Panaeolus cyanescens or more commonly known as Pan Cyans is another cosmic genus within the fungi kingdom. I’ll save the word salad for everyone by not starting with the fancy words as to appear extra. The topic is Pan Cyans, to plant the seed or spore, as they say on this cosmic research project. Let us dive into it. The obvious trend of entry level mycology enthusiasts begin to ask about them more often. The patterns are evident that this will become a high interest level topic.
What is most known about this petite whimsical convex capped mushroom is that they are highly potent. When compared to typical Psiloybe Cubensis that we are most familiar with, tryptamine levels can reach twice to three times higher. Tryptamine in this context is used to identify diverse types of psychedelic compounds, with our topic we are looking at psilocybin and psilocin. If that is something that interests you use keywords (Psychedelic Tryptamine List) to populate relative information, yet another rabbit hole to progress through.
Okay so they are a potency super punch, but why would this be such a huge benefit to them when all you must do is absorb more of the two compounds to have similar effects? The most obvious is that for medical research and domestication development these fungi fruits would create consolidation opportunities in future developing industries and markets. What would once take for example a 12x12 at home set up to produce similar potency results by weight could be expanded by three-fold with a third the space. These of course are rough draft ideas and concepts but apart from the potency and space what else can this genus have to offer?
We have continuously been in development to find suitable substrates for all types of fungi. The ultimate mission is to reuse, breakdown and reuse again, and again. It almost seems like another pipe dream but the reality in this obstacle is beginning to phase into our existence with the constant innovations of today's collective data of bio designers and engineers. The reason I mention this is because the use of materials used to coax this mycelium into fruiting conditions is universally accessible. One of the world's most ancient biomaterials, straw/grass in combination with dung-based compost. But many already know that fungi mycelium responds well to these materials, but the bigger picture is the mental health can start to be tackled by a petite whimsical convex capped fungi fruit that would cost a fraction of traditional western medicines.
So why is this genus of fungi looked upon as a challenge to most? I wouldn't be listing reasons why this might be a challenge put more so simply staring at it in the face with you. In most cases most of us would have never thought of being able to research and cultivate our own food and medicine. Yet here we are further expanding our knowledge and accessibility to evolve. The process is as simple as accepting the change in the recipe of the materials being used and parameters for fruiting conditions adjusted. It is easier said than done, but as stated in the beginning I am simply planting the seed or spore.
Of course, there are many applications and variables to this concept that many of you are already considering by reading this, and that is what I hoped to accomplish, to inspire the questions, curiosities, and ideas for solutions.
For your cosmic existence, Myceli Unlimiti.
