The Blue Meanie strain is thought to have originated in Southeastern Australia from the Psilocybe cubensis species. It gets its name from blue bruising which occurs wherever the body is impacted. Its visual characteristics include medium/large fruiting bodies with thick, dense stalks and a golden caramel to tan, often white speckled cap. Blue Meanie is also a common name for Panneolus cyanscens (a different mushroom species).
The overall experience associated with Blue Meanies lasts 4-8 hours, with normal peaking frequency. They are intensely euphoric with a psychoactive high. Users report high feelings of euphoria, intense auditory and visual hallucinations as well as a heavy body buzz.
