Mycologic studies focus on the scientific study of fungi. Whether you want to figure out how to grow larger quantities of edible mushrooms faster, or you’re looking at the development of efficient antidotes for the most dangerous mushrooms, all of that research, along with anything that looks at the growth, evolution and effects of mushroom species, can be covered under mycology.
The use of laboratory grade mushrooms has been an important part of the study of fungi that mycologists often emphasize.
A laboratory grade mushroom is essentially a mushroom that features high concentrations of active substances that can be used for medical purposes or various other applications. For example, a laboratory grade “magic” psilocybin mushroom will contain a higher concentration of psilocybin than most other psilocybe cubensis mushrooms.
Laboratory grade magic mushroom spores can be used efficiently to study the effects of the substance or to see how different concentrations of the extracts applied in various doses as part of trials and studies, will have an impact on patients’ health. This type of study, combined with cutting edge mycologic research, can lead to important breakthroughs in the understanding of medical compounds, poisons, psychedelic substances and a variety of other areas that might be associated with the hidden qualities of mushrooms.
