problem since many of the others are much more potent. The user could end up taking ten times the dose they really want, a recipe for disaster.

Or, one of the dangerously-toxic look-alikes, such as the Deadly Galerina (Galerina marginata), could be mistaken for Blue Ringers, an even bigger disaster. There are people who have died by mixing up Deadly Galerina with one or another “magic mushroom.” It is possible to survive such a mistake with aggressive medical intervention and luck, but most victims don’t.
It’s not that Blue Ringer is especially difficult to properly ID (it isn’t), it’s that too many people skip steps and eat mushrooms that look right without actually going through all the necessary steps. Do not make that mistake. Identify every single mushroom before eating!
