Psilocybe Mushrooms: Legalality In Canada?
    #1534514 - 05/09/03 01:58 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I've noticed that theirs a couple mycelium-based grow kits in Canada for sale.
I wonder if mycelium that grow psilocybe mushrooms are legal in Canada.

In Canada, The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act govern this stuff.

The act states that psilocybin(e) and psilocin are illegal to possess.

That?s pretty clear. What?s not clear is if mycelium is legal to possess. I've heard from more then one source that mycelium contains the hallucinogenic indoles we all love. I've also read from Lycaeum 'Advanced mycelia do contain psilocybin and psilocin?.

Soooooo, the question is: Do 100% colonized PF Cakes contain psilocybin(e) or psilocin at this stage, do they contain it when the cake is fruiting? And if they do contain these substances, does anyone know of any legal precedents concerning this.

Also, anyone familiar with Canadian law, could one get charged with intent to manufacture or something like that for possessing mycelium?

Thanks, Hyperi0n

the answer to your question is yes, the mycelium alone contains psilocybin. I agree with mushmaster that in all likelihood it's illegal tho.

Growing and fresh mushrooms used[i/] to be legal in Canada (that includes growing mycelium).

That changed when the CDSA came into effect a few years back, now any stage of mushroom that contains psilocybin is illegal.
