Often media for bacteria is composed of specific chemicals, especially the carbon source (specific sugars, but also alcohols or acetones, etc.) is chosen to grow the specific bacteria type.

Fungii on the other hand, need balanced media, which contain not a specific chemical compound, but an extract of a plant or something like that, which is mostly a mixture of many thousands of compounds.
For example one of the standard media for fungii is MEA (Malt Extract Agar), which contains Malt extract, but also PDA (Potato Dextrose Agar) containing a potato extract.

If you want to buy a medium for cubensis or for anyother mushroom (Pan cyan, Psi azure, etc.), get one that is for fungii or MEA or PDA. Do not buy a medium that is for a specific microorganism. If you are not sure, get a medium that is thought for a broad bandwith of organism. The ones for testing something you don't know what it is, and what it like to eat ;)

I hope this helped you,
