We provide laboratory grade mushroom spores and laboratory equipment. Our spores are in surgically sterile 10cc syringes.

We take GREAT PRIDE in providing OUTSTANDING CUSTOMER SERVICE in addition to overseeing the highest graded quality of mushroom spores available online. We sell psilocybin and gourmet mushrooms.

Q: Do you offer advice on growing or grow kits?

Unfortunately we cannot give growing advice or provide grow kits, any such questions might be better suited for people who specialize in those sorts of things. We have heard that the seasoned professionals at Midwest Grow Kits have practically re-defined “at home” Mycology when it extends past standard research.

Q: Are these “prints”?

No. These are surgically sterile 10cc syringes containing actual mushroom spores.

Q: How much specimen do I need for research?

Generally researchers will choose to use 1cc of specimen per research media (slide), which allows for 10 slides per research session. IF you have 10 + slides you would need 2 syringes.

Q: Will you ship spores internationally?

Only to Canada. No other countries. We serve customers in: USA and Canada (Canadian residents please email us to place order).

Georgia, or Idaho: We are unable to ship research strains to you. We apologize. Contact your local representative and request to have it added to the ballot!

Q: My order status says “processing”, has my item shipped?

All orders will read “processing” until the item ships. At which point you will receive a completion email stating the item has shipped.

Q: I’m not ready to research with my spore syringes yet, how do I store them?

It’s recommended that you store any unused syringe in the original mail packaging, in a dark, non-directly-heated location. Not too hot, not too cool is ideal.We recommend researching as soon as possible, however these will maintain viability past 9 months. In some cases even longer.

Q: How secure is my privacy if I order?

EXTREMELY SECURE AND PRIVATE. All records of any orders are destroyed after a short period of time; this enables us to provide customer service to our researchers. We keep no records of your order past this point and NEVER possess any of the credit card information used during purchase. We do not collect, resell, or divulge any personal information, including: Name, Address, Phone numbers, email addresses or items ordered, to any business or individuals, ANYWHERE. We also take all orders through a 128-bit encrypted secure server denoted by the yellow padlock on the bottom right side of your screen.
