MEXICAN DUTCH KING STRAIN
Our Mexican Dutch King mushroom spores syringe microscopy kit includes 10ml of authentic Mexican Dutch King spores in a syringe, individually packaged, with a sterile needle included. Sometimes you come across one of those spore strains that has a really interesting origin. In the case of the Mexican Dutch King strain, it’s a story that’s two worlds apart. Sure to delight amateur microscopists with an interest in the ways humans can shape the natural world—and the distances an organism can travel in the process—this beginner-grade spore strain is potent and beautiful to behold under the microscope.
THE MEXICAN DUTCH KING MUSHROOM STRAIN?
Mushrooms from the unique Mexican Dutch King spore syringe have origins in Mexico. Thought to be derived from a Psilocybe cubensis (or perhaps Psilocybe mexicana) found in Central America, this cubensis strain was developed by mycologists in Amsterdam. Mature specimens were even sold in cafes there before the laws changed in the Netherlands, making this spore strain a rich study of not only biology, but anthropology as well.
MEXICAN DUTCH KING SPORES ARE A GREAT WAY FOR AMATEUR MICROSCOPISTS TO LEARN
For amateur microscopists interested in learning about not only spores but the ways fungi find their place in our world, Mexican Dutch King is a wonderful way to start. Students of taxonomy can compare the microstructures of these spores to the strains thought to be its predecessors. Surely some similarities will arise—how wonderful it is to pair the familiar with elements of the unknown. If you’d like to learn more about what we like to call fascinating fungi, we invite you to read articles on this site to learn what spores like those of our Mexican Dutch King strain can do in the wild, and the wonderful things that mushrooms are capable of. Microscopists aren’t the only ones taking note either, as psilocybin spores research has been picking up in a big way among the medical community.
