You should be able to find some Psilocybe cyanescens in the fall. Don't look in the forest, look where man has made his mark. I've found them in gardens alongside the wood that makes up the bed.
You may also find some Ps. stunzii. Look around where chips have been used in gardens , etc.

Goos luck!

Alaska is a big state, you don't say what region you're looking in.

If it is any region besides Southeast, I think you're S.O.L.

I've traveled in Alaska off and on for 20some years and am a fairly experienced forager. I have never collected an active psilocybe in Alaska, nor heard a trustworthy report of any. Lots of interesting edibles, and lots of amanitas, but no (active) psilocybes.

I have never foraged in southeast Alaska, but have been there (Juneau, Petersburg, Sitka) many times. The climate seems possible for cyanescens, could be.

Best bet is to check with the nearest agricultural extension or U of A campus and see if they offer classes. Most mycology types aren't too stuffy about an interest in psilocybes if your interest is genuine.

There are three known species of psychoactive mushrooms in Alaska.

The first one is Amanita muscaria, which does not contain psilocybine or psilocine.

The second is Psilocybe cubensis whjich is grown indoors illicityly.

The third species is Panaeolus subbalteatus. Which occurs naturally in manure and or rotted hay; at race tracks and riding stables and in hay compost heaps, during the early spring rains and gain in the late fall.

mjshroom. So far no one has collected Psilocybe cyanescens in Alsska and Psilocybe stuntzii is only known from the immediate Pacific Northwest, from Vancouver, B. C. to San Francisco.
