Do cubes grow on any cow shit (all over the world)?
Do they, or are there some cows that don't (even the grain fed ones)

They only grow on dung, either cow, horse, elephant...etc. Only in the right conditions. Warm, humid, and usually wet, like Florida and subtropical areas.

They grow in tropical and subtropical climated from Southern Georgia to Brazil and argentina, Australia to India and South East Asia. They grow primariy in cow, gaur and buffalo manure, rarely in horse and sheep manure and that is extremely rare in those later two habitats.
The proimary manured shrooms are Psilocybe cubensis and Psilocybe cubcubensis and thriteen species of Copelandia and to a lesser degree panaeolus subbalteatus.

These are the primary dung shrooms.

Then you have the pasture shrooms which include liberty caps, P. strictipis, P. fimetaria, P. stuntzii and P. baeocystis, which also produce well in lawns and grassy habitats.

Then there are the woodchip varieties such as the four australian species P. subaeruginosa, P. australiana, P. tasmainana and P. eucalyptus, and in the Americas and Europe, P. cyanescens, P. azurescens, P. bohemica, and sevral others. Conocybe cyanopus and Conocybe smithii in oregon, Washington and Europe grow from sphaghum moss along streams and riverbanks in grassy pasturelands along side the river areas.
P. pelliculosa loves alderwood c in clearcuts as do the dealdy Galerina species, carot cups and Naematolomas.

And the liberty cap range extends from Pune, India to Peru in South America, Italy at four thousand meters elevation, throughout Europe, Great Britain, baltic countru=ies and Russia. probably also occurs in Ch8na and of course in the Pacific Northwest and northeastern USA including Canada in Bew Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Nerfoundland and Prince Edward Island.

The copelandia mushrooms are common in most island groups such as the Solomon, Micronesia, Samoa Tajhiti, Mielenesia, the Hawaiian Islands, Caribbean and Mediterranean regions.

A few grow in Oregon and Washington and when I say a few, once in twenty-five years I have only seen a toatl of six Copelandia mushrooms in Washington state. In this state the Pn. subbalteatus, although common in manure in some areas of the world (Hawaii at 3000 meters on Haleakala, Maui is common in ORegon and Washington in rotted haystacks and compost heaps, although recently Joshua of Oregon came across a whole lawn of them in Oregon.,

Maybe that will give you an idea of habitat. currently there are now more than 190 species of shrooms with psilocybine and 20 more species of mushrooms which contain other halucinogenic compounds other than psilocine/psilocybine.


And again regarding Cu ensis. Not every field willhave them in it. You can go through 50 fields brfore finding one with a good crop, but the field down the road 100 meters may never have thema at all.

You make it sound like an ode to the mushroom.

You mention libs being found in the north east US. Do you know if they have ever been found in the New England area?
Given their wide distribution and climate preference it would seem New England is a likely place to hunt for them. I have been able to find zero first hand information about New England actives. Seems like most people don't believe we have any besides Pan subs. Is it possible they are out there and nobody's bothered to look?

i have heard anecdotal reports. also, it stands to reason that if they could be found as far north as Nova Scotia then they could also be found throughout the new england area as the climates are, if slightly tamer, quite simmilar.

...and since when did everybody start saying 'azzies'? Did I miss a memo?
