We are surrounded by chemical substances, which can be very useful for medical research. And mushrooms are among the most commonly spread types of life forms. Being eukaryotic organisms, they are different from bacteria. What they do is absorb organic compounds from the surrounding world through a process called “osmosis”.
In order to use laboratory grade mushrooms for medical research, you must obtain a license from the Drug Enforcement Administration and also to take into account some strict growing conditions. These requirements may vary from one state to another. Thus, Georgia and Idaho specifically forbid the transport and sale of magic mushrooms. In California, on the other hand, it is legal to commercialize shroom spores, but solely for scientific studies, not for personal use. As a matter of fact, this is the general situation in most parts of the USA.
Laboratory grade mushrooms are the mushroom spores which are usually presented in the form of syringe spores. These spores are cultivated in special laboratories. Thus, the conditions in which they can be cultivated need to be sterile for the inoculation to be properly made. The microscopy media room is another important part of a medical facility which specializes in studying psilocybe mushrooms.
